Ezra Rhodesian Ridgebacks is a proud Preservation Breeder with purposefully bred purebred dogs that are intentionally bred for predictability. My focus is on preserving Breed type, health and temperament by clever population management.
As a Preservation breeder I carefully screen potential puppy-buyers and will, if called upon, take dogs back at any stage of life.
Everybody that breeds purebred dogs wants them to be happy, healthy, and long-lived. I as a Preservation Breeder also want to protect and preserve dog breeds for future generations, to use their amazing abilities to work for us and of course for companionship. This is the essence of preservation breeding.
On day 3 I begin Avidog"s Early Neurological Stimulation & Scent Introduction protocol.
This is 16 day set of ENS Exercises as well as choosing ESI objects (my puppies reacted positively and strongly to lavender and my gum.... negatively but strongly to oregano) Natural items, spices, feathers, fur, etc.
They also have dew claws removed and have their first check up by DVM Heather at Blue Lake Animal Hospital.
Week 2 Potty training begins using a grass matts in their whelping box.
Week 3 Socialization with my dog family pack, farm friends (horses, cats, etc ), and human friends is key to a confident puppies future success.
Week 4 I introduce the great outdoors to begin potty training and I start practicing stacking.
Week 5 I offer chew bones, different foods, and NuVet Vitamins.
Week 6 Everyone piles into the car for their first of many rides and a trip to DVM Heather for first shots and a check over .
Week 7 My goal as a breeder is so every puppy goes home well socialized, confident, eager to begin a fun new life with their new family. I spend this week doing as much as I can to prepare them for this.
Week 8 Families come and receive their new family member!!!!
I breed 1st for myself. If there is a puppy I think will fit into my life I get 1st choice.
Next in line come homes that have put a deposit down. They go in the order of the date when the deposit was received. First come, first served. Forbid it happen ... BUT...If there are not enough puppies to go around those who don't get a puppy from the litter on the ground, will be first on the waiting list for the next litter!
I put great time and effort into assessing each puppies individual personality and potential! If possible I relish new owners visiting my home and meeting Mom, Dad, and the Litter. This way we may evaluate which puppy will best fit in your home and expectations. If there is an individual who wishes to show or compete I will equate that into the situation as well.
