HOW TO RESERVE A DOODLE
1. APPLY FOR A DOODLE
Apricot Roots Doodles invites you to complete and submit our online application for consideration.
Submitting an application does not guarantee your acceptance or commit you to anything. It simply starts the conversation with us.
2. RESERVATION DEPOSIT
Once your application has been approved, we will invite you to place a reservation deposit. We will send you an email with instructions.
The $250 non-refundable reservation deposit to reserve a puppy goes towards your total payment.
Your place in line will not be reserved until the reservation deposit has been paid. As breeders, we reserve the right to first, and sometimes 2nd pick, from any litter born, regardless of reservation order.
The remaining balance will be due in cash only on puppy pick up day.
3. PICK YOUR DOODLE
Families will choose their puppy in the order their reservation deposit was received. If the remaining puppy/puppies don't suit your needs, you will be added to a reservation list of a future litter.
Families will virtually choose their puppy at 6-7 weeks of age and take them home between 8-9 weeks of age. As much as Apricot Roots Doodles would love for everyone to meet and snuggle with their puppy as soon as possible, there are just too many diseases that could lead to the death of puppies and we aren't willing to take that risk.
4. GOTCHA DAY
Puppy pick up day is usually on a Saturday or Sunday. Apricot Roots Doodles will contact you a week in advance to schedule an appointment time to pick up your puppy.
Apricot Roots Doodles will not ship our puppies. If you can't pick up your puppy on the scheduled date, we charge an additional $25.00 per day to care for your puppy. This will need to be arranged at least a week in advance.
