All of our French Bulldog puppies are sold with a (rather detailed) contract.
All pet French Bulldog pups are placed on a mandatory spay/neuter policy, with limited non breeding registration. This means that if you are in any other country but Canada, your puppy will NOT be registrable with your country’s registry body.
All of our puppies are Canadian Kennel Club registered. The CKC takes considerably longer to provide paperwork than the AKC does, so be prepared to wait for as much as six months after purchase for your paper work to arrive.
We have the occasional show quality French Bulldog puppy available on co ownership to serious show homes, both obedience, rally and conformation. These dogs will be placed on co ownership only, and references will be required. Contact us to discuss this in further detail.
We do not ship our Frenchie puppies – you will have to pick them up in person. As mentioned earlier, we’re located near Mount Forest, Ontario, about 45 minutes north of Guelph, and two hours NW of Toronto. We’re closest to the Buffalo/Niagara Falls border, or the Hamilton or Toronto Airport if you’re flying in. There are private airfields able to easily accommodate private jets within a twenty minute drive of us.
It is possible for us to arrange for a pet nanny to fly your puppy to your home, if timing or distance makes it impossible for you to come in person to pick your puppy up. Pet Nannies travel with the puppy, hand carrying them on board the plane under the seat, and caring for your puppy each step of the trip. Please contact us to discuss this possibility. Nanny fees apply.
The Application Process
We no longer maintain a waiting list. What this means is that we no longer retain inquiries from interested purchasers indefinately, since we always suggest that, since we breed so infrequently, you should feel welcome to look at other sources for your potential puppy, rather than waiting on one from us.
Our new application process is as follows:
Subscribe to our low volume mailing list.
The mailing list is used to make announcements regarding planned litters, whelped litters, and available puppies. We’ll also use it to occasionally announce puppies which other breeders we respect have available. It is very low volume.
Fill out an application form
Once we have announced via the mailing list that we have a puppy available for placement to a good home, we’ll then request that anyone interested contact us. If we think you’re a good fit for one of our puppies, we’ll ask you to fill out a placement application.
The application form is fairly lengthy – we’ll require information on your home, your lifestyle, and any other pets you have. We also require references who can vouch for you.3
Complete a Contract and Send a Deposit
Once your application has been received, we’ll review it and be in touch to let you know if we feel that any of our available puppies might be the right choice for you. If we’re all in agreement, we’ll then request a completed contract and a deposit, to reserve your puppy.4
Come Visit Your Puppy
At four weeks, you’ll be welcome to come and meet your puppy and their siblings, along with their other French Bulldog family members.5
Your Puppy Comes Home!
At 10 weeks, your puppy is ready to go home with you. Remember, we do NOT ship – you’ll have to come to pick your French Bulldog puppy up in person, by car or by air. We can also arrange to have your puppy transported by hand to you, via a puppy nanny.
What Comes Along with Your French Bulldog Puppy
All puppies come with:
- a 50 page baby book containing care information, a suggested shopping list, a list of suggested books and reference manuals and photos and information on their parents. The book is a full color PDF, which you can print if you’d like to keep it for your puppy’s memory box.
- a copy of their pedigree
- a 2 supply of their raw food (if you are in Canada – we can not ship raw)
- Sixty days worth of pet insurance (valid only in Canada)
- implanted microchip, along with a collar tag with their microchip ID information
- a puppy toy imprinted with the smell of their littermates & mother, for ease of transition to puppy’s new home
- all suggested and age appropriate vaccines and wormings done
- a thorough pre leaving Veterinary check up
- any necessary border crossing paper work, if applicable
We are available to you and your new pet for life – contact us at any time if you have any questions or concerns. We will occasionally send along a follow up questionnaire along with your new puppy, for you to complete and return to us in a year’s time. This will allow us to track the health and well being of our puppies. We ask that you keep us informed of any address or phone numbers changes, so that we are able to contact you
Puppies are sold with a mandatory return clause. This means they can never, ever be sold, traded, given away or placed with anyone other than the person purchasing the puppy. If for any reason you are unable to keep them, they MUST be returned to us. We will pursue any and all legal avenues necessary to ensure this is adhered to, and I will be un forgivingly ruthless about this clause, with no exceptions.
