The health of our dogs and puppies is important to us so we take every precaution to protect them. We are not open 24 -7. We only invite people to our home on Meet and Greet dates and at pick up which is always on the weekend.
My property is only open to those that are just as concerned as I am in getting 'their' puppy raised and ready to join 'their' family! That is the most important!
Unfortunately young puppies don’t have fully developed immune systems and are susceptible to life threatening illnesses, including Parvo AND even flu.
When diseases like Parvo or flu strike, these diseases can kill a whole litter very quickly in addition make my other dogs very sick as well. Disease germs can be carried on people’s clothing and shoes and even your car tires.
For this reason, we ask that you “visit” us online and get familiar with us. You may safely see our dogs and watch our puppies grow via Facebook and our website. We photograph and video often.
If you have paid a deposit for one of our puppies, you will be invited to come meet your puppy at about 5/6 weeks, At this time, we ask that you do not stop at places where dogs play or relieved. I ask you bring a clean pair of socks and/or slippers that are not worn in public. We will provide hand sanitizer and gloves to be sure they are safe. Remember, only PAID deposits will be visiting puppies. WE are not being secretive, just making sure we and our family are safe which includes puppies.
With our assistance after temperament testing , you will select the best puppy for you out of those who fit your life and home. Your puppy will be ready to leave at 8 weeks. If there are any schedule conflicts and you are unable to take your puppy home at that time , please let me know ahead of time and arrangements can be made. Any puppy needing to stay longer than 9 weeks of age will be required to pay a boarding fee to cover food, age appropriate vaccines, and additional deworm if needed. This boarding fee is $15 per day which is due at pick up.
AGAIN, when you come to meet and greet at 5/6 weeks of age, we ask that you do not visit other litters on the same day, or go places where there may have been dogs who you don’t know (pet stores, parks, rest areas, vet clinics, etc). Because this is my home where myself, my husband, and children reside, please be respectful and don't bring anyone except those in your immediate family (spouses, children, significant other). NO OTHER PETS ALLOWED.
Thank you for helping us protect the health of our puppies!
