Frequently Asked Questions
Question: How do puppy picks work?
Answer: Picks go in the order of deposit and they start at about 4-5 weeks of age. I will contact the first family on the list and as soon as they pick a date and time or make a pick I will let the next family know so they can make plans. You don't need to make a pick in person. We will do what ever we need to do to help you make a pick. We can help with extra pictures or video just let us know what you are looking for. We don't rush picking the process but please be aware all family's are just as excited as you are and we can't have one family hold up the rest. This is how we choose to do picking and has worked out very good.

Generation Scale: For Miniature Golden Doodles
(F1) First Generation: Golden Retriever to a miniature Poodle.
(F1b) This is called a (Backcross) A First Generation Mini Goldendoodle bred back to a Poodle. (most times this gives a more curly coat and less shedding to all). Weight is around 15-25 pounds when mature.
(F2) A First Generation bred to Another First Generation still maintaining the 50/50 mix.
(F2b) also called sometimes (F2bb) This is a second generation Goldendoodle. This again is a Backcross of A F1b Mini Goldendoodle back to a Poodle or (F1B X F1 = F2B) (even less shedding in most). This is a more hard to find and our smallest more like a petite Goldendoodle.
(F3) The third generation Goldendoodle (F3) is produced by crossing a F1 with a F2B or F1B, F2 with another F1B or F2 Goldendoodle. We have also heard these called American Goldendoodles. They're like the F1B's and will have a higher success rate for non-shedding.
A real Goldendoodle is a mix of ONLY of Golden Retriever and Poodle not all breeders are use these breeds only. They still call them Goldendoodles and a lot of times they use other breeds to make them smaller we don't agree with this.
A real Goldendoodle is a mix of ONLY of Golden Retriever and Poodle not all breeders are use these breeds only. They still call them Goldendoodles and a lot of times. We breed naturally only. Some br
Coats can be straight, wavy, curly or a mixture and change as they age. Colors may be black, white, apricots, golden creams, reds or chocolates also changing with age.
Most puppies will have their dewclaws removed. This is most often performed around 2-5 days of age. This is to prevent the loosely attached dewclaw from catching on furniture, carpet, etc. resulting in damage to the toe.
They will be vet checked minimum of twice all vaccinations will be up to date. Vaccinations at most vets are 6,9,12 and 16 weeks.
We take a group puppy pictures at the time of birth of the girls and of the boys. About one week after we take individual pictures we have this schedule as the pigment color of the nose and feet change from all pink to what ever it will be. We wait to take the next set of pictures till eyes open on all of them and they are clear. This is about two weeks after and some video also. We have a reason when picture are taken and when and have found these are just the best times. All picture will be posted on the website so please be patient.
I accept the following payment options:
1.*****CASH is always welcome if you live near or for final payment for pick up. Please make arrangements for this a (ONE) week prior to pickup.
2.*****Postal Money Orders: This is the least expensive transaction as long as time allows and is preferred payment method. By sending overnight and providing a tracking number the pup of your choice will be placed on PENDING and marked SOLD on receipt of payment.
3.*****Wal-Mart money grams: are not very expensive and is located in most areas .......
4.*****PayPal : www.paypal.com With a credit card or a paypal acct. I simply send you an invoice so that we both have record, this is easy, safe and secure. Paypal does charge an acceptance fee and I do require the buyer to cover that. I will charge a additional fee of 3% for deposit and final payment if you use papal. PayPal charges a fee for receiving money so we pass this on.
5.***Western Union very expensive and locations are sometimes hard to find. I do not accept personal checks,or bank transfers. I require a $200 NON REFUNDABLE deposit to hold your choice puppy and the remaining balance 1 (ONE) week prior to shipping or pickup. Full payment must be received before final shipping arrangements are made. If you have additional questions regarding payment info.
Please contact me.
The fee to ship your puppy via air to you is $450. This includes the flight, crate, health certificates from our vet that are required by the airlines and transportation to the airport.
We also offer to deliver your puppy for a fee of $75/hour each way. We can meet you half way or deliver your puppy to your door. We will use google maps from our address to your preferred destination to figure the time. This delivery service will be provided at our availability and discretion. It must be paid for in full at the time of final payment (ONE) week prior to shipping. Most Chicago area locations are $300.00.
We use Delta and shipping is a one day service.
Our Precious Cargo leaves out of Bloomington (BMI) airport it is 3 1/2 hour round trip from my front door. This is the only airport we use no exceptions. We get to the airport 2 hours early for a smooth check in. Departing times are depending on seasonal weather, in summer month's we take really early am flights to avoid heat and winter month's we take late morning flights to allow for temps to rise. Each pup is shipped with a complete Veterinarian Health check an Acclimation stating at what temperatures the animal can endure for short periods of time, this is usually temps between 20* and 85*. USDA regulates no puppy may ship at less than 8 weeks of age, and without climate control, that any where along the route if temperatures are above 85* or below 30* they may not ship. Safety is of most concern and it should be.
Ship dates are made no more than 2 weeks in advance. I normally do not have flight numbers and times until a week or two before the ship date. Due to concern of our National Security the service they provide is a blessing, without it as individual shippers we would have to endure extensive time consuming security searches each and every time we ship. They screen and re-screen and take the responsibility on their shoulders to allow me to spend my time on more important things (our babies).
To make correspondence easier we request the following:
Full name/s of anyone picking up the puppy.
All contact numbers cell/home/work for you the day of shipping.
The closest Major Airport nearest to you and the letter Code for that airport.. Example: DFW SAN etc.
When you receive notice from me about flight information you will see the following:
AIR WAY BILL # Very Important
Flight #'s and times
**Please be sure that you take this information with you in case there is a need to track shipping or to inquire about pick up. You will also need to have with you two forms of ID.
It is a good idea to call the airport to find out where they prefer you to pick up your puppy, lobby / luggage / cargo. Every airport may be different, but most Delta require you to pick up in the terminal at the baggage claim office. They will also require the above information. But please do not contact them until after departure time which will always be CENTRAL TIME. If you do they will not know anything until that cargo is boarded.
Puppy Purchase and Health Agreement
Puppy Purchase and Health Agreement
This puppy is guaranteed to be in good health to best of my knowledge at the time of this sale, and has been examined by our licensed veterinarian at least twice. This puppy has had its first set of shots and dewormed. You will get a up to date record of your puppy's shots at pickup/delivery. This does not mean this puppy is immune to diseases. Therefore you, the buyer, are responsible to maintain your puppy,s continued vaccinations and to also do on a yearly basis according to your own vet's recommendations. Failure to complete rest of the puppy or normalÂ shots will void the warranty.
As a buyer, you have three (3) business days from the day of purchase to have this puppy examined by your own licensed veterinarian if you wish to choose to.

"I WILL DO EVERYTHING WITHIN MY POWER TO BREED YOU A GOOD PUPPY, IT IS UP TO YOU TO RAISE A GOOD DOG."
We DO NOT guarantee color, temperament, coat, levels of shedding, bite (under/over) or size of puppy. If you are a first time puppy owner please be aware of "normal" puppy behaviors such as ...chewing, nipping, jumping, running, barking or periods of high energy as these should never be considered a fault. With maturity of the dog, proper training, patience and commitment from you....these undesirable behaviors will soon pass with proper training and you will have your perfect family companion!
Pet ownership is a serious commitment. I would gladly take back any of our puppies at any time for any reasons with no questions asked. However, I will NOT be refunding adoption fees or any other fees for any reasons other than serious health issues of the puppy that must be documented by your vet with all test performed. Please carefully consider your decision to adopt and your ability to care for and raise a puppy in a loving home.
