Our primary goal at Dixie’s Doodles is to breed healthy puppies with wonderful temperaments. All of our puppies are whelped and raised in our home, where we have an active and nurturing environment.
Puppies grow up around normal household noises, such as conversation, laughter, vacuums, dishwasher, television, music, and more. They walk on as many surfaces as we can provide, including grass, decking, and interior floors. When outside, they play in tunnels, wading pools, and other equipment specifically designed to help puppies learn and grow. They travel in the car to go to the vet. We try to ensure that your puppy has had the best preparation possible for life with a new family and away from mom and littermates.
The process works as follows: Families place deposits of $200. When a litter is born I send out an email announcement to everyone on my waiting list. The waiting list is constructed from the responses, and the selection order will be in the order deposits were placed. I confirm with everyone who responds and let them know if they made the waiting list for the litter, where they are on the list, approximate going-home day, etc.
Every week thereafter I post photos and send out a newsletter. The newsletters cover the puppies’ development along with puppy preparation for the families, such as crate types and size, grooming tools, feeding, books to read, recommended trainers, etc. I try to make the wait fun and informative.
At the bottom of each newsletter is a list of important dates, most importantly “Meet the Puppies Week”. When the puppies are six weeks old, my vet examines them and gives them their first set of shots. Then the families may visit and select their puppies. Puppy selection is done in the order deposits were placed.
You may switch to any other litter at any time. If the litter is not yet born, the selection order remains in the order deposits were placed. However, if the litter is born and the waitlist is confirmed, you would take the next available opening..
Unless otherwise specified, all of my puppies are $2750. The fee for your puppy includes the following:
Accepted forms of payment: credit cards, checks paid in advance, cash
