Information on how our pups are raised:

Working from my home allows me to spend many hours with the new pups.   Pups are born and raised to four weeks of age in our spare bedroom giving mom a private room to settle in with her babies, pups are handled by us from day one.  Shortly after the fourth week we move them downstairs to the main floor of our home.   Here they are exposed to all the daily activities and sounds of a busy household, pots dropping, telephone ringing and visitors to the house.

Spending so much time with the little ones enables me to help new owners choose the perfect puppy for their home. 
If you are obtaining a puppy from a distance I pride myself
in my ability to match my pups to the appropriate family,
not all pups are for all people. 

Summer pups enjoy playtime outdoors in our secure enclosure, street traffic and a golf course across the road exposes them to different noises while feeling secure with their littermates, mom or an obliging auntie to keep a watchful eye out.

Pups are introduced to crates before they  leave our care.   We acclimatize pups to grooming equipment, collars, play tunnels, different environments, daily handling.

New owners find them intelligent, loving and always into something.
