Best Phone to reach you
Male or female puppy desired (being flexible about the sex does not hurt your chances of getting your preferred sex)
Prefer a male but would be happy with a female if there aren't enough males
Prefer a female but would be happy with a male if there are not enough females
Which litter(s) are you interested in?
I am hoping for an early March puppy from either Molly or Tara if either should have extra puppies.
I am interested in your Eva/Micah litter which will hopefully be ready for new homes in late spring or early summer.
I am interested in your Penny/Micah litter. I understand that all puppies in this litter will only be available with the 8-10 week training program.
I am interested in your first available puppy from any of the above listed litters of my preferred sex.
I am interested in your first available 7 1/2 - 8 week old puppy.
First pick puppies are $4500. If there are 4 or more puppies of a sex, there will be a second pick puppy for that sex for $4400. If there should be 6 or more of a sex, there will be a third pick puppy for $4300. The rest of our 7 1/2 - 8 week old puppies are $4000. First pick puppies are the same price no matter how many puppies (if only one or if ten). What are you interested in?
I am interested in a pick puppy but I understand that these are usually already spoken for.
I am interested in a less expensive puppy.
Training fees are $700/week or $100/day for partial weeks starting the day after puppies turn 8 weeks. For example if you picked up a puppy at 10 weeks 3 days, the training fees would be for 2 weeks and 3 days or $1700. Add that to the $4000 cost of a non-pick puppy picked up at 10 weeks 3 days and the total would be would be $5700.
We are currently only offering to keep puppies until they are 11 weeks of age believing that the best time for puppies to change homes is between 10 and 11 weeks as long as a breeder can give individual attention and training to each puppy.
I am interested in a 7 1/2 to 8 week old puppy and am not interested in any training. Please note in question above that if you checked that you are interested in a Penny puppy only, an 8 week old puppy is not an option.
I am interested in a start in training for my puppy and would prefer to pick him/her up between 10 and 11 weeks. I understand that training is not always offered, but I would like to discuss this option with you.
We are conservative with the number of puppies that we reserve before puppies are born, but sometimes litters are small or don't have the hoped for mix of boys and girls. We refund deposits to those unable to get a puppy because of there not being enough but we cannot guarantee the number of puppies being born or the sexes. Have you read our page on how our list works that you can get to through our FAQ page and are you willing to accept this kind of uncertainty?
Have you read our payments and policies page which you can get to through the website and do you understand that if we don't receive your payment in full on time you will loose your deposit as well as your opportunity for a puppy? We need to focus on the puppies themselves the last few weeks that they are here and don't have the time to be pursuing late payments and more importantly we want our puppies to go to responsible homes.
Have your read our contract and do you agree to do everything that is under the buyer section? Click on our Contract page to open another tab and read now. Do you understand that you cannot breed this dog, that minimal vaccines are required, that late spay/neuter is required, and that high quality food is required.
Have your read all of the questions about Summer Brook on our FAQ page?
How did you hear about Summer Brook Acres?
How many people will be living with the puppy? If any of these people are there only part time such as kids in college, mention that here also. Do you have children? If so, how old are they?
Please give us detailed answers to the next several questions. The answers to these questions are all very important to us and in order to place a puppy in a particular home, we need detailed answers. Thank you for giving your time to this questionnaire!
I will answer all parts of each question honestly and accurately and completely.
Please tell us about your experience with dogs. Do you currently have any dogs? If so, please list each one’s breed, age, if they are spayed/neutered, and how you think he/she would adapt to a new puppy. Have you had any dogs in the past? If so, describe your experience with them and tell us what happened to them.
Describe your typical daily routine and what the typical daily routine for your puppy will be. Please be very detailed in answering this question telling us if everyone in your family works, how much the puppy will be left alone, how the puppy will be cared for while he is alone, where he will be left, etc. We won't place a puppy in a home unless we can feel assured that he/she will be well cared for and that he will get plenty of love, exercise, and training.
