After some 'hello' cuddles, let your puppy explore their new surroundings uninterrupted.
Children may need to be reminded that while their puppy needs lots of love, it is also very important for them to rest and not be over handled.
Introducing other family pets needs to be done cautiously with lots of supervision.
Provide a little area that is just for your puppy such as the laundry or a quiet corner of the house/bedroom. Your puppy will miss curling up with its siblings so provide some soft blankets and bedding. You may also want to put a hot water bottle beneath the bedding to help keep him/her warm on cooler nights. Always ensure your 'oodle has access to drinking water and place the potty training mat close by.
A nutritionally complete (scientifically formulated) dog food is highly recommended. We use Advance Puppy (small breed) and provide with ~1month supply to get you started. We suggest leaving dry food and plenty of water available to your puppy all day long. If you would like to spoil them with a porridge you can mix puppy dry food soaked in warm water with a little Advance Puppy wet food added for extra flavouring. Puppies love treats but be mindful that too many can cause diarrhoea so introduce these slowly. More information will be in their puppy booklet which outlines other yummy, healthy treats such as blueberries and other fruit/vege.
Your local council requires your pet to be registered. Your puppy has been microchipped and all the necessary documentation is provided to you when you take over its care, to help with this process. If you move house remember to update your details so your puppy can be returned to you if it is ever lost.
Booster vaccinations will be required and are outlined in the vet health card you will be given. The first booster is usually at 10weeks of age. This is a great time to get to know your local vet. After all 3 vaccinations, an annual vaccination will be required thereafter.
You will have to keep the puppy all to yourself (i.e. no dog parks or puppy playdates or daycare) until your puppy has been safeguarded against viruses and parasites such as heartworm. This is 2 weeks after their 3rd booster vaccination (~16 weeks of age) but discuss this with your Vet first. Be mindful that your precious puppy will remain a small dog. A dog park can be overwhelming and unsafe.
We recommend using Nexgard Spectra chewable tablets monthly to cover against intestinal worms, fleas, ticks, mites and heart worm infections. You puppy may be a little fussy so the chewable tablet may need to be mixed in yummy food such as sausage or cheddar cheese. This must be given MONTHLY - perhaps set a reminder in your phone to help.
Desexing is performed by a veterinarian and prevents unwanted puppies. Most councils will offer a registration discount. We do not desex before re-homing as we believe this is unhealthy as the puppy has not yet reached maturity. Please speak to your Vet about when this is best.
Puppies can be re-homed at 8 weeks of age. We are located near Toowoomba but can arrange for flights within Australia (depending upon current COVID restrictions) and can deliver along the SouthEast Coast of Queensland.
Please contact me if you would like to purchase a puppy. I can answer any questions and discuss if our puppy is suitable. I will then forward you the health guarantee and bank details for a 10% deposit. Please note: full payment is required on or before re-homing date.
Thanks to the parent Poodle dog, the designer oodle puppies have low to non shedding coats making them ideal for an inside pet. This means you will need to brush them regularly to avoid any knots and have them groomed professionally a few times per year.
Our puppies are expected to grow approximately ruler height (30cm) and weigh around 5-7kg.
These puppies are popular designer breeds as they are a lovable, family friendly pet who get along with everyone.
Please contact me if I can be of any further help.
