Absolutely delightful, these puppies are soooo gorgeous its amazing really to think of such a tiny thing growing into such a huge dog.

I love these dogs ! such an intelligent breed and quick to learn, but definitely one for the experienced owner

How many weeks do you keep them before they are ready to be homed with their future families?

Puppies can go home anytime after 8 weeks old. Prior to that they have things to learn and accomplish with siblings and mother, such as bite inhibition. Right now Kepi is teaching the puppies to not just go up and eat out of another dog's food dish. That should help with preservation of the breed! ;->

No need to be an experienced owner before acquiring an Anatolian. What it DOES require is the willingness to learn and to provide appropriate containment (fencing), space, and care for the pup/dog. Good breeders will screen buyers for appropriateness of fit and go alongside approved puppy buyers with education and ongoing assistance with problem-solving and support for the life of the dog. My experience is that puppy buyers typically become good friends that last for the human lifetime as well. :-)

Thanks for your compliments and for taking the time to leave a comment and ask questions!
