ABOUT PLANNED LITTERS
The puppies are usually sold before they’re born, so you’ll want to be sure to get on the waiting list. A nonrefundable $250 deposit is required that is deducted from the price of your puppy. The deposit secures your place in line and locks in the price. Give Rene a call, text, or email to find out how to get on the waiting list: 229-344-5622 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Something Christopher always told 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 which assures you 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 between 58-68 days from when the dogs are bred. Add eight weeks to the due date and this will give you a pretty good idea of when you’re going to be able to get your puppy. After the puppies are a few days old, Rene will call you and tell you what color and sex the puppies are. If the color or sex you wanted 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, Rene will tell you the dates of the weekend it will be ready for pickup. If you have a vacation or trip planned at that pickup or shipping time, then you should wait for the next litter, and you need to tell Rene. A puppy left alone after all its littermates are gone is miserable; it isn’t fair to the puppy. If a puppy has to be held more than 3 days beyond the ship date or pickup weekend, there will be a $25-per-day fee for boarding unless prior arrangements have been made.
Due to temperature restrictions, it’s oftentimes difficult to use the airlines for shipping puppies in cargo. Another option is to use a bonded, reputable, dog transport service. Most are slightly higher than airline fees. It does take longer, of course, than shipping by air because it depends on how many other deliveries they have. But they take excellent care of the dogs. They stop often and let each dog out individually, and 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 customers who have used them. This just gives you another delivery option to consider if you can’t come pick up your puppy. Another option is for you to fly here and then fly back with your puppy in a soft-sided pet carrier under your seat. The airline does not charge a lot for the puppy when it accompanies you, but you must make arrangements with the airline in advance.
