Frequently Asked Questions
What do you feed your dogs?
-Our dogs are fed a high protein diet. We buy a variety of high protein dog food depending on if the dogs like it, and the content in the food. Some brands that we often buy are Diamond: High Energy, Victor: Professional, and Country Lane: High Protein.
Where are you located?
-We are a small family breeder located in Centerville, Iowa.
Do you offer delivery?
-Yes! We will deliver within a semi-reasonable distance, meet halfway, or ship via a puppy safe airline for a transportation fee. Our main goal is to ensure that the puppy 's travel is as safe as possible.
How much is a puppy?
-Our puppy price starts at $1,500. We spend a lot of time and money researching genetics for our dogs and making sure that our dogs are of healthy genetic lines. We use top of the line Pomskies for our breeding program. Our goal is to find dedicated owners who are looking to bring home an amazing lifelong companion. Because of this, we price our puppies accordingly. If you find a puppy for less than $1,000, it is very possible that it is a scam, or the puppy is from a poor genetic background.
How big will my puppy get?
-We cannot guarantee size. With the Pomsky breed, there is always the potential for a genetic throwback. In this case, puppies could potentially be well over or under our expected weight range. We like to offer a projected range that we have from the parents, but that is not a guarantee that the puppy will remain under a certain weight.
Do Pomskies shed?
-Yes! Pomskies typically shed somewhere between a typical husky and pomeranian coat. Pomskies do blow their coats a few times a year, but this can be maintained with regular brushing. You can also take them to a groomer to have their coats blown out or a sanitary trim, but they should never be shaved under any circumstance.
Can we physically come visit to meet our potential Pomsky?
-Yes! Send us a message and we would be happy to arrange a meeting or a video call if you cannot physically come visit. We want to be as accommodating as possible to a future LJ Kennel family member!
Where do the puppies stay before they go home?
-Our puppies split their time in the whelping kennel and in house with us. They are eventually put in our whelping kennel for periods of time if it is comfortable outside, but they continue to be in the house with everyone for socialization and training purposes. They are also able to be outside in our fenced-in yard when they are old enough to play outside with the other dogs after vaccinations.
What kind of socialization or training do we do with puppies before they go home?
-We try our best to expose our puppies to everything they will face later in life! They are taken on car rides, exposed to our pack once old enough and vaccinated, and have a lot of interaction with people and children of all ages. As soon as the puppies are old enough, we start them on outside potty training. We try to start building a training foundation for our future owners as soon as we can.
Do you offer deposits to hold puppies if they are too young to go home or on an upcoming litter?
-Yes! We offer the option of a non-refundable deposit to anyone who would like to reserve a puppy. The deposit we require is $500, and that will come out of the overall price of the dog. For example: if the puppy you want to place a deposit on is $1,500, once the deposit is placed you will only have to pay the remaining balance of $1,000. We also offer the option to put a deposit down on an upcoming litter. Send us a message to let us know if you wish to do this! Deposits on future litters can also roll onto the following litters if you do not want a puppy from that particular litter once they are born.
