Everything you need to know

 before you visit



    Planning on visiting me? I am very welcoming to visitors, but I do have a few guidelines that I ask everyone to follow. Please understand that when you have decided to visit and meet puppies that puppies are more vulnerable/susceptible to illness, so my overcautious nature is for their protection.

  First please don't visit another breeder, pet store, humane society, or anywhere where there are dogs/puppies. Parvovirus is the number one killer of puppies and it doesn't need a host to survive. That means that it can live on a surface for a prolonged period of time and that it can easily be picked up on your shoes to be tracked around where ever you go. Puppies that have been vaccinated against parvovirus can still catch it and die. Parvovirus is highly contagious and I do everything in my power to prevent it. You will be asked to wear shoe covers if we go into the nursery, and I am currently looking into a type of sanitizing system for shoes. Please wear comfortable sneaker type shoes, avoid wearing heels or sandals/flip flops. If you know that you are not ready for a puppy now then I ask that you respect the available puppies by not handling/holding them. If you are truly ready for a puppy and are interested in a specific puppy then yes you will get to interact/play with the available puppy or puppies. This is for their protection. I bleach the bottoms of my own shoes every time I visit an area that has been frequented by dogs and if I take a dog/puppy to the vets office when I return I immediately give the dog/puppy a bath. This may sound extreme, but so far it's worked.

   When you visit please understand that you are visiting my home, my private, personal life, my children, etc. Please be respectful, this is where I live with my family. Please stop to use the restroom before you arrive. I will try to accommodate you as far as scheduling a visit, but please be flexible. I prefer a later afternoon/early evening for the first time that you visit. If you are visiting me for the first time, I prefer that you make a decision after you've left, sleep on it. You should never feel rushed, obligated, or pressured to adopt a puppy by any breeder. If you aren't ready for a puppy now, but know when you will be ready, just share this information with me ahead of time and you can meet the parents that I am planning for your specific time frame.

   Most of my puppies go to pet homes, if you are a breeder or are considering this then you need to let me know that ahead of time, not during your first visit. I rarely sell one of my puppies with papers/breeding rights and am very strict in my criteria. If this is something that you are looking for then we will need to discuss this via phone conversation.
