All The Puppies Are In their New Homes!

Posted on Mar 8, 2017 | 0 comments

Well, as usual, the past 12 weeks flew by!  It feels like just yesterday I was nuzzling warm, still wet newborn puppies.  Praying over them, in my cupped hands that had a couple of drops of  frankincense essential oil on them.  Imagining their future and looking forward to giving them enriched experiences as they grew. The last of the puppies went home yesterday – all the way to Canada in a carry on travel carrier with two very happy people! We don’t have any immediate plans of another breeding or litter for now but there is a possibility we will breed one more brown litter later...

The Last Two Weeks of the Critical Learning Period For Puppies   The puppies are just a couple of days shy of 9 weeks old and are leaving or being scheduled to leave with their new families. While it is a very bitter/sweet time for us, it is a time of great excitment and more new learning experiences for the puppies and their new families. The new families are going to have their puppies for the last two and half to three weeks of the  “CRITICAL LEARNING PERIOD” (the critical development/learning period for puppies is from 3 weeks to 12 weeks of age).

Today was a big day for the puppies!  Turning 7 weeks old means going through the testing exercises and matching up our observances of the puppies with test results to help determine which puppies will be the best fit for each family. We use the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Test. I look at these testing exercises more in a general way then as someting set in stone.  After all, they don’t predict the very individual aspects of a dog. I always think of temperament and aptitude tests as a snap shot in time. They are observations of behavior of that exact moment.  They do give a broad idea of a...

This is the first Winter litter that we have had in over 10 years and normally we get lots of pictures of the puppies when they are outside in the sunshine. It is too cold and wet out to have the puppies outside for more than a couple of minutes so we are not getting as many pictures as normal. We have a full spectrum light panel that we use daily and direct towards their pen and I will hold them individually and take them out to be in the sun when we have any without blustery winds blowing too. I got all of their faces shaved yesterday and finally got pictures of them to share with you....
