RESERVING A PUP
A set amount of priority spots will be reserved by non-refundable deposit of $500 for each planned litter prior to breeding. See our Planned Litters page for current Waitlists. Once the litter is born, additional spots will be opened and this will be announced on our PUP Community blog.
If the breeding does not result in a pregnancy, deposits for that litter will be refunded. No other reasons will qualify for refunding deposits for priority spots in planned litters.
Pregnancy confirmation is done by ultrasound 4 weeks after breeding. Gestation of puppies is approximately 2 months total from the time of breeding. Puppies are chosen in person once the puppies are 6 weeks old.
*We also reserve the right to change breeding pairs or change our prices without obligation to you as the buyer prior to the accepting of deposits. We also reserve the first one or two puppies of each litter for our future breeding program or other outside breeding programs, but may not always keep puppies back.
To find out when litters will be announced, it is recommended that join our PUP COMMUNITY (find the tab PUP Community Blog)
This is where we will announce when we will accept applications and deposits will be accepted to secure puppy pick order.
Another option is to follow us on Facebook Apricot Poodles & Goldendoodles @ SoCalFamilyDogs. We will announce on Facebook after our PUP COMMUNITY if our spots are not full.
Deposits are $500 and can be made by personal check/Cash/Zelle or Good Dog and final payment can be paid Cash/USPS Cashiers Check/Zelle/or through Good Dog (must make a Good Dog account). WE WILL NOT ACCEPT VENMO OR PAYPAL DUE TO FEES and animal sale regulations. Approved application is required before submitting deposit.
Deposit amount will go towards final puppy price. Once the litter is born, if we do not have the gender or coat color you want, you can roll over your deposit ONE TIME to the next litter available litter of similar pairing before your deposit is forfeited for reserving a dog. Please only place a deposit if interested in that specific litter being announced.
