All my puppies are born inside my home under full time care. I would never miss a delivery or let my girls go through that alone.
I will camp out next to the whelping box and most times a litter of 8 can take 8 hours of delivery time. So I do not get much sleep during these times and a few days after puppies are born.
Puppies stay inside until at least 4 weeks old.
It depends on the size litter and the weather as to when they move onto my covered back porch in a big play pen.
Here they get to romp around and play with toys and mommas get a break.
For the most part my babies never touch the ground before leaving except for the few outdoor pictures.
I do take weekly photos of the puppies so you can see them grow each week. This is a process so I appreciate your patience. This is hours of bathing each puppy, clipping toe nails, changing ribbons, getting them completely dry, hoping they sit still a second for a picture, hoping no one gets dirty again before their turn. Then its move pictures to my computer and website builder and get them posted.
Usually by the time they go home they will sit cute like this guy you see sitting in my kitchen sink below.
I sit a bowl of clean water on the other side of sink and a toy for somehing to look at and so they don not drink their bath water, cuz they will try.
My puppies do come with a 2 year guarantee on hips and life threatening genetic defects if kept on nuvet vitamins.
