How are our dogs and puppies raised?

We raise our puppies as well as our adult dogs in our home because they are part of our family. We do not and will not ever put our dogs or puppies in outdoor kennels. They are out with us during the day and the youngsters sleep in crates at night. Our dogs are our entire world and we wouldn't have it any other way. We use Empowered Breeder and Puppy Culture methods to ensure we are producing well socialized puppies. We introduce our puppies to Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) and Early Scent Introduction (ESI) from 3 days old to 16 days old. As they continue to grow we do daily handling exercises, noise exposure, object exposure, as well as them meeting people/dogs/kids/cats/etc. to get them used to how their daily life could be in their new home. We start potty training at about 3 weeks old and by 8 weeks of age they understand that outside is where they need to go, but they are still puppies so accidents can happen. At 5 weeks we introduce a crate to the puppies and by 7 weeks they are sleeping overnight in crates with the door open so they have access to go potty. We include each and every puppy/litter into our daily lives because they are family and we expect them to be treated that way.

What does it cost to purchase a puppy from Barefoot Kennels?

Our puppies are $3000. We require a $500 deposit to reserve a spot on our waitlist for any current or future litter. Deposits are to ensure you are serious about a puppy from us. This deposit is NOT refundable but it is transferable to another future litter.
