Our puppies are raised around cats and kids, lots of other dogs, a few goats and a variety of different people.
We have TV, radio, telephone, washing machines and dryer and lots of different homey type noises going on in the whelping kennel so the pups are used to these sounds.
Our puppies are raised in large pens with plenty of room to play in on the inside and doggie doors that go outside to big pens for them to play in.
Our backyard used to be our pride and joy but it has quite literally gone to the dogs! It is a playground on most any given day at any given time to several dogs and puppies!
Our adult dogs are housed either in big kennels with large indoor pens with doggie doors leading to big outside runs, or huge outside pens with warm dog houses. All of our pens have access to big play yards so they can run and run and run if they want!
