It may take 6-12 months for us to have a suitable puppy for your consideration, because we are dealing with Mother Nature
I wish I could meet the demand for Bijou Poodles more quickly, I really do.
I realize it is stressful for people not to be able to nail down a time frame for their pup's arrival and have to be on a wait list.
But there are reasons my Poodles have become so popular: they are beautiful, they are healthy, and they have great temperaments.
That is not just idle bragging; every single day, I get emails telling me about how much people love their Bijou Poodles.
Most photos and comments you can see on our reference page and our Facebook Album titled Brown Adults and or Red Adults
which is spanning over 15 years (well only since we got internet)
I am also always at the mercy of Mother Nature.
Dogs come into heat only twice a year "usually". Even when they do come into heat, their litters may be smaller than hoped
or we may get all of one sex.
When a large litter arrives and thrives, I rejoice, but it may not produce exactly the pup you have requested by way of sex or size.
When your number comes up, and the litter has not produced a puppy you wanted
OR a litter will be ready to go home during shipping Embargos and you require shipping, you may be out of luck at that time.
It is worth waiting to have the right puppy because this Poodle will be with you for the next decade.
The few months to a year you might have to wait for that perfect Bijou Poodle, is worth it.
Eventually, nature will produce a pup to your exact specifications.
Of course, If you can be flexible, on sex of puppy or you have the ability to pick up puppy in person
and drive or fly back with puppy, chances are good that your number will come up faster.
So, while the wait may be long, I am hoping that my puppy people understand
that I am breeding the very best Poodles I can in terms of health, brains, ability, looks, color, pedigree and temperament.
All the time and work that goes into producing a quality pup will pay off
when our puppy people me their long-awaited pup exceeds their expectations.
And while the wait may be frustrating, it does allow people to think about their decision very carefully.
Getting a puppy is a major life change, and not something to be done on impulse.
During the wait for your Bijou Poodle, you can do some reading, find a country Vet (large animal vet)
and find an AKC/CKC Club or trainer, research which Pet Insurance you will get, obtain some necessary supplies
and figure out exactly how you will handle your pup day to day.
I will say that people appear to be far better prepared now for their pups than they used to be.
So the wait has had an unintended upside!
Non-refundable, means, that if you change your mind about purchasing a puppy that you requested at any time
you loose your $200.00 non-refundable deposit.
I view a deposit as a sign of a commitment to me that you want a puppy from me
and are willing to wait as long as it takes for a Bijou Poodle puppy to come available.
I base the number of breedings each year on the deposits we have, so that the number of pups I produce
never exceeds the number of approved homes I have waiting. I want to be certain that all my puppies have good homes.
Making deposits non-refundable, also encourages people to think long and hard
about whether getting a puppy is the right choice for them, before taking the step and getting on the waiting list.
When a litter is born and thriving, we will contact people on our waiting list in the order in which
we received deposits. As each person responds, we add their name to our Litter's Page and continue down the list.
You may turn down the offered puppy/Litter for what ever reason, however you will loose your deposit.
When you confirm acceptance of an offered puppy, we will send you, your Litter's web page
which will contain links to online information, updates, and usually weekly photos and or videos of the pups
until you can safely view your puppy and your puppies litter in person.
We hope to have our puppy people feel very involved and included in their puppies lives, from birth forward.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE "SUBJECT" LINE in any emails once you have been assigned a litter.
We do get around 300 emails a day pertaining to everything "dog" that we are involved in.
The subject line indicating the mother of the litter aids me in instantly knowing you are a priority and not spam.
With everyone also using iPhones and such, we also ask that you only use "1" email address, again to save confusion.
in order of preference (pups wear different color collars)
Using that information the puppies are allocated by us, to families
also based on preferences identified in the application form and suitability of the pup to the family's lifestyle.
Most often people will get a puppy they selected in their top 3.
