Take Home Day
Your puppy will receive its first C3 vaccination at 6-7 weeks of age. The next C5 vaccination is required at 12 weeks of age. It is very important that you do not take your puppy into public places until the 12-week shot has been administered. Your puppy is at risk of deadly diseases and not fully covered until the booster shot is administered. It is under strict advice that during this period, you keep your puppy in your backyard and away from other dogs whose vaccination history you don’t know.
We register your puppy’s microchip into the NSW Pet Registry database which then identifies your puppy on the national microchip database. You will then be required to complete the transfer of the microchip online.
Your puppy will come wormed with Drontal or Milbemax at 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks of age. Worming your puppy is essential to the wellbeing of your dog and can result in a longer life expectancy. A continued worming regime with Drontal or Milbemax once every two weeks until 3 months of age is recommended, and then once every month until 12 months of age. When your dog is 12 months of age worming is required once every three months. Types of wormer should be alternated to prevent resistance build up.
Your puppy comes fully vet checked. Our wonderful and very experienced vet examines your puppy’s structure, bones, eyes, heart, teeth, ears, and skin. We do not allow puppies that are not 100% healthy to leave us.
All our puppies leave us desexed. This is compulsory. We do this to promote responsible breeding. The procedure is done between 7-8 weeks and is minimally invasive for the puppy. The stitches are internal and will dissolve on their own. The incision area will need to be kept clean until it heals.
Pick Up & Transport
Pickups are welcomed and can be organised from Monday to Friday by appointment. Unfortunately, we are unavailable for pickups on Saturday or Sunday due to work and family commitments.
If you aren’t able to come to us to collect your puppy, we are happy to arrange transport. We can arrange private door to door delivery of your puppy in the Sydney and surrounding areas including Wollongong, Newcastle and the Central coast. For air travel we use Qantas Freight who are fantastic with scheduling and take great care of our puppies. They also offer very competitive prices. Our puppies are flown from Canberra Airport. We organise and book all flights for our customers, all you will need to do is collect your puppy from the receiving end. All transport associated costs are the responsibility of the owner.
Final payment is due on pickup. In instances where puppies require shipping, we require final payment for puppy plus the transport the week of delivery. Once flights are booked (usually 5 workings days before the date of the flight) we will forward you the booking confirmation and request for final payment. The funds will need to be cleared into our account before we will ship the puppy.
