Question: Can I visit the puppies to decide if I want to buy a French Bulldog puppy?

Answer:


*** Video's are always available upon request. ***

Puppies can be met in person from after 8 weeks old, if any puppies are still available.
Please note puppies are ready to leave at 8 weeks old. As we have limited time between other jobs/obligations to make appointments for viewing for potential homes for "ready to leave" puppies we ask that you please consider first that if you are not ready for a puppy yet / at the time of viewing then please do not ask to view puppies that are "ready to leave" so that this time can be spent with actual potential homes for the ready to leave puppies. Please contact us to let us know approx. timing of year that you would be looking at getting a puppy and we can let you know if we may have more puppies ready at around that time for you to view, thanks.   

(Waiting List is available at any stage of the year for a puppy later in the year, please see "puppy info & pricing page" for more details.)


Please read below to understand why viewing is only available after 8 weeks old... Thanks


Puppies do not receive their first vaccination until they are 6 weeks old, prior to receiving their first vaccination we strictly do not allow anyone to come into contact with the puppies or the puppies environment to make sure our puppies are protected from deadly diseases which they have absolutely no immunity to prior to receiving their vaccinations (deadly infectious diseases can be transmitted via human contact). Each vaccination a puppy receives takes 2 weeks to take its full affect, meaning a puppy is not fully covered by its vaccinations for the diseases vaccinations protect against until 2 weeks after its 3rd and final puppy vaccination that it receives at 14 weeks of age. (This means even once you take your puppy home we strongly recommend not taking your puppy out and about until 2 weeks after its final puppy vaccination, this includes not having play dates with other peoples puppies/dogs if you cannot guarantee yourself that their puppy/dog is up to date with its vaccinations.)

This means that puppies will have the start of their immunity from 8 weeks old which is when they are ready to leave here anyways. So prior to 8 weeks old we strictly do not allow anyone to come into contact with our puppies on the chance that they might want to buy a puppy as our puppies health is our number one priority, this includes the health of puppies that have already been reserved by others but are still in our care until their pick up dates. (As our puppies are around each other up until the day they leave for their forever homes, so risking ones health means risking the entire litters health which we will strictly will not do no matter the circumstance, sorry).

For this reason we regularly update photo's and take video's of our puppies as they are growing, for those who have paid a booking fee to go on a waiting list for a puppy, have reserved a puppy or for puppies still available for potential owners to view on our website.


*** Puppies require a booking fee to be paid to reserve them, as no puppy will be put on hold or considered reserved/ sold without a booking fee having being paid to know the puppy is definitely spoken for. Their price remainder is not due until pick up if being picked up in person. Puppies going via flights must be paid in full prior to their flight being booked.


Puppies that are still available after 8 weeks of age are available for viewing by appointment on days/ time that I do not already have other obligations. They are also available to be able to be picked up/ taken home with you at the time of viewing with puppies full price to be paid for at pick up, receipt provided.




Question: Is Puppies PRICE Negotiable?

No. The prices of our puppies are set prices, they are Non-Negotiable. You will be asked to confirm puppies pricing prior to making any payments to reserve a puppy to ensure that you are committed to the sale as our booking fee is non-refundable.

We may give someone buying two puppies at the same time or a return customer that already owns one of our French Bulldogs a 2nd puppy bonus, this may be a discount or some sort of item/s that you will require for your puppy/puppies.

Most people do not realise the costs involved in breeding when done Responsibly and Ethically will mean that you have a lot of costs to cover to be able to continue doing what we love.

I will explain just some of our costs below, though there is a much larger list of costs than what I can explain here. Costs of supplies and services we require as breeders also change depending on what is available at the time and the current pricing of things.

Puppies come to you:
- DNA Tested Full Breed Profile (which tests for Genetic Diseases of this Breed and colour/colour carrying) 
- Pedigree Papered
- Microchipped 
- Up to date Vaccinated
- Wormed Regularly from 2 weeks of age
- Flea Free
- High Quality Food from 3 weeks old

All of our Puppies and Adult dogs are cared for with the highest quality of care. We replace Toys, Bedding, other accessories often as needed when they become worn out. We also have to buy new blankets, towels, cleaning products, heat mats, whelping boxes, hand rearing equipment, humidity cribs, oxygen ventilators and other equipment required in the rearing of French Bulldog Puppies as needed. Petrol costs for running around for collection of items required for our dogs and puppies and vet visits. Electricity for washing, cleaning and climate temperature control air-conditioning/heating of humidity crib and heated whelping box.


