Welcome! The following information is provided to help clear up any questions you may have in purchasing a puppy.
Our puppies are all raised inside our home. They are played with and loved and are brought up around kids, cats and other dogs. Most parts of Puppy Culture Program is used to help ensure a well-rounded, confident puppy. All our dogs here eat “raw” but the puppies are raised on commercial puppy food. Please continue to provide a high quality food for your puppy – the pay off is HUGE!
All our dogs and puppies are AKC registered and from champion lines. We do not sell to pet stores, brokers nor for breeding purposes. They are sold to be loving family members – AKC papers are filled out at pick up time. A check from you to AKC will be needed to register your puppy (currently $34.99) and papers will be sent directly to you from AKC.
We do not require a detailed profile filled out for you to purchase a puppy, but do ask to hear about you and your family and how the pup will live. Your current vet information will be needed as reference. We reserve the right to refuse sale for any reason.
All puppies are checked by our vet when tails/dew claws are done -around 3-4 days of age -and again at 7 weeks of age. Puppies come with vet signed health certificate. They are wormed every 2 weeks and receive their first puppy shot at 7 weeks of age. They will need two more vaccinations from your vet before they are immune to parvo, distemper, etc. Do not take your puppy to dog parks, pet stores, etc. before all shots are completed. Also, carry your puppy into vet and place on sanitized table.
We do not ship puppies in cargo! Shipping of pets is against the law for ANY breeder having more than 4 females – unless they are USDA licensed! The new law requires that only USDA licensed breeders can sell puppies “sight unseen” and that buyer/seller/pup must meet in person. USDA license rules are set up for large commercial breeders and would not allow us to raise our puppies in our home – which we feel is important. We are willing to meet you at the airport to carry your puppy home or drive up to 2 hours to meet you – both for the cost of gas only. We feel this is the safest, most humane way to deliver our babies. You are ALWAYS welcome to come visit.
A deposit will hold your puppy. All deposits are non-refundable. Please be aware that no deposit is returned if you have circumstances that do not allow you to complete the purchase. The deposit is applied to the total cost or can be transferred towards a future puppy. If something happens where the puppy is not available, the deposit would be returned.
References are available from previous puppy purchasers and our family veterinarian, upon request. We are always available to help answer any questions you may have in purchasing or caring for your puppy.
