PUP DATE!!

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

 

 

 

 

 

Good Evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! 

This is our One Week Pup Date for Clover's Surprise Parti Litter. You can expect your next Pup Date when the puppies are two weeks old and then moving forward from there, every two weeks we will send out Surprise Pari Pup Dates.  With pictures and some videos to show your puppies' progress.  Follow us on Facebook or Instagram where you will find that we will randomly post pictures of our dogs and puppies alike.

For last month's Pup Date we provided you with information around Puppy Socialization and Training. This month's Pup Date we will provide you a list of  "Our Favourite Supplies as well as information on one of our favorite local trainers and access to free online "Training Books."

For this Pupdate, we thought you may want to source out some puppy essentials in preparation for when you bring your new fur baby home.  We hope you find the following list helpful!

 

 

In order to be prepared for your puppy, we have compiled a list of supplies you may find helpful!

 

⦁    Feeding Bowls
⦁    Flat cloth buckle or snap collar
⦁    Lightweight six-foot cloth leash
⦁    ID Tag
⦁    Front Lead Harness (Leash should be able to clip on a loop at the front of the harness positioned by the dog's chest) It will be less likely the dog will pull. Harnesses with the loop on the back cause the dog to instinctively want to pull.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    Treat Pouch For Training 
⦁    Good quality chews toys and lots of them, the puppy is teething and likes to play! Encouraging your puppy to chew the toy rather than your finger will teach him appropriate ways to live in our human world.
⦁    Balls, tug toys, deer antler, bison horns, bully sticks are a terrific option for teething puppies.
⦁    Rubber Kong Pink or Baby Blue Colour to start. (This will help with teething and expending energy through mental stimulation. 


 

⦁    Crates and Gates
You will need a place to put your puppy when you can’t supervise him. Crates are ideal and they have the added benefit of creating a safe place or den for your puppy.  When selecting a crate you will have a variety of options I personally prefer the smaller plastic crate for my young puppies, and move them to wire crates once they outgrow the smaller one. You could consider purchasing one that will be large enough to accommodate your dog when he is fully grown.
A dog should be able to stand up, turn around and stretch out completely without hitting the crate walls.  Most crate companies offer dividers so that the crate can be made larger or smaller. If you will be purchasing a crate large enough to fit your puppy from puppyhood till full-grown the divider option will work best. While your puppy is small and you are potty training you will want the crate to be just big enough to fit your puppy. If there is a divider you can section off your puppy's sleep area to the appropriate size. Puppies do not like to potty in their sleep area if the sleeping area just fits your puppy he/she will be less likely to potty in this area and be more successful with potty training.

The Crate that Chilliwack Labradoodles uses for our

Medium size adult Labradoodles is:

24" Tall x 36" Deep x 22" Wide.

Miniature Size adult Labradoodles is:  19.5" Tall  X 30" Deep X 19" Wide

⦁    Baby Gate, If you prefer to contain your puppy to one area, baby gates are ideal.
⦁    X-Pen Exercise pens are a safe option for your puppy if you are busy and cannot be right with him/her. If you need to leave the house for a period of time you can leave food, water a sleeping and potty area in the X-Pen for your puppy.

For a medium-size Multigenerational Australian Labradoodle we suggest purchasing an Exercise Pen at least 36" tall, with a split door.

For a miniature-size Multigenerational Australian Labradoodle we suggest purchasing an Exercise Pen at least 24" tall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*You may want to purchase a taller X-Pen for your puppy so he will fit in it as he grows through all ages and stages. *

⦁    The puppy will prefer a nesting feeling in its crate. (If it is too hot for puppy he may simply want to lie on the bottom of a cool crate) We recommend easily washable items, towels or baby blankets. Pads or cushions are great as well but you will need to make sure they are washable.
⦁    Pet waste bags purchased at your local pet store are convenient for picking up after your puppy. 
⦁    A pooper-scooper you may find helpful.
⦁    A large bucket or garbage with a lid in your back yard to contain your puppies' daily waste. (Adding 2-3 inches of kitty litter to the bottom of your enclosed bucket will help keep your yard clean and tidy while reducing smells and keeps flies from invading your garbage can.
⦁    Brush:  Slicker Brush
⦁    Steel Comb
⦁    Cowboy Magic (this product helps comb through dog coat, will help with smoothing out mats.)

