We Breed, We Train, We Care as a Family!
When the litter is whelped, we most likely have deposits from people on our waiting list for a male or a female puppy. All applicants at that point have already filled out our Puppy Application, have been interviewed on the phone or in person and were approved to purchase one of our puppies. Even though we are aware of prospective puppy owners’ goals and expectations for the pup they are waiting for, at that time we do not know which puppy will go to which home.
Puppies are home raised either at Midnight Solo Headquarters or by members of our extended Family. The litter is well taken care of and socialized to the best of our abilities, exposed to different surfaces, such as linoleum, hard wood, carpet, wood deck, grass and gravel in summer or snow in winter and as many sounds as we can find life or on CDs.
Puppy Gym is introduced at 3 weeks of age. We build drive, use flirt pole, teach to fetch,
Puppies are handled by many people and children, exposed to a person in a wheelchair, and other dogs. In the first 2 weeks we implement bio-sensory program that is thought to give an extra boost to immune, adrenal and cardio-vascular systems, giving our pups a great start in life.
By the time pups are ready to go to the new home, they have been handled, washed, blow dried and groomed several times.
We carefully observe the litter, weigh them every day for first 30 days to insure proper food intake and take detailed notes on each puppy, keeping in mind each family’s expectations.
MSK Owner Jean is an AKC Breeder of Merit. Our kennel is actively involved in Better Bred Genetic program and Embark genetic testing.
We implement suitable for our breed elements of Puppy Culture and Avidog puppy raising and aptitude testing protocols.
MSK Pups are exposed to a baby dog walk, wobble board, tunnel, puppy pool.
We load the clicker, teach basic recall and several interactive games.
At approximately 7 weeks pups are vaccinated, micro chipped and carefully examined by our vet. Then we assess each litter and each puppy for aptitude for learning, problem solving skills, basic temperament trends and ability to handle stress in various situations.
When the test is completed we spend hours elaborating which puppy will be most suited for a family/person that is waiting for it.
Our goal is to give each potential buyer a puppy that will fit their lifestyle and meet their expectation for the work their planning to do with our BRT: lovely companion, service or therapy dog, dog, competitive obedience, scent detection , rally, tracking, SAR dog, show or Protection dog etc.
It is also very important to us to place each puppy in a home where they can develop and grow up to their full potential: physically and mentally.
Puppies with open registration sold only to people who share Midnight Solo’s vision for the breed and are able and willing to do the work it takes to raise an all round BRT that excels in show ring, competes and is titled in one or several performance modalities that the pup is most gifted in.
Our BRTs are our beloved companions, our best friends and partners, have excellent temperament, structure, health and earn many conformation and working titles before we consider breeding.
It is only fair to expect the same level of commitment from our breeding partners.
We are grateful to each owner for choosing and loving our Puppies.
Looking forward to seeing our MSK family Grow.
