Your puppy will be ready to go home at 8 weeks old. At this point, he or she will have had all age-appropriate shots, microchips, vet checks, and dewormings. All of their vet and health records will be provided for you along with a grooming, training, and puppy care information pack. We work hard to prepare you and your puppy for the best transition home possible. Our puppy go-home pack is carefully thought through to help prepare you and your pup for success. We keep our puppies on a strict schedule for the weeks leading up to the transition to your home. This is to help you and your puppy have a roadmap for your first few days home. Many of our families report their pups sleep through the night and have little to no accidents in the house when our schedule is followed.
Once your payment is made in full, we will schedule a date and time for you to pick up your puppy. If you know that you will not be able to pick up your puppy by the required date, you will need to let us know ASAP so we can confirm we are available for the additional time needed. If pups are not picked up at 8 weeks an additional $25/boarding fee will apply for every day after 8 weeks.
We prefer that families pick up their pups in person so that we can show you the training protocols that we have been working on as well as get to meet each other in person. We understand this is not always possible though, so we have a list of preferred ground and air transporters that we trust that we can refer to you if needed. It is the responsibility of all puppy families to make all arrangements with the transporters directly. We are willing to speak with and assist them as needed.
While transporting a pup out of state might seem like a daunting task, we have successfully placed puppies all over the USA. Our pups are crate trained, exposed to car rides, noises, variety of people, sights, and sounds in the 8 weeks we have them. We find they tend to travel very well and normally sleep through flights. We are happy to meet you at the Denver or Colorado Springs airport so you can fly with your puppy or help you arrange travel with one of our trusted flight nannies. Flight nannies are trained professionals that carry your puppy onto their flight and hand-deliver it to you at your local airport. Prices for flight nannies can vary depending on seasonality, location and availability. Average cost is around $600.
