PUPPY INFORMATION

Our puppies are raised with tender love and care. They are raised inside of our home
with our human, Dane and Chihuahua family.
We do our best to breed healthy and happy puppies that make wonderful Champions,
Therapy dogs, Service Dogs, Performance dogs as well as wonderful quality companions.
All of the below goes into making a Colra Dane.

HEALTH
We do our very best to make sure all dogs/bitches that we breed or breed to are healthy and have EXCELLENT temperaments.
We health test our dogs that we breed and the dogs that we breed to are also health tested.
We understand that health testing isn't a guarantee that a dog will be 100% healthy and never develop a health problem/issue.
Health testing a tool not a guarantee. Many things factor into good health other than genetics.
Please remember these are living, breathing animals so nothing is 100% and we are NOT God

SOCIALIZATION
We make sure that we spend one on one time with each one of the puppies.
Puppies are socialized with our other Danes, my Chihuahuas, adults and if possible children.
The puppies go for car rides so we know who likes to ride and who may not.
All puppies are stacked and gone over at least 2 times daily.
Puppies are exposed to a variety of noises, textures, toys and smells.
We have NEVER had any complaints about ANY of our puppies temperaments.
(Please see our Temperament page)

PLACEMENT AGE
NO puppies leave before 8 weeks of age.
We do 2 evaluations of the puppies. One at 5 weeks and then another at 8 weeks.
At one of the evaluation there are either Judges, Professional Handlers or Champion Breeders involved to give their opinions as well.
We may hold on to a couple of the top show prospects until 12 weeks if we feel it's necessary before making our choice/s.

APPLICATION/SALES CONTRACT
All interested parties must fill out our application.There are "2" parts so fill them both out or you will not be considered
All approved homes must sign our contract that is legal and binding.
The contract includes our health guarantee, requirements on caring for your Dane, info on feeding, breeding
and showing, spay/neuter contract and general care.

AKC PAPERWORK
All pet quality pups will be placed on AKC limited registration with a Spay/Neuter contract
We do NOT sell puppies for breeding purposes
We do NOT sell to BYB's, Puppy Mills or Pet Stores
So if you are one of the above it don't even bother because we will not sell you a puppy.
We personally do home checks if possible, if not we can have a fellow Breeder in your area do one for us.
You must have references and have filled out our application.
**We will send in all AKC registration papers unless puppy is being shipped out of the country**
Please be prepared to bring a check or credit card for the registration fees.

DEPOSITS
We require a $500.00 NON REFUNDABLE deposit. A deposit can be transferred to another litter.
If Buyer backs out of the puppy then NO refund will be granted

We only accept deposits from approved homes once the puppies are born

AKC REGISTERED NAMES
ALL puppies will carry the Colra Kennel name (Colra DRR) and you must have approval to add your kennel name on to the puppy.
Normally we have themes picked for our litter so sometimes the puppies have already been given their AKC registered names.
Sometimes we will have a list for you to choose from that goes with our theme for that litter
We try to encourage people to name their puppy something that goes with their registered names
However it isn't a requirement and puppy buyers are free to pick any "call name" for their puppy.

SHIPPING
We prefer NOT ship puppies.
We like to meet all of our perspective puppy owners and would assume that you would want to meet us your Breeders,
see the Dam and possibly the sire along with any litter mates or other family members.
If this is not an option due to location we can ship puppies weather permitting of course.
Buyer is responsible for ALL shipping costs, the crate, the health certificate from the Vet and
We ship from McCarren International Airport, in Las Vegas, NV when heat allows.
**We can ship out of Ontario California if there is an issue with heat in Las Vegas, NV.
**This service is offered for an additional fee.
Below is an idea of what the costs are to ship a puppy:
Flight $300 to $450
Health certificate $125 to $150
Crate (If available I can offer used crates at $40 to $60) New crates $75 to $125
*Additional $250* if Flying out of Ontario, CA due to heat restrictions in Las Vegas(This covers my lodging, gas and time)
If I am taking multiple puppies the $250 fee will be split between puppy buyers.

CROPPED OR NATURAL EARS
Show prospects are cropped
All Companion puppies remain natural eared.
If you choose to crop your puppy we can recommend Vets who crop in new owners area.
New owners must understand the HUGE responsibly of taking care of cropped ears
to ensure they will stand. You or a Vet must remove and re-tape you puppy's ears at least once per week.
Please note that it could take anywhere from 4 months to 2 years
for the puppy's ears to stand

VACCINES
We belive in minimal vaccines.
We will be happy to discuss our vaccine protocol.
Puppies will have at least 1 vaccine before leaving to their new homes
