Our puppies are born in the house and live inside with us until at least 4 weeks of age under constant supervision. They are handled by the family only up to 4 weeks. We start to groom them and get them used to being handled and touched everywhere including ears and mouths.
From four weeks they are introduced to other dogs, cats, horses and a never ending list of volunteer humans of all shapes, sizes and ethnicity.
They also move into the kennels around 4 weeks old so that they start to get used to other stimuli outside of the home environment, although they still join us inside for a few hours every day for a bit of human playtime.
They are raised on a natural diet which enables them to grow at an even rate which reduces the risk of joint & health problems in the future. They also have the pleasures of pigs ears, hide chews, filled & empty hooves & tripe sticks all of which they love but also teaches them to share & give to humans when asked.
By the time they leave us they are used to most animals, children, adults, all manner of handling and noises including washing machine, vacume & every day household hustle & bustle.
Their new owner leaves with a well adjusted, healthy bundle of fur.
They all have a parvo-virus inoculation, we no longer have the full first vaccination as so many vets use different types of vaccinations so some puppies have to start again which leads to over vaccination which is obviously not good for any puppy.
All puppies leave here micro chipped & are fully health checked by our vet.
