All of Garjan puppies are
the same price. $3000.00. show, pet, cropped or not cropped. (YES, I PLACE UN CROPPED PUPPIES) I ask for 500.00
when the puppies are 6 to 7 weeks old, this pays $450.00 for the cropping in Illinois (I am in Michigan) and the 50.00 left over from each puppy pays for
gas and lodging. Then I ask for 2500.00 when you pick up your puppy.
IF you get a puppy and
you do not want her cropped. I ask you to pick up your puppy for the 3000.00
the weekend prior to the puppies getting cropped which is usually the first
Monday after they are 8 weeks old.
35 days after breeding
we get an Ultrasound. and let the people on the list know we are expecting
puppies. Sonja US is on May 9th Abby's is May 16th.
Day 57 or 58 after
breeding we go to the vet and get an X-ray and we are penciled in on the books
in the event we need a C-section, this helps prevent the Emergency Call at 3 AM
cost. I can still call at 3 am but they do not charge as much.
Puppies are delivered
at home, the first one or two are born in our bed, we have special bedding for
them to whelp on, the labor process can take hours and I try to sleep when I
can, the first two weeks I do not sleep much. Then after the first few puppies
are born we move to the whelping box in the base of my closet.
As the puppies are
born we tie off umbilical cords with wax free floss, we weigh them and time of
birth and they get a colored paper collar that will be their color they will have
coinciding folders with their information vaccinations and worming etc.
Day 3 or 4, depending
when they are born, they go to the vet and get their first exam and tails and
dues are removed.
The next day I start
Bio Sensory training.
by Dr. Carmen Battaglia
May 1995 AKC Gazette
The U.S. Military in
their canine program developed a method that still serves as a guide to what
works. In an effort to improve the performance of dogs used for military
purposes, a program called "Bio Sensor" was developed. Later, it
became known to the public as the "Super Dog" Program. Based on years
of research, the military learned that early neurological stimulation exercises
could have important and lasting effects. Their studies confirmed that there
are specific time periods early in life when neurological stimulation has
optimum results. The first period involves a window of time that begins at the
third day of life and lasts until the sixteenth day. It is believed that this
interval of time is a period of rapid neurological growth and development, and
therefore is of great importance to the individual.
Sensor" program was also concerned with early neurological stimulation in
order to give the dog a superior advantage. Its development utilized six
exercises, which were designed to stimulate the neurological system. Each
workout involved handling puppies once each day. The workouts required handling
them one at a time while performing a series of five exercises. Listed in no
order of preference the handler starts with one pup and stimulates it using
each of the five exercises. The handler completes the series from beginning to
end before starting with the next pup. The handling of each pup once per day
involves the following exercises:
1. Tactile stimulation -
holding the pup in one hand, the handler gently stimulates (tickles) the pup
between the toes on any one foot using a Q-tip. It is not necessary to see that
the pup is feeling the tickle. Time of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds.
2. Head held erect -
using both hands, the pup is held perpendicular to the ground, (straight up),
so that its head is directly above its tail. This is an upward position. Time
of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds
3. Head pointed down -
holding the pup firmly with both hands the head is reversed and is pointed
downward so that it is pointing towards the ground. Time of stimulation 3 - 5
4. Supine position -
hold the pup so that its back is resting in the palm of both hands with its
muzzle facing the ceiling. The pup while on its back is allowed to sleep
struggle. Time of stimulation 3-5 seconds.
5. Thermal stimulation -
use a damp towel that has been cooled in a refrigerator for at least five
minutes. Place the pup on the towel, feet down. Do not restrain it from moving.
Time of stimulation 3-5 seconds, then they are held and loved offered a bottle,
I do bottle feed all the puppies, with the motherís milk just to make sure they
get all they can to grow properly. Optimum Food for Optimum Growth.
The Bio Sensory is done
until they go to their new homes OR I can no longer hold them.
At 2 weeks they are
given Pryantel, ALL the dogs will be treated.
At 3 weeks they are
given Safeguard (Panacure) for 3 days. Again All the dogs will be treated.
I have a common area that they go in to and their mother
can reinfect them with parasites if I do not treat everyone.
At 4 weeks they are
given a vaccination that is only parvo and distemper it is called a
Neo Par. it is for puppies over 3 weeks of age.
5 weeks they are treated
with Albon. It is to treat for Cocci a parasite that the Panacure does not
kill, again every one is treated.
6 weeks they are treated
with the Panacure again.
7 weeks they
are vaccinated again with the Neo par. This give them immunity
in case there was a parvo or distemper puppy/dog at the vet in the past 6
Weeks this is the week they go to the vet for Cropping... This is
where the puppies are given a complete checkup before they are put under anesthesia for
ear cropping. Dr. will not crop a puppy that is not 100% perfect. (If you live in the LA area, you can pick your puppy up at the vets office, for a small fee tthey will do all the after care for you, I can help you arrange this when they are cropped)
I bring the puppies home
and Treat ears with NFZ Powder and gold bond medicated powder mix. (you will have a kit that come with your puppy I will show you how to care for the ears AND I have written instructions and Video as well.)
9 weeks the sutures
are removed from the ears and the ears are re taped to the cup. They cannot be
put up on post YET they must be healed in order to wrap the ears properly,
Also at 9 weeks after sutures are removed they are given a 7-way
10 weeks the ears are
usually up in wraps and they are ready to go home.
IF and only IF you want to,
you can get your puppy after cropping and I can show you how to care for the ears. Your vet may or may not remove sutures. some will some will not, you will have
proof your puppy was done at a vet office, this too makes a difference to
I have an excellent
video to help you with posting the ears. It is not hard and gets easier every
time you do it.
Your puppy will need another 7 way vaccination at 13 weeks and then a third vaccination and Rabies at 16 weeks your puppy is done for a year.
I am not sure IF I
left anything out, IF you are reading this and you have questions, Please let me know.. I would be happy to hear from you and your questions and opinions do matter..
People say things to me and I have to research and process them. BUT I ALWAYS Do Right by the Doberman Breed.
Thank you for your time..
