Frequently asked questions

  • Where are we located?
    • We are located in Cedar City, Utah, US​
  • How will you get your puppy?
    • We will arrange to meet you for pickup as the time approaches.  We travel to Las Vegas NV, Fillmore UT, and Richfield UT each litter to meet those that are driving or flying in for pickup.  We are also happy to meet you if you are drive a great distance.      
  • Can you visit our kennel?
    • We have had many requests to visit our kennel. In the past, we have enjoyed meeting families​ but due to the amount of requests that we receive we simply cannot accommodate that many visits as it interferes with our ability to care for our dogs.  It is also very hard on our new mothers to have visitors, they are very puppy protective.

    • It depends on what you are looking for but typically between three and four months.
  • Are deposits refundable?
    • No, deposits are not refundable.​ 
  • Do you have to take the next available puppy if you are next on the wait list?
    • No, you can choose to pass and you will keep your spot in line on the wait list.​  We enjoy helping match each puppy to their new families.  We will help you though this process with pictures, personality and temperament descriptions.

    • Puppies come with an AKC limited registration.  Meaning; the puppy will be registered with AKC but not given future breeding rights.

However, if you contact Red Canyon Retrievers and consult PRIOR to incurring any medical cost, we will consult with our team, including our Veterinarian to seek recommendations for best treatment options. We will not reimburse any Veterinary cost incurred other than costs that have received prior approval from the Red Canyon Retriever Team.
