You have done your research and have decided what type of doodle puppy best suits your family, now what?
Our waiting list procedure / How to adopt a puppy
Simply click our “wait list sign up” button on our website and submit your contact information and request regarding the doodle breed you are looking for. We will receive your request through our system and add you to our waiting list for the future upcoming litter of your specified doodle.
Once the litter has been born we will contact everyone on the list at once to announce the litter has been born and that pictures can be viewed on the website. There is no order to pick a puppy, we find this a fair solution to families having to wait sometimes years on a list. We provide everyone on the lists the same time frame and opportunity to adopt. In practicing this policy one should note that the puppies do find homes very quickly and your prompt reply to the litter announcement enables you a better chance to adopt. If you have been placed on a waiting list and decide that you would prefer to wait until a future litter we will gladly keep you on the list until the time you are ready to pick your new pup.
Feel free to sign up to our waiting list on our litter announcements page here: https://designerdoodlescanada.com/litter-announcements
Placing a deposit
If there is a particular puppy you are interested in once the litter is announced and would like to place a deposit on that puppy, you can contact us with a little bit of information about you and your family home.
We will review your request and get back to you if you have been chosen as a suitable home for a puppy. Please know we do get several wonderful families that apply and if you do not hear back it generally does not mean you are not suited to be a wonderful candidate for a puppy. Often there are several requests submitted for the same puppy, because of this we do ask that you wait on placing a deposit until you have heard back from us to ensure availability of that specific puppy.
Please note the deposit($500-$700) is non-refundable with exception if there were to be any health issues that arise with the puppy during the time the puppy is with the breeder. You also do have the option of transferring the deposit to another current or future litter should there be a health concern with the puppy you have placed a deposit with.
If you require having your puppy shipped / delivered we do require the added costs be included in the deposit transaction. Prices for delivery and Airline shipping are listed below. We also ask that before you contact us to place your deposit you have read and agree to our adoption policies.
Keeping puppies safe and healthy
We work hard at maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our mini doodle puppies and in doing so we have policies in place to help prevent the spread of dangerous viruses that can be detrimental to the health of our puppies. Therefore we do not allow visitors until the puppies have received their vaccinations.
There are a large amount of reported cases of Parvo Virus in Canada and the U.S. Parvo Virus is a highly contagious disease that can be carried from kennel to kennel or from parks, vet offices, pet stores, etc. on your shoes, clothing, skin and can wipe out a whole litter in a matter of a few days. The dog flu is also on the rise and is similar to kennel cough. These are both very highly contagious diseases that could have disastrous results in a litter of puppies therefore we must ask that you not visit any other kennel, pet store, dog park, vet office or anywhere else that there may be ill dogs when the time comes to view the pups or pick your new puppy up. We thrive to maintain a bio-secure environment for the safety and protection of not only your pup but the other families who are waiting to bring their pups home as well.
We do include a Health Guarantee with our puppies. Our Health Guarantee Contract can be found on our website here: https://designerdoodlescanada.com/health-guarentee-contract
For families with allergies please keep in mind that there is no guarantee that any of our doodles will be completely hypoallergenic. We do recommend severe allergy sufferers to veer on the side of caution when deciding to purchase a doodle as generally our puppies are too young to know how low shedding their coat will be while they are with us.
Watching your puppy grow
We understand that families are excited to meet their puppy and watch them grow and develop, therefore we do update the website with new pictures throughout the weeks (generally 2,4,6 weeks of age)so that families can check in to see how the pups are doing. We welcome all emails with questions regarding preparation for bringing your new puppy home however we do not offer video/facetime and specific picture requests anymore as we simply do not have the time to fulfill the several requests we receive.
Most of our puppies are generally spoken for through our waiting lists however if we do have puppies that are available for families to come and meet we schedule a visit day once the pups have had their vaccines and are ready to go to their new homes. All of our visit days fall on a weekend to accommodate work schedules and travel time.
Our Covid 19 Response
Due to the increasing positive cases of Covid 19 in British Columbia we are temporarily suspending onsite puppy pickups and will only be offering delivery and shipping services for our puppies to the Lower Mainland. Please note all applicable fees do apply to this service.
Families located on Vancouver Island will need to make arrangements to ensure they are able to meet our delivery person on one of the mainland-side ferry terminals. Failure to meet on time to pick up your puppy may result in loss of your deposit so please be sure you are able to make arrangements to meet.
Designer Doodles Canada reserves the right at its sole discretion to refuse or return any deposits on the purchase of a puppy.
SHIPPING / DELIVERY OF PUPPIES
We offer several options regarding having your puppy shipped to you.
Shipping costs / delivery costs are the responsibility of the buyer and are due payable at the time of deposit.
Via Airline - Any destination in Canada $450 ( +$100 cost of airline approved kennel) (Not including tax).
We often travel to the Lower Mainland area and will provide free delivery on those trips.
Other than those times we do have a delivery fee of $150 (not including tax) to have your puppy delivered at a centralized location arranged with our delivery person. Please contact us for more details regarding delivery locations.
We require shipping/kennel and delivery costs be included in your initial puppy deposit.
BOARIDNG / KEEPING YOUR PUPPY IN OUR CARE
During the summer and holidays we often have families who will be away for the "go home" date of their puppy and are unable to receive their puppy at that time .To accommodate this scenario we offer a maximum two week boarding service for these situations. We can make some exceptions for longer boarding services. There is a fee of $100 per week for boarding due payable with the final balance of the puppy. Final balance of puppies must be paid in full by the age of 8 weeks regardless of the boarding time required.
Upon your arrival home we will have your puppy scheduled to be delivered on our next available delivery date or you may travel to pick your puppy up.
The deposit ($500-$700) to reserve a puppy is non-refundable with exception if there were to be any health issues that arise with the puppy during the time the puppy is with the breeder. You also do have the option of transferring the deposit to another available current or future litter should there be a health concern with the puppy you have placed a deposit with.
If you require delivery or shipping, the fees for this must be included with your puppy deposit.
GST (5%) is not included in our listed adoption fee or delivery fee and will be applied after your total is calculated.
If you are picking your puppy up final payment is due at that time, payment options include E-transfer or cash.
If you are having your puppy shipped final payment is due via Interac E-transfer 7 days prior to scheduled flight date. If you are having your puppy delivered final payment is due 5 days prior to delivery date. Often banks have limits on sending transfers so please check with your bank in advance that your E-transfer sending limits are sufficient to ensure timely final payment can be processed.
