ALL HEALTH TESTING DONE ON PARENTS AND PUPS
We take great pride in any dogs we produce. We make sure that all dogs are fully health tested and compliment each others faults before deciding if we will have a litter.
We only breed if we are going to keep pups back for showing or working. And we are very selective about the placing of any pups we will not be holding on too.
We firstly encourage anyone on the waiting list to come and meet us and have a conversation about what it is you are looking for in a pup. What sort of lifestyle you lead and if you are looking for a male or female and then lastly if you have a preferred colour in mind. (we would only have standard colour pups)
We show potential new puppy owners the health test certificates for the parents and you can meet the parents if we are using our own stud. If we have chosen to use an outside stud, then we show you photos and where possible video footage of the sire.
We like to feel a connection with our puppy owners as we like to stay in touch after pups have left us.
All of our dogs live in the house with us as first and foremost, very much loved members of our family. Any pups we produce are self whelped in our home, and i am very much a part of their delivery into the world. We keep very detailed notes from labour all the way through, until they leave us between 8 and 10 weeks old.
The reason being is that we can see if any of the dogs are not gaining weight as quickly, if any are a little behind the others with regards to opening eyes, reacting to noise, feeding, and rate of development with learning.
All these notes are transferred into the puppy packs, each of you will get a copy of how your puppy has progressed and what ages they hit milestones. We also make a puppy photo album for each individual pup and a DVD of the beginning of their lives.
The first few months are without doubt the most amazing when it comes to development and growth, so we like you new puppy owners to feel that you have been a part of that with us.
Once you have been agreed as a puppy owner and passed a home check we encourage you to come over as often as possible to spend time with your new puppy. to get to know us more and to discuss any questions you may have. It also allows your pup to start to get to recognise you, it has worked very well so far and has reduced the stess and anxiety greatly when the pups leave us.
We take the pups and their mum to the vet once delivery has ended and all is settled. We like to check that mum is as ok as we feel she is and just check there are no problems with any pups that we don't see. Its all just for confirmation of what we see to be honest.
The pups will then go in a crate in the car to the vets every two weeks until they leave. The reason is firstly to allow them to experience the car, also to hear, see and smell new things. Also to get used to being gone over by a vet - new person, and for general check up, worming and flea treatment routine.
We do a lot of desensitisation with the puppies to try to help the pups leave as confident and well balanced mentally and socially as possible. In the whelping pen we have different textures for them to feel, we start playing different sounds to them from two weeks old... including fireworks, thunderstorms, trains, traffic, music, crowd noise and emergency service sirens.
We use multi colour fibre optic lights that change colour and we do normal household things like; tv, hoovering, tumble dryer, washing machine, sweeping and washing floors around them.
We encourage the pups when they are old enough to come out and explore their surroundings, they interact with the other dogs and my children handle the pups from 3 weeks old. When they get to 6 weeks old we start to have friends children over so the pups get used to the activity and noise that children can make. We allow the children to play with the pups supervised and we teach the pups to play with toys and start them off doing little puzzles.
We start to get each pup used to being in a crate on their own - incase they will be crated when they leave, we get them used to eating away from each other, we also start to teach them to go outside to the toilet. We get them used to the lead and collar - inside and in the garden, we also take them for 1;1 time to play and get individual attention to encourage confidence on their own as well as with their siblings.
Our goal for the puppies is to be as healthy, fit and confident as they can be by the time they leave us. It is very important to us to make sure we do our bit to make the pups as well rounded as possible, to start them off on the right foot and set them up for a life full of fun and mental stability.
If you would like any more information on how we raise our pups, or you would like to be put on our puppy waiting list, please feel free to contact us.
