Puppy Culture

I got into to Puppy Culture via my friend Conny in the Netherlands, who purchased the Puppy Culture program a few years ago in anticipation of the birth and rearing of her puppies. Conny is one of those rare people who is prepared to go to the end of the earth to make sure everything regarding planning and rearing a litter is done as well as possible! Sadly her puppies never happened and Conny passed the PC training program on to me. I was blown away by the program and have been rearing my litter, now 5 weeks, with the help of PC, loving every minute of it. 

Puppy Culture is a wonderful resource for understanding puppy behavior and the importance of the birth - 12 weeks phase of life. The material is clearly presented and makes total sense. The good news is all of the streaming format films now have captioning in German. PC is rolling out German first - Dutch and French to follow soon.

5 weeks

Cannot believe the puppies are 5 weeks old today. The time is definitely going too fast. So much to do with them and so little time!





4 weeks

Pups are well into their 4 weeks. This week we started weaning but they still get an awful lot of milk from Tara. It's wonderful they had the chance to go outside for the first time, which they really enjoyed. 4 weeks is a busy week with lots of new experiences. They learn very fast.

Worthwhile reading

We have created a new page called "Further Reading", where links are placed to articles we find interesting and are appropriate to dog ownership Anno 2018. The first one we want to share is by Susanne Shelton entitled "Finding a Breeder".
