How We Raise Our Goldendoodles Puppies

Prepping our puppies for their forever homes is our top priority! So, the care we take in breeding to create the best puppies is matched by the thorough socialization we give them throughout the formative first eight weeks of life.

0 - 2 Weeks

Initially puppies find comfort in an in-home whelping box with constant supervision and care. Each puppy is weighed in the morning to ensure proper growth.

 

At this stage they are growing quickly and bonding with each other and their mom. Toward the end of two weeks their eyes are opening, and they are learning to walk.

The excitement begins with learning to play with toys, chasing each other around, and receiving lots of hands-on socialization.

 

As you see from the pictures to the right, the puppies are beginning to adventure into the world of soft food and water. Watching them navigate the litter-sized food bowl is always a cute scene.  During these weeks, the puppies start litter box training.  This ultimately helps our clients get a head start on house training by the time they head home.  With all the excitement, the puppies enjoy a "top off" from mom before settling in to another nap.

6 - 8 Weeks

At this stage puppies are establishing their personalities and mom is correcting any bad behaviors. Eating whole food and potty training are some of the most important skills they learn as we prepare these puppies to go to their forever homes. 

Although Bella is picture perfect as always, getting all ten of her puppies to stay in the wagon took some serious skill (and a fast shutter speed!).
