NOTE: sister just had a house fire and they are okay, but we are scrambling for housing and clothing for them, and her dogs, right now - I will do my best to reply when we get some things settled - sorry!
We are not booking beyond March 2021. UNLESS YOU ARE READY NOW OR READY FOR THE OPEN LISTS POSTED THAT ARE UPCOMIGN READY, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL ME RIGHT NOW - I CURRENTLY HAVE A QUEUE OF OVER 60 SOME EMAILS - then I get replies to reply to - it is impossible for me to answer all so I will get to those that know what list they want on first, then those that want on wait list for March/April, and after that, it is doubtful I can get to random questions or emails for puppies farther out. If you have questions on goldendoodles or sheepadoodles, please read online. If you have a dozen questions for me, I'm sorry, as of right now, I am limited to 5 hours a day of emails and don't have time for more.
We understand you want to plan ahead, but Mother Nature is fickle and pulls too many surprises for us to guarantee puppies. We would prefer to wait until they are born and a week old before booking up a litter list.
I know this is different from most breeders - they take deposits out for many months in advance, but we feel it is unfair for us to take deposits without knowing for certain what is going to be available.
Please please do not ask me to try to keep track of your time schedule wants - I do not have the capacity to keep lists of names and the dates they want a puppy. Puppies are in high demand right now, and the emails that come in are overwhelming.
When should you apply - or follow up on a previous submitted application? When you see a puppy litter list open up, or a month in advance of when you want the pup. If you really want a puppy from us, you might have to be flexible on your time frame.
We are a small family breeder. We do not have kennel facilities and we do not have thousands of puppies every year. We do not all live in the same households (thank goodness) - it is mom, 3 sisters, 3 cousins.
Beware the website that always has puppies available and of many different 'breeds'. Unfortunately, there are few breeders that I would recommend, and the ones I would, are just as booked up as we are.
Thank you for your support and for loving our doodles!
