PUPPY APPLICATION AND RESERVATION

All of our puppies are sold as family pets. We do not offer breeding rights. 

 

STEP 1

We require a phone conversation at the beginning of the reservation process. Please email your phone number to gatecitygoldens@gmail.com and we will schedule a time to speak one on one. We start scheduling interviews 2-3 months before our anticipated birth month.

STEP 2

Once we've established a connection and both parties would like to move forward with the process, we will email you a questionnaire and the information for how to pay the non-refundable $500 deposit. Names will not appear on the wait list until the deposit is received. The only refund available would be if the breeding doesn't produce a pregnancy. The remaining cost of the puppy will be due 1 week before the puppies are ready to go home.

STEP 3

After receiving your non-refundable deposit, we will place you on our waiting list. Waiting lists will be kept in a first-come, first-serve order. We do not reserve puppies based on gender. We will only take 6 reservations prior to birth. Once the puppies are 2 weeks old and thriving, we will open the reservation list for any additional puppies born.

STEP 4

PUPPY SELECTION! Once puppies have had their 6 week vet health check and first round of immunizations, we will invite wait list families to choose their puppies based on their place on the list. If visiting the puppies isn't possible, we will gladly Facetime or send videos to help you make that selection.

STEP 5

We require final payment 1 week prior to pickup. You can pay through Venmo or send a certified check at no additional charge, or through credit card with an additional 3.5%. If you found us through Good Dog, you can also pay through their protected payment service. The final payment will be minus the $500 deposit. We no longer accept Paypal, as their support of the sale of animals has changed.

STEP 6

Puppies will be ready to go home at 8 weeks old. We do not ship puppies, but can discuss possible delivery options, where available. We can keep your puppy through 9 weeks at no additional charge. Puppies who need to remain longer than 9 weeks will accrue a $25 per day charge, as well as the fee for the 9 week vet visit.
