How it works: If you would like to be placed on our priority waiting list a deposit will reserve your spot in line. It is never too early to get on our list! The sooner you do the better chance you have of getting the puppy you want. Please check out our UPCOMING LITTERS future litter plans. All puppy updates will be posted in our 'waiting list' Facebook group on ALL of our litters for everyone to see. This information will be made available to you once you have completed your non-refundable deposit agreement form (provided upon request) and your deposit has been received. We will then contact you individually via email when we have puppies available to you.
We are always accepting deposits for our future puppies! Deposits are $500 and will go towards the final purchase price of your puppy. Deposits are non-refundable but will go towards the price of your future puppy. While we cannot guarantee we will have the specific gender, color, or coat type of your choice from your desired litter, we CAN guarantee that you will get a healthy and happy new family member! We try our very best to make an educated guess about what puppies we will be expecting, but Mother Nature ultimately decides what we get and when!
Please fill out a PUPPY APPLICATION if you are interested in joining our waitlist!
For those on our waiting list, we will update everyone in our Facebook Waitlist group when each litter is born and will contact you via email individually when we have puppies available. If you prefer, we will send a text NOTIFICATION letting you know that you are up to choose as well. We ask that you let us know within 24 hours if you might be interested in selecting from the available litter. Once the litter has reached 3-4 weeks of age and are thriving, we will go down our list and start offering puppies to individuals in order of the list. If timing isn't quite right when you are up to choose you are welcome to pass on two separate occasions (taking the 3rd offer). We will provide bi-weekly photo or video updates as the puppies grow prior to choosing as well as up until they leave so that you can continue to watch your puppy mature (we do not take requests for photos/videos and will share pictures of your chosen puppy when we have them ready for you). For the safety of our young puppies, we do not allow in-person selections. If you aren't particular on gender, size, etc. you will likely have more options to choose from and have the opportunity to get your puppy sooner. We do not make selections based on eye color as this cannot be guaranteed.
Local visitors are welcome on "puppy party" days where wait list families can come to visit their chosen puppy after they have had their first set of vaccines around 6-7 weeks old. If a puppy becomes available after the set pick out day, arrangements for visitations can be made (only for those on our waiting list), Before visiting, please avoid going to pet stores, animal shelters, dog parks, or any other high traffic areas where other animals frequent. We ask that you remove shoes and sanitize your hands before interacting with the puppies to avoid the spread of disease like the common, but lethal Canine Parvovirus. We do not operate a kennel, our dogs are our family and are raised in our home. Because of this we do not have business hours for people to stop by and play with our puppies nor do we allow visits from anyone who is not on our waiting list coming on scheduled visitation or pick-up days. For the safety of our dogs and young puppies as well as our family, we do not allow tours of our home.
For families on our waiting lists, final payment on your chosen puppy is due 2 weeks before your litter's pick-up date. If for any reason we haven't received the final payment by this time, your chosen puppy and spot in line will be lost. Your puppy will be considered yours once your Deposit and Final Payment are received. If you need delivery, all shipping fees will be due along with the remaining balance of your puppy. Final payments will be made via check or bank transfer (no PayPal or Venmo).
Deposits are nonrefundable, please only place a deposit if you are certain you will be ready for a new puppy in the next 18 months! After the puppy has left our care, the new family has 3 days to take the puppy in to see a vet for a physical examination. If the puppy were to be found in ill health with any life threatening disease, the cause of which we as breeders were to blame, only then can the puppy be returned for a full refund. Shipping fees, if any, would not be refunded.
We will share each litter's pick-up date when contacting families about their availability. Pick up dates are typically the weekend closest to/after a litter has reached 8 weeks of age. We will have a 2-3 day window for pick up which you must be available for in order to select from said litter. We highly encourage everyone to drive or fly in to come pick up your new family member. We will set aside one day/timeframe within this window to meet at the airport for those flying in. If you wish to have your puppy delivered- we will have 2 flight nanny spots available per litter.
Before applying, please be open to picking up your puppy yourself if you are out of state as delivery cannot be guaranteed for everyone. We will have airline travel packs available to purchase with all of the necessities and will provide tips to help everything go smoothly.
HAND-DELIVERY: If available, we can hand-deliver your puppy to an airport near you! Your puppy will fly as carry-on with our "flight nanny" in the comfort and protection of the airplane cabin. Hand-delivery to the continental US starts at $600-800+ (depending on location). This will include your puppy's flight and everything they need to make the journey home.
You are welcome to fly in and take your puppy home as a carry-on. We can meet you at the SLC international airport.
We stand behind each puppy we sell, and each one will come with a 2-Year Health Guarantee! We guarantee your puppy to be free from any life threatening congenital defect or we will replace your puppy free of charge,
*Certain guideline must be met in order to qualify for our guarantee. Please request to see our contract if you are interested in learning more*
DEWCLAWS & TAIL DOCKING
After years of research, debating, and talking to other Doodle breeders about this topic, we have decided to keep our puppies’ dewclaws intact.
The dewclaw is like a dog’s thumb and is used to help a dog maneuver while running, enables them to climb and grip objects such as bones, and is connected to other tendons in the wrist. They are not dead appendages. Removing the claw is not only extremely painful, but damages those tendons which can lead to arthritis. In our medium to large breed dogs especially, we want to minimize the risk of arthritis as much as we can.
There are two types of dewclaws- attached dewclaws and detached dewclaws. Attached dewclaws have a bone connecting the claw to their wrist, when attached dewclaws are removed, it is similar to removing a finger on a human. Detached dewclaws do not have a bone connecting to their wrist, are floppy, and otherwise useless. Detached dewclaws that we feel will be a nuisance as a dog matures will be removed.
We have imported dogs from Europe who all have their dewclaws intact and have seen the difference having this claw makes. Removing dewclaws, tail docking, and ear cropping is outlawed in Europe and many other countries. The United States is one of the few that still allows these procedures to be done purely for cosmetic reasons. From here on out we will be implementing this new policy, dewclaws will not be removed (unless detached with a possibility of causing issues in adulthood).
We do not offer tail docking on any of our Doodle puppies. All Aussiedoodle tails will be left natural unlike the dock of the Australian Shepherd breed standard.
We believe dogs were given thumbs and tails for a reason!
Occasionally, circumstances change or a puppy does not work out in his or her new home for various reasons. In these or other similar situations we are more than happy to take the puppy or adult dog back until a new home can be found. We do not offer refunds past the 3 day mark after the puppy has gone to their new home and exchanges can only be made within our 2-year guarantee window if your puppy was found to have a genetic defect.
Each puppy will be sold on a strict spay/neuter contract. Breeding rights are available to small, approved breeders. Please contact us about breeding right pricing.
