Nicole is joined by Good Breeder Shonnie Layland, who breeds Leonbergers under the program name Sinnsro Leonbergers. This episode is all about the critical process of carefully selecting foundation stock when beginning your breeding program. It takes a lot to start a breeding program the right way - from finding and choosing the right foundation dogs, to doing the right health testing, to learning everything you can about your breed.
Shonnie describes her journey with Leonbergers as she has built her breeding program - plus she teaches us a bit about the breed's history!
