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 develope 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, Chihuahuas, adults and 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 3 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)

DEPOSITS
We only accept deposits from approved homes.
All deposits are non refundable but can be transfered to another litter.
If Buyer backs out of the puppy then no refund will be granted

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 do home checks and 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 for the registration fees.

AKC REGISTERED NAMES
ALL puppies will carry the Colra Kennel name first 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 reguirement and puppy buyers are free to pick any call name for their puppy.

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 the 8 week evaluation there are either Judges, Professional Handlers or Champion Breeders there 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.

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 littermates or other family members.
If this is not an option due to location we can ship puppies, weather permitting.
Buyer is responsible for ALL shipping costs, the crate, the health certificate from the Vet and
$100 to deliver the puppy to the airport to cover the cost of gas and my time (3 1/2 hours).
We ship from McCarren International Airport, in Las Vegas, NV.

There is the possiblity of delivering the puppy to the buyer (not being shipped by air). Contact us for pricing.

CROPPED OR NATURAL EARS
ALL show prospects are cropped

All Companion puppies remain natural eared.
If new owner would like their puppy cropped they must show proof of having taped ears before that have stood.
NO EXCEPTIONS
Breeder will have the puppy (companion)cropped and this will be an additional cost above the puppy price.
The Puppy and cropping cost is to be PAID IN FULL prior to cropping.
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 on a weekly basis.
Please note that this could take anywhere from 4 months to 18 months.

*NO refunds or replacement puppies will be given if the puppy is cropped after leaving Colra Danes.
