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.
Suitable for: teacups, tinies, toys and small or younger mini size puppies.
I strongly recommend a childrens or puppy playpen for safe keeping in combination with pee pads, newspaper or litterbox potty training. It will safely contain your pup when you are busy or working, or if it needs down-time away from the busy family life. It's mobile and flexible and can go places. Easy to clean and looks so much nicer than a metal crate!
There is a lot of information about utilizing a puppy playpen on my Teacup & Tiny Puppy Care website already. Instead of repeating myself here - simply go there to read up on it.
Suitable for: toy and mini size puppies.
A play yard or exercise pen is more suitable overall for larger or older toy size pups and for miniature size puppies [roughly 8-20# range]. Many poodle children have the monkey gene incorporated, and will eventually start climbing on playpens, or chew and tear through the mesh panels in their mission to get to you, LOL.
Play yards and ex pens are usually made of hard plastics or metal, and more durable to withstand the onslaught of an eager poodle pup on the quest of exploring the home when you are not there.
This containment system works similar to a puppy playpen, and is optimal for working or busy puppy parents that need a potty training solution like paper or pee pad training, while they are not at home.
There are a variety of styles available - and also a large price range to match your budget. Keep in mind the more time your pup needs to spend in it's contained play area, the better quality it should be. Also consider the flexiblity of uses available - some can be reconfigured and taken apart and used as gates and gate ways.
Suitable for: older puppies and adults, regardless of size.
A plastic or wire crate works great for older pups [4+ months] and/or adults to help with housebreaking, riding in the car + vet trips and at home containment.
Please keep in mind that if you are crating, you need to offer frequent outings for puppies so they can go potty - it is not suitable to start young pups in a crate, that may have to go pee every 30 minutes or so, and expect them not to soil in the crate if they are stuck in there for hours and hours without a chance to come out and go potty in between.
Adults that are crate trained, can hold it up to 8-10 hrs and more - but that is when they are fed and watered appropriately on a schedule, and have a chance to fully relieve themselves before crating. Also dogs that are crated throughout the day, need a chance to exercise, run, hop and skip when they are out - a play yard or expen allows some of that freedom during the day while you are not at home, a crate does not.
Caution: If you are crate training and the pup spends considerable time in the crate, pls remember to take the collar off when the pup goes into the crate or use a break-away type collar, you don't want the pup to get stuck or hang up and choke to death while you are not there.
