Masterkarn Puppy info
Breeder socialised and raised: Puppies raised Masterkarn's way have increased learning ability, with better retention, and appear more stable, less fearful, and better able to cope with and recover from frightening or stressful situations/things.
Scientific Studies have shown that Enrichment Effects (like Masterkarn socialisation) actually cause animals to grow up with a more loyal relationship with humans and socially accept other dogs better. We ask you to continue that socialisation once home with you.
ANKC Registered: Individually ANKC registered name beginning with the Masterkarn prefix and pet name that is chosen by the buyer. We do have Litter Themes (such as Stars, Bands, Hearts, etc) in our pedigree names.
The registration will be sent in as soon as your puppies DNA (for show dogs) has been returned to Dogs QLD to have the puppies registered.
Vaccinations: Puppies are given Parvo, Hepatitis and Distemper vaccinations (C3) before they leave our home. If a puppy stays longer than the age of twelve weeks, we will give them a follow up vaccination before leaving also.
If your puppy is being shipped, shipping is the buyer’s responsibility and we do not pay for any expenses pertaining to such costs, but we are happy to arrange the shipping for you. We do need all puppies to leave the same day so this is often easier for us to arrange.
Health Warranty. We offer a 12 month Guarantee against any life threatening genetic defects that will be fatal to the puppy. You will receive an original of our contract, pre-signed, for your records. You need to keep a copy as well, and require that you sign this in person and return it to us snail mail or via email if you have an electronic signature (or send via snail mail ahead of time).
Microchip Implantation and Pedigree registration: All puppies are micro chipped and registered with the ANKC before they leave our home. We are put on as an alternative contact in case, for some reason, you cannot be contacted. We will be an alternative to ensure your puppy is safe and happy until she or he can be returned safely to you if we are able to collect the dog. PLEASE remember to change ownership to your name! Otherwise they will be looking for us to claim the puppy/dog is lost and often we are in another state.
Health Tested Parents: All of the dogs residing at Masterkarn kennels will be health tested as per breed needs before breeding. Our puppies are given the best chance at being healthy as their parents are fully health tested for Hips/Elbows, and a DNA breed health profile.
Puppy Care Package: When practicable, to help you get started with your new puppy, we prepare care packages for you and your new puppy to leave with. Contents vary upon availability. We normally try to include a blanket that smells like mum, a baggie of current puppy food and a new collar, etc. (If you like choosing these on your own, please let us know so that we can save them and ensure availability to those who will use them.)
Puppy Blanket: We offer a baby receiving blanket [roughly a foot squared] for all puppies. This blanket will be placed in with mom and siblings (around 8 weeks) until they leave us. The smell of the blanket will be scented with mom and siblings. This helps because your new home is new and different and the smell of the blanket is familiar, making the transition from our home to yours much easier!
100% Support: You will receive lifetime support when you purchase a puppy from us. Whether its Email, Phone, Facebook, etc, we are here for you and your dog! If you are close enough, we also offer support in person. We want everyone to know that the relationship does not end once you take your puppy home. We enjoy updates in any form, but especially photos once a year at birthdays.
We have a Private Facebook Group for all of our "Masterkarn" Puppy Buyers to join to upload great pictures and antics of your dogs. The group also has many other owners there with older dogs that can offer advice on how they sorted out issues with pups. This group is there to show my dedication to you for education, help, support, and guidance. The group is Private so that ONLY members can see/comment in the group so people don’t have to worry about sharing pictures, experiences, etc! Our FB group is called https://www.facebook.com/groups/masterkarngermanpinschersdobermann
Crate Training: All Puppies have started crate training to a small degree. Majority will be eager and willing to enter the crate and enjoy the time they have in there as they have been in the crate for about 2 weeks prior to leaving us. Most will not cry when placed in the crate. We do recommend placing a Raw Meaty Bone (RMB) in with the puppy to keep them busy and ensure they do not dislike their crate. I have a crate training article in your puppy folder.
House Training: Your puppy will be started on his/her way to house training. We start young by introducing a bathroom area (puppy litter box) in the puppy pen after 3 weeks of age, to help with the process of house training. Once the puppies are old enough, we take them outside to toilet and to learn the proper place to toilet. We work hard so that the transition for your puppy is easier and the least stressful for both you and your puppy. remember puppies cannot hold their bladder until around 16 weeks so you will need to be alert to their signs they need to go outside.
Educational Help: We also like to offer loads of educational reading materials (most will be in your booklet we provide) and information to help you with the raising of your puppy in your puppy folder. We offer a special information folder created by Masterkarn kennels with help for training and basic health care information. The same folder is given for those purchasing show puppies with additional information specific to showing dogs, so that you are better able to learn how to show and present their dog appropriately.
Friendship: And of course you get to have a new friendship for life with other owners and us. We are there for you when you need us and are always here to offer a helping hand. By buying a puppy from us, you get to become a part of our extended family and are able to stay within the Masterkarn Family for as long or as little as you choose. ;)
We look forward to adding you to our "family" and hope you enjoy our puppies as much as we do!
