I'm thinking of adding a second dog to our family- What do you recommend?
Even an older, dominant-personality dog will adapt easily to a new puppy. Adult dogs are naturally tolerant of youngsters, and the two will adjust their positions in the social hierarchy as the puppy grows. Adding either the same or opposite-sexed puppy to your first dog will work in most cases, but getting a puppy of the opposite sex is a sure-fire guarantee of success, as they will never have to vie for the same position in the social ladder.
Can I have my puppy shipped to me?
Due to the world being turned upside down this question needs to be answered one day at a time. There have been airlines that stopped shipping animals altogether. Some put that service on pause and some have changed the criteria for pet travel. If you wish to have your puppy shipped I encourage you to do the research and make the necessary arrangements. We can accommodate everything from there. Keep in mind we do live in Wisconsin and winter shipment of pets may be delayed by a number of days due to cold conditions. The required temps are subject to each airline.
You may also choose a quick round trip flight where you take your puppy on board with you. When purchasing your ticket be sure to let them know about the puppy riding with you. Airlines have different criteria for how old a puppy must be to fly. You must make sure they allow an 8 week old puppy to fly.
Another option is to use a Pet Nanny. This is a service that will pick up your puppy from us and fly with them to the airport nearest you.
Will my new puppy get along with my cat?
Yes! The pups are all young enough to adapt to any new situation they are exposed to. Depending on your cat, the new puppy may become its best friend, or your cat may stay completely aloof but accepting of the new pup after the introductory period.
Can I bring my other dog when we come to pick up our puppy?
Sorry, but no. While you may wonder how your pet will react to the new pup, it does not work well for us to invite any new dog into our home because it causes too much excitement for our own dogs, and because we don’t want to introduce any diseases into our environment which other dogs may potentially carry. However, as you consider the question, remember that dogs are pack animals, and will get used to another dog in their house after the introductory period is over.
What things should I have available to bring my new puppy home?
We very much encourage crate-training, so a crate just big enough for your puppy to lie down and stand up in comfortably is perfect; food and water bowls; a collar and leash, a few toys and puppy food. We will provide some puppy food that they are used to eating.
Can I pick out my puppy in person?
We are happy to announce that this summer (2022) we will have a Meet and Greet for each litter again. We require a $500 deposit to be placed on the list. Those on the list will be notified of each upcoming litter and may choose to pick from those litters in the order of deposit received. We firmly believe "in person" is the most fun way to pick out your puppy and we love being a part of that process.
*Puppies that must fly to their new home will be picked via Zoom or other video means. This is necessary as puppies flying require additional veterinary paperwork specific to that puppy.
