The health of our dogs and puppies is important to us so we take every precaution to protect them.
Unfortunately young puppies don’t have fully developed immune systems and are susceptible to life threatening illnesses, including Parvo.
When diseases like Parvo strike, they can kill a whole litter in a matter of hours. Disease germs can be carried on people’s clothing and shoes.
Most of our adult dogs live in guardian homes, and only come to our home when they're having pups.
When you come to pick up your puppy we ask that you not visit other litters on the same day, or go places where there may have been dogs who you don’t know.
We require you place a deposit on a puppy before visiting because many families will kennel hop when they are puppy "shopping". I understand you may want to look for that perfect puppy before committing however I will not put my puppies at risk. That being said we welcome home visits and encourage you to come and see your puppy and our home when picking up your baby.
It would be irresponsible of us as breeders to allow people to come, and play with our puppies and possibly infect puppies that have already been sold, so when you visit my home you will only see available puppies. All other puppies will be kept in our Nursery.
Thank you for helping us protect the health of our puppies!
*Children must be supervised by their parents at all times. They must be seated when holding the puppies. Only pups not already spoken for from the litter you are choosing from may be handled.
If you are purchasing a puppy as a companion for your family and a family pet, please know ahead of time if your pet gets along well with other animals. Most dogs are kind to puppies but a few are not. We do not allow other dogs on our property. A "getting to know you" type of situation could result in a puppy being harmed. In addition, we are very careful not to have any diseases brought to our home by another dog/pet.
Like most breeders, we do not allow visitors to tour our home even though you are more than welcome to come here. It is too easy to introduce germs to our home We are not a kennel facility. We are a home. We would be happy to show you our moms and dads when available. We normally have the parents of our puppies running around the house or yard, unless they are with guardian families.
THERE ARE NO BATHROOM FACILITIES AVAILABLE
Please stop in town before coming to my home.
We recommend the book How To Raise The Perfect Dog by Cesar Milan
This talks about common problems such as jumping up as well as the misconception of wanting to pick the puppy that runs up to you, sits in your lap and starts licking you. Come to find out, this is actually a sign of a dominate puppy...hmmmm
We also recommend How to Raise a puppy you can live with.
We will also devise to meet part way if needed for an additional fee. We also have Sharon, whom works for our vet, that will help with puppy deliveries.
