Raising puppies is hard work. The amount of time we put into our dogs and their puppies is not even reflected in our prices. We spend countless hours educating ourselves with the most up-to-date information on breeding, whelping, and raising our goldendoodles, in addition to the endless clean up hours. Did I mention that raising healthy puppies is hard work?
There are back-yard breeders and puppy mills that will produce the same type of dog as ours, for a significantly less cost to you. Just keep in mind that a puppy that you receive from a puppy mill, will keep them in business and will contribute to the degradation of the goldendoodle's overall health. They are inbreeding, not testing for inheritable diseases, and keeping puppies and adults in deplorable conditions. Their adult dogs suffer a miserable life as they continue to produce puppies until well over their retirement age. Many spend their entire life living in filthy cages.
All our puppies are dewormed at 2, 4, and 6 weeks of age. We also inoculate our puppies at 7 weeks of age against Canine Distemper, Adenovirus, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, and Parainfluenza. They are also microchipped at that time. At 7.5 weeks of age and just before they are sent home, we have our puppies examined by our vet and a fecal float is conducted. If we have puppies that stay with us during extended stay, we will inoculate again at 11 weeks old. We believe it is ultimately our responsibility to care for any life we bring into this world until they are sent home with their forever families. This being said, we continue to care for any puppy that remains with us at the appropriate age to keep them in good health.
We are not your average breeder. We have worked hard to get blue ribbon certified with the most elite goldendoodle registration group, G.A.N.A. Our puppies will have Puppy Culture early neurological stimulation, critical socialization, and desensitization training sessions. We temperament test our puppies at 49 days old using much of the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Test as well as some testing from Avidog.
We have a solid 2 year health guarantee that we will extend to 4 years with the continual use of NuVet. We offer continual support throughout your dog's life and we have a return policy in our contract. If for any reason, you cannot keep your beloved goldendoodle, we readily and willingly will be glad to welcome one of ours back. This return policy does not mean we will refund you, but it does mean if you cannot take care of one of our dogs, we are here as a safe place for your goldendoodle. Life happens and since we brought a life into this world, we are here for him/her for his/her lifetime.
Deposits are $500 and are only accepted after your application is approved. The remaining balance is due on puppy pick up day or when the pup is 7 weeks of age if we are shipping (cargo shipping will only occur for extraordinary extreme circumstances). We accept Cash (preferred), Zelle, or a cashier's check made out to Timberland Falls Goldendoodles for final payment. (NO PERSONAL CHECKS FOR FINAL PAYMENT) Also, for a 3% service fee we will accept PayPal.
Deposits are accepted in good faith. The breeder is promising to hold a puppy of the buyer’s choice, and the buyer is promising to keep their part of the agreement and pay for a puppy. We’re one of the FEW breeders who offers a refundable deposit (minus an 8% processing fee, refund of $ 460.00). We want you to get a dog that is the best fit for your family, and we recognize that may well be through a Humane Society or another breeder. We understand that your plans may change after you’ve placed a deposit. So we’re happy to refund a deposit at any time for any reason.
DEPOSITS BECOME NON-REFUNDABLE ONLY WHEN:
You must inform us of this decision to postpone or fall off the litter's waiting list before the puppy is four weeks old in order to make the puppy available for other buyers. If you neglect to inform us prior to the puppy turning four weeks of age, your deposit will become non-refundable. Also if you are specific in sex, and color and you have placed a deposit on a litter prior to birth and we do not have a puppy of your specific choice, you can elect to be placed at the top of then next waiting list or again receive a refund. Your application must indicate that we do not have what you were seeking. Unfortunately we will not take your word for it, this is why an application must be submitted and accepted prior to placing a deposit.
*Please be aware that the price of our puppies may change in future litters.
