Millstones Golden Puppy Visitation
Rules, Guidelines, & Protocols.

To protect your puppy, our litters and adult dogs from communicable diseases, we ask that you adhere to the following visitation guidelines. This is to ensure the safety of the newborn puppies. No puppy sale is worth us losing a litter of puppies because we allowed someone to bring in parvo or kennel cough! We will be more than happy to send references from past puppy homes.

Parvo
Kennel Cough

1. Visitation will only ever be on a Sunday. We work other jobs, and are based out of our family home we cannot be expected to drop everything we are doing (Family time / Meals) to allow visitation, we kindly ask that you respect this rule.

2. Visitation of puppies can begin after 4 weeks of age. By this time they have acquired good maternal immunity, received their first parvo vaccination, their eyes and ears are open, and they are playful. Visitors before this age put unneeded stress on the puppies and mothers.

3. Please do not visit any other kennels, the veterinarian, or handle any other dogs 72 hours prior to the day of your visit. Puppy diseases are easily spread by even the most casual contact. In the best interest of our puppies and adults, we are very careful about preventing the transmission of diseases to them. We take every precaution that we can to make sure that our puppies are not exposed to any kinds of disease that you may carry on your shoes or even on your hands. These diseases can be picked up and carried on your shoes for DAYS. Anywhere a dog has been: parks, pet stores, rest stops, parking lots, even your Veterinarians office. We have no idea what anyone has stepped in along the way that you couldn’t even see, such saliva, urine, or feces from an infected dog OR off someone else’s shoes from an infected dog.

4. We NEVER allow any other dogs or animals around our kennels. PLEASE leave your other animals at home, as they will not be allowed out of your vehicle. Just another precaution for our dogs and puppies.

5. We do not allow anyone to view our kennel or where we house our puppies. We don't do this to be mean or rude, we do this for the protection of our dogs and puppies. Our Veterinarian comes to our house often for house calls.

We hope that all of our families have the comfort of knowing that their puppy will have the best possible care and protection that they can get.
