GUARDIANSHIP & SOCIALIZATION
- Predator Load: We have a very heavy predator load, including foxes, coyotes, bears, cougars, hawks, owls, raccoons, opposums, etc.
- Farm Animal Exposure: Puppies are moved outside at 3 weeks old. They begin mingling with our chickens, turkeys, guineas, cattle, goats, and adult guardian dogs shortly after they are moved outside.
- Socialization: Puppies are born inside and handled daily, so they are very well socialized. Once they move outside, they are socialized with our animals, but still play with our children as well.
- Diet: Mama's milk, raw cow or goat milk (when available), raw eggs, raw meat, 4Health Beef and Chicken Formula canned food, and 4Health Original Formula puppy kibble.
- Health Approach: Puppies are raised with minimal toxic exposure to encourage optimal, healthy development.
- Vet Exam: Puppies will receive a thorough health exam by our holistic vet between 6 and 8 weeks of age to ensure they are healthy before they go to their new homes.
- Deworming: Puppies will receive a low-toxic dewormer at10, 20, 30, 40 & 50 days or as otherwise advised by our holistic vet based on their exam.
- Vaccinations: Our puppies receive no vaccations before they go to their new homes, as vaccinations give a very high toxic exposure for developing puppies to manage. We believe the new owners should make the decisions about what, if any vaccines, are given to their puppy. We recommend that owners only vaccinate with what is required by law. In Virginia, this is the rabies vaccine and it is not required until 4 months old. We also recommend that you ask your vet for a thimersol-free (mercury-free) rabies vaccine. Please always request any titers that are available for any vaccine your puppy receives before allowing boosters to be given. Very often, boosters are completely unecessary when titers are checked.
