Welcome to Little Teton Doodles!
Thank you for allowing us to help you find the perfect furbaby for you and your family! Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our process so you know what to expect when you work with us.
Step 1: Join Our Interest List
Join our interest list to be notified about upcoming litters. During this process, you will be directed to a form that will ask what breed, size, and gender of puppy you are interested in. Filling out this form will enable us to notify you about upcoming litters that match your interests. Please note that our interest list is not a waiting list and is not based on the order people joined the list. We also recommend following us on Instagram and Facebook.
Step 2: $500 Deposit
When an upcoming litter matches the breed(s) you are interested in, you will be notified through email that our puppy applications are open. This email will give you the opportunity to place a $500 deposit to reserve a puppy on an upcoming litter. This deposit will put you on our application list, will go towards the cost of a puppy, and will bring you one step closer to adding a new member to your family. The deposit process will be done directly through our website and will be on a first come, first served basis due to limited availability.
We will collect a certain number of deposits per breed based on our best estimate of the number of puppies that will become available. Please note that placing a deposit does not guarantee you will get a puppy within a certain time frame due to factors beyond our control, such as female heat cycles, number of puppies born in a litter, or puppy size, gender, or color.
Deposits are non-refundable. However, if you place a deposit and we are unable to match you with the perfect furbaby from the litter, you will be placed on a waiting list for a future litter. We will do our best to match you with the perfect pup within one year of placing your deposit. Please note that by placing a deposit on a puppy, you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.
(Please make note of the username and password you create when you make your initial deposit on our website because you will need this information again in the future.)
Step 3: Pick a Puppy / Final Payment
After a litter is born and the puppies reach 5-6 weeks in age, a temperament and personality test will be completed. At that point, we will notify the people on our application list (i.e. the people who have made a deposit) about the puppies that are available.
Once you have reserved a specific puppy, final invoicing and contracts will be emailed to you. Final payment for your puppy, as well as signed contracts, are due at this time.
Please note that breeders have the right to keep any puppy for future breeding from any litter.
Step 4: Arrange to get Your Puppy Home
Now that you have picked a specific puppy and your final payment and contracts have been received, it will just be 2-3 weeks* until your puppy can go home with you! We will be in contact with you about your puppy’s exact “go home” date, as well as to discuss arrangements to get your puppy home. During this time frame, we will keep you updated with pictures so you can watch your puppy develop and grow. We will also send you links of some of our favorite items to purchase in preparation for your new puppy!
(*Micro and teacup size puppies may need more time with us before they can go home with you. If this is the case, we will let you know.)
We recommend using a puppy nanny to transport your puppy to your local airport. These are a couple of puppy nannies that we recommend:
- Air Buddies – Julie, 801-230-1859
- Paws on a Plane
You are also welcome to fly to Salt Lake City, Utah to pick up your puppy. We will meet you at the Salt Lake City International airport.
Once you have decided how you would like to transport your puppy, please contact us to coordinate dates and times before scheduling.
Step 5: Welcome Your New Furbaby!
The process is now complete and you have an adorable new puppy and family member to love!
