Our puppies are usually all sold before they’re born, so you’ll want to be sure to get on the waiting list. We require a nonrefundable $200 deposit that is deducted from the price of your puppy. Give Christopher a call and he’ll tell you how to get on the waiting list.
Something Christopher always tells people is that color and gender do not hunt: The pedigree hunts. In other words, our breeders have pedigrees with multiple field trial champions in their background, that’s your assurance you’re going to get a puppy that will be a great dog. Even if you don’t plan to hunt the dog, the caliber of the pedigree lets you know that these dogs are super smart and will be easy to train because it’s bred in them, just as retrieve drive is inbred.
Puppies are born around 63 days from when the dogs are bred. Add eight weeks to the due date, for planning purposes, this will give you a pretty good idea when you’re going to be able to get your puppy.
After the puppies are a few days old, Christopher will call you and tell you what the mama had. If the color or sex of puppy you want isn’t available, then your name will roll over to the top of the list for the next litter.
When the puppy you want has been born, Christopher will tell you the dates of the weekend it will be ready for pick up. If you have a vacation or something planned at that pick-up or shipping time, then you may want to wait for the next litter. It’s no fun for the puppy after all its litter mates are gone. If we have to hold the puppy more than 3 days beyond the ship or pick-up weekend, there will be a $25 per day fee for boarding unless arrangements are made with Christopher in advance.
The airlines have become so difficult to ship with that we’ve been recommending using a delivery service that you will pay directly. They pick the dog up from us and deliver to your door. They try to stay competitive with the airline fees. It takes a number of days for delivery, depending on where else their deliveries are, but they take excellent care of the dogs. They stop every three hours and let each dog out and play with them. They stop early every evening to feed the dogs and allow them time out of the cage to play. The driver sleeps in the van with the dogs so they’re not left alone overnight. We’ve heard nothing but good things from the customers who have used them. It’s another delivery option to consider.
Now that it’s getting toward vacation time, we ask that if you have a family vacation planned, either pick your puppy up or make arrangements for your puppy to be picked up and taken care of while you’re on vacation or wait until a later litter to get a puppy. It’s not fair for a puppy to have to stay here all by itself week after week while you’re on vacation. We’re not set up, nor do we have time to care for individual puppies. Our first concern is the welfare of the puppy. We also want you to have a great experience with your puppy and want it to be the best dog you’ve ever had. The younger your puppy is when you get to start that relationship, the better it will be for both of you.
