Our Australian Labradoodle puppies are born in a whelping box in our living room so mom feels as though she has privacy to whelp her puppies. I am with mom the entire birthing process and I never leave my girls alone. Sometimes we are up for more than 24 hours waiting for these bundles of joy!
Our puppies are exposed to household noises which helps with socialization. We have a doggie door off of our kitchen and our puppies are trained to go in and out by 4 weeks of age. To help with potty training our Australian Labradoodle puppies are also litter box trained.
