Puppies: “Hey, we used to
all fit in here!
no puppies available. Contact Arbeca about
litters planned for 2012.
Arbeca puppies are
at minimum CERF (eyes) tested before leaving for their
new homes. They are raised on a combination of home prepared
whole foods or high quality, ethically produced prepared
foods like Honest
Kitchen, Champion Pet Foods, Origins and Acana. Honest Kitchen bridges the gap
between raw, homemade and commercially prepared foods.
If puppies will go on to homes planning to feed a high
quality kibble we work with the prospective home to select
an appropriate food and to have the puppy started on it
prior to leaving here to ensure a smooth transition.
Like all Arbeca Ibizans, puppies have
ample exposure to outdoor exercise on our five acre property.
Puppies are born and raised in the house.
The “clicker approach” to
training begins while they are still in the whelping
box. Positive methods are used to teach beginning basic
house manners concerning mouthing, jumping, etc. Close
attention is paid in evaluation of temperament and drive
attributes to ensure puppies are matched to homes compatible
with their personalities and energy levels.
Those interested in
lure coursing or other performance activities are especially
encouraged to contact us.
I take pains to educate myself to the extent possible
about health concerns in this breed and to choose and test
breeding stock in a responsible way. The puppy contract
contains a health guarantee.
