Q. I want a puppy with a real curly coat. Will
puppy coats get curlier as they mature?
A. Yes. We have had puppies that left at 8 weeks
young to their news homes as wavy and the families were delighted to see
that when the pup matured the coat was a curly fleece. But if that is
not proof enough for you we do have our Rosebud which is the perfect
example of the coat changing to a gorgeous curly wool as she is growing.
Q. Do I need to place a deposit?
A. It is entirely up to you. Placing a deposit
assures you a pick from our current & upcoming litters. It is a
non-refundable deposit. You will be contacted when it is time to pick
out your puppy, which is at 6 weeks of age.
We require a $250 deposit and cannot hold a puppy
until I receive a deposit. I will allow five business days to receive
the deposit if you are mailing it -- if you think it will take longer to
get here, please let me know so that I do not think you have changed
Q. If I give you my deposit and I am the 3rd
on the waiting list, does this mean I get 3rd choice?
A. Yes, basically the 3rd person to give a deposit
would be 3rd in line for choice on a litter. But, the first person isn't
guaranteed "pick of the litter." We always reserve the right
to pick of the litter. For example, we might want to keep a pup. We also
try to match up puppies with their new families.
Q. Do you guarantee your dogs?
A. Yes. Every puppy comes with a health
guarantee...if you would like to review a copy of our health guarantee
please request to do so. All of our adult dogs are screened for genetic
defects. We will not breed a dog that is not breed standard and premium
quality. If the new owner suspects their puppy has a problem, they
should take the dog to their vet. If it is found to have a genetic
defect, the owner must present me with the Vet certificate, stating the
problem. I then will take the puppy to my Vet for a second opinion. The
owner pays all vet costs. If the diagnosis is the same from both Vets,
you return the puppy and we will then replace the puppy within the
guidelines of the contract.
Q. How do I house break my puppy?
A. First of all, with lots of patience… and
realize that a puppy's body is not mature enough for muscle control of
its bladder until it is 3 1/2 to 4 months of age. Tips and tricks:
PATIENCE, CONSISTENCY, AND ROUTINE! All puppies need their own secure
sleeping area (Crate). A puppy usually will not mess in their sleeping
area. Do not give a puppy food past
and No water past
Obviously, this time can be adjusted if it is very hot or the puppy has
had a big play time. This gives the puppy plenty of opportunity to be
able to go to bed with an empty bladder. Keep the puppy in site at all
times! After 20 minutes let the puppy outside and give the command, for
example "go potty."
Take puppy outside to “potty”:
• As soon as a puppy wakes up.
• Right after a puppy eats or drinks.
• After 20 minutes of playtime.
It doesn't take long for a puppy to learn. Make a
schedule for "potty time," playtime, eating, etc. When you
take the puppy outside always tell him "Outside." He then
learns the command. If you catch a puppy in the act of having an
accident in the house, pick him up mid-stream and say "no" in a firm tone. NEVER hit a puppy or rub a puppies nose in his own
mess. This does not teach the puppy anything good or positive. You can
show the puppy the pee smelling cloth (after you clean it up) and say
"No Potty in House." Then lovingly, but firmly take the puppy
and the cloth outside. Put the cloth on the ground and say "Go
Potty Outside." Let the puppy smell the cloth. Remember to watch
your puppy closely and recognize the "need" for him to go
