We have been asked by puppy buyers how we raise our puppies, where they are housed in our home. We felt these were important and necessary questions that we should answer for everyone and be able to show a pictorial of our puppies first few weeks with us.  Pictured here is our Puppy Room. Here we have crates for our house dogs for when we are away or at night and an area for new mom's with babies....also pictured is our puppy pens where, puppies are raised until they graduate to outdoor potty breaks and play time....or find new homes.....These pens are raised and  polly coated with an open top for easy "puppy pick up"! They have a solid cleanable bottom lined with newspapers which then has additional shredded white paper on top to help the puppies stay clean at all times.....these of course are changed daily. Puppies are allowed to run through the house several times a day as well to promote socialization with kids, older dogs, and to learn to investigate everything.......toys are always scattered across the floor and puppies are constantly on laps.  Here is also where we do our grooming and table training. A full bath is also attached to this room, this is very convenient for keeping the puppies and their environment clean and well kept. All the puppies are fixed special moist meals when young and then graduate to hard puppy food at about 6 weeks. We are very concerned that they have the correct, happy and well kept upbringing that will make them wonderful members of a new family or possible show dogs. All puppies are raised the same and given lots of kisses...with a large family it is hard not to have someone always walking in to play with them. Our puppy room is also central in our home.......it is the downstairs converted master bedroom and attached to our main hall and living area. Space is not an issue....measuring 13 by 16 feet with a walk in closet for food and other supplies, the puppies have plenty of room. We take great pride in our babies.
