We estimate the wait for a puppy to be 6 months to 1 year at this time
Puppies are raised in our home and receive lots of love and attention from everyone who lives in (and visits) our home right from the day they are born. We raise all of our litters on raw food. They stay with us until they are 9 weeks of age. During this time, we provide lots of socializing and as many experiences as we can. We do our best to set them up to succeed! We try to make sure they experience numerous substrates (carpet, laminate, tile, wooden decks, stones, grass, rubber flooring, etc.), different sounds and noises, car rides, meeting different adult dogs (in a safe way), meeting our cats, exposure to children and different people, the idea of crate training, and the list goes on. We take pictures and videos and post them to our facebook page on a weekly or even daily basis.
Please keep in mind that we always reserve a pup from each litter for ourselves, although we might not always keep one.
Also, the owner/breeder of the stud dog may choose to keep a pup from the litter as well.
We have 1 - 3 litters a year and we are very fussy when it comes to agreeing to let a family have one of our puppies. We feel we have a duty to the puppies to be this way! We feel that these pups are an extension of our family.
We want all of our puppy owners to maintain contact with us and supply feedback on the quality of our puppies. This will aid in our goal to continue breeding healthy, sound, intelligent goldens that will exemplify the breed standard. This means that we want to keep in touch for the life of the dog!
A fully fenced yard and keeping your dog intact (ie. not spayed/neutered) until over 18 months of age is required. Preference will be given to homes that will continue with the raw food diet, take puppy socialization classes and crate train.
We do not ship our puppies.
If you are interested in a puppy, please contact us directly by email to first.
We will ask you to fill out an adoption form once you've made contact with us. Filling out the adoption form does not guarantee a puppy, but helps us to know if your lifestyle would be suitable for a Jaad pup.
Next, we will invite you and your family for a personal interview and visit.
Once we have met you, if all goes well, you will be added to a waiting list for the next litter.
After puppies are born, we will contact the families on our waiting list in order. Gender preference will be given on a first come, first served basis. A deposit is not taken until we have pups available.
Puppies will be chosen by us to ensure correct placement, this is done at 8 weeks of age.
