Fiona works closely with NSW and NZ Police

November 27, 2011

Fiona Hollinshead is the breeding consultant to the NSW Police Dog Unit and travels to Sydney to freeze semen from their valuable Police dogs. NZ and NSW work together to maintain their police dog genetics.

See our “Success Stories” for a picture of NZ Police’s Venus with her latest litter. Venus was inseminated by transcervical insemination using frozen thawed semen. This semen was frozen in Australia by Dr Fiona Hollinshead and imported into New Zealand. Venus naturally whelped 13 puppies – this is a huge number of puppies using frozen thawed semen. We are all thrilled with this successful outcome.
