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)

Things are not always what they seem. {Texas Siberian Huskies}

Please be mindful of people who do not freely show their pack, who only show puppies but not their adults, who zoom in on puppies but not their surroundings, who do not show where puppies are whelped and raised but only stage and set up photo and video ops. Please watch for people who toss toys in a pen to imitate what they see others do but have no idea of the reasons behind it. People who refuse to invest to better themselves because it’s easier to imitate what others are doing. People who have not taken the time to educate themselves but manipulate what you see by offering up an illusion.

It matters less where dogs are raised, what matters more is the honesty and pride people have in what they are doing, from raising and caring for their own dogs to whelping litters and raising puppies. What good is experience if people have not grown or educated themselves?

The internet allows people to hide behind a screen, free to be whoever they think you want them to be…. Watch for honesty in claims being made about certifications, programs being used, pedigrees, showing, vet care, etc. ASK FOR PROOF! No one is perfect, we all make mistakes and even when we think we are doing everything right nature throws us a curve ball. Mistakes and accidents must happen for us to grow and seek out new information.

Just be careful out there…… remember all that glitters and sparkles is not gold! Sometimes it is just someone good at smoke, mirrors, manipulation, imitation, setting the stage and photoshop!!

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 😀
