I believe the little things I do now make a big difference throughout the lifetime of your companion. The puppies were born and raised inside our home and will start their formal house training. I handle the pups multiple times a day so they will be well socialized by the time they arrive at your home. I start working with basic commands like sit, kennel, off, ah-ah (no) and come. I will have socialized them around children and other animals, like other adult dogs (both large and small) and cats before arriving at your home.
