Omg! You're Getting a Puppy!!
Congratulations! I am SO excited for you! So many things to cover - let's dive right in!!!
I will email you the contract, and final invoice shortly but for now can you let me know the following...
There are two online forms on this page to fill out and submit. Please keep scrolling down to be sure you don't miss a thing!
Your pup will be ready to leave us at 8 Weeks Old. Please see the initial Puppy Picking email, or check in the Puppy Nursery/Puppy Page for the exact dates. Your pup is welcome to stay with us through 10 weeks old if you need some time to prepare, however, we have learned that the sooner they leave us the easier time they have adjusting to their new environment.
Please click the below button to see your delivery options & fill out the form underneath with your preferences.
Please fill out the below ASAP - We book up fast!
Unlike booking the delivery, you can take some time (but not too much!) to get back with us on the following.
NAME: Some folks like to keep the name I choose, and some like to change it. I do not start teaching pups their names until they are chosen so they don't get confused. Therefore, if you have a different name in mind, it's no problem at all to change it and for me to teach it to them. Just let me know what you decide.
VET APPOINTMENT: Per our contract, you need to set up a Veterinarian appointment within the first 72 hours of obtaining your puppy. Please do this ASAP. Tell them you're getting a new puppy and they need a health exam. Look on the calendar to determine what day they turned 7 weeks old and let them know that is when they had their first vaccine. Your Vet will put you on a vaccine schedule. You will also want to bring a stool sample with you to be tested for parasites. If your pup tests positive for worms, coccidia, or giardia don't panic. It is common for puppies. Most puppies carry parasites in their gut and when they endure a stressful situation such as traveling or a new environment the parasites will shed. Treatment is very easy and inexpensive. Your puppy will already be microchipped. You will be given the number and all health records upon delivery.
PLAYDATES: Do you want to connect with other people who have one of our pups for a play date? Click the button below to see if their is anyone in your area! Please fill out the form to be added - we strongly encourage this!
PET INSURANCE: All of our pups come with the option to sign up for Trupanion Pet Insurance. If you sign up with them and use our code (we don't get anything for it) you will get a free 30 days.
FOOD: If you don't already know what you want to do about food, you need to start thinking about it and make a decision soon. All the pups have been raised on Purina Pro Plan & Royal Canin food. If possible, I recommend keeping your pup on this food until they are completely settled in its new environment. Pups leaving me, their mom, their puppy friends, and their only known environment is a big change for them. I like to try to minimize the stress and not change everything at once. However, if you prefer to change foods as soon as you bring the pup home, I just ask that you do a slow transition to the new food. Pups can get very sick when you change their food suddenly and you have to do it slowly. Instructions how to do this are in the VIP area under "Food & Treats." If you're ordering food and anything online, please place the order ASAP so it arrives in time of your pup’s homecoming. If you plan to change the food, I need to know so I can send enough home with your pup to help with the transition.

ONLINE PUPPY SCHOOL: Your pup comes with a free lifetime membership to BAXTER & Bella's Online Puppy School. You will receive your welcome email from the school in the next 48 hours. If you do not get it please let me know ASAP.
