Puppies come with AKC Registration Limited/full (on contract), 2.5 year health guarantee, Life time breeder support. We talk to our families about nutrition and how to properly raise a Giant breed and offer the option to wean to raw or a quality grain free kibble. The puppy pack will have food for a few days according to the diet they have been weaned. All puppies raw or kibble are started on Honest kitchen, a human grade raw. We add goats milk. We have found this makes the perfect mush and is easily digested. We can then add ground raw or soaked kibble. This can be continued in their diets either as a kibble topper or a mix for organ meat. Samples of this will be in the puppy pack. We put home made dehydrated treats made by a local supplier "Helgas Munchies" as well as info. for reordering. They go home with a collar, binder with breed/family info, pedigrees, ofa health certificates, Championships, Vaccine/worming invoices from the vet as well as a schedule for future vaccines.
Puppies are started on potty, crate and leash training as well as basic manners.
We are big believers in not only producing quality Danes but understand the importance of raising them correctly. We do "ENS" Early Neurological Stimulation, socialize in the rules of 7's and are proud to be Puppy Culture breeders. Puppy culture is something that can be utilized by the puppies new family as well. We highly recommend checking out their website and purchasing their DVDs.

Puppies will be up to date on all age appropriate shots and wormings, performed at the vet. I will have vet records and invoices along with a future schedule in the puppy pack. We minimally vaccinate our dogs. Please ask me about this. Puppies are raised indoors and are socialized with children, cats, other dogs, parrots, everyday household noises and country life. After feeding and naps we take them out when older to start potty training. We also daily take them on supervised walks and have play time in the yard. Puppies are ready for their new families at 8 weeks. Once an approved family chooses their new puppy a non refundable deposit will hold their puppy, remainder is due at pickup at 8 weeks. While puppies are with me I will post pictures and videos at least once a week on facebook or send through email or text.
Ive posted some photos of our puppiesabove and below, to not only show the quality but the care we put into raising them.
