At Maplecove, we typically only have one to two litters a year. That way we can thoroughly research the breeding, and devote as much time as possible to each individual puppy. They are home-raised, vet checked, wormed, and up-to-date on all shots prior to leaving. We perform all of the necessary health testing on the parents, including: OFA, CERF, Vwd, Thyroid and MDR1.
Starting at an early age, we expose each puppy to different surfaces, play equipment, noises, cats and people. This is very important in order for them to gain confidence and helps create a wonderful well rounded personality. Temperaments are very important to us, and we will not keep or breed dogs that are unstable or questionable.
We carefully screen potential buyers in order to ensure each puppy fits perfectly into their new family. We provide lifetime breeder support and encourage all of our puppy buyers to stay in touch - we love to hear how our dogs are doing! All companion puppies are sold on spay/neuter contracts and we reserve the right to refuse a sale.
Occasionally we may have young adults available who did not turn out for the show ring, but would make excellent family companions. Inquiries are always welcome, and we ask that you please give us as much information about yourself as possible.
