How do I pick my puppy?
We are happy to help you pick out your puppy. We let our customers pick in the order the deposits are made. If you are looking for a puppy with a certain temperament (hunting, good with kids, etc.) we can help you out there too! We spend a lot of time getting to know our puppies so we can match them to their new owners.
How do I pay for my puppy?
We prefer payment through PayPal (a link is provided at the bottom of the page) or a check. We need $100 (non-refundable) for a deposit. All puppies are $500. The balance must be paid by the time the puppy is 7 weeks old. Your deposit is non-refundable and goes towards your total. The balance for the puppy is non-refundable after the puppy is 8 weeks old.
Do you do any vet care for the puppies?
We remove dew claws when the puppies are 3 days old. The mother and puppies are wormed at 2, 4 and 6 weeks old. Your vet will need to continue this treatment. We also begin the vaccination process for your puppy. We give your puppy Duramone Max 5 which is a Canine Distemper - Adenovirus Type 2-Parainfluenza-Parvovirus Vaccine at 6 and 8 weeks. You will need to consult your veterinarian to finish the vaccination process and get a rabies shot for your puppy.
Do you provide health guarantees?
Yes. We have a 1 year health guarantee against any genetic health issue and a 2 year hip guarantee.
What do you feed a puppy?
We have started your puppy on Diamond Puppy Chow. We suggest that for the first week you continue to use that brand. If you decide to switch brands later follow the directions on the bag of food to help with this transition. A puppy 8 weeks old needs about 1 cup of food twice per day. As it grows it will need more. Watch your puppy and follow it's signals. If it cleans up it's food and is looking for more, it's time to increase the amount!
Are your puppies AKC registered?
All of our puppies are AKC registered.
