Buying a puppy from us

The first step is to fill out a puppy application, return it to us and wait for review. If we determine a Fennario Direwolf Dog is a right fit for you and your family, we will contact you and discuss your future puppy or adult Direwolf Dog, and you will send a deposit of $600.00 to be placed on our Waiting List.  


Your deposit with Fennario Kennels will allow you immediate access to all health records and journals of Fennario's Direwolf Dogs,  current and retired, during your time on the wait-list and life of your dog. 

We will then begin working to research pedigrees, gain DNA testing, clear Hip, Elbow and Eye Certification from NAABA for Sire and Dam, Breeders Insured Sire and Dam, Strong-Bred Title and CGC Evaluation for every pup and breeding dog.

We will work closely with you, through videos and email, phone conversations as well as an extensive social media community with completely match you with one of our fantastic puppies, as a part of your family for many years to come.



You will need to turn in your travel plans and/or preferred arrival date form by the time your match litter group is 3 weeks old.

You will need to keep a close eye on our wait list.  Your username will be high lighted with the Litter Group name and pick date placed beside it.   We'll keep discussing as they grow, and when your pick date comes, you will need to make a decision to take the suggested match or pass for a future litter



What it is and how it works....

The National American Breeder's Association is the governing body of all Dire Wolf Project breeders. Currently, there is a common list of people waiting for a puppy from any breeder within the Dire Wolf Project. When a new breeder starts up their Project site, business practices are taught by the NAABA through a separate wait list , to be managed and maintained by the New Breeder. Upon completion and correct management of the initial first litter, the New Breeder will receive full certification and become part of the common wait list of the entire Dire Wolf Project. All monies are under direct supervision of the NAABA.


The deposit amount is the same as the common DWP deposit amount of $600.  When you are accepted and your deposit is placed, you will be able to choose your puppy from the first litter of Fennario's lines (minus my one pick of course).   

If you have already placed a deposit with the DWP through another breeder, you will still have to send a deposit for this litter in particular, which has a maximum of 10 spots.  The date you place your deposit will determine the your pick order. First to place deposits are first to pick. When you bring your pup home from Fennario  kennels, BOTH deposits will be deducted from the total cost of the pup, OR you can keep your original deposit in place with DWP with your original pick date.


Should the pup of your dreams not come around in this litter, you will have the option to move into the common waitlist, and your deposit will be forwarded to the breeder you choose your pup from, always keeping your original placement/pick date with this deposit.

These deposits, like the common ones, are non refundable
