Our Puppy Process
Puppies stay in our bedroom during their first two to three weeks. During this time they are given pro and prebiotics for a healthy gut along with lots of quiet time with Mama.
On day three, we begin Early Neuro Stimulation (ENS). ENS helps improve cardio- vascular performance (heart rate), produce stronger heart beats and adrenal glands, increase their tolerance to stress and give them a greater resistance to disease.
We also do Early Scent Introduction (ESI) which is designed to enhance their ability to identify and react to different smells. ENS and ESI are continued until they are 16 days old.
At this point they will be moved to a different area of the house and brought outside to a playground area for more introduction of sounds, scents, textural differences and elevation changes for sure-footedness and body awareness and confidence.
All our dogs are descendants from top breeding lines originating in Australia. Temperament testing on all puppies are done at 7 weeks of age to ensure proper home placements for each puppy.
By doing temperament testing, it greatly helps to decrease a families need to re-home their puppy due to its temperament not being the best fit for their family and home dynamics.
We combine the test results with our 8 weeks of observations along with the questionnaire to help families choose the best puppy for your family. Providing positive socialization and puppy training will ensure a wonderful family pet as well.
Our puppies cost $2,850.00* plus Texas sales tax. We require a non-refundable reservation fee of $500.
The remaining balance of $2,350.00 is to be paid when puppies are picked up at 8 weeks of age. We accept payment through Good Dog, Venmo, or personal checks for deposits. For the remaining balance, we accept checks (at six weeks of age), cash, or Good Dog on pick-up day.
(*The pricing above is for "pet" price only.
The cost of a puppy for a breeding dog is $10,000 to $14,000.)
Puppies are chosen and go home to their forever families at 8 weeks of age. We ask families to narrow their choice to several puppies before pickup. Each family is given a pickup time, in which they are able to choose their puppy according to the order in which the deposits have been received.