Where will the puppy/dog sleep?
What percentage of the day will this puppy/dog be kept outside and inside?
This is the most important question to us on the questionnaire. Do all adults in your family work full time? If so, what is your plan for the puppy while you are at work? If no one will be home during the day, what provisions will you make for your puppy at that time? Please tell me if your puppy will be left in a crate or loose in a room or e-pen or outside, if you'll have a dog walker or friend come and how often, if the puppy will have another canine friend, etc. If someone is home
Do you have a fenced yard? If so about about how big is the enclosed area. What kind of fence is it? ie. electric, wood, etc.
Do you have a pool? If so, is it fenced separately from where the puppy will be spending its time outdoors? If not, How do you plan on keeping the puppy safe until he/she learns to swim and learns to get out at the correct end?
About how many hours will the puppy/dog be without people each day? Please answer this question with an approximate average number of hours instead of a vague answer such as "not many".
If you currently have a dog, what do you feed?
If you got a puppy from us, are you willing to feed this puppy either a food that is listed on our preferred dog food page on our website or a food that is rated at 4 or 5 stars on the website www.dogfoodadvisor.com? Are you willing to change your current food if necessary to comply with our contract?
Do you own or rent your home? If you rent, does your landlord agree to your having a dog?
About how many stair steps are there to get inside your house from where your puppy will be pottying?
Are you willing to keep your puppy off of any inside flights of stairs until he/she is at least 16 weeks of age?
Our home only has one level so this is no problem at all.
We have 2 levels but keeping the puppy off the stairs is no problem. We have no plans for the puppy to ever go upstairs.
We have 2 levels and want our puppy to be able to go upstairs. We will, however, keep the puppy off the stairs until he/she is over 16 weeks of age.
It is important to us that our puppy do stairs as soon as he/she gets home with us but we understand that this will void any guarantees on hips/elbows.
What type exercise do you plan on providing for your puppy?
Is everyone in the family wanting this puppy? Who will be the puppy's primary caretaker?
What vet do you plan on using? Please give their name and number.
What will be your plan for your puppy when you travel? Will he/she always go with you? Will you have someone come to your house? Will you board your puppy?
Please put in this space information that would help us at puppy selection time. For instance,how will your puppy primarily spend his/her day? Will your puppy be going places often? Where? Do you have a lot of company? Will you take your puppy on vacations? What attributes are most important to you in a puppy? Examples would be calmness, confidence, playfulness, blocky head, light colored coat? List attributes that you are hoping for in a puppy in order of importance.
How would you describe your dog training abilities?
I have successfully raised more than one puppy and feel confident in my abilities.
I have raised a puppy but it has been awhile.
Some in my family are skilled at raising puppies, but there is at least one in my family (including young children) who need to learn from scratch how to treat and raise a puppy.
Though I may have grown up with dogs, this is our family's first puppy.
Are you willing to make the necessary sacrifices that raising an 8 week old puppy will require? A new puppy will require many hours per day to train. 8 week old puppies will require your being available to take them outside to potty sometimes every 30 minutes. 8 week old puppies like to chew and they must be trained as to what to chew and what not to chew. They need outside exercise several times a day. They usually don't sleep through the night (keeping you from sleeping through the night). They will potty in your home if you fail to take them out often. 8 week old puppies need basic obedience training in order to grow up to be well-trained, well-mannered adults. Starting by 10 weeks of age, they need to be taken out and exposed to many different people, places, and environments to develop self-confidence. Are you ready for this kind of responsibility?
I'm not sure and would like to discuss this further with you.
No but I plan on sending my puppy to a trainer.
No, I'm hoping my puppy will be an easy puppy. I don't remember my last dog being this much work.
How would you get your puppy? Will you drive to our home in Alabama? Will you fly and carry your puppy back with you in the plane? Puppies under 10 weeks can fly in the cabin with you. We do not ship our puppies.
Is there anything else that would be helpful for us to know?
