An eventful week for our Puppies!!!

It was an very exciting week for our puppies! While last week they learned the (very!) basics in walking on leash in the street of our neighborhood - this week they had the first 2 big excursions:

Shooting Range

There is a big Shooting Range close to us. It is middle in the woods. So all our puppies learn at this way, shooting means nothing! Only: Running around and have fun!

Next week we will repeat this lesson again!

Puppy Playground

For the first time in their life, they have seen the puppy playground. It was closed for the public, only our dogs where allowed to enter this day! So they had a lot of new experience, seen, smelling things - and many things to explore!

What´s planned next?

  • Trip to Vienna, riding on the Tube, going into a coffee
  • visiting our local Pet-Store

When our puppies leave, they are well prepared for the new, big world out there! We try to show and teach them as much as possible, that, when they go out there, they will easily get along with new situations.

Still two fawn boys are looking for the home of their life. If you wanna have an active and faithful friend for many a years, pls. contact us

March 2018

Hooray - our first snow!!!

March 2018

The pups are now 4 weeks old and looking forward to play with some visitors!
