Gotcha Day Experience

Get The Complete “Smeraglia Experience!”

We believe that a puppy’s GOTCHA Day is a very special day. Picking up your puppy in person is the way that we prefer for our puppies to go home. We want you to get the complete “Smeraglia Experience”.

We LOVE Gotcha Day celebrations, and we have special add-on packages to make your day special. Please email Dana our Concierge at [email protected] to get more details.

Puppy pick-up appointments are done at the Smeraglia family Estate in the beautiful Chapel Barn.
