Visitation Policy and proceeding with purchase
Please keep in mind this is our home. We are not a business location, we are a family. With school age children our days, and especially our weekends are very busy. Our first priority is the safety of our children, dogs and puppies.
We sometimes get asked why we don't allow visits to our pups until one week prior the pick day at 8-9 weeks old. This is not surprising given the number of 'what to do when buying a dog websites that advocate for visiting the breeder and meeting the pup's parents first. The problem with these sites is their priority is the buyer, not the pups' or breeders' health and safety.
***We deal only with serious buyers that are ready to add a family member and know that they want to proceed with purchasing puppy. We may ask you for a deposit in advance of your visit to show good fait and intention to purchase - your deposit may be refundable if not applies to the purchase of a puppy.***
We welcome visitors to meet the parents BEFORE we have puppies on the ground, or starting at 7 weeks old if we feel that puppies are ready to go home at 8 weeks old.
Safety of the Pups:
Pups immune systems are very immature. Many unsuspecting visitors have brought disease (parvovirus, distemper, etc) with them when visiting pups, the result of which is the death of the entire litter. We were lucky enough to have never had this disease on our property! I however
personally know several breeders that have lost entire litters to parvovirus brought in by visitors.
What we require:
You will be asked to leave you shoes outdoors, sanitize your hands thoroughly (especially those of children) and bring no pets with you-not even those that might remain in your car.
You will also be asked where you are coming from and if you visited ANY other dog facilities before stepping on our property.
Unborn puppies require an upfront deposit non refundable deposit.
Ready to go home puppies: you can come visit, choose your puppy, pay in full and pick up the puppy that same day.
or; if not picking up that same day:
Pay a non refundable deposit and fill out a reservation form to secure said puppy and come back no later than 72 hours to pick up your puppy.
We dedicate up to 30 minutes allotted time for clients to choose their puppy- as we are a busy family with many activities and always on the go :-)
Clients are not allowed in the nursery area but you are welcome to check out the rest of our facility.
You can view some of our past puppies on our Facebook page and here, and moreover, we will go out of our way and offer you a LIVE VIDEO CONFERENCE (click)
with Facetime so you can view the puppies in real time if you live in another state and can't visit in person before reserving your puppy.
