PURCHASING AND VISITING POLICIES
We accept personal checks as a form of deposit ONLY. We no longer accept checks on the day of pick-up. ONLY CASH IS ACCEPTED ON THE DAY OF PICK UP. If you are using a personal check as a form of deposit, you must allow 10 days prior to pick-up of your pup/dog. We also accept: cash, money orders, or credit cards through email/paypal (must add 4% if using paypal and also must allow 3 business days prior to picking up your pup/dog).
HOW PUPS GET PICKED
Most of Dutch Acres litters are spoken for before they are 7 weeks old. Lab pups don't start showing personality till they are around 6 weeks old, so genrealy we schedule you, (in order of your "pick") to come pick out and up your new pup the 1st Saturday after they are 7 weeks old. We will not hold a puppy unless it has a $200 deposit placed on it.
After the pups receive their first vaccinations, the buyer(s) are contacted to set up a day and time to come and "pick out" their pup. If the buyer is unable to make a pick in person, we can certainly send photos and allow the buyer make their choice via email photos. If the buyer cannot make their choice within the specified amount of time the seller allows, the buyer will then forfeit that position of pick to the next buyer.
Dutch Acres reserves the right on EVERY litter to have 1st pick on ALL pups.
Pups must be at least 7 weeks old before leaving their nursery at Dutch Acres **no acceptions**. If you are having a puppy shipped, the FAA requires that all pups be at least 8 weeks old to fly.
The only way pups receive immunity to diseases and bacteria is through mother's milk. Pups can easily contract diseases and infections prior to vaccinations. Therefore, for the safety and health of our pups, we do not let anyone come to see pups until the pups have had their first vaccinations. NO ACCEPTIONS. Also, for the health and safety of our pets and yours, wo DO NOT ALLOW anyone to bring their pets to "visit" or meet a potential new "family member" . At 5 weeks old, pups get their first vaccinations. After pups reach 7 weeks old, they should be ready for their new homes for those that are picking up in person. All pups that are scheduled to fly somewhere are required to be at least 8 weeks old. We reserve the right to hold a puppy longer than the age of 7 weeks old if we feel the puppy needs more time with littermates. If an entire litter is spoken for before the pups have reached 6 weeks of age, we wait until they are 7 weeks of age and let new puppy owners come and make their selections and take their pups home at that time.
We DO NOT allow visitors to bring their pets to Dutch Acres to reduce the possibility of disease, infection, viruses and parasites.
