Great genetics is only the beginning of creating great, well-balanced dogs. We also take extra care in the way our puppies are born and raised. All of our puppies are born inside the house surrounded by family. They are exposed to all the things that happen in a household: kids, radio, television, vacuum cleaners, visitors, etc. We strongly emphasize constant contact with people, children, and other animals starting at birth. This is a critical time for their socialization. When older, puppies move out into temperature-controlled “puppy palace” and have their own playground and a daily visit to our agility area. They will interact daily with all of our ranch animals, the rest of our white pack, and all other visitors coming to our ranch. They will be exposed to different surfaces frequently, which is crucial for their sensory development. Our Puppy Academy trainees will have additional socialization and full-time puppy starter training.
Our process is more expensive than most breeders, but I believe our approach and passion about the breed produces some of the most beautiful, healthy, and well balanced BBS dogs in the world. All of our puppies will be under the care of our close family friend veterinarian who makes sure that the puppies are well and up to date with all their medical needs. Puppies will be de-wormed and vaccinated on the recommended schedule and will be micro-chipped before they go to their new homes.
Our dogs are fed a combination of the highest quality dog food on the market and a variety of raw meat and bones. This includes freshly laid raw organic eggs. There will be weekly updates and postings of puppy pictures for families to view their puppy’s development in progress. At 7 weeks of age, all puppies will be temperament tested by me and assigned to the best-matched family’s needs based on their energy level, lifestyle, and purpose for the new family member. Therefore, filling out our puppy application is very important to assure the best match of a puppy to a family. Puppies go home to their families at 8 weeks of age unless they are part of our Puppy Academy.
