Puppies are whelped inside and remain there until 4-5 weeks of age. After this time they are moved to the barn and a puppy play pen where they have more room to move about and strengthen their legs as they learn to walk and play. Puppies are handled daily from birth and exposed to many different stimuli. Puppies are exposed to different toys, sounds and surfaces. All of which are very important to the development of a young puppy’s mind and confidence.
Puppies are exposed to grass, gravel, linoleum, marble, wood chips, carpet, uneven surfaces, raised surfaces, a wobble board, baths, a loud air dryer, and even a small pool. They spend the day in the large pen, playing in the yard, or in and out of our home.
Spur Strap is an advocate of crate training and because of this, crate training is started when puppies are about 6 weeks of age. Puppies are not yet house trained for you, but this process gives new owners a head start in potty training.
Puppies are sold on spay/neuter agreements and are ready for their new homes at 8 weeks of age. The goal is that puppy parents have a positive experience bringing home their new family member. Spur Strap is here to help you every step of the way!
