What makes us so different than the rest? Lets find out...
All our dogs (females and males) are family pets. This word "pet" can be used so subjectively. When we say they are our pets we mean that they live actively inside our home, alongside us and our children. They eat inside, sleep inside and watch TV on the couch with us. Our home is kept clean and safe. We ALWAYS encourage prospective buyers to come visit with us in our home. Most, if not all, say they are amazed at the keep our our home, dogs and the puppies.
Vet refrences are always available and puppy buyers are kept up to date on their pups progress with pictures, extra cuddle visits and emails. We have a limited number of dogs in our home. We feel that a controlled number of dogs can provide all the attention and adequet socialization each puppy needs before they leave our home and litter mates. As alwasy, we recommend a few basic questions be asked to the breeder you have in mind. Remember, your new poodle or goldendoodle puppy will have come from this home, it matters..
1. Ask to see parents. If you can meet them that would be best. Temperment from the parents will almost always be passed down to your new poodle puppy. If the parents are extremely timid, scared, angry, agressive or seem sick that would be your first warning sign. Also, if the breeder cannot give you much information on the parents that would be enough for you to decide to walk away.
2. See where the puppies are kept. Mom should be kept close to pups and pups should smell clean and look clean. Foul smelling puppies or puppies that are kept unclean is not good. Mom should also look healthy and clean. Puppies learn so much the first few weeks. Puppies that are taught to potty in a certain area and to stay clean will continue that in your home.
3. Ask to see all the other dogs the breeder has. This questions is not always asked. A lot of breeders have dogs in runs outside. Some are well maintained and others are not. Please, never support a puppy mill. Ask your questions.
4. Ask to read their contract. A contract should be simple to read. Include any and all information on your puppy's health, future health and any guarantees the breeder makes. If you are getting a poodle or goldendoodle puppy with AKC, CKC, or UKC papers this should be stated. A breeder MUST ALWAYS GIVE A HEALTH CERTIFICATE!
5. HEALTH CERTIFICATE- this is always something I get asked a lot. What is a health certificate? Why do you need it? Who gives it to you? ect. All dogs in the state of Florida must be sold with a ACTIVE Florida health certificate. They only last 30 days from the date of issuance and must include the vets information, any shots given, negative parasite panals and any findings on the physical examniation. Not all vets can give these health certificates. This paperwork will be your protection and the protection of your breeder. It means that at the time of pick up, your new poodle or goldendoodle puppy is healthy, free of parasites and has had their first set of shots. These health certifications can be taken to your vet once you pick up your new poodle or goldendoodle puppy to ensure what our vet said was indeed correct.
6. Maintain communication. A good breeder will follow up with you. Offer advice with potty training, behavior issues and health issues. A breeder that is hard to get in contact with, doesn't give you their contact info or will not allow you to meet at their home is a warning sign.
Parisian Poodle & Doodles maintains an open door policy with all puppy buyers. We are transparent when it comes to all our puppies and we always welcome visitors! If you have scheduled a visit in our home please know that we will ask you the following:
~An active ID - we want to ensure our safety since we are opening our home to you.
~Shoes off at the door - Parvo and other viruses can be carried inside on your shoes. Our poodle and goldendoodle puppies health are our top priority. Please do not be offended if we ask you to remove your shoes at the front door.
~DO NOT visit other breeders BEFORE coming to our home. Not all breeders have the same standards of disinfection and cleanliness. That means that if they have a virus in their home or soil you can bring that on your shoes and that can be introduced into our home. Please helps us keep our puppies safe.
~ DO NOT bring your other pets with you to our home. We will not allow your pets in our home. Again, this is for the safety of our puppies.
~Children - I am a mother of young children. I have taught them to be gentle and caring for all our dogs and puppies. If you are bringing your children to see the puppies please know that we will not allow the puppies to be handled by children under 12 years of age and we request that all children refrain from screaming and running around, we want the new mommas and pups to feel safe and screaming can upset the new momma dog.
