PUPPY PICK-UP DAY – GOING HOME

When the day comes to collect your new puppy, it is of course a great day not only for you but also for your puppy; a brand new chapter of a new life together. There are many things that you need to be aware of for this new lifestyle to be as joyful and as healthy as possible. To that end, we need to spend a couple of hours together so you are as prepared as possible. It is also a celebration so we always toast this event with champagne!

On collection day we will cover these topics:

Of course we have taken care of all the practical details before the puppy leaves us:

  • Registration of the pedigree with the Leavitt Bulldog Association (LBA), the head organisation;
  • Registration on the Danish dog register (legal requirement);
  • Vet checks, chipped, EU passport, 2 x de-worming;
  • Contract with a 2 year guarantee against hereditary diseases.

Vaccination within the first 8 weeks (remember that the puppy will need 2 further vaccinations against rabies – see video).

Practical info – Collecting your new puppy (in Denmark)

  • Everyone gets their new puppy at the same time, it’s always on a Friday after the puppy has turned a full eight weeks in age and from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (2 hours).
  • It’s a good idea to bring another person rather than come alone so there is one staying with the puppy while we go through the hand-over information.
  • Payment of the balance outstanding shall be made no later than the Friday before the pick-up (1 week before) when we need to register the puppy with the Danish dog register in your name.  (The registration is similar to that of registering your car in that your name lists you as the owner (and your possession if you will) and this coincides with the approval of a veterinary examination. The registration confirmation is then sent directly to your address.

Practical info – Collecting your new puppy (outside Denmark)

  • Most EU countries stipulate that puppies should not be imported when they are less than 15 weeks old, i.e. the puppy needs to remain in Denmark for a further seven weeks. These expenses need to be covered by the buyer (including the further anti-rabies vaccinations, food, etc.)
  • Payment of the balance shall be made no later than when the puppy is seven weeks, i.e. in accordance with Danish law.
