At Rockwall Doodles families choose their pups and leave with them the same day. Picking order is based on the order reservation fees were paid and we utilize a master list for our future puppy families.
After an application is accepted, we discuss paying the $300 reservation fee. Once a non-refundable reservation fee is paid you will be added to the master list.
When we have a confirmed pregnancy we will contact people in order that reservation fees were paid. We will give you the information about the parents, due date and anticipated go home date as well as your position for picking order.
You will have 2 days to decide if you want to be placed on the litter list offered. If you do not want to be on that litter list you simply will remain on the master list and be contacted when our next pregnancy is confirmed. You move up the master list as people receive their puppies.
The only way you are removed from the master list position is when you receive a puppy.
Please note that I have the first 2 spots on EVERY litter. Nobody is ever first or second pick except me.
Every list will start with #3
**If any person chooses to change their mind once placed on the litter list and wishes to wait for a future litter, (Removing them from that particular litter list) the choice to fill their spot is mine! I may simply move everyone up a spot or I may fill that spot with someone that needs a service dog, ESA or other situation based solely at my discretion.
When you place your reservation fee, you are acknowledging your understanding of our master list system.
You will not know which pup is yours until 8 weeks! At that time you will choose your puppy based on your position on the Master List.
At Rockwall Doodles we do puppy evaluations at 7 weeks old. This information helps us understand the environment each puppy will thrive in. We will pass on this information to everyone that has paid a reservation fee.
Each person will be able to analyze the information and use it as part of the information to choose their puppy. Allowing us to match the best pup for your lifestyle.
At your appointed time (at 8 weeks old) you will let us know what pups you are interested in from puppies that are available. We will give you our opinion and help guide you to the best fit for you and your situation.
The person that has toddlers would definitely need a different pup than the person that wants to go hiking every weekend or the person that wants a Therapy dog.
We ask all potential Rockwall Doodles parents to keep their hearts open to all colors, coats and gender of the puppy you want to have join your family.
Decide what are your must haves in a puppy and what you are flexible on. We know and understand what environment our puppies will best thrive in.
If you do not want any of the pups that are available than we can move you to a future litter.
We will explain why we feel it’s not a good fit and also what we feel can be done to make it work to get the best life for our pup in your home.
Our belief is that there is no ‘best’ pup in the litter, rather the best pup for each family, their needs and their situation.
When I asked my family and close friends that knew all our pups which one they would pick, surprisingly, it was different for each person for various reasons.
When someone chooses a puppy based solely on color/looks they are not thinking of the puppies needs.
I am! My job is to find the right family for each of my pups.
