1 year or older that have gone through our board and train program.
We send some of our more stubborn dogs to board and train, we get
them to learn the basics. This program costs us $2950, but we think
every penny spent is beyond worth it. You get a great dog that is well trained and we send a dog to it's forever home that may not have made it otherwise. When you adopt from us, we make a LIFETIME commitment to you and them.

There is so much that goes into adopting a new pet. This is a 8-20 year commitment depending on the breed you want to adopt.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself before applying!
Are you allowed to have an animal where you live?
We do ask that you provide your rental agreement with the clause about pets. If you own your home, a lot of homeowners insurance have breed restrictions. Make sure you look at it and understand it!
Do you have time for a dog?
Let's be real we are all in a weird place with COVID, some of us now work from home and think it is a great time to get a puppy. You have lots of time and it seems perfect. But have you thought about when your work switches back to in office? What will you do with your new best friend?
Do you have the patience to train a puppy?
Potty training is hard work! It take lots of consistency and patience. How will you keep your puppy busy and out of trouble?
OK you have made it this far and you think it's the right time...
Do you have everything for the arrival of your new dog?
Crate, Food, Bowls, Leash, Collar, Bed
Do you have a vet selected?
If you are new to pet ownership ask your friends and family who they recommend. We love our partners at VCA Sunset Animal Medical Center! If you already have a vet make sure you call and get an appointment right away!
We have saved so many lives, with out our adopters we would not be able to save more mama's and babies!
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn.
