Reserve Your Puppy
The $250 reserve ensures your name will be placed on a waiting list for the Bernedoodle, Goldendoodle, Bernese Mountain Dog or Poodle Puppy of your choice. The $250 fee will be subtracted from the final price of your puppy, shipping not included. Please specify the breed, litter, puppy (if already born), and size of puppy you are most interested in adopting. Also, be sure to send us a copy of the last page of our “Purchase Agreement” when you place your reserve. Keep in mind we offer a 10% discount on your second puppy. Reminder: do not place your reserve if you have not spoken with us directly. Thank you!
When it comes time to pick up your puppy, you will be responsible for the remaining balance of your puppy depending on the price we have agreed upon – at that time checks are not accepted. You may only use cash, money order, or cashiers checks. Your receipt will also reflect a $40 health certificate if you live outside the state of Minnesota, you are also subject to Minnesota State Sales Tax fee of 6.875%. Shipping is the responsibility of the new pet owner, although, we do make one delivery trip for each litter to Minneapolis metro area for a fuel/delivery fee of $50.
Your puppy’s nutrition is very important to us, which is why we encourage our mother’s to nurse their puppies as long as possible. As soon as puppies can start eating soft food, around three weeks of age, we start them on a tiny kibble called Nutri Source “Puppy Starter”. Sometimes we turn this into a gruel by adding Natural Whole Goats Milk. This is a very healthy way to supplement if there are a large number of puppies in the litter. Supplementing with goats milk does not mean puppies do not get to nurse from their mother. Rather supplementing puppies actually enables their mother to have a break, which promotes bonding and decreases the probability of the dam abandoning puppies too early. Abandonment is very common with Bernese Mountain Dog Mother’s. So, we try to be proactive using preventive methods to ensure optimal health of our precious canines.
When your puppy goes home, at 8-12 weeks of age, he will have new teeth and be eating a completely dry, premium pebble formulated for his size; NutriSource formulated for Large Breed Puppies or NutriSource formulated for Small Breed Puppies. We highly encourage you to continue this diet, but if you would like to switch after your puppy has been with your family for a few months. Do your research and please ask your veterinarian for advice, as well. We also feed our puppies and adult dogs a daily vitamin called “NuVet Labs”. Your puppy has already been started on this yummy wafer, so please remember to order before your puppy comes home to keep things “familiar” as much as possible.
