Puppies at our home
Visit also Current litter page
|The whole 4 of our adult
rottweilers live together with us, inside the house. Of
course, our puppies are raised at home as well. About 1-2
weeks before puppies birth we prepair a room (the one
which is next to my bedroom). In this room it is placed
specially constructed, spacious wooden box. Its
construction provides the mum with high comfort and on
the other hand it protects puppies from being crushed to
In the 2nd day of our puppies' life we tie each of them a ribbon of a different colour. Thanks to this we can individualy observe development of each puppy. From the very beginning the little ones are weighed regularly and in this way we check whether they gain on weight evenly.
During the whole period of growth at our home, puppies are regularly controlled by our dogs' vet. When they move to their new owners, each of them is 2 x vaccinated and 3 x dewormed. And of course they are all equipped with International Health Books. Our puppies are not docked any more since 2003 - they have natural tails. At the 6th week of puppies' life the litter's inspection from our Kennel Club takes place, during which all the puppies are tattooed and on the basis of this inspection birth certificates can be issued. It is done by a FCI rottweiler judge.
|We pay lots of attention to
socialization of the puppies. They are raised from their
birth till moving to their new homes in the room right
next to my bedroom. Almost 24 h there is someone of us
with them. We often turn on TV or radio in their room, so
that they could get used to different sounds. When our
puppies get self-reliant enough (about 4th week of life),
they are taken to other rooms and if the weather is fine
also to the garden. During the whole period of
development at our home, the puppies meet not only their
mother, but also our adult dogs. Moreover, they can meet
other people - guests who are visiting us (obviously with
maintaining of hygiene rules). We do our best to "broaden
their minds" from the very beginning. This gives
solid basis for the further development of our puppies in
their new families.
Our dogs (adults and puppies) are mainly fed with dry complete food of premium class. Each puppy is provided with a special pack containing food for the first days at new home. Our puppies are also introduced with minced beef and white cottage cheese.
When the puppies are 8 weeks of age they can move to their owners. They are also equipped with the full set of documents containing all the info on their parents and their further background.
Our puppies are sold to different countries. However, we do not send our puppies alone by plane. We have to meet future owners of "Marstal" puppies who visit us and come personally to take their new family member.
It is important to us to stay in touch with owners of "Marstal" puppies. We are always willing to help them and reply to all the questions. We are pleased to get pictures of our puppies growing up and hear news about them (and also promote their wins and other success).
