Dr Meg Howe is the foremost puppy preparation and value adding consultant for breeders in the ethical dog breeding community. She is renown for helping responsible breeders triple their profitability while providing the best puppies money can buy, that also skyrocket owner loyalty and goodwill.
Dr Meg qualified as a veterinarian at Murdoch University, in Perth Western Australia in 1983. She then went on to conduct her own studies on the special relationship between people and their canine companions, for which she was awarded a PhD in 1993. Her research underlined the powerful role breeders have in influencing the lifetime health and behavior of their puppies, and ultimately owners’ satisfaction with and commitment to their dogs.
With 3 children under her belt and a fourth on the way by this time, Dr Meg devoted herself to staying at home to raise her young family while venturing into the world of dog breeding, focused on providing the best possible new furry family members for her owners.
Over the decades that followed, she has gained a reputation as the ethical breeding authority in Australia, and developed a 5-step system any breeder can use to experience the same level of success. She now mentors other breeders in her system plus educates owners on how to buy a healthy, well adjusted puppy that will give them a long life as their ideal canine companion.
Through publishing her articles and books, Dr Meg hopes to further her vision of “Better lives for dogs and their owners, one puppy at a time.”

The World NEEDS Great breeders
On the problem of unwanted dogs Dr Meg says “Most owners prefer – and are better off – adopting a puppy than an adult dog that often has been given a bad start to life, further traumatized by spending time in a shelter.”
Indeed, there is actually a shortage of desirable puppies.
“Overwhelmingly shelter dogs are not sourced from responsible dog breeders but unplanned litters borne of dogs owned by irresponsible owners. Forcing breeders to desex puppies prior to sale will be largely ineffective and hurt long term canine health and welfare.”
It is better she believes to strengthen the commitment and enjoyment owners experience by educating breeders on how to seize the considerable power they have to provide puppies with a great early childhood that prepares them for success as canine companions to humans.
“Dogs are an important part of our society. Owning the right dog improves quality of life in a myriad of ways. So people need great dogs. And great dogs come from great breeders.”
