Honestly Laurie...
The Karma/Pascha puppies are available for homes on Dec 13th (8wks old).....so technically...some people might consider them Xmas time puppies.
I have been "screening" prospects for over 2 months.....so I am satisfied...and even though they are "available" to new homes in December...they are not Xmas Puppies.
*I actually don't like having puppies available around the holidays......they can be born around the holidays...just not available.*

I think (and I'm not a breeder here that it depends on the home they are going to.

I got Jynx a week before xmas however, she was not an impulse buy, it just happened they were ready to go home then.

You obviously have to screen buyers appropriately, but actually around the holidays isn't a bad time because the people are usually on vacation from work and can spend alot of initial time with a puppy. So from that aspect it is not necessarily a bad time. What you are getting at though is people buying on holiday impulse and/or for the wrong reasons. Breeders have to screen appropriately throughout the year though for this.

I think the holidays is a GREAT time depending on who the puppies are going to. I would love it if I got a puppy over Christmas some time. The years we are here, it is one of the rare occasions I take a whole week off of work. My mom and dad--huge dog people--will stay around a few extra days ususally. Great opportunities for socialization. It's my dream time.

Well, except for the snow around here. It would definitely be my dream time if I lived somewhere warmer

Unless the breeders standards change regarding processing through potential buyers, I don't see why it would even matter.

I would love to get a pup over the holidays. As stated above, I have additional time off and I usually have guests coming by. So if nothing else, the pressures of crate training and potty training are made just a little easier. (Please! For the love of all that is Holy! Stop screaming in your crate! It's 2:00 a.m. and I have to go to work in the morning!)
