We live on 7 fenced acres in Franktown, Colorado where our dogs have plenty of room to exercise. I am a stay at home Mom with 2 children, 4 horses, a Shiloh Shepherd, and 3 cats. Our puppies are whelped in their own clean, quiet area in our home. I sleep next to Mom and her "babies" for the first 4 weeks, in case any problems should arise. Puppies are well-socialized and exposed to daily life of the "household". We spend many hours playing and caring for the puppies, and they truly are treated as part of our family.
