I will place you on my waiting list once you have filled out a puppy application and i have approved you. I do not take deposits until pregnancy has been confirmed. My deposits are non refundable. I will do my best to give you what you want, however, I can not foresee what nature is going to provide! I can't guarantee gender or color. If I can not accommodate your request, your deposit may carry over to another litter.
You may visit our home/kennel at any time with prior notice. Please do not visit any other puppies prior to the visit. You will be asked to remove your shoes and to use hand sanitizer. The only time I may say no visit is the first two weeks after puppies are born or if a problem arises.
Once the puppies are born you will receive updates however you want to receive them. Email, text, Facebook.
When the puppies are whelped, they will be on camera! Around 4 weeks they may get moved to the kennel, they will also be on camera. (maybe in the kennel if we get camera working)
Once the puppies are born I will stay with them. Puppies are raised using “Puppy Culture” as well as a few other concepts I feel are useful.
Tails are docked and dew claws removed prior to 3 days. At this time the vet also gives them and mom a check up.
Puppies will be wormed beginning at 4 weeks. First shots are at 8 weeks. Puppies will also receive a well check and vet certificate before they go home. ( I follow my vets protocol)
When you get your puppy you will receive a notebook that contains pictures of all stages, birth notes, a list of firsts, shot records, the contract and other helpful information.
You will also receive a blanket with moms “smell”, a sample of their current food (Purina Pro Plan Chicken and Rice Puppy), and some other goodies.
Before your puppy leaves, we work on crate training, leash training, beginning potty training, exposure to different noises, surfaces, situations, and some obedience. They will have been on many car rides and exposed to the grooming table. Nails done every couple of days.
I do my best to place the correct puppy in the correct situation. I plan on getting to know you better so that can be achieved.
Your puppy will be micro chipped and registered with AKC CAR prior to leaving.
Your puppy will be pre registered with AKC. Once a name is decided and the puppy paid for in full, the registration will be transferred to you.. I am a Breeder of Merit Bronze and I plan on continuing!
At 8 weeks I do my final evaluations. After this is done, they may head to their new homes! I evaluate conformation as well as temperament. Everyone has a different idea of what they want so I do not use the term “Pick” I breed for myself, therefore I get my choice first. Once I make my decision the rest of the puppies will be placed based on my getting to know you and knowing my puppies. I do my very best to make everyone happy.
Your puppy will be given a puppy name based on our current litter theme This makes for easy identification and aids in training. The puppy name can be changed when they go home!
The registered name will begin with Hotwired. We have lots of suggestions for registered names but you as the owner have the final say.
Finally, you receive my support at any time! If you are having a training issue or question, I will do my best to answer it. If I do not know, I will get the answer! I am fortunate to have a huge circle of fellow breeders and friends to support me! I have set up a Facebook page for my Hotwired German Shorthaired Pointer Family. This has proved to be a great way to meet other puppy owners, post pictures and brags and get support if needed!
