Trainer should visit your home within 3 days of bringing your puppy home. “Animal Behaviorist “is the key terms you are looking for. DO NOT USE A TRAINER AT PETCO OR ALIKE. Find a professional trainer. We recommend that your trainer do an initial visit in your home to start off on the right track. Group classes can begin at 4 months of age, after all shots have been given. Buy and read The Puppy Primer and The Other End of the Leash by Patricia McConnell. Our families have also liked The Perfect Puppy in 7 Days by Sofia Yin.
We strongly recommend investing in pet insurance.
Trupanion offers no waiting period if enrolled online within 24 hours of the puppy going home.
*A breeder code will be provided to you at pickup.
This is the starter bed we recommend. They will outgrow it very quickly, so purchase a basic bed that can be thrown in the wash.
We buy ours at amazon.com or chewy.com. This will serve as a safe place for your puppy. We do NOT recommend a corral/x-pen/exercise pen. This breed climbs, the x-pens are worthless after 9 weeks of age. The crate will help with continuing training and keep your puppy safe.
You save about $50 buying the crate online.
Buy crate with 2 doors and a divider.
- Miniatures- 36″ L X 24″ W X 27″ H
- Mediums- 42″ L X 28″ W X 31″ H
- Standards- 48″ L X 30″ W X 33″ H
Note that the stated packaging weights may be larger than your puppy will be. This breed stretches out when they sleep and we don’t want paws poking through the crate and the dog being injured.
We will provide a go home sleeping crate for puppies 8-11 weeks of age

Just a few of our favorites:
We purchase our sleeping buddies (the toy the puppy goes home with) from Khol’s Cares. The toy designs change but they normally have good options. Also, the proceeds go to a children’s charity. Be sure to pick one that doesn’t have plastic eyes. We prefer these over “puppy” stuffed toys because they don’t have squeakers. We will send one home with your puppy, put here is the link if you would like to purchase a replacement https://www.kohls.com/product/prd-3491715/kohls-cares-jefferswhale-plush.jsp?prdPV=1
We do not give the puppies/dogs stuffed toys with squeakers. It encourages them to be destructive. They will eat the squeakers and then you must be sure the squeaker came out, one end or the other! We also do not use Kongs. Puppies can easily get their tongue jaw stuck in them.
We prefer metal bowls.
Spray on the items you do not want your puppy to chew on
