General Puppy Rearing Process *

About a week after birth, pictures will be posted to our Instagram or Facebook Page and exact dates to the respective litter page.  


Pre-birth

Moms are brought inside the nursery

Moms are separated from the pack starting at their 4th week pregnant and receive additional protein and vitamins. Inside our large home, we maintain a heated/air-conditioned 14' x 20' nursery.  The nursery is where the pups will spend their first 4 weeks of life.  The expecting moms are free to go inside and outside as they please.  Moms will typically start to nest around 6 weeks and will eventually whelp their pups on the 60th day of gestation in their own private 4' x 8' whelping box designed with the pup's safety in mind.  Pups will spend the first 4 weeks of their life primarily in this whelping box.  Bedding is changed daily so your pup gets accustomed to keeping a clean environment from day 1.  When the pups are born, we'll announce it within a day of their birth. We post photo & video updates once a week. ​


Newborn - 2 weeks

Dew Claw Removal 

About a week after birth, we'll post pictures to Instagram or Facebook page and update the Important Dates link that you'll want to mark your calendar for.  Pups are born deaf and blind. Pup's dewclaws are removed at 3 days old. Right around 2 weeks old, the pups will start to open their eyes.  Pups are well socialized from birth with our family handling them several times throughout the day.

3 Weeks

At 3 weeks the pups can fully see, hear, begin to interact with each other, and start to develop their personalities.  The pup's teeth noticeably start to erupt in the backs of their mouths.  

4 weeks

Moms begin to naturally ween their pups


Starting around 4 weeks moms will naturally start to wean their pups by walking away when they try to suck. Pups will start to get teeth in the fronts of their mouth.  They will look to chew on my hands, shoes, pants, showing me that they are teething. I'll introduce chew toys to alleviate their desire to chew.   Depending on the litter and their development, we will either begin to supplement the pup's food with formula or introduce Super Premium Puppy Food.  At this stage, the pups begin to interact a lot more with each other.    


Pups receive Parvo & Distemper Vaccinations.


5 weeks

By 5 weeks, the pups really start to wake up, move around, and play with each other throughout the day.  The pups will spend most of their day playing, napping, learning who is the strongest and weakest in the pack.

Pups receive 2nd rounds of Parvo & Distemper Vaccinations.


Usually litters graduate to our puppy grad space at around 5-7 weeks in age.


6 weeks

Pups are naturally and usually completely weened by now

By 6 weeks pups are virtually weened.  During the day, the moms won’t allow their pups to suck anymore. Moms will walk away and sometimes even growl at their pups to discourage them.  By 6 weeks mom's milk production will have dropped dramatically.  Although most litters are entirely naturally weened by now, the mom has complete access to her pups until the time they go home and can feel free to feed/teach them as she pleases. 


Pups receive a 3rd round of Parvo & Distemper Vaccinations.

​7 weeks

Puppy Temperament & Aptitude Testing!  

Scientists confirm that puppies have the same aptitude and brains as a full-grown adult by 7 weeks. Dog experts pinpoint that day 49 is the most accurate day to test them. We employ an assessment test to determine the puppy's aptitudes and temperaments around day 49 so we can be sure to help place our puppies in the right homes.  This is especially useful for 1st-time dog owners, those looking for therapy or service dogs.  Ultimately it's up to you which pup you select based on your pick, however, many people find these tests to be very helpful in their selection, especially for service & therapy dogs and people with small children.  As soon as the tests are done, I'll post their test scores with interpretation so you can have a better understanding of which puppy you might want as a housemate and companion.  Please read our Visitation Policy, Liability Release, & Indemnification Agreement before coming to select your pup.


Puppy Selection & Take Home!  

Approximately the first Saturday closest to their 49th day of life, ALL depositors will be invited based on their pick # to come out, play with the pups and make their selection. 


If you need your pup to stay longer to accommodate your schedule, we charge $35/day for late/delayed pick up not to exceed 7 nights.


$1000 Refundable Spay Neuter Deposit is Due

Your balance is due by the end of your time slot on selection day.  Balance due = Breeding service fee - deposits + optional upgrades + $1,000 Refundable Spay/Neuter Deposit.
