Heading into spring with some exciting new things happening.......
We have a few breedings planned for the spring/summer. We aren’t currently accepting new applications but expect to open back up May 1st for Fall/winter litters. Once open, we will take applications on a first come first served basis and only as many as we think we can accommodate in a 6-9 month period.
Things to consider:
Not everyone that applies is accepted. (We will let you know though) Our screening process is thorough. We are a small breeder and our focus is first and foremost our own program-breeding and comfort/therapy dogs. There are many breeders that just sell puppies and we are happy to refer you. But, that’s not us! We typically have 4-6 puppies available per litter. You should expect to wait AT LEAST 6 months from when you apply.
We do NOT sell puppies on full registration (with breeding rights) Our puppies are sold with a spay/neuter contract. We’ve worked very hard at creating a program we are proud of and we don’t take that lightly. Our breeding dogs are carefully selected based on many factors and we are happy to discuss those with new families. A tremendous amount of research goes into each breeding!
Our girls are only bred 2-3 times. We believe that though they love being mamas, there is much more ahead for them with most going into therapy “jobs”. They have enormous potential. Though we have a couple stud dogs in our program, you won’t see them being used over and over. Again, breeding is only a part of who they are. We may have a couple litters with a boy, or we may decide that he’s not a suitable prospect. Our goal is to improve our program with each breeding and keep it diverse. In most cases we will use a proven outside male.
We do a tremendous amount of research to find the appropriate stud dogs for our girls based on what we want for our program. Our lists are quite long; don't wait if you're interested. Please keep in mind that we reserve the right to keep a pup/puppies first from each litter.
******If you have been wait-listed please contact us to confirm your placement on appropriate litter*****
Important Info Regarding Puppy Placement
We take what we do very seriously and carefully vet all prospective puppy owners thoroughly.
The first step after we receive your inquiry is completing our questionnaire. It gives us a lot of information about you and your lifestyle and helps us help you pick the puppy that is the best fit for your family.
Once reviewed, we will set up a time for your family to come out and visit with us and the dogs. This is a required meeting and all family members must be present. We prefer speaking directly to telephone calls.
Assuming all goes well, you are invited to place a deposit which will secure your place (and pick number) on the list.
When the litter is born, you will be notified. If we are unable to accommodate you, you will be given the option of moving your deposit to the next litter or receiving a refund.
Visits are not scheduled in the two weeks before delivery date or for the first 3 weeks after puppies arrive.
Please keep in mind that this process typically takes place well before puppies are born. Our wait-lists are generally quite long. By the time the puppies arrive, they usually have all been promised. If you are interested in a puppy do not wait.
We build relationships and invite you into our family. We do not simply sell puppies.
Deposits are non-refundable if YOU cancel.
We reserve the right at ANY time and for ANY reason to cancel the agreement.
