Show prospects - we currently do not sell show prospects unless referred to by an established breeder.
Companion/Performance - are offered only on a spay/neuter contract. AKC registration papers are not turned over to the new owners until the proper paperwork is presented to fulfill the spay/neuter clause of the contract. These puppies are no less a representative of the breed, but may have a conformational flaw that would not allow it to be as competitive in the ring.
Our cardigans are all PRA clear either through testing or parentage. We do other health testing such as OFA and CERF. All testing information is available upon request, as well as copies of both parents results are sent home along with the puppy at time of sale. We strive to breed dogs that are free of genetic defects but due to the nature of some disorders, can not guarantee that every puppy produced will not carry a defect or be affected by something later in it's life. That's just the nature of breeding, regardless of how hard you plan your breedings and test your dogs.
All puppies are placed with up-to-date shots and wormings. We also socialize the puppies with other dogs, animals and people. Living on a farm has its advantages for different scenarios and species of animals. Puppies are also started on crate training, house training and leash walking, although none will be pros at it at such a young age. It is our responsibility and goal that we have puppies that are happy, eager to please, inquisitive and outgoing when they leave for their new homes!
All dogs must be in the house with the family most of the time. Cardigans are a social breed and do not do well in a kennel situation. Also never would I sell a dog to someone who ties/chains their dogs up. This is not acceptable. We do not place puppies or dogs in homes with underground fencing. You must be able to provide a fenced area to allow your dog to play off leash and not be afraid that it may run off or be attacked by another animal. We will consider placing dogs in families without fences but special conditions must be met in those situations.
If you happen to inquire about a certain sex, color, or personality, we may not have a puppy in any given litter that fits your wishes. Every litter doesn't come with all the variety. If you are too specific, we may not be able to help you right away, but perhaps down the road. We feel that we are able to better pick a puppy for your needs than you are. We are with them constantly, feeding, playing, cleaning, watching them, so know their needs better.
We do require a NON REFUNDABLE deposit once the screening process is complete.
Once the questionnaire is submitted, please allow at least a week for us to confirm we received the questionnaire. If you have not heard from us please reach out to remind us! We lead hectic lives, as i know we all do.
Once this step is complete, we will review the questionnaire. If we feel it is a good fit for our puppies, we will notify you and send along our generic contract.
Once the potential home has reviewed the contract, we then set up a time to discuss our concerns or expectations regarding the questionnaire and/or contract.
A follow up will then be done with the references provided, and potential home visit by myself or another Ebonwald dog owner who lives in the vicinity.
Once the phone calls and references are checked, then it is decided mutually if the buyers are right for the puppies and then a non refundable deposit would be required to hold your spot on the wait list. if a puppy is not available to you, you could move your spot to the next litter or ask for a refund. if there is a puppy available and you choose not to take the puppy offered, there is no refund of deposit.
Puppies are ready for pick up between 8 and 12 weeks of age, with most of the pet homes closer to 8/9 weeks. Show homes will go home between 10 and 12 weeks of age.
Buyers need to pick up puppy in person or at an agreed upon location.
