In association with the word kennel we often think of dogs kept in kennels outside the home atmosphere.We don`t consider that a good name for us because all the dogs are part of our household whether they are rescue dogs, here on holiday or puppies.

Our puppies are born in the livingroom or bedroom.The first few weeks I sleep in the same room with the pups. We do our best to get the pups familiar with everyday noises in the home. At 6 weeks of age the pups get their own collar and we walk them on a leash or at least try to get them used to this. Before they leave us, they are on solid food.No messy porridges to worry about.

Our pups have their wurm cures at 2-4-6 and 8 weeks. At the age of three weeks, they socialize with the older dogs. At 6 weeks they have their first puppy cocktail shot and at about 7 weeks, their eyes are tested for C.E.A.
At between 8-9 weeks if all health checks are cleared ,they go to their new owners.

As the breeder, I have the right to first choice of the litter Male or Female . we make a choice age 8-12 weeks

As to how the pups develop, often depends on the character of the pup and a large portion also lies in the hands of the new owner. Take the sheltie everywhere and let it get used to different situations. I often hear that shelties can be noisy.Don`t allow it.If you don`t want the dog on the couch later, don`t allow it as a pup.

Shelties are eager to learn but most certainly not always outgoing to everyone. Sorry, but I don`t like everyone either. A sheltie will come in it`s own time. The more pressure it`s under, the less it likes it. Because of their subtle characters, they are sensitive to an angry voice.Actually a raised voice isn`t necessary with a sheltie. Compare it to a child, they have to learn everything but with given time.

If your neighbour`s dog is housetrained after two weeks, that`s great for her but I`ve never managed it that quickly. It`s good to know that all dogs get housetrained eventually, some sooner than others.

If your dog has show potential, take it to a show or clubmatch.We love to help in that field too.

We have tips for ears if they decide to stand up and live a life of their own on our grooming pages.

We wish all our dogs the very best.,,,
