Thank you so much for taking the time to review the FAQs, we greatly appreciate it.
We are more than happy to answer all your questions
and enjoy hearing from you.
These are just the questions that people are most
commonly looking for answers to.
Please do contact me about additional inquiries.
Where are you located?
We are located on a beautiful 45 acre farm in Arthur, Ontario.
Address and Driving Directions
Do you have puppies available?
I try very hard to keep the information on the website current,
if we have puppies available there will be a link at the top of each page
to information about the current litter.
Information about our planned and upcoming litters will be detailed on the
Our Girls page
This would include if a breeding has taken place,
approx arrival of puppies and take home dates.
Can we meet the adult dogs/parents?
You can meet all of our dogs.
In many cases we have several generations
and/or siblings/parents of expected litters.
I very much enjoy showing the dogs off and answering
any questions you might have.
We do require you make an appointment in advance,
I am sorry but I am not available for drop ins.
Pregnant females are not available for viewing within one week of their due date.
Puppies/Mothers are not available for visits until the puppies are 5 weeks of age.
We hope you can appreciate this is in the best interests
of both the mom and her babies.
In litters where an outside owned male is used for Stud serice,
the Sire will not be available for viewing.
What Health Testing do your Adult dogs have?
Our dogs Hips and Elbows are cleared thru OFA,
if we have dogs cleared by in-house Xrays this information will be listed on the website.
OFA certification links are available on line.
Degenerative Myelopathy clearance is thru OFA or Gensol Diagnostics,
in many cases we have dogs "cleared by parentage"
where both parents are N/N by OFA or Gensol testing.
We also have hard copy certificates available for viewing .
How much are the puppies?
Unless otherwise noted under a female's individual column on
Our Girls page.
The puppy price is $1500.00
Do not contact me asking to purchase a puppy for a lower price
OR a puppy without registration papers.
Under NO circumstances do we barter on the price of our puppies
or offer discounted puppies, all puppies come with CKC registration papers.
Further, I do not respond to inquiries asking only the price of the puppies.
Thank you in advance.
What comes with the puppy?
Puppies come with CKC registration, microchipped, vet checked,
first shots, dewormed, 6 weeks free pet insurance (optional),
one week raw food supply, adjustable collar and puppy gift pack.
Puppies come with 3 yr written health guarantee
covering hips/elbows, heart and kidneys, and DM.
A copy of the written guarantee is available by email apon request.
Do you have a formal application?
We do not require you fill out a formal application.
Ideally you would email me with information about yourself and your family,
also your interests/activity level and expectations of your future dog.
We also highly recommend coming out to meet
the dogs if you are within driving distance.
How does the Deposit process work?
We ask $200.00 deposit to "hold" your place within a specific litter,
which of course comes off of the price of the puppy.
Frequently we are accepting deposits for puppies that are not yet born.
We have no control over the gender, or in some litters, colour split of the puppies.
If the puppy of your choice is not available then your deposit will be
"transferable OR refundable"
this would be your choice.
if the puppy of your choice is available and you decide
not to take the puppy for personal reasons your deposit is forfiet.
How does the Selection process work?
We do NOT select puppies before of 7 weeks of age.
Puppies are chosen in order of deposit,
this is the only fair method we have come up with.
We VERY much want our puppies to be successful in their new homes.
This requires the puppy being suitable for the home they are going to,
we will not dictate you have to take a certain puppy, we want to work
together to find the best fit for you/your family.
I would never want someone to be leaving with a puppy they were not excited
about BUT I reserve the right to not place any puppy in a unsuitable home.
A great deal of time and energy goes into evaluating each puppy.
Once the puppies are fully weaned, we really start to see them as individuals,
so after this age (7 weeks) we will start the selection process.
If you are reserving a puppy for sport or working venue
we can arrange independant puppy evaluation, but not before 8 weeks of age.
Non Breeding Contract?
I do not offer puppies with breeding rights.
For puppies purchased under the Non Breeding contract
we do not require early spay/neuter.
Do you ship puppies?
Yes, we are always shipping puppies within Canada,
we have puppies in every Province and Territory.
Flying puppies at 8 weeks of age is a very straight forward procedure,
all booking and payment is taken care of on our end.
Typical costs for shipping within Canada are approx $350.00
including the flight and the crate the puppy travels in, which is purchased new.
The puppy's flight will be booked and you are provided with email confirmation.
Full payment for the puppy and shipping must be received
no later than 24 hrs before the puppy's flight.
Due to travel restrictions we cannot offer flights to the USA.
You are welcome to contact me about alternatives to flying.
Do you accept payment plans?
unfortunately based on past experience we cannot accept payment plans.
Are the puppies Registered?
The puppies are registered thru the Canadian Kennel Club.
Your paperwork will come to you in your name within 6 months,
When can we visit our puppy?
You can visit any time after 5 weeks of age,
you will need to make appt .
When can we pick up our puppy?
You can pick up your puppy after 8 weeks of age,
you will have to pick up in order of deposit.
Do you provide references?
I am happy to provide direct references and/or information about past sibling litters.

So...I feel compelled to add some really personal information here...
I understand and respect completely that people are at times...
very anxious to speak with me,
and if you know me, then you know I LOVE telling people about my dogs.
I am always happy to answer any and all questions that you have,
really I am, and I do my very very best to respond to people in a timely fashion.
That said, I am certainly not perfect....and I have a life....
I have children and grandchildren
and a husband who I actually like quite alot.
We also have friends...and some times its nice to spend time with them.
We have a farm, including horses, cattle, sheep, chicken and ducks....
I love and enjoy all of them, but they also require care and time.
I also do not have a kennel, so our dogs live in our home with us....
I WALK.... and I walk and I walk....
Lots of days more than 8 miles
I walk when its pouring raining, when its a blizzard and at night in the pitch black...
because the dogs require it....
so please give me a break...if I dont get back to you IMMEDIATELY.
I am not on Facebook or Twitter or any other social media,
because I would actually sooner do something with my dogs
then talk about doing something with them.
Training and working with the dogs is one of the great joys of my life.
I so much hope people can understand this...
if you come out and meet them, I think you will appreciate the relationship
I have with each of them and that it reflects the amount of time I spend with them.
I recently received a nasty email..
as I had not responded to a phone call within 4 days...
and you know I am SORRY... I truly am..
but there is only so much time in a day... and I am just one person.
John tells me all the time, I need to have thicker
skin and not take things to heart so much...but I do,
I love my dogs like they are family..My life revolves around them
and I try so hard to treat them well and
with love and respect...
Having people contacting about my dogs is very important to me,
and I am always grateful and really want to do my
best to keep my clients happy.
I am so proud of my dogs and after 16 plus years of Breeding
I feel I have worked hard to build a really good reputation,
I have wonderful relationships with my clients and
LOVE hearing updates and getting pictures of our puppies.
I appreciate your patience, your inquiry is very important to me.
Email is the best way to contact me,
if you text then that is great too.
If you only prefer to talk on the phone, I am sorry...
but you may waiting more than two days..
because my life is crazy and busy and hectic...just as many of yours is..
I greatly appreciate you contacting me...
and I will do my very best to get back to you, ASAP.
I Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
