The Process of Purchasing & raising a Wyldrose aussie
If you’re interested in one of our available Australian Shepherd puppies, contact me through email, text or call, or Facebook messenger to initiate contact. Before a deposit or pre-deposit can be placed we need to speak on the phone to get better acquainted. If you would like to be placed on our wait list, a pre-deposit of $100.00 (non-refundable) may be placed. A $400.00 deposit (non-refundable) can be made once there is a puppy you would like us to hold for you. The $500.00 total (both deposits can be made by personal check or PayPal) will go towards the balance and if the temperament of the puppy isn’t a good match, you may transfer the deposit to another litter but it will NOT BE REFUNDED.
The balance owed needs to be paid in CASH ONLY at time of pick up.
The contract you will be signing is below.
Yes, all prospective Aussie parents at Wyldrose are health tested and you can see a copy of their results on the Our Aussies page. I do everything possible to ensure I’m producing the healthiest puppies possible.
Yes, we have a deworming and vaccination protocol that involves worming the puppies at two weeks of age and thereafter every 2 weeks until they head home. First puppy vaccine is given at 8 weeks of age, then they need to be scheduled every 3-4 weeks until the series is completed. Rabies vaccination is done at 12 weeks of age.
The breed standard calls for a docked tail, so yes, every puppy will have their tail and dewclaws removed after they’re born. Tails are to show standard, no nubs.
Our kids are all young adults now, so our puppies and adult Aussies see younger kids when our nieces and nephews or friends with younger kids come to visit and of course they play with the puppies when they do visit.
We live on an active horse ranch and our Aussie puppies are socialized to barn kitties, other Aussies, our pet goat and mini mare as well as desensitized to all the sights and sounds of Quarter Horses and barn life from tractors to equipment trailers and not to mention our busy household atmosphere.
Our babies are a little spoiled! Below you will see what each item in the feed pan consists of. The Aussie babies are fed this twice daily: softened Purina dry chow with full fat, plain yogurt, probiotics, and a few bites of the refrigerated fresh food. Fresh, cool water offered at all times.
This is what all Wyldrose Aussies eat, and what you need to purchase for your new puppy for at least the first month of transition.
This is found in the refrigerated section of a local grocery store and a few bites are added to each meal.
This probiotic is found online at Revival Animal Health. It is added to each meal. Our puppies have been on this since birth, starting with the paste.
Your puppy was used to eating with littermates in one feed pan, so they may not be as excited to eat now that the competition is gone. Definitely keep full fat plain yogurt or cottage cheese on hand to mix with their food and begin with 1/2 cup dry chow, morning and night. If they eat that amount quickly then increase the amount to 3/4 cup or 1 full cup, then pick their food up. This way you can control potty times easier. Also, you may or may not need to soften their feed with water. I usually mix softened food 50/50 with non softened food at this time.
First of all - Crate Train your puppy! They are already acclimated to a crate and used to being confined while indoors so definitely set up an x-pen with a crate (and a piddle pad on the floor for accidents) and take him/her outside - Consistently. As soon as they wake up, pick them up and carry outside to their potty area. After eating or drinking or napping, back outside to the potty area. Every hour for the first week be consistent about taking them outside to the same area, try to help them have no accidents and they will learn quickly. The puppies we raise are already partially house trained when they come to you. They will not soil their indoors puppy area. See pics below to see how we raise our pups.
Yes and Yes! Wyldrose Aussie babies are microchipped at their 7 week old health check at our vet clinic. While our adult dogs are duel registered with AKC & ASDR, I only register my litters with the AKC and the prices of my puppies includes registration so you don’t have to do that part. Their Limited (unless otherwise discussed) AKC registration certificate will be mailed to you directly from the AKC as well as microchip information linked to your new puppy’s registration. I will need a registered name of your choosing. Be aware that “WYLDROSE” will be at the beginning of the puppy’s name.