We are often asked if we could recommend a local trainer, at Chilliwack Labradoodles, we use an amazing trainer in Abbotsford. I realize the location may not be ideal for everyone, we are just providing you with information you may find helpful. 

 

Monique Charbonnier is who we use and recommend for Puppy Training and Socialization classes. Monique does in-class training as well as private Coach Training sessions.

Puppies as young as 9 weeks old can join the group class as long as they are health checked by a veterinarian and have their first puppy vaccine Parvovirus and Distemper!

Which your puppy will be receiving before coming home to you.

 

We have attached free online books to your email portion of this Pup Date the books are written by Dr. Ian Dunbar and include his Best Selling Book: Before& After you get your puppy.

At 18 weeks of age your puppy will become a "teenager," the more socialization and training she/he can receive prior, during and after this period the better.

If you live in a close enough proximity and would like to find out how to enroll in a puppy Socialization and Training class here is the instructor Monique Charbonnier's information:

Let's move on to the most important part of our Pup Date, your puppies!

So far the first week of our puppies’ lives has been a very busy one for both the puppies and their Momma Clover.  Clover devotes all of her time to caring for and nurturing each and every one of her nine puppies.  The proof definitely reflects how well they are developing and how much they have been growing!

You will notice that all of the puppies’ eyes are sealed shut, as are their ears. When puppies are born they cannot see, hear or eliminate on their own they are entirely dependent on their mother.  

I would like to introduce you to each of our puppies and tell you a little bit about each one. I will go through each puppy in the order of birth.

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

Good Evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families!

This our two-week Pup Date on the puppies from our Birthday Party Litter!

This second week of life for our puppies has been an accomplished one. Clover still needs to help the puppies eliminate and cleans up after them. However, they are starting to do this on their own now as well. For the past week, the puppies have scootched around on their tummies working on building strength for the big day when they could stand on all fours. That day came this past week, our four-legged babies pull themselves up onto all fours and wobble about like Bambie. It is truly beautiful to watch.

The big milestone for this week is that the puppies are starting to open their eyes! Later this week their eyes should be fully open. Our Labradoodles are born with blue eyes, this will change over time turning to brown, or hazel/green. The puppies can now see outlines and shapes but they still cannot hear. Their ears start to open at about three weeks old, it will often take longer than three weeks for this to occur.

Let's take a look at how each of our medium Australian Labradoodles are doing this week.

I will go through each puppy in the order of birth.

 

 

Red Ribbon is a caramel coloured girl with bits of beautiful white flash.

Families if you have not already emailed to let us know if you will be attending the Family Puppy visit on March 28, 2020, at 1 pm I will ask if you could please do so, I would like to make sure everyone is aware of the date and time.  

Of course, if you have any questions you can email us at

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

 

Good Afternoon Chilliwack Labradoodle Families!

This is your three-week Pup Date for the Surprise Parti Litter!

For today's Pup Date I would like to speak to you a bit about why a dog's crate and bed are important. 

Naptime is so important for puppies. Without quality sleep, just like ourselves your puppy cannot learn as well and will not perform up to their usual standards. Whether we are talking about their crate or bed you want them to feel safe and comfortable so that they receive the best quality sleep they can have.  Puppies need time to decompress especially during the first 16 months of life as they are experiencing and learning everything for the first time, this can be very exhausting for these little fur babies.  It is very important to give them time and a soft, safe and secure place to sleep. A place no one will disrupt them.  In order to achieve this choose a smaller crate, with a nice soft crate mat preferably with a ledge for them to rest their heads. 

