Frequently Asked Questions
Hey You! ...... YES, You!
The family that has been waiting for their new addition to be born,... we see you!
We know you're excited!
We know you have ants in your pants to be the first to know when they have been born, or want to see photos of your puppy on a semi-daily basis. we understand your excitement.
Please understand that there are 8 to 10 other families that feel the exact same way you do.
That is the reason we have made ALL updates, photo, and video sharing easily accessible on our Instagram: Instagram.com/lkbernedoodles
We have done this so you can see video and photo updates as soon as they're available.
This makes it not only easy on us but easy on everyone.
It allows you to see behind the scenes, how our dogs interact, how our dogs are treated, baby growing videos, and puppy age updates.
So we ask,... PLEASE..... be patient and know that the moment we have an exciting announcement it will be available on Instagram instantly.
(you must follow our Instagram to see our daily storyline)
P.S. Please don't Text or Email specifically asking for updates.
Are the Reservation fee or PIF fully refundable or litter transferable?
Our reservation fees are non-refundable, but litter transferable.
PIF payments are refundable, except for the $500 reservation fee.
Are we allowed to come to visit and choose our puppy in person?
Not at this time.
We have "puppy pick up" at our Director of Training's home in Creswell, OR.
We do this so we try and limit disease/risk to puppies as much as we possibly can.
We do a lot of facetime and Instagram to show families our puppies' temperaments to help guide them in the picking process.
What do puppies come with?
Puppies go home with:
a binder of their Veterinary records, and helpful reading material.
puppies leave appropriately vaccinated (never Lepto)
one dose of REVOLUTION (administered)
few sample baggies of NUTRISOURCE LARGE BREED PUPPY
3 days of Nuvet wafers
are you ready?
Below you'll find a helpful timeline and checklist to make sure you are fully prepared for your new family member to come home.
Once your puppy has been Born:
Think about whether you want to do extended training or if you would like to pick up your puppy or have them delivered. At this time you know that in 9 weeks your puppy is ready to come home and things like booking a flight are less expensive.
At the time your puppy turns about 4 weeks old is a perfect time to start preparing, by making sure you have their food, probiotics, a kennel, and other essentials. That way anything that needs to be shipped will arrive in time.
When puppies turn 6 weeks is a perfect time to call your local vet and schedule your puppy's first vet visit.
These three steps make pick up day or delivery go incredibly smooth.
