Your puppy:  from the time you make your reservation to when your puppy goes home ...

How to Reserve Your Puppy

1.  Please arrange for a time for a phone call. It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the person who is taking care of your puppy.

You can choose the gender you desire at the time of deposit. Some people have a gender preference; some do not.​​

3.  After you have made your deposit, and puppies have been born, downloadable puppy care articles will be available for you.

 

Please take the time to read them, as they contain information that will help you care for and keep your puppy healthy. 

5.  Please choose a veterinarian early on:

Do visit several veterinary offices located conveniently near your home in advance. Most importantly, make make sure the facility is clean.

 

Good off-street parking can help to keep your puppy safe. It is a big plus if they have a separate entrance (often called a "cat" door).
