Puppy FAQ

 How do I get on a litter waiting list?

 

We normally accept six spots and leave room for a few stand-by positions.  We do require a deposit to be placed on a litter wait list. This is to save our spots on the wait list for those that are seriously interested in our puppies. PayPal, Venmo, cash, or check are accepted ways to pay your deposit.

 

The deposit amount is $300 and is non-refundable, but is transferable. This amount will go toward the final price of the puppy. If you do not find the puppy you are looking for when the litter is born, we can transfer your deposit to a different list or you can stay on that specific Dam's next litter. 

 

Note: We do reserve the right to keep back first pick puppy from any litter or to refuse the sale of a puppy.

 

 

 

Why do your puppies cost so much?

 

Our prices vary depending on breed and the parents. All of our parents are genetic tested and will have their OFA prelims prior to breeding. The breakdown of what it takes to breed a high-quality puppy is as follows:

 

Genetic Testing: $400-$500 per dog.

High-Quality Food: $100 a month.

Vet Check-Ups: $200-$300 a year- without emergencies.

We spend countless hours training your puppy as well. We begin potty training as soon as they can walk, and crate training at six weeks. 

 

These are just a few examples of why it may cost a higher amount to get a puppy from a breeder that truly takes the time to provide high-quality puppies to their customers. We cannot guarantee that your puppy will live forever, but we can tell you that we do our very best here at Infinity Goldens to give you a puppy that will grow big and strong. Yes, you can find a puppy for much less, but you will most likely shell that money out at the Vet's office later on for expensive treatments and surgeries.  

 

 

 

How and when do I get to pick out my puppy?

 

You can watch on the facebook page for updates and announcements regarding each litter. When the litter is born, we will begin posting individual puppy pictures. We ask that each customer finds their top three puppies, and keep those in mind. At six weeks of age, we will hold a selection day for our prospective puppy owners. On this day, you can choose a visit or a video. You will be scheduled according to your spot on the list. Each appointment will last approximately an hour. At this point, you can choose your puppy! We will meet with you about puppy pick up day and you are welcome to meet the parents too. 

 

 

 

How and when do I pay for my puppy?

 

If you are coming to us to pick up your puppy, you are welcome to bring us cash or check. If you are paying by check, you will need to send us the check by 7 weeks as we will not send the puppy with you until the money has cleared the bank. If we are shipping your puppy to you, he/she will need to be paid for in full by 7 weeks of age. 

* Note: we do charge sales tax on any puppy picked up at our home *

 

 

 

Do you offer breeding rights on any puppies?

 

We do offer breeding rights to approved breeders. Breeding rights are given after proof of genetic testing. The cost will vary depending on the breed and the parents. 

 

 

 

Do you have a health guarantee?

 

We do offer a one-year health guarantee for our puppies. You can find this guarantee on our "Health Guarantee" tab under the "Puppies" tab.  

 

 

 

 

What kind of food do you feed the puppies?

 

We feed our dogs Purina Pro Plan. For our health guarantee to cover your puppy, we do require you to continue feeding them Purina Pro Plan or another dog food that is rated 4-star and above on dogfoodadvisor.com.

Are we allowed to visit?

 

We love visitors! Each visitor will have to make an appointment with us and we would love to show you around our home and have you meet the puppies and their parents. We do ask that the puppies are at least 5 weeks old so the mother is more comfortable with people handling her babies. 

 

 

Do you offer extended training?

 

Yes! We do offer extended training to help potty and crate train your puppy. There is an additional fee of $300 a week. We will accept one or two puppies per litter to keep back and start with training. These spots will fill quickly, so if this is something you are interested please ask us as soon as you decide to get on a waiting list. 

 

 

When can I pick up my puppy?

 

Your puppy will be ready to go home at 8 weeks of age. It is absolutely crucial for him/her to remain with his/her mother and littermates until then for proper socialization and development. We will begin scheduling pick up appointments during selection day.

 

 

What if I can't pick up my puppy?

 

We would love it if you could pick up your puppy, but we absolutely understand that this isn't always feasible. If you are unable to come to us to grab your puppy, we are happy to ship via ground transportation or meet at a local airport. These options will be paid for at the new puppy owner's expense.
