  • How does your waitlist work?
    Those who complete our OWNERSHIP APPLICATION , will be followed up with a phone interview. Once we’ve established lifestyle needs and suitability, applicants are placed on our wait list. We do not operate on a first in line system, instead we have more what you'd call a waiting pool. This is why it is so crucial that we get to know applicants, their lifestyle, temperament requests, and gender/color preferences. We try to find the best match for both puppy and buyer. Our waiting pool fluctuates, so we are always accepting new applications. If we cannot assist you, we are happy to direct you to another reputable breeder who can.
  • Do I get to pick my puppy?
    Not exactly, but let me explain. We want long-term success for our puppies and buyers, the temperament testing and structural evaluations we do at 8 weeks will determine which puppy or puppies are best suited for you, your family, and your lifestyle. While your gender preference is important, we will not make any placement recommendations based on colour preferences. If we have more than one puppy that we feel is a good match, we will give you choice.
  • What is AVIDOG and Puppy Culture

Conditioned Emotional Responses to teach positive associations with important puppy skills, such as nail trims, grooming, crate training, veterinary handling, enjoying the company of humans and having manners. Manding, which teaches puppies to offer polite behaviors instead of jumping, barking ect.. for attention. Puppy Parties to teach puppies to engage confidently with humans. Resource Guarding prevention Habituation to and desensitization to loud noises and new experiences. and so much more.....

  • I don't live close, will you transport a puppy?
    We prefer new families to come and pick up their puppy personally. Occasionally transport is available from us depending on location or with a flight nanny. Those living outside of Canada will require a transport professional through the International Pet and Animal Transportation Association. Transport across the Canadian border will have customs clearance requirements. Be sure to visit your country’s border services website for specific requirements. Travel is an additional expense so budget accordingly.
  • Are your dogs health tested ?
    Yes! We follow the breed health testing recommendations from the American Boxer Club and the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. We strive to produce healthy, long lived dogs. Unfortunately not all diseases are testable (cancer) which is why we carefully study pedigrees and look for longevity and COD on ancestors. All our breeding animals are health tested prior to breeding and a minimum of two years old. Holter Monitor: A 24-hour EKG (electrocardiogram) that tests for the presence of PVCs (Premature Ventricular Contractions). This test screens for Boxer Arrythmic Cardiomyopathy, and is repeated annually. Advanced Cardiac Exam, conducted by a board certified cardiologist: Doppler Echocardiogram: An ultrasound of the heart that detects abnormal flow velocities and allows for the diagnosis and quantification of the severity of Aortic Stenosis. A clear Doppler after the dog is 24 months of age is considered conclusive (the dog does not have AS). Cardiac Auscultation: A stethoscopic examination of the heart that detects murmurs that may be indicative of AS. OFA Hips (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals Inc): An X-ray of the pelvic joint to screen for hip dysplasia. Ratings of "Excellent," "Good," or "Fair" are considered to be free of HD. OFA Thyroid: A blood test to detect autoimmune thyroiditis. CERF (Canine Eye Registration Foundation) testing screens for heritable eye diseases such as PRA (Progessive Retinal Atrophy).
