Helpful tips and suggestions

 

Rest Periods 

Puppies need frequent rest periods to replenish their energy level. 15-30 minutes of

play time is long enough. Offer a little food & water, then in the playpen or crate for a nap.

This is important for prevention of Hypoglycemia.

Feedings

Puppies should be offered food every 3 to 4 hours. However, we recommend keeping

food available at all times with plenty of fresh water at room temperature. We recommend

softened food (soak hard puppy food in water till softened) till 10 weeks of age at which

time introducing un-softened food along side softened food and gradually phasing out the

softened.

Warmth 

Puppies get cold easy. If the outdoor temperature is 40F degree’s or less they can only

withstand these conditions for a few minutes.

Maintenance

Poodles are high maintenance dogs. They require a haircut every 6 - 8 weeks. It is

recommended that poodles are brushed daily and bathed weekly or as often as

needed if the right formula of shampoo is used. Ear care is very important in the

poodle breed. They have hair that grows inside the ear that has to be removed

periodically to keep from causing infections. It is easily done and we can tell you or

show you how. If you would rather not be responsible for this care, your groomer or vet

can do this for you. Nails should be clipped every couple of weeks.

Most Important

Enjoy your puppy! Accidents will happen (remember you had accidents at their age too).

Ounce of prevention will save a emergency trip to the vet. Puppies are like babies, very

inquisitive, mischievous, and desire to explore. Plenty of puppy approved chew toys will

save your shoes, socks, electrical cords etc…
