Even though not all of them are leaving us I will miss Paika's pups as in many ways this was one of the best and easiest litters ever. Maybe because there were only five of them, and usually our litters are larger. Last year we had 14 pups being raised at the same time!
All the pups were precocious in their tracking but also responsive and super people oriented. We really have high hopes for them, and most likely repeat the litter next year. For now Sky (Red boy) and Summer (Pink female) are staying here.
I could not stress enough how helpful my training with Suzanne Clothier has been when it comes to evaluating these puppies. The CARAT course made me look at them from a new perspective, and now I can articulate much better their strengths and weaknesses in terms of sociability, excitability, resiliency, biddability and so on.
