Lia came in season early and although it messed up our plans a little, it’s actually perfect and will leave us more time to get ready for Crufts. With Levi being almost 11 years old, I wanted to get the timing spot on so decided to see a canine specialist in reproduction, Hector Heathcote from UK CLONE. The whole team was very helpful and knowledgeable – can highly recommend them. So we went up to Birmingham, tried to mate them Sunday and Monday and although both were up for it, we had no success and decided to do AI. Julie Gray from BREED MY DOG, a very experienced vet who also specialised in canine reproduction, was just amazing and after doing another progesterone test Monday, we were advices to do a second AI the following day. Levi’s sperm was very active and of good quality and according to the testes, the timing was just perfect. Now the waiting game begins….
