Puppy Pick-up Days
and
Traveling Tips

UPDATE DUE TO COVID CONCERNS:
We will attempt to have pick-ups occur outside on my back porch, weather permitting. If necessary, we will meet in the puppy nursery.

My home address and cell number are on the Sales Contract/Health Guarantee that you received via email.

To minimize potential health risks, we are restricting access to other rooms of our home. There are several public restrooms available at EXIT 21, near our home. 

Ingles Market/gas station, CVS, Pizza Hut, and Dollar General are located off of Exit 21 (Weaverville Rd).
Thank you for understanding!

Puppy pick-up days are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday afternoons.  I do my very best to reserve the first appointments for those that will have the greatest distance to travel. If someone is traveling a great distance or there are other extenuating circumstances that need to be considered, I will do what I can to be flexible. I like for the puppies to be at ease when they leave here.
 
Being separated is stressful for them, even if they can see and smell each other. It is in the best interest of the puppies to maintain as much of their routine as possible and it is best if I am not having to rush to get all of them ready for early pick-ups so that they are not anxious when they leave. I firmly believe that puppies/dogs can sense the energy of the people and most often will mirror that energy. Based on my experience, the puppies are much happier and more at ease about the transition if we allow them to carry out their morning routine and then I can bathe them one at a time in between pick-ups. I want to set them up for success and I feel it is easier to achieve that if the transition is a smooth one.
