Purchasing A Puppy

THE PROCESS…….starts with completing a questionnaire that helps to gather information and about your family to help us decide what type of puppy is best suited to your family.  As the breeders we will select the puppy that we feel is best suited to your family.  We attempt to match each of our puppy’s temperament and needs as closely as possible to the home they will eventually go to.  We spend every day  watching each puppy develop in stages and monitor their play behaviors, energy levels, and interaction with littermates and humans.  This observation gives us the information to plan for each puppy placement in their forever homes.  Answers to the questions gives us the information about what you are looking for in a puppy and what your family style/energy levels are.  No two puppies are the same,  each has their own personality, energy and needs, so determining which puppy matches your family is done with a great deal of care and insight, we have known this breed more than 40 years.  After the questionnaire is completed we will contact you to let you know that your are approved and on The Puppy Waiting List.

The Puppy Waiting List:  is made from approved applicants.  The breeding of a litter is posted on the web site as to who is the sire and the dam and the date the litter is due.  We wait for the litter to be born (whelped) and as soon as it is we notify those families, that we have a puppy available for them. Deposits are now required, to reserve the puppy.  ( DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE)  All deposits and payments are in US dollars.  The remaining balance of the agreed purchase price is due in cash or certified check on the day of delivery of the puppy.

The Puppy Package

We include a very extensive “Puppy Package”  with information on  training, for leash, crate and potty that has already began, grooming requirements, health concerns in the breed, along with our must follow “Feeding Protocols”.  All medical and vaccine records to date along with  a  Certified Health Certificate from our Vet.  Our puppies are micro-chipped for the Home Alone Program, before leaving our kennel, and the AKC Registration will be completed and paid by Erinshire Irish Setters.  Continue reading below to for more information …….this picture is the 12 puppies, 6 males & 6 females born on April 04th, 2010.
