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.
