 Misleading statements focusing on the microbiological threat of raw dog food by influential groups such as the AVMA inadvertently push people toward the ultra-processed dry foods, whose threat level is never discussed by these groups, let alone checked. As our vets remain oblivious to the threat, both pets and people are going to continue to get sick.    Dry pet food has contributed to the deaths of thousands and thousands of pets in the last decades. This is compared to a tiny handful on fresh/raw dog food, with most stemming from people feeding poorly balanced meals to their pets. No pre-made raw food to date is documented to have killed a single pet.    Fresh fruit and vegetables are the top causes of Salmonella, E. coli and Listeria in humans, not meat. This is not a reason to exclude such food items from your diet. It is a warning that you need to clean up the food chain and take some simple precautions.

 Saying goodbye to our puppies is always a sad thing, 😟

But making someone else happy  is always good. 😄




Puppies placed into their New Homes at 8 Weeks vs 12 Weeks

Puppies leaving Breeder's Home/ Mother/Litter at 8 weeks vs 12 weeks of age.

Occasionally puppy buyers are questioning the leaving of a desired puppy age 8 weeks vs 12 weeks.
Here my personal opinion, observation and experience in my 12 years of Papillon breeding, concerning this subject.

Between somewhat 3 and 6 weeks puppies learn to get to know each other, and socialize with each other. From 4 weeks on they are getting to be "little dogs" they learn how to be a dog by playing, catching, roughing up each other, learning dominance and submission.
Mom shows much less interest in them and leaves them alone a good amount of time, but not forgetting to return to have the milk bar available.
Puppies start also on slurry meals besides mom's milk, if still available (most do, some don't) at 4 weeks of age.

Puppies from 6 weeks to 14 weeks start socializing with people. They are ready to learn.
This is the time where they learn to fit into their environment, where they bond.
And as more those puppies get socialized in all aspects from car driving to meeting other people, places, as better these puppies will be for the rest of their lives.

So ask yourself: why should the puppy, you possibly desire first become attached or bond to the breeder? The home of the breeder? the daily chores, other dogs (Paps) and then being ripped away from that already processed environment to start all over again.

At 8 weeks to my experience is an absolute perfect time to let a puppy go to their new home to be loved, taught, and pampered by the what should be forever family.
 You, as the new family, owner will have 6 weeks of time to shape your new friend's life, to fit him/her into your life style the way you would like.
