How much for the puppy? We determine price based on size and color of eyes. The smaller the puppy full grown the more the cost and if blue eyes the more the cost. For more information on pricing, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Can we come see the puppies? Not before they are 8 weeks old, sorry, just too easy for them to be exposed to things that they aren’t used to and get sick. Just not worth it for me. I do post lots of pictures and video of them – so you can see their personalities shine – be sure to follow us on social media so you don’t miss out on any of those!
We would like to come meet the parent dogs, when can we do that? It’s our policy here at Tara’s Schnauzers that since we aren’t a kennel or a farm, but it is our humble home – for the safety of our dogs and humans on several levels we can’t allow people to just come look at our dogs. Not to mention we are very busy with our lives. As stated above, be sure to follow us on social media so you can see videos of our dogs running and playing and having a good time, inside our house and out!
What are they registered? Most are AKC. If a certain registry is important to you, please be sure to ask – but I do try to post on puppies page too! When in doubt about anything, please ask!
Are they vet checked? Yes! All puppies are completely checked out by my vet along with a fecal and any other things I feel need to be checked out before going to their forever home.
Are their tails docked and dewclaws removed? Yes, their tails are docked and dewclaws removed.
Do you crop their ears? No, we specifically breed for the floppy ear, we don’t do ear-cropping, that is an elective surgery on the owners part.
Do they come vaccinated?I vaccinate one vaccine at a time and for what can kill them: parvo and distemper. I use a MLV (modified live) vaccine that has been very good for our breeding program. Since using these vaccines I haven’t had to worry about parvo at all, which is a beautiful thing! I have seen first hand what vaccine damage can do, and so my protocol is very minimal, while still being very effective.
Are they wormed? I use all natural wormers, I don’t like the harsh chemical wormers which have been proven to be ineffective after a while and need to be alternated, and usually make a big mess out of the puppies poops for awhile. Instead I use food grade Diatamaceous Earth, pumpkin seeds and MSM in their food as soon as I start weaning them. It is used every day until they leave. (more on this in my FREE rawfeeding e-booklet)
If we don’t live close enough to come get our puppy, how can we get our new puppy? We ship with a pet nanny ONLY! More on thishere
Do you give repeat buyers a discount? YES! We give repeat puppy buyers a nice discount – if you are a second (or more) time puppy buyer, please ask about our repeat puppy buyer discount!
What do your puppies come with? After you place your deposit I email you a packet of over 40 pages of information about your puppy, from what it is eating to it’s schedule, about vax, it’s microchip info – etc. You will also receive each of my books for free. In your puppy go home bag will be a folder with your puppies vaccine record, signed health guarantee, certified copy of its pedigree, and toys with smells from home. I don’t put collars or food dishes or anything like that. I figure that’s the fun of getting a new puppy, I leave that to the new owner to get and pick out in your own favorite colors etc. I want you to have all the info. you need to pick up where I left off on taking care of your new furbaby! No gimmicks – just a gorgeous, happy, healthy puppy.
Do you offer stud service? Can I use one of your studs for my female? Yes – I offer stud service, more on that here
