Reserving Your Puppy

Add a loving new member to your family by adopting a loving Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka from Bolonka Blessings. We provide healthy dogs for anyone who is looking for a companion. Once you have decided that a Bolonka is the right one for you, a $500 deposit is required to secure a choice of available puppies. This payment can be made by check, cash, money order, or PayPal™, and is applied to the purchase price of the puppy.


Selecting Your Puppy

Whether you live in the city, a rural area, or suburbs, your Bolonka will fit in anywhere. We want to make sure you have a puppy that fits your family and current lifestyle. Having evaluated each puppy and their personalities, we help you make the right decision for your home and your treasured new family member.

When Can I Take My Puppy Home?

Puppies can be picked up or delivered when they are 8 to 10 weeks of age. At 6 to 7 weeks of age, they are taken to the vet for a complete checkup and their first shots. Your puppy also comes with all of its shot records and veterinarian information. All puppies undergo a worm treatment three times, they will start eating puppy food. Each puppy leaves here with a puppy starter kit. Our puppies are also registerable with the AKC FSS.

Preparing the Home

Getting ready for your new puppy is similar to getting ready for a baby. It is important that everything is safe for the puppy. One method that helps is to get down to the puppy's level and look to see what might attract their little teeth. Keeping the dog safe is also a useful incentive for kids to clean up after themselves. Taking the time to make sure your house and yard is safe and secure for your puppy will help create friendly surroundings for your newest family member.

Checking Around the House

• Keep loose articles off the floor.
• Don't let your puppy get in the habit of chewing shoes, even if they are old.
• Puppies will undoubtedly investigate things; make sure that there is nothing that could be knocked over that could harm your puppy.
• Secure phone wires and electrical cords.
• Have kids put away toys and any small parts or accessories.
• If the item is smaller than your puppy, it should be put away.
• Protect anything made of wood, including table and chair legs, your puppy will know that wood is good for chewing.
• Check every nook and cranny for dangerous items, this includes under and behind furniture and tables, or any other dark place a puppy would like to go.


Checking In the Yard

• Put away garden hoses, tools, and plastic toys.
• Look for anything your puppy can fall into or put in his mouth and secure it somewhere safe.
• Block access to the pool and other hazardous areas.
• Fence off any areas you don't want your puppy to be in and make sure he can't squeeze through the gate.
• Show your dog the pool exits, even dogs that are bred to swim can drown in a pool if they do not know where the steps are.
• Put away chemicals and potential poisons, this includes lawn fertilizers, insecticides, and paint products.
• Check fencing for escape routes.
• Make sure there is nowhere for your puppy to crawl under or get their head to get stuck in.

Car Ride Home

The car ride home may possibly be your puppy's first trip. Before you head home, let your puppy get its bearings and get used to the car before you leave. Covering your lap and seats with a towel keeps your vehicle clean. Even if you are prepared, a puppy can get car sick, so just be prepared for it. Also, make sure you keep the ride quiet and relaxed.

If your puppy whines or cries, don't punish or be overly affectionate with them. Being too affectionate with them will reinforce their problematic behavior. Pet your puppy softly and let the situation work itself out. If your puppy gets too noisy or disruptive, put them on the floor, right at your feet. This area is like a hideaway and the noise from the road may pacify him.

For longer trips, stop for bathroom breaks and stretching. It is important to keep your puppy away from places where other dogs frequently visit, such as pet stores, rest stops, and parks. Until vaccinations are given, your puppy is prone to numerous diseases. If you plan to bring your puppy home in a crate, we make sure the puppy is introduced to the crate a few days before you pick them up.


Flying Home

For people who desire to have their puppy flown to its new home, we gladly assist in making all of the appropriate reservations. This includes your flight confirmation number, times, and information helpline phone number for any questions you may have about the process. We supply a crate, health certificate, and the cost of the ticket, which is typically around $350. Then, you are able to pick your puppy up at either the ticket counter or at the cargo station. You will be advised of the particular airport locations for picking up your puppy after the flight.

Morning

Once you wake up, get out of bed right away and take your puppy outside. Carry the puppy if you believe they may be tempted to go before you get outside. Once they finish, praise them for going outside. If you're patient and understanding, your puppy will learn what you expect of him when it's time to sleep. You both should wake up rested and ready for the day after a few nights together.
