When the pups are about 3 – 4 weeks old, each litter is moved to a separate room that is fitted out
for puppies: shavings on the floor, food, water, a cozy bed, and lots and lots of toys. Shavings are
located and kept swept up into one specific area of the room for pottying. By the time the pups
are 4 or 5 weeks old, they seldom miss. This is the first phase of potty training. When they have
mastered this phase, they will be amenable to the use of potty pads or a specific area of the yard.
Our facilities are inspected and approved by the American Kennel Club and by USDA/APHIS.
Much of the day, adult Corgis at LAUZON RANCH live and play in the great
outdoors – as do the deer and the antelope!
When play time is over, they live in 8' x 16' pens with an igloo, day bed, and shade.
At whelping time, the Corgis have their own “Puppy Palace” – an
older mobile home that we have fitted out for them. The living-
dining area has been converted to a whelping room with stall mats
(3/4” rubber) and portable fencing around each pen. Mamas are
never confined once the pups are born. They have free range of the
trailer and a doggy door to the outdoors. We find this causes them
much less stress – they’ve just got to get away from those babies
once in a while!
All of our puppies come to you with the tails they
were born with! Please ask our reasons for this if
you would like to know more.
