When our Standard Poodle puppies are born they are individually identified with a small bit of different colors of nail polish, applied to the rump for the males and between the shoulders for the females. We have found in the past 25 years this to be the safest method of identifying our babies. In the past we have tried using, yarn which could be ingested and cause a blockage in the puppy. We tried the litter collars and puppy’s feet would get hung up in them. The litter collars would also sometimes get hung on a bucket hanger or even around their mom’s hair choking them. This polish color stays with the puppy for its entire time here at FAMILY AFFAIR STANDARD POODLES and used for identification on the Website.
From the day they are born and for the first three weeks, all our Standard Poodle puppies are weighed every day. This process lets us know that each puppy is healthy, because a puppy should gain weight every day at this young age. If there is any weight loss, it is a warning that something could be wrong. If anyone loses weight or is not gaining at the rate they should, we step in and hand nurse and/or bottle feed them. Starting at three weeks of age, our babies have Purina Pro Plan All Ages Sport available twenty-four hours a day. Every other day, we feed the four to eight week old puppies an appetizing mix of chicken broth and kibble. Any puppy slow to dive into this tempting treat is weighed and examined and watched closely for several days. The first sign of a puppy not feeling well, is a loss of appetite.
Our Standard Poodle puppies are well socialized and are exposed to horses, four wheelers, golf cart rides, car rides and more. They have had their faces and tails trimmed, nails clipped and ears cleaned multiple times before they reach seven weeks. We use the Dr. Carmen Battaglia BIO SENSOR PROGRAM on our Standard Poodle puppies. It was developed by the military and featured in an article in the May 1995 issue of the AKC Gazette. Starting at five weeks and continuing through six weeks we also have a SEVEN STEP SOCIALIZATION PROGRAM. We found this Seven Step Socialization Program on the website of Kingridge Kennels who are breeders of Labrador Retrievers. We felt this was a very encompassing socialization program and soon incorporated it into our program.
We start the house breaking process with our climate controlled indoor/outdoor facility. Our Standard Poodle puppies are accustomed to being inside in a smaller climate-controlled area at night and have access to the outside and a large grassy yard and play area all day by the use of a doggie door.
