WHAT IS INVOLVED?
I usually place my pick puppies, both males, and females in Guardian homes at 8 -12 weeks of age. Sometimes I also have older puppies and adults. Once in their care, Guardian homes assume the responsibility for primary everyday care and food expenses, basic veterinary care, grooming, and training for the puppy. I take care of any breeding-related costs like health testing, conformation showing (when applicable), and spaying/neutering at retirement.
Males will need to come to us for breeding and stay for a week.
Females will remain with us for a week to two weeks for their dates with males and come back a week before their due date to raise the litter for another 7-8 weeks. My females usually have 3 litters and are retired from breeding by 5 years old. I will spay and neuter the dogs before transferring them into the full ownership of the guardian home.
