How long have you been breeding dogs?
We purchased Goldie, our first pure-bred female, in 2013, and we’ve been raising puppies ever since.
Where do you get your puppies?
We own 100% of our breeding parents. We also partner with several local breeding families who have gone through the rigorous process of becoming USDA-licensed. All of our puppies are raised in nurturing family environments.
How early am I able to get my puppy? How old will they be when I get them?
We have a strict policy of only making puppies available to the public when they have reached 8 weeks of age. This allows the puppies to be safely weaned before they come home with you.
What’s your process?
Our process is quick and simple, once you’ve done the hard work of narrowing down your favorite Creekside puppy. Check here for all the details.
How do you ensure your puppies are healthy?
First, we are committed to only breeding strong, healthy dogs. Both our parent dogs and their puppies receive all appropriate vaccinations. Every single puppy that comes through Creekside has a thorough veterinary examination during which their health is officially certified. Finally, we ask you to independently verify your puppy’s health by taking them to your own local veterinarian. We think this part is so important that we stipulate it in our purchase contract.
Are puppies up to date on vaccines and wormer?
Are Creekside puppies trained?
Creekside puppies are not trained. We believe training is important; it’s just that our rules and commands may be different from yours. We’d rather you spend your time and money training your dog to your own personal schedules, routines, and voice commands.
How do I reserve a puppy?
Select the puppy you want and place a $200 nonrefundable deposit to reserve your puppy.
Do we need to place a deposit in order to see a puppy?
You may visit any puppy or request additional photos and videos of any puppy who catches your eye. Just know: there are often other families interested in the same puppies. Making a deposit is the only way to ensure a certain puppy can become a part of your family.
What if you don’t have any puppies available for the breed I want?
If you are set on a certain breed for which we don’t currently have puppies, your patience can pay off. You can place a $200 deposit, and we will contact you the moment we know there is a new litter on its way.
How do I place a deposit?
Select the puppy you want and choose make a deposit.
How much is the deposit/reservation fee?
The reservation fee is $200, which goes toward the total price of your puppy.
Can you deliver my puppy?
Yes, we deliver! Find all the details here.
What is your delivery area?
With our trusted transport partner, Furry Freight, we are able to deliver your puppy to your door (or a city near you) all across North America.
How much does it cost to get my puppy delivered?
The cost of puppy delivery depends upon the location to which you need the puppy delivered. Typical delivery costs are $300 to $700 in addition to the price of the puppy. Feel free to contact us to get an exact quote.
How are puppies transported to their new homes?
Our partner in charge of transporting your puppy is Furry Freight, an organization that transports animals via motor vehicle. Furry Freight sends human chaperones in the vehicle with the dogs to keep an eye on them as they travel, ensure stops and play along the way, and always attend to your pup’s needs. We are deliberate about choosing ground transportation to deliver your puppy; we just don’t feel right about air transportation that requires dogs to ride in cargo space that is not climate controlled. We want your puppy to be safe and comfortable, and ground transport accomplishes that goal.
