don't have the time or safe enough horses to do them anymore.

|Starting Crate training -
For $100,(Hank or Grayson (who work here
and live in our guest house) will bring your
pup in the house and get it used to a crate for
a week before you take it home. This helps
reduce the stress of the first couple nights.
|Picking Order- This is all the information I
have on who is above you on the picking list. If
litters have not been born yet, or have not been
checked out by the vet to make sure they are
healthy, I have no idea how many are going to be
available when it is your turn to pick. You can get
an idea by seeing how many pups each dog has and
looking at where you stand on this list. The rest is up
to mother nature.
|Recommendations and Favorites
|Many people think that shaving your
golden's coat makes them
cooler......Since they do not sweat like
us, this is not true. Here is a good
article about why ....
|*Pro plan large puppy food
*Food Bowls (plastic can turn their nose pink)
*Collar. Puppies wear around 10-12" at 6-8
weeks. Adult Goldens usually wear 20- 22"
*ID Tag -very inexpensive insurance
*Leash -Slip style leads are good for trained
dogs and knowlegable dog handlers, not to be
handed to child to drag a puppy around
*Crate- When used properly, a crate makes potty
training easier and teaches your puppy to hold it. Small
size will last til they are about 3 mo old, so get a medium
if you want to use it longer. If you want one to use forever,
get the large
BED - You do not want a bed that the puppy can chew
up and choke on. No Strings.
* -a must for cleaning up messes
* - to prevent chewing
*TOYS -Kong is most durable.- A must to keep
puppy from eating your house during teething
Smart Pet Love Snuggle Puppy -has warmth and
heartbeat to make puppy feel less lonely in crate
*Puppy Shampoo - (I like oatmeal based
shampoo for my older dogs)
*Toe nail clippers
*Hot Spots - Anything that itches can cause
hot spots. It is important to stop the itching as
soon as possible because they can get worse
quick.. You may need antibiotics from the vet but
this helps until you get there.
* Vet products and knowlegable answers on
how to use them, Call:
|Heartworm and Flea Meds- I rotate
mine. Ask about this if you want to know why
All Natural Flea and Tick control for
(Not good for them to inhale).
Brewers Yeast - .For places without a big
flea problem (and during cold months of the
year), or with pregnant dogs, can use Brewers
Yeast, to repell fleas. Never give it to nursing
Moms because it makes their milk taste bad.
|Shedding -Goldens shed and a simple quick daily
brushing gets the hair on the brush instead of your
furniture. If you totally can't handle shedding, you
can use a shedding formula, but you need to take
them off it in the spring so they can blow their coat.
|Barking- Tell them to hush and then spray
this....Doesn't need to be close, it can help
with most barkers...(even if it is your
|NuVet is a daily treat that they LOVE and is
critical to protecting them while leaving mom
and litter mates and for a LONG- HEALTHY life.
Nuvet also has an awesome puppy shampoo
and ear cleaner
|Trainers: Before signing up with a trainer, get references or watch demos.
Look for trainers who use positive reinforcement. Good trainers will have
happy dogs who are working because they want to, not because they are being
forced into it. Training should be building a positive understanding between
you and your dog. Sending your dog to a trainer without learning yourself, is like
teaching them in Russian and never learning the language.
These are the local trainers that I use and who will come to your house to do in

|Raising Puppies is like raising kids, there are different ways to do things.
These are just things that work for me.
Since flies lay their eggs in poop, having animals
usually means having flies. We use 2 products to
control Flies around here.
Fly Preditors are little bugs that eat fly eggs and are very
small nonintrucive little bugs. They are shipped in the
egg form to your door
You can also keep your poop barrels open to attract all
the local flies and then spray it with this
Safe Fly Spray
|K9data.com - This website
has made it so much easier for
breeders and pet buyers to
research bloodlines and health
clearances. All breeds should
have something like this. I believe
it is why our breed is getting a
handle on some of the health
issues that used to be so
unavoidable in the breed.

|How Much do I feed my Dog or Puppy?
Everyone wants to know the exact amount to feed
their dog or puppy, but since everyone has different
metabolisms and exercise routines, there is no "one
size fits all" diet. If you want to know how much to
feed your dog, look at their weight. If they do not
have a waste, they are too fat, cut them back slowly
until their waste comes back. If their ribs and
backbone are sticking out, they are too thin. Give
them more. It has nothing to do with what your other
dog eats or what your neighbor's dog eats; It is what
your dog eats and what they look like. It is better for
your dog's joints and their health in general, to keep
them on the thinner side, but not skinny. If they are
too fat, you are to blame.
|Ear infections - The vet has a new product that
is a 2 time dose! Ask about it!
|I do not remove dew claws. Here is a
good video on why.
|A Crate will help with potty training and keep your
puppy safe when you can't be there. If overused it
will backfire and potty training will be a disaster.
