OLDER PUPPY-DOG PROGRAM BASICS
In response to the increased number of requests for older puppies and dogs we decided to incorporate an older puppy and dog program into our breeding program. The guidelines and prices below pertain to the puppies that are in the older puppy program only.
Deposits currently accepted on a puppy of your choice from one of our up-coming planned litters or on a puppy currently available. The puppy purchase agreement will differ in the amount of deposit required to hold a regular puppy for the older puppy program due to the amount of work and time involved. The regular puppy purchase Guarantee-Contract will be the same as the baby puppy purchase Guarantee-Contract. Older puppy deposits and purchases are non-refundable but may be transferred to another available puppy or litter if necessary, as long as it is done following the guideline in our Guarantee-Contract. In the event puppy deposits are forfeited, we will attempt to place the puppy into another loving pet home as soon as possible. We have priced the puppy plans according to the time, work, and effort we will have in raising the older puppy and in maintaining and improving our facilities to accommodate the older puppy program.
Puppies will come crate, leash, and collar trained. We cannot make absolute guarantees beyond our facilities but our older puppy program supports home potty training transitions. Actual home potty training differs per new owner and must remain the new owner's responsibility in accordance with personal lifestyles, etc. Training beyond basic crate, leash, and collar is the new owner's responsibility and is to be done once the new owner takes possession of the puppy. Most pet owners enjoy and take great pride in training their own puppies in basic training like sit, stay, roll over, high five etc etc. New Owners should expect that their new older puppy may need some adjustment time when transitioning from our facility to their new environment/home. Some puppy-dogs may need more adjustment time than others. Just as human children do when entering day care or public school for the first time etc. This is normal. Love, patience, and consistency will be needed.
Older puppy price will vary according to litter and initial "Baby Puppy Purchase Price".
