HEALTH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING:
We plan our puppies far in advance and keep a list of people who are interested in bringing a puppy into their life.
Dogs and bitches chosen for breeding will have,Â at minimum, testing done as recommended for the breed by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals as well as any other tests to ensure the best possible health of the litter and the breed going forward.
Here is a link to the OFA recommendations for Bull Terriers
HOW DO I GET A PUPPY:
First step is to fill out and sent in the Puppy Questionnaire.
Once I have that, I put you on my list. As we get closer to breeding dates, I contact everyone to make sure they are still interested.
For each litter there will be a Litter page where the pedigree of the litter, photos of sire and dam, and then, ultimately, pictures of the litter will be posted.
Over the 8 weeks the puppies are with us, we will evaluate type, temperament, and suitability for people wanting a puppy. Unfortunately, just because you are on the list does NOT guarantee you will get a puppy.Â I will keep in touch with people to let them know as the litter matures.
Price is often an very sensitive subject for people. Health testing to ensure the best possible litters is very expensive as is securing the right sire. If the sire is from a distant place, the cost to use him can be significant.
Overall, you can plan to spend between $3800-4500 CDN for a puppy depending on whether you are looking for pet or show quality puppy.Â There are a lot of costs that go into a breeding which is why there is a wide rage for price. Costs during COVID-19 have been significant so this price is always subject to change.
Co-ownership may also be a conversation with a show quality puppy.
What is the difference? Well pet puppies come with a non-breeding contract and an expectation that, at the right age, the puppy with be fixed. Show quality puppies are not required to be spayed/neutered and indeed are encouraged to be put into a breeding program.
THE TRAVELLING PUPPY
Getting a puppy to you can be quite a complicated process, especially if you live quite distant from us.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you are going to require travel arrangements to get your puppy and we will work with you to make this as safe and non-traumatic for the puppy as possible.
