PURCHASING A PUPPY

PURCHASE PROCESS

We believe the key to developing a healthy, rewarding relationship, lies in starting your puppy correctly. This will set the stage for a balanced, lasting relationship and a puppy that can handle transition into his new home and family quickly and easily. We evaluate our puppies’ individual personalities and temperaments, in order to find the best fit our families.

Please read all information below and review our Buyer's Responsibility Agreement and Health Guarantee prior to submitting your puppy application. Once you have submitted your application please call or text us to go over your application.

(Deposits are non-refundable NO EXCEPTIONS) You may transfer to another litter within 1 year of the date your deposit was received.

 

We reserve the right to refuse the sale at any time prior to the puppy going home.

If you have chosen a litter and for whatever reason change your mind after the puppies are 5 weeks old your deposit is no longer transferrable. 

 

Puppies are chosen in deposit order received on gotcha day in person. 

 

We post, or send pictures of our litters at birth, 3-weeks, 5-weeks, and 7.5 weeks. Gotcha Day is at 8 weeks. Our pups are high in demand so we reserve quickly and there usually is a waiting list. If a certain time frame is important to you, please reserve early.

HEALTH TESTING

All of our Wheaten Terriers have been tested for PLN markers associated with variant gene testing. All poodles have been tested for Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), Neonatal Encephalopathy With Seizures (NEWS),Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration (PRA-PRCD), and von Willebrand Disease Type I (vWDI).

We do not dock tails as it is no longer the breed standard! There is no health benefit to the puppy. Doodles should never have a docked tail! We love and cherish our pups and want nothing but the best for them!

Worms, Coccidia, and Giardia

Our puppies are throughly dewormed at 2, 4, & 6 weeks of age. They are stool checked 2 weeks before they go home for worms, coccidia, and giardia. Even though we test, we ask that you also have your pup tested as soon as you can make your first vet appointment. Some of these things are not always in every poop!! These parasites are very common and are easily treated.

GOTCHA DAY

PLACEMENT

As a breeder I spend a lot of time with the puppies getting to know their personalities. Puppy temperament testing helps me choose the best puppy for the right person or family. I understand that each family is looking for something special and different in a puppy. I plan my litters in advance by talking to each family with their goals in mind. Once I know what you are looking for in a puppy, I can give you information on which puppy might suit your needs. Each famliy does make the final decision on which puppy they choose.

GOTCHA DAY

We keep our puppies for 8-9 weeks so that the puppy will have their first vaccinations and a healthy mentality to be the perfect family pet, leaving the litter and mom to early does not give your puppy stability and sound thinking. On Gotcha Day all families will have an appointment to come see the mom (and sometimes dad). We go over all paperwork and medical records. I will give each family their time slot a week prior, if you cannot make your appointment you will have to choose by picture or FaceTime. Please be on time for your appointment, not early you will have to wait until your scheduled time. If you are late you may have to loose time if there is an appointment immediately following.

WHAT TO BRING

I recommend you bring a puppy blanket, paper towels, and something to put the puppy in, a basket etc. They usually want to be held, thus a crate is not necessary unless traveling alone. If you are planning to make a stop make sure you bring your leash and harness. Do not worry about food, treats or water until you get home.

NOTE: We reserve the right to withhold any puppy for our breeding program. We reserve the right to refuse to sell a puppy when circumstances indicate it is not in the best interest of the puppy.

Feeding Instructions

 Most fruits and veggies make great snacks for dogs. Make sure they’re safe and washed free of pesticides before you feed them. Stay away from raisins and grapes they are poisonous.

 

 OUR DOGS AND PUPS ARE EATING PURINA PRO PLAN FOCUS LAMB & RICE

Start your puppy with 1/3-1/2 cup dry food each feeding. Our feed schedule is twice daily, 7AM and 5PM. NuVet vitamin every morning, at first crumble over their food.  If your puppy eats it all and is looking for more, move up to 1/2 a cup each feeding. Continue to gradually increase their food amount. At 3-months they should be eating 1 cup twice daily. Sometimes the first few days are a tough transition so it is always a good idea to have wet puppy food on hand just in case. 

 

Start out providing 3-4oz of water every 3-4 hours. gradually increase as they get age. No water after 7PM to help your puppy make it thought the night for the first few months. 

 

By 8-months, you should be able to let your puppy graze as they wish with both food and water.

VISITOR POLICY

S’Wheaten your life is dedicated to raising the healthiest puppy possible for your family. For this reason, we have necessary policies in place for visitors. Parvo is an opportunistic and fatal disease that can infect a puppy in a matter of 24 hrs. It is shed by infected dogs and can live for months on hard surfaces and grass. It is not a disease that affects humans therefore it would be difficult to know whether a member of one of our visiting families was a carrier. There are also many other virus that are very dangerous to babies and mamas. This is simply a risk we will not take with your puppy-to-be.

 

For this reason we will not allow any visitors who do not have a vested interest in the litter. Also Puppies need to be vaccinated prior. We only extend visitation privileges to families who are picking up their puppy. Thank you for your understanding.
