Puppies are picked in the order deposits are received which we will start going through our waiting list and posting the order after we start posting the puppies on the page. We have our waiting list posted on our Planned Litters page as well. Sometimes people choose right away from pictures or the videos that are posted on our website and facebook & you are welcome to do that when it's your turn to choose. I also have no problems sending individual videos of the pups for the people that are transporting their puppy. For the ones that are able to visit, we let the babies leave at 8 weeks of age. We start scheduling days and times when they are 7 weeks of age and in the order of the picking so when you visit, you see the babies that you get to choose from. The babies will start leaving after their 8 week old monthlies are done and vet check up. We ask also that you please do not visit with any other kennels prior to visiting ours. We take great care in protecting our babies when they are this young. We also update the website as the picking starts and place the name of the puppy decided beside the new families name to keep everyone in the loop with who is still available.
Final payment for the puppy is due at pickup. The final payment will need to be paid in cash or credit card or you can choose to pay online the balance or mail in a check prior to pick up time. We have Venmo as well under @Mason-Farms.
You will receive a take home packet when you pick up your new baby. It comes with a really nice pet travel bag and weeks supply of food, collar, leash, micro chip tag, toys, treats, training chews, biscuits, blanket, food scoop, poop bags and a 12 day supply of the Nu Vet vitamins along with their Fidovite supplement. Will also have AKC registration papers, copy of heath guarantee, check list, parents pedigree and form to register your microchip. I will walk you through everything at the time of pick up.
We have a Facebook page. You can find it under the name Mason Farms. I post pictures and videos on there as I can so you can have a chance to see more updates on all of the babies. :) We post group videos of the babies playing when they are young and before they leave we will post individual videos of them.

FidoVite Sportzdog Health Benefits
The intestinal tract is the largest organ in the body, giving rise to a large surface area for the absorption of and digestion of nutrients. An undernourished or unstable intestinal tract leads to poor digestion, depressed defense systems, which leads to reduction in nutrient absorption.
A dull hair coat is not normal, Fido-Vite products nutritionally support a normal shiny hair coat. High levels of DHA Omega-3 support a normal haircoat.
We know that dogs have increased nutrient needs when they are challenged by sickness, injury, stress, or whelping, Fido-Vite allows your dog to get the extra nutrients required.
It is estimated that 30-40% of dogs in the United States are over-weight. Restricting dog food will work for losing weight, but other important nutrients like trace minerals and vitamins needed by the dog will be restricted as well. Fido-Vite restores essential nutrients that diet restriction takes out.
Probiotics & Enzymes
It is very difficult for probiotics and digestive enzymes to be delivered in regular dog food because it is destroyed by the processing. Even vitamins need to be over-formulated to assure enough survive the process. A normal healthy dog has a healthy microbiome. The microbiome is the healthy flora (probiotics) in the intestinal tract. When a dog has a sudden change in diet, sudden change in water, is under stress or is on antibiotics, the microbiome can become disrupted, potentially leading to health problems. All Fido-Vite products contain probiotics that are difficult to deliver in heat processed kibble.
Trace Mineral & Vitamin Nutrition
Fido-Vite contains all the essential trace minerals and vitamins required by dogs according to the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). Fido-Vite products add extra trace mineral and vitamin nutrition to your dog food, balanced to more optimal National Research Council (NRC) requirements to support the higher nutritional needs of stressful environments like showing, hunting, working in sport, breeding and health challenges.
All the health benefits of Fido-Vite with the extra joint benefits of Glucosamine and Chondroitin. Fido-Vite SportzDog is recommended for show dogs, competition and working dogs, puppies transitioning to dry food or new homes, the high demands of gestating, lactating females and stud dogs.
Supports Cognitive Performance
High levels of DHA Omega-3 support cognitive performance in puppies, high activity sporting dogs as well as geriatrics.
Organic Trace Minerals
Organic trace minerals have a much higher absorbability when compared to the oxide and sulfate forms of mineral. Organic minerals are very beneficial in dealing with the older or compromised individual because of enhanced absorbability.
We use Sportzdog with our adults and our puppies. Your puppy will come with a bag and a scoop so you can continue the supplement with them. We feed it in the AM and add a little bit of water to it as it makes a gravy type mix and they LOVE it.
Set your dog up on a feeding schedule. Feed at or as close to the same time every day. Put the food bowl down for 10-15 minutes. When the time is up, take the food up. Your puppy is eating 2 times a day, 6:00 am & 5:00 pm. When your puppy leaves, they will be eating 1 cup each feeding. Success is a clean bowl. Use the guide on the back of your dog food bag to know how much is recommended for your dog each day, keep in mind the amount of food will need to increase as your dog gets older & during a growth spurt time.
We choose to feed our dogs and proudly recommend TLC All Life Stages Dog Food. Delivering the ultimate balance of quality meats, animal fats, vitamins and minerals, TLC All Life Stages Dog Food provides everything your puppy needs to develop into a strong, healthy and energetic dog. We have used this formula for over 5 years now.
VACCINATIONS, DEWORMING, HEARTWORM, FLEA/TICK PREVENTION
VACCINATIONS ~ Your puppy will receive it's first of a series of 4 puppy shots. You will have a more detailed health record in your puppy packet. Please check with your vet for their opinion on vaccinations, & set up a schedule for your new puppy. This is the schedule we follow, we do a 4 week old parvo vaccine and then they will get their 7 week all in one vaccine but they will still need boosters around 10 and 13 weeks of age.
DEWORMING ~ Your puppy has been dewormed with pyrantel at 2, 4 and 6 weeks of age along with a three day Panacur treatment before they go into new homes at 8 weeks of age. Each time your puppy receives a vaccination they will need to be dewormed as well at your vet as they will tell you,
HEARTWORM PREVENTION ~ Please consult your vet for their recommendation for heartworm prevention. We use heart gard and your puppy will have its first month prevention already done at 6 weeks of age
FLEA/TICK PREVENTION ~ Please consult your vet for their recommendation for flea/tick prevention. We use & recommend Bravecto chewables and love how they work for three months. It is what we use on all of our adult dogs. For our puppies, we use Simparica trio which is a monthly that covers flea/tick/intestinal and heartworms.
