Our Cavalier puppies are now just over 6 weeks old. We have been careful in protecting them from disease during those vulnerable first few weeks. The use of a safe disinfectant which is powerful enough to prevent the importation of doggy diseases and the use of a foot-bath for visitors who do not wish to remove shoes, is paramount.
We do not walk our adult dogs when we have puppies for the same reason. They are absolutely fine and happy in the garden for now.
Of course, no-one can exclude disease completely, as some viruses are airborne, but we make every effort to ensure our puppies are safe, whilst at the same time allowing them a degree of freedom to explore and gain confidence.
As they reach 8 weeks of age, our puppies will be booked in with our Vets, Donaldson & Partners for their first vaccination and their second health-check (they had their first health-check within their first 24 hours of life).
Then they will be ready for their Great Adventure in their New Homes. Anyone who is interested in one of our puppies should contact us.
