There are currently 16 families on our Reservation List.
As breeders we reserve the right to take up to two pups from a litter for our breeding program. We rarely take two and only occasionally take one.
1. If you are interested in adopting a Catskill Country Australian Labradoodle puppy and have any questions, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Once you've decided you'd like a puppy, the first step to adopting is filling out and submitting an application. If you haven't already contacted us, please do so, and we will email you an application.
3. When we receive your application, we will review it and let you know if you have been approved. If approved, the next step is to submit a $700 deposit, securing a spot on our reservation list. $350 of this deposit is non-refundable . If you find a puppy prior to our litter being born, we will refund $350 of your deposit. Deposits can be made right on the website.
3. Once we receive both an approved application and a deposit, we will contact you and let you know what your number is on the master list.
4. Now that you are on the master list, we will contact you when our girls are bred and when pups are born. We will ask families at the top of the list if they would like to adopt a puppy from the litter that was just born. Families can say yes or no based on where they are on picking order, gender, size and/or color of the litter. If they skip adopting from the litter, their names will be placed at the top of the list for the next litter. For the most choice, and the quickest adoption of a puppy, families want to be as close to the top of the list as possible.
5. Once you have agreed to a litter, we will send you almost daily texts and videos of the puppies. We will be in contact with you via email several times a week, and we zoom with families at least weekly so they can watch the puppies grow and get to know them.
5. At two weeks of age a second payment of $1150 is due. This can be paid on our website or families are also able to send a personal check.
6. At six weeks of age the veterinarian comes to our house to do health checks and physicals on each of the puppies. They will be given their first set of vaccinations and a microchip will be implanted. Puppies will have been wormed starting at two weeks of age. The final payment of $1150 is due at 6 weeks.
7. At seven weeks of age, the Volhard Puppy Personality Test is given. Along with health records and notes families have been keeping about puppies during our zoom meetings, this test may help families to choose their perfect puppy.
8. After the Volhard test is administered and the results distributed to all families in the litter, we will begin zooming individually with each family for their pick of the litter.
9. At eight weeks, pups are ready to go to their new homes. We would love for you to come and meet us and pick up your puppy here at our farm. Right now because of Covid, that is just not an option. We hope that this will change soon. We are happy to meet you at exit 9 or 12 off of I88 to give you your puppy. It is also possible for us to arrange someone we trust to hand deliver your puppy to you. Costs vary depending on your location. Just contact us as early as possible to make arrangements.
Please know we feel it is our mission to connect healthy, well socialized, beautiful pups to families that understand and are completely ready to welcome an 8 week old puppy into their home. We will do anything and everything we can to make sure you feel confident and comfortable with your new companion.
