    wow. thats taking on a crazy amount of work! is there a reason you have three puppies?

    make sure each dog has their own crate and that you train AND socialise them seperately. this means they need daily on one day, training and bonding with you as well as time with you off the property meeying new dogs/people/sights/sounds/smells.

    you reallly really really need to be honest about if you have time and energy and a set up to care for three dogs. these are three individual dogs needing tons of your time. tons. raising one puppy makes people break down in tears and seems never ending, but three? this is not about questionning your abilities but there are just so many hours in a day, even the best of trainers/puppy raisers takes on one at a time.

    this is a great time to rehome a pup and keep just one. the fact that the pups are available and free doesnt mean you should keep them all. many more very expensive vet apts will need to be made, three rounds of ahots x3, spay/neuter x 3 (i assume they all not all male or all female?)

    is this your first puppy? them good decision, puppies are a crazy amount of work. two or three at once would be be enough to give even an experienced dog owner a break down (not jokimg here.) it would also be super expensive.

    i will get you some links/info after my day at the office. some important items: crate training and signing up for puppy classes.

    more info to come.

    I think the best advice to give would be to find homes for 2 of those pups.
