Here's How It Works...
Application and Deposit
- Puppies and reservation positions are only available to approved depositors.
- Start by filling out a Puppy Adoption Application.
- After we review and approve your application, you'll be given the opportunity to submit a deposit. Once we receive your deposit, your name will be placed on the Master List of Depositors according to your preference.
Master List of Depositors
We have 3 depositor master lists, which are separated according to the projected adult size of the Bordoodle puppies... Mini's (20-30 lbs), Mediums (30-45 lbs), and Standards (45-70 lbs). Once we receive your deposit, your name iwill be added to the depositor master list in the size category of your choice. When we announce a new upcoming litter (confirmed pregnancy) in your size category, we'll notify you of the opportunity to transfer from the general master list to the specific upcoming litter. Please be aware that once you are notified, it is "first come - first serve". We do not have a seniority ranking on our general master list. If you're able to make a quick decision as to whether or not you wish to add your name to a specific litter offered, you will likely gain a top pick position on that litter.
Puppy Pick Day
Depositors that have their names listed on a specific litter will choose their puppies once the pups reach 6 weeks and 2 days of age. On this day beginning at 10 am (Mountain Time), the depositors on the list for the specific litter will begin choosing their puppies in order starting with the #1 depositor choosing first, then the #2 depositor will choose second, and so forth. We will place an "EASY BUTTON" on the litter web page allowing each depositor to record their choice. The litter web page will be updated in "Real-Time" after each puppy is chosen. Most people make their puppy choice within just a few minutes and thus the process usually moves right along.
After everyone chooses their pup, we will email you an invoice to pay the balance on your pup, including shipping and training if applicable. You can pay by credit card (we add 3% to cover processing fees charged by our on-line merchant - Bank of Utah, PayPal or Square) or you can avoid the 3% processing fee by sending us a check by mail. Either way is just fine with us. When sending a check, please mail the check right away so that we can receive your check prior to making arrangements for shipping and/or training if applicable.
Puppies Go Home @ 8 Weeks
Our sweet little puppies are ready to go home at 8 weeks of age. Please keep in mind that we are not able to let our puppies go home sooner than 8 weeks of age. It is important that all puppies have the opportunity to spend the first 8 weeks of their life with their mom and siblings giving them a chance to socialize and be properly weaned between 7-8 weeks of age. **** If you have enrolled your puppy in our training program, your pup will go home at 12 weeks of age, or at another time as may be agreed.
Shipping Your Pup
We handle all shipping details. We will arrange shipping according to your preference. If traveling by air, we prefer Delta airlines when shipping within the US. If shipping to Canada, Mexico, or overseas, we will discuss with you airline options and our further requirements for puppy travel. We always seek a direct flight if possible. We'll discuss this with you. We typically ship our pups out on the first Friday or Saturday after your puppy turns 8 weeks old. See "Shipping Details" for prices and details.
