WHAT DOES YOUR PUPPY COME WITH?

When you purchase an Elwood Golden Retriever you can have the peace of mind that your puppy will be coming from a loving family environment. They are brought up in a rural environment where they have the space to be puppies. Your puppy will be 8 weeks of age and will come:

Vaccinated

Your puppy will receive its first C3 vaccination at 6 weeks of age. The next C5 vaccination is required at 12 weeks of age. It is very important that you do not take your puppy into public places until the 12 week booster shot has been administered. Your puppy is at risk of deadly diseases and not fully covered until the booster shot is given. It is under strict advice that you keep your puppy in your backyard and away from other dogs that you don’t know their vaccination history during this period.

Microchipped

We register your puppy microchip details onto the NSW Registry online microchip database which identifies your puppy on the national microchip database. You will then need to access the NSW Registry website and transfer the microchip into your name.

Wormed

Your puppy will come wormed with Drontal at 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks of age. Worming your puppy is essential to the wellbeing of your dog and can result in a longer life expectancy. A continued worming regime with Drontal once every two weeks until 3 months of age is recommended, and then once every month until 12 months of age. When your dog is 12 months of age worming is required once every three months.

Vet checked

Your puppy comes fully vet checked. Our wonderful and very experienced vet examines your puppy’s structure, bones, eyes, heart, teeth, ears, and skin.

Security Deposit

Our puppies are very popular and we have a high enquiry rate. We keep a waitlist for each upcoming litter. We very seldom have puppies to offer people that are not placed on a waitlist. To secure a puppy or to be placed on a waitlist we require a deposit of $300 which we request by bank transfer. Once you place a deposit, it is available for you to use on any puppy over a 12-month period. Deposits are not refundable. We try to match people with their colour and gender preference as quickly as possible but of course cannot guarantee puppy appearances/sexes before birth, we can only provide an educated guess.

Visitation

We allow people the opportunity to come and meet their puppy between 6-7 weeks of age. This means that puppies are up and walking and old enough to socialise. They will have also had their first vaccination which is an important step in protecting their health. You can arrange a mutually convenient time to meet your puppy once you have placed the security deposit.

Transport

We can organise puppy transport for our interstate buyers. We use Qantas Freight who are fantastic with scheduling and take great care of our puppies. They also offer very competitive prices. Our puppies are flown from Canberra Airport. The cost of the flight is the responsibility of the purchaser. We organise and book all flights for our customers, all you will need to do is collect your puppy from the receiving end.

Final Payment

Once the deposit is received we do not require final payment until pickup. In instances where puppies require shipping, we require final payment for puppy plus the transport the week of delivery. Once flights are booked (usually 5 workings days before the date of the flight) we will forward you the booking confirmation and request for final payment. The funds will need to be cleared into our account before we will ship the puppy. We understand people are sensitive around payments to an unknown source given there are many internet scams circulating in today’s world. We welcome all questions and can be contacted by phone to ease any concerns you may have.
