Frequently Asked Questions
How can I pay my deposit?
We accept deposits electronically via Paypal, as well as Square. We also accept personal checks, money orders and cashier checks via the mail or in person. In addition, cash is acceptable if paid in person. We encourage personal checks or PayPal, as that allows you a copy for your records. Please do always check with us before sending any type of deposit, and be sure to view our Puppy Purchase Agreement/Health Guarantee prior to sending!
What is your deposit refund policy?
We are unable to refund deposits. Your deposit is transferable to a different litter any time in the future. Unfortunately, experience has taught us we have to be firm with this policy. The ONLY time we will refund a deposit is if we are unable to provide a puppy of the gender requested from the litter the deposit was placed on. We are always happy to move deposits to other litters etc! You may view our Puppy Purchase Agreement which includes our deposit policy, here on our website under the Health Guarantee Tab before placing your deposit. Please consider this policy BEFORE placing your deposit:) Please do always check with us before sending any type of deposit, and be sure to read through the Puppy Purchase Agreement/Health Guarantee under the specific Health Guarantee Tab as a deposit sent does imply consent to that agreement, as stated in our Puppy Purchase Agreement. We appreciate your attention to this matter, as clear understanding of our deposit policy does prevent misunderstandings in the future! 🙂
What does my puppy come with?
Your puppy will come freshly bathed, with a small blanket smelling like mama. You will receive a packet of paperwork which includes AKC registration, your puppy’s pedigree, their parent’s health clearances, proof of vaccination and worming, and tips and training ideas for your first days home. We now offer complimentary microchipping as a service! Your puppy will come with their dew claws removed, extremely well socialized, exposed to our small children, and our other dogs. Also, we are super excited that each of our pups are going home on AWESOME nutrition, Life’s Abundance. We have researched so much and finally found a 5 star food each of our dogs is doing great on. Each puppy is checked over thoroughly shortly before pickup by our vet, Cody Ames, at Tonasket Veterinary Service, so that you and we both know you are getting a 100% healthy dog. You will receive a copy of your 3 year health guarantee, which guarantees against hip, heart, eye and cardiac defects for the first 3 years of life among other things. Your puppy packet includes copies of health certs for dam and sire, pedigrees, puppy tips, training ideas, 30 days of health insurance and more! We always find fun things for puppy packets including stuffed animals, kongs, pictures of mom and dad and more. It is super special and fun for us to put them together, thinking of the new families that get to enjoy these precious pups <3!
What do you feed your dogs?
We feed our adult dogs Life’s Abundance All Life Stages Premium Dog Food and a wellness supplement. We feed our puppies and pregnant mamas Life’s Abundance All Life Stages Premium Dog Food or All Life Stages Premium Dog Food (Grain Free), depending on their needs at the time, including a wellness supplement daily. Many of our dogs also get other Life’s Abundance supplements(The Agility one is amazing!) as well as their different treats daily. We love the Porky Puffs and Bully Sticks, as well as the Turkey and Berry Chewies. It is crucial for large breed puppies to receive the appropriate food to support their rapidly growing bodies and joints! We have tried virtually every premium dog food out there, and researched many, and feel that our dogs do the best on this food. We feel SO strongly about this, knowing the correlation between both genetics and excellent nutrition, we now offer a THREE year genetic health guarantee for pups that stay on Life’s Abundance feeding program. Our breeding females diets are supplemented during pregnancy and nursing pups with healthy snacks and treats such as raw eggs and our home grown beef, as well as plain whole fat yogurt and cottage cheese mixed in their food. Depending on which gal, they also get food items such as carrots and blueberries;) Each of our dogs has their fave food item! They love it!
What does a typical day look like for your dogs?
Our dogs roam freely in our lush green pasture behind our house. They often come into our large yard to play with our three small children as they run through the sprinkler or swing on their wooden play structure. They all LOVE to retrieve, so multiple times a day you can find us out in the pasture with tennis rackets and balls, hitting them for the dogs. We are fortunate enough to live in a beautiful recreational area, so our dogs enjoy hiking with us, going to lake and swimming, even riding with us as we paddle board! In the evenings we have about three to four dogs( or five…hah) in the house, happily laying on the cool wood floors in the summer, or on a rug next to the wood stove in the winter. We rotate our pups in and out of the house year round. When they’re not inside, they sleep in our covered kennels, or in their dog houses. Our children love the animals, so you can often find a dog, or three by their side. Often times we will wake up in the morning to find a dog guarding their bedroom doorways as they’ve slept. Our dogs truly are part of the family, and are always treated as such.
