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.

Yum Yum! First solid food .....Weaning begins

A new milestone is here!  The puppies are now 4 weeks old and ready to eat solid food.  They are eating 3-4 small meals per day of mushy puppy food.

The puppies are definitely ready for their first puppy food meal.  They had no hesitation to dig right in.  It was as if they had been eating solids all their life.   I am feeding them puppy food that has been mushed in the blender with warm water to make a creamy consistency that is easy to lap up.  The puppies still do not have any teeth.   And they are using to drinking.  So I have to start with a food close to the consistency of gruel and gradually increase the texture over the next few weeks.

Misty is still nursing the puppies several times a day, but the time spent nursing is less and less.   As I increase the puppies food, I decrease Misty's food.  By decreasing the Mamas food, her milk will also decrease.  Weaning is a gradual process that will happen over the next 3-4 weeks.
