Lastly, we give them lots of outdoor playtime to explore, and they are exposed to the sights and sounds of the surrounding wild life. Particularly, deer, Canadian Geese and Sand Hill Cranes.
All though never left unattended, we introduce the puppies to outdoor boundaries. This is important that they are familiar with fencing prior to going to their new homes. One area is larger which is a 15 x 30 fenced in Play yard and the other is a smaller 4 x 4 playpen. This smaller one comes in handy. We use it quite often for our larger dogs when drying them off before coming in the house.
We also make a small swimming pool available for those daring little puppies whom choose to venture.