For the children in our families, this is the most exciting time and they love to be with their new best friend whenever they get a notion to.  They love to rush up and cuddle with their puppy/dog, pick them up while they are sleeping and quite often be with them every chance they can get. This is the deep bond we like to see our children have with our dogs. This is an opportunity to teach our children about understanding and the responsibility they have for their puppy's needs. While your puppy needs to know that their crate is a safe place and know nobody can get at them and they don't get out of on there own, our children need to understand this as well.  Our children need to understand when the puppy/dog is in its crate they are not to be disturbed.  Your puppy/dog will need a quiet place to have their alone time from the children.  Once the puppy is well-rested he will return to his/her usual self, be refreshed and ready to start the next adventure. A good equation to follow when you bring your puppy home is an hour out of the crate should equal the next hour in for nap time. 

When choosing a crate pick one that is not too large. Dogs instinctively never sleep where they go to the bathroom. If your crate is too large he will have room to go to the bathroom in a corner. To start we suggest a plastic crate. This will give your puppy the secure feeling of being in a den.  A good size plastic starter crate for your puppy would measure approximately 28"L X 20"W X 21"H As your puppy grows into a full-grown dog he will probably prefer a metal or wire crate. These crates are cooler, especially in the summer months. The measurements of our medium size Labradoodles wire crates are 35"L X 22"W X 24"H.  Chilliwack Labradoodles will have already begun to train your dog with the crate, your dog will be familiar with her crate and see it as a safe place, "their den." Using a sheet to cover a crate is sometimes very helpful for a puppy that has a hard time settling down and shutting out distractions. Often puppies and dogs also like the idea that no one can see in, this can be comforting to them.

Guideline for how long a puppy can be in a crate for a single period of time?

It is said that the equation for this is one hour for each month the puppy is old. For the first three months, I would say that is a bit excessive. When you bring your puppy home I would suggest one-hour intervals in the crate would be more the norm. Except of course when your puppy is sleeping, if they fall asleep in the crate and are sleeping for hours that is perfectly ok let them sleep. If you have to run out every now and again once in a while, three hour intervals would be perfectly fine for a three-month-old puppy. As discussed we want your puppies crate to be a place they want to be, whenever you put them in the crate get in a good habit of putting their favorite bone or a stuffed Kong into the crate. They will be content to be in their crate and able to exercise their brain as well as help with their teething. 

As I said we will have started your puppy on basic crate training so when your puppy comes home your puppy can usually sleep in their crate for up to six hours during the evening. Now because your puppy will be transitioning to your home, all of his/her routines and familiar sights, sounds, smells not to mention Momma and Litter Mates are gone your puppy may regress a bit in all or any areas and you will need to work up to the six hours of sleep. 

This third week our puppies have had a few milestones, you will notice from their pictures that they all have their eyes open, they are up on all fours walking confident yet a bit wobbly, they recognize us, humans, when we walk into the room, they have discovered their own voices and they are starting to play with each other! This has been a busy week for our puppies!

Let's take a look at how each of our medium Australian Labradoodles are doing this week.

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

 

Good Afternoon Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! 

This is our Four-week Pup Date on the puppies from The Surprise Parti Litter!

The last Pup Date we provided you with some information around The Importance Of Quality Sleep For Your Puppy, as well as information regarding Crates and Beds. Earlier today you all should have received an email from us with important information regarding an amazing Online Puppy Training Program that we have recently partnered with "BAXTER and Bella."

 

Speaking to you as a family with dogs, not just a breeder, I can say training has been absolutely invaluable to all of us, young and older. It is much better to start the training right from the beginning "now" rather than wait until an unwanted behavior or situation arises, and it will. The Baxter and Bella Program is designed to start before you bring your puppy home, in order for you to prepare for your puppy. 

To learn more and get started, click on the link below and remember in order to receive your 25% instant savings, you must enter discount code CHILLIWACK at checkout.  (CHILLIWACK is in all upper case!)

