Step 2: Order your puppy's NuVet Vitamins We do require use of the NuVet Vitamins as part of our sales contract so please click the image below to order. NuVet offers discounts if you sign up for their auto-ship program. Please note, you can ONLY order NuVet from NuVet. Please do not be duped by similar products on Amazon and other places. They are NOT the same product and will make the contract invalid. To learn more about NuVet, please visit our Nutrition page. To order, please click HERE.
Step 3: Read, Read, Read! Please read all of the following information linked at the bottom of this page. I know there is a great deal of info there, but it will be helpful to you now and as your puppy grows. It is very important that all Chihuahua owners are aware of the information provided in these links. I am not sure how they will print, but you are welcome to print them straight from the website or copy them into a word processor to print them. Step 4: Shot Records For puppies that are flying home, after final payment is made, I will mail your puppy's shot record and NuVet Sample in a folder. The inside cover of the folder will contain the shot record, and the NuVet sample will be in the back of the folder. If you are picking your puppy up, you will receive his folder at the time of pick up.
Step 5: Supplies Now is the time to shop for supplies for your puppy. Check the link below labeled "Shayna's New Puppy Checklist" for my recommended list of supplies. If you are shopping online, I highly recommend Chewy.com. Their prices are excellent and shipping is fast and usually free. If you are not shopping online, the best place to get our food is Pet Smart, though you will probably find it at PetCo as well. It might be available at some Tractor Supply and Atwoods stores too, but you will not find it at WalMart. You should be able to find everything on that list at Chewy.com, except the NuVet. Please note that NuVet is not available from retail stores...not WalMart, not Chewy and not Amazon. There is a different supplement on Amazon with a similar name, but it is NOT the same supplement. You must go to NuVet's website to order. You can click the NuVet banner shown in Step 2 to order. When considering harnesses and leashes, you will want very small harnesses at first. In most brands, a size small does not fit our puppies, but may fit them as adult dogs. You will need an xs or even an xxs in some brands. You will want the neck measurements no more than 9 inches and the chest measurements no more than 13. For some puppies, this will be too large, so it would be better to get an adjustable one where the neck adjusts between 7 and 9 inches and the chest between 10 and 13. These harnesses are not the easiest to find, but American River makes an ombre colored harness that should fit. Puppia also makes several types of harnesses that fit our puppies. If you have questions about supplies, please feel free to call or email Shayna. Step 6: Complete your puppy's registration transfer When you pick up or when your puppy kit arrives in the mail, your puppy's registration certificate will be included in the folder. At the time that puppies go home, ALL puppies are registered to me. You MUST transfer your puppy's registration immediately upon transfer of the puppy from me to you. To do this turn the certificate over and complete the information on the back. I will have already completed my part. Mail your certificate and payment to the addres on the back and they will send you a new certificate. You CAN change your puppy's name. There is a place on the back of the certificate to give your puppy his or her permanent name. Please contact Shayna if you have any questions.
