Frequently asked questions
What type(s) of training do you do prior to puppies leaving your home?
Puppies are started on ENS (Early Neurological Stimulation) and have been started on crate training and potty training, focusing on going potty outside rather than on potty pads as I believe that they do better when introduced to the natural preferred setting for going potty.
What type of environment are puppies raised in?
Puppies are raised in my main living area where I spend the majority of my time. They are handled, cuddled, petted and talked to throughout the day. My other dogs are also in the home and the puppies are familiar and raised around a loving family.
How are your puppies socialized?
Puppies are raised around my other dogs from birth inside of the living area of my home. They are cuddled, held and interacted with throughout the day and interact with family and friends that visit my home, including my grandchildren who are trained from the earliest age how to handle small and large animals appropriately and kindly.
What types of medical appointments do your puppies routinely undergo?
At approximately 3 days of age, puppies have their first veterinary examination including having dew claws removed, weights taken, tails docked (Yorkshire Terriers only) and a newborn health examination.