Puppy's assignment will be displayed on their puppy page similar to the following so everyone knows which puppy is theirs:
Brown Male - Green Collar to Donald G. - Quebec (own Archie)
Brown Male - Blue Collar to Richard and Karen M. - Florida
Brown Male - Red Collar to Gayle & Art E. - Ohio
Brown Female - Gold Collar - Keeping
Brown Female - Peach Collar to Laurie R. - MA
Brown Female - Black Collar to Mellisa C. - Owen Sound, ON
Brown Female - Pink Collar to Jeri M. - Studio City, CA
Brown Female - Grey Collar to Christine G. - Dundas, ON
Brown Female - Lime Collarto Jill A. - Burlington, ON
Brown Female - Mint Collar to Trish W. - Riverview, NB
Brown Female - Purple Collar to Brian R. - London, ON
People put a deposit on one of our pups, based on the looks, health and personality of our Poodle parents.
You can view up to date video of each of our Poodle parents (something most breeders don't offer)
so what you see in videos and in photos of our Poodle parents, is what you will be getting.
The foundation we lay for our pups, is a combination of both parents looks and personalities and health
which is proven through their officially earned Titles in almost every dog sport there is
Their health is also proven through their passing over 12 health clearances which are
accessible to verify on the OFA Health Data Base
an online web page which is available 24/7 as well as a link to testing on each Poodle's web page.
Bijou Poodles don't just "say" we have "all that" we prove it conclusively through expensive testing and provide proof.
Don't ever just take a Breeder's word for it, ask for tangible proof !
I will not be describing all the personalities of the pups, because frankly it means nothing, beyond that moment.
All the pups will have the same sweet confident natures of their parents,
99% of how they mature when they leave us, is totally up to the new owners
Owners either keep our pups on the course we lay for them to be confident, loving good members of their pack
or create little out of control terrors. The end result is totally up to Owner's skill level and their commitment to training.
And lastly but ultimatly, it never fails that despite all the personality testing, feedback we used to offer,
(which x 10 pups took hours and hours) it never failed that people just ended up
selecting largest to smallest sized pups 100% of the time. So now we pick assign our pups to homes
based on feedback stated on their puppy application.
This process of puppy placement, has earned us the special respected reputation we have today
and many happy families around the world, including many Special Needs homes.
You can read about on our Poodle placement success on our Reference page.
Families selection will then appear on their puppy's web page.
We will accept "6-9 Advance" $200.00 non-refundable deposits on "anticipated" future litter(s).

5. At about 5 weeks of age, We ask everyone to send us
their puppy selection
6. Just before 7 weeks of age, the pups will be microchipped and we "used to" vaccinate.
More recent studies indicate first shots should be given at 9 weeks of age because pups have immunity from mother.

Puppy pick up day. People may get to meet Mom, Grandparents, Siblings, Aunts
7. Our pups go home at 8 weeks of age by people picking up
or having them Shipped to a location we can ship to. Shipping is an additional cost
(this includes travel, documentation and cage size: 28"L x 20.5"W x 21.5"H) paid by purchaser, by using our Paypal page
however, we will arrange shipping for your convenience. We are restricted on where we are able to ship to
The cage that puppy arrives in (which is yours to keep) will fit the puppy for a few weeks after arrival.
If you are picking up in person, we arrange one day, on the weekend for pick ups and the time is between 0930-11:30am
We have a web page for travelling to our home we will send out that week.
Travelling should NEVER be during commuter times and is best done on the weekends.
If you are flying in to pick up your puppy the closest airport near us, is Buffalo, NY Airport - BUF
If you are in Canada flying in, there is Hamilton Airport which is usually empty and clear of traffic
Toronto airport is a major city and is bumper to bumper traffic with road closures do to accidents ALL the time
It is around 1-1.5 hours drive to our home from Toronto (pending on time spent at the border crossing)
but with the traffic can be up to 3 hours, though seems to be cheaper to fly into Toronto.
8. Puppies come with a life-time support agreement from us and must be returned to us if you can no longer keep your dog.
