Signed in as:
We try to accommodate preferences of gender, markings, and size when placing a puppy (as much as possible); but the personality of both the new home environment and the puppy are most important in ensuring a good 'fit' and a happily ever after.
We use the Puppy Headstart Program as well as Puppy Culture to ensure our puppies get a well-rounded upbringing.
We have an experienced dog trainer come and perform the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Test at 7 weeks in order to help us ensure proper placement and let the new owners know the strengths and challenges of each pup they bring home.
As a breeder, we try do everything by-the-book for the first 8 weeks of a puppy's life, but the promise of a well-behaved and acclimated dog cannot be made unless the new family is committed to doing what they need to do to ensure a smooth transition.
We have also partnered with BAXTER & Bella, the online training school, and are very excited to be able to offer a unique 25% off coupon code (OLDDOMINION) for our puppy families to use toward a one-time fee for a LIFETIME of UNLIMITED training.
And with BAXTER & Bella, their puppy program begins before the new puppy even steps foot into their new forever home.
