A $500.00 non refundable reservation fee is required to be placed on KBD's waitlist. Prior to taking a reservation fee Kelly @ KBD will contact you once your puppy application is submitted to discuss any available puppies, planned litters, pricing and any other additional information. KBD strives to place puppies in homes that meet our loving standards. Once your puppy application and reservation fee have been received, you will be placed on KBD's Master Waitlist. The waitlist operates on a first come, first served basis. You will be assigned a number based on the order that your reservation fee was received. Puppy selection goes in order and Kelly will contact you when your litter has been born. KBD reserves the right for 1st pick of each litter for 3/17 Korte Bernedoodles Breeding Program.
Buyers on our waitlist are invited to come to our home for a visitation when puppies are 4 weeks old and 8 weeks old. Puppy selection happens on "Go Home Day." At 8 weeks old, puppies have been seen by our veterinarian and have undergone puppy evaluations. At KBD, we believe in the value and power of allowing Buyers to make an informed decision based on the Badass Breeder Scorecards for aptitude testing when puppies are 8 weeks old. In order to get the most accurate results, KBD completes puppy evaluations between 50-53 days old. This process ensures KBD is meetings the needs of both the Puppy and the Buyer.
Puppy Selection always happens on the Saturday after the puppies are 8 weeks old to accommodate all families traveling from out of state. All evaluations will be emailed to the Buyers in the 7th week prior to Puppy Selection Day to allow Buyers time to reflect on which puppy would best fit their needs. KBD will give suggestions on what we feel would match the Buyers needs, but the final decision is up to the Buyer. KBD encourages Buyers to have a list of their top three puppies for Puppy Selection Day. Buyers will be given a 30 minute time slot based on the order of their assigned number on KBD's Master Waitlist to choose their puppy. Families will then be able to take their puppy home.
We try our best, but can not guarantee colors or genders of expected puppies. Our main focus is to breed healthy, happy, and well-socialized puppies. Their beautiful colors and markings are a bonus!
KBD will post pictures of puppies at 1 week, 3 weeks, 5 weeks, and 7 weeks. Please 'like' and 'follow' us on our Facebook page @ 3/17 Korte Bernedoodles and on Instagram @317kortebernedoodles to watch these puppies grow!
