Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I bring my dog to your house when I come?
A: We do not permit other dogs to come for visits. We have this policy for several reasons:
Q. Is it safe to bring my puppy out in public, after picking him/her up?
A. Your puppy will have at least one set of puppy shots before leaving our home. Please discuss this concern with your vet and be sure to bring his vaccination records. According to some vaccine manufacturers, it may take 7-21 days for the puppy to develop immunity from the date of his first vaccine.
Q: What do I need to buy or do before picking up my puppy?
A: Please read our Checklist below. We will provide you with up to date Puppy Notes, to let you know what the puppy is currently eating, his/her daily routine, vaccination and health information. Please do the following puppy "homework" below in advance.
Checklist of items to have and things to do BEFORE coming to pick up your puppy.
Purchase before picking up your puppy (please don't wait to go shopping on your way home from picking him/her up):
I do not recommend introducing them to a collar, harness or leash or dressing them in cute clothes until they have gotten used to their new people and home. They will be adjusting to their new home and adding these new sometimes scary things, will be upsetting. Once they have adjusted (after a few days), please read about Leash Training in the Article section of our Health page.
There will be some paperwork to fill out when you come. Please read it before you come by clicking here, and don’t hesitate to ask any questions.
Please plan for your pickup appointment to take 30 minutes. It doesn’t always take that long, but I want to be sure and allow enough time to answer any questions you might have. We have fun taking a going away picture with you and your new puppy, to share on our Facebook page, but if you are not comfortable with that, you are welcome to say no.