This week was an adventurous one in our puppies' lives! The puppies have moved from their whelping room into the puppy nursery. With their whelping bed gone we have introduced them to their crate. They are starting to migrate into the crate for sleep time and are enjoying it. They are keeping their crate clean just as we hope and using puppy pads outside their crate to potty.  This will help the transition to their new home with you if indeed you decide to use crate training when they come home.

The puppy's ears are open and their little teeth are starting to breakthrough.

We introduced them to kibble this week, as part of a natural weaning process we slowly start to feed them a mixture of softened kibble, pumpkin and puppy formula.  It did not take them long to realize lapping up food in a pan was quite delicious and they are messy little pros at it now!

Let's take a look at how each of our medium Australian Labradoodles are doing this week.

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

 

Good Afternoon Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! 

This is our Five-week Pup Date on the puppies from The Surprise Parti Litter!

Last week's Pup Date we introduced you to an online training program which we can highly recommend to all of our families, BAXTER and Bella. We hope you have all had a chance to at least watch the introductory video and look through their website!  We have a new website page dedicated our BAXTER and Bella online training program if you are interested here is the link.  https://www.chilliwacklabradoodles.com/chilliwack-labradoodles-puppy-train

This week we would like to give you information regarding Exercise, Puppy Food/Eating Routine and Alone Time For Your Puppy.  

Puppy Food, Treats and Bones

-Right now we are feeding our puppies a high-quality kibble that can be purchased at many pet stores such as Pet Smart. The brand we use is Nutrience Sub-Zero For Puppies, it is the Green Bag.

-Another great food to feed your puppy would be "Smack," which is a high quality raw dehydrated dog food. You will not find it at all pet stores only some. We order ours online and have it shipped to our door. 

-Ziwi Peak Brand Dog Food another high quality raw dehydrated dog food. Not all pet stores keep this brand in stock we get ours from "Tail Blazers," Pet Food Store.

-We use the "Ziwi Peak" as training treats and our dogs love them! You can use whatever your dog has for kibble to train him he will be quite happy with that. 

-Our favorite treats and bones to give our dogs are:

their kibble, dehydrated liver treats, various dehydrated meat treats, pieces of cheese, small cubed cooked chicken (this can be messy when using for reward, the cooked chicken will break apart easily)bully sticks, deer antlers, and their Kong. 

Feeding Routine

By the time you take your puppy home, he/she will be eating dry Nutrience Sub-Zero Puppy Kibble three times a day.  The amount that you feed your puppy at each feeding can be determined by your puppy's weight.  Please read the instructions on the bag for your puppy's daily feeding amount based on his weight. Divide the amount by three and that will be your puppies portion of kibble at each meal.  As your puppy grows you can increase the amount based on weight and divide his/her portions into two feedings.  Typically when your puppy comes home to you they will be on an 8:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 5:00 pm feeding routine so that your puppy has plenty of time to eliminate before bed. Fresh unlimited access to water throughout the day is extremely important to your dog, we suggest putting the water away about 1.5 hours prior to bedtime, in order to help with night time potty.

Exercise

For your puppies, it is important that you do not over-exercise them. Puppies do need a nice balance of both mental and physical stimulation. Puppies need to exercise to develop growing muscles, but we do not want to over-exercise them because their growth plates are still growing and we do not want to cause any trauma to their developing plates. We need to be mindful of our puppies' hips, all puppies are susceptible to hip dysplasia.  At Chilliwack Labradoodles, we test all of our breeding dogs in order to avoid any hereditary factors of hip dysplasia.  Hips are affected by genetics and the environment. We have not only covered the genetic component of Hip Dysplasia but we have also started being mindful of our puppies' environment by making sure the puppies have a good grip beneath them while nursing so they do not slip causing stress on the hip joints. Assuring their bedding is sturdy, nice but not too soft. When your puppy comes home to you one of the important things you can do to support your puppies' growth is to limit your puppies' use of stairs as much as possible.  You will want to carry your puppy up and down the stairs for at least the first six months.

