Only 2 boys left.
Treatsntrix is a company that was established in 2002 by Teresa Waight and her family. Teresa had owned Lhasa Apso for about a year when she made the huge decision to become a breeder. Teresa chose to have Treatsntrix as her affix as her first Lhasa Apso was called Trixie, as she was her first breeding bitch, and the company is in her memory.
We do not let our puppies leave us until they are 14-16 weeks old as we have found this to be a good age for them to go to their new homes. We have both of their vaccinations done, they are de-wormed/de-fled, they are micro chipped before they leave us. We toilet train them as much as we can in the 14-16 (the Chihuahua pups normal take longer to toilet train so its 16) weeks we have them, Door flap training, lead training.
1 to 2 weeks - The pups are handled every day, this consists of playing with paws, rubbing around the eyes, month, tummy etc.
3 to 4 weeks - Puppies eyes and ear are now open, so we talk to them, still doing all the hands-on stuff with them.
5 to 6 weeks - Puppies will be given puppy food (dry) they get to try different foods like Chicken, Cheese, Lasagne, etc. We feel this is an important part of making sure the puppies go to their new home with knowledge if their tummy can get upset with some kinds of food. They have their 1st Vaccination done as well as their 6-week check with the vet. Teresa is a qualified micro chipper, so she will do this for them around this time.
7 to 10 weeks - This is the time they go out into the garden to learn all about outside, they love this time as they run around play fighting with each other and all the adult dogs. One of the other services we offer is to have the pup neutered for a male and spayed for a girl, please read below for more details.
11 to 16 weeks - this is when we do the lead training with the pups, we try to get them to sit at the road side until we are ready to cross (this is not always 100% and new owners must keep up training)
We also offer the service of your new pup being spade or neutered, you pay the cost of the operation, but we do all the caring of the pup. We have found over the years that this is a good thing to have done before they leave, for the dogs it means even if they smell a bitch in season they will not want to sent everywhere.
The bitches if she never has a season she will never miss them, we noticed that every time they were due to have a season when we had our own girls spade every time they should come into season they would become very quiet and moody (just like us women)
We know many vets have said in the past to wait until they are older, but many vets have changed their views on this now. Dogs and bitch’s personality do seem to change if they have a season or smell a bitch that is in season. We all want the personality of the puppy to come through and taking this step at 10 weeks helps that happen. Please ask for more Info.
We also play with them and try to socialise them with as many things as we can i.e.: other dogs, children and all common indoor/outdoor surroundings, noises etc.
As a breeder for 15 years now we have always registered our puppies with the KC but became very upset when there was a problem with one of our pups but when we ask the KC to help we were told that the paperwork was "only a birth certificate and not proof of ownership" we feel that the KC make a lot of money from people like myself that are NOT and have NEVER shown their dogs and do not want their puppies to be shown.
We have always only sold our puppies to be loving pets, we spend 14 -16 weeks giving them the best start in life. We know a lot of people think that if they are KC registered they are getting a true breed of dog but we are sorry to say that is not always the case as the KC do not do any checks into the parents of the dogs.
We now registered all our puppies with Dog Lovers, this company care for all dogs but only has pets, they like we do not agree with the showing. Please call or email us for more info.
We have 2 lovely little boys ready now, they are both ready now to move on to their new loving family’s. If you are interested please get in contact, as wouldn’t like you to miss out on those wonderful pups. I have set up a messenger group with lots of photos and videos on, happy to add you so you can see for yourself what happy and content pups they are.
