Reservation and Payment:
Please submit your application (found at the bottom of each webpage). Once approved, a reservation fee of $300 is required to reserve your spot on your chosen litter. Fees are non refundable unless deemed necessary by the Breeder. They may be transferred to any future litter. Puppies are reserved/chosen by the order that reservation fee is received. We do allow home visits at our discretion, by appointment. Our puppies health and safety is always top priority. Puppy Pick Day is held when the puppies are around 5 weeks old in person or via FaceTime or Video chat--just when they start getting a little personality!
The remaining balance is due when your puppy is 7 weeks old. We accept many payment options for the final balance-including Cash, Venmo, Zelle and Apple Pay. PayPal/Personal check is not accepted for the final payment, unless mailed 3 weeks in advance. If you have already named your new little bundle of joy, we will gladly start calling your puppy by his/her name.
What is Puppy Pick Day?
When you place your reservation fee, you reserve your "spot" or time for Puppy Pick Day. This day will be scheduled well in advance and posted on the website. On Puppy Pick Day, each family has an allotted "time with the puppies" (in the order of deposit). This can be done in person, by video chat/face time or I can send you real time videos of the available puppies. If video chatting isn't for you, no worries! I'll send the videos along with new photos- during your time frame, to share with your family. We can talk about doodles, personalities and coat types and discuss anything you'd like! This is a time for you to get to know the puppies!
Your puppy will be ready to join your family at 8 weeks of age. Flight nanny travel or long distance pick-up arrangements can be made in advance for an additional fee. Nanny Service fees are $650 & up. We schedule a courtesy meet-up and delivery day in St. Louis, Mo; Brookfield, MO; Quincy, IL; Burlington, IA-based on our schedule-at no additional charge.
Pick-up or delivery is required at 8 weeks of age, unless previous arrangements have been made. If you have enrolled in the "IDOD STAR Puppy Academy", your puppy will remain with us until 12 weeks of age. You may schedule a visit around the 8 week mark to meet, play and snuggle with your new bundle of joy!
'I Dream of Doodles' will load you up with some essential items to get you started. No worries! We want this to be a time of pure enjoyment for you, not a time of stress. We pack you puppy's bags with their own Snuggle Puppy, collar/leash, food scoop, food sample and other supplies & goodies-that will be ready for you. See Puppy Package & Pricing for a full list of items included in the Complete Puppy Package. Ready to shop? Our favorite supplies can be found here.
Health Guarantees :
Your puppy will receive a Healthy Puppy Guarantee and a Two Year Genetic -Health guarantee. We stand behind this- as our moms and dads have been genetically tested and we know their background. We do require you to take your puppy to your vet for a check-up, within 5 business days after pick-up, in order for this to be activated. We do not anticipate any issues with any of our pups; however, if a fatal genetic illness/death does occur, we will replace your puppy with a puppy from an upcoming litter.
