How We Raise Our Puppies
Here at Lifestyle we don't believe in breeding sub quality pups just to meet a demand for puppies. Each litter is a huge commitment and has to be given careful consideration. The parents and pedigrees are carefully studied in hopes that the puppies resulting from this breeding will be what we hoped for.
We raise our puppies in our home in "The Puppy Room". Each pup gets so much "tender loving care" and individual attention from us until they are ready to "head off to their new life."
At Lifestyle, we have adopted the Bio Sensor method to start our new pups off in life. The "Bio Sensor" program was also concerned with early neurological stimulation in order to give the dog a superior advantage. Its development utilized six exercises, which were designed to stimulate the neurological system. Each workout involved handling puppies once each day. The workouts required handling them one at a time while performing a series of five exercises. You can read more about the
They are all given different colored collars when they are born in order to keep track of their weight and early neurological stimulation exercises. Later these are replace with a heavier nylon collar. They get to drag around leashes to get used to the slight pull.
Pups experience things like first bath.and Nail clipping. Ear cleaning and Clipping their Face Feet and Tails. They are placed on the grooming table at 3 weeks to get used to it. Then I place the clippers while running, on their face to get them used to the vibrations. At 4 weeks I shave their faces and tails.
The pups are introduced to crates at an early age by keeping an open crate in the puppy room. Small food dishes are put in the crates at times to form a pleasant impression. If I have puppies that are still here after 10 weeks or so, I start crate training.each one individually.
The pups are wormed with Pyrantel beginning at two weeks then every two weeks until 8 weeks. Parvo Virus immunization vaccines, NeoPar are given beginning at 5 weeks and is given again at 7 weeks. At 6 weeks they receive NeoVac, (DA2) and are routinely treated with Marquis at 7 weeks just as a precautionary measure against Coccidiosis. At eight weeks I take them to my Florida licensed veterinarian who then gives them a health and fecal check and issues them their Health Certificates.
Our puppies have a large play area which has lots of squeak and cuddly toys, balls, Kongs and other types of toys for them to play with. I also may have tunnels and boxes that have different textures for them to explore.
Once our puppies leave us they have had plenty of love, great care and socialization to get them off to a great start........now, it's time for their new families to continue where we left off!
