What food will my puppy be used to eating?
  • We feed all of our puppies (and adults) with Taste of The Wild’s Ancient Stream food. It’s available in 5lb, 14 lb, and 28 lb bags at some pet stores as well as online. Your new puppy will come with a sample pack of this food that can be used to transition your puppy if you choose to switch foods.

Will my puppy receive any vaccinations?
  • By or around 7 weeks of age, each puppy will receive a 5-way vaccination. This vaccinates your new puppy against: distemper, adenovirus type 1 (hepatitis), adenovirus type 2 (respiratory disease), parainfluenza virus, and parvovirus. If you would prefer your new puppy to NOT be vaccinated, please let us know and we would be more than happy to accommodate you!

Do you recommend using puppy pads while my new puppy is still being potty trained?
  • We use both paper pads and cloth pads with our puppies. The paper pads are simple to throw away when used, but are also easy for puppies to tear. Cloth puppy pads are our favorites because they are machine washable, eco-friendly, and very durable. When puppies are young, we like to use painter’s to tape the pad to the floor so that it doesn’t slip around while they’re trying to use it. As puppies get older, we take them out in our fenced yard to transition them to going outside. We do still keep a puppy pad or two inside at this point for times when puppies don’t make it outside in time. Here are some links to the cloth puppy pads we use off of Amazon:

What will my new puppy come with?
  • We will send weekly updates with pictures letting you know how your puppy is growing & developing and when they receive dewormings and vaccinations.
  • Taste of The Wild Ancient Stream food sample packs
  • Small blanket that we let Momma, Daddy, and siblings lay on/play with to get good familiar smells on it so that your puppy has a “scent of home” to make transitioning into your home a little easier for your new puppy.
