The ProcessHow to become part of the Australian Sheepadoodles Australia Family
The time will come when you realise that your life just isn’t complete without a Sheepadoodle …
Applying to join the Australian Sheepadoodles Australia Family
You are required to answer a questionnaire and fill in an application form. Your application will then be reviewed, and you will be informed if we feel a sheepadoodle is suitable to your lifestyle and that you are ready for the commitment of owning a puppy/dog in general.
Once a successful application has been received you will then be given a member’s login to allow you further access to puppies we have available or may have coming up.
You have two options in your application: Puppy Application Now or Waitlist.
Both must be approved prior to membership being awarded.
Puppy Application Now
Non-financial member. You will be granted access to puppies ready to go now, or in a short time frame. You will be granted 3-6mths access. If you have not selected a puppy within that time frame, you will be asked to reapply for membership. However, once you have selected your puppy, you will also be granted access to additional information available to our members. Upon discovering your newest family member, you will be asked for a $1000 securing deposit for your puppy.
All deposits are non-refundable though transferable to another puppy with us within the next 12 months.
Puppy Application Now
A Waitlist is a financial member, as a member you will be given access to all the puppies we have available and coming up you will be notified via email when a new litter has been posted. You will be permitted ongoing access until your ideal puppy becomes available. Your membership is $500 and this amount comes off the final cost of your puppy, so that there are no additional costs. To secure a puppy, it will be an additional $500. Once you have selected your puppy, you will have ongoing membership access to additional information.
Waiting for your puppy to come home
You will be sent a photo update of your puppy fortnightly.
At 7wks your puppy will have his/her vet check, desexing procedure and be vaccinated.
If your puppy is coming to you via road or air transport the final balance of your puppy will be requested a week prior to your puppy leaving us.
We allow people the opportunity to come and meet their puppy between 6-7 weeks of age. This means that puppies are up and walking and old enough to socialise. They will have also had their first vaccination which is an important step in protecting their health. You can arrange a mutually convenient time to meet your puppy once you have placed the security deposit.
Unfortunately due to COVID-19 restrictions, visitations are unavailable for the foreseeable future.
We will be revising visitations in 2022.
During this difficult and challenging time, we are happy to arrange FaceTime appointments with your puppy upon deposit of your chosen puppy.
Thank you for your understanding.
Once the deposit is received, we do not require final payment until pickup. In instances where puppies require shipping, we require final payment for puppy plus the transport the week of delivery. Once flights are booked (usually 5 workings days before the date of the flight) we will forward you the booking confirmation and request for final payment. The funds will need to be cleared into our account before we will ship the puppy.
We understand people are sensitive around payments to an unknown source given there are many internet scams circulating in today’s world. We welcome all questions and can be contacted by phone to ease any concerns you may have.
