Vaccines
Given at 6 weeks
Vanguard Plus 5/CV
Protect against canine distemper, hepatitis, adenovirus cough, parainfluenza, parvovirus, and coronavirus.
We recommend vaccinating your puppies again at 9 weeks , 12 weeks, & 16 weeks.  
You can opt to add Lepto in at 12 and 16 weeks.   Consult your veterinarian.
Give the Rabies at 16 weeks and repeat 1 year later. Depending on your area, your vet will start your puppy on heartguard yearly or during the summer months.    We recommend a bordetalla at 16 weeks as well. 

Dewormer
Pyrantel Pamoate (information)
puppies dewormed at 2, 4, 6, and 8


Puppy
Food
ProPlan
We keep our puppies on puppy food until they are 1 year of age. Puppies are fed ProPlan Puppy Food. When the puppies first go home, they are used to eating 3 times a day. You can transition them to 2 times a day.

Nightime/cratetime
Puppies have been introduced to individual crates.   I put their blankets into the dryer to heat them
up prior to placing the puppy in the crate and give them stuff animals
purchased at the thrift store
(wash them in bleach prior to giving to puppies to disinfect).
If the puppies pee in their crates or decide to be destructive then
remove their bedding and toy until they can be trusted again.

Microchips:
All Puppies are microchipped with Homeagain Microchips.

AKC Registration:
All Puppies will be sent home with their AKC registration papers.
   I am an AKC Breeder of Merit and it helps me to maintain this status when 100% of my litters are registered with AKC.

Puppy Collar:
Gun Dog Supply supports many regional Brittany Club events, and I support them
whenever I can. I buy my collars there and they include free name plates.
They also have nice first aid kits which are essentials for those who hunt
or hike with their dogs.
