LITTERS

 

  "Life is too short to hunt with an ugly dog"

Visit the Nursery, and News Pages for Pictures

All pups have dew claws removed, are Microchipped, Vet checked,  dewormed 3 times, have their first vaccination at 6 weeks, come with a Written Guarantee,  are raised in the house with outside Outings, and are exposed to feathers.

I specialize in breeding Hunting Companions that can Hunt and run Hunting Tests

    I don't do Custom Puppy Orders.

     I only take deposits for gender/color of a breeding that I know is going to happen, and that I don't promise a certain size/look/head or timeframe or have a menu of potential breedings for people to choose what they want. I'm too small for people wanting a specific type of pup and I don't care to make those judgments on a 7 week old pup, much less they want to see them much younger 4 weeks or even before their eyes are open, like they know how to pick them out. I will write a synopsis of what I am breeding the litter for, and they will be healthy or they won't be sold, and I want them to be loved for who they are. Rejecting pups is hurtful to me as my life revolves around caring for them.

I can't promise your new puppy will be a clone of your old dog, or every size you want as an adult from a 7 week old puppy. I won't do that nor will I search for your perfect puppy. I do not take deposits specifically for a future "First Pick" of anything because they are always reserved for me or for returning clients that want another pup because they have lost their dog, and who are not dictating specific attributes they want in a pup. While I understand people having specific desires in a puppy, the requests are becoming ridiculous lately, and I don't wish to participate in this type of ordering a puppy like from a catalogue and rejecting the imperfect in their eyes.

If other people selling pups are telling you they can promise you everything you want in a single puppy, they are marketing to you. I see lies and deception in advertising all the time. Be careful and verify health certs, especially if they just started breeding. Also, Puppies change when they leave the dynamics of the litter.

Pups are not shown until after their first vaccination given at 6 weeks.

 No "Kennel" Visits Here

Do not just Stop In. Strictly Enforced!

This policy is to prevent disease spread by those visiting other kennels and to protect the Dam's privacy. The third reason is you can't tell anything. Under 2 weeks they look alike and are sleeping & eating but eyes and ears closed.  Even two to four weeks they are just getting around, but still not much difference between them. Pictures are on the Nursery page but at 4-6 weeks their maternal immunity is wearing off, and they are very susceptible to disease. After 6 weeks and their first vaccination, you can see differences, but by then many are reserved. Many previous buyers just want a puppy and are happy to get on the list. If you don't want to put down a deposit until they are ready that is fine, but some people don't want last pup either. Some don't care. Then they change when they get away from their siblings.

Pups are raised in my Home

Sires are seldom here as I use frozen semen, outside studs, and my stud is usually at training or running a trial

 Pictures are in the Nursery

   

Pups are picked in order a $200 deposit is received at the pick-up date so you will not know "which one" is available. If you are trying to find a duplicate of your old dog I can't guarantee what the puppies will look like and looking for your old dog is not fair to the new puppy. You must be ready to accept a new puppy as his own individual self and you will love him for his own traits. The Pick up date is determined by the birth date and it must be your priority, to keep this date open. I don't want to hear about vacations or childrens' sporting events or I will pick yourt pup or you will relinquish your place for a puppy.

I do not know what color or sex pups will be nor does it matter what the female "had before". Ultrasounds can't even confirm counts. X-rays may be taken just before whelping, but only enable counting. Females may have any assortment of sexes or colors.

Tangier X Moose MH All Chocolate Ready at the end of December/January 2020

Hunting and Family Companion    

   Chocolate Females $1250, Chocolate Males $1200

Sire: Moose Pekar of Greendale, MH (left) is a handsome, well built dog who weighs about 75 pounds.  He has an easy going house personality and is a highly trainable gun dog.  In running his AKC hunt tests he passed 5 for 5 tests in the Senior and 5 for 5 in the Master.  He has natural talents for the field which include marking abilities and a great nose.  Locked n Loaded strives to produce pups that have this combination of intelligence, natural talent, trainability and house disposition.  The looks is a plus.  Moose is the son of Locked 'N' Loaded's Down and Dirty, MH  (Mud). 

Tangier was previously bred to Mud MH, Moose's sire. She is a dark, animated females about 60 pounds, who produces natural hunters that catch on to hunting early, but are also great family companions. First litter with Moose.

