Puppy Socialization in Action {Texas Puppy Trainer}

Contrary to what many breeders and puppy owners think, kids and neighbors playing pass the puppy is not early puppy socialization.

As a Certified Puppy Start Right Instructor I understand the importance of early puppy socialization and how crucial it is for creating a strong foundation.

As a breeder and instructor I try to educate our new families on the importance of exposing young puppies to as many new experiences as possible. We have Zoom meetings to discuss their puppies progress as well as observe socialization and Puppy Culture protocol sessions. We also discuss common puppy behaviors, and the importance of continuing training in a puppy socialization class followed by a training foundations class .

Winter’s Expected Litter. {Texas Husky Breeder}

We have several confirmed ties (over several days) between Winter and Tyrion. Expected due date is mid July. Due dates are estimated and can vary depending on ovulation.

We have a really strong waiting list in place and we are now ready to take deposits. Winter typically has 6-7 puppies, so I feel comfortable taking 4 deposits prebirth. Remaining deposits will be taken after pups are born and deposit holders have chosen. Deposits are NON refundable (they are transferable up to 12 months). Please make sure you are stable and ready to commit to the purchase before placing a deposit.

I can not guarantee what gender, eye color or coat color will be available. If you place a prebirth deposit you must be open to the puppies that are born. I can’t control genetics. In the past we have had blue, parti and bi eyed puppies. Brown is always a possibility. We are NOT blue eyed husky breeders. We love the breed not the eyes. All eye colors love you the same! In the past coat colors included, Black and White, Black, Tan and White, and Red and White. Dirty faces and traditional masks as well as standard coats and semi woolly coats are also possible.

Please feel out a puppy application if you are interested in this litter.

Our next litter will be between Reign x Stark. Breeding expected to be in July (pups in Sept) but it all depends on when Reign cycles next.

5 days old {Texas Husky Puppies}

Everyone is doing great. All are nursing well and gaining weight. “Fury” is gaining at a slightly slower rate so I will be supplementing as well as making sure he gets plenty of uninterrupted nursing time. Please check out the Available Pups page for more info on available puppies.

*We did not witness any mating and originally assumed this was a false pregnancy. The only male Amara was around was Tyrion. That does make this breeding, line breeding. A detailed explanation of the circumstance of this litter can be found in the previous posts.

Meet the Avengers {Texas Huskies}

Here is our surprise litter. 8 gorgeous babies. At this time all are doing well. It took a couple days to not only recover from the guilt but to come to terms with the situation in general. There are no words for how horrible I feel. But we can’t go back, we can only move forward and I choose to go forward with positivity and love. Our only goal at the moment is to find these sweet babies forever humans to love. Look for individual photos and info posted sometime early next week.

Thor (red), Iron man (black), Black Widow (pink), Loki (purple), Hulk (green), Fury (yellow), Captain America (blue), Hawkeye (tan)

2019 Breeding Plans {Texas Siberian Husky Breeders}

Good Morning Friends! We are going to have a busy early 2019!  Mother Nature threw a curve ball at us, but it is not a surprise. Female canine’s cycle sync up just like human females.  Winter was originally “suppose” to come into heat back in Sept which would have been 8 months from her previous heat. Instead she waited until November and started her heat a week before Reign’s expected cycle.  We knew there was a chance this would happen.  What surprised us was that them both being in heat brought Amara into heat earlier than expected.  She and Autumn have been on the same cycle since they started.  After a lot of thought and discussion with family we decided to go ahead and allow her to breed with Ghost. She is due early February.  We think the spacing of the litters will make thing a bit easier. Developmentally Amara’s puppies will be behind Winter and Reign’s (if she is pregnant) making things easier on us. So far Autumn has not come into heat.  At this time we plan to skip Autumn’s next heat.   This will be hard for Autumn because she and Amara have always had litters at the same time. She loves being a mommy and is really good at it. We are worried about jealously issues so we will be keeping an eye on her.

