Frequently Asked Questions
Choosing your Puppy
You may place a deposit towards a puppy at any time with a completed application. We will keep a list in the order received. When puppies are available you will be notified and can view and choose your puppy. Be sure and specify gender and color on application requests, we have a separate list for Merles to all other colors. Merles go extremely fast so if that is your desire do not hesitate to place a deposit and get on the list.
Best age to meet and choose your puppy in person is 6-8 weeks. They are playing and showing their personality! You have a far better chance of making a connection with a puppy. If you are intending to use your puppy for a service dog, making a connection is super important! Puppy must show interest in you! They are definitely part of the process.
Our Females are both on the smaller size. Our red merle is about 40lbs and our blue merle is a little bigger at 45lbs. My current male is a standard size weighing in at around 60-65lbs. Our puppies average between 30-50lbs. We have had one under 30lbs and had a couple over 60lbs. Predominately they are a perfect medium size dog.
Our dogs are NOT high energy dogs. We have carefully chosen and raised calm well settled dogs. Our dogs are very intelligent, easy to train, and eager to please. They love to go for walks, play ball, go for a swim, work the ranch, or dominate the agility course. They literally can be trained to serve or work in many different ways. They love to work and have a purpose. Dogs as intelligent as these can become bored if not given proper attention and training. We highly recommend professional training for your puppy. A well trained animal is a joy for life!
