You may wonder how we do our puppy selection. After you have filled out the Questionnaire, we will review it and contact you with any additional questions either over the phone or through email. After all of our questions have been answered, we will tell you that you are able to place your deposit. Once we have received your deposit, we will send you a "Welcome to the A&W Golden Family" email containing information pertaining to your new family member.
The way we do our Puppy Selection is by having you telling us what your plans and goals for your puppy are as an adult and what characteristics you wanting in your dog. Such as, we are very active and like to have a dog that enjoys walks and time at the lake. Or, we enjoy daily walks with our dog and love to snuggle. Or, we like to hunt waterfowl and need a dog that can be quite in the blind and but ready to go retrieve. All of our dogs will have energy and are not "couch potatoes". They will need to fine an activity to release this energy. At 8 weeks of age, the puppies are ready to go home and we will offer you the puppy that we feel is the best option for you and your goal with your dog. Dogs going to working homes will be given priority and more input on which puppy they are to receive. These puppies are very young when they go home and will change in their looks and personalities as they grow and mature. More importantly, they are very impressionable sponges. They retain more training at a younger age than later in life. The amount and quality of training they receive will have a HUGE impact on them as adults. In short, what we see in a puppy at 8 weeks old is not an absolute on how they will be as adults. We are able to send pictures, videos, and/or video chat to assist you in the selection of your puppy. At this time of selection, the remaining balance is due for the puppy. (If you pay electronically, you will need to add $50 to cover fees).
Once the puppies are 8 weeks old, they are ready to go home. You are able to pick them up any day of the week, except Sunday. If you are unable to pick up your puppy in person, which we do prefer, we are able to assist in arranging shipping. All shipping costs will be your responsibility but we will assist in arranging. Please let us know if you will need to have your puppy shipped.
