DNA coat length test: Go to the DDC (animal DNA testing) web site and order your free "cheek swab" DNA test kits. Dilligently swab your dog's inside cheek and place in the kit and mail to DDC. The cost of the test is $58.00 per dog (as of Sept 2013). Find out if your dog is a long coat carrier within two weeks.
Whelping- doppler chart: If you have a doppler, you will follow your pup's heart rates. Download this chart to easily record the rates on this printable chart. In Rottweilers you want to see above 180 bpm (beats per min.). Dropping into the 170's usually meens the pup is in stress. The average heart rates I see are 190-228.
Vaccine chart: This is the chart I use to keep track of my dog's pertinent information. I use a three ring binder that I keep updated and the chart is placed in the cover pocket. Inside I have xerox copies of all dog's health and title certificates including a photo on the front of each dog's secion. In the last pages I have a copy of each of my litter records. No matter where I go, a trip, show or Vet's office "everything's in there"!
