Viewing and picking up animals at our home. 

We prefer that our animals be picked up in person at our home in Niagara Falls, ON by the purchaser, however we know that this is not always possible and sometimes people need to choose shipping or delivery to get their pet to them.

We do welcome visits to our home in Niagara Falls, Ontario, from people who are serious about viewing and purchasing one of our animals. When we schedule appointments we give precedence to people who have already left a deposit on a pet.

Please respect the fact that we are a private home and that we are not open to the public. We house our breeding animals in separate breeding facilities in our other home and only ever show animals that are ready to leave.

We do not do tours! Like most people, we lead very busy lives and whenever we invite anyone to our home, we must rearrange our schedule and we do not have time to entertain spectators. Disrupting our day and rearranging our schedule to accommodate people who are not truly serious about purchasing or learning about the animals we raise, causes far too much commotion for our pets and for ourselves.

We are certainly not the ideal place to come to and have a "Test Run" to see if you are going to be allergic to a specific pet. We have other pets in our home and if you are allergic you will likely react.

Many breeders require what they often refer to as a non-refundable educational fee when scheduling appointments with people wanting to view their pets. Then they deduct the fee when finalizing the purchase. They do this because it assures them that they are not wasting their time, juggling their schedule, waiting for people who fail to show up or are just there to play with a pet.  We do not usually request this fee but at certain times of the year we need to be fair to everyone and have little choice but to implement this policy. Although we have entertained the idea of making this a standard policy year-round as of yet, we have not started to implement such a policy.

If you choose not to send a deposit because you would rather wait until you have picked out the animal in person, you are free to do so and are certainly welcome to visit. Before we schedule your appointment, we need to know which animals that interest you the most. That way if they don’t sell by the time of your visit, we can have those animals and a few similar animals available for your viewing. Please be aware that just because you have scheduled an appointment does not mean the animal is on hold. If the animal sells and we don’t have one that is similar, if timeline allows, we will call you to cancel the appointment. Keep in mind that we often have appointments on the same day . Sometimes they are booked back to back and many of our customers drive several hours to get here so we need to be mindful and respect their appointment.

It is best if we have a contact number to contact you just in case we need to reschedule or cancel the appointment. This seldom happens but we want to be respectful. Especially if you have chosen not to leave a deposit and the animal you are interested in sells while you are already on your way.
