Where puppies are born
Our kennel is our home. The house where we shake a little and where we breed our puppies. Although we do not miss the space outside, we are convinced that the puppies must be born in the house. The mother doesn\’t feel lonely and is constantly followed even at night.
Even before the puppies start to feel and see us we are there to handle them and do exercises that help him in the development.

Puppies accustomed to seeing people and receiving cuddles helps him not to live with fear the presence of man. Inside the litter we often notice a slightly scariest little puppy. It\’s a small room! Leaving him in an abandoned box to his fears would be devastating to him. Our puppies that go to the city can live with some anxiety the first experiences with the noise of city traffic, but also that is soon exceeded.
