Puppy Raising

Puppies in the program are raised in my home, cuddled, loved, and cared for since the minute they come into the world. I sleep next to the whelping box for the first two weeks. I live and breathe to care for these puppies until they are old enough to go out into the world and change their family's life forever. 

 

Our pups are raised on a Service Dog Curriculum designed by "Badass Breeder", Jeanette Forrey. The Badass Breeder puppy raising curriculum involves intentional daily handling of puppies after 3 days of age and exposure to new stimuli, including new scents, sights, sounds, textures, people and places during their critical socialization periods. This curriculum helps to empower puppies to be confident family pets and/or working dogs. It helps to teach each puppy resilience and that the world is safe, people are kind and dogs are friendly. 

Puppies are temperament tested at 7 weeks of age. The temperament testing assesses for energy level, confidence, motivation, toy/prey drive, assertiveness, resiliency, sight/sound sensitivity, touch tolerance and human focus. Knowing these traits allows us to honor each puppy's unique needs and match each puppy's temperament to their family's lifestyle and preferences so that these matches last a lifetime! This system empowers families to choose their puppy with a WHOLISTIC approach vs. just picking a puppy based on color or sex.

Policies

1.) Application & Waitlist

Please fill out the waitlist application below! There is no fee to be on the waitlist but being on the waitlist does not guarantee you a spot on the litter. Families on our waitlist will be kept up to date on opportunities via text or email. 

2.) Reservation List Fee

Once you have decided which litter is right for you, you can place a reservation list fee and secure your pick position for that litter! Reservations List Fees of $500, are accepted first come, first serve for each litter. This Fee is credited towards the total purchase price of your puppy. When you place your Reservation List Fee you will be told what NUMBER you have for pick day. The order of pick is determined by us using many factors, including but not limited to the order in which reservations are received.

Breeding prospects and service dog prospects, when approved, may have pick priority over pet homes but the number of these prospects will be very limited for every litter. We reserve "Pick of the litter" spot for our program so we are always number 1 on the list! 

A Reservation List Fee does NOT guarantee that a specific puppy or the color you want will be available on pick day so please stay open minded! Many times, things work out better than you expect. Unless otherwise specified, Reservation List Fees are non-refundable, but can be transferred to future litter for up to 12 months. However, waiting for a future litter does not guarantee a higher pick priority and pricing of future litters may vary.

3.) Pick Your Puppy!

Puppies 7 to 8 weeks old

Families with a paid Reservation List Fees will pick their puppy AFTER 7 weeks of age once temperament testing is performed and we have the results of individual genetic testing.  Pick day may or may not be go-home day depending on how things work out.  Although many breeders allow you to pick your puppy long before this, we feel that this is a doing a disservice to the family and the puppy. We look at each puppy as a whole (temperament, genetics, color, coat characteristics, conformation, etc) and present ALL of that information to our clients in order to match the right puppy with the BEST family for them!
