How I Raise My Puppies

The puppies are born/whelped in a lovely room adjacent to my kitchen. They remain there with momma 
(until about 4 weeks old) being cuddled/weighed and handled daily.
I introduce Early Stimulation Exercises at 3 days old, for more info please see Early Neurological Testing

At around 3.5 weeks of age they are moved into the family room to be with the other dogs, cat, TV, visitors, indoor play area and outdoor play area and of course momma! I start litter box training at 3 weeks to help initiate house breaking (those are the boxes you see with wood pellets in it). At 6 weeks, weather permitting, pups have access to the outdoors
