We bred Sophia to CH Tallpines It's Got A Hemi In It at the beginning of May. If pregnant, puppies will be due on 6/30/18. We will due an ultrasound at the end of May to confirm pregnancy. If you are interested in this mating, please fill out the questionnaire and send to email@example.com. We will raise the puppies with the Puppy Culture protocol and with holistic methods (raw food, nomograph (due to determine when mother's immunity has run out so that vaccines are given at the right time.)) In Sophia's last litter, the nomograph stated that vaccines should not be given until 10 weeks. Chances are high that this litter will not have their first vaccine before they go to their new home. I will not compromise the puppies health, so if you or your vet are uncomfortable with the way that I raise the puppies, then you should probably seek another breeder.
Heidi's prior litters were raised according to this protocol - www.puppyculture.com and the upcoming litters will be raised the same way. Heidi's litters were 90% potty trained (they are still puppies after all); they were clicker trained starting at 4 weeks old and knew sit, down, stand and how to walk properly on a leash. Exercises are performed to reduce the chance of resource guarding and each puppy has spent individual time alone in a crate multiple times before leaving our house. I play an app each day of different sounds that your puppy may encounter throughout it's normal life - fireworks, thunderstorms, construction sounds, trains, babies crying, etc. Most of the time, the puppies are kept past the normal 8 weeks, that many breeders keep their puppies.
All puppies that are sold as companions are placed with limited AKC registration (meaning that they can't be bred to any other dogs) and our contract has severe penalties if the dog is bred without our permission. We are member of the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of America - please see their position on crossbreeding. We strongly feel the same. We will not hesitate to enforce our contract.
If you are interested in a future litter, please fill out the questionnaire on the Litters page. General inquiries regarding breedings, should be send to firstname.lastname@example.org