Tangier X Mud  Tangier X Mud Rico SH, Kira's sire

 

The perfect :"retrieving machine" and Family dog.

Lucy's first pheasant hunt 1 year, 3 months old. (Tangier/Drake). Just minutes after entering the field she flushed 6 pheasants, with Mike shooting his limit of 2. Comes so naturally to her! It made Mike's entire year and she was pretty proud, too! First of MANY hunts. ??

 

Just checking in to let you know how Lucy (TangierxDrake) is doing.  We've had labs from pups for many years and Lucy is the most trainable and affectionate dog we've ever had!  At 5 months old, she knows basic commands and is very trustworthy around the house.  As you'll see in the pictures, she and our daughter are the best of friends.  When not keeping her company, Lucy is a retrieving machine.  There is a facility a couple of blocks from home where she has a pool to practice her water retrieves.  She leads a very charmed life and couldn't be more loved.  Thank you for giving us this wonderful addition to our family! 

Please keep us posted if you ever do a repeat breeding of Tangier and Drake.  We would be very open to a full sister of hers.

        Winter/Spring 2020 Future Possibilities

 

 Breeding date & stud can change depending when the female comes in heat which is not on schedule. It takes about 4 months from the start of the heat cycle until they are ready to place in homes. Many Females go in heat on their time, not what the books say; therefore, I don't know what I am going to have next year or even next time.

    

I do not breed FOR Christmas puppies, but it looks like these two females will be coming in heat and ready just after Christmas. I will NOT let them go home before 7 weeks for Christmas, so don't ask because it's State Law.   

It's better pups are not brought in on Christmas because if there are children involved there is too much excitement. A picture can be provided for a surprise and they will be picked up later.

 

Repeat Joey (Blue X Ben SH) x Drake QA2 Blacks & Chocolates, due in heat Nov./December Ready March????

Vanna ( Goose daughter) X Deeks MH (Gates son) Chocolates due in heat December /January, Ready April/May?????

Puppy pick up is traditionally the first weekend after they reach 7 weeks except if I feel they need an extra week of growing.

If you have a conflict, don't send a deposit, because I will not hold puppies except pertaining only to their health, not for your schedule or vacations. Puppy pick-up date must be YOUR priority.

I'm simplifying my life. I do not ship by air or arrange for ground transportation anymore. Delta is no longer an option for carry ons as they are saying the puppy must be 10 weeks. Sometimes you may fly in for pick up it must be 8 weeks and I will probably pick for you.

In short, no long distance sales anymore unless you drive here on the pick up day or you allow me to pick for you.

I also don't take orders for "Custom Puppies" or cater to your schedule.

Appointments are made 2 weeks before Pick-up, when you will receive a care file and where to obtain the puppy food

There is a description of litter expectations on the Litter write-up. Even though I may have individuals that are more laid back, I may not be able to tell personalities if at all until close to 6-7 weeks or exact size of pups as adults.

 Most Pups will be sold with a Limited Registration* except if I know you from competing, etc

All sales at farm subject to 5.6% Wisconsin State Sales tax

Deposit is $200, checks accepted for Deposit

You have a week to get your deposit in but you MUST commit on the phone or email (which I log) that you are mailing a deposit to hold your place, otherwise I go by day postmarked. If deposits come the same day it is noted when you contacted me and said you are sending a deposit.

Mail is very slow for deposits now, often taking a week. If you want the only puppy available in a color, sex, or last in the litter, USE PAYPAL (friends and family) or PRIORITY to get your deposit here quickly or the pup may be sold because the deposit is late. Saying you will get back to me does not hold a pick place!

Deposits are non-refundable once you are matched with a puppy unless there isn't a puppy for you, if the puppy fails a vet exam, if the buyer has not been honest or failed to disclose relevant facts, or the placement is not in the best interest of the puppy as determined by the Breeder.  Your Deposit is not a contract, it just holds a place for a puppy and I reserve the right to return a Deposit at any time. The pups belong to me until I sign over the registration application and you leave my premises. If there is not a puppy for you, you are allowed to forward the deposit one time to the next litter with an available puppy and your pick is the next in line for the next litter. You don't get the same pick place.

