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.

Preventing Injury with a puppy

 A small dog has very delicate legs as their bones are developing.  Please be careful not to allow your puppy to jump off of the furniture or other high objects.  In addition to leg injury, the small dog may develop what is known as an "acquired" umbilical hernia.  These usually go away by the time a puppy is 6 months old, but it truly is an injury that could be prevented by not allowing your puppy to jump or fall from the furniture.

Please be extra cautious of young children with small puppies.  It is so easy for them to drop a puppy or accidentally step on one.  Children must be monitored with dogs at all times.  If you are unable to supervise the children and or puppy, please put the puppy in his crate, or in a safe room.   That is what I did when I had a small puppy and a toddler.....I only let the puppy run around the house when I was able to supervise him.  It is the same with my litter of puppies today.   The puppies are only taken out of their pen when I am able to supervise them.  My toddler has also learned that he can only hold a puppy when he is sitting down, with Mom right next to him.   

When my dogs grew up to adults, they were able to have full run of the house.  By that time, the kids knew how to treat them respectfully...and the dogs had learned to tolerate the sometimes loud and rambunctious kid behavior.   But I am not so carefree with visiting children.   If I have any doubt as to how the visiting kids will treat my dogs, I either put the dogs in a crate...or I supervise the interaction of the dogs with the visiting children.
