At Dr P puppies exotica in Afton, TN, we specialize in the breeding of very small and exotic hybrid dogs and toy dogs.
We have over 50 years’ experience breeding your favorite pet, and these particular small dogs have toy poodle, shih tzu, and maltese in their background.
These exotic little hybrid puppies are a delight to own and there are many things that are important to having a happy puppy.
First and foremost it is advisable for an owner to assess veterinary care in the area.
We can consult with owners about healthy diets and help to evaluate a commercial food and how to augment for the needs of these puppies.
Puppy training is another area that we will be available for consultation. Of course one of the first behavioral issues is potty training. It is important to contact us for advice right away if any unhealthy or unwanted behavioral patterns emerge.
Grooming is another complex issue that we can discuss. Healthy skin and hair are very important. Grooming includes the use of safe and effective grooming tools. Bathing is also an important procedure and again we can offer suggestions. The subject of coat styling is interesting. These little hybrid puppies look great in a number of trim styles. Although they are largely shed-free, grooming frequently keeps the coat beautiful and can reduce the need for excessive bathing.
Puppies are often available anywhere from 8-10 weeks of age to young adults.
We can discuss the advantages of choosing an older puppy who could be purchased with specialized training in mind such as agility.
