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.
