All of our puppies are well socialized, registered, micro-chipped, have had the first set of shots, Vet checked, de-wormed and come with a written health guarantee.
We offer a puppy package that includes a care booklet and training booklet to help you take the best possible care of your new family member. Your puppy comes with his or her own basic supplies to get you started. We also offer advice on what extra supplies are of benefit.
We offer regular pictures updates, at the very least weekly, but likely more often, so you may see the development of your puppy. This helps with the wait.
We also offer regular visits to see the puppies as they're growing. It is important that the puppies are socialized with many different people. We take care to ensure their health by ensuring hand washing, etc. It is much better for them to see more people than to shelter them. It also helps their immune systems to be safely exposed to the outside world.
All our puppies are exposed to different sounds and smells. We play different types of music to them, and see that they have a variety of experiences.
We also do early neurological stimulation to boost immunity and help them be calmer, better adjusted in life. This helps them become confident, non fearful companions, who have an easier time adapting to new situations. We take them to visit the elderly and children.
We have temperament assessments done on our puppies by a professional dog trainer in order to help us carefully match the personality of your puppy with you and your lifestyle. This is just an extra tool to see how they respond in an unfamiliar situation.
We do health testing on all of our breeding dogs prior to being bred for eyes, patellas, heart and hips. We also do genetic testing for some rare diseases to make sure we do not pass on genetic problems. Although health problems are rare in the Coton, we want to make sure that the proper testing is done in order to keep it that way.
All puppies are from excellent lines. We typically post most of our health testing at OFA. Did you know that you can look up any dog’s health testing by typing in their full registered name as long as the breeder publishes the results?
We offer a commitment to always be available for advice throughout your companion’s life. I am a certified dog trainer through The Animal Behavior College in order to help out with training advice.
