Puppy Reservations for

Upcoming Litters

Upon approval of your submitted puppy questionnaire for an unborn litter, we will accept early deposits in the amount of $100.00 prior to the litter being born to secure your place on the list until the litter is born.  We will accept deposits via Venmo, Applepay, PayPal, or by mailing in a personal check.  We will discuss instructions for making a deposit through private communication upon acceptance of the questionnaire.

 

It has been our sad experience that people don't always understand that we have no control over what color puppies will be born, how many of each gender, or the foresight for any potential problems.  We have had families get angry with us because a puppy of their color and gender wasn't born.  This is supposed to be fun for us.  We have real jobs and own businesses that stress us out - the kennel is something we do for our own pleasure and love for AKC competitions and the Brittany breed. Take note: We have an active relationship with God and talk/pray to Him daily.  He has an ultimate plan for everything which does not always include what we plan for, anticipate, ask for, or intend.  We will meet your requests for SPECIFIC litter, gender and color preferences....God willing - and He usually does grant a very large portion of our waitlisted party's wishes as we only waitlist a certain number of people for each litter.  If at any time throughout our process, you can not be kind, considerate, non-demanding, and polite, you will no longer be a candidate for one of our puppies.   

 

If we do have a puppy or puppies that meet your specific litter, gender, and color requirements, you may select a puppy from the puppy or puppies available to you.  Should there be any reason that you are unable to accept the puppy that meets your requirements for litter, color and gender after paying a deposit, your deposit may be transferred to a different upcoming litter or any other available puppy that we have within one year.  We will not offer refunds of the deposit if there is a puppy born that meets your litter, gender, and color requirements.  We only offer deposit transfers in this situation.

 

In the event we can not provide a puppy that meets your litter, color, and gender requirements, we will
1) offer other puppies of different color and/or gender from your preferred litter should there be puppies available 

(or)

2) you can opt for your deposit to be transferred to a different upcoming litter or puppy that is available

(or) 

3)we will offer to refund your deposit.  

 

We pride ourselves on being fair and ethical in all situations.  If you have questions or concerns about our upcoming litter deposit policy please feel free to contact us.

If we are able to meet your litter, gender, and color preferences after you have been approved after completing our puppy questionnaire, and you have made a deposit, our next official contact will be once puppies have reached approximately 10 days old.  Puppies are born with their eyes and ears sealed shut, they can not walk. they can not bark, and they do not have teeth. The first ten days is a critical time for the puppies and a high level of care is required.  We wait until the 10 day old mark to make official contact to enable us to be confident that all puppies have made it through the critical time.  Once the litter has been deemed stable, we will be in contact with the litter announcement/preparation email which will discuss all things puppy and prepare you for bringing one of our puppies home.  We will update you with photos as the puppies grow approximately every 12-14 days until they are ready to go to their new homes.

Upon revealing the initial photos, we will ask you for your top preferences of the puppies that are available to you.  We will watch the puppies grow and work with you and your family throughout the growing process to ensure the puppy you ultimately take home is one that you are happy with and one that we consider a perfect match for your family.  We will stay in contact with you as the puppy grows to let you know of any personality changes that we feel are important. We have over two decades of raising and selecting puppies for ourselves as well as for our new families and we are extremely familiar with each developmental phase and can tell at a very early age who will be the alpha, and who will be the middle of the road puppies (not alpha).  We are not hard core.  As mentioned, this is supposed be fun for everyone involved. We are accommodating and our goal is that you take home a puppy who you are happy with - we will work with you until you are satisfied with your puppy.   Please note that upon continuing the reservation of a puppy, an additional deposit will need to be made to meet the full deposit of an available/born puppy.  The full reservation deposit for a puppy that has been born is 1/4-1/2 of the total puppy cost.  The remaining balance will be due at the time of pick up or 2 weeks prior to flight.

If you are interested in the pick of the litter puppy, we always have 1-2 pick of the litter puppies from each gender depending on the litter size.  These puppies will be priced higher than standard pick puppies.  If you prefer the pick of the litter option, you will have the opportunity to select a puppy from every puppy in the litter that is of your preferred gender.  Pick of the litter option is typically $250 additional to the puppy price or up to $500 for a national champion sired litter.  Please contact us if you have questions about pick of the litter.  Pick of the litter to us is a puppy that has exceptional conformation, carries itself proudly with it's head and tail head high, it is inquisitive and confident, but not aloof, and enjoys interaction with people and new things.  We like them adventurous and bold, personable, biddable, and quick to learn - all the things we look for in a competition dog.

Every litter is unique and we determine release dates based on litter maturity and when the mother is ready to leave.  Most mothers completely ween the babies approximately 3 weeks after they get their teeth.  She typically stops wanting to be with them around the age of 6 weeks old.  Once the mother has weened them, sh does leave them and typically wants very little to do with them afterwards.  We schedule pickup dates after the puppies have been weened at the age of 6.5 weeks - 8 weeks of age.  The preparation email will outline pickup dates for your specific litter, will discuss food, toys, vet visits, training, health insurance, microchips, AKC registration, final payment, flights, and other topics to fully prepare you and your family for one of our premium puppies.

