We are Coast K9 Fertility Courses

We have been in the dog breeding business for over 30 years and there’s not much we haven’t seen or experienced. After running our own successful canine fertility clinic we have a wealth of knowledge and want to share that expertise with others who want to start their own breeding/ fertility journey. Whether you are looking for assistance with mating, pregnancy confirmation or microchipping your small furies (it doesn’t just have to be dogs), have a look at our range of courses or give us a call. We would love to hear from anyone interested in learning these new skills and if we can help, then all the better.  We have most courses to suit your needs and even some bespoke ones not listed. Moving forward we have private Facebook groups where you can ask any amount of questions about any subject, if we’re not about to answer, then someone there will help you. the support never ends. Get in touch for an informal chat

Just spent the day on the fertility course. Very interesting and enjoyable, Lorna is very down to earth and makes a sometimes difficult subject easy to understand. I think Lorna knows pretty much everything there is to know when it comes to canine fertility! She’s very knowledgeable and happy to share that knowledge.

Had a great course with Lorna at the weekend, learnt so much! But in a way that allowed me to understand every step, and it was great to get some hands on experience and practice with a trainer at hand! Highly recommended if you are considering taking the course

I highly recommend this course for anyone interested in this. I have done many courses over the years and was shocked how much I have genuinely learnt today with Lorna. Everything is explained in detail and not rushed in anyway. Lorna makes you feel at ease from the start, so anyone that is worried or anxious this is the perfect place to go. Thank you so much I will recommend you 5* from me.

Down to earth, spoke my language with regards to certain words and phrases, which made me laugh. No using of posh jargon and big words. Very friendly and approachable. I didn’t feel uncomfortable to ask any questions

The aftercare provided after the course had been completed. It’s not always easy to remember everything you learn on a course when it’s done in a day it can be overwhelming for a lot of people, so the fact you can contact the tutor and other people who have trained for tips and advice to further your knowledge on the things learnt on the course is really worth the most.

I already have recommended the course to a few people who have asked me where to learn. My main reason for recommending is because you actually learn on this course and things your unsure on soon become clear within the after care group.

Good amout of knowledge and reassuring that your not just left to it, I like the fact i can ask for advice down the line.

I was very sceptical about doing the course remotely, but was reassured a few times thats its just as good, I did alot of research in to courses and this was recommended on quite a few occasions, the course is clear and the Lorna is easy to speak to. Messages are replied to fast so im confident that ongoing support will be just as good.

Really enjoyed the fertility course.  Lorna is great at explaining topics in a way that makes it easy to grasp, some of the stuff I’d looked at before but hadn’t fully understood and this course just made everything much clearer.  Would recommend for total beginners or for people with a little experience, who just need things explained in detail but in an easy to grasp way. Took all the concern and worry out of it
