All of our current puppies have families waiting for them, but we'd love to help you pick the right litter for your reservation!
Once a litter has arrived, we are often asked which puppies are left. Our answer is always that making sure that a family and puppy are well-suited to each other is our top priority. Puppy temperaments do not begin to emerge until they are 5 weeks old. We live with them, hold them, play with them, challenge them, and discuss them all the time. While we always listen to our families' hopes and preferences, picking purely on appearance does not guarantee a good match.
We temperament test our puppies at 8 weeks of age using Avidog's APET program. Combining test results with all that we know about each of the puppies from living with them, they are carefully matched to their families in the days following the testing. Even we don't know which puppies we will keep to join our breeding program until we've completed the temperament testing!
