Raising puppies and the allocation process
We will be informing you of all the exciting events of your precious puppy. The honeymoon, the ultrasound to confirm pregnancy, (which is 25 to 30 days after the honeymoon) the birth, weekly picture updates, progress of the puppies, visits and go home dates.
We socialize our puppies very well and show them lots of love and teach them respect.
Your puppy will be almost completely potty trained at 8 weeks by the way we stage them in their development. It will be your job to show them where to go out once you get them home and continue to reinforce that. We walk each puppy on a leash so they are familiar with it. We also introduce them to the crate. There may be a little separation anxiety the first few nights away from their siblings, but placing the crate next to your bed or letting the puppy spend time in the crate during the day during nap time can improve the night time drama.
As far as the selection process goes, we allocate our puppies to their families according to your adoption form. Everyone wants something different, like sex, size, color, coat type and personality. Of course if you are one of the first few people on the wait list and you wanted a male, then we would be sure that you got a male as long as there were enough males born and the personality fits. It is always good to be a little flexible. Personality of the puppy plays a big part and is of the highest priority of the allocation process. Every family has a different situation. A family with young children or an older retired couple would have different needs. Also some people want their puppy to do therapy work. Some families have allergies. We take all these situations into account when choosing your puppy. We know our puppies very well as we spend a great deal of time with each and every one of them. We do an excellent job in selecting the right puppy for every family.
We believe every puppy is special and your family deserves the best.
