Frequently Asked Questions

How much are puppies?

Puppies are $3,500. This includes a two-year health guarantee against congenital health problems, deworming, the first round of core vaccines administered by a licensed veterinarian during a thorough physical examination, and microchip.They will also have been registered with the ALAA.

Can I have the option of not spaying or neutering my puppy?

No. Before going home, you are required to sign a contract with SpaySecure which will enforce your agreement to spay or neuter your puppy before they turn one year old.

Can we visit before we decide?

Yes, please fill out the contact form and I will set up an appointment with you.

What kind of food is recommended?

We encourage you to feed your puppy a premium dog food designed for puppies that is AAFCO appproved. By the time they go home, we feed the puppies dry dog food in the morning, because it is somewhat laxative and we want them to be able to make it through the night. At lunch and dinner, we give them homemade food containing a lot of beef, eggs, and poultry with some fish and dog vitamins added. We give them a variety for optimum nutrition, and so that they will be able to tolerate a range of different foods.

What do I do when I get home with my puppy?

Book recommendations:

Some things to have on hand when your puppy comes home: Some items to have at home:
1. premium puppy food (AAFCO appproved) and dog bowls for food and water. Dog bowls are less likely to be overturned than kitchen bowls. I like to put them on a rubber boot tray to catch spills.
2. some way to confine your puppy safely, like a dog crate, when not directly supervised.
3. chew toys (Kong is my personal favorite because it won't break down easily and get ingested).
4. high value treats for training. Personally, I feed my young puppies by hand and insist on various compliances before each reward.
5. collar, leash. I like a harness for walks so there is less pressure on the puppy's neck, but the puppy won't be ready for extensive exercise at first.
6. metal comb for keeping hair from matting.
7. either pet nail scissors, or better, a nail grinder.
8. doggie toothpaste, usually chicken flavored enzymatic toothpaste, and a dedicated toothbrush..
