1). What is our adoption process? Have a conversation with the breeder, pick out a puppy, pay the deposit, wait till puppies are 8 week, arrange pickup or delivery.
2). Where can genetic health information be found on our dogs? Our dogs have been tested with paw print genetics. To find information on a particular dog visit www.pawprintgenetics.com scroll to the bottom of the first page and click on the circular symbol that says breeder on the bottom. Then search our kennel by our name Big Baby Berners.
3). Do we deliver? Yes, we deliver free up to 100 miles beyond that we require compensation for the difference in miles. Cost per mile will depend on the price of gas at the time of delivery. For distances greater than 350 mile our driver will need a hotel room this will be included in the price of delivery. For any travel greater than 500 miles we require delivery be done via airliner.
We will deliver to most major airports. Air travel will require a pet nanny so one of our employees will fly with the puppy to the airport and remain with the puppy until they meet with you. Our nanny service is $300 per day plus the cost of the flight.
4). When can puppy go home? We allow puppies to go home at 8 weeks.
5). Can we hold a puppy past 8 weeks? This can be negotiated with the breeder depending on the breeders schedule. In the past we have worked with buyers who have prescheduled vacations or work scheduling conflicts. We will hold a puppy up until week 9 for free beyond that we charge $20 per day.
6). Can I request that my puppy not be vaccinated? Yes, we will not force vaccinate a puppy if a buyer asks us not to. We do want to inform our buyers that the parvo vaccine given by most veterinarians is a live virus. Please research effects of live viruses. We do require that all of our puppies be dewormed. Not deworming a puppy will cause flesh wasting and negatively impact the digestive system which could result in death or disability.
