Here at Salt River Kennels, we do require a spay/neuter contract with all of our puppies. Please speak to spouse or partner before inquiring.
We are a family that raises F1 and F1b Aussiedoodles in Central Kentucky, where we live in a beautiful setting nestled on 5 acres.We have been breeding for 5 years and received our Good Dog /Good Breeder badge, which required multiple interviews, Vet references, and verification of genetic health testing on our parent dogs.
I am a retired Veterinarian Technician, after working in the field for 20 years. I have also worked as a professional groomer, and trained for Aussie Rescue.
Here at Salt River Kennels, we understand how important the early stages of training are to a puppy. For this reason, we start handling our puppies from the day they are born until the day the go home with their new families.
We start Early Neurological Stimulation at 3 days of age. We rub their feet, lie them on their backs play with their mouths, etc. We also incorporate puppy enrichment and puppy culture into our training program. Puppies are sound desensitized so that they are not frightened of things such as vacuum cleaners, blenders,TVs, fireworks, etc. At 4 weeks of age, we introduce a litter pan and crate, which starts their training to not potty in their beds. This makes housebreaking easier for their new families. We also start grooming at 4 weeks of age, so that pups are used to nail trimmings, and the sound of the clippers At 6 weeks, our pups go to the Vet for their check ups, vaccinations and appropriate worming.This is when we start teaching our puppies their basic manners such as no nipping, and no jumping.
Our goal is to raise healthy, confident puppies, ready to take on the world.
