We like between 6 months and a year with closer to a year being our personal preference. Always go with your vets recommendation for your specific pup.
Do you start to potty train my puppy?
We abolutely do. That being said your puppy still needs lots of patience and consistence in their new home.
Do you crate train?
We sure do! We introduce the crate to the puppies at a very young age and as they grow they spend more and more time in it willingly with the door open.
Do Aussies do well in apartments?
They definitely can! It really depends more on the person than the dog. If you are active and engaging with them they are super adaptable and happy.
If I have questions about my puppy after I bring them home can I call, text or email?
We for sure are happy to help you as much as we can and will gladly continue to answer your questions or concerns for the life of your dog.
