We do offer puppies directly from Germany with a request on color. German Shepherds come in Black, Gray, Bi-Color, Black-Sable, Black and Tan and Black and Red.

Yes, all of our puppies are vaccinated. We give the first vaccination at 6 weeks of age. My vetenarian recommends to vaccinate the puppies every 3 week (after they turn 6 weeks old) until they are 20 weeks of age. So, the puppy should be vaccinated with 6 weeks, 9weeks, 12 weeks, 15 weeks and 20 weeks. We use Galaxy DA2PPv (Canine Distemper-Adenovirus Type 2- Paraninfluenza-Parvovirus Vaccine / 7 way)

Questions about the Puppies documents

 

Is the paperwork coming with the puppy?

No, we send the papers out seperatly via Federal Express. We believe it is safer to handle the puppy and paperwork seperatly. We include a couple of days dogfood to the puppies crate, a colar and a small leash.

 

What type of paperwork does the puppy come with?

All of our puppies are fully AKC registered. Every puppy has his own little folder with copies of pedigree's of their parents, DNA of parents if available, pictures, copies of hip certification, vaccination records of the littler, literature of the vaccine and deworming used on the puppies, a little help sheet of how to intergrete your new puppy into you home and interduce him or her to family members or other animals in your home and copy of the contract.

 

What can I name my dog?

We asked that all of our puppies carry our kennel name "VOM PEGASUS". We follow the German way of going with the A, B, C...... . The very first littler of any kennel in Germany starts with an A, the second with a B, the third with a C, and so on. We asked the puppy buyers to give the puppy a name with the letter given to them.

 

Questions about my Puppies training

 

Can you help us train our puppy?

Yes, we offer many training program. We offer obedience classes at our facility, in-home training programs in your home and environment, as well as board and train programs for anybody to far away and would like us to maintain the well being of their now beloved dog.

 

Questions about feeding, nutruition and exercising the puppy

 

What type of dogfood should we use.

All of our puppies are maintained on Royal Canin Puppy food. Royal Canin is a very high quality dog food, with all the nutrition a puppy needs. The small dry pellets are should be soften with warm water for 5 minutes before the puppy eats. Most of the time we add a tablespoon of cotage cheese to help with ear development. Always have water available for your puppy!

 

What do you think about Pet Tabs vitamins?

Excellent idea.

 

Do you have any other suggestion on feeding?

Yes. We allways put 2 table spoons of natural yogurt into the puppies food, as well as some cooked groundbeef. We suggest to feed your puppy at least twice a day. If you like you can switch your puppy to adult dog food with about 6 month of age.

 

Can I take my puppy on a 2 mile run?

No. Your puppies bones are just starting to devolop. You do not want to overexercise your puppy at a very young age. Puppies need to sleep, eat, play. They do not need to stress they joints and muscle. To much exercise in an early stage can actually be hurtfull to your puppy. You should avoid letting your puppy jump down stairs or high objects. Avoid playing on step hills and do not start to bike your puppy until all the muscle and bones are fully devolop and strong. 

 

What exercise is good for my puppy?

Take your puppy on walks. Let him/her play with children or other dogs his age, but make sure nobody steps on your puppy or dominates your puppy. Take your puppy to Puppy classes designed for puppies, but do not exceed that session longer than 1/2 hour. Build a good foundation for a happy obedience with short, but good sessions. If you like to teach your puppy to track, find a group like www.poduim.org which teaches Puppy Schutzhund Classes. Schutzhund has many stages and the different phases are taught seperatly. Keep the mind of your puppy going by offering him/her mental workout, like tracking and obedience. Mental workout is as important than physical workout and they should balance out.
