The puppies turned 4 weeks old in early November. They are now in their prime socialization period and curious about the world. This is the best time to introduce them to new people since they haven't entered their first fear period yet. Waiting past the first 12 weeks or so is too late to have the best impact on their development so we take the opportunity to invite people over to visit the puppies during this time. On this day it was my friend, Allison, and her daughter, Abigail. Their family owns seven of our Maremmas so they are excellent puppy socializers! It was raining when I woke up that that day so I was worried we would have to cancel, but luckily we have the Puppy Parlor so the Puppy Playdate could go on as planned, just indoors instead of outside. There were lots of giggles and puppy breath kisses for them everyone! And baby goats to play with, too!

Hi I'm Kim. I have been an avid animal lover all my life but goats and dogs are my favorites so I built a business around them, breeding registered Mini Nubian & Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats and MSCA registered Maremma Sheepdogs. I love sharing my passion and knowledge of these amazing creatures with others.
