Additional Information:

The puppies and their mother are taken to our veterinarian for an examination to make sure all are doing well.  At this time, the puppies' dewclaws are removed and tails are docked.  A couple days after the vet visit, we begin Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) on the puppies following the Puppy Culture methods and continue through the remaining weeks introducing socialization and enrichment activities that includes exposing them to many sights, sounds, and environments.  

Our litter box and play pen are kept immaculately clean which makes potty training much easier.  Here are a few of the extra things that we work on with the puppies:  wearing a collar, riding in a car, introducing them to a crate, becoming familiar with household noises, rebounding from startling noises, socializing with other animals and strangers, experiencing grooming and bathing, being exposed to children, and much more!

After weaning, the puppies are placed full time on a nutritious diet with scheduled feedings that makes potty training a lot easier.  We like to ensure that each puppy is getting his share and also want to maintain healthy weights.  We begin with 4 feedings and at 8 weeks, they are fed 3 meals.  They are administered wormers at 3 and 6 weeks of age.  At 8 weeks old, they are started on Interceptor Plus, a heart worm preventative that includes parasite control.  The puppies receive their first puppy shot at 7 weeks of age.  Puppies are taken to our veterinarian for a final examination just a few days before going to their new families to ensure that they are in excellent health.

We prepay our puppies' AKC registration and also microchip our puppies with prepaid lifetime enrollment with AKC Reunite.  This is our gift to families to make sure their puppies have the best possible chance of being reunited with their families in case they ever become lost.

If your puppy is being delivered to you by airfare, the puppy will receive a health clearance for transport just a few days prior to departure.  We will not fly a puppy until ten weeks of age.  All other puppies being picked up or delivered to their new homes will be allowed to join their new families at nine weeks of age.  We are strong believers in the Puppy Culture methods and at 3, 5 and 8 weeks of age, puppies go through a natural fear response.  For this reason, we wait until this phase passes before the puppies are transitioned to their new homes.
