Below is the schedule recommended by our Vet. 

Dew claws: 1 - 3 days of age the dew claw(s) are removed.

Worming: every 2 weeks while in the breeder's care if necessary

  • Di-Gize essential oil may be used as an alternative dewormer

                       use for 3 days in a row once per month or as needed

Vaccinations:  recommended  distemper 4 or 5 way shot

(distemper, Hepatitis CAV-2, Parainfluenza, Parvorirus (coronavirus))

Puppy Series

& then yearly

Rabies: 16 weeks & again the following year then once every 3 years

Neuter (male) or Spade (female) not before 6 months of age

and before 8 months of age for this size dog

Heartworm:  first thaw to first hard freeze

        Snap test-blood test after the first HARD freeze

        Heartworm comes from mosquitoes. 

        Start at 5 months of age,

        continue for at least 3 months

Or use Purification essential oil and do a once a year Heartworm/Lyme test blood test-snap test at end of each season after the first hard freeze.

Lyme: shot &/or blood test for at the end of each season

Comes from deer ticks...

***to pass the disease the tick needs to carry the disease

and be on the animal for 48 hrs.

do a SNAP test (blood test) at the end of each season after the first hard freeze.

If any of my dogs have either disease...I want to know about it before Spring

the worms or disease will not be growing from November to April if the test shows positive.

it is NOT necessary to repeat the snap test in the Spring

there are NO mosquitoes or deer ticks during the Winter in Minnesota.

We have found that many veterinarians redo the vaccinations we have given

we have witnessed health issues or even death  for this size dog

they give the same size dose to a 100# dog as they do to a 2# dog

therefore we do NOT give vaccinations unless noted differently

DO NOT give more than 1 thing (drug) at a time


distemper series, bordetella, rabies, frontline, heartworm...if animal weights <10#

wait 3 days or more between drugs if no reaction

           Small    Non-Shed     Lap dogs

Disease-free puppies are important to us

Oreo with Rapunel's puppy
who still wanted to nurse
when her mother was finished
nursing her...
What is amazing is that Oreo
had never had a litter but
produced milk for
this little female puppy.

 sold with a 1 year health guarantee

 Your new puppy is free of disease/illness and we strongly recommend you to visit
your veterinarian within 48 hours of receiving your new puppy
no matter where you
purchase your puppy.  It's to insure your guarantee and that the breeder was stating  that the puppy is fit for sale.

The guarantee is for one year from the date of purchase.  Most health defects show up
within one year.  If a Vet states in writing within one year that your puppy is ill or has died due to a hereditary or congenital defect you can choose one of following 3 choices:

1-return puppy for a full refund.

2-exchange puppy for one of equal value if available.

3-keep puppy and ArdyWeb pays for Vet costs up to the sold price of the puppy.

Scroll to bottom of page to read Minnesota Statues, section 325F.79. 

We believe our years of experience will help us answer all of your questions

and take care of all of your puppy needs. 

Our vet recommends NOT to offer stud service so we don't.

If other dogs were allowed on our property they can bring fleas, ear mites, sexually
 transmitted diseases or of the deadliest diseases.  Dogs that don't know each other can injure one another or worst if they are not introduced properly when attempting to mate.   We don't want any health problems or anything bad to happen to our babies.

This means we own both parents and we allow you see them. 

Weather conditions or lack of help is the ONLY reason we may not be able to show them.

The sale of dogs and cats is subject to consumer protection regulations.   Minnesota law also provides safeguards to protect pet dealers and animal purchasers.  The following guarantee is a portion of the Minnesota Statues, section 325F.79.
