I take the responsibility of breeding puppies very seriously.  The bitches are whelped naturally in the house and I will sleep with them a week prior to whelping and stay with them until the pups are 3 weeks old.  I have my veterinarian on stand by during this period in case of any problems.  To date, all my litters have been whelped naturally  and no puppies have died.  I am hoping this will continue as my system of bitch preparation and post care seems to be working well.
The puppies health and weight is monitored regularly as is the bitches.
Once old enough, the pups start spending more time outside the box, interacting with us and exploring.  Closer to their departure, they go outside into a covered, weather proof area with access to lawn enclosure via ramps.  It is at this stage that the pups begin their toilet training, choosing to soil as far away from their den as possible.
When the pups are eight weeks old, they are evaluated for type and temperament and allocated to their new family.
Since  my 1st litter in 2008, only 2 puppies have been returned due to an autistic child being unable to cope and a child developing an allergy to dogs. Both pups were immediately rehomed and live happily ever after. 
In many parts of the world, Herding dogs continue to gather, herd and protect livestock, functions that they have performed since prehistoric times. But that's far from all they do. Today, some Herding breeds, such as the German Shepherd Dog, are commonly trained for police and protection work. Others, such as the  Border Collie, excel at competitive performance events. Because of their outstanding loyalty and intelligence, Herding dogs are prized as house dogs, watchdogs and companions.
Herding dogs specialize in rounding up livestock, finding strays and moving animals from one grazing area to another. They are
designed to tirelessly stalk and chase. Their high working drive and boundless energy are great for rounding up sheep, but dogs
 with these traits do not easily adapt to an undemanding lifestyle. Barking, heel nipping and nudging are normal herding
behaviors that may be seen as problems in a house pet.
