Empyre Great Pyrenees PUPPY PLACEMENT PROCESS:
Our puppies are raised on a structured curriculum to ensure they feel safe in the world they are growing up in. We closely read cues from our puppies as we guide, shape, and mold them based on critical learning periods. We constantly evaluate and adjust to each individual puppies temperament, to strengthen confidence, nerve strength, and startle recovery. We empower puppies to be the best they can be, without enabling them. The short 9 weeks your new puppy spends here with us is a wealth of information!
Puppies are not placed based color, markings, or whether the puppy "picks you". When taking reservations, only sex preference is reserved. We do not begin picks for individual puppies of reserved sex until they are seven weeks old after temperament testing is completed. Those first seven weeks also gives us time to closely watch emerging personalities to further evaluate what type of home would be a good fit. We do not pick your puppy for you, but armed with our information, work together with you to decide which puppy will be best for your family. While we base puppy placement on temperament first and foremost, we do take preferences on markings and appearance into consideration. If more than one puppy is a match temperament wise, you may then pick your puppy on appearance from matched puppies.
Although we evaluate prospective families on a case by case basis, generally there are certain types of homes that would not be good placement for one of our puppies.
BELOW IS A SHORT LIST OF TYPES OF HOMES THAT ARE NOT IDEAL FOR AN EMPYRE GREAT PYRENEES:
-RV/Semi truck companions
-Owners with a desire for same age puppies/littermates to be placed together
-Owners that utilize hands off/"old school" livestock guardian dog rearing and training methods
-Owners that desire a dog to take to the dog park
-A dog that is typically a "social butterfly"
Our goal is to place puppies in their ideal home, that remains their home forever!!
