How we Raise and Train Our Puppies

Before leaving our home our puppies have two full veterinary health checks by our vet at Range Road Vet in Beaumont. At 6 weeks of age they receive a vaccine for Parvovirus. At 8 weeks of age they receive a DAPP (Distemper, Adenovirus 1&2, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus. If they remain in our care for training past 9 weeks old we administer their next DAPP vaccine at 12 weeks old and continue their regular deworming schedule.

Starting at 3 days old we complete Early Neurological Stimulation daily until they are 16 days old. Between 3-4 weeks of age we start the beginning stages of potty training by dividing the whelping box in to a sleeping/nest area and an area with a reuse-able puppy pad. We keep the sleeping area very clean to establish that they do not potty where they sleep and eat. Establishing this makes their future potty training process much easier. Once they are eliminating on one side of the pen and sleeping on the other we will expand their pen and slowly move the potty area away from their sleeping area. We then add large litter boxes with pine shavings to begin litter training and surrounding area with puppy pads and a grate to prevent the puppies from ripping the pads apart.

We reinforce calm behaviours throughout our puppies training by waiting until they are sitting calmly and waiting quietly before picking them, petting them, receiving treats, etc. They witness their litter mates getting what they want by sitting calmly and patiently and will copy their actions until all the puppies catch on. Everyone in our household knows to follow these rules throughout our puppies raising and the puppies catch on very quickly and continue offering this behaviour. 

We start socialization by exposing our puppies to a wide variety of people and animals of all ages and sizes. Different sizes and colors of dogs, different ages and sizes of people with a variety of features and clothing such as beards, hats, sunglass, hoods, etc. We take our puppies for their first car ride prior to their first vet check up so they do not associate car rides with getting vaccines. We do multiple car rides with each of them to help them become comfortable in the car and going to new places. This also helps to prevent them from getting car sick.

At 5-6 weeks old we add a large wire crate in to the puppy pen and move their bed in to this crate to start the beginning stages of crate training. As they get more comfortable being inside this crate we will switch to multiple smaller crates and continue adding more as they grow. Between 7-8 weeks old we do individual meal inside their crates with the door closed so they begin to get comfortable with the door shut. We slowly increase the time the door is closed for until naps and bedtime are done inside their crate. This sets a solid foundation for crate training and makes it easy to continue in your home. The crate helps is an important tool for potty training as it teaches your puppy hold to hold themselves until ti ius time to go outside. It is also extremely important to help keep your puppy safe from getting in to or ingesting things that are unsafe as well as chewing/destroying items when you are not able to watch them closely.

We send all our puppies home with a guide on how to continue this training, proper socialization, and potty training as well as their daily schedule to help you and your puppy with the transition to your home. Your are also provided with my phone number to call or text me for any support you may need throughout their lifetime.
