VISITOR POLICY

Due to an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our puppies, we do not allow visitors prior to our puppies going home.  Well intentioned visits to meet our puppies and breeding dogs can result in the introduction of various diseases (parvovirus, distemper, ect) to our breeding program by unsuspecting families.  Puppies have very immature immune systems and we are not willing to risk their safety.  Additionally, it is hard work growing and learning, which causes our puppies to wear out quickly.  Having visitors disrupts the daily puppy routine and creates unnecessary stress to the litter and our moms.  This stress can cause disruptions to their sensitive digestive systems.  Our puppies are happiest when they have minimal intrusions and added stressors.  We understand that people want to see the puppies before making a deposit.  We are always happy to schedule a virtual appointment so you can meet the litter through Facetime or Zoom.

DEPOSIT

The non-refundable deposits are $500.  Each deposit reserves the order in which the buyer chooses a puppy from a specific litter; the order in which the deposit is received determines the order in which the puppies are selected.  Deposits do not reserve specific puppies based on the sex or color of the puppy.  Individual puppies are not reserved until litter selection occurs at 8 weeks of age.

 

For each litter we accept a limited number of deposits prior to birth.  All other interested parties are placed on a waiting list and will be contacted about any available puppies after birth.  In the event of a failed pregnancy or small litter, the deposit would be returned in full or transferred to the next available litter choice based upon the buyer’s preference.  Deposits which are transferred to another litter will not “bump” deposits already placed on the alternative litter.

 

Females are highly desirable and are generally chosen first.  To ensure a female is available for choosing, we recommend placing a deposit prior to birth.

COST

Our prices vary depending on the breed, sex and color and range from $2,800 to $3,800 plus sales tax.  Current prices are always listed on the litter and deposit pages.

FINAL PAYMENT

The full purchase price (less the deposit) is due when the puppy is picked up.  Final payments must be made using Venmo, Cash or cashiers check.  Credit card and PayPal payments are not accepted for final payments.

REGISTRATION

All of our dogs are registered with the CKC (Continental Kennel Club); the sires are generally registered with the AKC (American Kennel Club), CKC or similar breed registry.  After the buyer provides proof that the dog has been altered (spayed or neutered), the buyer will be supplied with an application to register with the CKC or another equivalent registry.  In rare instances individual litters may not qualify for registration.

HEALTH GUARANTEE

At Homestead Doodles, we pride ourselves in the quality of dogs we produce and the care we provide.  We genetically test all of our dogs to ensure our puppies will bring a lifetime of joy and companionship to their forever families.  The genetic testing we do provides our customers with peace of mind knowing that there are no abnormalities with the breeding parents.  In addition to the standardized health testing, we provide our clients with a short term (7-day) and long term (24-month) health guarantee.
