The Setareh Yorkies Puppy Selection Process

At Setareh Yorkies we wait until our Puppies have completed their Puppy Aptitude Tests at day 60 before we allow our families to chose their puppies.  After all puppies have completed their aptitude tests which are videod, results and videos will be sent to each family on our Puppy List for that litter.  24 Hours later we will have the first family on our list chose their puppy.  I do not believe in picking puppies at one or two weeks old since it is disrespectful to our babies. It's critical that I give my puppies a voice and let them to find the home that's right for them, which involves allowing them to grow and develop. We keep all new owners up to speed with lots of images and videos, we temperament screen our puppies at 60 Days (8 weeks 3 days), and we provide all new owners as much information as possible.

We examine each puppy individually on Day 60 before Selection Saturday, film them on video (typically 5-12 minutes long), then broadcast the recordings for everyone on the Litter List and Stand-by List to see. We also send out the evaluation scorecards, our further remarks, any noteworthy genetic testing results, and any vet findings by email. You, your family, and your friends may watch the videos, read the findings, and perhaps figure out which dogs are right for you! Families pick their puppies in the order on the Litter List on Selection Day, a Saturday (virtually or in person at our home).

Example: Family A is seeking for a puppy who is more tenderhearted We would be able to decide which puppies to adopt by assessing each dog fall into this category, and instead of relying on appearances alone, assist Family A in locating these puppies.  This guarantees that Family A does not select the most confident, high-drive puppy in the litter, only to be disappointed later when the puppy does not meet their energy requirements..

Puppies are normally taken home at the age of ten weeks. Before our pups go home, we love to capture photographs of them with their permanent families for our records and social media! Please let us know if you don't want to appear on our social media!

How am I included in seeing my puppy raised especially if I am unable to choose my puppy until it is older once it is born?
This is what is included with each litter,
it is extremely essential to us that you are a part of this adventure!

How does Puppy Selection Day Work?
After all puppies have been certified for Selection by our Veterinarian, puppy selections take place on Saturday after the puppies turn 8 weeks. On Selection, each family will be allotted a 30-minute time period. During your 30-minute time period, you can meet any puppy that is available, and we'll talk about which puppy will best suit your needs based on the information you provide/have supplied.

How can I select my puppy?
On Puppy Selection Day, puppy choices can be done in person or over the phone/zoom. If at all feasible, we urge each family to make their selection in person, as we love to see the perfect fit!

What Happens If Puppy Selection Day, There Isn't A Puppy That Meets My Needs/Wishes?
If no puppy meets your needs/desires within your 30-minute selection period, your name will be placed on our Master List for a future litter. We are committed to upholding the dignity of our pups and their owners, and we do not want you to choose a puppy that will not be a good fit for your family.
