Hi! Welcome to my site. My business is located in Cheyenne, Wyoming. At this time I am not accepting appointments to visit my dogs and puppies. My litters have been selling before they are conceived and born, so I require a non-refundable $600 deposit on all puppies in order to be placed on a list and to hold a puppy for you. (COVID has currently changed this practice. For the time being I am asking that the only time folks come to the house is to pick up their puppy.
I require people buying a puppy to live in a house (not an apartment or a condo) as I have found from experience that Springers need their own home. Rocky Mountain Springer Spaniels reserves the right to the first pick of any litter. The pick of the litter is determined by the order of deposits received.
A person can choose as many puppies as they would like (as long as they are not all spoken for) when it’s their turn to pick. Choosing your new family member happens in the order I received your deposit. Choosing your puppy happens shortly after the puppies are born. If any issue should arise, the deposit can be rolled ahead to another litter but will not be refunded. If there is a large litter born and not all puppies are spoken for, then I go through the waiting list for other litters, in the order in which I received the deposit until I have asked everyone who has placed a deposit if they would like to move up to an earlier litter. If there is a puppy remaining not spoken for then I will post it for sale.
As of September 1, 2020, if you place a deposit prices are as follows: Black-and-white or liver-and-white puppies are sold for $1,400, roaned bi-colored puppies for $1,600, tri-colored puppies for $1,900, and Tri-roans for $2,100, tri-colored sable for $2,200 and tri-colored roan sable for $2,300. Lizbeth is the dam producing the sables and Lucas is a red tri sable roan and will produce these as well. All puppies are sold with an AKC-limited registration. This is a non-breeding contract and puppies are required to be spayed or neutered when they are twelve months old. The proof of completion of this procedure is required to be sent to the breeder, after which the registration form will be sent to you (failure to do this results in the breeder still actually owning the pup as it is registered with RMSS until you send the form in).
Dewclaws and tails are handled when the pups are 4 days old. If you do not want the tails done, you will have to inform me which pup you want by then. The puppies will have their 1st set of shots and will have been dewormed thrice when you take them home.
If you require picking up the puppy after 8 weeks of age, there will be a $60/day charge for continuing the boarding. All puppies must be paid for in full with cash (Venmo or Zelle) before going home with their forever family. You can bring the balance with you in cash or send the deposit via Walmart, Venmo, or Zelle.
When you come to visit and pick up your puppy, please leave other animals at home. They may have their shots updated but many diseases that are fatal to the litter are carried on paws. I work hard to keep the kennels clean and safeguard the pups from anything that can bring harm to the puppies. Please take care to help protect them when you drop by.
You will want to make an appointment to have your pup looked at by a vet within 48 hours of leaving the breeder. This ensures that their health guarantee is in place. Springers can be the best lifelong companions, especially when properly trained. I recommend that you arrange to have your pup trained, or better yet learn to train it yourself as it teaches you how to work with your own dog. YouTube has oodles of good videos to show you how to do this. Zac George is one of my favorites. Feel free to check out his channel.
If for any reason you need to sell your dog or give it away, I reserve the right to have the pup returned to me and the contract you will sign states this.
I have had many folks ask what kind of food dogs can safely eat. I have chosen to feed my adult dogs a raw diet as I feel this is most natural to them, has the least toxins or allergens and provides the best nutrition for a long healthy life. I start the pups on kibble because I do not feel I can make that decision for you and do not want to commit you to something you are not able to do. To help you out, I recommend reading informational articles and make this choice yourself. I can give you information and websites that have helped me. If interested just ask for my help!
A Guardian Home is a great opportunity for a person or family to enjoy a "pick of the litter" puppy that is being considered for breeding by Rocky Mountain Springer Spaniels. These dogs are the cream of the crop as I always choose the best from my litters in order to better the breed.
A Guardian Dog is one that you and I enter in an agreement with together. You would receive a puppy from me to raise as your own for a small fee (half priced) Then when the pup is of age to breed, you would bring her back to be bred. When the time for whelping arrives, you would bring her back again a week before her due date.
She would whelp at my house and the pups would be raised until 8 weeks of age. Your dog is then returned to you until the next time I breed her. There is a deposit to ensure commitment by the Guardian Home which is then reimbursed over the time of the breeding career.
The dog remains the property of Rocky Mountain Springer Spaniels until the end of the breeding career and then becomes the Guardian Home's dog forever after. Typically, at the age of 5 years, the dog then has completed her career in breeding and the contract is fulfilled, then she will be spayed.
There is a commitment and willingness to be flexible for the needs of Rocky Mountain Springer Spaniels, but I believe it is well worth it to receive what is typically a "cream of the crop" puppy. The value of the pup is often $1300-$2,300, so a contract is necessary.
There is a need for me to find the perfect home with the following requirements:
Guardian Homes are responsible for everything else. This includes yearly vaccinations (I require proof of this), vet bills that are not related to the breeding of the dog, regular flea and worming treatments, grooming, and obedience classes.
