Puppy Starter Kit


Your POODLE Comes With The Following:

We customize each complimentary Puppy Starter Kit for each breed or mix that we raise so that their kits are geared to essential items that they will need. Each kit is a way of saying THANK YOU for giving one of our puppies a wonderful home! We want all of our puppies to have a smooth transition from our home to yours, and this is one way that we can help out! We also list what our puppies are exposed to for socialization and training at the bare minimum!

​- 1st booster vaccination & additional deworming (these are performed by a licensed veterinarian at 7-8 weeks and another deworming given at the same time as the vaccination -- these items are what will be shown on your puppy's health record)​

- vaccination schedule (info link will be given)​

- Purchase Agreement which includes up to a 5 year congenital health guarantee (against life-threatening defects)​ if fed a raw diet (please see our Puppy Purchase Agreement for details)

Instructional Guides:

- lifetime breeder support (you can contact us for advise any time throughout your puppy's life!)

Puppy Socialization & Training:

- handled daily from birth onward (our puppies feel our hands from the moment they take their first breath as we care for them, cuddle them, play with them, and love them!)


​- Puppy Culture Bi-Sensor Program (please see video and scroll through diagram for information)

- extensive socialization (our puppies are exposed to many sights and sounds that your puppy will hear in a typical household like vacuuming, pots and pans clanging, phones ringing, doors opening and closing. And we also go above and beyond to expose them to things out of the ordinary like thunderstorm sounds, fireworks, train horns, sirens.)
​- potty training (our puppies go home having been well started on pee-pad OR grass pad training and will be exposed to the outside world around 6-8 weeks of age)

​- crate training (our puppies are all exposed to the crate -- both wire and plastic -- for sleeping purposes at night time where they sleep together as a group for comfort to make the crate feel like a safe den area)

​- general command training (around the 6-7 week mark we start teaching the puppies to "sit" and sometimes "lay down" solely depending on each puppy's individual progression. We use positive reinforcement and reward the puppies with verbal praise and a treat to solidify the desired skill)

- vehicle ride (we have two vets and one is 1 hour away and the other is 40 minutes away and therefore the puppies will have a minimum of 1 hour and 20 minutes to a 2 hour vehicle ride at 7-8 weeks of age which allows us to expose the puppies to the motion of the vehicle over an extended period of time and it typically allows us to predict if any puppies will experience motion sickness on the vehicle ride home. This also serves as extra exposure to the crate in a completely new situation for the puppies)

Everyone will receive a link to our Exclusive Online "Taking Puppy Home Instructional" that covers a wide range of topics for care and training that you will encounter in the first week in your home (and beyond)!  The instructional will help set you up for success in training your puppy! By having the instructional online it not only allows us to "go green" and send puppy owners home with less paper in their Puppy Starter Kits, but it allows new puppy owners to access the instructional from the comfort of their own homes prior to taking their puppy home (which permits them to prepare) and they can refer back to it whenever necessary!  Puppy Pick Ups will be scheduled at 11:00 AM and/or 2:00 PM on the day the puppies turn 8 weeks of age, or the next closest weekend available for pick-up (to be determined by Pleasant Meadows).