We knew bringing more girls into our breeding program would be mean an increase in more litters at the sometime, but we do not want to overload ourselves or our girls. Their health is always our top propriety as is having the time to care for the litters and making sure we find them all forever homes.  At this time I plan on staying home and making sure everyone gets adequate attention and supervision.

Our upcoming litters page has info on our current plans.  We are taking deposits on Amara and Ghost’s litter.  I will be taking deposits on Winter’s litter once I can confirm pregnancy and I will NOT take deposits on Reign litter until after the litter is born. Puppy Applications will need to be on file for all new families. Puppy application does not guarantee you a puppy. I can refuse anyone a pup at anytime for any reason.

Please feel free to message me with any questions, or concerns.

Thank you,

Missy 😀

Deposit Information {Texas Husky Breeder}

DEPOSIT INFO FOR UPCOMING LITTERS: Puppy Application/Questionnaire is required for anyone interested in placing a deposit and does not guarantee you a puppy. We only take 2 deposits (pick one and pick two) per litter and only after we confirm breeding took place. We may hold off on taking deposits with first time momma’s to ensure they safely whelp. Since deposits are non refundable we feel this is best for potential buyers and us. We rather be safe than sorry. Deposits should be paid in full and sent promptly to reserve your spot. You may forfeit your spot if payment is not received in a timely fashion.

There is never a deposit to be placed on our waiting/contact list but it is your job to watch our page and contact me once the litter is born if you are still interested in a pup. I will try to reach out to people on the list, but I don’t have time to track people down and wait days for replies.  Deposits placed after the first two reserve picks have chosen are first come first serve and deposit must be made promptly. After that payments can be made as long as the puppy is paid off by 8 weeks old. Balance must be paid by the time the pups reach 8 weeks. Pups go home at 8 weeks, and only after their vet check including fecal test. There will be a boarding fee for pups not picked up on time unless prior arrangements are made. Pups will not be released unless complete balance has been received.

I am very easy going, if something comes up please be HONEST and talk to me.

Stages of Labor {Husky Breeder In Texas}

Alright guys, we are now playing the waiting game. Amara’s estimated due date was yesterday (the 31st) and Autumn’s is next Tues (the 7th).  I have been talking about stages of labor and I thought I would share with you guys what I am looking for.  😀

In some instances the first stage of labor is missed altogether.

Sings we are looking for:

  • Nesting behavior
  • Dam could become distressed (including: pacing, acting uncomfortable, panting, restlessness, discomfort, licking vulva, vomiting, and frequent urination.)
  • Temperature should be taken three times per day and should be 100-100.8° prior to labor.
    When temp drops considerably, to 98-99° puppies should present themselves within 24 hours. At this time, inform your vet of pending puppies. After the drop the temp will stay at about 99.4
  • Dam may refuse food as her appetite goes away.
  • Stools may turn dark.
  • Do not let dam out to relieve herself without supervision.
  • Offer smaller meals, and maybe try some more expensive canned food.

The first stage of labor can last 24 hours, and can go totally unnoticed. Do NOT give calcium during this stage of dilating. Calcium can only be given when contractions are a minute apart, and she is constantly pushing.

The second stage usually begins with a rather clear or mucous-like discharge from the vulva. In the second stage of labor contractions should start. There will be more discharge, and the presentation of a round, golf-ball size membrane sac of water. This sac is still the 2nd stage of labor and dilating. Do not give calcium. She is not ready to push. This is usually just the horn sac. Pup can follow in 20 minutes to a few hours. Some vets recommend not letting her puncture this sac. This is the protective sac that the puppies are in. But do not fret if she pops it. This is Her water breaking. After presentation of this sac, the puppy could be out in about 30 minutes, but it can take a couple of hours. If the dam continues to strain hard for longer than 45 minutes on a single puppy, it is wise to call your vet. (Remember there should never be time limits, as every situation is different.) It is always best to call your vet and do what he/she recommends.

The third stage: Presentation of puppy and delivery of placenta.
