TRAINED SERVICE DOGS AND THERAPY DOGS AND FAMILY PETS:
“Vk Varian’s Precious Pearl” SOLD
Pearl is a gorgeous 10 month old puppy out of Walt and Polka Dot. She is one of two “gems” I kept from Walt and Dot for prospective breeding purposes. Pearl has a sweet, loving, playful yet calm personality. She gets along great with every dog, cat and person she meets! She is exceptionally well trained in all obedience: Comes to her name, sit, stay, down, down stay, wait at gates, heels nicely on leash even with distractions, no jumping, and MORE! Pearl’s genetic exams all came back with flying colors, including her heart and elbows, but her hips just aren’t quite good enough to meet my standards as a breeding mom. (I have VERY high standards.) She will however make a fantastic family pet, or would make a great therapy or emotional support dog! She is too young to know if she would make “service dog” level, but if she doesn’t find a furever home in the next few months…she may be! (The longer she is here, the more training she receives, the more expensive she will be obviously! The current price is where she is at NOW.) Pearl will be spayed before she leaves here, and is UTD on all vaccines, wormers, flea and tick meds, etc. You will receive an (approximately) 5 hour training day with her purchase. If you are interested in an AMAZING older puppy, who is still young enough to enjoy a full life with, but past the crazy puppy stage, this is YOUR girl! Please call for more info, to schedule a visit, or put down a deposit.
***Typically, Trained ESA’s and family pets start at $6000, Therapy dogs start at $7500, and service dogs start at $9000. Discounts if the dog is older than 4.)
*** All dogs are fully vaccinated, dewormed, spayed or neutered (unless being sold as a breeding dog.) They come freshly bathed (with recent flea/tick preventative) and trained with a video of their skills and personal training sessions to help you learn their commands (Not all dogs have videos done yet). They also come with starter food, collar and leash, e-collar for off leash roaming, and more!****
**** Trained dogs available are often ones I have adopted from private individuals or shelters, or they were dogs that were part of my breeding program that are retiring or didn’t meet my strict breeding standards for various reasons.
