All Nightline puppies are CKC registered and sold on non-breeding agreements. All puppies are docked, dewormed, microchipped, vet checked and have had their first vaccinations. They come with a complete puppy package that includes photos and paperwork on sire and dam, a 5 generation pedigree, vaccination certificate and health check, ear taping instructions and grooming instructions. A printout from our kennel that will answer any and all questions regarding feeding, toys, housebreaking, training, children, etc..is given out to every future owner before pickup dates to help you get prepared.
We give very specific instructions on how to raise a healthy happy puppy and the only dogs used in our breeding program are not only beautiful but also sound of body and mind. Breedings are done with health tested parents only (OFA hips and elbows, PRA, thyroid). Puppies are fully guaranteed against severe crippling hip dysplasia and life-threatening genetic/congenital illness like epilepsy and cardiomyopathy. If your puppy should be so unfortunate enough to develop any of these, we will replace him or her with another puppy when you are ready and based on availability. We would not require that you return the sick puppy to us unless you wanted to.
It has become increasingly difficult to have ear cropping done locally and therefore we can no longer offer ear cropping for our puppies. I can recommend vets in the Toronto area where you can arrange to have your puppy cropped if this is something you want done. We still provide ear taping instructions for those who are planning on the procedure.
Puppies generally are ready to go to their new homes between 7-8 weeks of age. Once the puppies have arrived and we know we have something for you we do require a $600 non-refundable deposit to reserve a puppy. This breed is not suitable for everyone. Only people that we have either met or talked to at length beforehand and we are sure will offer a great life for one of our puppies are put on a waiting list for an upcoming litter. Occasionally we do have older puppies and young adults available as well. We prefer if at all possible that people come in person to pick up their puppy. If shipping is required, the cost of shipping and crate is extra.
Thank you for your interest in my dogs. Unfortunately, after more then 6 straight years of endless bad luck combined with the enormous increase in the costs of veterinary care needed to continue to do this properly, we have no choice now but to step back and take a break from actively breeding for the foreseeable future. This is a hobby that I have loved and lived for for 40 years so this decision was not taken lightly. Never say never but for now I'm taking time to regroup and hit the reset button. Thank you for understanding.
