HouseBreaking with a Backup Plan


Click Here to watch updated VIDEO of the new Grate/Crate model



The puppy learns to go OUTSIDE & use the grate
when you are Not available to let it out the door.

Take 10 minutes to watch the video on grate/crate method of kenneling.  It is a back up plan for going potty for the times you can not let your puppy outside or miss its signal.  It works great with teaching the puppy to go outside and it is not confusing to the puppy. 

All the puppies are started with this method and you just continue the training.  When you come to visit I will show you my methods of training...it makes housebreaking easy and keeps your home clean. 

There is alot of false information on the internet about certain breeds are hard to housebreak.  The key is knowing HOW to Housebreak. This is one of the many things I teach you. 

Most of my customers have the task completed in 3 weeks, some have it done in 3 days & a few of my customers never get the job done due to not following through.

Puppies are usually
ready at
8-9 weeks of age. 
Depending on litter size and how soon they start eating dry food...
in others words when the puppies are weaned by the mother. 

One of the ways the immune system is built up is through mother's milk and it is one of the many reasons I have healthy puppies.

 We reserve the right to decline the sale/adoption of a puppy, should it appear that it may not be beneficial to both the puppy & family.

BICHON 
 
 
Bichon Frise is pronounced Bee-Shawn Freeze-A. 

ADVANTAGES:
loves children and animals
companion
adores human company
affectionate
hardy
playful
even-tempered
suitable for city (with regular walks)
or country living 
shadow dogs - keeps track of you
NOT yappy, stand-offish, nervous or aggressive

Bichons have golden retriever traits, love the playtime of fetching and retrieving a ball 
but are in a small package without the shedding or hunting desire

disadvantage:
is that they require a little grooming.

Bichons dry quickly & are the easiest of all the breeds I have ever groomed.
Learning to groom your dog yourself isn't difficult.  
See Video


Bichons do not need to know everything that is going on...if the door bell rings they look at you and say do you have that...is it anybody to visit me...Ok...I'll be over here playing with my toys.  

Bichons are white but may have a slight hue of buff, cream or apricot...usually on their ears.  Bichons are born with pink noses...they turn black with age.

If the door bell rings they look at you and say do you have that...is it anybody to visit me...Ok...I'll be over here playing with my toys. Sometimes if you are going to talk so long without saying hello to me I just go lay down over here.

disadvantages
:
sensitive

Poodles and shihpoos (shih tzu/poodle cross) do need to know everything that is going on...if the door bell rings they look at you and say do you have that...is it anybody to visit me...I can get that for you...really I can.  There is little that goes unnoticed by a poodle-great watchdog.

I can show simple techniques so that you new puppy doesn't become a barker. 
4 or 5 barks is fine with me but more than that is just too much. 
They can learn to do low pitched barks. 
Poodles are extremely intelligent and learn quickly.

I love my dogs.  They are well taken care of.

The health of my dogs is very important;
  • good nutrition
  • exercise
  • sunlight
  • love makes happy dogs

The puppies are handled daily and exposed to new sights and sounds.  This makes the transition to your home easier.

GOOD HABITS  

It is a joy to own a puppy. There is nothing better than your buddy waiting for your return. The overjoyed puppy dance for me returning from the mailbox. It will make anyone feel good no matter how tough the world has been. The smile it puts on your face and feeling of unconditional love is outstanding. I love the greetings.

But owning something that can destroy your property or becomes something that you didn’t bargain for can be an awful experience. That is why I do everything in my power to start you off in the right direction.

Grate/crate method- I started out my puppies with good habits.

Started training with puppies - When you purchase a puppy I will share my methods of training with you.

Demonstration of my methods -
Training is easier than to trying to break bad habits. I won't leave you in the dark trying to figure out what works best!

eBook - All the information is designed to help save you time, effort and money.

Available for questions - You may call me after you take your puppy home or several years later to ask questions.

View ArdyWeb FREE TIPs and stay up to date with what I am learning.  I am always searching for better, healthier, more effective ways for dogs and myself.  When I find a new solution I write a tip sheet to keep my old and present customers abreast of the new found knowledge.

My dogs are not territorial by nature and I show you how to prevent it.
I explain dog language and pack order. You will understand why it is important to be the leader. The joy of having a great dog is just a call away. You deserve to have a happy, healthy pup.

