Our puppies and adults are fed top of the line holistic, no by- product food, homemade cookies, and homemade specially dehydrated treats, meats, fruits and veggies free from preservatives, (always made in our home just to be sure).
The teddy bear dog is a breed of "designer dog" that was first introduced at the start of the new millennium. Also known as the Zuchon or Shichon, this dog has earned its place as one of the cutest companion dogs.
For our special sweethearts our entire home, property and life are set up for their enjoyment. Our home is their playground! As they achieve various levels of trust they earn free run of the house and property enjoying toys, treats, toy boxes and play centers both indoors and out as they please (depending on the ages of the puppies). They have their own nursery next to our master bedroom for bed time and afternoon naps, and safe place set ups throughout the house and yard for the young puppies when they can't be directly watched. We take the time to get to know each puppy and we are always happy to help you in the choosing process.
We have 2 huge pages "Meet the Parents" page & Our Dogs Group Photos page full of hundreds of photos of our adults to share with you. Some individual and pristine and some just being dogs all together having a great time running, playing swimming and getting messy.
Zuchons excel in puppy classes often being the star and used to help train others. They receive a lot of praise by the professionals they come across, vets, groomers, instructors, etc.
Our puppies are so sweet and comical just like their parents. The cuddling, nurturing, socializing, and training that we provide our puppies is truly rewarding. We ensure each puppy is fully ready to leave, litter box trained, eating well, well-adjusted, well socialized and had as much play time with the whole family as possible. There are so many aspects to creating an extremely healthy, happy, well rounded puppy in order to make the very best companion for you possible.

Our puppies are truly nurtured, loved and cared for long before their very first breath and years before their conception. We use a variety of specially selected meats, fish, poultry, fruits and vegetables, not only for their regular wellbeing but also in our unique approach to prenatal care. With our holistic approach to our dogs and their puppies they are always in excellent shape in body, mind and spirit.
Delivery of our puppies into the world is always done as a duo. Mike and I are always together by our dogs side and we remain there for the following few weeks. We are fully hands on and whelp our lbabies together in our living room. Once all of the puppies have completed their miraculous journey into this world, we dedicate all of our time to them so we can carry out our constantly active approach with the puppies. We begin 2 weeks of sleeping in opposite shifts in order to dedicate around the clock loving care to mum and her new arrivals. There are many benefits to the puppies and moms having this kind of attention and close care and we have only lightly touched on all the ongoing precautions that we take.
We always ensure our puppies are expertly socialized. Our adult Zuchons play an important part of this on a daily basis, each one playing with the puppies on and off all day long. It's so adorable and a very important part of the puppies upbringing and learning process. With our adult dogs always beside us we all work as a team so our puppies learn, play, develop and flourish in numerous ways. We have a deep bond with each of our puppies and always do what is best for each puppy. We have devoted our lives in the raising of our Zuchons and invest a great deal into our puppies and their fabulous parents. It takes a great deal of experience, time, energy and finances to raise a puppy right and keep the parents pristinely maintained at all times.
Meet The Parents – We have loads of wonderful individual photos of our dogs to share with you to get to know them better, after all they are the amazing parents to your soon to be puppy.
Our puppies are litter box trained and come with your choice of a Lifetime of your dog genetic guarantee or a 5 year genetic guarantee. They also come with a written health guarantee, are veterinarian approved with full check-up, 1st vaccines, health & immunization record with overall health noted by a professional.
Sharing your life with a Zuchon is one of those little life blessings that you can't imagine life without.
We start their litter box training at 4 weeks and it works like a dream for long term use, house training, travelling etc. The litter we use is earth friendly and biodegradable, and doesn't resemble anything else in your home discouraging accidents. So when your puppy arrives home your free to enjoy him or her, rather than clean up messes.
Summary of our Zuchons, Please see our Zuchon Breed Info page for full information on Zuchons as a breed in general.
Teddy bear Zuchon puppies are small in stature, and remain small with their adorable teddy bear look even into adulthood. They range in weight typically from a tiny 5lbs to 18 pounds as adult dogs and anywhere in between. Their coat is soft and fluffy doesn't shed like most dog breeds and is considered to be hypo-allergenic like their originating breeds. They come in a variety of soft, lush coats in gorgeous colors from black & white, white tri-color & brown tri-color to the more rare reds & blacks. We also have the uber rare and very unique green eye beauties and chocolate color coats and noses. Their fur much like hair can be clipped short into a "puppy cut" or "teddy bear cut" or left long and flowing, with top knots and bows. Their faces look like little teddy bear and Ewoks throughout their lifetime. They have round faces with shorter muzzles on some, a little longer nose on others and large beautiful endearing eyes, earning them their teddy bear namesake along with their calm patient happy go lucky temperaments. They also have medium length droopy ears and beautiful showy, fluffy tails. Their coats come in virtually any color, and any color combo giving each dog its own uniqueness that isn't usually seen in other companion breeds.
The Zuchon is eager to please, attentive, cuddly, loving and extremely intelligent, making them ideal to train. They love the company of their human pack, unlike some of the more independent small dog breeds. They also tend to be way less vocal than other small dogs. They will let you know if there's a visitor, but they aren't usually nuisance barkers. Their patient happy go lucky temperament makes them ideal for children and people of all ages and types. They are extremely playful little comedians they will play with every toy you get them and live to entertain you all day long, but will also drop everything instantly for a much loved snuggle.
Health and Care,
Teddy bear Zuchon dogs are very healthy compared to their pure bred ancestors. This is partially due to the genetic diversity of being a mixed breed, but also due to its small stature. For families with allergies, this dog is ideal. Not only does the breed not shed its coat, but it is also very low in dander, making it very hypoallergenic. Regular brushing and the occasional trim is required to keep their coat in top shape. A neglected coat can become matted, and painful. Cleaning of their dogs ears after swimming and on a semi-regular basis will prevent a build-up of any grime and dirt.
To further add to our vast Zuchon knowledge we routinely keep various puppies when its possible to do so, to raise and observe them as our own before making them available as an older further trained puppy at a later date. This provides us with an in depth look at our puppies first hand as they grow and progress. This has the added benefit for those looking for a more advanced puppy that comes with the advantage of having most of the hard work and training already completed and behind them (additional fees will apply decided per puppy).
We provide all of our new fur parents with a copy of our "Complete Guide to Caring for your Teddy Bear Zuchon" handbook. It is an on going booklet from our 14+ years of experience containing everything you will ever need to know to assist you in the continuing care of your puppy for their entire lifetime.
There is an extreme value in our dedicating the last 15+ years to our very healthy, happy, smart dogs that are beyond gorgeous both inside and out. To have the best dog possible they must first be a great puppy born from a great set of parents with an experienced, knowledgeable and loving human support system. It makes a huge difference in the dog you plan to spend your future years with. It requires a huge expense to raise quality puppies properly. We personally take the route of full dedication of our time to our dogs and their puppies in order to raise each puppy personally under foot, providing you the best of the best in your companion with a solid platform to continue building on. This hands-on technique provides you the best of the best. The immense obligation both personally and financially that is involved daily is extensive but is so very rewarding. They are truly our greatest pride and joy.
We take incredible pride in our puppies and the preparation we send them home with shines through their entire lifetime.
