Both parents are AKC registered and health tested
We handle each puppy daily to not only monitor its health but begin socialization even though they cannot yet hear or see they can smell and be desensitized to touch. Read about how we use Puppy School to help with desensitization.
We continue to monitor daily weights for the entire first week after that we do weekly checkups. We include a record of weights, vaccinations, and de-worming in the health record provided on each pup’s webpage. As a general rule, the pups will gain about an ounce a day through this time.
By week two eyes and ears begin opening and we can tell what type of coat the pups will have.
Week three is when the fun begins the pups start to get their bellies up off the ground, heads come up, and my personal favorite, play begins. This is when we start training the pups in earnest so many new sights, smells, and sounds to be exposed to so that shyness can be avoided.

We are so thrilled we found our little sausage dog from Spottadachs Kennels. Ducky is small but mighty! Right now at 13 weeks old she doesn’t have time to cuddle, she is too busy doing zoomies around the house and chasing her older sisters! She enjoys her daily walks and swimming at the local reservoir. She has such a fun silly personality. We can’t wait to make more memories with our little adventure weenie!