HEALTH GUARANTEE 

Each puppy comes with a
written Minnesota HEALTH GUARANTEE
*click on the HEALTH GUARANTEE button to read more or click on the below link.

dew claws removed

If the pup is born with dew claws, they are removed.  This makes it easier for grooming and eliminates the snagging of clothing.  Many breeders do not remove the dews.  I think it's worth the cost to make life easier for both you and the pup.

up to date on shots & deworming all recorded & given with each puppy.

own
BOTH parents & you can meet them
I do not sell other breeders problems to you

I show you how to have a well behaved puppy
all my information is written in my Ebook & I encourage you to call if problems arise.

Purebred...no in breeding or
line breeding
This means less health issues.

I teach you how to choose a great diet for your new pet
by ingredients not brand names, you'll never be misled by a CEO choosing to make more profit or company buy out.

I take the time to show you how to save time, effort & money in choosing vet care, toys & so much more.  The knowledge will help you prevent problems before they begin.

I have chosen to have the puppies  
registered with APRI  
(America's Pet Registry, INC.).

APRI gives the same information that other dog registry services business do.  AKC (America Kennel Club, is one of the largest and best known).   I used AKC is the past and have found APRI to offer better service in all areas. 

APRI is less expensive for both you & I. 

APRI returns registration forms faster and answer questions quickly and correctly.  

The only disadvantage of not having AKC registration is that if you want to
 show your dog in AKC shows it must be registered AKC. 

Mixed breeds do not come with registered papers. 

Generation history is available.

PUPPIES FOR SALE IN MINNESOTA 

I am a Minnesota dog breeder located in the St. Paul/Minneapolis area (Northfield, MN).  I specializing in breeding Bichon Frise, Shih Tzu and Poodle toy, tiny and teacup (imperial). I chose to breed Bichons, Shih Tzus, Poodles, teddy bears (shih tzu/bichon cross) and shihpoos (shih tzu/poodle cross) because they are non-shed, hypoallergenic, small, lapdogs, good with children & other pets. They are shadow dogs who keep track of you. Other breeds need jobs & lots of exercise to be happy.

I specialize in purebreds that are not only cute, but do not make your allergies flare up. I do not want any dog in my possession that is aggressive, territorial or has qualities that require a lifestyle I can not give to it. I am proud to be ethical, I will not produce a breed that has recently become popular due to a movie or TV show to make a fast buck.

I breed to better the overall improvement of the breed. I am breeding for family pets not a fancy show dog. Some of the traits wanted by the judges can be unhealthy or uncomfortable for the show dogs. Some judges promote qualities that I disagree with and this becomes the guideline of what other breeders follow to get the most money for their puppies. I do not want to be part of the problem. I believe in breeding for health & temperament instead of a look that may cause health issues.

I believe health first and not just looks. I have the best interests for the breed and you, the buyer in mind. Overly pushed in noses (shih tzus) and line breeding mean nothing if the dog I produce bites your children or dies of some heredity issue before its time. Even good breeders can produce unhealthy dogs on occasion. It is the law of averages. The difference is that I, the breeder, am on a mission to find and remove those genetic defaults from my breeding lines. It is why I offer the Minnesota Health Guarantee. I rarely have had to honor the guarantee with a refund, replacement or forfeit the cost of the puppy.

Not all breeders are equal, and the puppies I produce may greatly differ from other breeders’ puppies. To tell the difference between a responsible breeder from an unknowledgeable "backyard breeder" or a commercial "puppy mill", go to my page     
WHY BUY FROM ME.  CLICK THE LINK

One of your biggest challenges with your new puppy is housebreaking. Your puppy needs to learn to potty outside, or use the grate method or both. I recommend grate/crate training. The crate helps your puppy to feel safe and secure, and prevents the puppy from developing bad habits (like chewing), and keeps the puppy safe. The grate keeps the puppy clean & gives it a proper place to relieve itself when you are not able to let it outside.

When you purchase your puppy from ArdyWeb.com, I will go through specific housebreaking advice, feeding (diet), general care, and many other issues of puppy ownership. My eBook is the operation/owner manual and I am available for questions, now, tomorrow and for years to come.

My puppies are raised inside my very active house to socializing them to your home. My puppies experience different sights, sounds, and surfaces (wood, tile, and cement) and meet my family, friends and visitors. My puppies are not scared of their own shadows. They are well-adjusted puppies wanting to meet the world. I own the parents of every puppy on the premises.
