We take raising our puppies very seriously. We just completed our current litter on Pre-Potty Training (started at day 22). By day 32 they were 100% on keeping their sleeping area clean. This begins while they are still in the whelping box (pictured below). This is not full potty training, but it does help speed up the process when your puppy arrives at their new home. As part of our puppy program, all of our puppies are handled everyday (after the 1st week). We start teaching them their names (if that has been decided), "come," "no," "hush," and "go potty." They are introduced to sleeping in a crate, and walking on a leash. We also pre-screen our puppies for hunting instinct, conformation, and cuddliness, so that we can place the right dogs with hunters, showfolk, families, etc. ~ Our Final Litter Of 2014, Fabrizia/Flash Puppies, Due Approx. May 1st ~
All of our dogs have been Cerebellar Ataxia (CA) tested and are "CA Clear." This is a rare genetic disease that kills puppies at a young age. Bloodlines that are "CA Clear" NEVER need to worry about this disease.
