Puppy Pick-Up Process and What to Expect Each Week!
The Missing Piece To Your Family Puzzle!
Process For The Upcoming Weeks!
We wanted to make all of our Families aware of what to expect in the weeks to come. From the time your precious puppy is born until pick-up day! At Chilliwack Labradoodles, one of our favorite days is Puppy Pick-Up Day. We fall in love with our puppies and truly want only the best for each one of them. On Pick-Up Day we know the puppy is ready to move on to the next chapter in their lives and are privileged to witness the joy and excitement of this union. Normally we enjoy inviting our families into our home re-introducing the puppies to them and going over the Puppy Folder and any questions you may have. With the uncertainties of COVID-19, we have had to adapt some of the processes including our Puppy Pick-Up Day protocol to ensure the health and safety of our puppies, dogs, and families.
First Pup Date: Honeymoon Announcement. Once the Momma of your litter has cycled/honeymooned you will begin to receive regular Pup Dates. Each Pup Date will contain information pertinent to the age and stage your litter is at. Topics that cover such things as preparing to bring your Labradoodle home, feeding, potty training, exercise and crate. You will receive pictures of the puppies and some videos.
Second Pup Date: During the Momma's last month of pregnancy we will send you your second Pup Date.
Birth Announcement: Exciting Picture of Your Litter! The first payment of $1,430.00 is due.
Week 1: Please follow our Facebook and Instagram Page as we randomly post puppy information and pictures
Week 2 Pup Date: Regular Pup Date, will provide you with Puppy Pick-up Date!
Week 3 P: Please follow our Facebook and Instagram Page as we randomly post puppy information and pictures
Week 4 Pup Date: Each of our families will receive a Questionnaire via email with your Pup Date. It is important that you complete the questionnaire as thoroughly as possible and return it to us. This questionnaire will be an important piece to our Puppy Assignment process.
Week 5: Please follow our Facebook and Instagram Page as we randomly post puppy information and pictures
Week 6 Pup Date: Your final payment of $1,430.00 is due
Week 7 Pup Date: You can expect to receive this Pup Date midway through week 7.
Each family will receive information about puppy pick-up including their Puppy Pick-up time.
The "Big Reveal," this Pup-Date is a most anticipated one as each family will find out which puppy will be their forever fur baby! You can expect a video reviewing what is included in your Puppies Personal Folder.
At the time of your Pup Date we will forward you Chilliwack Labradoodles Health Warranty and Bill Of Sale via Email. We ask that you read through your contracts, email us with any questions you may have, and send the completed contract back to us.
The seventh week of life is an exciting and busy one for both ourselves and our puppies. Your Pup Date will not be sent out at the beginning of the week as you have been accustomed. Your will receive your Seven Week Pup Date mid week. During the puppies seventh week they will need to have their Puppy Check at our Veterinarian, each puppy's final formal puppy assessment will be competed for our Puppy Assignment, after we have received this information we review everything we know about each puppy and each family then allocate each puppy to their forever family.
At this time we will send you your first "Puppy" Picture along with notification as to which puppy was the great match for your family!
Week 8 Pup-Date: Puppy Pick-Up Day!
Process To Follow On Puppy Pick-Up Day
The highlight of this process is your Puppy Pick-Up Day.
Pick-up day is a very busy day for your puppies.
They start off their morning with breakfast and playtime.
The puppy will have had lunch prior to your arrival.
Your puppy will be bathed.
Your puppy will be placed in a sterile x-pen area until it is time for her scheduled pick-up.
When you are approximately 10 minutes away from our residence we ask that you text us your full name and the ribbon colour of your puppy.
Each of your puppies will have had their microchip implanted in the back of their neck. We have our own microchip scanner and rest assured we will have scanned each puppy prior to their departure.
Your puppy will be placed in a sterilized enclosure either a crate or x-pen safely on our front lawn.
Upon arrival please park in our driveway.
In front of the enclosure, you will find a sealed bag containing your Puppy's Personal Folder and hand made no-sew blankets with Momma Clover's scent. This bag will have been sealed shut for a minimum of one week.
We will be standing an appropriate "social distance" away during this entire process.
We will introduce ourselves and you are free to pick-up your puppy and its bag.
During puppy pick-up, we always like to take a photo of our fur-babies with their new families. If you could kindly gather just outside your vehicle for a quick photo with your puppy we would appreciate it.
Each family will have their own pick-up time. It is important that we all try to be as punctual as possible, not arriving earlier than your scheduled pick-up time. This will help ensure no unnecessary social contact.
The above is a quick overview of what you can expect in the weeks ahead. Of course, we will continue to provide you with information relevant to bringing your puppy home.
