If you need further information, you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (951) 492-2375. Please try me through e-mail first as my phone service is weak. In your message, let me know what you are looking for as far as temperament, size, color, etc., and what kind of home you can offer them. I also need to know if you ever intend to breed or show your poodle in the future as otherwise, they come with limited AKC registration, and UKC only if specified.
Infrequently, I have adult poodles for adoption to pet homes. Let me know if you would like to be on that waiting list.
ORDERING: Please be aware that some poodle websites have an "ordering" page. It's not as simple as that. Not everyone can have one of my poodles. I will first need to see what kind of a perfect/loving home you can provide for one of my kids, uh, poodles. I also prefer to keep in touch with you with open, honest communication. This way you will get my help throughout the life of your poodle, and I get to see them grow up and share your stories. They'll always be my kids out there!
PRICING: I price my poodles according to size and color. Special price consideration is given to proven show homes. The average price for one of my poodles is $800 including AKC registration and my full health warranty which protects your investment. I have very high-quality pedigrees which go for much higher prices elsewhere. There is often a waiting list for red females as this is the most requested type. The teacup size (less than 4 pounds full grown) costs more for the extra time and special care they get. I also keep the teacup- size puppies longer, up to 4-5 months, before I allow them to go to new homes so I may acutely observe for any health problems. They are a bit more fragile in the beginning and so a higher risk. If something were to happen to them, I'd rather it be in my experienced care than with you. This will help insure you have a very healthy puppy. Beware any breeder selling or shipping younger teacup puppies. Please be advised that teacups are not to be used for breeding as it is dangerous to their health.
Puppies are transferred only when payment is received in full. We accept cash, cashier's check,
money order or Paypal.
SHIPPING: I only ship within the United States, not out of this country, and I prefer Continental Airlines as they have a specific "Pet Safe" program which handles the puppies with TLC (tender loving care) while shipping. The agents at the Continental counter know me and my poodle puppies, and I know they will be handled with loving care from the moment I pass them into their hands.
They are hand carried to and from the plane, and never are they left stranded on a runway or conveyor belt, and while on the plane they are placed within a climate-controlled cabin. I charge a shipping fee of $350 which includes the veterinarian examination, all appropriate vaccinations required to fly, veterinarian's certificate to fly, a suitably sized airlines-approved puppy crate, flight flight insurance and air fare.
A $100.00 non-refundable deposit is required to hold a puppy for you and exclude anyone else interested in that specific puppy. The deposit is given as a good-faith contract that I will not offer your puppy to anyone else, and you will not back out of your commitment. The only time a deposit can be refunded is if your puppies dies when in my home. Then you will have the option for either a refund, or the choice of another available puppy.
The balance is due prior to transfer. (Puppies are sold in the order of the deposits received.) Upon receiving either a deposit or a full payment we will create a written sales contract. This is required by California Codes, Health and Safety Code Section 122045-122110, which also controls all aspects of our sales.
Please be sure to read all the above and if you have any questions please let me know because the terms and conditions apply to all sales.
