I don't believe in churning out sub quality pups just to meet a demand for puppies. Each litter is a huge commitment, and has to be given careful consideration. The pros and cons of each parent are assessed. No dog is perfect. Pedigrees must be studied, dogs must be evaluated. You breed what you think is the best to the best, and then hope for the best!

There is no better stimulation for a puppy than the feel of dirt under their feet, grass tickling their belly, sounds of birds overhead, children playing, cars on the street and new smells. The puppies ideal natural playground is composed of tree roots and branches. Watching a 6 week old puppy boldly follow his mother into the water for his first swim is awe inspiring . Ahhh, the joys of a summer litter. But not all litters are summer litters. Thus is the challenge a breeder faces with a winter litter.

play Socialization and early stimulation begin at birth. I start working with the pups when they are 3 days old. I take each one and put it through a series of five exercises known as the Bio-Sensor method. In brief, this is a series of exercises that stimulates pups in a way they would not otherwise experience at this early age.

Once the pups open their eyes the fun begins! New stimulating toys are added. Paying attention to sound, texture, vibration, reflection and even scent. Long before companies started manufacturing puppy Adventure Boxes, I had created a puppy play room. It changes year to year with addition of new stimulating toys.

I also try to follow the Rule of Sevens:

By the time a puppy is 7 weeks old it should have:
Been on 7 different surfaces. Played with 7 different types of objects. Been in 7 different locations. Been exposed to 7 challenges. Eaten from 7 different containers. Eaten in 7 different locations. Met and played with 7 new people.

play2 The puppy playroom meets three of those right off the bat. You do not need to spend a lot of money to create new and interesting things to stimulate your litter. I have mirrors on the walls. It is fun to watch the puppies finally discover the puppy in the glass. Toys overhead are a must. I hang water bottles with kibble in them for toys that rattle. Soft squeaky toys, hard rubber toys. Even common objects like a spatula, plastic cup or bristle brush. I change the location of the hanging mobile every few days, or swap it out for another set of toys. Some of the hanging toys have a line of sleigh bells hooked on them. I just need to remember to take these out before we go to bed, or someone always finds them about 3am and shakes them wildly!

The play room has a number of ramps. Just high enough to provide an incline. Tunnels made out of round garbage cans with the bottoms cut out. Often I will find the swing jam-packed with pups sleeping and gently rocking! I also have low, padded and carpeted seesaws. The pups first reaction to these is usually to be startled when they walk up the low ramp and it moves under their weight. however, the puppy urge for exploration gets the best of them and soon you see 6-week old pups trying out their "sea legs" and balancing on the middle of the sea saw like expert agility dogs. My latest addition was a child’s sit-and-spin toy.

play3 At about 6 weeks, the pups are introduced to water, under supervision. I take an extra large Vari-Kennel bottom, line it with rubber bath mats, and fill it with three inches of warm water. I place this in the puppy room, with a couple of rubber balls floating in it. The boldest pups are soon in there! There is no pushing or forcing; I just let them go at their own pace. Each puppy also gets individual attention every day during which they experience a variety of activities. They may drag around a short leash, be introduced to wings and birds, go for a ride in the car, or have their toenails trimmed.

The playroom setup enables me to sit and watch the puppies for hours to see which are the most adventuresome which have the quickest recovery time, and which are more hesitant. This helps me decide on the homes that will be best for each one.

Having a litter of puppies is a labor of love. But it is also a full time job if done right. Having a winter litter is a full time job with lot of overtime!
