Holistic Kennel – Are you a match for a Holistically Raised Puppy?
Reading this entire post could turn into “Something Wonderful”.
It’s imperative that we get to know one another. We ask that you take time to read this post in its entirety before submitting a contact form. We are focused on finding care givers for our dogs that align with our Holistic Kennel processes.
We want to help you understand what being a Holistic Kennel means.
Goldnote is unique in our approach. We focus on being a holistic kennel. That means that we feed all of our dogs and puppies a nutritionally complete raw diet. We vaccinate for the core vaccines only, and do not use chemical flea, tick, and heartworm preventatives. We ask families of our dogs and puppies to make informed decisions regarding vaccines, flea, tick, and heartworm pharmaceuticals for their dogs and puppies, based on their geographic location, potential risks, and lifestyle.
Our sales contract requires that our females not be spayed until 10 months of age, or later, and that males not be neutered until 18 months of age, or later.
Goldnote only places puppies in homes that are committed to feeding a species appropriate, nutritionally complete, raw food diet. We do not give “permission” to feed kibble to our puppies, or later adult dogs.
We are very proud of the fact that our newest puppies are third and fourth generation raw fed puppies!
Details Matter – We have a Certified Canine Nutrition Specialist!
Feeding a properly balanced, nutritionally complete raw diet can involve a significant learning curve for many people. Our Canine Nutrition Consultant, Yvonne King, has many excellent articles on her website about feeding a raw diet. Yvonne has held workshops at Goldnote about raw feeding, but this has been paused temporarily due to Covid-19 restrictions. We are eager for these to resume once again as it becomes safe to do so.
Be prepared – We give reading assignments!
If you feel that you align with our holistic dog care priorities and would like to proceed with us, we ask you to please spend some time reading the following articles from Yvonne’s website:
Now that you’re prepared – We give written assignments too!
To be considered as a home for one of our holistically raised puppies we require that you please respond with a few paragraphs about yourself in your contact form.
We will need to know about your home and lifestyle, along with exactly how your holistic health care beliefs would benefit a new puppy that might join your home.
Did I pass?
Once your paragraph is submitted, and we see that we are the breeder for you to work with, we will respond with a thank you message, and a detailed information package about us.
Getting to know you! Getting to know all about… our Holistic Kennel!
Our detailed Holistic Kennel email will hopefully make you “Whistle a Happy Tune”. We will do our best not to create “A Puzzlement” because it will include the puppy cost, guarantee details, parents health clearance details, litter information and timelines, how we choose a puppy for you, food costs, and so much more!
What do you say? “Shall We Dance?”
If you feel you align with our Holistic Kennel approach, we invite you to send a contact form. Go ahead! Lets us know you’re “Something Wonderful” about to happen for one of our puppies.
