We breed our champion show dogs in order to obtain future quality champion show dogs for ourselves. Since we can't keep and show them all we sell the others to the best homes we can find. While we are raising our puppies we do the following which benefits the owners of the puppies we sell:
1. Train them to potty in pine shavings in a specific area outdoors 2. Overnight them in crates so they are used to sleeping in them 3. Take them for walks on leashes 4. Take them for car rides 5. Socialize them with children, adults and older dogs 6. Encourage "eye" contact for future training ease 7. We have playground equipment for them to learn with 8. Most important we let them be healthy, happy, fun puppies.
We rarely let puppies go to new homes before 9-10 weeks of age. It's better for them & their new owners.
We typically offer a two-year health guarantee on our puppies. There are some rules and some exceptions. When the puppies leave us they are up to date (UTD) on shots and having been wormed and micro-chipped. New owners must take them to their vet within a 14 day period to have them checked.
We do not encourage early spay/neuter. In fact, if the dog is spayed or neutered before they are 2 years old it automatically voids the health guarantee with few exceptions: A female can be neutered after her first season if she is at least 18 months old, other exceptions are on an individual basis. I will provide links to articles that explain the newer theories on why dogs should not be spayed / neutered early.