When you take your puppy out for a walk it is said that a reasonable timeline for your puppy to walk is 5 minutes for every month your puppy is old. Up until your puppy is about one year old. Once your puppy is one year old he will be ready to jog or run beside you but up until this age, walking is best for your puppy. If you have the opportunity to change the terrain that you are walking on, gravel, grass, residential streets, etc. do so as much as you can. Not only is it good for your puppies' physical growth but introducing them to all sorts of new experiences builds up their confidence and resilience as well. As well as walking, your dog can enjoy as much back yard play as it wants. There is no need to limit backyard play.

Alone Time For Your Puppy!

Labradoodles are smart and Labradoodles are very social. We need to set them up for success when leaving them home on their own. We have begun the transition here at Chilliwack Labradoodles by doing things such as the weaning process from their momma, transitions from their whelping area to their nursery, nursery to the sensory gym and taking the puppies out and spending puppy to human, one-one time with them. The guide for time spent away from your puppy is one hour per month your puppy is old.  I would not suggest leaving your puppy at three months old alone for three hours at a time often, only once in a while. 

Before you leave your puppy you need to prepare his surroundings we suggest you set up your x-pen, inside the x-pen, you will want to leave your puppies crate, with a pee pad, freshwater, an exercise cube or food puzzle, "Safe" toys and a Kong stuffed with a treat placed inside your puppies crate. If you like you can leave the TV or Music on for your puppy.  You do want to leave your puppy alone on a regular basis for 1/2 hour to 1-hour intervals they need to learn how to be independent, they need to experience you being gone and know that you will return. 

If you are working for the day or not able to be home you will need to make arrangements for your puppy.  You can arrange Doggy Daycare, (once your puppy is fully vaccinated) someone can come into your home for periods of the day or you could have a dog walker.  The person ideally could spend an hour in your dog's presence even if they are not interacting directly with your dog, the dog knows that they have a human with them and this is important to them.  This is especially true of Labradoodles, they are very social dogs, they have been bred to be social, this is part of the reason for their popularity. It also means we need to accommodate this social need and understand that they are totally dependent on us and their strongest relationship is with their people.

 

This week the puppies have been learning through play! At Chilliwack Labradoodles, we use different sensory modes to socialize and desensitize our puppies. We ensure they are exposed to as many different modalities as possible throughout their time with us. The puppies have been introduced to and love their new Sensory Gymnasium! Not only is this Gymnasium Fun but it helps the puppies become desensitized to different noises, textures, shapes, sizes, and colours. It helps them to learn how to navigate obstacles, gain confidence in our world and become resilient.  

The puppies have been exposed to various surface texture, environments, and noises. We observed one startle initially with the sound of the vacuum cleaner, most others took a pause and cocked their little heads trying to figure it out and then they grew bored and went about their business. We continue to take notes on their reactions to new experiences, energy levels, and whether they are first to take initiative in a situation or like to hold back and see what happens. 

Whew, I know that was a lot of information! Let's see first hand how the puppies are doing this week!

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

Good Evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! 

This our six-week Pup Date on the puppies from our Suprise Parti Litter! 

We would like to wish everyone a very special holiday week and hope your puppy pictures bring joyful smiles to all of you!

Last week we provided you information regarding Exercise, Puppy Food/Eating Routine and Alone Time for your puppy. This week we will speak with you about Toilet Training!

 

What is the best way to toilet train my puppy?

At Chilliwack Labradoodles, we find Crate training is a very successful way to train your puppy.  Puppies do not like to eliminate in their beds.  

