We are a small hobby kennel that takes pride in the quality, charm, and appearance of our babies, with emphasis to improve the breed standard. We ensure excellent health for all our dogs with regular preventive health measures, such as current vaccinations and de-worming treatments. All our chihuahuas are fed a combination of high-quality dog food, natural meat, veggies, and treats, plus relevant vitamins.
Our goalis to have pups with healthy wonderful outgoing temperaments that adhere to the breed standard. We are there when they are born and consider them a part of our familyuntil they leave for your home. We start socialization at birth and continue extraordinary care and handling to get them ready for you. Our socialization formula ensures our chihuahuas will be cuddly, yet independent ... a mover, not a shaker. All of our puppies are played with daily and live in the house, underfoot. They are used to the normal sounds in our home and hopefully yours. Neighbor kids and friends come over weekly to visit and play with the pups and dogs.
Most all our pups will be in the 3 to 6-pound range as an adult. Occasionally, there are some that are a bit smaller, and maybe even a bit larger. We won't be able to guess their adult size until we can see their growth pattern. Their adult weight is not included in the guarantee, only suggested based on past litters and weight charts.
At about 4 weeks we start taking puppies outside to learn the smells of outside and to learn to go to the bathroom out there. My goal is to get them excited to go outside. Since all our dogs live in the house with us (as he will at yours when he goes to live with you), it is a big thing for us to get them to want to learn to go to the bathroom out there, as well as, play or go for walks. The moms are also good at teaching the pups the art of play and the necessities of going to the bathroom. By the time they go to your home, they are almost potty trained. They still need to be trained in the lifestyle of your home, which is something we cannot do here.
It is our dutyto the pup and its mom to find the best home for them. I need to know more about the future owners of our babies. Some of the things we will ask if, you do not tell us: Do you have a fenced yard or exercise area? Have you had a chihuahua before? What made you decide this was the right time for a new pup? How many will be helping you take care of your new puppy? What personality are you looking for? Have you ever considered or taken a pup or dog to obedience school?
Deposits accepted from approved homes or families. With your deposit, you can name your pup, and we will call him by that name. This will help in the transition from our home to yours. It is my goal to update you weekly with new photos so you can watch him or her develop and grow into a charming pet. You will get a USB of all these pictures and some of the parents and littermates when you get your pup in your puppy packet.
After extensive research with different types of vitamins, we have decided that NuVet is the best vitamin supplement choice for all our puppies and adult dogs. We want the best for our puppies and have included that new family needs to get and give the NuVet Wafer to their puppy for the Health Guarantee to be effective.
