DUE TO COVID-19 WE WILL NOT BE HAVING ANY POTENTIAL PUPPY FAMILIES OUT TO OUR HOME.
TO ENSURE THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF EVERYONE, ALL INTERVIEWS AND PUPPY VISITS FOR THE TIME BEING WILL BE DONE ONLINE THRU ‘SKYPE’ UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
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!
We will ask you to fill out a questionnaire once you've made contact with us. Filling out the questionnaire 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.
Due to COVID, the way we are currently working the meet and greet interviews is only meeting with the top 8 - 10 families on the list when we have an upcoming litter. We meet individually outside in nice weather or via zoom. Once the families we have met with bring home a pup, we will start meeting with the next 8 - 10 on our list in preparation for the next litter.
Although we are keeping a list, please note that it is not official or guaranteed that you will be getting a puppy at any point in time. We have found that some families decide to find pups elsewhere or just do not respond to our updates. The list will change and evolve a lot over! We do keep all those on our waitlist updated and we do keep track of everyone based on when they sent in the response to our questionnaire. All we ask is that families please let us know if they find pups elsewhere or are no longer interested so we can keep our list as up to date as possible.
Once we have met you, if all goes well, you will be added to a waiting list for a future litter.
After puppies are born, we will contact the families on our waiting list in order. The order is done by the date the questionnaire was received, not the date you first contacted us.
Gender preference will be given on a first come, first served basis.
Around 3 or 4 weeks of age, a deposit will then be requested from families that we have messaged and have confirmed interest in a pup.
We will hold a few "open houses" (ONLY for the families receiving a puppy for that litter) and we expect your attendance at at least one of them.
Puppies will be chosen by us to ensure correct placement, this is done at 8 weeks of age.
*see FAQ for more information*
If you are interested in a puppy, please contact us directly by email to (keep in mind that the wait is 1 to 3 YEARS). Please only contact us if you are willing to wait for a puppy!
*Please note that if you do not respond to our emails we take this as indication that you are no longer interested in one of our pups and you have been removed from the waiting list.
A home with a fully fenced yard is a requirement for our puppies, and we do not allow our pups to go to homes with invisible fencing. We have seen dogs with burn marks from the shock collar, dogs that run off the property to chase a rabbit and won't come back into the yard because it will shock them coming back in just like it shocks them going out. As well, an invisible fence does not protect your dog from other dogs or wild animals that might wander onto your property.
Keeping your dog intact (ie. not spayed/neutered) until over 18 months of age for females and 2 years of age for males 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.
