Puppies

Availability

We welcomed 5 beautiful puppies on December 4th, 2022 out of Lillie and Blaze. There are 3 boys (1 red and 2 greys) and 2 girls (both greys). All have dark brown eyes. Please fill out a puppy application if you are interested in this litter.

We have several young adults that are available to the right homes – they are well socialized house dogs that are fully potty trained, leash trained, and crate trained. Leo (2 years old) and Marvin (4 years old) are available immediately for a trial period. Lillie (2 years old) and Serena (3 years old) will be available sometime in 2023 after they are spayed. If you are interested in one of them, please fill out a puppy application and indicate your interest in a young adult.

Puppy protocol

All of our litters are whelped and raised in our home. For the first week, mothers are never left alone with their puppies, and we sleep next to them at night. We follow the Puppy Culture program, including early neurological stimulation, emotional resiliency exercises, safe early socialization, and more. Puppies are exposed to basic obedience, leash manners, potty training, and crate training. They are bathed and brushed weekly and get used to having their nails trimmed. Puppies never go home before 8 weeks (which is also against the law), and they only go home when they are ready. Depending on the litter, this may be as early as 8 weeks or as late as 10 weeks. By the time the puppies are around 4 weeks old, I will have a good idea about when they will be ready for pickup. We will hold puppies until 12 weeks for an extra charge. We do not ship puppies — pick up in person only.

Pricing

We live in one of the highest cost-of-living locations in the country, so our prices tend to reflect that. The price of the puppy is simply used to help cover our fees in providing state-of-the-art nutrition, veterinary care, and reproductive care to our dams and puppies. Your puppy will come home to you vaccinated with his first round of shots, dewormed, and microchipped. Your puppy will be AKC registered, and our contract includes a lifetime health guarantee for certain hereditary conditions. This is all included in the prices you see.

All our puppies are the same price, regardless of who the parents are and whether they are show or pet quality, since all our puppies receive the same exact care. They are also the same price whether you pick up at 8 weeks or 10, since every litter matures at a different rate, and we want to make sure they are fully ready to leave before they do. These prices are subject to change at any time.

Pet puppy (8-12 weeks)$3000
Show prospect (8-12 weeks)$3000
Co-owned show prospect (8-12 weeks)$1500
Older puppy with foundational training (3 months-1 year)$1500-3000
Adult (1 year+)Rehoming fee (cost of spay/neuter)

First deposit

At the time your puppy application is approved, a refundable first deposit of $500 is required to secure your spot on our waiting list. If you wish to remove your name from our list at any time, your deposit will be completely refunded.

Second deposit

Only after the puppies are born do we take a nonrefundable second deposit of $1000. This guarantees you a puppy at 8-10 weeks, but you will not know which puppy until the puppies are evaluated for conformation and temperament at 8 weeks. At that time, we will be able to help you pick the puppy that is the best fit for your family. We will take into consideration your preferences for gender, color, and temperament, but ultimately we know the puppies the best and will match you with the puppy that will work best for you. If there is not a suitable puppy for you at 8 weeks, we will refund your $1500 deposit in full.

Older puppies

At times, we may have older puppies (3 months+) available that were kept back as show prospects but that we are no longer able to keep. These puppies will have been socialized and trained to the same degree of all our dogs. They will be mostly potty trained, crate trained, and leash trained. They are used to bathing, grooming, and traveling. They will have been to puppy classes and been exposed to all kinds of people and dogs. For many families, getting an older puppy is the best decision for them.

Retired Adults

Most of our retired show dogs are available to the right home, with a rehoming fee equivalent to the cost of a spay/neuter in our area. Some of our retired show dogs are as young as two years old. They are on the younger side, healthy, and well socialized. They will be completely potty trained, crate trained, and leash trained. For many families, getting an adult dog is the best decision for them.
