This room is where our puppies are born and were they spend the first few weeks with their mother (dam). Once they enter the weaning stage, they are provided opportunities to explore other parts of our home (with supervision and containment provided, of course). We believe that our dams deserve a safe, warm, and clean space to privately whelp and nurse their puppies so we take special care to ensure that this room is a special place for them to feel comfortable.
When our puppies are approx 9 weeks old, a veterinarian performs a health examination to assess the health of our puppies. Microchip insertion is also performed during this vet visit. The veterinarian also provides documentation of her assessment for each puppy, which we pass on to adoptive individuals/families on the day of pick-up.
