Litters
Check out our Facebook page – Grove British Labs – for updated pictures of these litters as they happen.  We update pictures about every 2 weeks when we have litters to show puppy owners with deposits placed.

 

DATE TIME
Feb 6, 2020 5:00-7:00 PM (Penny litter openings)

 

For those still considering putting down a puppy deposit, we provide scheduled Open House opportunities for you to visit our kennel when we have puppies which are old enough to handle.  Sometimes these are held towards the end of one of our puppy selection nights, so we want to respect those who have deposits in and are doing their puppy selections.    We  will determine whether this can happen depending on considerations for COVID.

In all cases, we do ask that you call the kennel at 952-484-0112 to schedule a specific time for your visit.  We want to avoid having too many people showing up at the same time.  Plus we want to be available to answer any questions you might have.



Update: 09/22/2020

Projected Upcoming Litters  (these are best guesses at this point.  The final schedule is determined 4 months prior to litter takehome dates:
Fall Litters (Oct-Dec 2020)

The fall litters began about 6 weeks behind our projected schedule.  But the females will be coming in quickly now.

    • Shelbey X Foxx:   Breeding completed.   Fox reds
      • Expecting to be born around Sept 28th.  Takehome in mid-November.  Fox reds.
      • We’ll get pictures of Shelbey on the website soon.  She is a Pepin pup.  Confident and gentle dog.
    • Josie & Dash:  Breeding completed.   Fox reds
        • Expecting to be born around October 14.  Takehome in mid-November.  Fox reds.
    • Zoey & Chase:  Breeding completed.   Fox reds
        • Expecting to be born around November 6.  Takehome in late-December.  Fox reds.
        • We’ll get pictures of Chase on the website soon.  He is a Foxx pup.  Confident and gentle dog.
    • Abby & Dash:  Breeding completed.   Fox reds
        • Expecting to be born around November 18.  Takehome in early-January.  Fox reds.
    • Our other 1 potential fall litter will LIKELY be Lucy
        • But we won’t fully know until they hit their cycles in the next projected 4-8 weeks.

 

Winter Litters (Jan-Mar 2021)
    • We will pick 3-4 mothers out of this grouping of females depending on when they hit their cycles
    • Spice and Penny are expected to be repeat mothers
    •  Kinni, and Ruby are also potential first time mothers for this timeframe.  They are going through genetic and OFA certification in early Fall.

 

Spring Litters (April-June 2021)
    • We will likely have 3 litters in the spring.
    • Too early to project females.  We will update as we have info available.

 

This will be the last of our spring litters in 2021.  We typically don’t do a lot of breeding over the summer months.

  • Currently taking $300 deposits to reserve pups in these litters.
  • As of now, we are into Winter and later litters with new deposits.

 

**Note: We are already taking deposits toward  Winter/Spring 2021 and Fall 2021  takehome puppies.   Typically our deposits are 3-6 months ahead of our takehome dates.  So now is the time to get on the schedule with a deposit.

Future schedule will be published as we know.  But if you are looking for fall, winter or spring puppies, now is the time to place deposits on those litters to reserve your spot in the selection process.  Typically our litters are sold out before they are born.
 


 

If you are interested in getting a puppy from Grove British Kennels, the best thing to do is get a deposit in early to get on the selection list.  Most of our litters are sold out in advance. 
You can move your deposit to later litters if the timing of a particular litter doesn’t work out, but our deposit is non-refundable unless we are not able to provide you a puppy in the specified 3-month window.  We can help you match a puppy to your specific needs.
 
If desired we can setup a time for you to visit our kennel in Inver Grove Heights.  However, for the puppies’ health, we prefer to do that only when the puppies are old enough for visitors, not when they are still nursing from their mother. 
Since we are within the metro area, we get tons of requests for visits – so we need to manage and coordinate those visits by taking into account our puppy schedule.  Kennel visits can be arranged when we have puppies we are able to show (typically 6 weeks old).  We advertise Open Houses on Facebook for when kennel visits are allowed, but we still ask that you schedule a time so that not everyone arrives at once.
 
We are a smaller breeder.  We find placement homes for most of our breeding dogs.  So as a result, for many of them they are only at our Inver Grove Heights kennel when they are being bred, or when they are whelping/nursing puppies.   The rest of the time they are with their placement home.  We do provide several pictures of each of our breeding dogs on the website Dams and Stud tabs.  We can answer any specific questions you might have about an individual dog.
A $300 deposit is required to reserve your picking order in the puppy selection process.  When sending in a deposit, please include all of your contact info (phone, email, and address) and also whether you are looking for a male or female puppy.  Also, let us know the earliest timeframe you would be ready to take a puppy home.
Puppies can be picked up at 7-8 weeks old.  We wait till 8 weeks for those customers who wish to have their puppy shipped to them.  Shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer.  However, typically we prefer not to ship puppies.
At Grove British Kennels, we will provide you with general health info, as well as info on training and nutrition.  Updated vaccination information, pedigrees, and puppy guarantees will also be provided.  Your puppy will have already had their dew claws removed, and received its first set of vaccinations and deworming.
We start the puppies on group crate and potty training at 4 weeks of age, to help make their transition to your home easier.  We spend a lot of time with the puppies after they are weaned from their mother – so you will be receiving a puppy that is very well socialized and ready to interact with people.
After you bring the new puppy home, we are still available for any questions you may have along the way.  We always enjoy receiving puppy pictures as they get older and hear stories of what the puppies are up to
