What you need to know about Pricing, Shipping, Deposits.....
Our puppy prices are based on colors & patterns, & unique characteristics of the puppies. To provide you with those, we had to purchase certain lines we have not had here before; those dogs had to be shipped from across Canada & imported from the States. Consequently, our price for our puppies has been adjusted to reflect the cost of producing those unique lines.
We breed only quality CKC registered purebred dachshunds, all of which come from championship lines. We raise quality puppies by investing a lot of time, effort, & money in their upbringing to prepare them for their new homes.
The puppies come with 1st set of vaccinations, a vet record showing they were vet checked & are healthy, & a substantial puppy pack. We also offer life-long support to the new owners. We have numerous puppy owners who will confirm this & are willing to be a reference for us if needed.
We have attempted to stay affordable while also pricing our puppies according to their value! And we are willing to discuss payment options if necessary.
If you are looking for a less expensive puppy, I am sure you can find one elsewhere..... consider a rescue from a shelter..... they need good homes too! We support shelter & rescue adoptions.
We no longer offer breeding rights!
We retain the right to refuse the sale of a puppy to anyone we feel would not provide an adequate home for our puppies.
We also retain the right to first pick of any litter for breeding potential for ourselves. If you have a deposit for pick of the litter, you will have 1st pick after us.
If, for any reason, you cannot keep your puppy, you must notify us & the puppy must be returned to us at your earliest convenience! If the dog is 1 year old or older, we will help you re-home him/her or take the dog back.
Money will not be refunded or paid back for the puppy being returned. You made a lifetime commitment when you purchased your puppy. As the breeders we are simply following through on our own commitment of lifetime support & help by being gracious taking the puppy back or helping you rehome the dog.
The deposit TO HOLD a puppy is $200.
(E-mail transfers are quick & secure the puppy you want immediately!)
A puppy will not be held without a deposit!
Please NOTE that your deposit is non-refundable, so make sure you are ready to make a commitment when you inquire about a puppy! Your deposit can be transferred to another puppy or the next litter (only upon discussion & approval) if the litter where you placed your deposit did not produce what you asked for (ie you want a dapple but the litter did not produce a dapple or your deposit applies to a specific gender & there was none of the specified gender in the litter). However, a timeframe will apply regarding the length of time the deposit will be held towards another puppy or litter.
If, after paying a deposit, you change your mind & decide not to buy a puppy due to unexpected circumstances, we may hold your deposit until your circumstances change & you are able to go ahead with plans to adopt a puppy at a later date (only upon discussion & approval). Please note that a timeframe will be applied to the length of time the deposit will be held towards another puppy.
Your puppy must be fully paid for by the time your puppy is 6 weeks old unless special arrangements have been made with us. This is to allow us the time to collect all monies owed before arranging shipping for puppies that have to be shipped. If a puppy has to be shipped, all shipping expenses are the buyers' responsibility & also must be paid by the time the puppy is 6 weeks old. We will not book a flight for your puppy until your puppy & the cost for shipping your puppy have been completely paid for.
If you have paid a deposit on a puppy & require additional time to pay for your puppy or an extension on the date your puppy is to be picked up, you MUST contact us before your puppy is 6 weeks old.
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not pay any balance due on the puppy by the required time or do not pick up your puppy when he/she is ready to go, you will have forfeited the adoption of the puppy & no money will be returned to you. A new home will be found for the puppy.
We will no longer accept deposits by mail (postal service), as email transfers are quick & immediately secure the puppy of your choice.
We will also not hold puppies without a deposit received.
Your deposit must be paid by email transfer or cash.
Only email-transfers, moneygrams or postal money transfers, & cash will be accepted. A certified cheque may be an option for the final payment with prior approval.
You can also send your deposit through Western Union however, they charge a fee so email transfers are more economical & practical & our preference!
To make a puppy affordable for you, we have set up payment plan options. Email us or call us to discuss those options if a payment plan is necessary.
Thank you for your understanding!
We can ship your puppy, however, we do prefer that you pick up your puppy if at all possible as we like to meet all of our puppies' new owners in person. It is also much easier on the puppies.
We ship year round but only in Canada at this time. We use Westjet & Air Canada when shipping anywhere from BC to the Maritime provinces. Which airline we use is dependent on cost, destination, & convenience.
The cost for us to ship your puppy anywhere in Canada is $350 with the exception of the Maritime provinces & the NWT.
Shipping to the Maritime provinces is $375 unless an overnight boarding kennel is required.
Shipping to the Northwest Territories is still new to us so we quote on an individual basis when shipping there. The price is dependent on destination, airlines used & if an overnight boarding kennel is required.
The cost for shipping your puppy is determined by the airline used, the size of the kennel used or the weight of the puppy & if an overnight kennel service is required; it includes the flight, an airline approved kennel with accessories, & our transport to the Saskatoon airport. If a kennel service is required during the flight, the cost will be added to the shipping costs & must be paid in full before the flight & kennel service are booked.
About the possibility of an overnight kennel service ...
A Kennel Service may be required if the flight is longer than 12 hrs; or is an overnight flight due to layovers, poor connections, or bad weather conditions. If a Kennel service has to be used during the flight, it is an additional cost of $200 or more, depending on the Airline & the Kennel service they use. The kennel service is the buyer's expense unless it is required by the airline as a result of an emergency situation such as weather conditions, or a breakdown, in which case the airline pays for it.
Shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer & must be paid in full before the flight is booked.
Please NOTE that prices may vary & shipment may be delayed due to extreme hot or cold weather. Airline prices can change at any time, therefore, our shipping prices are also subject to change at any time. Please contact us if you need to confirm details on shipping information if your puppy has to be shipped.
Please note that we do not ship to the United States at this time!
ABOUT CKC REGISTRATIONS:
Please note that we are not responsible for how long it takes the CKC to process the paperwork we send them to register your puppy or if mail gets lost. Please be patient in waiting for your puppy's registration certificate.
What we do....
We take the care & maintenance of our dogs & puppies very seriously. Making sure they have a good nutritional diet & yearly checkups & vaccinations is costly but well worth it.
Your puppy will be socialized with people & other dogs; potty trained on pee pads & started on training to go outside as well, if the season permits.
ALL puppies will come vet checked, with a vet record, UTD on vaccinations & wormings, with a 1 yr health guarantee, & a puppy pack.
Your puppy pack will include a small bag of good quality food that your puppy is on; toys; healthy treats; a blanket; a dog bed; a Puppy Care letter from us outlining your puppy's routine; a book on the Dachshund breed, & more.
The Puppy Pack may vary slightly as per availability of supplies....
