Deposits are non-refundable, unless I don't have a puppy for you. If you put down a deposit before the puppies are born, and there is not a puppy born to fill your request, you can either have your deposit refunded, or apply your deposit to the next available litter.
(Please note that Great Lakes Goldens reserves the right to first pick (male or female) from any and all litters!)
We take deposits two ways:
1) Wait list deposit
If you would like to reserve a puppy before they are born, a $100 wait list deposit will be required (if using PayPal, please add $3 fee). After the puppies are born, and I confirm that I have a puppy for you, a second deposit of $150 will be required (if using PayPal, please add $5 fee). Total deposit $250.
2) Deposits after puppies are born
A $250 deposit is required to reserve a puppy. (If using PayPal, please add $8 fee)
The total price for our puppies is $950
The puppies will go home the weekend after they turn 8 weeks.
Puppies are picked out in the order that deposits are received. For example if you have 2nd pick female, you will come pick out your puppy before the person who has 3rd pick female. You will be given a specific time and date to come pick out your puppy and take it home. Do not be late! If you are late, you will forfeit your pick order, as I will not make the next person in line wait on you. All pick up times are Central Time.
On pick up day, you will have a chance to see mom and dad, then I will take you to the puppies. You will be required to remove your shoes and put on crocs provided by me before entering the puppy room. You will also need to use hand sanitizer.
Visitors are allowed by appointment only. You are welcome to come see our adult dogs and our facilities, but you will not be able to visit the puppies before pick up day. This is to keep the puppies safe and healthy, as that is our first priority.
*Please note that due to the pandemic, we are suspending all visits to our facility, except for those coming to pick up a puppy*
We offer shipping to the contiguous United States. The price for shipping is $425. This covers the air fare, crate, vet visit, health papers, and our gas to the airport (2 hrs one way). Puppies cannot be shipped until 8 weeks of age. We ship typically on weekdays in the afternoon. You must be available to go to your local airport on the day and time we select for shipping.
*Please note that due to the pandemic, the airline has suspended pets flying in cargo. This means that arranging pick up for your puppy will be up to you. Some airlines allow the puppy to fly in cabin with you if you wish to fly here to get your puppy, and then fly back home with the puppy. We will resume offering shipping as soon as the airline allows it again. Thank you!
We offer a 1 year health guarantee against congenital defects. The guarantee can be extended to 2 years with the purchase of NuVet vitamins.
The puppies will go home the weekend after they turn 8 weeks old.
All puppies are sold with AKC limited registration papers. This means pet only, no breeding or show (except for agility).
The puppies will have their first set of shots and be dewormed a minimum of 3 times. They will go home with a puppy kit including a sample of the food we feed (Purina Pro Plan Sport), and a sample of the NuVet vitamins. Your puppy will be microchipped. Please register your puppy's microchip as soon as possible.
