Here's How It Works...
The Puppy Adoption Process
Application and Deposit
Puppies are only available to approved depositors. Start by filling out a Puppy Adoption Application.
Once you are approved and have placed a deposit, you can request that your name be added to the upcoming litter of your choice. Pick positions on any upcoming litter are determined on a "first come first serve" basis (for registered depositors only).
**If there are puppies available on any particular litter after the registered depositors on that litter have chosen their pups at 6 weeks of age, any registered depositor may select any available puppy. Puppies go home or start training at 8 weeks of age.
Puppy Pick Day
Our committed depositors will choose their puppies once they reach 6 weeks and 1 day of age. We ask that the first person picking their pup give us their choice by 10:00 am (Mountain Time Zone), then we'll proceed to the #2 depositor and so on. Usually most of our depositors are ready to give us their choice right away, so the process is usually done within a few hours. We require that all picks be confirmed by email so that there is no confusion. So, once it's your turn to pick, please email us your puppy pick and we will immediately post your choice on the litter page (REAL TIME - Immediately).
After everyone chooses their pup, we will email you an invoice to pay the balance on your pup, including shipping and training if applicable. You can pay by credit card (we add 3% to cover processing fees charged by our on-line merchant - Bank of Utah, PayPal or Square) or you can send us a check by mail. Either way is just fine with us. When sending a check, please mail the check right away so that we can receive your check prior to shipping or training if applicable.
Puppies Go Home @ 8 Weeks
Our sweet little puppies are ready to go home at 8 weeks of age. Please keep in mind that we are not able to let our puppies go home sooner than 8 weeks of age. It is important that all puppies have the opportunity to spend the first 8 weeks of their life with their mom and siblings and that they have a chance to be properly weaned between 7-8 weeks of age. **** If you have enrolled your puppy in our training program, your pup will go home at 11 weeks of age, or 13 weeks depending upon which training course/s you choose.
Shipping Your Pup
We handle all shipping details. We will arrange shipping according to your preference. If traveling by air, we prefer Delta airlines when shipping within the US. If shipping to Canada, Mexico or overseas, we will discuss with you airline options and our further requirements for puppy travel. We prefer Delta as their Pet handling procedures are of the highest standards. We seek after a direct flight if possible. We'll discuss this with you. We typically ship our pups out on the first Friday or Saturday after your puppy turns 8 weeks old. The cost is a flat $350. This fee includes air fare, crate, Vet's Certificate of Health and transport to the airport.
