A

All of our puppies have BAER hearing assessments by a neurologist, CAER eye exams by an opthamologist, and cardiac auscultations by a cardiologist — all specialists are board certified in their fields and results of their exams are provided to families.

Q
When can I come for a visit?
A

When you come to pick up your puppy.  At that time we will be delighted to introduce you to any of our dogs including the Dam (Mother) and Sire (Dad)(if on site).  We do not do visits while we have puppies that have not been vaccinated.

Q
Do you remove dew claws?
A

As of June, 2022 we no longer remove dewclaws — the weight baseline for puppies is significantly improved when dewclaws are left intact.

Q
When do the puppies leave for their new home?
A

Our puppies stay here until they are at least 8 weeks old.  They will have their first  set of vaccinations from our veterinarian.

Q
Where do your dogs live?
A

Our dogs are our house pets, they live with us in our home. Our puppies are born in our bedroom, where they spend the first four weeks of their life. Our dogs do not live in a kennel building but they are kennel trained and sleep in their kennels.

Q
What food do you feed?
A

We feed Purina ProPlan Sport 30/20 Salmon from weaning and throughout our dogs lives — it is an ”all life stages” food that is scientifically backed to be appropriate for dogs that need high calories. In addition to ProPlan we supplement with SMACK dehydrated raw.

Q
What vaccines do Comar puppies come with?
A

Our puppies are dewormed with Strongid at 2,4,6 and 8 weeks. They receive their first of three DHPP at 7 weeks old and then should receive a booster shot every 4 weeks thereafter until three doses have been administered. At the (minimim) age of 16 weeks old they should receive their Rabies vaccine.

Q
We live internationally, will you ship your puppies?
A

Our puppies must be picked up from our home in Haliburton. We do not ship puppies alone. In special circumstances arrangements can be made for us to travel to you to deliver your puppy.

Q
Are you a member of the Canadian Kennel Club?
A

Yes! I am a member in good standing of the Canadian Kennel Club, Comar is a registered kennel prefix with the CKC and I am the President of the newly founded Haliburton Kennel Club.
