Puppy Purchase Information
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.
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!
Deposits are $600 and come off the total price. Taxes will be added to this total.
Please note deposits will not be returned in the event that the sex of puppy is not available the puppy buyer has requested. However, the deposit will be transferred to another litter. The puppy buyer will be given the opportunity to move to the end of the deposit list on available puppies of the opposite sex or transfer to a future litter.
Nosam Kennels does not ship puppies. Puppy Buyer must pick up their puppy from Nosam Kennels.
If Puppy Buyer decides to have the puppy delivered then Nosam Kennels does not accept responsibility for any health issues aside from genetic issues that may arise.
We do have a private transporter that we can put you in touch with for delivery.
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
All of our dogs are tested for hunting ability in AKC or NAVHDA tests. Many of our dogs also compete in other sports such as dock diving or fast cat.
If someone is only looking for a pet, why should they consider buying a puppy from parents with a title? After all, their pet will not need the drive or desire that a hunting dog should have; all they want is a good companion. So are titles on the parents really all that important?
Having a title shows that this particular dog is intelligent and trainable, and is capable of being trained reliably to an advanced level. It shows the dog has a desire to work with its handler, and the ability to learn new behavior. The dog that possesses these traits can pass them to its offspring. A dog that does not have these traits cannot! This is very important for the pet owner, because a dog that has the genetic desire to learn and to work with its handler is much easier to train!
A title demonstrates that the breeder does more than just breed their dogs. They are engaged with and involved in other activities besides breeding their dogs over and over.
A title shows that the breeder has had the opportunity to compare their dogs with other representatives of the breed, and to compare them against a set, objective test (that was designed with the pointing breed in mind). Such as AKC hunt tests, field trails or NAVHDA tests.
A title shows that the dog has actually left the breeder’s property, and been exposed to everyday situations beyond the small world of the breeder’s home. A title shows that this dog has been through the stress of training and trialing in an environment much different from its comfortable home, and the dog has handled it successfully
A title shows, in part, that the dog has the proper working temperament of a GSP or Vizsla.
Training and titling a dog thoroughly informs the breeder so that they can make good breeding decisions.
They now know without a doubt who and what their dogs are, and have proven it through the training and titling process. They know where their dog needs to be complemented, and what needs to be corrected for the future breeding.
Which breeder would you rather get a puppy from: one who has thoroughly informed themselves on and proven what their dogs are like through training and titling them, or one who “knows” what their dogs are like at home only, and who decides that this is good enough for breeding, without any objective proof or test?
Each puppy comes with a written health warranty and contract. Please read over the contract to obtain information on the full written guarantee. 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.
