Puppy Pickup

Important Information

  • I like to give everyone a 1 hour time slot.  This will give you time to pick your new family friend, go over paperwork, & I can answer any questions you might have.  

  • When you pick up your puppy, they will be on solid food. Blue Buffalo Lamb & Oatmeal.  If needed I can send you home with a 5 day supply.  This gives you time to pick some up or if you wish to switch foods you can gradually do so.  Mixing the new food with the previous food makes it easier on the puppy’s digestive system.  

  • Your puppy will know how to use a dog door.  Puppies here have been potty trained to go outside & use a litter box at night.    

  • I recommend bringing a blanket/towel that you can rub on mom dog.  This is something your puppy can sleep with, that can aid in transitioning homes.   

  • Another useful tool is the Smart Pet Love Snuggle Puppy Behavioral Aid Dog Toy with a heartbeat.

  • I highly recommend using stainless steel bowls for food and water. I have found them to be the longest lasting and easiest to clean.

  • Having a lot of toys is a must.  For durability I like the Kong brand. Some squeaky toy are also a good idea (you will be sent home with one).  Lots of chew bones (I like the nylon chews). I stay away from rawhide chews.  

  • When your puppy is chewing on something they are not supposed to (like shoes) tap your puppy's' nose and with a firm voice tell them NO, then replace it with an appropriate chew toy. You always want to end with a positive with your puppy.  

  • Keep in mind these are only suggestions. You and your new puppy will get a routine that works for you and your family.  

  • Please feel free to text, email or call with any questions you might have. 


I look forward to meeting you all.