  

Pups will be on ProPlan Sport  Chicken and Rice Formula All Life Stages 37 1/2-lb bag with the same Protein, Fat, and Calcium content which is correct for Large Breed puppies.  My dog in training with Timber Ridge Retrievers also get Pro Plan Performance and have grown well. If you have a favorite food, and Fromms is one, you may switch if you like after 2-3 weeks of being on the Pro-Plan, to get pups past the stress of going into their new homes. You can also choose to use the Pro-Plan Focus Large Breed Puppy but it has corn

Chewy.com has it. Free Shipping, if you order the minimum.  Some Petsmarts have it. Fleet Farms maybe

Go to Petsmart website, find the food, put in your zipcode, and it will tell you the store to go to.

Now Menards and Fleet Farm have it

Pet World in Menomonee Falls has it 

Unfortunately I have had to change my policy regarding checks. You can send a check for a deposit and it will be cashed before you receive your puppy, but please make the final payment in cash when you pick up your puppy, (the balance plus 5.6% sales tax on the entire amount) or send a check to arrive 2 weeks before you pick up the puppy.

You can also send money through Paypal using your credit card. Select  Friends and Family

Thank you for understanding.

 For precautionary reasons I no longer allow viewing of puppies before their 1st vaccinations at 6 weeks except under special circumstances. After having someone bring a pathogen here, I lost 4 pups. My Repro Veterinarian, who is also a breeder, told me not to allow visitors until after they have had their first vaccination. Visitations are being limited due to the possibility of Canine Herpes Virus, cross-contamination from other kennels with a newer strain of Parvo AND for the privacy of the mothers.  I have also been told there has been Parvo right in my area by the AKC and State Inspectors. There are pictures on the nursery page. The pups are going to change dramatically anyway by the time they are ready, and their personalities are just becoming noticible by 6 weeks. This is being done to protect the health of the puppies, whether people are visiting other kennels or not, and also for the privacy of the mothers. The Moms are not themselves because Mother Nature gives them hormones to protect their babies. They don't want to meet you or your children for you to see if they are friendly.  After nursing they will not look like themselves either for a few weeks. I try to keep a calm atmosphere for the Moms.  I believe in as relaxed environment as possible and viewing puppies can be done on the website in the nursery, not in person. Pups are chosen in order of deposit, often before they are born, from people not in the vicinity, so which pups are left are not known until the previous pups have been chosen. 

All the pups are in the house and not outside in a facility so no facility tours here. In fact if that's what you are looking for, please pass by as I don't want Parvo, Kennel Cough or other diseases tracked here on clothing and shoes from another place with problems. Almost All insurers will not insure in-house puppy establishments, just puppies raised in cages in outside buildings. That is the reality we are living in now. I do have liability insurance because I have a record of no incidents, but I will not give tours in my house where my dogs live. In most cases the sires are not here either because they are picked for being a good match with the Mom, often Field Champions, Qualified All Age or Master Hunters. Places that always have the sire and dam are not always the best breedings and often those you find in the newspaper. Pups are raised in my living area, not in a kennel or other building.

  

All pups are raised inside my home and have outings outside weather permitting

Dew claws are removed, first set of vaccinations, dewormed at least 3X, microchipped, written guarantee, vet examined,

exposed to feathers, and guaranteed to be non-affected for EIC and CNM

    

All Bred Females receive Omega 3 Fish Oil | High DHA Triple Strength Pharmaceutical Grade Liquid Softgel Capsules

All my pregnant and nursing Females are fed Farmina food made in Italy.

  Dams will also be supplemented with high DHA fish oil. I do have Farmina here to purchase.

    Preparing for your puppy and taking the puppy home 

 

Deposits are nonrefundable but may be applied to one other litter; however, I consider the purchase of a dog or puppy to be an adoption. I reserve the right to refuse the sale of a dog or puppy or will destroy a deposit to any person for any reason including misrepresentation, inappropriate home, gifting, boyfriend girlfriend problems, or a demanding or impaired working relationship between the seller and buyer. Refund will be within 30 days for those reasons only.  Although I will try to find the puppy that is a fit for your family, no breeder can make a designer puppy and this is not a store mall. You are adopting one of my babies, and if you don't agree with how I do things, you need to look for another breeder you are comfortable with and can agree.

All payments for pups to be held must be paid in full and cleared 1 week prior to the 7 week old date. No shipping at this time.

