Moon River Goldens live in our home. Couples for breeding are selected and bred based on health and characteristics. We carefully maintain the health of our "parents" and make sure to limit very carefully the litters of females in particular. Puppies are born in our home, in fact kept in custom built whelping boxes in our bedroom. They get attention from us, close friends, their parents and other excellent dogs in our family that are good raising small dogs.
At around 3 to 4 weeks, we move the puppies to a larger area with interactive toys, a litter box, plastic and wire crates etc. to stimulate learning. Their toys are graduated to provide more stimulation. They are surrounded by everyday noises, like vacuums, TV, music, children and other common household activities. Puppies are taken outside to potty in the morning and several other times during the day (weather permitting). This allows housebreaking to begin. While inside the home they are trained to use trays with grates that include potty pads. They learn that there is a proper place to do their "business", and will go to that place to relieve themselves. Weather permitting, the pups go outside at 4 to 5 weeks of age for fresh air, sunshine, a baby pool and supervised play time in their own area of the yard.
Before going to their new homes, our "babies" are given the best nutrition available, vet care and lots of love and socialization with children and adults.
