Puppies at new homes and getting new names

Well, another beautiful girl puppy who we called Muffin was delivered to her new family in CT this weekend.  Each puppy is harder and harder to part with as they will always have a place in our hearts and we will miss their many kisses.  Photos are pouring in as well as stories about how all the puppies are adjusting nicely to their new homes and new families.  One of our girls is loved by a professional phptographer in California and she took an absolutely beautiful photo of her for her website :

The three boys that are here are amazing.  We love our big boys, Mickie,Sr. and Marty, and even though we have two of each sex we feel the boys are our gender of choice when it comes to personality and bonding.  The girls are much like cats but the boys are always like a puppy and attached to the hip.  Loyal and attentive beyond belief.  We know that the boy puppies will be so amazing as poodles always are when raised with love.  We are going to continue all the training of these boys until they find their special families that will love them forever.  We can't wait to see who those lucky families will be, especially the family that will get Mickie, Jr. as a show and breeding prospect.  He's got that special movement that wows the judges in the show ring and he also absolutely loves water so AKC water and retrieving will also be a great competition sport for him.

Munchkin, is the sweetest and kindest of the bunch and he can play and keep up with the best of them.  He also loves the water and has no problem sticking his nose into the water to retrieve his toys.  He's is very intelligent and agile and should take to agility like a champ.

MP has always been one of my favorites from day one because he is just a a big cuddle bug.  When he sits in my lap he just relaxes and loves to be petted and get belly rubs.  He's the cutest little guy and has the intelligence of a small child.  He also is very agile and has no problem knowing where his feet are and tackling any new toy or agility-type game I introduce.  He also loves the water and plays with the pool and hose spray.  His real forte will be loving a family and if you want to compete, he'd be a great prospect for rally.

They are all so special and as their personalities get more pronounced everyday it will be so easy to match them to the right families. They are ready and waiting and we are making sure each day with us is special and only making them better and better for their new family.

 We do not use a name for our training because it is a program developed from years of dog ownership and training.  We live with our puppies 24-7 and they interact with us like family pets, As a result they are handled, trained, and cuddled throughout the day.  We believe in healthy sunlight so our puppies do get a few hours of outside play a day when old enough to absorb that precious vitamin D and work their little bodies into healthy, happy athletes. 

We introduce them to various people, including children, household noises and activities like vacuum cleaners, TVs, cooking, and adult dogs.  They always have toys and stimulating features in their indoor play area and we do larger play features like steps, 'dens/caves', water pool, hanging mobiles, balls, and lots of toys in their outside area. 

Puppies are evaluated at the time of birth for conformation and at 8-weeks for structure and temperament to determine the best future home and expectations for each puppy.  We reserve the right to pick of the litter for both sexes so commitment of puppies to their new owners will not happen until the 8-week evaluation based on Pat Hasting's protocol is completed. 

Puppies are vaccinated using the guidelines recommended by Dr. Jean Dobbs.  When the puppies are young we wash and dry once per week and start grooming for clean faces and feet at 4 weeks old.  Whenever we are cuddling with our puppies we massage their feet, play with opening their mouths, and prepare them for vet visits and handling.  Our puppies stay with us for at least 10 weeks and from 6-10 weeks we do crate training which give the puppies their own place to call home and rest.  This also helps the puppy learn potty training.  We will try to honor requests  for starting specific training during the last 2 weeks the puppy is with us and we know which puppy will become part of your family.

To give the puppy the best chance of being a valuable and loved member of your family our contract requires that our puppy owners enroll their puppy in an obedience class and complete the class course before 8 months.  Owners are also to continue the Jean Dobb's vaccination protocol and take their puppy to a Veterinarian within three business days after they pick up their puppy from us. Every puppy goes home with an thick educational folder, a toy and towel scented with the littermates and dame, a 4-day supply of their food, collar and leash, and their vaccination and vet record.  We are always available for any questions you may have but remember, we are not a vet, so call your vet first with any health concerns.  

We guarantee the puppy from genetic health issues per OFA's guidelines for 1 year from birth.  We reserve the right at all times and under all circumstances to choose to either refund 1/2 the treatment costs (minus insurance reimbursement) not to exceed the purchase price of the puppy or provide you with a replacement puppy if the puppy is returned to us.  That will be the guidelines and extent of our liability for any issues attributable to genetics health.  When the puppy leaves us it will have 30-days of health insurance coverage and we require that you continue to maintain that insurance to cover the diagnostic and treatment costs for your puppy whether due to genetic health issues or other issues or our genetic health guarantee is nullified and you will have no recourse. All my dogs are insured.

We will always be available to provide a home for your puppy if you cannot keep it.  Our protocol is strict for rehoming so you can rely on us.
