The slide deck works best with Internet Explorer browser and advances to the next slide when you click the arrow below the slide or to the right of the screen. If you use Chrome browser, the slides do not advance with the arrow keys. Instead, type in the next slide number into the numbered box 1 of 10, 2 of 10, etc.
Much of the material for this course was taken from Dr. Root's book, "The Dog Breeder’s Guide to Successful Breeding and Health Management" (ISBN:1-4160-3139-1). There is also a Kindle Edition of the book available on the website that is slightly less expensive. Another text that she recommends as very helpful for dog breeders is "Canine Reproduction" by Phyllis Holst (ISBN 978-1-57779-114-0).
