Service Dog Puppies

The puppies born here and are under 24 hour watch for the first 3 days. At 3 days old each pup is fed a very small quantity of goat’s milk with a bottle, along with all of the mother’s milk they can manage. In the course of bottle feeding the pups are handled and weighed regularly. Once they start solid food, each pup is given their own dish and are NEVER allowed to push and shove for food. Food aggression is not allowed! Spoon feeding is done in the group to learn name and manners.

Once the pups can get over a 12’ high barrier they are moved to the heated puppy house where they have access to the outdoors. Once they can climb over an 18” high barrier, they can come and go from the puppy pasture which is a wooded ¼ acre on a hillside.

Volunteer “puppy sitters” take the pups daily to various areas of the farm in a specially built “puppy school bus” As they get stronger they march down to puppy hill with mom. Any discipline of the puppies is usually left up to the mother dog.