 

Your puppy will need to sleep where you can hear it. If your puppy begins to whine in his crate or make noises immediately get up, leash your puppy while she is still in the crate, pick your puppy up out of the crate and pack it outside to your "potty place." (Try to avoid taking your puppy out of the crate while it is pawing at the crate, the second he/she is not pawing quickly open the crate and say "let's go potty." If you are continually retrieving your puppy exactly when they whine or paw crate they will get the message that, "ahhh, if I do this my owner will let me out." They will think you want them to do that behavior.)  You will find having a consistent and familiar word that everyone in the household uses to key the puppy to potty is very important. For example, our word is "Go Potty." Your puppy/dog will want to sniff around that is ok for a bit. We do not walk around we stand still let the puppy roam as far as the leash allows, only in the area we have designated for potty. We say "go potty!" The second the puppy goes potty, in our happy voice, smiley face, we say good potty!! We reward her with a small liver treat or whatever treat you choose. Puppies recognize by your facial expressions and tone of voice if we are happy with what they are doing and will more likely continue that behavior. The treat reinforces to them that "ahh that is what "go potty," means! If your puppy continues to sniff around let her for a few more minutes just in case they have more business to do. Do not let them take too long as we want them to understand this is "potty time" not playtime. If this is indeed the middle of the night pack her back to the crate and tuck her in.  Every time they potty give them a treat and be very excited and happy for them! Australian Labradoodles are very intelligent and this will speed potty training or any training up, it is a way of positively reinforcing the good behavior that you want from them.

Throughout the day use the same method as described above when having to take your puppy out to go potty.  First thing in the morning will be her first potty break.  Each time whether it is night or day and your puppy is coming out of her crate she will need to be taken potty. After each meal and each drink of water, your puppy will need to be taken potty.  After your puppy has eaten a meal wait for about 10 minutes and you take it out for potty.  If she doesn't eliminate, take your puppy in and put her in her crate. (Remember crate time is a positive time, have a bone or special toy for her in there.) Wait for 10-20 minutes, take the puppy out potty again. If your puppy eliminates this time praise and rewards her. If she does not eliminate bring her back into the crate, keep repeating until she eliminates.  The more consistent you are with this in the early weeks will instill to the puppy that this is how potty time works and they will learn quickly what is expected of them.  The more often your puppy potties in the house the harder it will be to break that behavior. Every puppy has learned behaviors whether they are wanted or unwanted behaviors that is why we need to consistently promote good behaviors for both the puppy and ourselves long term relationship and success. 

A tool that can train your puppy to let you know when he/she needs to potty is to place a bell on your door and each time you take him/her to potty ring it-eventually they will catch on and begin to ring the bell when they need to be let out. 

You will get to know your puppy and will soon be increasing these times to longer periods.  It will not take long for your puppy to know which door they need to wait to go potty. Or which area of the yard is their potty spot. Your consistency and patience in the short term will pay off for many years to come!

 

This week we have taken most of the puppy pads out of the puppies nursery leaving them with exposed flooring this is one more step in the potty training process.  More often than not they will migrate over to where the puppy pads are to do their business, this is progress!

The puppies have been growing their own little personalities, and are inquisitive and comical as they navigate everything new that is introduced to them.  The puppies of courses still play with their sensory gym, they love their tunnel and wobble pad.  They have experienced their first car rides this week, you will be happy to hear nobody became car sick! They have played on a variety of surfaces concrete, carpet, vinyl, gravel, grass, dirt and mud! Now that the weather is a bit warmer they love the extra outdoor time.  

 

Let's take a look at how each of our medium Australian Labradoodles is doing this week.

I will go through each puppy in the order of birth.

Red Ribbon is a caramel coloured girl with bits of beautiful white flash.

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

 

Good Evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! 

This is our Seven-week Pup Date on the puppies from The Surprise Parti Litter!

The last Pup Date we provided you information regarding Potty Training.

This week we will provide you with information around Veterinarian, Vaccination, and Deworming. As well as the moment you have all been waiting for  "THE BIG REVEAL" Which puppy will be your forever fur baby! 

All nine of our puppies from the Surprise Parti Litter had their Puppy Veterinarian Appointment and are all well and healthy! No one became motion sick in the car, and our veterinarian and staff. Our Veterinarian and Staff had only great things to report back regarding the litter!  

