We maintain one master wait/reservation list, in order by the date the puppy reservation form & fee were received. When a litter arrives, clients will be contacted via email, in order of deposit date, with basic litter information and availability. Response is required within 72 hours to confirm if you'd like to hold a spot in that litter, or wait for a future litter. Clients will not be removed from our master list until they take their Independence puppy home.
For the first 7 weeks of life, clients can watch the puppies in their selected litter grow & develop via our Facebook page & their litter's private Flickr album. At 7-7.5 weeks old, a trainer will temperament test all puppies within the litter. Those evaluations are recorded and provided to the clients committed to that litter via our private YouTube channel. On "Puppy Go Home Day," (when puppies are 8-9 weeks old), clients will visit with their favorite 2-3 puppies from temperament videos, make their final selection, & take their puppy home.
*Independence Poodles maintains the right to first pick in each litter
Limited AKC registration (spay/neuter contract) is $2000 plus TX sales tax, regardless of puppy color or sex. We require a $300 reservation fee to hold a spot on our waitlist, with the final balance due at puppy pickup.
Full AKC registration (breeding rights) is offered on a case by case basis, to only those breeders who meet our standards for health testing, puppy curriculum, & temperament evaluations. For inquiries, please email a thorough description of your program & breeding goals, as well as vet and personal references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
