Default Puppies!

Ok, my wife and I had agreed after we had to put own older beagle down that we would wait a bit then look for a Caviler King Charles Spaniel, which my wife had wanted for some time. We were on a waiting list for a couple of rescue groups and we also were looking into local breeders. Then the rescue group called with puppies, which is rare for rescue.

We now have not 1, but 2 new female puppies to go alone with the madness at our home. We were only intending on one but could not split them up.

Thanks so far they are a blast, and doing really well. They even slept through the night but I think that was a case of having both of them as they can comfort each other.

Housebreaking is in the works and so far they are doing really well.

Yes they are full bred, but no papers as they were rescued. They know who the parents are. Basically they bought a huge group of dogs at a auction and one of the females was pregnant and they did not know it. There were 3 puppies and we have the 2 females. The male was spoken for. We have met the mother and seen pictures of the father.

We have no interested in showing them or anything other than maybe my daughter doing some obedience work with them.

In the end it really worked out well as we wanted a rescue, but had not had any that were a good fit. Many times with this breed the rescues are skittish around other animals, males, and kids. All of which we have in our home. This was really the perfect match and so far seems like it will work out just great. I will say its been 14 years since I have had a puppy and damn they are fun.

I can barely get any work done around the house between the frogs and dogs. I wouldn't be able to tear myself away from 2 little puppies. Good for you for rescuing them!!

Thank you for rescuing them. :]
I have three rescues and love them. My lab/dachsund mix was extremely shy and scared of everything when I got him and now he doesn't let anyone mess with him except me :]
He doesn't bite but will growl if you do something that could hurt. He was smart and only peed in the house twice even without prior house training.

hopefully yours will catch on quick too. Congrats. :]

I can see why you couldn't split them up! They look like they are joined at the hip.

Very cute - I agree with Candy, keep the pics coming!

Puppies are getting big and doing well.

I do have a question though, can anyone recommend a good gate that will span 53 inches?

So far this one is the one I am looking at:
Kidco, Inc. - Safety Gate Details

Trust me I can relate. I have my frogs and other reptiles and she has 2 labs. One is a field champion and the other was a parvo rescue, so it stunted her growth. She is 11 yrs old and still has a puppy face. Then there is the donkey, at least that is what I call him. 110lb Doberman, a Puggle (designer breed, pug and beagle) and then there is my Bean. 10lb Shihtzu. He is a normal dog. Except he is a night owl. He guards the house at night, and actually sleeps on the floor. The others have beds and the couch. The Doberman thinks he is a lap dog and whines when he is sleepy. He only acts like that with us. For strangers he is the typical Dobie. He has hazel eyes so it makes him look evil. The labs think they are people and the puggle thinks she is a cat.
Oh yeah then there are 2 30lb Manx cats. One thinks he is a dog, loves dog food. The other is a big chicken. They just get on my nerves. One just knocked over a tray of plants.
It is a love hate relationship with them.
Word of advice for people with a few dogs. Get a Dyson vacum cleaner. that thing is a beast.

LOL by wife wants a Dyson, but no way am I spending that much on a vacuum cleaner.

Feeding time is very interesting... these little puppies are absolutely crazy eaters.

Hes doing ok, still getting used to playing with them as they are still small. Hes a really good dog, so it has been rather easy. I did end up putting up a gate to block them out of the front room which has helped a lot keeping an eye on them.

We also gave them a bath in the kitchen sink last night which was interesting. They did well, and again not too bad as they are small.

Default Re: Puppies!

Ive been reading on some local training classes and trainers and just wondered if anyone had any general recommendations.

With 3 dogs I'm leaning more towards having someone come out to the house than a group class. Anyone have any experience with this type of thing? With our past dogs I would not say we have been very focused on training and our older dog is easy and listens rather well. With their now being 3 I think it is more important than ever to get them all on the right path.

Right now here are some of the leading prospects:
Home
Columbus All-Breed Training Club - Dog training and obedience (could get rather expensive)
National K-9 Learning Center (could get rather expensive)

Thanks for any ideas...

What a perfectly adorable pair of puppies. They are just darling. I really do like the breed as they are outgoing, friendly, playful, & lovable. We had quite a few at the boarding kennel that I use to work at & not one of them was shy or mean.
Kudos on the rescueing. It's definately a great way to go & true that puppies are rare. Just over 7 years ago, we were fortunate enough to find our rescue pup (Italian Greyhound) online...Hobbes. He was rescued from a puppy mill & living in MO. We got to be the lucky parents.
The best of luck w/your new, baby girls. ENJOY!!!

Hey Kyle,

Before I got Mocha - over 15-16 years ago I was able to take our other dog for training at Columbus - All Breed.

I am sure you have heard this before, but most of the learning is done by you, the owner. Consistent rules, repetition, positive reinforcement and training the owner how to be the leader in the relationship, etc... is what they teach. Now you are the leader (in your mind at least :-) ) of a bunch of rowdy punks - and you have to earn your stripes in a way.

Before you go to the extreme of bringing someone to your house to train everyone try signing one of the dogs up for a class at Columbus - All Breed - the oldest one would be my choice. Make sure you take the girls with you too so they can see what is going on & be able to practice with the dog as well. Or, sign the puppies up for a class & have the girls take them through the class :-).

Even through I never took Mocha for training I was able to apply what I learned with the first dog to her. She wasn't an angel - but the experience with the first dog gave me enough of a base to be able to work with her and teach her the ropes. Wasn't always successful - she was bone headed, but as she aged you could see the hard work paying off.

Mouse never went for training either - and we were able to apply what I leaned as well.

Now we have two new ones...and the slow steady process of training has begun again. Like yourself, going from animals that were trained to once that are not is challenging, but I am finding that I am often the problem by not being consistent with them, setting boundaries and following through with what we need to do.

Just my thoughts - try a class and begin learning. Get everyone on board and figure out what works and doesn't.

Default Re: Puppies!

I think the key reason for wanting to bring someone to the house is constancy. Using the same commands and etc. My oldest is interested in possible agility training with either one or more of the dogs and I think she would be really good at it but both of the places I am considering require the kids to be at least 12 years old. Shes very mature for her age and not far from 12.

Consistency is the issue and now that I see that I can see why Apspen (the dog we had put down this past summer) was a mess. My wife and I address them very differently and not to be mean by wife lacks a consistent bone in her body.

If it was just me I think I could train them all but with 3 others involved I almost need them to hear it from someone else... If that makes sense. Some times dad gets little cretability in a house of 3 ladies...
