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.

Buying a Coco Puppy

As I looked over the weights for Coco's newborn puppies, I realized that most of the puppy weights are currently in the Tiny Toy (4-6 lbs) size range.  Birth weights cannot be used to predict adult weight.  But they can be an early indicator.

I was not breeding for Tiny Toy puppies, but the genes are in the back ground of both parents.  So it is always a possibility. Coco was the largest puppy in her litter.  She had two brothers who were 'tea cup size'.  And small genes run in the lineage of both parents of this litter.  

I will be especially attentive to to watch the rate of growth of each puppy over the next few weeks.  By charting the weight gain, I can get a better idea of how big these puppies will get. 

Toy puppies should gain a half ounce per day until four weeks of age.  When they are born at a weight over 4 oz. they do not need special supplementation for feeding.   Miniature puppies on the other hand should gain an ounce per day.

In the past, it was my practice to take first payments on puppies when they were born.  But since we do not have a good idea of the size of these puppies, I will wait until 4-5 weeks to sell this litter.

During this first week, I will talk with each person at the beginning of the Priority Waiting list, to find out who is ready for a puppy, their color and size preference.  At 4-5 weeks I will contact each person to give them the opportunity to purchase a puppy and they will send payment for half down of the purchase price at that time.

If for any reason there are any puppies that are not purchased by the people currently on the Priority Waiting list, I will post the puppy on the blog to make him available to new blog readers.
