PUPPY INFO

All of our breedings are carefully planned well in advance.  It takes an incredible amount of time to research the lineage of potential studs, and to find that special one who not only offers the conformation qualities that we seek, but who also has the right temperament and health to offer.

All of our puppies are raised inside our home and we make sure they receive plenty of human interaction and socialization. Our puppies go to their new homes at the age of 8 weeks or later. Prior to leaving our home, each puppy is vet checked, vaccinated, microchipped (AVID), and routinely wormed. We respect Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) regulations and therefore we do not remove front dewclaws. We follow Dr. Jean Dodd’s vaccine protocol. We strongly believe in matching puppy’s personality and temperament with the perfect family, and we use Volhart Puppy Aptitude Test to help us achieve this goal. All puppies come with a health guarantee, AKC registration, and information packet which includes parent information, training advice, etc.  Our pet puppies are placed with spay/neuter requirement.

Puppy Questionnaire

* Required


Thank you for taking your time to fill out this puppy questionnaire. This questionnaire does not guarantee an approval for a Dykumos puppy. It was designed as a first step of our communication, and will be used to better match the right puppy to your needs and your lifestyle. While there are a lot of detailed questions, getting a puppy involves a lot of planning, and preparation since we expect the puppy to be a member of your family for the next 10-15 years. We are looking forward to further continuing this discussion with you!
