"The Fine Print"
There will be no surprises for you. It's in black and white!
Completing the application is the first step in the process of acquiring a puppy
from Echo View Dalmatians.
Find the application here.
We reserve the right to refuse the sale to anyone.
a) Approval and Deposit:
Upon the receipt of the completed Application and 3 reference letters
they will be processed in order they are received.
If I feel your home is a good fit for a Dal puppy your application will be placed into the future puppy folder.
If I feel that a Dal puppy is not the breed for you, I will notify you
and I will help you in choosing the right breed for your life style.
When we know we have puppies on board, via ultrasound,
that is when we go through the applications and we will contact each applicant
to confirm they are still on board for a puppy.
if so, that is when the Non-Refundable Deposit is requested.
This deposit Locks in the asking price what ever it is at that time.
If the applicant is not ready then the application is moved to the next planned litter.
All puppies, both the show and the pet quality puppies are sold on
contract and the buyer will be asked to read and sign it.
c) Registration Papers:
Each puppy will be registered with the Canadian Kennel Club
and when all conditions in the contract are met then the puppy will be signed over to you.
The puppy will be sold on a Non-breeding contract.
Show/breeding puppies are sold on a Show/breeding prospect contract.
The contract states to wait till at least 9-12 months of age,
but it has been proven that the longer you wait the healthier it is for the Dog
as they require those related hormones for growth.
Questions? Let's talk.
e) Picking your puppy:
Please read 'So you want to pick your puppy' here.
f) Home Time:
At the time of whelping we know when the puppies will most likely be
ready to leave the nest. Please plan accordingly!
We will not hold puppies for several weeks after 8 weeks.
It is critical for their social development that the litter leaves within a reasonable time frame.
Do not expect us to board the puppy and without being fully vaccinated no reputable
boarding kennel will take the puppy.
