Puppy policy & terms
read This First if you want a Poodle Puppy
Many of our poodles are placed as service dogs in training, medical alert dogs, therapy dogs, hunting dogs, emotional support dogs, obedience competition, as well as, companions.
To get premier placement to get the best choice of puppies contact us to place a deposit to reserve a future puppy.
To be considered for one of our Poodles,
READ EVERYTHING BELOW BEFORE
submitting our brief Puppy Application . After we receive your Puppy Application, we will contact you to discuss if we have a possible Poodle match for your family.
After we get your Puppy Application & we think we have a good Poodle match, in order to have your name on our wait list, we need to have a puppy application and your deposit. Waiting list placement or reserving a puppy requires a $350 Nonrefundable Deposit. Prior to this policy, we had problems with families posting their name on numerous wait lists for various breeders. Meanwhile, we had turned families away assuming that all our puppies were spoken for, only to find out that families had already purchased a puppy and had not let us know. So... we have learned that people are committed when there is a deposit!
Choices of puppies will go in the order of deposits received, so the sooner that we receive your deposit the higher up on the waiting list you will be for your pick of puppies.
The balance is due at least 14 Days before the puppy is 6 weeks old or when it's due to go to their new home, whichever is first.
This is so the puppy is ready and prepared with vaccinations, health checks, puppy packets, etc. If arrangements are not made to pick up the puppy within a week of the puppy being ready, then a daily $25 fee will be assessed to cover their care.
The deposit can be transferred to a future litter. We can not hold multiple puppies on hold with one deposit, if someone hasn't made a decision on which puppy they want. We try to match the puppy's temperament to the puppy buyer's preference, as much as possible, with many happy outcomes.
Pet Forever Homes
All of our Poodle parents are AKC registered. We place all of our puppies without AKC papers. This is to help us place our poodles in PET Homes Only. In almost all cases, only breeders want papers. There are many unethical breeders out there that do not care for their dogs, breed them without health as their primary focus or will not give them lifetime homes. Since we cannot judge who is ethical and is not, we only place our poodle puppies in PET HOMES. Placing puppies without papers helps keep our puppies in homes where they will receive the attention and care that they deserve. We will show you the AKC registration papers of the parents when you get your puppy, since all of our poodle Parents are AKC registered.
We reserve the right to refuse to place a puppy to anyone at anytime if we feel it's not the right fit.
Poodles are not the least expensive breed to purchase or keep, so if you are on a tight budget consider another breed (hint: a short haired) that does not require regular grooming. premium diet, etc.
Poodles from health tested, AKC champion lines are going to start around $1800 which, hopefully, is breakeven for a home hobby breeder. Rarer colors, like the darkest reds ever seen that our 3rd & 4th gen puppies that have taken years to selectively breed, may be more.
The health of our dogs and puppies is important to us so we take every precaution to protect them. Unfortunately, young puppies don’t have fully developed immune systems and are susceptible to life threatening illnesses, including Parvo. When diseases like Parvo strike, they can kill a whole litter in a matter of hours. Sometimes, even adult dogs are affected. Disease germs can be carried on car tires, people’s clothing and shoes. Our poodles, who live we us & are part of our family, are from very diverse bloodlines from all over the world & are irreplaceable. For this reason, we ask that you “visit” us online, rather than in person, so that you may safely see our dogs and watch the puppies grow. We photograph our puppies regularly, and post photos of the available puppies on our website.
Thank you for helping us protect the health of our puppies!
We reserve the right to refuse to place a poodle at anytime if we feel it's not the right fit.
