SOME TIPS ON PURCHASING YOUR NEXT 4 LEGGED MEMBER OF THE FAMILY
Meeting parents is crutial, sometimes you cannot meet the father as he may be across the world. You can meet the mother and/or relatives. Making sure they are good temperments and represetatives of the breed. Shelties in their home, should be able to come & visit, as their owner has let you in their home. Are the dogs/puppies comfortable in the house? Do they spend time in the home? Are they strictly kenneled or left out in a yard and dont have bonds with people/family members? No breeder can breed for good temperment, if they dont know what their dogs temperments are like. Do not save puppies in bad situations, the next batch of bad situations will be born before you know it :(
Puppies should be raised in the midst of the household, not tucked away, getting accustomed to all the noises in a house, kitchen, vacumn, dishwasher, ect.
We have our puppies on different surfaces, wood, rubber, grading, concrete, linoleum, carpet & on fun surfaces like teeters, work out balls, plastic boxes to teach body awareness & balance to young babies.
We take our puppies to other homes, car rides, to work for visits, expose them to car noises, city noises.
Puppies are busy, they need individual care on a daily basis, we strive to have families leave with well adjusted babies, that are outgoing and great embassadors in their community. Always happy to meet new people and new things as they grow.
We highly reccomend basic puppy classes with new puppies. A simple set of puppy training classes is worth the lifetime of the dog. Puppy socialization is done by ourselves before they leave, but you must keep that work up, taking puppies to dog parks, meeting many dogs & people, and class helps with a balanced well adjusted puppy.
Anyone can say they will gaurantee for hereditary problems, but do the research and find out if the parents have had hips done by OFA (orthapedic foundation for animals), eyes CERF, Thyroid tested for hereditary auto immune thyroid disease, & Vwd which is a bleeding disorder in our breed that can cause serious internal bruising and bleeding
Look for good responsible breeders who test their breeding stock, stand up to their puppies for the rest of their lives, and wont leave you hanging with sick or ill tempered animals
