As a buyer I would think that “when is the next available litter?” is a simple question. We wish it were a simple predictable question, but as life generally goes it is a complicated question.
Below is our explanation of the situation:
We wish we could tell a prospective buyer when a new litter will arrive.
There is no way Rancho Santiago Catahoulas can tell a buyer exactly when the next planned litter will be available for sale for several reasons out of our control.
The plan to mate one of our special stud Catahoulas with one of our top quality bitches is decided by Rancho Santiago. The time to breed is decided when the bitch’s natural hormones trigger her heat cycle. Nature makes this breeding time decision over which we have no control.
After the breeding, because every breeding is not successful, there is a thirty-day wait to see if there was conception.
If the pups made, then a bitch (female) is pregnant 62-63 days before whelping (birth). At birth the puppies are closely inspected for health. As the pups grow their growth and development is monitored daily.
Rancho Santiago wants our buyers to know the waiting time to receive a reserved pup can take several months… avaliability of pups all depends on the bitch’s heat cycle and conception.
Time has shown that a Rancho Santiago proven top of the breed quality puppy is well worth the wait.
