AFTER YOUR PUPPY DEPOSIT – PUPPY PICKUP DAY AND OUR PICK PROCESS

Louie - Mini Aussiedoodle from Dreamydoodles Northwest

Thank you for your puppy deposit/payment. You’ll also be recieving a confirmation email from Paypal – please keep this for your records. Please let me know if you have any questions about your deposit or payment.

PUPPY DEPOSITS & APPLICATION

Please remember to fill out our Puppy Application – if you haven’t already. Once we receive your deposit and application – your name is added to the litter list you picked on the deposit form. If you have not spoken to me yet, please text me or call me so I can make sure I’m putting your name on the right list and we have everything we need. If we’ve spoken before but it’s been awhile – please just text me to let me know you made your deposit. This is an automated email.

IF YOU’RE BUYING AN OLDER PUPPY

Pick order and pick day most likely won’t pertain to you since it’s usually only one or two puppies we have left.. but everything else below still applies.

PUPPY PICK ORDER & PICKUP DAY

Picking out your puppy from the litter is done when the puppies are 8 weeks old and it’s done preferably in person and done in the same order that we recieved the deposits, to make it fair.

First deposit gets first pick, second deposit gets second pick and so on.. each family will be scheduled for a private 1 hour appointment (in order) to meet the puppies and make their picks.

In order for everything to run smoothly on pick up day we ask you to please, be prepared and arrive on time – we usually schedule our appointments back to back, so, if you’re late then it can cut into the family’s time after you or cause you to loose your pick spot and we want everyone to have plenty of time with the puppies.

WHY DO WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE PUPPIES ARE 8 WKS TO PICK? AND HOW DO WE PICK?

We breed our dogs with a heavy focus on temperament and a lot of our families get our puppies for therapy or service work so temperament and a good match is VERY important. This puppy is gonna be with you for many years and at 8wks their temperaments and personalities are more developed then they are at 4 or 6 wks and we’re able to give you more feedback based on our observations of each puppies energy level, temperament and how they handle new situations by 8 wks. 

Puppies change so much from week to week and even change more after they’re seperated from their littermates and no longer living life based on the hierarchy of their litter – puppies personalities are shaped by their life experiences – so the older the puppy the better when it comes to choosing a puppy. 

THE PICK PROCESS – PICKING OUT YOUR PUPPY

We usually do a simple process of elimination – it can be pretty overwhelming if we leave the whole litter in your lap. It’s fun for a few minutes but then it just makes it much harder to focus on any one in particular so we take the ones you for sure don’t want into the other room so you can focus your attention on picking from the ones you do like the best.

Sometimes that cute puppy who’s acting quiet and shy or sleeping in your arms during your hour long visit..might also be the one whose been bouncing off the walls for the past 4 wks and is just taking a break or acting shy meeting a new family..if you’re looking for a more mellow puppy then that’s not gonna be the puppy for you – we’re here to make sure you pick the right energy puppy for your lifestyle and you can’t always tell that much in the short period of time you get to spend with them so please take our advice to heart when picking, we’ve been doing this a long time and have raised lots of puppies and our motives are the same as yours..to make sure our puppies are going to the right match family and a forever home.

ONCE YOU PICK..

Once you make your pick – we discuss the first few days home, their feeding schedule, vaccines, answer any questions and then we sign copies of our 2 year health garunttee and spay/neuter contract, you’ll get your puppy pack, vaccines records and then we’ll say our goodbyes! 🐾

We’ll always be here for advice and training tips for the life of your dog and we hope you’ll take advantage of our help or at least stay in touch for years to come.

THE CAR RIDE HOME

Bring a friend or family member with you to hold your puppy on their lap on the way home, they do best on a lap versus a crate for the first few car rides – also bring some paper towels and plastic bags just in case the puppy gets car sick (this is pretty common).

FOR OUR OUT OF STATE FAMILIES

If you’re out of state and can’t be here on pickup day then we can still help you pick out your dream puppy with the use of videos, pictures and our personal observations and guidence.

PUPPY TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS

When you’re out of state there’s a few options for transporting your new puppy home which we will also discuss with you on the phone if we haven’t already. We can ship your puppy or use a flight nanny service that flys your puppy to you as a carry-on or some of our families have flown here, meet us at the Portland airport and then flown their puppy back home with them as a carry-on.

WHAT DOG FOOD DO YOU FEED THE PUPPIES AND WHY?

We feed all our puppies the Life’s Abundance – “All Life Stages” formula. It’s the best dog food we’ve found and over the past decade we’ve probably tried 90% of the highest rated dog food brands and even our picky, elderly Poodle gobbles this food down and thrives on it! 

YOU MUST ORDER LIFES ABUNDANCE ONLINE

DOG FOOD TIP: If you can buy a dog food brand at the grocery store..then it’s usually a medium to lower quality dog food.

WHICH SIZE BAG OF FOOD SHOULD WE BUY? HOW MUCH DO THEY EAT?

A 10 lb puppy will eat 1½ cups for a whole day – which should be split up into 3 individual feedings.

We recommend you buy the 20 lb. bag, which will last approximately 49 days. If you go on autoship, we recommend the 7 weeks autoship frequency. You can always adjust the autoship frequency if needed. Autoship makes it so easy and you also get a discount!
