Do you have a wait list?

Certainly, as a small-scale breeder, we don’t have a high turnover of puppies. Female dogs only go through a reproductive cycle every six months, following nature’s schedule. The gestational period from mating to birth is approximately 63 days, and then it takes an additional 8 weeks before the puppies are ready to leave our care for their new homes. Considering these natural processes, most individuals can anticipate a wait of up to 12 months for a puppy from our breeding program.

Upon approval of your application, a non-refundable deposit of $500 is required. The remaining balance of $4500 must be settled before the puppy reaches 3 weeks of age.

Can we meet the parents?

Certainly, we appreciate your interest in meeting the parents. While we welcome visits, it’s important to mention that, in some instances, particularly with sires (fathers), they may reside in another state or may no longer be with us. Additionally, for the well-being and safety of our females, their puppies, and our visitors, we don’t allow visits to the mums-to-be while they are pregnant or nursing. This precaution is due to the natural protective instincts that pregnant or nursing females may exhibit.

However, we are committed to keeping you actively involved by providing extensive visual content. You’ll find a wealth of photos and videos on our social media pages, and we’re more than willing to share additional media to give you a thorough understanding of the parents and their living conditions. Your understanding of these precautions is greatly appreciated, as our top priority is ensuring the health and safety of our dogs and their offspring.

Do I get to choose my own Puppy?

While we appreciate your interest in choosing a puppy, unless you have extensive experience with the breed and have been actively involved in training, we typically take on the responsibility of selecting the most suitable puppy for you. This ensures that the chosen puppy aligns well with your lifestyle and seamlessly integrates into your family. Our experience allows us to make informed decisions to match you with a companion that will thrive in your specific environment.

How soon will i find out which puppy is mine and when can i take my puppy home?

Once the puppies are born, we’ll work diligently to assess their personalities and temperaments. We aim to match each puppy with the most suitable home based on factors like your preferences and lifestyle. You can expect to find out which puppy is yours when they are around 6 weeks old.

As for taking your puppy home, we typically allow them to transition to their new families at around 8 weeks of age. This period allows the puppies to receive essential care, socialization, and initial training from us, ensuring they are well-prepared for their new homes. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this exciting process, and we’ll keep you informed every step of the way.

Are your puppies registered?

Yes, our puppies are registered. We take pride in ensuring that our breeding practices adhere to the Breed Standard of our recognised kennel club, Dogs Australia. Each puppy comes with proper documentation and registration papers issued by Dogs NSW, providing you with the assurance of their pedigree and lineage. If you have specific questions about registration or would like more details, feel free to ask, and we’ll be happy to provide additional information.

What if i live in a different State?

Living in a different state is not an issue at all. We have established relationships with a couple of preferred transport companies that we can connect you with to facilitate the transportation arrangements for your puppy. This way, we ensure a smooth and reliable process, allowing your new companion to reach you safely, regardless of the geographical distance. If you have any concerns or specific questions about the transportation logistics, please feel free to discuss them with us, and we’ll work together to make the process as seamless as possible for you and your puppy.

What if i want to breed my dog?

If you are considering breeding your dog, it’s important to note that this is never a guarantee. There are numerous factors to carefully consider before contemplating breeding. Key aspects such as the structure and temperament of your dog, health testing, and other critical considerations should be thoroughly evaluated. Understanding the genetics of the breed is also paramount in ensuring the health and well-being of the offspring.

We are more than willing to provide assistance and mentorship to individuals looking to enter the breeding realm. However, it’s crucial to emphasize that breeding should never be taken lightly. In line with our commitment to responsible breeding, we only sell to registered breeders. This ensures that our puppies are placed in homes where there is a dedication to upholding the highest standards in breeding practices. If you have any questions or if you’re seeking guidance on breeding, including information on genetics, we are here to help guide you through the process with the utmost care and responsibility.

Are your puppies microchipped & vaccinated?

Yes, in addition to being microchipped, vaccinated, and regularly dewormed, our puppies also undergo a thorough health check within 48 hours prior to leaving our care. This final health examination ensures that each puppy is in optimal health and free from any issues before they join their new families.

We prioritize the well-being of our puppies, and these comprehensive measures, including the final health check, are integral components of our commitment to responsible breeding. If you have any specific questions or if you require more details about our health protocols or any other aspect of our puppy care, please feel free to ask. We want to ensure that our puppies transition to their new homes with the best possible health and care.

What is your breeding philosophy?

As a responsible breeder, our breeding philosophy is grounded in a commitment to the well-being, health, and temperament of the dogs we bring into the world. Our guiding principles encompass various key aspects:

  1. Ethical Practices: We adhere to ethical standards and prioritize the welfare of our dogs over financial considerations. Our breeding practices align with the guidelines set by Dogs Australia, Dogs NSW, Animal Welfare Code of Practice – Breeding dogs and cats and The German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia.

  2. Health Testing: We emphasize rigorous health testing for our breeding dogs to ensure they are free from hereditary conditions and genetic disorders specific to the breed. This commitment aims to produce healthy and resilient offspring.

  3. Genetic Diversity: We recognize the importance of maintaining genetic diversity within our breeding lines. This helps reduce the risk of hereditary health issues and contributes to the overall vitality of the breed.

  4. Temperament: Our breeding pairs are selected based on desirable temperament traits, promoting puppies with positive and well-balanced behaviors. We prioritize producing dogs that make excellent companions for families and individuals alike.

  5. Education and Support: We view ourselves as educators and mentors, offering guidance on puppy care, training, and responsible ownership. Our commitment extends beyond the initial sale, ensuring ongoing support for our puppy owners.

  7. Lifetime Responsibility: We take lifelong responsibility for the well-being of our puppies. This includes having policies in place for rehoming if necessary and fostering open communication with our puppy owners throughout the dogs’ lives.

    Our breeding philosophy is centered on creating a positive impact on the breed while maintaining the highest standards of care and responsibility. We are passionate about producing not only physically healthy dogs but also those with sound temperaments, ensuring they bring joy and companionship to their new homes.
