CAN WE VISIT THE PUPPIES
There is something about new life that draws people. We get many requests
from families wanting to come visit the puppies and that isn't surprising.
Who doesn't want to touch and hold a cuddly newborn puppy.
We understand the desire to hold a new puppy completely but in the interest
of safety for our puppies we have a no visitation policy in effect to protect
those precious little lives in
Safety of the Puppies Immature immune system.
Puppies are not protected against disease that can be brought in on shoes or
clothing. Many breeders have lost entire litters of puppies due to disease,
unknowingly, being brought into the breeders home. You don't have to touch a
puppy to transfer disease to them. It can be transferred from your shoes or
clothing to the floor or furniture only to be transferred to the paws or body
of the mama, who then transfers it to her litter.
New mama Yorkies are extremely protective of her babies. When strangers
are in the home, even if mama is in another part of the house, she hears
unfamiliar sounds and kicks into a highly emotional, protective state. This
stress causes her body to create cortisol, and it in turn enters her milk. The
puppies then consume the milk and become stressed as well. A stressed
puppy is likely to succumb to hypoglycemia,
illness or fail to thrive.
Stressed mamas panic and then are likely to step on or crush one of the
Our mamas and their babies are accustomed to a structured routine. Regular
feeding times, nap times, and play times. Our puppies do not go to their Vet
for immunization until they are at lease 8 weeks old. They are on a worming
schedule and puppy pad trained. Their mama schedules her time for feeding,
playing and socializing her babies. I spend time with them daily to show them
human love and care.
And lastly, inviting perfect strangers into the home is not only a personal
safety risk but compromises our home environment. We live in the country
and dont have close neighbors. Thanks so much for your understanding
