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 Spring litters that are arriving in June. Now is a great time to get on the Waiting list.

Another Milestone --- Puppies first Solid Food!

Scarlet has her first lick of food.
Today the puppies are 23 days old (3.5 weeks) and we introduced the puppies to their first solid food.  It really was just a taste, as the puppies didn't quite know what to do with it.

We used canned Puppy Food, Nutro brand.  We put it on our fingers so they could lick it off, and become familiar with the taste and smell.
Ginger jumps right into the bowl, like she'd been waiting for dog food her whole life.

Peaches observes the action.
Taco wants to try out the food with his feet first.
Tigger thinks it best to lick the edge of the bowl.
Toffee and Scarlet have are happy to watch the others with food on their noses
Peaches got so excited, she started howling!
She sniffed a little of the food....
...And she started howling some more!
In the end, Toffee, Scarlet and Ginger decided they were more sleepy than hungry.

Most of the puppies did not know how to eat out of the bowl.  

Feeding pups for the first time is about as messy as feeding babies.  We don't have puppy highchairs, so we brought out the Plastic Kiddy Pool just for the occasion.  We will continue to use the kiddy pool for meal times at least until the puppies learn to stop walking in the food bowl!
