FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How can I reserve a puppy?
If you would like to reserve a puppy, we require a $200 non-refundable deposit.
How do I pay for my puppy?
There are a number of ways you can pay. These are listed in order of our preference. We do not take PayPal.
- A person-to-person transfer, either through your bank or a provider such as Zelle, Venmo, or Cash App.
- Cashier’s check.
- Any major credit card (adds a 4% convenience fee)
- Bank wire transfer (adds a $15 bank charge)
How do I get my puppy? Do you deliver?
Most people pick up their puppy at our home. We are also happy to hand deliver to your location or meet part way. There is a fee depending on the distance traveled.
We also ship puppies through United Airlines or American Airlines pet shipping program. Airlines have protocols to follow to ensure that your puppy arrives safe and healthy. For example, they (and we) will not allow a puppy to be shipped if the temperature where they are flying is too hot or too cold on the day of travel. Shipping via airline involves extra costs (usually around $800), which includes airfare, a travel crate, a vet check and health certificate, and transportation to the airport.
Another option is hiring a pet nanny. They fly the puppy from our closest airport to your closest airport. The advantages are that the puppy is not in the cargo hold for transport, temperature requirements are not an issue (because they are in the climate controlled cabin), and they receive personalized attention and care the entire trip! We have a pet nanny we use who has provided excellent service. The price for this type of transport is usually around $1,000.
The prices listed above for transportation are subject to change without notice. Ask us for current pricing via email.
Do you offer full registration?
Yes and no. All of our puppies are sold as pets with Limited AKC registration, which means that the dog is registered but no litters produced by that dog are eligible for registration. It also means a dog registered with an AKC Limited Registration is ineligible to be entered in a breed competition in a licensed or member dog show. It is eligible, however, to be entered in any other licensed or member event. These events include: Obedience, Tracking, Field Trials, Hunting Tests, Herding, Lure Coursing, Agility and Earthdog. However, if someone needed full registration to show their dog, we are open to providing it for that purpose.
