"Do you have any puppies available?"
One of the most frequent questions that we get is “Do you have any puppies available?” When we have litters they are placed with people on our waiting list so currently the only way to get a puppy from us is to be on our waiting list.
"How long is the wait for a puppy?"
Another question that we get is “How long is the wait?” That is a hard question to answer due to the fact that we can not control heat cycles, pregnancies, the number of puppies born or if people currently on the list will stay on the list or choose to remove themselves from the list due to personal situations. As you might guess, COVID has impacted many lives and people who were once in a position to get a puppy may no longer be able to adopt at this point in their lives. You may or may not realize that dogs normally only have 2 heat cycles per year so we only have 2 chances a year to get them bred. Our puppy program requires that we spend more time with each puppy therefore we can only handle a couple of litters at a time.
With all of these factors in mind we predict that you will wait approximately 6 – 12 month to get a puppy. If you are looking for specific colors, genetics or pedigrees the wait could be longer.
"Why do you have a waiting list and charge deposit to be placed on the list?"
Maintaining a waiting list is a time consuming task. People will often get on multiple breeders wait list at one time then get off once they are offered a puppy. Most of the time these people never even bother to contact the breeder to inform them that they have already purchased a puppy. This makes planning matings extremely difficult. A small deposit seems to solve some of these problems.
Each breeders waiting list works differently. Click the link below to learn about how our waiting list works.
Not all Corgis are created equal...
What makes a Harman Corgi Special?
- All of our dogs have been tested for inherited diseases in Pembroke Welsh Corgis through Embark’s Breeder Testing. This tests for over 200 genetic diseases including breed relevant diseases such as Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), Von Willebrand Disease Type 1 (VWD1), Exercise-Induced Collapse (EIC), X-linked Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (X-SCID) and Progressive Retinal Atrophy (RCD3). Because we utilize this information when planning matings, we know that our puppies will never be at rigk of developing these diseases.
The experiences that a puppy has during its first 16-18 weeks of life greatly impact how they will function in a human world for the rest of their lives.
Few breeders will spend the extra time required but we have seen the benefits first hand and believe that every puppy deserves training during this critical period in their lives to become the best dog that they can become.
What is Puppy Culture?
Puppy Culture was developed by breeder and dog trainer Jane Killion and focuses on giving puppies experiences during the first 16-18 weeks of life to create smarter more stable dogs that can easily fit into human families. We know that as breeders, we have the ability to change the outcome of the puppy’s life during this time by doing the little things at the right time during key developmental stages in the first weeks of a puppy’s life.
- We start on day 3 of life and every puppy is handled and undergoes developmental appropriate training daily until they leave our care and go to their new homes. During the first 9 weeks of life that they are with us we work on
- ENS (early neurological stimulation) which has been shown to create more resilient dogs who are healthier and handle stressful situations better in life.
- manner training
- basic crate training of sleeping in a crate with the doors open
- litter box training which will help with potty training later in life
- leash training
- desensitizing to sounds, textures and touch
- clicker training
- What about the critical weeks of 9-18 once the puppy goes to its new home? We highly recommend that you continue the training that we have started during this critical time. Don’t worry we can point you in the right direction to give you the resources needed to continue this training.
- Our Puppies are healthy! Each puppy is vet checked at 6 to 7 weeks old for general health. Bite, eyes, and joints are also checked at this time.
- Our puppies come up to date on vaccinations and deworming.
- Our puppies carry a 1-year genetic health guarantee against genetic disorders
- All of our puppies come implanted with an AKC Reunite Microchip. Before your puppy leaves, we will help you enroll your puppy with AKC Reunite so you will be contacted immediately if your puppy is found after getting lost.
- Our Puppies are very competitively priced.
- Most of our puppies are sold as pets with limited registration however full registration is available on most litters.
- As a buyer, you not only get a great puppy but you receive lifetime support. We are there to help you if you have questions or problems with your dog even after it’s grown. We offer group video conferencing to help with questions and concerns.
- Harman Corgi owners get access to our restricted Buyers Resources area on our website where you will find videos and information to help you get ready to bring your puppy home, train your puppy, and address problems along the way. Our Harman Corgi Owners Facebook group allows you to connect with other owners and swap ideas. These resources will help you each step along the way to creating a great dog.
- The process of getting a new puppy can be very stressful. We make the process simple and easy.
- We are glad to provide references to confirm that we are legitimate breeders and will work with you to find the right puppy for your family and lifestyle. Feel free to call us, AKC, or our veterinarian at Hansford County Veterinary Hospital in Spearman Texas, and check us out.
- When selecting your puppy we prefer to set up a face time or video chat through Facebook messenger so that you can actually see the puppies in real-time.
