Yes, as a small breeder we do not produce a large volume of puppies.
Female dogs only cycle every 6 months and that is if they follow mother natures predicted course. The gestational period is approximately 63 days from the time the mating takes place to the puppies being born. Its then a further 8 weeks before the puppies can leave us and head off to their new homes.
Most people can expect to wait up to 12 months for a puppy.
The short answer, NO.
Unless you have had years of experience with the breed and been involved in training then we will select the most suitable puppy to fit in with your lifestyle and family.
A $500 non refundable deposit must be paid once we have approved your application, the remaining $4500 must be paid before the puppy turns 5 weeks old.
We are more than happy to have you meet the parents prior to any litters being born, but sometimes the sires (fathers) reside interstate or are no longer with us.
We will share as many videos and photos with you that we possibly can
Yes, you will need to fill out the puppy application form before we will make contact with you to discuss and answer any questions you may have.
Yes, we are registered breeders with Dogs NSW and all of our puppies come with ANKC limited registration papers.
Main registration papers allow you to participate in conformation shows, participate in ANKC sanctioned sporting events and if your breeder allows you, you may also use your dog in a breeding program.
Limited registration papers does not allow you to participate in conformation shows or the option for breeding, you may still participate in ANKC sporting events.
This is never a guarantee. There is a huge list of things to consider before you can even contemplate breeding your dog. Structure and Temperament are at the top of the list as is the health testing plus a whole lot more.
We are only to happy to help and mentor people looking to get into breeding, but it should never be taken lightly.
ANKC Rules and Regulations along with legislation’s stipulate that a puppy can not leave a breeder before 8 weeks of age. Sometimes we may choose to keep the puppy in our care longer for various reasons.
We are not a first come first serve type breeder.
Each individual puppy undergoes several tests to help us determine things like temperament/character and drive levels.
From your application and conversations we have with you, helps us determine which puppy will suit your family/lifestyle needs.
For this reason we dont make the final decisions until roughly 5 weeks of age.
This ensures that your new puppy will fit right in and not be too much for you to handle. There is not point sending you the little energiser bunny with high drives that would suit a working role like Police or Security if you have never had a working breed before.
This is not a problem.
We have a couple of preferred transport companies that we can put you in touch with to make these arrangements.
