Puppies get the royal treatment at my house! As soon as they’re born, I go all "gaga" over them and meticulously care for them. They are quickly exposed to various situations to help them become balanced and confident companions.
They are also quickly initiated to daily drives and grooming sessions, various games, and lots of visits from neighbourhood children (which they enjoy shamelessly!). The pups gradually learn to sleep in their respective carriers, which will travel with them to their new homes, along with familiar objects they will have associated with calmness and security.
And, of course, being Portuguese Water Dogs, they will all have had the pleasure of swims in the river or pool before leaving!
Puppies are ready to leave at around 9 weeks old. They are registered at CKC (as non-breeders), dewormed, and vaccinated. They are also all subject to a temperament test to help match the right puppy and family.
Since Maya and Dida only mate at the most once a year, reservations are strongly recommended!
