Sorry for the lack of posts recently, we have been so busy here I have not been able to get to the computer. The Dutch Shepherd Puppies have had their third round of shots now! They are all active, full of energy, playful, and getting big! There are three female Dutch Shepherd Puppies still available! We have posted, on our Facebook page, each of them chasing a tennis ball on a string. There is interest in the remaining three so do not hesitate contacting us if you are wanting a pup from this breeding! I have heard that the purple and yellow collar pups are doing great in their obedience training already! We expect all these pups to excel in training!
The Dutch Shepherd Puppies are now 12 weeks old. Two went to Chicago, one went to Texas, and one will go to Ohio at the end of this month. So what are the remaining pups doing? Well they continue to be exposed to new sights, sounds, and experiences. The pups get out individually and together to play. The only male is going to stay here at Impact K9 USA, so that leaves three females still available. We have yet to think of a name for the male. If anyone has any ideas on a name, feel free to comment here! We are looking for a name from where the breed originated, the Netherlands, with meaning.
As I mentioned before, we have three female Dutch Shepherd puppies available! If you'd like any pictures or video taken of a certain pup, please let us know! We'd be more than happy to do so.
Week 8 is a big week! The puppies are now ready to go to their new homes! By now they are eating dry food three times a day and have had their first round of shots and worming. We continue to get them out together and individually so they get use to being away from their litter mates. We play with the puppies daily and try to bring out their natural drives. They are very active and playful! We continue to put the puppies inside at night and out during the day. This has been the life of a puppy at Impact K9 USA up to 8 weeks old.

Weeks 5-7 is a crucial time for the pups developing brain. The pups are the most curious during these weeks so we continue to introduce new sights and sounds. We get the dam away from the pups more and increase supplementing the pups. We start putting puppy food in the goats milk to wean the pups. The pups are outside more during the day and put inside at night. The pups have toys to play with and play tug a war with each other. Each pup is removed from the litter to play and work with alone. This week starts the time period to make a well balanced dog! By the end of week 6 the pups are weaned and eating soaked puppy food. Around week 7 or 8 the pups get their first round of shots and worming.
Week 8 to follow.
We only have 3 female Dutch Shepherd Puppies available now, so don't wait if you are looking for a great puppy!
Week 4 we start getting the puppies out in the grass and in a puppy pen. We also start getting the dam out and away from the pups to prepare for the weaning process. Around weeks 3 or 4 we start supplementing the pups with goats milk. We use goats milk because the pups stomachs can not process cows milk. The pups have been getting the tips of their nails clipped to get them use to this feeling and to help the dam be more comfortable while they nurse. The pups are handled more and more each day. They are introduced to toys and playing. We continue to show them lots of love and continue the early neurological stimulation program. Week 5 to follow.
We still have 4 female Dutch Shepherd Puppies for sale but may have only 3 after this weekend! Do not wait if you want a Dutch Shepherd Puppy from this breeding!
Sorry for the delay on this post. We were having troubles with our blog and posting but everything is back up and running.
In week 3 the puppies eyes are starting to open now! The pups are also starting to be able to hear sounds for the first time. This is the time we start to introduce new sights and sounds to the pups. During this week the pups start to develop their pack drive. He/she learns to recognize the Dam and litter mates and how he/she fits into the pack. They start moving around a lot more in the whelping box. We continue to weigh the pups and perform the early neurological stimulation on each of them. Week 4 to follow!
We only have 4 female Dutch Shepherd puppies available! They wont last long so contact us if your interested!
