Nursing Home Visits

The 8 weeks that the puppies are with us are precious, but the very best days are when we the pups to the local nursing home and retirement center. We've done this with each litter since 2007. Scan the photos below and look at how much the kids have changed over the years! We try to take each litter at least three or four times.

It's a toss up who enjoys these days the most -- the residents, the kids, or the puppies! These nursing home visits are also a great opportunity for the puppies to be exposed to new smells, sounds, and textures. Riding 10 to 20 miles each way also allows to become accustomed to travel in a vehicle and time in a crate.
