Breeding a puppy with passion and seriousness requires experience and knowledge of the breed.
Today, thanks to the Internet, everyone can be better informed about the aptitudes, characteristics and needs of this magnificent breed.
In spite of this, many people still inform themselves just before taking this step and start looking for the puppy at the best price, without having any clear idea of the important factors that make the real difference on the price.
A puppy will become your life companion for several years and it is important not to buy in a “closed box”.
Contact more breeders and make an appointment to see the parents (at least the mother) and check the hygienic conditions of the breeding and how the puppies are raised.
In the first three months important notions of life are acquired, first of all by the mother (but also by the father if present).
Puppies also go through an important phase, that of socialization, where the direct contact with their little brothers, adult dogs and animals of other species, represents an indispensable element so that, growing up, they can relate with everyone in a balanced way
Our puppies are sold complete with three vaccinations, therefore, it is possible to get it out from the first day of arrival in the new house.
The use of sanitary mats certainly represents a great comfort, especially for those who do not have a garden.
It is advisable, however, to accustom the puppy from his first arrival to do his needs outside, gratifying him with pampering or even some reward when he frees himself in the place we want.
It would be advisable to take him out as soon as he wakes up, after meals and immediately after the game. These, in fact, are the circumstances in which he feels the most incentive to free himself.
In general, the rule applies that, at least for the first few days, the more you take it out, the better it is.
If the temperature is really low, and you stay out for a long time, better protect our dog with a coat.
Remember that the poodle, not having under coat, is more sensitive to low temperatures and temperature excursions.
The coat of the poodle has a structure very similar to that of human hair, it can be washed quietly even every week/10 days if necessary.
Use a mild shampoo and a good conditioner to help grooming.
A constant weekly brushing, using a carder and a comb, should be enough to prevent the formation of annoying knots.
At the age of three months and at least until the age of six, you should offer three meals a day.
From the 6th month onwards, you can switch to two daily meals, which will have to be maintained for the rest of his / her life. Providing only one meal a day would encourage the onset of gastritis!
In the starter-kit provided by us, there is a package of the same feed used in breeding.
These are premium quality croquettes, which provide the puppy, in the few grams provided for each meal, all the nutritional elements he needs in this delicate period of growth.
It is advisable, if you decide to change brand or even type of feed, to do so gradually, increasing the dose of the new feed little by little each day, until its complete replacement, which must take place within a week.
It should be remembered that if you decide to feed the food prepared at home, it must contain all the important elements the puppy needs, completing it with the appropriate supplements and carefully balancing the ratio between carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins.
Used for the first time by the U.S. military to improve the evolution of dogs used for strategic and military purposes, it consists of neonatal sensory stimulation.
The puppies, from the third to the sixteenth day of life, are subjected through simple exercises to small stress, such as thermal, tactile and movement stimuli, aimed at stimulating the endocrine system, adrenal glands and pituitary gland.
The studies carried out on this subject show that puppies will be more resistant to cold and some diseases in adulthood, maturing faster, will be able to better solve some problems, will have a better heart rate, adrenal glands more robust, will show more tolerance to stress.