All of our puppies come with a 26 month health guarantee against genetic defects.  All puppies will be sold with dewclaws removed, tails docked, and veterinary professional grade vaccinations at the 6 week old mark, as well as dewormer, and external pest control as needed starting at birth.  If your puppy will be flying to your destination, we will fly puppies at 8 weeks old.  The airfare, crate, veterinary health certificate, and our 400 mile round trip travel to the airport is usually $385 if we can use Delta or American Airlines.   If we are forced to use United because of temperatures, the price will be a little higher.  We will make complete arrangements for your puppy as we are extremely experienced.  We will work with you to schedule the flight date that will work for us all and we will provide complete instructions to prepare you for the day of flight so it goes smoothly.

Puppy Reservations for

Available Puppies

If you are interested in reserving a puppy from a litter that has been born, the first step of the process is to complete the Puppy Questionnaire.  Upon approval of your submitted puppy questionnaire, we will accept deposits in the amount of $250 or up to 1/2 of the total puppy cost to continue the reservation of a puppy until time for pickup or 2 weeks prior to flight.  National Champion sired puppies do carry a higher reservation deposit as the puppies are more expensive.  If you have questions about the deposit amount for a specific puppy please contact us.  We will accept deposits via Venmo, Applepay, PayPal, or by mailing in a personal check. We will discuss instructions for making a deposit through private communication upon acceptance of the questionnaire.

We do accept reservations of specific puppies.  We also accept request for us to select the puppy for you if preferred.  A lot of families who are looking for a premium hunting or competition puppy do request our input as we see the puppies daily and have a lot of experience.  We will watch the puppies grow and work with you and your family throughout the growing process to ensure the puppy you ultimately take home is one that you are happy with and one that we consider a perfect match for your family.  We will stay in contact with you as the puppy grows to let you know of any personality changes that we feel are important. We have over two decades of experience raising and selecting puppies for ourselves as well as for our new families and we essentially have it down to a science.  We are extremely familiar with our kennel's specific lineages and we are experienced with each developmental phase and how the actions of each puppy during each developmental stage translates into how the dog will behave as it grows. We are not hard core and take a very relaxed, non-stressful approach to the kennel. This is supposed be fun for everyone involved.  We have real jobs and we own personal businesses that stress us out.  The kennel is something we do in our free time because we enjoy it and we have had a lot of success over the years.  We like keeping puppies from our litters to start in the field each year and we have litters for us to continue our competition passion. We are accommodating and our goal is that you take home a puppy who you are happy with.  We will work with you and your family until you are satisfied with the puppy you ultimately take home.   We understand that choosing a puppy can be up to a 17 year commitment and we want to make sure we get it right!   However, if at any time throughout our process, working with you becomes more of a chore than something we enjoy, or you can not be kind, considerate, non-demanding, and polite, you will no longer be a candidate for one of our puppies.   

Upon receiving a deposit for a puppy, we will email you confirmation of receipt of the deposit. We will then follow up with the litter announcement/preparation email which will discuss all things puppy and prepare you for bringing one of our puppies home.  We will update you with photos as the puppies grow approximately every 12-14 days until they are ready to go to their new homes.

Every litter is unique and we determine release dates based on litter maturity and when the mother is ready to leave.  Most mothers completely ween the babies approximately 3 weeks after they get their teeth.  She typically stops wanting to be with them around the age of 6 weeks old.  Once the mother has weened them, she does leave them and typically wants very little to do with them afterwards.  We schedule pickup dates at the age of 6.5 weeks - 8 weeks of age.  The preparation email will outline pickup dates for your specific litter, will discuss food, toys, vet visits, training, health insurance, microchips, AKC registration, final payment, flights, and other topics to fully prepare you and your family for one of our premium puppies.

All of our puppies come with a 26 month health guarantee against genetic defects.  All puppies will be sold with dewclaws removed, tails docked, and veterinary professional grade vaccinations at the 6 week old mark, as well as dewormer, and external pest control as needed starting at birth.  If your puppy will be flying to your destination, we will fly puppies at 8 weeks old.  The airfare, crate, veterinary health certificate, and our 400 mile round trip travel to the airport is usually $385 if we can use Delta or American Airlines.   If we are forced to use United because of temperatures, the price will be a little higher.  We will make complete flight arrangements for your puppy as we are extremely experienced.  We will work with you to schedule the flight date that will work for us all and we will provide complete instructions to prepare you for the day of flight. We expect puppies to be picked up and/or shipped by the age of 8 weeks old.  Owners with puppies remaining in our possession past the age of 8 weeks old may be charged a daily boarding fee of $10.00/day and will also be responsible for vaccination fees during this time if applicable.  If your puppy will require extra care beyond the age of 8 weeks and/or vaccines please ask about pricing.  We are unable to send veterinary quality/certified vaccinations home with you.  Please do not ask.
