Puppy Purchasing Information:
Puppies are available to prescreened and approved homes only. See our Puppy Application to get started with this process. Puppies are available strictly on limited AKC registration with a spay/neuter agreement.
Our puppies are raised in our home. They are in our family room so they are close to all kinds of interaction and normal home noises and activities. The puppies are handles daily and exposed to other dogs, children, strangers, sounds, new items, obstacles and challenges to keep them interested and interacting. They are raised using Puppy Culture protocol and have been daily since birth. Our kennel uses Puppy Culture Protocol to its fullest up until they are homed. We encourage our puppy parents to continue with the program and we are available for advice if needed. The puppies will be pee pad trained as soon as they can move off their bed and travel on their own. They will be exposed to a potty tray with paper pellets next a little farther from their bed. When the are bigger they will have a pine shaving area to potty in. As soon as they are big enough they will have outside time with potty training focus. We will begin crate training mildly at 7 weeks and increase door closing etc as they are ready. Pups will be groomed including clipping toenails at about 4-5 days, bath, dryers and clipping when they are old enough. Faces, feet and tail base, weekly. This will be a part of their lives and need to be maintained for life.
Parents have been genetically health tested. We will offer a health guarantee to cover those genetic diseases that can be tested for as recommended for the breed type.
