Our puppies leave for their new families between 10 to 12 weeks of age. They will have had all of the vaccines, wormings, veterinary checkups and health certifications appropriate for their age. All our pups hail from proud parentage and we register each of them with both the rare-breed branch of the AKC (Foundation Stock Service, or FSS) and also with the UKC--we feel this is important for our breed's and our kennel's record-keeping purposes. We provide a 6-generation pedigree, a contract and a health guarantee. In addition, we provide an extensive 'puppy packet' for smooth transitions and a healthy, happy start in their new homes, and we lend a ready ear for any questions/issues/discussions that come up along the way.
We have years of experience in all aspects of Bergamascos, and this includes grooming and occasional home boarding services, and we happily provide initial grooming assistance to our first-time Bergamasco owners. Finally, we take great care to properly socialize puppies at the appropriate ages for them: they will have experienced short car rides in order to be good traveling companions, introductions to crate-training, for the well-being and safety of your puppy and to help ease the transition period for everyone involved, introductions to a soft leash and puppy collars, to many different kindly people big and small, old and young, and as many new and challenging sounds and environments as possible, as we feel strongly that this lays the foundation for an even better, more well-balanced puppy and the eventual adult dog of your dreams.
