When can I choose my puppy?
We'll ask for your top choices at six weeks of age and match puppies with families. First picks are reserved for the breeder. In the event that we do not have a puppy of your preferred gender, your deposit will be refunded. Puppies will be ready to go home at eight weeks of age.
The parents' hips, elbows and eyes have been checked.
Before going to their new homes, puppies will visit the veterinarian for health exams and their first immunizations. You'll receive a record of this visit.
All puppies are wormed three times.
They will also visit the ophthalmologist for their first eye exams.
For pet homes, please plan to enroll your puppy in a basic training class. Look for an AKC S.T.A.R. or Canine Good Citizen program in your community. For hunters, we can recommend pros in your area. The book Hup is a great introduction to training flushing dogs.
When you pick up your puppy, your folder will include an AKC registration form with your puppy's unique identification number. You will need this number and the PIN on the form to register your puppy by mail or online.
The puppies are fed Purina Pro Plan Puppy Chicken & Rice dry dog food, and we'll send some home with you. If you'd like to feed your puppy something else, we recommend mixing the two foods at first to ease the transition.
Balls are great for playing fetch. We recommend Nylabones for teething puppies. Offer a safe teether whenever the puppy chews on something they shouldn't. Avoid toys with squeakers or toys that encourage tug-of-war.
Please bring a collar and leash and perhaps a crate for longer trips. Please also bring water if you will be traveling far. If traveling by air, please contact your airline for their particular carry-on crate specifications.