To produce a litter 
You require to track the mothers heat cycle with multiple blood tests to know the exact days that she is ready for ovulation. (This also helps to pin point a due date to make sure the C-section date is correct and puppies are not being delivered to early or that the mother is going into premature labour.) Each blood test costs a fee, it could take 4 blood test or it can take many more depending on the individual female and the individual heat cycle. (Please note the price of any tests/procedures price will depend where they have been done, prices can change dramatically depending where and what is available to the breeder.)

A lot of French Bulldogs require Artificial insemination/ assisted insemination. (There is few that can do natural mating). Once the results come back that the mother is just about to ovulate then you require to pay a fee for semen retrieval from the Father and you have to pay a fee for insemination into the mother. If you are doing an assisted insemination you will be required to do this process and pay the same fees for 3 days in a row. If you require another form of insemination into the mother the fee amount changes depending on the technique used. If you do not own the Father in which who's semen you will be using than you will be required to pay a fee to purchase his semen from his owner, this fee will be different for every stud available depending on his DNA, Bloodlines, etc it could be anywhere between $2000 to over $10,000/$15,000 stud fee depending on the male you choose to use. If all goes well than your female may fall pregnant, but there is no guarantee and you may have to start the whole process over again in her next heat cycle, with still having to have paid all of the above costs and no puppies at the end of it to recuperate any of the costs.

If your female is lucky enough to fall pregnant this can be confirmed at 4 weeks of pregnancy via ultrasound. At this stage your female may require more blood tests to make sure she is able to support the pregnancy through to the end.
Once your female reaches the last week of her pregnancy she will require more blood tests again and often to check her levels to see when the babies will be ready to be delivered. Each blood test costing a fee, this could be 7+ blood tests. Also she may require a few ultrasounds in this time as well, each time costing a fee.
Once all confirmed that the puppies are ready to be born then the mother will require a C-section caesarean to deliver her puppies. Depending whether it be with in vet hours or out of hours will affect the cost. A C-section for a dog usually starts at around $1500 with in hours and depending on what vet surgery is available to you and that there is no complications.
 
From before the time of conception to the time of delivery, you already have a massive amount of money to recuperate even prior to the costs of raising the puppies including DNA testing them which is approx. $200 per puppy for a full breed profile DNA test. Let alone the on going costs of the Adult dogs to be able to even have these puppies, without them there would be no puppies.

Hand raising, some times you will have mum's that for some reason are unable to take care of their babies so that's when we need to step in and to hand raise these babies. Hand raising puppies cost all the equipment to do so, colostrum replacement and milk replacement (Which are not cheap when you are buying the highest quality ones that you know will actually work to make sure these babies grow and live). Hand raising is 2 hourly day and night, taking up to 20 minutes per puppy to feed and toilet. (That means we survive on almost no sleep if we are hand raising more then 1 puppy, by the time we finish hand feeding 3 puppies, we then only have about an hour to squeeze in sleep or to do our other daily obligations and work before we must feed the puppies again).

The amount of hours during the day and night that we work, doing daily care for our dogs and puppies, responding to puppy enquiries, having trips to the vets for microchipping, vaccinations, inseminations, blood tests, ultrasounds, surgeries etc, we do not get paid for these long hours on a daily basis, 7 days a week all year around.

All of our adult French Bulldogs and puppies receive the highest quality of care available. Our French Bulldogs never go without and we do not cut any corners when it comes to the care of them.

You know you will be receiving a high quality puppy from Frenchibulls French Bulldogs in every aspect.


How to check that a Registered Breeder is really Registered and they are who they say they are?

All Registered Breeders require to submit their details to QLD Government to the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries. This number is either referred to as a "BIN Number" or a "Breeder Supply Number" and must be displayed any where that they advertise their puppies or adult dogs. You can copy and paste this number from an advertisement you have seen and paste it into the search bar in the link below and it will come up showing you if their is any records for the number the person has supplied in their advertisement. If there is records than their first and last name, phone number and location of council should match the information they are advertising with to prove it is the real person and not someone else using someone else's number pretending it is their own.
