    Frequently Asked Questions

    Here are a few of our most common questions that our customers ask us. If you can’t find an answer here, don’t hesitate to reach out at the number or email address above.

    Yes. We do ship puppies. We have been raising puppies and shipping them for 25 years and have never had any problems with a shipped puppy. We ship to anywhere in the United States or Canada.

    The buyer pays some of the shipping costs which include: airline (approx $300) crate ($80 – $100) and possibly a small fee to drive the puppy to the airport.
    Puppies are weaned at about 4 weeks of age. At that time the mother is ready to be away from the puppies for most of the time. They have very sharp teeth and she will be tired of getting bit as they nurse. When they are weaned they are put on a high quality dry puppy chow softened with warm water.
    Puppies have to be 8 weeks old to be shipped on a commercial flight. However, they may go to their forever homes as early as 6 weeks. Some people like to leave their pups with us until they are 7 weeks old, which is fine as well.
    We “free” feed our puppies, meaning that we provide enough dog food that they can eat on and off throughout the day. That most resembles how they eat when they are nursing with mother. If you plan on your puppy being in the house and you are trying to house train him our her it might be easier if you feed twice a day, After each feeding you then take your puppy outside until he or she goes potty.
    We have used many different types of dog food including, Blue Buffalo, Purina dog chow, Purina Pro Plan, Purina One, Black Gold, and Loyall. Currently we are feeding Loyall regular breed puppy chow. It has 30% protein and 20% fat. Puppies metabolize fat to produce energy and protein to help with growth. A high protein, high fat dog food is nutrient dense, meaning there is less filler per cup. This means your pup poops less and you have less to pick up!
    When you switch dog food your puppy will have looser stools than usual, maybe even diarrhea for a few days. They should get over it quickly, however. All puppies have looser stools, in general, than adult dogs, although there are exceptions to the rule. Don’e worry if they have diaharea for a few days but still seem happy and have plenty of energy. If they seem to be listless or have less energy, take him or her to the vet. Your pup might have Parvo, or some other problem.

    All our puppies are inoculated before going home against the following diseases:

    Distemper – A serious and contagious disease caused by a virus that attacks the respiratory, gastrointestinal (GI), and nervous systems. Distemper spreads through airborne exposure (through sneezing or coughing) from an infected animal. The virus can also be transmitted by shared food, water bowls, and equipment. It causes discharges from the eyes and nose, fever, coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, twitching, paralysis, and, often, death.

    Adenovirus Type 2 – Adenovirus causes respiratory disease in dogs and is one of the infectious agents commonly associated with canine infectious tracheobronchitis, which is also known as “kennel cough”.

    Parainfluenza – One of several viruses that can contribute to kennel cough

    Parvovirus Type 2 – Parvo is a highly contagious virus that affects all dogs, but unvaccinated dogs and puppies less than four months of age are at the most risk to contract it. The virus attacks the gastrointestinal system and creates the loss of appetite, vomiting, fever, and often severe, bloody diarrhea. Extreme dehydration can come on rapidly and kill a dog within 48-to-72 hours, so prompt veterinary attention is crucial. There is no cure, so keeping the dog hydrated and controlling the secondary symptoms can keep him going until his immune system beats the illness.
