Application and Waiting List
EMAIL APPLICATIONS TO firstname.lastname@example.org
Once a litter is born you may send a non-refundable deposit of $500 which will reserve your puppy. The wait list to choose will line up by the dates on which receive the deposits, first come, first serve.
Only one deposit per unborn litter is taken. Beachwood Canyon Cockapoos always has first choice of any litter.
I reserve the right to cancel a puppy adoption at any time if I am uncomfortable with the placement. It is important to find the right fit for our puppies and our families; the puppies' well-being is always our biggest concern. Also, I do not sell puppies to breeders nor brokers, but to pet homes only!
You will be updated with weekly photographs/videos on facebook and this website on the puppies' progress, it will be alot of fun. I will have many talks and I look forward to getting to know you! At six weeks I will call you and ask for your first and second choice. By this time I will see coats and I will begin to really see their temperaments and can assist you in choosing Ill. This always works very well.
The balance is due to be paid in cash when you pick up your puppy at eight weeks of age (10 days sooner if I are shipping to you.) I can sometimes keep pups a little longer than eight weeks; if I board them for you I charge $15 per day. I honestly feel it is better to begin bonding with your puppy as soon as it leaves it's littermates. If I board the pup I need payment in full when it turns eight weeks and the balance for boarding your pup when you pick up him/her.
I cannot waive the boarding fee, please don't ask. After 8 weeks the puppies care becomes more involved and time consuming as well as disrupting our own routine with our adult dogs. Pups from 8 - 12 weeks old have start to have different needs than very young puppies. I PREFER YOU PICK UP YOUR PUPPY AT EIGHT WEEKS OR THE WEEKEND JUST AFTER S/HE BECOMES EIGHT WEEKS. Please try and arrange with family members to board them if you have vacations, etc.
I do not allow puppy visits before first shots are given to them. I do not show puppies at our residence at this time. This is a firm policy to safeguard all the puppies' health, including the one you will choose. There are canine flu and parvo virus strains in the environment that can wipe out a whole litter in less than a week. I will not risk this. If you do not feel comfortable choosing until eight weeks so you can meet your first and second choices, then you forfeit your spot in line as most people are comfortable choosing before the pups turn eight weeks old. Often all the pups are chosen long before eight weeks. So it is a risk to wait, but you are welcome to take that risk. You may also transfer your deposit to a future litter. You may not, however, have the same place on the wait list on multiple litters. Please feel free to ask any and all questions regarding our policies. They are meant to make this whole process fair to all.
