This is a litter that we've chosen to repeat for a variety of reasons. Past puppies have gone on to prove themselves as amazing family dogs, quick learners, spectacular hunting companions.. even detection dogs. 7+ are currently in training for detection work at the moment. We believe these puppies fit the bill for every kind of family. They have been nothing but happy, healthy and smart pups!
Your puppy will have its dewclaws removed, first shots done and dewormed at 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8 weeks (if still with us). Your puppy also comes with a 26month health/hip/eye guarantee. As the puppies' mobility improves, we take them on walks, to various lakes and rivers and to many different fields. We also start them on duck and pheasant scent at around 4 weeks. Real pheasants are used to train with, not just the scent. The last thing you want is a dog that is dominant or insecure. Puppies that tend to be dominant or insecure don't like lying on their backs. So, after the puppies' eyes are opened, we hold each one of them every day. And for a portion of that time while holding them, we cradle them on their backs in our arms like a baby. By instinct, dogs feel threatened by eye-to-eye contact. So, we also hold them up to our face and look them straight in the eyes. In addition to these above exercises, your puppy will be put on the Super Dog Program. :) Also known as Early Neurological Stimulation. You can read more about that here..
