Our Puppies

 

 

 

  When we whelp a litter of pups, they will be born and raised in our house.  Pictures will be posted each Sunday night. Pups will be registered with AKC and UKC, micro chipped and be current on all shots and worming, and have dew claws removed. They will also be introduced to water, retrieving, birds, whistles, and simulated gun fire. A written warranty (click here to see copy) will be provided along with written documentation of all shots and worming. Selection of pups begins around 6 weeks of age and goes in the order in which deposits are received.  Your new companion will go home with a started kit which includes a sample of the food your pup has been started, a bed and information on proper care.

Pictures and Video taken 8-19-12. Pup is working on retrieving both from side and as a walk up. See videos above pictures to see how the pup is progressing. At this rate, he will be a great hunting companion this fall. 

 

 

Above are pictures of pups from previous Hydro X Indy breeding.

Life for our puppies starts in our house in a specially built whelping pen. The pen is constructed of material that is easy to wash so that the puppies are in a clean environment. The floor of the pen is vented so that all waste from the puppies falls through and they will remain clean and dry. The pen also has a "pig rail" around the perimeter. The rail insures that the puppies are safe and will not accidentally get penned between mom and the wall. A brooding lamp is placed in the pen for warmth as the puppies require help in maintaining body heat in the first weeks of life. It is important to us that the puppy pen is clean and dry. This will make house breaking easier

 

    .
From day one the puppies are brought in from their "puppy room" to our living area to become familiar with the sounds, touch and smells of humans.  We love spending time with each pup and talk to and handle each one. We feel this is a very important part of their development. For this reason we never have more than one litter at a time. At this time we only have three breeding females so that we will have lots of time to devote to the puppies.        
Click here for a great article by Steve Snell on introducing your pup to gun fire.      
At 4 weeks of age we start to introduce the puppies to duck calls, a whistle, and gun shot blanks (at a distance). At 5 weeks, live birds are introduced. Although we know that all the pups we sell will not become gun dogs or compete in hunt tests or  field trails, we feel it is important to introduce these smells and sounds early so that it learns to get excited by this type of stimuli and not afraid. At this stage we also place a small puppy crate with the door removed in their whelping pen to encourage their natural urge to "den".  This also helps if you intend to use a crate for house breaking as they find comfort in nestling with each other inside it.
       
   
   
At six weeks of age the puppy's personality has become distinct and it is time for prospective new owners to select their new puppy. The selection process begins in the order in which deposits are received.  At 6 weeks of age, the puppies start going to their new homes if they are being transported by vehicle. However, if the pup is being transported by plane, it must wait until 8 weeks of age.

  

 

Most professional trainers believe that 49 days is the best time to start basic obedience training. Basic obedience commands consists of sit, come and fetch. Most important, always keep the sessions short and fun.  Leave the puppy wanting more. 

             
   
   
   

At Big Creek Labs we strive to offer pups that will make an all around good companion and hunting partner. It is our desire that your new puppy will grow into your life long companion.
