4. What can I expect after I place my deposit?
* I will notify you when our mama dog is confirmed pregnant.
* Once puppies are born I will keep you updated with pictures and weekly progress.
* Puppy selection day is when puppies are 4-5-weeks. How this works is; we will take photos and videos while assessing their personality (please note it can be difficult to assess the personality of such a young puppy) and we will start the selection process as soon as all of the assessments and photos are completed and up on Google Photos. Each person will be notified in the order of the waitlist by email, phone call, or text, whatever means is best for you. Everyone will be given 24 hours to choose your puppy in the order of the waitlist. If we cannot reach you or you cannot decide in that timeframe which puppy to choose, we will move to the next person on the waitlist and then come back to you. You do not need to take the full 24 hours to pick your puppy, if you know your puppy choice then you can choose and we will move to the next family on the list!

and $55 per day boarding/training.
6. What food should I feed my puppy?
* Nutrition is of critical importance to the longevity of your dog and we have carefully selected your puppy’s food and supplements for optimal growth and balance holistic well being. To avoid digestive upset and to initiate your 2-year health guarantee it is very important to have your puppy on the same food we have your puppy on. PawTree is the name brand and it can only be ordered online. I will let you know what formula we are using for your puppy.
7. How much does my puppy cost?
*$500 non-refundable deposit
*$2500 when puppy is 6 weeks of age (We will not fly your puppy until funds are cleared at the bank)
8. Is a male or female better?
*I cannot see one being better than the other. Our boys and girls are very intelligent, loving and affectionate! As far as size males can be larger or smaller than the females. Size really depends on the individual dog and not gender. Energy also depends on the dog and not gender.
