Our approach to Breeding:
Breeding is our hobby. Our breeder dog and her litter have their place in our home and from the beginning take part in our daily life. During this phase our dining room is converted to a puppy room. This is adjacent to the patio door which leads directly to the garden area behind the house.
When the puppies are born all the activity is centered around the litter area. In the first four weeks there is much close contact between the people and the dog (family/pack ???).
We want to have an immediate influence on the puppies through contact, stimulation and their sense of smell and also let them get accustomed to the typical sounds of daily life.
The puppies receive a regular and measured allotment of sensual stimulation. Among these are various hard, soft and slippery floor surfaces, toys, audible and visual stimuli such as wood, grass, sand, gratings, tarps, tunnels, a small pool filled with plastic balls, a small pool filled with water, noisemakers from wood and cans, warning tape, things which move about, a teeter-totter, a balance board, as well as typical daily objects like an umbrella, a lawn mower etc., We also play a – CD with differing sounds including a siren, ringing bells and fireworks. Opportunity is also given for developing the predatory instinct by playing with the rest of the litter, the mother and people.
Parties interested in a puppy are welcome after the fourth week. The puppies should have contact with people of all ages: babies, children, teens, adults and seniors. We want to provide an optimal start in to life for the puppies.
When an interested party decides to take a puppy home, they are given a detailed feeding plan as well as a folder containing information which can be helpful for living together with a dog. Afterwards, in the initial phase and preferably for the dogs entire life, we are, of course, available for any questions that may come up or simply just to chat.
For our other dog Ringo (male) we also have a good idea of what kind of dog (female) we would like to see with him. She should be mentally grown up, that means at least two years old and should have had no litter within the last fifteen months. Since our female dog will only be covered a maximum of three times, we would wish the same for Ringo's “Bride.”
We are a simple family and feel the dog (female) should live with her family in the house (no kennel or pen). If these conditions are agreeable to you and you are looking for a stud dog, you are more than welcome to contact us.
