You are always welcome to pick up your puppy here at our home when they are eight weeks old. It is often difficult, however, to come back here just two weeks after choosing your puppy if you live hours away and have young children. Because of this, we are usually able to offer personal delivery of your puppy to a predetermined location. Many of our pups find their permanent homes in either the San Francisco Bay Area or the Los Angeles/Orange County vicinities. A minimum delivery fee of $150-$200, dependent on your location, will be charged. We need at least two puppies traveling in order for a delivery to be offered. We do not go further south than Orange County so if you are a resident of the San Diego/San Bernadino areas you are welcome to meet us there.
The “go home” day can be quite stressful for an 8 week old puppy as he is leaving everything familiar to him behind. We have found that traveling to a delivery location along with his siblings is much less stressful for most pups than traveling alone. They will typically “dog pile” upon each other, feeling the warmth and comfort of their littermates and sleep most of the way.
Door-to-door delivery may also be available for an additional charge depending upon your location. Please feel free to ask for more information if you are interested in this specialized service which typically runs $300, dependent upon your location.
Please note that a $25 per day boarding fee will be applied for puppies remaining here after their “go-home” date at 8 weeks provided we are available. We strongly encourage all puppies to go home when their littermates leave as it is hard on a puppy to remain behind after all its siblings are gone. This is an extremely important time for bonding with his new owners and socializing in his new surroundings. Please make every effort to have your calendar free for pick-up or delivery at this crucial time for your new four-legged family member.
