Puppy Page

This page will be updated frequently with puppy news, adoption info and puppy parent resources.

*If you are interested in a puppy, please call or email to be put on a wait list. As soon as pregnancy is confirmed, we will send out adoption applications and take deposits in order of the wait list. Puppies from this litter will be due the middle of May, with a take home date of mid-late July.

PUPPY PARENTING

So, you are thinking about getting a puppy? Whether this is your first or 5th puppy, there is always room to learn. I strongly believe in using positive reinforcement training methods to create a solid bond and consistent environment for your new family member. Click on any of the titles below to get started:

Before You Get Your Puppy

Clicker Training

If you live in the Portland area, we are lucky enough to have an amazing training facility dedicated to all things “puppy” check out their website Wonder Puppy It is very important that any puppy adopted from me attend a puppy class and this is the one we recommend. I can recommend others if you live in another area.

NUTRITION

Storm has been fed a mostly raw diet combined with Acana brand kibble. Darwin’s Natural Pet Food is a great place to purchase raw food and they deliver to your home! Here is a great site to learn more about pet nutrition B Naturals

DOG SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES

Our goal is to breed great family dogs with easy going temperaments but we also hope that families will pursue activities for their dogs that will enrich their lives while providing exercise for their minds and bodies. Portland is FULL of wonderful dog activities. Storm has enjoyed training for agility, hunt tests, rally and therapy work. Here are just a few to get you started:

Everything Canine (offers agility, obedience, nosework, fly ball, etc)

Dock Dogs (water, retrieving and jumping! what more could a lab want?)

Therapy Dog International (visit hospitals, nursing homes, schools, etc)

Flyball (involves running, small jumps and retrieving tennis balls)
