Our Puppy-Rearing Philosophy

 

We raise our puppies in our house.

A room next to our kitchen is where the puppies' first

couple months are spent.  They get a lot of socialization

being in our house.  When the pups are on their feet, we

have an open crate where they will choose to sleep, thereby getting "crate trained."  (Dogs like to have their own cave of sorts to sleep in.)  Their room also opens to a yard where housebreaking can begin.  They naturally use the edges of their room to eliminate so transitioning to regular visits outside when age appropriate brings along housebreaking nicely.  By about seven weeks of age, the pups are on their way to being housetrained. 

The pups are highly socialized as we have many people, especially children who interact with the puppies. The pups get a lot of play time and handling.

We request that pets that are not shown in conformation be neutered/spayed by six months of age. We sell the pups with limited registration only with the rare exception being seasoned Airedale breeders. We register all our litters with the AKC. They are wormed and age-appropriately immunized.  And all pf our pups are microchipped before going to their forever homes.
