A lot of thought and care goes into the puppies we produce. The main focus of the breeding program is on health and temperament of the breeding pair. Both Sire and Dam will have Excellent or Good hips. All of their parentage will have known health clearance certificates. In this manner the puppies produced will not carry any known health issues of our breed.
Puppy placement is taken very seriously. We don't offer them as "first come, first serve". We match puppies to their families. We do the best we can at choosing the best puppy for each family. We do this by getting to know the potential families, watching the puppies from birth and temperament testing. All prospective homes are pre-screened through the Puppy Questionnaire, visiting, and phone calls. Puppies are placed into your care based on your home, lifestyle, and the puppy's temperament. Only owners that are willing to spend a lifetime having fun with an outgoing energetic companion will be considered for a Caladesi puppy.
Puppies are raised to their fullest potential by weekly milestones during their short 8 weeks here at Caladesi.
Human contact, brain and senses stimulation starts their first week.
Starts their grooming added to the already, holding, touching and senses awareness as their eye are opening.
