|This information is for buyers both in-town and out-of-town. The
only exception to this is those people who choose to come to our
home to choose their puppy. Those people will fill out the same
information at that time.
|First and foremost, no deposit will be accepted on any puppy
without the following things in place first.
|The deposit on any puppy is $100 unless otherwise marked.
|We require a completed contract (click here) and telephone
contact with every person wishing to put a deposit on a
puppy. Just a short simple phone call to allow us to introduce
ourselves is fine.
|We must have your phone number, address and e-mail address
if you have one before we can accept any deposit. The reason
for this is to ensure that we can maintain contact with you in
the event that we need to get in touch with you. Also, this
information is required by CKC for us to keep in our records.
All of this information must be e-mailed or provided to us by
phone prior to sending a deposit.
|Please click HERE for Paypal deposits. It will take you to a
page within our website where you will be able to make a
payment through Paypal. You are not required to have, or to
open, a Paypal account to make a payment. You can choose
the payment you want to make from the drop down menu. If
you do not see the payment you wish to make, you can either
make two separate payments, or you can email us for an
invoice. Regardless of which method you choose, the total
payment will be the same.
|We no longer offer deposit pending hold on our puppies
without some indication that a deposit has been sent. The only
way to keep a puppy on hold to wait for a mailed deposit to
reach us is to send us a tracking number for the letter. We're
sorry for this, but we've just had too many people request a
puppy be put on hold waiting for a deposit that was never
sent. If a tracking number is provided to us, the puppy will be
considered "deposit pending" and will not be sold to anyone
else. If no tracking number is provided, the puppy will remain
available and may find his/her home with someone else during
this time. We are strict with this policy due to the fact that
very often we have more than one person interested in the
same puppy and it is unfair to keep someone else waiting who
wants the puppy if you are unsure. For this reason, we
recommend that you consider using Paypal for your deposit,
as it is an instant form of payment, completely secure and does
not require you to open an account of any type.
|Once your deposit is received, your puppy's picture will be
moved to the Watch Us Grow page. We'll send you an e-mail
with your new balance and any other applicable information,
and attached to this e-mail will be all the pictures we have
taken of your puppy since he/she was born. Then, each week,
usually on Sunday, we'll e-mail you an update on your puppy,
including the new pictures we took of him/her that week.
Deposits are designed to hold your puppy until he/she is ready
to go, or in some cases, for a reasonable amount of time to
allow you to travel to pick him or her up. However, once the
puppy is ready to go, if we are required to hold him/her for a
long period of time to accommodate the buyer, there will be a
$25 per week kenneling fee assessed at the time of pickup or
|VERY IMPORTANT: ALL deposits are
NON-REFUNDABLE. The ONLY exception to this is if there
is something permanently wrong with the puppy. In this case,
we will inform you immediately and give you the option to get
the puppy you chose, transfer your deposit to another puppy,
or choose a refund of deposit. In addition, this is the ONLY
time that a deposit will be transferable, meaning the deposit is
transferred from one puppy to another. This is ONLY the case
if there is something wrong with the puppy.
|If you are coming in from out of town, or if we are shipping
your puppy, we require contact with you several times
beforehand. We want to make sure either that we are home
when you get here or that you will be at the airport waiting for
your puppy to arrive. THIS IS MANDATORY for the health
and well-being of our puppies.
|WE RESERVE THIS RIGHT: Because the safety and health of
our puppies is at stake, we reserve the right to refuse shipping
or delivery of your puppy if you do not meet the above
requirements for contacting us. In this event, your puppy
would then become available for sale and no refund of deposit
will be issued. We are not trying to be ridiculous with our
requirements, but we will maintain safe conditions for our
puppies at all costs. Really, the only requirement is to keep in
contact with us. We do not require applications or references
like many breeders do. You show us that you are trustworthy
by keeping in touch and showing your concern for the puppy
you chose to bring into your family.
