Red Fern Companions Frequently Asked Questions

We are happy to address your questions at any time here at Red Fern, and have done our best to address some common ones here. If you are not able to find the answer to your question, please Contact Us and we will be more than happy to answer any question you have.

Q: What should I feed my puppy? 

A: Here at Red Fern Companions, we use Loyall Puppy until the puppies are at least  one year old. We also use and highly recommend the NuVet vitamins to help insure your puppy stays healthy and happy.

Q: What shots has my puppy had and which ones do they need?

A: Our puppies follow our veterinarian’s recommended vaccination and deworming schedule. You will receive his vaccination record at the time you pick up your puppy. Then your vet is able to see all the history of your puppy and can continue on schedule.

Q: How much of a deposit do you require? Does that go towards the final purchase price? Is it refundable?

A: We ask for a $500 non-refundable deposit that goes towards the final price of your puppy. If for some reason, you are unable to get a puppy but you have made a deposit, we will keep you on our waiting list and you will have 1 year to buy a future puppy.

Q: Do you offer puppy training?

A: We offer 3 levels of training on our puppies. Level 1 training goes from 8-12 weeks, Level 2 training is from 3-5 months, and Level 3 training is from 5-8 months. For details on each level, click HERE.

Q: When can I pick up my puppy?

A: To insure maximum health physically and mentally for your puppy, we raise them until they are 8 weeks old, at which time they are able to go to their new homes.

Q: When can I choose the puppy I want to buy?

A: Because of the high demand of interest in Red Fern Companion puppies, we establish a waiting list for current and future litters. If you are interested in a puppy in an upcoming litter, we place you on our Tentative Wait List. After pregnancy has been confirmed, we accept deposits for that upcoming litter. As soon as your deposit is received, you move onto our Waiting List. Therefore, those who place a deposit first will receive first choice in puppies. When puppies are 5 weeks old, we begin puppy selection. For those out of the area, we are happy to send pictures, videos, and FaceTime for you to make your choice.

Q: What do I get when I buy a puppy from Red Fern Companions?

A: Along with a top-of-the-line bred English Golden Retriever, versatile enough to become a service animal, show dog, or loyal family companion, you go home with a puppy packet containing the puppy’s AKC limited registration application, microchip registration, vaccination and worming schedule, a favorite toy, and a 2 year health guarantee, (4 year health guarantee if you use Nuvet vitamins.) Additional training is also an option.
