When we have puppies in our home, it seems like everything centers around puppy care and early training. We count it a blessing but there is never a dull moment. We are adding new equipment and problem-solving challenges to our socialization program, which is always a lot of fun. We are reorganizing to make more space for our new activities which is a challenge in itself .
Right now, it’s pretty quiet around here but we are hoping to have puppies this fall. We just plan a few litters yearly. We were expecting them a little earlier but Mother Nature has her own time schedule. It gives us a little more time to get ready. For those of you that are on our waiting list, it is going to be a little longer wait than we had anticipated. Please let us know if you have any questions.
This year, we have had many requests for mini-doodles. At Rainfields we do only have standard sized doodles. Our puppies typically range from 50- 75 lbs. with a few of the boys even maturing a bit larger. They definitely can’t fit into the mini category. When our pups are newborns, they weigh just 1 lb. more or less.. When they go to their new homes at 8-10 weeks, most are between 8 and 12lbs. They grow so fast as they know they have a lot of livin’ to do. They are so full of love and the joy of life. Although they are not mini doodles, some never seem to realize they are not lap dog size.
Have a great summer! I am blessed to share in doodle travels as families send me pics of their vacations. Most do travel well and love to be included. One warning tho’, doodles are quite the crowd stoppers. Be prepared to make new friends. I love the pictures sent my way so a big ‘thanks’ to those of you that do.
