Welcome to Our Puppy Blog!

Welcome to our blog! I am a small hobby breeder of Schnoodle puppies. My Schnoodles are a cross of the White Schnauzer with a Red Poodle. These dogs do not shed, are great for allergy sufferers, are friendly and easily trained.

We have 4 breeding females and sell our puppies face to face as required by APHIS rules for hobby breeders.

Our breeding dogs are from purebred Akc lines and the Schnoodle puppies are registered with ICA (the registry for Designer breed dogs.)

They will be vet checked, have their first set of shots, and be Ugodog Puppy Toilet Trained. But this is just the beginning! Read through our posts to see the special care and attention we give our litter. You will enjoy watching our Growing Puppies!

We sell our puppies through our Waiting list. We do not post them on the blog for purchase. If you wish to be contacted with updates on the next litter email me at GrowingPuppies@gmail.com

Update: We are so excited for our winter puppies. I also hope for a litter in Summer 2018.

One week to the due date!

Look how much rounder Dixie has become.  Her belly is really dropping low.   I could feel the little puppies moving around when I placed my hand on her tummy today!  Her trim waste line has completely disappeared!  The girl is looking rather uncomfortable.

I got the whelping box out today, and put some towels, and newspaper in the box.  I will have her start sleeping in the box from now on, so she will get use to the fact that this is where she will deliver her litter.

Her due date is March 11, but she has always delivered 2-3 days early so keep an eye on the blog especially from March 8th on.  Additionally she begins delivering pups in the evening and through the night.  If I have some signs that she is nesting, I will let you know.  Nesting is an indication that delivery is within 24hs.

So what is nesting?  Well, the Mom starts acting differently.  Last time, she was scratching and scratching at her bed and circling around like she couldn't get comfortable.   She asks to go outside over and over all day, as if she needs to potty, but she comes right back in and then needs to go out again. She also won't eat the day of her whelping.  Last year, she had pulled her blanket out of her bed and scrunched the whole thing into her dog dish!  Very strange! 

Beginning this weekend, Dixie will not be allowed to roam freely about, but I will keep her confined to an area where I can keep my eye on her.  I'll never forget how with our first litter, I told my teenager to keep a close eye on Dixie because she looked like she would be whelping soon.  My teenager forgot, and when I told her to find Dixie, she came back with news that a puppy was found in a dress on her bedroom floor!  Oh well, a little mess, but no tragedies.  We just won't cause ourselves extra work, this time around!
