1. Who is the Sire? Do you have pictures? How is his disposition?
We have two stud dogs that we use, they are both absolutely stunning dogs with great, but very different temperaments and personalities.
Tripp, he is usually bred with Livie and is Lola's father. (So he will never be used to sire one of Lola's litters.) He is a goofy, fun loving, lap dog. He is easily excited and insists on being face to face with his people. He loves to be outside, swimming, running, and exploring. Tripp was our inspiration to get Livie. When we first met Tripp, we all fell in love. His lively personality made him unlike any dog we had ever met! We knew right away that we needed that kind of love and energy in our home. A few weeks later, we found our Livie Lou!
Teddy is the other stud dog we use! He is always bred with Lola and could potentially sire a litter with Livie. His name says it all, he is a big teddy bear! He has an old soul.. is very calm, loving and easy going. He is incredibly affectionate and loves to be cuddled, rubbed, and positioned right on your lap!
2. Is it really safe for my puppy to fly home?
It would be great if everyone was able to meet us in person and pick their puppy up from our home, however, this is not always practical or feasible for everyone. Flying home is a perfectly safe alternative! We go out of our way to make sure our puppies have an easy, stress free journey home. For starters, we crate train our puppies around 6 weeks of age. So, by the time they are ready to go home, they are already used to the crate and will likely sleep through their entire flight. For added comfort, we place a blanket in the crate that Livie has slept with, that way they have their mothers scent to help them feel safe! We will find the shortest flight time possible, take care of all the paperwork and booking, and provide you with all the information you will need to track your puppy on their way home! I can assure you, we would not allow flying if we thought it would traumatize your puppy. You're puppy may arrive a little nervous being surrounded by so many new people, but will warm up quickly with plenty of love and affection.
3. Do I get to pick out my puppy?
Yes, Yes, Yes! While I am happy to provide you with all the personality traits, quirks, energies, and dispositions of each puppy to help aid you in your decision, I will not pretend to know your family better than you do!
4. What kind of dog food do you feed your dogs?
Just like humans, dogs crave variety! So, we have a few high quality, grain free options that we rotate between! Our favorite is definitely Taste of the Wild! However, we have learned that a grain free diet is often too rich for young puppies. During the early weeks, we feed our puppies Purina Pro Plan! The puppy formula is what our vet recommends as a first food for puppies! If you want to transfer your puppy to a grain free diet, our vet recommends to slowly make that transition around 4-6 months of age!
