Are Born in Our Bedroom
The puppies are with us until they are 8 to 10 weeks of age. We do temperament tests at 7 weeks and the litter is evaluated for show and breeding prospects...Those puppies are matched with show homes and performance homes.... I make the selection of which puppy goes to which family after many hours observing the puppies and listening you when we are talking... Some things are so subtle... This process can not be rushed... Raising puppies is such a labor of love for us.... we want to do the very best job possible. Many times there are more show prospects than there are show homes. I have placed a show prospect in a companion home simply because it was the right dog for that particular family
Our Purpose in Temperament Testing Our Puppies
A great deal of time and research goes into each mating. Puppy temperament testing enhances our own knowledge of the litter. We strive to produce stable temperaments and puppies that will be a member of the family.
We spend many hours observing the puppies in other settings. We have a familiarity with each puppy and it helps us in the task of choosing the best one to join your family.
Each puppy has the following before he/she goes to their new home:
* Bio-Sersor Programstimulation starting on Day 3
* Tail Cropped and Dewclaws removed
* Puppy Imprinting exercises
* DNA Testing as necessary
* Eye exam by a board certified veterinary opthomologist
* Temperament tested & AKC Working Breed Judge evaluation
* Socialization with children, adults, older people and other animals
* Had several car rides including a trip to the foothills.
* Vet visits, First Puppy Shots & Kennel Cough Vaccine
* Registered with AKC
We follow Pat Hastings "Rule of Sevens"....
By the time you get your puppy he/she is very well socialized and able to handle most situations.
We give unlimited life time phone and e-mail support for your puppy.
Are Very Well Socialized...
We devote our lives to the puppies first 8 to 10 weeks, giving each of them lots of attention giving them the best start at life.
It is our hope that the expert care socialization and training that your puppy gets with us will transfer to you having a beautiful well adjusted Black Russian Terrier puppy to add to your family. It is then your responsibility to continue a lifetime of socializing and training your dog to cement training and sociaizing that a Black Russian Terrier needs.
The following will let you know what is happening.. those long endless days before you get your puppy!
