COTTONDOG OLD ENGLISH SHEEPDOGS

My husband "KC" & I are both animal lovers. Our Old English Sheepdogs are part of our family & live inside our home with us & our 2 children. Over 39 years ago I was blessed with my first Old English Sheepdog Megan. Her love & devotion stole my heart & OES have been the only breed I have owned & been owned by since with the exception of our beloved Jack Russell Terrier named Pudgey.
Our website is named after Cotton whom we bought when our children were toddlers. She was a very special girl. Our children both have autism and our daughter also has epilepsy. Cotton was a natural seizure alert dog & my daughter's companion. Tragically Cotton passed away in April 2007 a few days after being spayed. She was a special gift & her love for our family & especially our daughter will never be forgotten. She was the very best & we will love her always.
Our website was created to showcase our dogs & puppies for their new families. The information you will find here is just to help you get to know a little about us. I am very careful in selecting the families that our puppies will go to. I want us to get to know each other before agreeing to place a puppy as we will need to keep in touch & have a good relationship throughout the life of each puppy. Our goal with each & every puppy is to place it in the very best home possible. We breed for health & temperament & conformation always keeping the breed standard as our goal for exceptional, beautiful puppies. Owning an OES is a lifelong commitment not a spur of the moment decision. This is not the breed for everyone but once you have had your first one you will want no other. They are truly special & will hold your heart for the rest of your life.

About our Puppies:
Each one of our puppies are loved & spoiled from the moment they are born. Our house is always full of people who love & play with them everyday. When the puppies are 3 days old we begin the "Bio Sensor Super Puppy" program with them. When they are 3 weeks old we introduce a special goats milk formula to them & shortly after that begin to add in puppy food. They continue to nurse until mommy naturally weans them. They are checked for worms & parasites 3 times. We do not worm our puppies & would only do so if they tested positive for worms or parasites. We do things as naturally as possible as we feel this is healthier for our dogs & puppies. Our adults are healthy & eat a diet of high quality kibble & raw food. They have been on NuVet Plus vitamins for years as well as a few other nutritional supplements. I include more information on nutrition & health along with our recommendations in our puppy packet.
The puppies are brought from the bedroom into their very own large nursery in our house when they are 3 weeks old. We begin potty training the puppies to go outside when they are 4 weeks old, weather permitting. This gives them a good start & they prefer to do their "business" outside. I groom & brush them every day. They get at least 2 baths & I get them accustomed to the doggy dryer & all sorts of household noises. They spend time with us each day in other areas of the house & yard for individual & group attention & socialization. We also encourage our families to visit & spend as much time with the puppies as possible before they go home with them. We also take them for car rides. We keep a large crate without the door on it in the puppy room so they are familiar & comfortable with it. When the puppies are 8 or 9 weeks old we help our families choose the right puppy for them. We keep the puppies until they are at least 8 weeks old. Puppies are placed with Limited AKC registration except for those placed with a show contract. You are welcome to contact me for an adoption application & more information. We usually plan for 1 litter a year.
