***** NOTICE *****
I will not be offering puppies past 2013. I may have a couple of litters in 2013, but I will not be breeding past this year.
Breeding dogs for soundness and conformation takes time and skill. However, even in the best breeding lines, there will be pups that exhibit traits that are deserving of SHOW, some offspring will not be show material but be perfect for BREEDING to further great genes resulting in great puppies, and some are destined to be awesome companion dogs.
TRAINING: I potty train my puppies in a manner that allows them to easily transition to their new homes with their new owners. Puppies are potty trained on NEWSPAPER as soon as they are up on their feet (starting at approx. 3 weeks). If I have puppies long enough, they are trained to use a doggie door and eliminate outdoors. I start puppies early on the "come" command, which is essential to have a successful relationship with your dog.
SHIPPING: If I ship your puppy, I will be required to make a vet appointment in order to obtain the Health Certificate required by ALL AIRLINES. I try to send puppies on non-stop flights; however, this is not always possible. I will accommodate your schedule the best I can. I provide new owners with instructions and recommendations for transitioning your new puppy. Your new puppy will be VERY HAPPY to see you when you arrive at the airport!!!
I ship to most major airports. Shipping fee is $300.** I only fly puppies on non-stop or two-legged flights on ALASKA, DELTA OR CONTINENTAL PET SAFE. On these airlines, pets fly in a pressurized, climate-controlled cargo cabin much like passengers. I WILL NOT put a puppy on a on a 3-legged flight or a stand-by, as-space-permits cargo flight, which is an alternative some breeders use to save money on airfare. I CARE AND WORRY ABOUT MY PUPPIES AND THEIR COMFORTABLE FLIGHT until they arrive at their destination --- YOU. I provide new owners with an on-line link to flight status* of puppies that I fly, and I personally check their status all day until they arrive and I maintain phone contact with you to confirm their safe arrival.
*Flight status provided by Alaska, Delta and Continental Airlines websites.
**Fee subject to increase based on airlines' perceived cost of fuel.
QUESTIONS? I welcome any and all questions about my dogs, my kennel practices or the Chihuahua breed in general. I also offer on-line support to new puppy owners in order that you have the best possible experience. Just email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly, I am obligated, as a lover of Chihuahuas, to inform you that:
CHIHUAHUAS ARE LIKE POTATO CHIPS
YOU CAN'T HAVE
