Below are some photos of puppies from previous litters and comments from people who have bought the puppies.
Hi Catherine, Just have to share! Gracie is the most adaptable, adorable little girl. Thank you for a lovely pup!
Apart from minor whining when I put her into her carry-crate for a nap yesterday afternoon, she's taking her new life in stride. Her carry crate fits inside the sturdy one, so she slept there last night in a small barricaded area of the room with her potty patch accessible. She stirred a few times, but didn't ask to go out until 7 and hadn't even used the potty patch! Such a clever little thing. Of course, she then leapt out the door directly into a snowbank and needed rescuing.
There's not been a single pee inside so far, but the wind is too cold to keep her out long enough to pooh, so she finally went inside. However, that was right ON the potty patch that she'd ignored since she arrived. You did a truly fabulous job with her!
Also, she has the following instinct you'd once mentioned. Gracie is a little shadow inside and out, and is very focused on us.
Thank you again, for a delightful little girl!
Hi Catherine! Penny has been awesome!! She and Razz became best friends in 1/2 of a day. You wouldn't believe how much they have played. Penny has stolen the hearts of the Vet clinic and the pet store cause we had to get her a coat and she was terrific. She has been eating well and she has used the "Potty Patch" and the great outdoors. She had one accident but it was our fault cause I didn't understand the cue yet. She has also discovered the "puppy in the mirror" - she is intrigued by the movement and can't figure out how this puppy hides so fast. The vet asked me to give her your card and I am doing that. Your puppy has made quite the impression. She has fit right into our lives like she has always been there. You could not have picked a better pup for us. Thank you again. Joyce, Arnel, Penny and Razzle.
Catherine, wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying having Piper! We never stop laughing he is such a character! We took him to our vet at Capilano Pet hospital in North Van, this past Monday. They went nuts thought he was so cute. I laughed cuz right away before I said anything the vet said he is mostly schnauzer but what else? I said he is all schnauzer and explained the coloring to her. She had never seen that before. He also was completely healthy just like your vet said. She again went over the vaccination schedule.The first few nights we were up every 2 hours and he did pee outside each time but now he is sleeping from 1030 pm to 6 in the morning so has adjusted to being on his own with out his mom and siblings. He pretty much is house broken you did most of it.He is so friendly and even on Halloween never reacted to fire crackers or fireworks on our block. You really made him used to loud sounds. He wants to be outside all day everyday. Doesn't matter if it is raining he is out there. His little white paws are green from rolling and playing in the grass so needless to say we are going to give him a bath! He loves his crate no problems at night and during the day he wanders in there for naps. Yesterday I had to go to the dental surgeon for an hour so Piper got left in his crate that time. He did fine. He has the run of 2 big rooms when we are home otherwise we are with him when he goes around the house. Hasn't mastered the stairs yet. Can't thank you enough Catherine. Piper is off to a great start and we are having a ball with him. All the neighbors love him already! Every morning he sits on the front lawn watching all the cars leave and then he whimpers! He is such a social butterfly like you said! Will send some pics as he gets older. I will book a grooming apt. in the next while. We comb him everyday and there never seems to be any tangles! So thanks again, he has stolen our hearts already! Debbie Milne
Hi Catherine, we've been thinking about you and can't thank you enough for the joy that you have provided in our life. We got a Java and Bentley, blue collared, puppy in late June and haven't looked back. We can't imagine our life without Whelan. He has been such a great addition to our family. We would like to give you credit for raising Whelan and providing him with the foundation to such a wonderful start to his life. As a result of your efforts the transition for Whelan and for us seemed effortless. He came to us very brave and accepting. We anticipated that Whelan would have exhibited behaviors due to leaving his "pack" , but he settled in quite comfortably.
Whelan is very good with our two kids and they love him dearly. Shockingly, my husband is the biggest suck when it comes to Whelan; he absolutely adores him. My time with Whelan is typically spent walking, cuddling, and grooming him "I find him very calming". He has learned the commands of sit, shake a paw, down, up, and be gentle. As far as house training goes he's almost accident free, other than those times that are owner inflicted. Recently we tried leaving Whelan at home on his own without being in his pen (I was extremely nervous), but to my surprise he did extremely well. In the past, leaving Whelan was a bit of an ordeal; reason being is that we needed to get the pen all set up and he would cry until a few minutes after we had left (we felt heartbroken). Now when we leave he has free range of the house and hasn't made a peep when we've left and the house is just as we left it. Whelan is very social. He interacts well with a wide range of animals and people. However, there are times that he needs to take a step back and give the person or animal the time that they need to feel comfortably in the situation. We're hoping with time and training (without losing his drive in being so friendly) he'll learn to hold back until he's given permission. We'd also like to mention that he does great while travelling and because of the crate training that you started and we've continued he's done great in a variety of overnight situations. As you can see in the attached photo's he is growing beautifully. His coloring is adorable and his size is perfect for us (he's a bit bigger than we expected, but we wouldn't change a thing). We take him to get groomed every couple months and keep his shots up to date. He's a happy and healthy puppy. Thanks again! From the March Family
