What is a Breeder?

A Breeder (with a capital B) is one who thirsts for knowledge and never really knows it all, one who wrestles with decisions of conscience, convenience, and commitment. A Breeder is one who sacrifices personal interests, finances, time, friendships, fancy furniture, and deep pile carpeting! She gives up the dreams of a long, luxurious cruise in favor of turning that all-important show into this years "vacation." A Breeder goes without sleep (but never without coffee!) in hours spent planning a breeding or watching anxiously over the birth process, and afterwards, over every little sneeze, wiggle or cry. A Breeder skips dinner parties because that litter is due or the babies have to be fed at seven. She disregards birth fluids and puts mouth to mouth to save a gasping newborn, literally blowing life into a tiny, helpless creature that may be the culmination of a lifetime of dreams. A Breeder's lap is a marvelous place where generations of beautiful puppies once snoozed. A Breeder's hands are strong and firm and often soiled, but ever so gentle and sensitive to the thrusts of a puppy's wet nose. A Breeder's back and knees are usually arthritic from stooping, bending, and sitting in the birthing box. A Breeder's shoulders are stooped and often heaped with abuse from competitors, but they're wide enough to support the weight of a thousand defeats and frustrations. A Breeder's arms are always able to wield a mop, support an armful of puppies, or lend a helping hand to a newcomer. A Breeder's ears are wondrous things, sometimes red (from being talked about) or strangely shaped (from being pressed against a phone receiver), often deaf to criticism, yet always fine-tuned to the whimper of a sick puppy. A Breeder's eyes are blurred from pedigree research and sometimes blind to her own dog's faults, but they are ever so keen to the competitions faults and are always searching for the perfect specimen. A Breeder's brain is foggy on faces, but it can recall pedigrees faster than an IBM computer. It's so full of knowledge that sometimes it blows a fuse: it catalogues thousands of good boning's, fine ears, and perfect heads... and buries in the soul the failures and the ones that didn't turn out. A Breeder's heart is often broken, but it beats strongly with hope everlasting... and it's always in the right place! Oh, yes, there are breeders, and then, there are Breeders.

Male VS Female Dogs

From many years of having both male and female breeds, I have found that I personally favor the males over the females as far as temperament is concerned. They are much more family oriented and protective toward their family. The males are much sweeter and obeybetter. A male is much more lovable and willing to do anything to please you. They love yourapproval, generally seek out your affection. Most people do not want the males because they think all males will mark their territory by lifting the leg and peeing on everything in site. I have learned from my past clients who have adopted my pet puppies that if the males are neutered at an early age say 4 to 6 months, they do not mark there territory, having never gotten male hormones due to this early neutering. Malesare generally much cheaper than a female due to supply and demand. The price of a female is higher, because they are in higher demand. Females generally are much more stubborn. They are very independent and want everything theirown way. The females are always wanting to see what is on the other side of the fence. A male is satisfied that hehas a yard and a family to love. Females are higher strung and from time to time will fight with other dogs. They often hold grudges for days at a time when they have been corrected for doing something they think is wrong. If your female is not spayed then you also have a heat cycle every 6 to 8 months. This can also lead to unwanted puppies to care for and find homes for in thefuture.A friend once said the males are born to serve us, the females are born for you to service them.    Please consider a male as your next best friend

Housebreaking Tips for 12-15 Month Old Pups

 Many people think that they have to purchase in the summer so they can housebreak the pup before returning back toschool, this is not happening.  Why you might ask?  Simply because a puppy should not be taken outside until fully vaccinated at 12 to 15 weeks, and they are not mentally or physically ready to start as well.  A puppy is like a newborn human baby, you could stand over the toilet with the human baby all day and yes he would urinate and defecate in the toilet but he simply would not even know that he was doing it.  Just like human toddlers hit a stage where they start to notice the uncomfortable feeling in their diaper as they age, puppies start to realilize that they do not like the nasty in the back of the crate on the puppy pad.   Also when a pup hits 12 to 15 weeks, he starts to eat more at one time,his bladder is larger and can hold it longer, he knows what he is doing and is ready to start his outside training .  When the pup is old enoughtake him to the same place in the yard everytime.  Do not intermingle playtime with potty time or you will be standing out in the rain and cold while the pup wants to play.  We potty outside, and play in the house until fully housebroken at about 9 months of age.  Your pups living areashould be his large crate with his puppy pad in the back so if he has an accident he can relief himself on his pad until you return home. Put your pup out to potty and then give him a short playtime, anything over about 20 minuets you are at risk of an accident.  You may take your pup out several times during playtime to assure no accidents and to have a longer playtime. Baby should return to his crate while not playing.  Keep in mind your pup has his food , water bottle, and puppy pad all in the large crate.  your pup will get on a schedule with you, they have a built in self clock and will start to realize , Mom/Dad will be home at this time, and as the pup starts to grow , you will start to see less and less accidents in the crate.  As soon as you get up in the morning take the baby outside " Before the coffee" and again after a short playtime and breakfast , then back into the crate while you are at work.  You may leave the TV or a radio on for the pup while you are away. As soon as you return home, put the baby outside and let the playtime begin, he has waited for this moment all day and has a lot of love and kisses to give.  You might need some kisses too as it sure makes up for a bad day at work!!!!  Never spank you pup for an accident , blame yourself for not taking him out in time or leaving him out too long.  Reward the baby with treats when he does good and remember as each day passes you will start to notice a lot of progress. Remember, your pup should only use his little puppy pads until he is fully vaccinated and old enough to start outside!
