The final step: Taking your puppies home!!
At eight weeks, you will be invited to take your puppy home. We will assign a time for your pickup so that we can spend some uninterrupted time with you going over things we think you should know and answering any questions you may have.
THE DRIVE HOME
When you pick up your puppy, we recommend bringing someone with you who can hold the puppy on their lap for the drive home. Your puppy will be unfamiliar in his new surroundings, and without his siblings. Holding the puppy on your lap on an old bath towel will keep your puppy feeling safe and happy. Starting him off in the best possible way to his new life is very important to us.
AVOID HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS
On the way home, please remember that your puppy is vulnerable because he has not yet completed his vaccines. We ask you take your puppy right home, and to avoid any high traffic areas such as gas stations or dog parks where diseases are abundant. Fun fact: dogs can’t get the same viruses humans get. So if you have a sick human family member in the house your puppy will be fine.
If traveling more than 3 hours with your pet, we suggest stopping at areas where other animals wouldn’t visit frequently.
