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.

The stages of Labor

Here are the signs I am looking for as Dixie progresses through her labor.  I suspect she is currently in Stage 1 labor....but this can last for several days.

Stage 1
• Temperature will drop to 98 degrees or so...
• Eyes will dilate
• She will stare at you and want you near
• Refusal to eat
• Hide under your bed or a dark place
• Laying on her side but can't seem to get comfortable
• Mucus Discharge

Stage 2 - Pre-Labor
• Digging
• Shivering
• Panting
• Staring at her rear end
• Licking vulva excessively
• Mild Uterine Contractions

Stage 3 - Labor
• Hard Uterine Contractions
• Extreme Shivering
• Water Breaking
• Grunting and pushing
• Visible sign of the First pup and delivery (Whelp)
