RESERVING A PUPPY FROM AN UPCOMING LITTER

If you want a puppy from a certain anticipated litter or cross you can request to be added to an e-mail list that goes out within 48 hours of birth to get a sneak peak and the option to choose before the litter is advertised to the general public.

TAIL DOCKING

Although the standards of registration now allow for a tail or a "natural" tail, we do dock tails, as it is the standard conformation of the breed.

 

Contact us for more information on the process if you would like a natural tail on your future aussie!

BREEDING RIGHTS

Breeding rights are available on some crosses with registration for an additional 500/700 added onto the PET price of the puppy. 


If at any time we feel that a puppy is being purchased with PET registration, but the intention is to BREED we retain the right to cancel the sale and return any deposit received. 

POLICIES

OUTSIDE DOGS

We do not under ANY circumstances allow outside dogs onto the property. 


Even if you believe your dog to be healthy and had their proper care received, they could be unknowingly carriers of parasites or viruses and disease to which young puppies are extremely vulnerable. We also do not know your dog and its personality or energy. Outside dogs also add a great deal of stress and worry to our expectant mommas and/or mommas with puppies.


PLEASE RESPECT THE HEALTH BOTH PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY OF OUR DOGS.

PUPPY VISITS

We no longer allow puppy visits before 7 weeks of age.


We have had too many instances of people abusing this privilege and not following the guidelines set out.


It is too high a risk that a virus could be brought into the facility which could be detrimental to young puppies. Please consider the other people who have purchased  a puppy and are relying on us to make sure nothing happens to that puppy healthwise. Not to mention, our potential loss if a virus were to be brought into the facility. Once again, older dogs can be carriers as well as people who have come into contact with them. The Parvo virus is considered to be transported through soil and even air born.


WE APPRECIATE YOUR UNDERSTANDING
