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.

Choose Your Veterinary -- Vaccine Schedule

It's only a few weeks before you bring your new puppy home.  So now is a good time to choose your veterinary.  A good place to start is word of mouth recommendations from  family and friends.  You also can do Google searches on some veterinaries and find ratings given by their customers.  Sometimes just dropping into the veterinary and talking to the staff at the front desk can give you a lot of information about the professionalism of the clinic.

I will take your puppy to see the veterinary when he is 7 1/2  weeks of age.  At that time, your puppy will be given an overall wellness check, a worming and  his first set of shots. 

Many people also like to bring their puppy to the veterinary within the first 2-3 days that they take their puppy home.  This would not be the time to administer shots....since the puppies are under stress the first several days.   But it is a good time to see that your puppy is adjusting well to his/her new home and also ask your veterinary any health questions you may have.

If you do not schedule a visit to the veterinary for a new puppy check, you should still make an appointment for his first shots from 11-12 weeks of age.  The sooner you complete the series of puppy inoculations, the sooner your puppy can go out in public.

Here is a typical Vaccination schedule for puppies.... (ncluded in your Puppy Information Packet)
