About Jean & John
The most important thing I can tell you is that I have a passion for caring for dogs, I have my own dogs, a Staffordshire bull terrier named Lucky, a Pug/Shih Tzu named Bailey and a Pug named Alice. My daughter and son both have Pugs named Caesar and Tia. Tia has recently given birth to 5 baby pugs. The reason I am informing you of this is that most (not all) of my experience will be easier to refer to them personally. I have always had dogs, in my lifetime I have raised a German Shepherd and Spaniels but have also cared for Mongrels, Jack Russell’s, a Labrador and a sheepdog. I do not necessarily have a preference I find all of them unique in their own way; just like children they have their own personalities. Not only have I had experience with my own pride and joys but I regularly care for others, when their owners are at work
I believe one of the most important things to consider when caring for dogs is that they are just like people; they have regular eating times, always have access to water. My dogs have daily walks over the park, or when weather does not permit we have exercise sessions in the house, by playing fetch, chase and performing little tricks. I have trained them all from puppies so this seems to work well for us. Although all of my dogs require general grooming including nail trimming, baths and hair trims Bailey requires the most, she needs haircuts weekly and is groomed on a daily basis.
As Tia breeded puppies and I had my own for so long, there have been times of which I have needed to administer medicine, Caesar suffers from acid reflux and therefore needs to medicate daily. Lucky is a survivor of cancer and I cared for her throughout her treatments. Tia recently gave birth to 5 puppies and since has been treated for Mites. Ensuring that all five puppies were feeding and growing appropriately was crucial. Tia had a natural birth at home and I was extremely aware of the importance of the cleanliness,
