Price of our puppies...

 

We have taken great care with what dogs we are breeding to and use in our program. In order for us to provide families with healthy, happy puppies we need to be sure their parents are healthy and well taken care of. We put a lot of work into our puppies so that they are well socialized and are confident. We are always working on ways to better our breeding program. Our Labradoodle puppies price range depends on type of coat, color and generation; pricing starting at $1500 for solid colors and up to $2500 for harder to achieve patterns. This may seem high to some, but a "cheap" puppy isn't always a deal. The amount of work and finances that it takes to raise healthy, well socialized and confident puppies is very expensive and time consuming. We do allow payments to be made while waiting for your puppy to be ready to go, the balance on your puppy must be paid before (s)he leaves us. If picking up your puppy in person, we will only accept cash on day of pick up. If you need to make the final payment by electronic means, please prepare to make payment up to five (5) days prior to pick up in order to allow processing to go through (I do allow electronic payments on day of pick up, but as stated, the payment must clear before the puppy leaves my home). We DO NOT accept personal checks or money orders at anytime. We only accept electronic payment through our Good Dog account as this is the only payment service that guarantees the buyer as well as the breeder to be protected against fraudulent claims.

Reservation Fee...

Once you have decided that you would like to bring home one of our Dandy Labradoodles or Standard Poodles, you will be expected to place a $400 reservation fee which is NON REFUNDABLE. The reservation fee can be transferred to another puppy if one is available or it can be transferred to a puppy from a future litter. We can not guarantee a specific placement on our waiting list, as we always have families waiting for our puppies. Once we have received the the $400 non refundable reservation fee then, and only then, the puppy you have chosen will be taken off our available list and will be listed as reserved on our Nursery page. This fee is applied to the price of the puppy and the remaining balance is due on or before the date written on your Purchase Agreement. We only accept payment for the reservation fee through Good Dog or a cash payment. Please look over our Purchase Agreement prior to sending a reservation fee. Once payment has been made and Purchase Agreement is signed you and I are bound to this agreement. At this time we do not take credit cards.

Shipping/ Transporting...

We offer shipping options to families outside of our area that are unable to come to our home and pick up their puppy. Although we do prefer to meet in person with the families that receive our puppies, sometimes that is impossible. In which case we offer to ship or transport our puppies to them. We personally prefer to fly our puppies to their new homes if we have to ship them. It is not only a quicker means of transport, but safer as well. A flight that would normally take 4-6hrs to reach the destination, could possibly take ground transport many days, even a week to reach where the puppy needs to go. Shipping fees vary depending on mode of transportation and company being used. A ground transport can be as little as $250 and a flight could be as much as $550. None of this fee is "pocketed" by Dandy Doodles. All money received goes specifically for the transport of your puppy. The shipping fee will be included in the price of the puppy at the time payment is received. Your puppy will not be sent until full payment of the puppy has been received, no exceptions. If you need more time to pay the remaining balance, please make arrangements with us at least 4 days before transport date. If arrangements are not made prior to the 4 day limit, you will be charged an additional fee for another health certificate to be released at time of flight/ transport. Health certificates are only valid for 10 days, which is why we need to be made aware if your puppy will need to stay with us longer. We usually schedule the vet visit to acquire the health certificate 3 days prior to flight. We will then reschedule your puppy's visit with our vet at a later date. When you receive your puppy, you will be provided with a crate (unless using ground transport and they don't allow personal crates), health certificate and all paperwork pertaining to your puppy.
