Pickup Day Procedure


We hear all of the time that the day  to take home your little furry bundle of joy takes forever to get here. Here are a few things for you to know to make things run a bit smoother:


1. Please get in contact with us and set up a time and day that you are going to be coming to pick him/her up.


2. The remaining balance is due in Canadian cash the day of pickup, or if you prefer to send an e-transfer, it must clear before pickup


3. We keep our puppies until 8 weeks of age. After that “board” is $10 per day up to a maximum of 2 additional weeks (10 weeks old). NOTE: We do not recommend leaving your pup with us after 8 weeks old if at all possible, it is the best age to start housetraining your puppy. Training is much easier at that age. We are not able to house train or crate train your puppy.


4. Puppies are to be picked up at our home. We like to have people to our home and go over our health guarantee and none breeding agreement. We also want to make sure you have a comfortable place to ask any questions. We are a young family and are not able to drop off puppies to your home.


5. On the day of pickup, we will have you fill in paperwork for the Canadian Kennel Club registration. Included in this is a Non Breeding Agreement that is sent to the CKC. Your veterinarian will provide you with a certificate of spay/neuter once your puppy is old enough to have it done. We require you to send us a copy of that certificate and then we will mail you your CKC registration.


6.Please bring a puppy/cat carrier to bring your puppy home with. Trust us, it's nice to have on car rides home and to the veterinarian etc. A leash/collar from the dollar store is a great idea since your puppy will grow out of it quickly.


7. We start our puppies on Acana Puppy & Junior. We have found this to be an excellent food that matches all the needs of a growing puppy. If you would like to switch to a different brand please let us know so we can provide you with a portion to transition to the new food. Gradually change the mixture until it consists of the new food only. If you switch the food too quickly your puppy may develop diarrhea and possibly refuse to eat for a few days.
