Puppy's First Steps
An overview of the process used to develop puppies that fit our mission.

Here at Tri Peaks, we do our best to ensure that every puppy we raise has the best possible start, before they go to their forever homes. There are many benefits to the things we do that have been scientifically proven to develop healthier puppies; mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Starting from the moment they are born, until the time they leave, each puppy is handled several times daily. Importantly, from day 3 though day 17 of the puppies' lives, we follow a program of early neurological stimulation.This program helps to stimulate their nervous system, which has been proven to improve their resistance to disease, stress tolerance, and cardiovascular performance. You can read more about this program here.

Around 14 days of age, when the puppies' eyes and ears open, they are then exposed to a variety of sights and sounds, which further improves their ability to tolerate stress. We also provide them with several toys and play equipment that helps develop their mental learning, such as problem solving.

Throughout the rest of their development, the puppies are further exposed to a variety of sights, sounds, textures, people, animals, and environments. Therefore, developing a well socialized, well adjusted puppy.

By 8 weeks of age the puppies will have had their dew claws removed, 1st round of shots, been wormed, and been examined by a licensed veterinarian prior to going to their forever homes. 

Scheduling a Visit
We welcome and encourage prospective puppy buyers to come visit the puppies. However, we do not allow visits until the puppies are at least 4 weeks old. This time allows the puppies to build their immune systems so that they are more resilient to any pathogens brought in.

We do allow prospective puppy buyers to meet our other dogs at any time, and encourage them to watch our dogs in action at shows and in training.

To schedule a visit please email us at:

Bringing Home Puppy
Puppies cannot go to their new homes until they are 8 weeks old.

At 8 weeks of age, puppies can start going to their new homes. To prepare for your new puppy we encourage you to read the "Welcoming Your New Puppy Home" section of the Puppy Pamphlet.

With each puppy we will provide the following:
  • The option of a new collar
  • The option of a new toy
  • A small bag of puppy food
  • That puppy's kennel health record and veterinary health record
  • AKC and/or UKC Registration papers
  • Certified Pedigree
  • Any handouts from the Puppy Pamphlet

Registration Information
ALL our puppies are sold with
and a
Full registration, without the spay/neuter contract, is available for show and hunt homes, at an additional cost. Show quality puppies will be priced individually based on their pedigree and conformation.  Please let us know if you are interested in full registration at the time you submit your deposit.

Limited Registration--no matter the organization registered with--means the dog is registered, but absolutely no litters produced by the dog are eligible for registration.
Puppy Availability
It is highly recommended that you read through the information below, as it is important for understanding how to purchase a puppy.

Once we have confirmed a litter--either by ultrasound at 30 days or by x-ray at 50 days--we will announce the pregnancy and begin accepting/applying deposits.

We, the breeder, reserve the 1st and/or 2nd pick of any litter.
Deposits are added to the waiting list in the order that we receive .
This means if you were the third person to request a black male, you will be the third person on the waiting list for a black male.

After the litter is born we will make an announcement of how many puppies there are and in what genders and colors. We will then contact everyone on that litter's waiting list if there is a puppy available for them, or if, unfortunately, there is not one available.

We will then select the most appropriate puppy or puppies for each buyer, keeping the buyer's interests in mind. We practice this kind of selection, because we know from experience that it can be very overwhelming seeing a litter of puppies and then having to choose. By narrowing down the litter to only the puppies that have the qualities a particular buyer is looking for, it makes it much easier for the buyer to choose the best puppy. Of course, if the particular puppy a buyer is looking for is not in our selection we will allow the buyer to look at the entire litter.

We, the breeder, reserve the right to refuse to place a puppy with an individual and/or family that we feel may not have the best interest of the puppy at heart.
If a puppy is not placed for this reason, the deposit, and only the deposit, will be refunded to the buyer.

We recommend that you place a deposit on an expectant litter if you wish to purchase a puppy. Your deposit ensures you are part of the pool of buyers that will be matched with a puppy, if a puppy is available that fits you needs.  If there is not a current litter that you wish to buy from, you can still place a deposit (non-specific litter deposit). We plan litters almost every year and have a variety of crossings that might suit your needs better.
