    Question Picking up our puppy tonight... Need some pointers please.

    We are really looking forward to picking up our little 10 weeks old puppy tonight.

    Wanting to get some tips so that we don't overlook any of the paperwork. What do we need to make sure we get from the breeder?

    - Signed health guarantee
    - AKC paperwork (They say they will mail it after Christmas)
    - Puppy contract

    What else should we get? Is it ok to wait on the AKC paperwork? We want to make sure we do everything right the first time.

    I'm from the UK so it may be different but why not just give you the paperwork when you pick it up? I would want a vet check aswell and a item from when the puppy was growing up, favourite toy etc

    I am most concerned about the paperwork issue as they are 4 hours away from us.

    I don't understand why they just don't give you the AKC paper work when you pick your baby up. We always give the AKC paper work, microchip paper work, health guarantee, and puppy packet. Plus I would take him to the vet as soon as possible to have a complete check up. Plus take a blanket with you and try to get mama's scent on it, will help a little. Plus the most important thing is post some pics of that cute little bundle of joy you have, so we all can see your new baby. Be patient with the little guy as he will be in a new place and missing all his litter mates. Crate training is a good thing to do and will help with the house training as well. Here is a link to an excellent article about bringing your new pup home.

    Congrats on your new fur baby. They should have a form at least for you to register your puppy. When we got Bonez they had a paperwork for us to send off. With Bitzie I sent a few texts until she sent us her form. Back home in the uk they would have the pedigree when you picked your pup up.

    a new pup! Congrats..you've gotten great info. On the AKC papers, we were given a "litter registration" and then we could register Jake from that on our own.

    If Breeders are wanting to wait until after Christmas then at least get all the info that is off the litter Registration Papers Like parents name and reg numbers and even the puppys litter no. please post pics of this darling baby as soon as you can

    Ok, I will see what I can get off the litter registration at the least. Just want to make sure that I get what I can while I have leverage since once they have the money I have a feeling it just gets harder. I will post up some pics later tonight and I am sure we will be asking alot of questions so we can get him situated. Thanks everyone for your help.

    don't forget to watch closely around the tree,gifts and light cords.

    I hope all goes well. I am not sure why the papers would take so long. Can you hold some money back until you get them?

    Always with me
