PUPPY PHOTO UPDATES
Families adopting from us get to reserve a puppy and any special preferences such as male/female right away.
We recognize the excitement and anxiety of waiting for your puppy to go home with your family. To help, we post weekly photos of the litter. You can also follow along with the activities calendar to know what your puppy is doing each day.
PLAN A VISIT TO MEET THE PUPPIES
Families may schedule 30 minute private visits once the puppies reach 4 weeks old of age.
Play and interaction with our puppies fosters learning correct social behaviors. We will review guidelines during your visit. Keep in mind that your family is not able to choose an exact puppy until day of pick up once the puppies personalities are more developed at 8 weeks of age.
THOUGHT BEHIND THE GIFTS WE GIVE
We provide several free gifts for each puppy adopted. It is vital for the mental health of a new puppy to have mom's scent. Thus, we provide a blanket and toys to keep as his/her personal belongings with mom's scent.
It is important to slowly introduce a different type of dog food (if you choose to do so), thus we include a bag of our high quality puppy food.
It is natural for puppies to chew. So to save on your shoes and to help teach the proper things to chew on, we provide something appropriate for him/her to chew on.
SELECTING PUPPY AT PICK-UP
We allow the puppies to develop their individual personalities before matching a family with their puppy. Puppy individual preferences and traits are more obvious at 8 weeks of age.
Families may interact with each puppy (matching their sex and coat color reserved preference) available at the time of their visit. Thus, arriving earlier naturally offers more puppies to pick from. In the event, that there is only one puppy left matching sex preference, that puppy will be guaranteed to fulfil your reservation.
If it is important to be one of the first families to pick (typically for service dogs), upgrade to VIP Pick & Play.
If your preference is to pick up a day before normal pick up, upgrade to Early Pick Up.
