A $300.00 reservation fee is required after you submit the puppy application. Once your application and reservation fee have been received, you will be placed on the waitlist of your choice. Each 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. We allow selections to be made after the puppies have seen the veterinarian at 6 weeks old. We prefer you come and interact and meet the puppies and also see the temperament test videos at 7 weeks old before making your choice but you are welcome to choose based on photos and videos. If the timing isn’t right for you, or the litter is not the size or color you want, just let us know. If you decide to pass on the particular litter you can be placed on the next waitlist of your choice. You can do this as many times as you like. However, if you move on to the next litters waitlist, you will go to the bottom of that waitlist, so as not to bump those who are already on that list.
We do this in an effort to be fair to everyone on all of our waitlists.
We at Walnut Tree, as breeders retain the right to occasionally hold back 1-2 puppies from each litter for our Bernedoodles breeding program.
We try our best but we cannot guarantee colors of puppies. Our number one goal is to produce healthy, happy, well-socialized puppies with wonderful temperaments. Their gorgeous colors are a bonus! Your time on the wait list entirely depends on your flexibility to criteria such as sex, coloring, and size of dog. For example, if you wish to select a Bernedoodle with distinct tricolor markings, your wait will be longer than the family open to any puppy from Walnut Tree. We do the Volhard puppy aptitude test at 7 weeks to help in predicting inherited behavioral tendencies and how the puppy will turn out as an adult. We cannot guarantee this either and we have been wrong. Some puppies have turned out to be therapy dogs when we predicted they might not be candidates. A lot depends on how this breed is raised and socialized. They all have great potential in therapy or service.
We will post pictures of puppies often on social media. These pictures are typically showcased on our Facebook page and Instagram page, so be sure to like us and follow along as they grow! We also send photos via text or messenger often to families that have already picked their puppy. We welcome video chatting with an puppy as well.
