Puppies can leave here at eight weeks of age and no sooner. We are USDA & Iowa licensed and inspected and that is the rules and to the benefit of the puppy. Posted on each puppies description is their birthdate and their leave date. Pickup is the day of eight weeks of age (Leave Date) or five days past that date excluding weekends as we are not typically open on weekends. We do not board puppies past this point as it is not to the benefit of the puppy and we always think of the puppies best interest first and foremost. If the five day time frame doesn't fit into your schedule due to vacations, functions, babies, or otherwise then we highly suggest waiting for the next litter.
Reasons we do not board puppies:
1. Littermates have all left leaving one alone. A single puppy gets depressed and potentially goes off food and water causing it to crash.
2. We are not set up to board multiple puppies and simply do not have the room to do so.
3. It is prime socialization time for the puppy and having them bound tighter to us and then switching their home suddenly can cause issues and confusion for the puppy.
