Poodle Owners - please share your puppy buying experiences with us with our new visitors! The Testimonial Section of the website allows you to upload your Feedback directly onto the website, but does not allow photos.
Got photos to share? The Feedback Section allows for both photos and longer emails/letters - but you need to email them to me first, for me to upload onto the website for you.
Visitors be sure to visit both pages to see what our Puppy Owners have to say and see pics of the poodle kids at their new homes...
Love what you see but the time is not right, or your preferred baby just got snapped up by someone else???
Subscribe to our website - this will put you on my update list for new litters, announcements and the occasional special sale or price reduction for that "last pup from a litter" that is not mentioned on the website!
No strings attached, your information will not be sold, when you are no longer looking - simply unsubscribe.
How much deposit is required to reserve a pup?
Deposit is usually 50% of the purchase price and are generally not refundable unless something is wrong with the pup. Please go to the Deposit Page to have a look at a sample contract and to familiarize yourself with it before reserving a pup!
There is a pup on your website that says "Pending". What does that mean - is it sold?
Pups listings that say "Pending" or "On Hold" usually have either a deposit in the mail [snail mail] and I will need to make time allowance for that payment to reach me, or I have a definite pick-up scheduled within the next few days without a deposit. About 90% of the time, that pup will be reserved or sold within a few days, but every once in a while there will be a no-show or cancellation. Feel free to ask or request an update on this pup to double check on availability. Pups that say "Reserved" have a deposit received and are no longer available - and no - I won't sell a pup that has a deposit to another person, even if you offer me extra money for it.
Do you take checks?
Sorry no more personal or bank checks. Cash only at time of pick-up for the remainder of your balance or the full purchase price for a pup ready to go. Deposits and Installment Payments may be made via Paypal, Mobile Phone Paypal, US Postal Money Orders, NetSpend and Only1 Reload Packs, as well as Moneygram [Walmart] or Western Union. For more detailed info on payments, pls go to the Payment Page.
Can I make several smaller payments instead of one or two big ones?
Payment Plans are generally available on pups under 5 weeks of age - the amounts and frequency of payments depend on the purchase price and the age of the pup. If you want to do this, the sooner you reserve your pup, the more time you will have for smaller installments! If you need more time than that, ask me about upcoming or planned litters - I can give you an idea when we have new babies and you can make as many small payments in advance that you are comfortable with, and then choose from a new litter once they arrive.
Pick-Up, Delivery or Meeting, Shipping.
Use this zipcode to pull up directions to Lyons GA, just outside of Vidalia . If you are majorly from out of the area or out of state and are driving to pick up, I will gladly offer as usual to meet you along the I 16, I 95 or I 75 corridor = halfways or oneway up to 100 miles for me. I need you to work with me on scheduling though, as I work most weekends. During the week is always easier for me, as I can set my own schedule then. I have an entire page devoted to this information - please click here for more info!
Are your puppies AKC registered?
Lately I get this question quite often - so I rewrote that section on my website and made a separate page for it - look for the answers here.
It's so weird - dogs are always nicknamed companions - but yet - these days many don't ever leave their house or yard. I remember when I was growing up [yes - I know that dates me, LOL], dogs were full members of the family and used to go places with us.
Grocery shopping [being tied in front of the store while we were inside shopping - and none of them ever got stolen or messed around with either!]. Running errands and paying bills. Visiting friends at their places. Going to restaurants, cafes and pubs for meals, drinks or entertainments. Fairs, parks, ralleys - dogs used to be true companions when I was a kid.
Nowadays - not so much, but recently more efforts are being made to make having a dog with you in public acceptable again. Here are some of the products that can make it possible to smuggle a dog into places where they would otherwise not be welcome, and to keep them safely with us not only during leisurely strolls, but also cardio exercises, walks, hikes and jogging and during driving in the car.
If I were to recommend anything in particular - I would go for a car seat first, and a soft sided carrier second, especially for puppies and small breeds. The rest are convenience items for most of us, but definitely make dog ownership in public more acceptable for most other non-doggy peeps.
A carseat where the pup can be harnessed in, can reduce distactions while driving, messes in the car when you are not looking, and keeps from developing bad habits that may cause you to have an accident, because your furkid is all over the car while you are driving...
A dog stroller or back pack can come in handy if you are a very fast or active walker, jogger or hiker, and your pup is not big enough to keep up yet [or will never going to get big enough to do so, even when fully grown] or if you own a senior canine that simply can't move that well any longer.
If there is one thing about dog owners that we all dislike, is when folks walking their dogs, let them go all over our front yard, drive or walk ways, or god forbid - into our flower or veggie gardens.
Be kind to your neighbors and be a responsible dog owner!
If your dog goes potty anywhere else but your own yard, clean up after it. This can go from a small shopping baggie in your jeans pocket to purchasing a small container of "doggie baggies" to clip on your leish, key ring or purse...
