Everything You Need To Know Before Adopting A McDoodle Puppy
ADOPTING A MCDOODLES PUPPY
Please browse our website to see what makes our doodles so special. Take the time to look at pictures of our dogs to narrow down your choice in size, gender, coat type and colour preferences. Also look at our parent dogs as that will give you an idea of what your puppy will grow up to look like. We have some great videos as well, that are worth watching and after that we are always available to chat with you about this very important decision. Once you have narrowed down your choice you can fill out our application. When your application is accepted we will contact you by email or phone.
Miniature and Petite doodle puppies are $2250 plus HST. Puppies will be vet checked, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, along with 1year health guarantee. All McDoodle parents have been health tested through PawPrint Genetics. The deposit to reserve a puppy is $200 non-refundable. Puppies also come with information guide as well as a care package.
Puppy selection is done in order of first deposit received for particular gender, colour, size etc. If you are not satisfied with the selection of a certain litter, your deposit will be transferred to the next available litter.
All prices are subject to change.
Families are put on our waitlist in order of deposits received. Please be aware that breeders choice on any litter will always be the first choice. Our wait times can vary depending on the availability of puppies and your specifications for a particular size, colour, coat type or parents. We usually have a good idea of what our upcoming litters will be, but we cannot always guarantee what a given litter may produce. An example of this may be a rarer colour that will involve a long wait time. Our average wait times are 3-4 months if puppies are not available.
After we receive your deposit we will contact you to talk about making the best choice for your upcoming puppy. We do our best to match puppies with the needs of upcoming families, and at the same time, we like to ensure our puppies are going to responsible families. On that note, we often have a say on which puppy will be best suited for your family. We do early neurological stimulation with our pups and the Volhard Temperament Testing at 7 weeks. We also live with our puppies, they get lots of handling and love, which gives us a pretty good idea on personalities. All in all, we have great success in placing our puppies. Once they are in their home it is highly recommended that you continue with proper socialization and training.
WHEN IS MY PUPPY READY TO GO HOME
Our puppies are ready for their new families at 8 weeks. A board-certified Veterinarian gives all our puppies a thorough health examination, their first puppy boosters and stool samples are checked as well. Puppies are also microchipped and given a puppy grooming on the day they go home. We also send all our future puppy families detailed information and educational documents to help prepare for the new addition. We will contact you when we have set dates for puppy pickups. If you cannot pick up your puppy on our scheduled pick up date there is an extra charge for boarding which is 30.00/day. Please check with us as there is also an option of putting your puppy into our preschool puppy training program.
DO WE SHIP OUR PUPPIES?
We have many families that are not local or live out of province. We always prefer it if you can come in person to pick up your puppy, that way we have the pleasure of meeting in person. Puppies can then travel with you in the plane in a crate that will fit under your seat. We are happy to meet you at the airport with your puppy if this helps with travel plans. For our Southern Ontario clients, we will offer delivery services to Parry Sound or Barrie for a minimal fee.
If the timing is not right and you cannot take your puppy home at 8 weeks, you can be placed back on the wait list for an upcoming litter of your choice.
HOW TO MAKE A PAYMENT
Cash in person, cheque, bank draft, or E-Transfer is our accepted methods of payment. The full balance owing on your puppy is due a week before pick up. ***We will accept Visa or Mastercard payments with a 3% surcharge.
