Puppy Selection Process:

Our goal was designed to ensure the process would be simple to understand, easy for us to utilize, and fair to our clients interested in getting a puppy from our farm.  We have spelled out in the following description of choices for our clients, to decide how much and when you would like to being involved in the initial selection process.  We will do our best to describe how the process works, and then provide descriptions and meanings of each choice for you, so there is no confusion as to what is meant by each choice you have.


Names and numbers for the WAITING LIST.


Deposits for a specific litter, gender, color, size, etc.


Birth of the puppies, we give "HEADS UP NOTICE" to all clients on the waiting list & those with deposits.


Photos  of the newborn litter are taken/updated on website & emailed to clients.  


Group and or individual photos of the puppies are emailed to clients with deposits.  
Clients with deposits in the order received have first choice to SELECT PUPPIES from PHOTOS, if they desire to do so.
For those clients requsting us to pick for them, we will do so. 
If there are more than one client wanting the same puppy at the same time, the client with deposit paid first will get that puppy. 
Some clients will choose to wait to meet the puppies at 6 weeks, chosing from remaining puppies not yet selected. 
We do not keep other clients from selecting puppies if another clients chose to wait to meet the puppies before picking their puppy. 


We will then post individual photos on the website, then anyone is allowed to choose a puppy or place a deposit on ANY puppy that has not yet been chosen.
This includes our waiting list people with no deposits, new clients and any clients who previously placed deposits but have not chosen yet.
If those on the waiting list with no deposits select a puppy, they will need to pay their 1/2 down deposit, in order to hold the puppy.

Micro Chipping:


It is an extremely good idea to permanently identify your dog with a tattoo or microchip.  Microchips are the most popular form of permanent identification.  The chip is injected like a shot, just under the skin, between the shoulder blades. The chip can be read at any vet office or humane society.  It is used to identify your puppy/dog when found or provide proof of ownership.  It does NOT hurt your puppy/dog, although sometimes it startles them while we are putting it in.  We do this here at the farm, it is like getting your ears pierced and only takes takes a few minutes. We offer all of our clients microchips. Your veterinarian can also do this for you.  

Picking up Puppies: 

Final Payment or full payment is due at time of pick up of your puppy.  You will receive your puppies shot record/bill of sale, health guarantee, a puppy packet, getting started hand out.  


The above policy is that of Canyon Meadows Farm and is subject to change without noitce.
