Puppy Purchase Information
Please note that our contract is legal and binding when signed. There are NO negations on our contract.
Once we receive your deposit and contract, we will place you on waiting list immediately & you will then receive information/updates about planned litters.
Timing of litters is uncontrolled as well as a successful pregnancy and viable puppies. Nosam Kennels is not able to control the timing of heat cycles, number or gender of puppies. We also have the right to cancel a litter due to the best interest of the parents involved (we put the health of our parent dogs paramount to having a litter). In the event a litter is cancelled, a litter does not take or there are not enough puppies buyers will be given other upcoming options. Heat cycles and timing is not guaranteed. Wait time for a puppy is typically 4-6 months at minimum but can be longer. This means if a litter is unsuccessful or does not have enough puppies, correct sex, you will be bumped to the next litter until we have an available puppy for you and your deposit will transfer over to the next litter.
A responsible breeder will always do what’s best for their dogs and their clients. In order to provide healthy, well bred puppies, we have invested large amounts of money into our program. This would include health testing each dog, building a breeding facility for the dogs to live in, time and money spent on training & titles, and we feed high quality food. We do everything we can to provide the best possible and we support your life of your pup. All this investment reflects the pricing of our puppies. Sure you can find cheaper puppies but you will sacrifice quality and likely pay the same amount or double in vet bills later. Price is listed in our contract!
Non-refundable Deposits are $600 . The $600 comes off the total price (Doesn't include Paypal fees or Taxes) Deposits are collected via Paypal! No Checks or Money orders accepted! DONT SEND VIA FRIENDS AND FAMILY! Note: PayPal does add a 3.5% fee to all transactions & we must charge a 6% sales tax on all puppy sales. A $50 fee will be added which covers your puppies Microchip transfer. Deposits are not refundable this means if there are not enough males or females available you will stay on our general list until there is availability from a litter of your choosing. All deposits are non-refundable and good for the period of one year. If you place a deposit with us we expect that you are serious about getting a puppy from us and are ready to work with us to help you get the right puppy.
HOW DO WAIT LISTS WORK
Nosam works by deposited wait lists only. This means that in order to get a puppy you must commit to joining a waiting list in advance. This means that you have settled on Nosam as "your" breeder. You are not on any other waiting lists with other breeders and you are willing to wait to get a puppy from our kennel. If you are in a rush to get a puppy right now. We are likely not the breeder for you as we usually have our waitlists filled well in advance. So everyone who gets a puppy must be prepared wait. We do this in order to promote responsible puppy buying practices. Those who are shopping responsibly will not be in a rush to bring home a well-bred puppy because they have thought it through and have done enough research to choose us specifically as their breeder. Joining a wait list secures your spot for a puppy from Nosam. However, we reserve the right to refund if we feel you are not a good fit. Please do research to ensure this is the right breed for you. We do not sell puppies to homes where they will be left in kennels, living apart from their families or chained up. If you are not on a wait list we will not notify you of available puppies. Puppies will be sold to those on our lists.
Puppy Buyer must pick up their puppy from Nosam or our private transporter. We are not responsible for arranging shipping, delivery to facility for shipping or paying for the cost of delivery. We will not allow puppies to be shipped via cargo. We have a private transporter that we can put you in touch with to arrange this service.
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH YOUR NOSAM PUPPY?
HEALTH TESTED PARENTS
A responsible breeder is one who among other things does genetic health testing on their breeding dogs in order to ensure that they produce the healthiest puppies possible. Producing puppies means the risk of genetic health issues. The type of testing will vary based on the individual breed.
Many people do not think twice about spending thousands on veterinary care, training, and grooming, but will balk at the purchase price of the puppy. However, price does not necessarily mean that the puppy is well-bred or that genetic testing has been done. It is important for potential puppy buyers to look at the pedigree of their new puppy, ask questions, and see documentation on health and genetic testing that has been done on the parents.
By purchasing a responsibly bred puppy of known pedigree, you can determine if testing has been done for diseases for which they are at risk for based on their breed. With genetic testing, you can avoid the diseases for which the dogs were tested. Genetic testing will not exclude all possible inherited and acquired diseases, but this is your best available option to increase the odds of having taken home a healthy puppy. Puppy buyers can know they are looking at puppies that have a reduced chance of inheriting breed-specific health problems when the parents show favorable health screening results. Thus saving money in the long run
All of our dogs have been screened for at least hip dysplasia before being bred to ensure they are free and clear of OA. We are currently using PENNHIP to screen our breeding stock for Hip Dysplasia. OFA, UC Davis or Embark will be used for further testing. Each breed has various different requirements for testing. You can check the dog’s individual pages to see their results!
Vizslas: Hips, Thyroid, Eyes & Cardiac
German Shorthaired Pointers: Hips, Elbows, Cardiac, Eyes, Cone Degeneration, & Von Willebrand's
HUNT TESTED PARENTS
Most of our dogs have been tested in at least AKC Junior hunter tests. We are working on titling all of them. This may seem like it does not matter if you are going to just get a pet and not use your puppy for hunting but let me tell you why it does. Because we breed our dogs to serve their original purpose this means we follow the breed standard for the IDEAL dog. Pet breeders have no idea how their dogs will react to different environments. Thus they really don't know what temperaments their dogs will produce.
Our dogs have to be great around crowds of strange people, horses, ATV's (judges ride horses or ATV's at tests), other strange dogs they've never met, and be desensitized to gunshots to pass a hunt test. They are testing in various weather as well (heat, rain, snow, wind) and show they can handle the pressures of those environments with ease along with being easy to train basic obedience commands in uncontrolled environments where we are not allowed to use training aids such as e collars. Thus this shows our dogs are well tempered and easy to train for the average family. Most of our puppies go as pets since Upland hunting is expensive and not a need anymore it's more of a luxury sport but we test our dogs to prove they are worthy of producing pups that conform to the breed standard in looks, ability and temperament. Is a puppy from pet stock really the same if it cannot meet those standards? You are simply buying a "knock off".
Each puppy comes with a written health warranty and contract. Please read over the contract to obtain information on the full written guarantee. Those getting pets understand that pet puppies are pups priced with slight imperfections and we do not guarantee against cosmetics or slight defects that may not affect the well-being of the dog such as a overshot/undershot bites, hernias or other structural cosmetics issues that do not affect general long term health. By signing our contract you the risks involved in taking responsibility for a live animal. A copy of our health warranty will be signed at pick up or upon receiving your puppy. A copy will be provided to you as well in your puppy folder.
All puppies are sold on non-breeding AKC LIMITED or Limited non breeding NAVHDA registration. This means you cannot breed your puppy & when you sign our contract you agree to not allow your puppy to be bred. We do NOT offer puppies with full registration. Please note that we have the option to choose weather a litter is AKC or NAVHDA registered.
A collar tag isn't enough. If your dog's collar breaks or its collar tag falls off or becomes illegible, a microchip permanently identifies your pet to help your pet get back to you if it is ever lost or stolen. All puppies are microchipped and enrolled in AKC Reunite before they leave our home. AKC reunite microchipping is included in the price of your puppy. We also prepay to enroll your puppies microchip. Nosam Kennels will be added as alternative contact in case, for some reason, you cannot be contacted.
