MAVERICK COLLIE PUPPIES

uncompromising breed Conservation

Each Collie puppy at Maverick Collies is purposefully bred with a focus on health, temperament, and conformation, ensuring that they possess the true essence of this remarkable breed. From the moment they are born, our puppies receive the utmost care and attention, ensuring their physical and emotional well-being. We take great pride in raising these precious puppies, and we are excited to help them find loving homes where they will bring joy and companionship for years to come.


FINDING YOUR COLLIE BREEDER

THE NECESSARY FIRST STEP

To ensure your success, it is crucial to shift your focus from simply “looking for a puppy” to actively “looking for a breeder.” Collaborating with a reputable breeder will guide you toward discovering the ideal puppy for you. A reputable breeder prioritizes the betterment of the breed over profit and does not view puppies as mere commodities. Their purpose is to enhance the breed through thoughtfully planned litters. By aligning yourself with breeders who uphold this philosophy, you will significantly increase your chances of finding a superior-quality puppy.


HOW MUCH DOES a MAVERICK COLLIE PUPPY COST?

Each Maverick Collie puppy is the result of a meticulously planned breeding aimed at preserving and advancing the breed’s qualities. Our breeding program prioritizes the selection of exceptional Collies, comprehensive health testing, early socialization, and providing a nurturing environment for the puppies. By investing in a Maverick Collie puppy, you are not only bringing home a companion but also contributing to the preservation and advancement of the breed. The current price of $2,000 reflects the dedication, expertise, and resources invested in producing top-quality Collies that excel in health, temperament, and conformation.


OUR PUPPY RESERVATION LIST

The first step in acquiring a Maverick Collie puppy is to contact us to obtain our Puppy Application. Completing this application is a prerequisite for consideration as a potential home for one of our puppies. Upon approval, we will collect a $300 deposit to secure your place on our reservation list.  Our reservation list is ordered by the dates deposits are received. If a puppy is not identified as compatible in the prospective litter, the deposit may be refunded, or you may apply it to our next litter.

OUR PUPPY MATCHING PROCESS

Matching puppies to specific homes is a complex process due to the varying sizes, colors, and genders of each litter. We remind prospective owners that being flexible with their preferences can increase their chances of getting a puppy sooner. Each breeding aims to enhance particular traits in our bloodline, so with each litter, we usually keep one or two puppies that we believe have the particular set of virtues needed for our program. The remaining puppies are matched with families based on their application criteria, giving priority to those who placed their deposits first. We strive to find the best fit for each family, which is why puppy homes are typically not finalized until puppies are 9 weeks of age or older.


PUPPY CARE

Before they join their new families, our puppies undergo the following care regimen:

VACCINATIONS & WORMING

The appropriate vaccinations are administered to your puppy based on their age prior to departure from our kennel. In addition, our puppies undergo routine preventative deworming treatments to prevent any parasitic infections. A comprehensive vaccination and worming history will be furnished to you.

puppy socialization

Our puppies are whelped and nurtured in our home, where they receive constant care and handling. Using the Puppy Culture program, they are exposed to various noises, experiences, surfaces, toys, car rides, other pets, and children. This thorough approach to raising puppies focuses on maximizing their physical and mental development. Grounded in the latest scientific research, the program equips puppies with diverse early learning experiences and socialization opportunities.

housebreaking

From the young age of four weeks, our puppies are trained to relieve themselves in litter boxes filled with pine pellets and wood shavings rather than their living spaces. At six weeks of age, they are introduced to a doggie door, which allows free access to potty outside. This early housetraining sets a solid foundation, making it easier for them to adapt to housebreaking routines in their new homes. Collie puppies are exceptionally intelligent and quickly become accustomed to schedules and the principles of housebreaking.

CRATE TRAINING

Our puppies are introduced to daily crate training after outdoor play at six weeks of age. This helps them become comfortable and secure in their own space. During crate time, they relax with chew bones and soothing classical music, creating a calm and positive environment. This routine not only aids in their development but also makes the transition to their new homes smoother and less stressful.

veterinarian WELLNESS EXAM

Each of our puppies undergoes a thorough examination by a veterinarian before heading to their new homes. Our aim is to ensure that our puppies leave for their new families as happy and healthy companions!

Ophthalmology exam

Our puppies undergo eye examinations at 8 weeks of age by a Board Certified Canine Ophthalmologist. With your puppy, you will receive an eye check certificate. The Collies in our breeding program have excellent vision, are Collie Eye Anomaly (CEA) mild, and are free of Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA), as confirmed by genetic testing.

MICROCHIP REGISTRATION

Our puppies are microchipped before their eye checks at 8 weeks old, with the microchip registered to Maverick Collies through AKC Reunite. To transfer ownership, please visit www.AKCREUNITE.org and select PET TRANSFER to update the microchip information. As an important safety measure, we recommend listing us as the second contact on your microchip registration.

AKC REGISTRATION

The purchase price of your puppy includes prepaid AKC registration. Just provide us with your preferred name for your puppy, and we will take care of the registration process for you. Companion puppies from our kennel are sold with a spay/neuter contract and AKC Limited Registration per the Collie Club of America Code of Conduct. By following these guidelines, we uphold the standards of responsible pet ownership and contribute to the overall health and quality of the Collie breed.
