Haus of Blues Puppy Information
Haus of Blues, LLC is an AKC Registered, Blue Great Dane Breeder in Southern Arizona. All of our animals are raised indoors with two pre-teen boys, two adults and a cat who owns the place but doesn’t have a job.
Haus of Blues will always take back Great Danes that were purchased from our kennel, no questions asked. It is our hope that none of our puppies ever be turned in to a shelter. Furthermore, Haus of Blues will do whatever is possible and reasonable to ensure the welfare of these animals.
That being said, refunds will not be given on returns unless there is a genetic, health related issue which we are directly responsible for. Any such issues must be verified, in person, by a licensed veterinarian qualified to diagnose issues of this kind.
Great Dane Beds
When you own a Great Dane, you need a Great Dane sized bed. Sherry Wonderling makes custom beds with memory foam. They are made with fleece covering, which the dogs can’t chew. Beds are on sale for only $65!
The awesome Dr. Noble Jackson
Puppies come with a vet check from Dr. Noble Jackson, the best vet we have ever had. They will also come with first shots and deworming. If you have questions or concerns, please call him at (520) 508-7425.
Puppies are prone to worms, so if they use the bathroom and you see worms, that is usually the dewormer working. If you see worms, please take your puppy into the Vet. Worms in a puppy can zap their little resources very quickly and it can become a dire situation very fast.
Your puppy’s first shots will be Distemper, Measles, Parainfluenze and Bordatella. They will need their 3 week boosters when you get them.
Please do not miss their shots. To see your puppy’s shot schedule, see our calculator.
Remember, you can take your puppy out to places but you will have the hold him/her. They are not fully vaccinated against some very deadly diseases until 16 weeks of age. If you need to or want to take them to like PetSmart, put down puppy pads or a blanket from home on the bottom of the cart and cart them around. Blankets will likely stay in place better than the puppy pads. We love these blankets, as do our dogs and puppies.
Goin’ for a ride
Train that Baby
If your Dane is having diarrhea try these things:
- Add pumpkin puree to their food. Make sure you do not get the Pumpkin Pie ready mix! That has spices already in it for making pies. You want pure Pumpkin Puree. Add 1/4 cup per 1 cup of dog food. You will probably not want to free feed during this time so you can monitor I/O (intake/output). Give it a few days and see how your pup does. If your dog is having severe diarrhea, get them to the Vet obviously. What do I mean by severe? Really watery that they can’t hold, with almost no solids. That requires immediate veterinary assistance. Other signs you need to get to the vet are:
- Vomiting with the diarrhea
- Bloody, dark or tarry stools
- Inability to throw up/dry heaving with heavy panting and clearly uncomfortable
- If you have a young puppy, it is always best to get them into the Vet when they have diarrhea because their little systems are not fully immune quite yet
- Opposite to that, an elderly dog. With diarrhea, an elderly dog can take a turn for the worse very quickly
- Post-op vomiting or diarrhea
- If the pumpkin does not work after a few days or you feel that your dog needs more than just pumpkin, add a 1/4 of white rice.
- You can also add a little boiled white chicken breast with NO bones.
- Some vets recommend Pedialyte to keep their electrolytes in balance. I prefer Smart Water as it does not taste as nasty. That said, you can add the Pedialyte to the food mixture and the pumpkin puree may be strong enough to mask the taste. There is now an electrolyte powder, in case you want to keep something in your house, just in case. I have never tried it though.
- Lastly, I like to add Activa for the probiotics. I do it for my moms to be and nursing mothers as well as my puppies to assist with gut heath. Vanilla or plain is always best but for adult dogs, I have personally had issues with any of the fruit flavors.