      

 

   

 

You must drive long distance and sometimes fly in if I am available and take the puppy as a carry-on, except not on Delta     ErinsEdge@charter.net 

I sell to families, meaning couples, that live in one house with a long-standing relationship. I will not sell to boyfriend/girlfriends gifting each other, or anyone that gifts or resells. I want to know where my pups are going and that home must be an approved adoptive home.

*I prefer to sell to homes that do not intend to breed. I rarely will make an exception on an individual basis except with people I know or who have a history on Entry Express AND are Approved. Breeding has become very complicated with EIC and new DNA testing; therefore, all pups will be sold with a Limited Registration.  This means you can not breed them.  You can run any AKC event except compete in the Conformation Ring (Show). You may have it changed to Full Registration once the dog is 2 years old and has successfully passed all its health certifications. The health certifications are OFA hips and elbows, Eye Certification done by a licensed Ophthalmologist, and DNA testing for EIC and CNM if needed. You must also pay me an additional $250.  The dog must have attained a field title of at least SH or by approval Since I sell on Limited Registration,  I do not do EIC testing on puppies. If you want EIC testing on pups prior to purchase you are welcome to pay for the testing.

   Important information about what to look for in a puppy, PLEASE READ even if you are just looking

  If the litter you are looking at does not have one EIC clear parent (Exercise Induced Collapse) or if the breeder doesn't even know what EIC even is, you risk getting a puppy that will collapse during hunting or even when excited.

At the end of the article is a link to download the testing requisition.

An explanation of EIC 

EIC U of MN and Brochure pdf

A carrier is a HEALTHY DOG that will NOT show the EIC condition EVER, but is not clear for breeding purposes.

Erin's Edge will NOT produce or sell EIC or CNM Affected Puppies because one parent will always be clear.

We will not produce EIC or CNM affected pups. An EIC carrier status does not affect their health or working ability, and is only of consequence if you want to breed. All dogs carry recessive genes that are considered Deleterious Mutations. It's like blue eyes are recessive to brown eyes in that you may have blue eyed children if the other parent also has the hidden blue eyed gene or has blue eyes.

 Please be patient with the picking process.  It is difficult to arrange all buyers in order of deposit for 3 or 12 buyers. The pick-up date is usually known after birth and the State of Wisconsin will only allow puppies to leave at 7 weeks. I realize everyone is busy, and there are emergency last changes, but please don't disrupt the pick-up times for your childrens' sporting events. The puppy pick-up date is very important. If you have a vacation planned, don't put a deposit down for a puppy and expect me to keep the puppy longer. The same with a family gathering. Please be courteous to me and sometimes I  actually have plans. In the event you can't come, I will either pick the puppy for you or at times I will refund your deposit if communication becomes difficult.

 

 Pups are born in a whelping box in my computer-TV room so I can keep an eye on them. When they are being weaned they may either stay in a bigger pen with a potty box or go to an intermediate area in the basement with a living space and separate potty area and then they are brought outside for outings or play depending on the weather. Some litters are whelped at the homes of the females' families. Pups are home raised, dewormed multiple times, vet checked, dews claws removed, first vaccination, well socialized, exposed to feathers, introduced to crates, and microchipped and come with AKC limited registration unless there are previously agreed terms. I also supply over 30 pages of puppy notes and lifetime support for your puppy. Pups come with limited hip/eye guarantees.

   

A new unknown virus was spreading last year which can kill in as little as 48 hours from the onset of symptoms, and is negative on the Parvo snap test. It is being called Circovirus. "Symptoms include bloody diarrhea and vomiting, extreme lethargy, neurological problems, a lack of appetite and other maladies. What made these cases unique is what the pathologist terms ‘acute necrotizing vasculitis.’ This is when the blood vessels become suddenly damaged and fluid begins leaking out of the vessels’ and they developed fluid around their lungs and in the abdomen.”  There is also the possibility of cross-contamination from other kennels from H3N3 canine influenza, a new strain of Parvo, a new strain of Kennel Cough, and the new strain of Canine Influenza

PARVO WARNING!!! Breeders, buyers, stud owners, be aware, a breeder near Springfield, IL area had a confirmed parvo pup sent home (to MN). Use caution in your travels with your dogs and be aware of who is coming on your property. 10/25/16
