Waitlist Information

The waitlist process in general can be confusing, but this document talks about the waitlist and probably answers all of your questions about it (Sorry it is repetitive). You can of course ask any other questions and will have opportunities to do so throughout the process. 

1. Application  2. Approval  3. Proposal  4. Waitlist

  • After you fill out an application your application is reviewed and either approved or denied. 

  • In the approval email we specify a timeframe in which you may get on the waitlist. The timeframe is the earliest waitlist opportunity we have available. (For Example: If we say you are approved for Winter 2022 that means the timeframes before Winter 2022 have full waitlists, so winter is the earliest we can get you on the waitlist.)

  • The waitlist is an ever changing document for us, but we do get applications in everyday. So just because we send you that timeframe one day, doesn't mean it will hold you a spot in that timeframe. 

  • Along with the approval email we will send you a proposal. The proposal includes a waitlist contract and a deposit payment (taken via credit card). Once you have signed the waitlist contract and paid the deposit then you will be placed on the waitlist.

  • Only a signed AND paid proposal will get you on the waitlist. 

Your Puppy:

  • We want you to get the puppy that you love. color gender everything. That is why we allow you to pass. We can't allow you to pass into the next timeframe though because it messes with the list. If that worries you because you are low on the list fear not we have planned for that too! That is why we also have the rule that you can only pass 3 times. We will keep that in mind if you are low on the list. 

  • We do not take deposits based on gender or color 

    • You choose your puppy, so you choose color and gender. If the color or gender is not available when you are contacted then you may pass on that litter 

  • Merle - chocolate - tuxedo - they are rarer color combos and therefore we cannot guarantee we will have them in the timeframe that you were placed in (or that you chose)

  • When it is your turn to pick we will contact you and have you look on the website at the pictures of the pups. Generally, even if you are low on the list there will be several to choose from. Even sometimes from different litters. We make sure you have options so that you get the pup you love.

Timing:

  • You are most likely going to be contacted early. We under estimate so as not to run short on puppies that means we will be contacting the next list for puppies. That is why it is important to be specific about timeframe so if you are wanting one later we do not contact you until you are ready. 

  • We will tell you the earliest possible timeframe, but if that is too soon let us know and we will put you on the next list (or the next list) We like early planners. 

Timeframe:

  • You cannot pass beyond your timeframe 

    • Spring: March - May

    • Summer: June - August

    • Fall: September - November

    • Winter: December - February

  • We always under estimate the amount of puppies we will have so you will get a puppy if you are on that list for a specific timeframe 

  • The more specific you are about the timeframe you are wanting a puppy the less repeated texts you will get 

Passing:

  • When it is your turn to pick we will contact you and have you look on the website at the pictures of the pups. Generally, even if you are low on the list there will be several to choose from. Even sometimes from different litters. We make sure you have options so that you get the pup you love. If you do not like any of the ones currently on the website then you can pass. You cannot pass more than 3 times without forfeiting your spot. You also cannot pass beyond the timeframe you are listed in. Some people pass because they do not have the color preference they want, but it also considered a pass if you are contacted and are not available to pick a puppy at that time, or if you have a vacation planned or something along those lines. It will not be considered a pass outside your timeframe if you are contacted before your timeframe and decide to wait till your timeframe. That is why it is important to specify your timeframe in communication with us. 

  • We want you to get the puppy that you love. color gender everything. That is why we allow you to pass. We can't allow you to pass into the next timeframe though because it messes with the list. If that worries you because you are low on the list fear not we have planned for that too! That is why we also have the rule that you can only pass 3 times. We will keep that in mind if you are low on the list. 

  • You can only pass 3 times before you are removed 

  • We can't allow you to pass into the next timeframe though because it messes with the list. If that worries you because you are low on the list fear not we have planned for that too! That is why we also have the rule that you can only pass 3 times. We will keep that in mind if you are low on the list. 

Honeybook

  • We use a system called Honeybook to manage applications, contracts, and communication. The Puppy Application is done through Honeybook and once you fill it out that is where we go to find it. We will be sending you all the communication, proposals, approvals through Honeybook which will come to your email. It does go to your promotional or spam folder, so make sure to keep checking there for our responses. We can see your application and will respond as early as we can. Our response will come to you as an email, but then you can sign in to Honeybook and see all the communication there. You can feel free to ask questions via Honeybook. They have an app if that would be easier for you! 

  • The nice thing about Honeybook is that you can continue to upload documents like your first vet visit paperwork and your spay and nueter paperwork. That way it is all stored in the same place as your contract. It makes viewing it for us much easier.
