Our pups spend the first 2-ish weeks in our home, in our guest bedroom, so that we can sleep next to them and monitor them 24 hours a day. After that, they are moved into one of the whelping rooms over at the kennel, which is closely temperature controlled and can be monitored with our camera system which also has night vision. These rooms have special walls that can be hosed or wiped down, easy clean floors, hot water and a floor drain in each room so that it can easily be kept sanitary. Pups are in these rooms exclusively until they start to follow mom out the doggie door to the puppy play yard at age 4-5 weeks.
