We want to provide families with well adjusted, healthy pups, so we have all our moms and dads tested for any genetic markers. They are all health screened and certified by Paw Print Genetics.
We provide a family home environment for all of our puppies and adult dogs. The pups start in the nursery and as they grow, they move to the family room so they can experience sights and sounds of a busy household. The next step is a little home for them in the kitchen. This also allows an easier transition for potty training, since our awesome dog yard is a few skips away.
From day 3-15, we use early neurological stimulation on our puppies, this helps them become well adjusted dogs. Socialization as well as exposure to household and everyday sounds are key while they are young. This includes playing sound effects like farm animals, stormy weather, and other interesting noises. All of our puppies absolutely love people because we interact with them daily and give them tons of love.
Before going home, all of our puppies get a full check up from our veterinarian. Going in a group makes their visit a positive experience.
When you bring your puppy home, we provide a 7 day supply of Blue Buffalo, Lamb & Oatmeal recipe. It's best to keep them on the same kibble for a few days. Our puppies do great on this kibble.You may decide to transition to another puppy food, and that's OK! There are a lot of healthy brands to go with.
The early imprintation period for a dog is from 3 - 16 weeks old. So when they go home, you still have 8 more weeks to show them what yours and pups life will look like on a day to day basis. Will you be boating in the future ? Take that pup boating. Will he be going to the groomers? Take that pup in to the groomers once or twice before 16 weeks old. It's important to expose them to as many positive experiences as we can. What about hikes/walks? We suggest a sling, stroller or a front/back pack for your new family member. You can go on walks with your bundle of joy safely until they are fully vaccinated. This way they can experience loud trucks going by, bicyclists, some one riding a skateboard and what not.
Here are two articles we recommend for socialization/training your new family member during the time of Covid:
Yes! Our two year health guarantee is:
We take every necessary step to ensure that pups are healthy when they leave to their new homes. Each puppy is vaccinated and dewormed on a schedule and examined by a veterinarian before we send them home. Our Moms & Dads are genetically tested to ensure healthy puppies as well. Therefore we offer a 2 year health guarantee for life threatening, congenital conditions.
We limit people visiting the property due to health/safety reasons for our puppies and dogs. Puppies are still developing their immune systems and are not yet fully protected. People can inadvertently carry diseases on their shoes, hands ,and clothing that could be detrimental for puppies.
On your pups Go Home Day, there is a strict protocol (sanitizing shoe trays, etc.) and we have a reception area set up in our training center for this purpose.
For the five week puppy pick, we use video conference call. The video visits have gone really well In the past and we’re able to give a tour of our home without putting stress on any nursing/pregnant mothers. When mothers get stressed, they produce cortisol and it’s passed to the babies and this is best avoided. Thanks for your understanding.
In 2017 our journey began when our mini Aussie Siggi, and miniature poodle, Mr. B had their first litter of Aussiedoodles. We kept one of their pups and added Niska and Little Girl to our program. In 2018 we also added Penny, a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel to our program so we could offer Cavadoodles.
We love being able to provide wonderful family dogs and when you mix the poodle to the Aussie or Cavalier we get the perfect Doodles.
