EDUCATION

For several years, many breeders across the country bemoan the lack of formal training on the practice of breeding. The topics of interest to breeders now are those concerning animal health (disease screening tests, vaccinations, crisis management, birth, caring for kittens, weaning ...), feline behavior and also administration (coaching government, obligations, laws ...)

Breeders want to be equipped to face the challenges that lie ahead and call on their association, one which is based in Canada to their needs, respond to their requests and offers service training them currently cannot receive anywhere else.

We are proud to offer the following topics:
