Welcome! Our pups are kept in a temperature controlled environment suited for all seasons to ensure they're not too hot, not too cold.
We have designed a high top counter to go over all documents and answer any/all questions you may have. Here, we will get your name added to the My Puppy Owner list as well.
We have a whelping and weigh station for recording weight at birth & at every 3, 5, & 7 week mark. We like to track growth and progression as pups mature.
We have lighting for mom at night and fan (if needed) in addition to A/C or heat for winter and summer months.
During the whelping phase, the aisle is partitioned for a nursing side and a resting/feeding area for the dam. Resting/Feeding pictured.

Once newborns have arrived, we clean up and get them settled in a cotton bed for a few days to make mom as comfortable & stress free as possible.
As the pups get bigger, we move them into a kiddie pool with an absorbent whelping pad that is changed daily. This helps significantly with clean up.
