Completing this application is a step in the process to acquiring a puppy from Cloud Nine Doodles, but it does not guarantee I’ll get a puppy from this or any future litter; the breeder reserves the right to refuse any placement at any time.
By filling out this application form, you agree to the Terms and Conditions below.
APPROVAL AND DEPOSIT: I will review applications within 2 business days of receipt. Applications are processed in the order they are received. If your home is a good fit, I’ll notify you. We breed infrequently, so we will only accept deposits when puppies are expected or actually available. During pregnancy, approved homes will receive a link to make a nominal commitment deposit on a puppy, and links will be sent out in the order approved applications were received. Please make this deposit within 48 hours of the approval e-mail. If you make a deposit, you are committing to take a puppy from the litter, however if your color preference is not available, the deposit may be held over to a future litter.
YOUR PICK OF PUPPY: Puppies will be assigned in deposit order by the first or second preference of the depositor as indicated on the application at seven weeks of age. If neither of your choices are available, you may elect another puppy from the litter. We ask that you make a choice within 24 hours of notification since there may be other families waiting for a chance to choose. Should you elect to not take a puppy from the litter, you may choose to await a forthcoming litter or the deposit is forfeited. You should review both the deposit policies and pick of litter policies on our website for any updates.
GOING HOME: We cannot hold puppies for extended times; it is critical for their social development that the litter departs within a reasonable timeframe. If you have a big vacation planned or have events that would conflict with a young puppy, please know puppies cannot be boarded in a kennel until they have received their full immunizations and their rabies vaccination which cannot be done until four months of age. If the puppy is not picked up within two days of the scheduled pick up, daily boarding fees will be assessed in the amount of $25 per puppy per day. This must be pre-approved with the breeder.
CONTRACT: We have a contract which can be viewed on our website. We will not place a puppy without a signed contract. We believe it’s the professional thing to do to memorialize our obligations to each other on paper so there are no questions later, and for that reason it’s a bit lengthy. If you have questions about specific terms, you need to contact us prior to picking up your puppy.
SPAY/NEUTER: We require spay/neuter at or before 12 months of age. We will pay for $150 of the surgery which is the cost at our highly recommended clinic, Whatcom Veterinary Hospital in Ferndale, Washington.
REGISTRATION PAPERS: Our excellent family companions do not come with registration papers to any registry.
