We normally produce two to four litters per year. Litters are whelped inside our house and we spend all the time necessary to ensure they remain healthy. Pups are handled on a daily basis and beginning around four weeks they get lots of supervised play outside or in our house. As a result our puppies are well socialized and are ready to begin basic obedience training. Each puppy is given a thorough examination by a licensed veterinarian before being placed. Puppies are guaranteed healthy, to the best of our knowledge, when ready to go to their new home. Puppies are also guaranteed against hip dysplasia and other genetic or congenital health problems.
A deposit of $200 is required to reserve a puppy. We maintain a list of reservations, and selections are made by the purchasers in the order their deposits were received. An additional $1300 plus Idaho sales tax is due at time of pick up or delivery of the puppy. We require that all puppies purchased from us have their hips x-rayed at six months for OFA evaluation, and the $200 deposit is refunded to cover the cost at that time. Info on why we require this can be found here: October Setters Hip Program
We are planning to have three or four 2017 litters. Possible breedings in the works are Violet x Doc (repeat), Blaze x Heath, and Brook x River. Additional females that can be bred this coming year are Gen, Iris, and Candy. Pairings and dates will be announced as the breedings take place. We are considering an outside stud dog for Iris next time, the rest will be bred to River, Heath, or Doc.