Veterinarian

If you have not already done so you should be inquiring after a Veterinarian for your new puppy. 

During the Coronavirus epidemic, most veterinarians are only open for urgent care. However, you can still do your research and find a veterinarian. When looking for the right veterinarian for you we suggest that you phone a few clinics in your area and start off by speaking with the front staff.  Speak to your family and friends to gain information from them as to who they could recommend as a veterinarian. 

Information that may be important to you will likely be....

-What are their hours? Are their hours convenient for what you are needing? 

-Does their office have a 24-hour vet on call? or will you need to seek after-hours Veterinary services elsewhere?  It is great if your vet does their own after-hours emergency services even if they rotate their after-hours shifts with other Veterinarians in the same office. This way they will have access to all of your puppies history, they will likely be able to answer some of your questions on the phone which could save you a late-night trip to the vet.

-Is the veterinarian familiar with Australian Labradoodles?

If you decide this could be a potential Veterinarian for you ask if you can schedule an appointment for an interview with the Veterinarian. There will likely be the cost of consultation involved but it is important to make sure your new Veterinarian aligns with your beliefs in puppy health care. It is important to have a good relationship with your Veterinarian and that together you can decide on the best treatment options for your puppy/dog.

Vaccinations

Your puppy will have had his/her first vaccination and deworming before they come home to you. The next vaccination and deworming should be arranged for at least 4weeks after the first one, the third four weeks after the second vaccination and deworming. Your veterinarian will advise you on this. When your puppy is 20 weeks old we suggest that you ask your Vet to do Titre Testing, which is a way they can determine if your puppy has sufficient immunity built up and therefore no longer needs vaccinations. We would also suggest having a follow-up Titre Testing done once they are three years old. Most often they will not need any follow up booster vaccinations.

Today is the most exciting day next to Puppy Pick-Up Day! We could not be more pleased with Clover's Surprise Parti Litter! This litter of puppies encompasses everything we are looking for in terms of temperament and personality in an Australian Labradoodle. After teasing through each of these little one's personalities and tendencies we were able to use all of our Puppy Assignment criteria to match the puppies to their forever home!      

Ms. Red Ribbon will be joining the Cox family and remain in our beautiful city of Chilliwack! She is full of love and life and will be happy to join her family on their daily hikes and we are sure she will be thrilled to accompany you on your sailing adventures! Red Ribbon loves to play with children and will be happy to have the grandkids over to romp around with, rest assured when they leave she will be equally as happy to settle at your feet while you finish your work.  Congratulations Cox family may the next chapter in your lives be filled with entertaining excursions!

 

 

                                                             

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ms. Purple Ribbon has a smooth caramel coat with a well-rounded temperament to match.  This is one of the reasons we chose her for her forever family.  Purple Ribbon already has a new name, she will no longer be called Purple Ribbon but our dear "Appa." Her forever family together chose her name and decided Appa would suit any fur-baby added to their home and we agree this little girl truly fits her new name! Appa will also be staying in our hometown of Chilliwack with the Wallace/O'coin Family! Appa is an active and confident little girl she loves all people especially children which of course makes this a great fit for her new family. We will need to be upfront and warn you this girl is happy to settle down for tones of cuddles and love! Congratulations, you now have a four-legged baby to add to the two-legged ones! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mr.Blue Ribbon boy has a caramel coat with a white flash and a huge white marshmallow of a heart! This little boy excuses the stocky, blocky look and square short nose his family described, that paired with his loveable and sweet disposition will surely win the heart of his new lifetime companion, Cassidy. Mr. Blue Ribbon approaches things with clever caution, to begin with, but once he becomes familiar with a situation his confidence takes over and any inhibition gives way to sheer joy and fun!  Cassidy once both of you have an established trust he will look to you to teach and guide him.  This bright little boy will quickly become a regular face in your family album!
