Standard Poodle Puppy Application

I have owned Standard Poodles since 1967.
Owning, loving and working Standard Poodles is my Passion
and I hope you will also enjoy sharing your life with a Standard Poodle.

After I receive your application I review it.
At that time if I have any questions or concerns I email you for clarification.
If you are "approved" then I will either let you know what month to get back in touch with me
OR I will send you are paypal page, for you to make a deposit or purchase with.
If you are NOT approved I will reply to you and let you know why you are not approved along with
some suggestions for alternate breeds or perhaps just even a way to better prepare yourself for a working dog or puppy later down the road.
Please keep in mind that I ONLY have our puppies best interest in mind and of course I want you to be happy with your puppy as well.
I will not push a puppy onto you if I feel that you will not be a good match for one of our pups, or we do not have what you want.

We do not keep your application on file . It is up to "you" to get back into touch with us,
if you see a litter or puppy advertised on our web page
that you have an interested in.
We have such a high volume of interest in our pups that it would be impossible for us to keep track or in touch
with everyone expressing interest in obtaining one of our future litters, when they have not put a deposit.
Especially with the occasional computer issues we run into.

Only those with a deposit on a puppy will be contacted for any availability.
After you have sent a deposit we have 12 months to offer you a puppy.
If we do not have a puppy for you during 12 months time, we will refund your "non-refundable" deposit.
If you request a refund we may comply minus the paypal fees.
After you have put a deposit, if you have any questions or concerns along the way ASK US, before assuming anything.
I'm very quick to respond and answer any and all questions 24/7 Mon-Thurs.
Weekends we are not working we are away at Dog Sport Events with our fur kids Thursday to Monday
without internet service and will respond when we return home

This questionnaire is given to all prospective puppy buyers.
It brings into perspective the various requirements of both the puppy and his new owner.
It serves as a guide to help us choose the best possible puppy and or litter that will best suit your lifestyle and needs.
There are no right or wrong answers.
We ask each applicant to answer the following questions as completely as you can.

We expect that everyone that is filling out our Application and especially those that send us a deposit
have fully read and in agreement to our CONTRACT
