Pricing and Condition of Sale

 

If you have questions about a Holden Point puppy please email or call.  I am more than happy to speak with you about our dogs!

Reserving a Puppy

We will accept deposits on puppies and availability will be determined by the order in which they are received.  The deposit order does not determine a picking order.

After speaking to you and learning about what you are looking for, together we will identify the pup that is best suited for you.  For example, we would not want to send the boldest most independent puppy to a first time handler.  Or, if someone is looking for a pup to do a lot of duck hunting we would look to pair a dog with a more dense coat.

A $200.00 deposit is required.

Registration

All Holden Point litters will be registered with AKC and NAVHDA, with limited registration in both organizations.

Holden Point Kennel will be happy to revoke the limited status and provide full breeding registration after you meet certain performance and health clearances with your dog.

The requirements for releasing full breeding registration are to meet one of the Hunting Ability requirements and all of the Health requirements.
