Pricing Policy

This is a topic that many people have difficulty talking about. We are very open to discussion on why we price our dogs the way we do, so if you after reading this have questions please email and ask.

 Most of our pups are priced at $2800 - $4300 USD. Pricing can vary from litter to litter and from puppy to puppy this is because we base price on Parents, Health testing parents have had, Titles Parents have (If any), Pedigree, and Conformation of the puppy.

 We have invested and continue to invest a great deal of time and money into our dogs and our own education on dog genetics. Our goals are to breed better with each generation. To do that we believe you have to have a healthy dog to start with. We have all our dogs tested by specialist and O.F.A. Board certified veterinarians for Genetic eye issues (annually on all dogs), Patellas, and Heart. Then we test their D.N.A via Embark for 165+ known genetic diseases. Embark also tests Coat Color, how inbred the dog is, and how far back to a wolf they are, we find most Chihuahuas are from Asiatic Wolves 15,000 years ago.

We use this information to assist us in making good breeding choices, to produce a healthier next generation. We do this in software specially designed to assist with the mathematical formulas involved. We have spent time and money educating via seminars, and courses in Canine Reproduction, Basic Genetics, to Advanced Genetics, Animal management, AKC Breeding Basics, Understanding Inbreeding, Coefficient of Inbreeding Boot Camp, Useful Genetics, Genetics of Continuous Traits, Genetics for Preservation Breeders.

Our goal is you will save money over the lifetime of your chihuahua, with as few veterinarian bills as possible. We do this with using science, by having awesome owners keep in touch with us, communicating any issues that do arise so we can work with the geneticists and veterinarians to solve the issue.

We show and do performance trials with many of our adults and keeper pups in AKC and UKC dog shows. Many obtain their titles. This requires many hours of training, socializing, and traveling. All of that also costs money. Even pups that are not staying here start the basics in training at 3-4 weeks of age with pee mat housebreaking and interacting with the other Chihuahuas. They start weaning and eating on their own starting usually around 4 weeks but we let them nurse till 7 weeks if they want, and the mom is willing.

Many times, when pups leave us they have been trained to sleep in a crate, or exercise pen, use a litterbox, use a potty mat, and depending on the time of year outside trained. They have been socialized, 2-3 DAPP vaccinations, microchipped, dewormed fully, and vet checked and much more.
