Just Completed a couple In/Out Runs
Neighbors think we have Kids, no we have DOGS..
2015 Project :  With this S. TX heat & humidity, decided my fur babies really need a
Climate Controlled
K9 Kastle where they could go in & out at their leisure.  Just a  little
more to do and this job will be complete.
Thank you for viewing my website.  I hope that you enjoy looking through my dogs
and find the content within the site informative.  Buying a puppy is a big commitment,
and although this breed is awesome, they are not for everyone.  With that said,
when you contact me about a puppy, please give me a little information about
yourself, and your expectations in a puppy.  Please do not be offended if I follow up
with more questions as I look for those wonderful forever homes for my pups.
That is my responsibility as a breeder.
Most puppies leave here on a spay / neuter contract.

How We Raise Our Puppies

We carefully plan our litters and do not breed our adults until they have had thier
health clearances done.  We strive to deliver healthy, happy puppies that will make
our future families wonderful companions.
Our puppies are born right here in the house with us where they can be monitored
and handled daily.  For the first 16 days of thier life we utilize the "Super Dog"
protocol which is a series of steps that provide early neurological stimulation that is
known to have lasting effects on the puppies.  (www.breedingbetterdogs.com)

As soon as the puppies begin to pull themselves around we try start giving them a
daily challenge even as simple as some may be.  This starts even before the eyes or
ears have opened and continues through the 8 weeks they are here.  They learn to
handle stress and helps to build confidence later on.

Starting at 2 weeks of age the puppies are wormed and have follow up wormings
every other week after that.  

As eyes are opened, toys of all colors, shapes, and sizes are added to their pen.
As ears open they are exposed to various sounds from a CD called "Puppy Sounds"
by Dean Lake.  This CD has noises from trains, planes, autos, barking dogs,
daycare, geese, you name it and it is probably on there.  In addition to that they hear
all the household noises while they enjoy time in the middle of our living room.

As they are up and moving around we start litter box training..."Its not just for cats
anymore".  They are provided with a sleep area, play area, and elimination area and
you would be surprised how well "most" of them do.  We do not guarantee puppies to
be 100% litterbox trained, but their effort is greatly appreciated.

As mom begins to have enough of her little sharp teeth devils, we start feeding the
pups a mush made of quality kibble dog food (no can food) several times a day.  
This is a time that we are really glad they know a little about the litter box :).

At about 4 weeks provided the weather/temperature cooperates the pups start
having some outside playtime where they experience even more sights and sounds.
Eventually they will meet other members of our pack supervised and through a fence
for the most part.

We typically keep our pups inside our home the full 8 weeks, but there are occasions
that we have unusually large litters where it becomes impossible.  At these times
about 6.5 - 7 weeks they are moved to a puppy play & housing area.  They have a
large covered pen to play in then they can use a doggie door to go inside where
there is heat / air conditioning.
They still have daily interaction with our family !
You will
never find a litter locked away in a horse stall inside a barn.

During this time we also like to take the puppies for short car rides.

As thier 8 week departure time comes near we start to seperate the pups from each
other a few hours a day into individual crates.  Seems this helps them transition into
thier new home easier and no we cannot guarantee a quiet puppy the first few nights
away from mom, littermates, and the only surroundings it has known.
We do provide you some tips that have worked pretty well for us.

My new puppy families will receive a puppy packet that includes health record,
pedigree, registration application if applicable, copy of the contract, training tips and
other information as well as a picture CD of thier puppy since Day 1.
Most importantly my contact info should you have any questions regarding your new
family member.

I take pride in our puppies, they are a direct reflection on me as a breeder.  Should
you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
