Congratulations on your recent adoption of a BarMor puppy! You have just joined a very exclusive family, and we welcome you to it!
Below you will find some of our most frequently asked questions and the answers to them, as well as some useful information that will help you welcome your newest family member home!
Q: What is your address?
A: Our address is 2461 State Route 14, Geneva, NY 14456. We are exactly 2.6 miles south of exit 42 of the NYS Thruway. Google maps can be a little odd on occasion, and will place us on the other side of town. If you see the Geneva Country Club and are next to Seneca Lake, you are at the wrong address!
Q: How do we pay our balance?
A: We require payments to be made in cash only at the time of pickup or delivery. If you are unsure what your balance is, please contact us. If you are having your puppy delivered, you can give the balance directly to our driver.
Q: What will come with our puppy at pickup?
A: We have a goody bag that includes the puppies medical records, a toy and blanket that have been placed with the litter for a short amount of time, and have the scent of the litter in them. This will ease the transition away from your puppies brothers and sisters. There is also a book with training tips and information, a small bag of food, information on how to register your puppies ID chip, and a stuffed Lambchop "Lamby" toy. You will find your health certificate, fecal test results, and information on registration of your ID chip in an envelope. For additional information on what you may need, please refer to the links posted on your puppy litter page, just below the litter information.
Q: What should we bring with us?
A: We highly suggest bringing a small sized travel crate to transport your new puppy in. In most cases, the puppy will fall asleep shortly after departure and sleep the entire way home. We do not suggest leaving your puppy loose in your car as the chances of becoming car sick will increase, and could possibly lead to serious issues by the end of your trip. If you wish to get a collar, we suggest a small cat collar as most small dog collars are too large for a 7 week old puppy. You may also want to have some water available for the pup on the trip home if they become thirsty, but please, no food or snacks during the trip.
Q: What kind of food should we buy?
A: While we don't dictate what kind of food you should feed your pup, We have used Pro-Plan Sport 30/20 for over 20 years. In that time we have had zero issues with our dogs from it, and they do like it. This is a full life cycle food, so your puppy has already started eating it. If you do choose to change foods, we do include a cup of food that we suggest mixing with the new food so they won't get a sour stomach that often occurs when switching foods. If you choose to stick with the Pro Plan, it can be found at most farm and garden stores. If you cannot find it locally, we order ours through Chewy.com and usually get it within a day or two after ordering.
Q: What medications will my puppy need?
A: When your puppy leaves, it will have had it's first 5 way shot (canine distemper, adenovirus, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus), and multiple doses of Fenbendozole and Toltrazuril as a preventative measures against parasites. When your puppy leaves, it will need two 5 way booster shots (done at 10 and 14 weeks) and a rabies shot (14 weeks). Past that, you will only need booster shots at regular vet checkups.
Q: When will I need to take my puppy to the vet for the first time?
A: Per our health agreement, your puppy must be examined by your veterinarian within 72 hours of leaving us. While we have had a vet check done prior to departure, this is done to familiarize your vet with your new puppy, as well as to confirm our vets finding during our exams. We have seen an increasing amount of vets giving 5 way shots at the required checkup after pickup. Please do not allow your vet to give this shot as they are only a week removed from having their first one. Stacking medications at such a short interval can be dangerous to your new puppies health.
