About Your Puppy

Our puppies are handled multiple times daily. We follow Empowered Puppy training provided through Badass Breeders. The pups receive ENS from days 3 - 14 days. At 3.5 weeks they get to explore the world and keep an enriched schedule to prepare them for their home.  

They are raised and taught manners to live with children, other dogs, cats, chickens and goats. Puppies are also litter box trained and use puppy pads. I utilize the following enrichment methods: Puppy Culture, Empowered Puppy, and Early Neurological Stimulation.

We offer a 2 year health guarantee. The health guarantee covers genetic defects and gentle disease.

If the puppy should die from a suspected congenital defect within 12 months of its birth date, an autopsy must be performed at the purchaser’s expense by a veterinarian. If the autopsy shows a congenital defect as the reason for death, the seller will provide another puppy of equal value to the purchaser. A written statement from the licensed veterinarian must be provided with the Seller’s name. The guarantee is void in the event of an indeterminable or inconclusive diagnosis.
