What comes with my puppy?

Your puppy will come to you healthy, happy, and ready to be part of your family.  We provide our puppies with socialization training during their first 8+ weeks so that they are conditioned for being handled, loud noises, children, strangers, and other dogs/pets. We also "litter" train our puppies to astroturf which should prove to be an easy transition for house training.  Also included with our puppies are: AKC registration application, 1 year genetic health guarantee, microchip with registration information, food to enable continuance of their diet or transition time to another food, temporary pet insurance, and a goody bag of more essentials. A list of what we provide is included in our checklist for your new puppy found here.

What is the process for reserving a puppy?

We will contact everyone on our mailing list with future or pending litters. Interested buyers will need to complete an application to help us be sure our puppies are going to great homes that are prepared for their needs.  Once approved we require a $500 non-refundable deposit. The deposit isn't refundable but does not expire in the event the current litter doesn't have the puppy you are looking for. We want to ensure you and the puppy are the right fit so that the puppy has truly found its forever home.

At 5 weeks old we will allow those who are approved, deposited buyers to select their puppy in order of receipt of the application and deposit.

Final payment will be required prior to or time of delivery of the puppy which is no earlier than 8 weeks of age.

What are the details of your health guarantee?

Your puppy will come with their first set of shots/worming and a certificate of health from our vet. Our puppies have a one year health guarantee for any death due to genetic defects, where a full refund would be issued or a replacement puppy. We require you to have your puppy examined by your vet within 3 business days of leaving our care to confirm the puppy's health.  For the sake of the health of your puppy, please keep your puppy isolated from other pets and animals until this vet check.

What food and how much should I feed my puppy?

Ask ten bulldog owners what food is the best and you will get 10 different answers. Truth is, bulldogs are sensitive to their diets and they all react differently. You want a food that is protein rich and watch for redness between the toes, the quality of their coat and skin, and their digestion (yes, I mean farting.) Once you have a food that they do well on, do not change it.  They don't need variety to be happy, they need quality.

Our adult dogs are fed a diet of Purina Pro Plan 30/20 as recommended by our vet who is an expert on bulldogs as well as a breeder and reproduction specialist. They are doing very well with no sensitivities or gas. We provide you with a bag of Purina Pro Plan Puppy food to enable you to continue their current diet or allow time for you to SLOWLY transition your puppy to a different food of your choice.  Have a conversation with your vet to determine what direction you go.

Initially at 8 weeks we are feeding the puppies a 1/2 cup of kibble three times a day.  Continue this until 3 months old. For guidance on the volume and frequency of feeding beyond three months, consult your food packaging. Bulldogs are medium to large breed dogs with a maturity size of 40 - 50+ pounds.  More information can be found here.

Is my puppy house broken when I get it?

In short, not fully.  But they are 'litter' trained which means they are trained to go on a specific spot of astroturf we keep in their whelping area and our exterior play area.  The fact they are already conditioned to potty in a specific spot will help in transitioning them to pottying outdoors and aid in getting them on a routine that works for both of you. 

We spend a lot of time socializing and working with our puppies to have them as ready for their new homes as possible. Bulldogs are notoriously difficult to house break (of course some get it right away, but some are stubborn!) They need routine.  Initially they will need potty breaks every hour.  Over time you'll spread those out to every 2-3 then 3-4 hours.  Always give them a potty break after eating and drinking and when they first wake up. They train well to a behavior like ringing a bell or sitting by the door when they need to go out. Soon they will let you know they have to go. 

The key is routine and positive reinforcement.
