What is the home raised difference?
What goes into creating an exceptional
puppy? It all starts long before conception by ensuring that you are pairing the right dogs who are mentally and physically healthy, who have great life skills, and are structurally compatible. These parent dogs need to have proper nutrition and socialization, as well as Health and Genetic Testing. Mom needs to be supported physically and emotionally through the entire gestational process to maximize the potential her offspring have.
How long does a dog's pregnancy last? Gestation lasts for approximately 63 days and each segment has its own required input for puppies to thrive. After they are whelped safely, the first experiences of a puppy’s life can have an enormous impact on the future. Starting at day 3, puppies should be exposed to mild stressors that will help the endocrine systems to develop a robust and solid foundation (Early Neurological Stimulation). Sensory input is just as important: daily handling, stroking, and cuddling, as well as grooming by mom, help the puppies to know how to interact with the world around them. Having an amazing foundation is incredibly important and its focus cannot be neglected.
How does a Doodle or Poodle best learn to live in someone's home? Being a house dog really requires being raised in a home with the entire family. Exposure to all the smells, sights, and sounds of a busy household will prepare growing puppies to thrive in a world full of noise and change. With 5 children and 6 grandchildren, there is never a lack of noise and novelty here!
How is Doodle Belle Puppy preparing our puppies to come to your family? Every single one of our Breeding Dogs lives in a their own home and is a cherished member of a local family. They are all indoor dogs who fully participate in the lives of their families. Daily interaction, love, and care are the perfect recipe for a Forever Puppy. No one lives in a kennel or is treated as a number. Here at Doodle Belle Puppy, we are immensely proud of that distinction.
You will see in the pictures on this page that we have had remarkable success with these litters we have raised. The Bernedoodle and Labradoodle puppies pictured here are just shy of 8 weeks old in these sitting photographs. This is an indicator of how much we do for these babies. Giving them a great start with house manners to go home with.
Dr. Norman, the Vet at our clinic, was doing an 8-week Wellness Check and most of the puppies were sitting and watching him. He was extremely impressed, and his comment was "I hope these families know how much you do for them!" More than once we have been told that people feel like they have won the puppy lottery. Perfect puppies are our passion. One step at a time.
