What supplies do I need for my new puppy?
It depends a lot on how you want to train your puppy, house training, ect.. but here is a list of things that we like to have here.
Food & water dish, Royal Canin Mini Puppy Food
Treats (we like Bil Jac Treats best), NuVet Supplements (can be used as treats also)
Leash, collar and/or harness
Toys (No Rawhide or anything that can be swallowed)
Snuggle Puppy or clock in sock or something to snuggle with
Crate; if crate training
Wee Wee Pads
Expen or also called excercise pen/play pen (we use one inside the house and one outside for a potty area)
Baby Gates to keep the puppy in a certain area of your home until house trained fully Vinegar water or some type of cleaner in case of an accident
Puppy shampoo & conditioner (we like to use either Chris Christensen or Pure Paws products you can google them online)
A couple towels for puppy
Straight toothed comb & brush
Vet phone number on hand and appointments scheduled for routine vaccinations
I like to keep a bag packed for the car when we travel:
Water & Water Bowl
Light Weight Collar & Light Weight Long Leash
What shots will my puppy have?
Each puppy will come with their own individual vaccination and deworming record that you will need to take to your vet for their first initial checkup. This will let the vet know what he will need to follow up on. Your new puppy will need to be kept up to date on his booter vaccines, just like a human baby. We start each puppy here with the following:
Deworming scheduled for every 2 weeks at minimum.
5-6 weeks of age they get a NeoPar Shot. This is a high titer Parvo Vaccination. & Kennel Cough.
8 weeks of age they get a 6 way. Parvo, Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Parianfluenza & Corona.
If we still have the puppy past 8 weeks we do follow up boosters every 3 weeks until they are 17 weeks of age. And regular routine de-wormings. Rabies is given at 12 weeks or older.
Can we come see the puppies?
We do completely understand the need to want to see the babies in person. But there are several factors we must take in consideration. We do not allow anyone to come out to see the puppies until they are at least 6-7 weeks old. Before this time they are still with their mothers and just like us, the momma's get a little nervous when there are strangers coming in and out looking at their babies and touching them and taking them from them when they are wanting to keep them all together and protect them until weaning age. Just think about what it would be like if you had these babies and were a little dog and you had all these different people coming into your space, hovering over you and touching your babies. I've seen the look in their eyes and as their owner I just want to protect them from that fear of "what's going on?" Another factor that plays a roll in this is diseases, you may have walked somewhere previously and not known it but may have picked something up on your shoes or even clothing. Our puppies generally get vaccinated at 6 weeks of age so for their protection they need to be vaccinated first before being handled or seen. Any puppies that are already sold will not be available for viewing as they are already spoken for and we are protecting someone else's pet at that point. Most of our puppies are chosen by the pictures and/or video's we send out. And a lot of times they are sold by the time they are 6 weeks old. I know that makes it hard for those of you looking to come out and pick out a puppy. With the way the demand, technology, laws and times have changed it just makes it nearly impossible to be able to choose a puppy in this way any longer without missing out on the puppy you originally thought you wanted. I understand this is hard for some, we totally get it... But to make sure we can get all of our puppies placed in loving homes safely this is just the way it is. If you were to come out before they were 6 weeks old the only thing you really would be seeing is what colors they were or how they compared to size in the litter, which you can see in pictures or speaking with me. A puppies eyes don't open till they are 2 weeks old, then ears open at 3 weeks, visual site improves by 4 weeks.... they are just sleeping alot up to this point because it takes so much energy to grow. Personality really doesn't start to come out till they are 7 weeks and older, after they leave momma, then sometimes that changes after they get in their new homes and they adapt your rules and boundaries. A deposit must be placed on a puppy before we will allow you to come out. No exceptions! This is transferable to another puppy if you so choose another puppy that is available at the time you visit. This insure's you are not waisting my time away from my dogs/puppies and family, helps give a little extra security that you are not a thief or criminal and that you are serious about the commitment. Deposits can be transferred to future litters as well.
Are the puppies potty trained?
Our puppies are started on potty pad / paper training. Some introduction to the crate is started upon their leaving. Here is a link to the local trainers for more information on house breaking:
Why are your puppy prices what they are?
When you purchase a puppy from us you are choosing a puppy from a legal, licensed, professional breeder. To be a legal licensed professional breeder in the State of Missouri takes a lot of time, money, love and passion for the breed. When you purchase a puppy from us you are not bringing home a puppy from a backyard breeder, illegal breeder, a flipper, hobby breeder or just someone trying to make a buck. You are bringing home a puppy that comes to you from loving hands that is healthy, fully vaccinated, fed a high quality food from the beginning for the best start, vet checked, health guaranteed, healthy parents and from a breeder who understands that puppy's background and where it came from, socialized and loved from day one, someone who sat beside momma while she was birthing and helped each baby take their first breath of life.
It's not cheap raising quality, healthy puppies. Our puppies are worth it!
