Gideon is ready for retirement

Update -- Gideon has found a new home.


Gideon had a great show career -- having finished his championship quickly.  He has sired a couple of litters and now he looking for his forever retirement home.  Gideon is a sweet and loving dog -- however, he does need some time to warm up to strangers.  He gets along great with other dogs -- but, has not been around cats.  He would probably do best with a family that does not have young kids.  He gets somewhat nervous -- when our grandkids are loud and rambunctious.  Gideon has all of his health testing -- eyes, hips, etc.  He is 5 years old and nuetered.  If you think Gideon is a good fit for you -- drop me an email cardiclarke@gmail.com or call me at 479 466 8836.

6 week puppy pictures

The pups are growing.  The weather was nice in Arkansas and we used the opportunity to let the puppies play outside for a few hours.  When they were good and worn out we tried to take some stacked pictures.  This is one of the steps we take to see who will stay with us as a show dog -- and which pups will go on to be great family companions.  At this time we have most of the puppies sold.  However, we may have one still available.  Feel free to contact me at cardiclarke@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Two Week Birthday

The puppies turned 2 weeks old on Sunday.  They are trying to walk but still a little shaky.  We should start seeing the eyes open in the next few days.  Puppies had toenails trimmed on Sunday.  Some of the pups objected but most handled it without much of a fuss.


I have had several inquiries on how we socialize our puppies.  At birth we start doing Bio-Sensor exercises.  Which involves handling and stimulating the puppies in various ways.  Below is a link to how the exercises are done.

The puppies are handled multiple times a day.  We literally set in front of the whelping pen holding, petting and talking to the puppies several times a day.  We believe this interaction is critical towards having a well socialized dogs.


Here is a picture of the puppies taken on Sunday (their two week birthday).
