Buying a puppy from Top of the Hill Huskies
We love huskies and want to share this awesome breed with those who are well-educated about the beautiful animal.
As a family, we have plenty of husky horror stories, and we are eager to share them with any potential buyers because we need to make sure that our babies end up in the best homes possible with someone who is prepared.
We list our puppies on Nextdaypets.com and Puppyfind.com, which is usually where the buying process begins.
When we receive an inquiring email, phone call, or text, we like to start out by screening the owner and asking about their knowledge on the breed and what kind of household the puppy will be going to.
Next we usually send pictures of the litter and the parents, and we give the best description of the puppy's personality that we are able to at its age.
After these steps, we can usually tell how serious a buyer is which leads to the deposit. We require a $200 nonrefundable deposit on our puppies. Final payment is due at or before the picking up or dropping off of the puppy.
As the puppies age, we continue to update the future buyer with pictures and information on how the puppy is growing and developing.
After the puppies leave our home and go to their new families, we like to remain in contact and watch how they age, so expect to hear from us even after the puppy has left our care!
Our puppies can start going to their new homes at seven weeks. They will have their rear dew claws removed and will have been wormed. Vaccines will be provided at eight weeks if the puppies are still in our care. The puppies go to their new homes with AKC papers unless marked otherwise, a pedigree, a collar and a leash, a sample of the food he or she has been on, a toy, and a packet of information on the breed.
We love to talk huskies, so if there are any questions before, during, or after picking up the puppy, we'd love to discuss and answer as best as we can!
The first few hours and the first night with a puppy are the most difficult, as it is quite an adjustment for the baby. They are used to being around our family, our home, our huskies, and their siblings. They will act dopey or scared, may whine or cry, won't know what the leashes function is, and may have runny poo and not want to eat. This is all normal. Give the puppy some time to adjust and get comfortable around you, and then s/he'll be his normal, hyper, happy-go-lucky self. Huskies are difficult to potty train, and while here, the puppies have already begun training themselves not to go to the bathroom where they sleep. It is because of this developing behavior that we encourage people to crate train the puppies to help housebreak them.
It is our policy to have any of our dogs be returned to us if the new owner is unable to keep him or her. We will always have a home for the baby or can help find a new forever home. There are too many dogs in shelters as is, and we do not want our huskies to end up there, not matter what the reason is for you not being able to keep the dog.
