We occasionally have puppies available for sale from our AKC registered Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs
Our puppies are raised as naturally as possible, born outdoors if weather permits and they remain with their working parents until they are ready for their new homes. The youngest age puppies can be taken home is 8 weeks old, but we prefer 10 weeks. We have found that when mama and puppies determine the weaning schedule, 8 weeks is earlier than they would like to end the nursing relationship.
Puppies’ first food beyond their mother’s milk is raw egg, mixed with water. As the puppies teeth grow and their ability to eat whole food increases, we add ground meat mixed with fruits and vegetables run through a food processor and then chunks of meat and organs as well as bones. We include herbs and natural supplements (eg olive oil and cod liver oil, apple cider vinegar, etc) at least one meal per day. By 8 weeks old your puppy is accustomed to eating whole and ground meat, bones (primarily chicken necks and wings) as well as a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs. We have been really impressed with the difference a raw diet has made in just one generation.
We believe it is important for livestock guardian dog puppies to have a strong bond with humans. Our puppies get lots of attention and interaction from a young age. We have found that a strong bond with people will help puppies take cues from their people about what is expected of them as livestock guardian dogs. It is also very easy for them to transition to being companions and house pets.
