Older Puppy Program
So many people call me asking if I have an older puppy or young adult dog available that one day I thought maybe I should try offering a new service.  What if I keep a puppy and train it until it is six months old?  By then the dog is pretty reliable about pottying outside, or on designated surfaces such as pee pads, and it knows basic obedience commands.  
With that in mind, I kept a puppy from my last litter until she was six months old before offering her for sale.  Kemet was an easy dog with a great personality.  She was a little shy like her mom and I thought she would benefit from extra socialization to overcome that.  Kemi went home last December at age seven months and was already working on off lead training.  She went potty on command and was pretty much house trained.  I decided that it was feasible to offer older puppies as long as I have a definite home waiting.

Here is how the Older Puppy Program works: the puppy buyer has to request the service in the beginning.  I cannot train more than one puppy at a time so the first to request to participate in the program will be the only one for that litter.

The new family must give a good faith deposit of 50% of the purchase price (fully refundable) to reserve the slot for that litter when the puppies are 10 weeks old.  The purpose of the deposit is to ensure that the puppy has a home at the end of the program.

The new family must cover all expenses that they would have to pay if the puppy were in their home.  This includes vet care, preventative medications for heartworms and fleas, and any training classes.  

There is no additional cost for training that I do or for housing the puppy for the extra four months.

 That is it!  Pretty simple and hopefully great for people who want a partially trained dog rather than a 10 week old puppy.
