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.

Preggy Mama....Dixie update!

I wanted to give a Dixie Pregnancy update for all those waiting for a puppy this summer.   Dixie is doing well.  She is starting to get a roundish tummy. Now is the time when the puppies will start growing very quickly inside of her.  Dixie's shape will change rapidly in the next few weeks.

I got Dixie a new bed, so she could be extra comfy during her pregnancy.
Dixie had more morning sickness this time around than last time.    One morning several weeks ago, I fed Dixie her morning breakfast and after she ate she went right back to bed and didn't get up most of the day.  At that time I knew for sure that Dixie's pregnancy had taken.   Usually morning is the most energetic time of the day for a dog.  Dixie especially is anxious to run out in the yard and sniff around.  It was like that a lot of days.  Dixie was just very sleepy.  Her demeanour was less cheerful.  And she didn't feel like eating much.

But the past few weeks Dixie has improved so much.  Her energy, her appetite and her disposition have improved tremendously.  She is back to her old self ...but only for a brief time.  As she gets larger it will get more tiresome for her again!

Coco decided she likes Dixie's bed too!
I don't think most people stop to think about what a dog experiences during pregnancy.  Sometimes I feel like writing a book called, What to Expect When Your Dog is Expecting.  Because it seems to me, that a dog experiences so much of the same things that woman go through....and unlike us women...they can't talk about it!

 Now is the time that we will increase Dixie's food rations in order to accomodate the rapidly growing puppies.  Coco is happy about this....she loves to steal Dixie's kibble!
How can a pregnant dog get any rest with a puppy around?
