Dog Breeder Evening Seminar - 20 February 2018

Now, in the supposed information era, there is much mis-information about dogs, and yet there is so much to learn.

“While ever I work with dogs I learn something new about them – everyday!” Dr Robert Zammit.

Consequently, we have embarked on the presentation of a series of seminars, gathering experts in the field of canine science, be it behaviour, nutrition, reproduction, genetics and the host of other headings under the husbandry and science of this species.

At the end of each seminar there will be question time on the topics followed by an open forum where you can ask various experts, including Dr Robert Zammit and others any questions that they may help you with or they may need to research before the next seminar.

The next seminar, in February, covers "Part 2- Rearing Puppies for Behavioural Brilliance", presented by Dr Le Hammer, AND the second lecture will be "Gastric Tympany and Volvulus" presented by Dr Luke Smith.

Tuesday, 20th February, 2018 

The Bill Spilstead Canine Complex

44 Luddenham Road, Orchard Hills

The lecture will commence at 7.00pm.
