Why So Pricey
Most dog owners realize the least expense to purchasing a purebred puppy is the actual purchase price. Acquiring a healthy well bred dog of any breed is an expensive venture, and seldom is there much profit from producing litters of puppies from responsible breeders.
The typical expenses of a breeder starts with purchasing a well bred dog, and quite often a well bred stud, as well. Then comes tons of expensive testing for both the Damn and Sire, and the list of expenses never really ends & go on . . . . .
Our dogs come out of European champion bred lines. They have been purposefully paired to produce healthy companion and performance dogs.
Both parents are negative (normal – clear) for the PRA GM1, JDCM, and IC genetic markers. Read further details here.
What We Expect
What we expect when purchasing a puppy is that you have spent a great deal of time researching all the aspects associated with the Portuguese Water Dog Breed. Afterwards, you have fully committed yourself to the next 12 – 15 years of meeting the daily time requirements and training, as well as, costs involved with owning a Portuguese Water.
They are well worth the time and committment as they are highly energetic and enthusiastic about returning that same dedication and loyalty tenfold, to their families.
We are dedicated to all of our puppies. Our home is always open to the return of any dog no matter how old, if one should find themselves in any circumstance where they are no longer able to care for the dog. We expect to be the first ones called and notified in these situations .
What To Expect
While raising our puppies someone is generally always home unless out on some quick errands. The puppies have had a lot of hands on and are accustom to bathing and nail clipping.
They have been well socialized with various different people and other dogs and expect this will continue with new owners as the most influential time having the greatest impact is between the ages of 4 – 16 weeks.
They have started the initial stages of potty training and other basic training, which automatically comes with the other dogs around.
Lastly, caring for puppies round the clock, tunes the breeder into establishing each individual puppies characteristics. This along with basic temperament testing helps to determines the best matches for puppies and their owners.
What You Get
When purchasing a puppy besides getting a well bred strong healthy puppy, your puppy will have had it’s rear dew claws removed (done at 4 days old). It will have been wormed, had its first set of vaccines, & a complete veterinarian check up.
It is a good idea to set an appointment prior to picking your puppy up, as its next set of shots is due when they turn 9 weeks old.
We will pay for and Register your puppy with AKC, and they will send you paperwork regarding free puppy insurance for the first 30 days. You will also receive a puppy care kit so you can focus on all the necessary concerns of caring for your puppy.
In the kit you will receive a cloth which will have the mother and litters scent. This will help to provide comfort as the puppy is adjusting to its new home.
All puppies come with a buyer/seller agreement. The agreement is meant to insure the puppies and prospective owners have promising futures. Our puppies are sold as companion and performance dogs, meaning they can show in all AKC classes except conformation.
