Hello! My name is Stephanie. 

I'm the creator and founder of Breeders Bootcamp and course instructor for Breeders Bootcamp Master Class. 


Meet Your Instructor


Stephanie Major, creator and founder of Breeders Bootcamp and the breeder behind Majors Dachshunds, has more than 15 years of experience in breeding and raising puppies. It is through this experience that she has come to understand the critical role breeders play during the first nine weeks of a puppy's life, and that there is much we can be doing to help each puppy develop a strong foundation.   

This is why Stephanie created the Master Class. She has a genuine desire to mentor and educate anyone who is looking to begin, or improve upon, their breeding program. She is a strong believer in good, better, best, and believes that there is always room for growth and learning. 

Stephanie’s passion for helping others will become evident as you join her in the Breeders Bootcamp Master Class, a living curriculum.  Each daily video will be added upon as questions are asked, new content is added, and all are able to share and learn from each other. The course has been constructed into an easy-to-follow, day-by-day curriculum.  She will share the knowledge she has gained through her years of hands-on experience and countless hours of research and study.
