Purchase Process:

Please keep in mind that we usually only have a couple of litters per year and our puppies are always in high demand... we only seek the very best possible homes for our pups.

During the screening process, we will correspond via email and occassionally participate in one-on-one video chats via Skype so that we can get to know each other better. Shortly after birth, we will contact everyone on our Waiting List to announce the total number of puppies and their sexes, coloring, etc. At this point you will be invited to place a non-refundable deposit to reserve a puppy of your chosen sex.

Over the next few weeks, we will keep you informed of the puppies' progress via our Facebook Page, where we regularly post updates and photos, as well as videos. If you live nearby, you are welcome to visit us at our house in Zagreb, Croatia to see the puppies and their dam in real life, as well as to meet us and the rest of our pack. Once the puppies are 4 weeks old, we begin making transport arrangements for the puppies that will be flying internationally to their new homes around the world. Please note, the remaining balance for your puppy should be on our account by the time your puppy is 6 weeks old: (total price - deposit) + transport costs. At the very latest, the outstanding amount MUST be paid at the time you collect your puppy in person. We do not accept "future payments by installments" (after the pups have gone to their new homes) under any circumstance.

Once the puppies are 8+ weeks old they are ready to start going to their new homes. According to our prior arrangement, you can either collect your puppy in person (by car or plane), or meet us at a designated, mutually convenient, location in Slovenia, Austria, Germany or Italy (etc). Depending on your location, it may even be possible for us to drive (hand-deliver) your puppy directly to your house. Alternatively, your puppy can be shipped to you via international plane cargo, or travel by plane (cargo) while accompanied by a person on board the flight, or (depending on your location) it may even be possible for us to fly with your puppy (accompanied in the passenger cabin) directly to your closest international airport.

If necessary, your puppy can stay at our house for an extended period (from 8-16 weeks old) depending on the specific import requirements for your particular country. However, please note that we are only able to keep a maximum of two puppies during this extended period, to ensure that each puppy gets sufficient one-on-one attention and adequate socialization. This service is offered at an additional cost (100 euros per week) to cover your puppy's food, boarding, cleaning and training during these additional 8 weeks, as well as extensive socialization with other dogs, cats and children. For puppies that have to stay with us until 15+ weeks old (with rabies vaccination at 12 weeks old), there is an additional fee of 100 euros to cover your puppy's extra vaccinations (second set of core puppy vaccines at 10 weeks old and third set of core puppy vaccines at 13 weeks old, as well as rabies vaccination at 12 weeks old).
