Are Your Puppies Truly 2nd or 3rd Generation NR??

It has come to my attention over the last couple of years that many Natural Rearing breeders are breeding their second or third generation (or even multi-generational)NR bitches to CR (Conventionally Reared) stud dogs!  WHY? There are just not enough NR males available for stud it would appear.  This should not be!  How can one say their puppies are second or third or what ever generation NR, when the sire was NOT NR at all, only the Dam was? And then the puppy families are totally confused and don’t understand why their puppy is not the thriving, emotionally and physically sound puppy...

True Natural Rearing Breeders Don’t

True Natural Rearing Breeders             Don’t vaccinate… Some of us actually abhor the very act of immunization. We are aware of the effects of injecting a virus into our dogs, thus putting a virus directly into the bloodstream that normally enters only through the mouth, respiratory system, etc., thus bypassing the entire primary immune response that occurs in the mucous membranes.  We refuse to  put cells of other animals into our dogs – because so called “modified live” virus vaccines are made from viruses grown in the cells of another species. We have done...
