How does Safari Doodles raise puppies?
All our mother dogs give birth and raise their puppies inside the house. We believe to properly develop, each litter must live in the main part of the house and receive constant attention. To do this, we enlist Guardian Home raisers who keep the mother dog at their house until the puppies are weaned. Once weaned, the puppies come to the Safari Doodles ranch to get ready for their new homes. At the ranch we vaccinate/ deworm, the vet comes over to examine puppies, lots of play in the playroom, microchip, temperament test, groom, explore in the activity room, litter box potty train, get snuggles etc. We know that how your puppy is raised makes all the difference. Our goal is to enrich our puppies’ lives to ensure you get the very best raised puppy. Read more on How Safari Doodles Raises Puppies.
