Living out of area or out of state may make you feel disadvantaged in considering a dog purchase based on the information and photos that we provide on the website. NOT SO! First, we send photos through text and email of the available puppies for you to make your choice.  Secondly, once you make your choice we offer Facetime, Skype, and Video Chat so you can see the puppies as they develop.
We do not allow visitors to hold our puppies.  This is for the safety and wellbeing of our puppies since they are not fully vaccinated. Please understand. we try to return e-mails the same day, but we often write about the same pup to several interested parties. ALL pups are considered for sale UNTIL we receive a deposit.  We never play “games” with buyers. We are often asked to contact them if someone suddenly shows interest in a pup they are asking about. We tell everyone that we will not do this as we believe it is unfair to buyers. We have no need to use “pressure tactics” to induce a sale.
Sadly protocol rules are often the result of someone taking advantage!
Two buyers below should help you understand.

First Client:  “camping pup” obviously brings a lot of happiness to the family as the letter indicates. YET the owner refuses to pay the balance he owes on the dog. His check was invalid. When we alerted him to this he immediately promised to pay. We responded with a certified letter (which was signed for) and a self-addressed/stamped envelope. Multiple phone calls and emails have gone unanswered. There is NO confusion here, just dishonor!

Second Client: We sent this BLACK pup to Anchorage, Alaska. The buyer had earlier been taken advantage of by another breeder who promised a pup on a certain day but failed to deliver. Thus, not wanting to disappoint her kids again, she was eager to get our pup quickly. She pleaded that we rush the preparations for the sake of the kids. Her money arrived just before the pup was to be shipped. It was considerably short of the amount owed. She was alerted to the shortage and promised to send the money immediately if we would send the pup. We shipped as planned including a stamped self- addressed envelope for the balance. Nothing! We phoned and money was promised. Again, nothing! Phoned again and was told the check was in the mail. This went on for several months but the money was never sent. LESSON LEARNED!
Hi, Jaxson is adorable, very smart and fun, but very mischievous. We absolutely adore him! He is 12 lbs. (which is the weight you predicted). He loves to play. Besides, that he is perfect! We go for walks every day, which he loves and he sleeps with us every night. Jaxson loves to ride in the car (he has a car seat). Thanks for checking about my grooming question. I actually have just let his coat grow and it really isn’t too long. I trim his bangs and around his eyes. He loves being brushed. How are you doing? Let me know if you would like for me to send you any pictures of Jaxson for your website. Every once in a while I go on your website and look at the pictures of your new puppies. Pics are from camping in Yosemite and Crater Lake. Take Care, Chris M.

How to buy one of our puppies

PRE-DEPOSIT: A NON-refundable pre-deposit in the amount of $400.00 is required to be added to our Waiting List.  Inquire for details. INITIAL DEPOSIT: A NON-refundable deposit of HALF the value of the puppy (minus the $400.00 pre-deposit) is required to hold a puppy. WHY is the deposit NON REFUNDABLE? Once we have a contract in place for this puppy, it is taken off the website, is never shown to another potential buyer and is not mentioned during other sales. Your ownership of this puppy is protected and honored. The deposit must be in the form of ZELLE, VENMO, CASHIERS CHECK (MUST BE MADE PAYABLE TO Ashlee Thompson), or CASH.  Puppies are available for sale UNTIL we receive the deposit. ‘Overnight’ or ‘Priority’ mail Provides tracking and ensures your selection.
  1. The Final Balance (including Airline or Transport Fees)is due when the puppy is 6 weeks of age .
  2. Upon receiving your Initial Deposit you will be emailed a contract/receipt/guarantee for the puppy. You will also be sent our PUPPY GUIDE which includes a “shopping list” to help you prepare!
PUPPY GUIDE: what is it?

When you decide to purchase one of our puppies we immediately begin “your” training! We have spent the past eight weeks preparing the puppy to leave us, therefore you need to know what to expect and to understand how easy it is! PREPARING FOR PUPPY is just as important, as preparing to bring a newborn baby home. People are always more confident if they are aware and ready. This makes the transition comfortable for both puppy and new owner. There is a lot of information on this site but YOU WILL RECEIVE MORE that pertains to how we have raised your new puppy. This information will prepare you and help you in the weeks of training that follow. It is simple, step by step including photos!

The PUPPY GUIDE works best if you READ it!
We have had many buyers over the years who phoned within days with questions that were well covered in the material that was sent to them as soon as they purchased a puppy. Why it was not read is a mystery to us. The client who gave us a giggle was one that arrived from Las Vegas. We had been emailing for the many months that led up to her arrival to pick up the puppy. This included Q & A as well as puppy photo updates. She arrived; the puppy was put into her son’s arms. We asked if there were any questions or confusion.
She sarcastically answered, “What you feed her would be nice”! We were astounded. We asked if she had received the information that was sent. She said she had received nothing. We assumed there may have been a mistake, apologized, and ran back to the puppy room to get some food for her. While there, we pulled up her file on the computer. There with the contract were four information files sent to this buyer. We went back to her and asked if she had received the contract. She said she had. We told her that with the contract were several home preparation files. Clearly, she had not even opened them let alone downloaded them for future reference. Sadly, she is not alone. We have had this happen on many occasions.
SHIPPING: We ship from ONTARIO, California ONLY. We will ONLY SHIP to a MAJOR airport in your state. This is for the safety of the puppy. Airlines require pre-payment for shipping.
SHIPPING IS $700.00 (subject to change). This includes: a crate, insurance, and airport delivery to the airline’s cargo area. These items are something any buyer will do for their new puppy. Since it is mandatory, we do it for you. ALL shipped puppies require: veterinarian exam of puppy and a health certificate. Knowing a vet has been involved before you get the puppy is reassuring for every buyer.
Hi Ashlee. I want you all to know that our Schnoodle, Sherman, is honestly the best dog on the planet. From the second he arrived after the flight from California to Tennessee he seemed to love his new family and home. He never once cried those first few days. Sherman is very social; he loves people and other animals and is energized when company comes to visit. He is very athletic. We got the electric fence and he loves to run and play outside no matter what the weather. He is very smart and picked up on the fence right away so potty training was a snap. Sherman is very affectionate. He loves attention and affection but is not needy and enjoys being independent. All in all we hit a home run with this little guy. Take care.

Many out of area buyers would like to accompany their pup home. We use ONTARIO (ONT) airport ONLY for this service. There are a limited number of dogs allowed inside the plane so buyers must advise the airline in advance when booking the flight. You never leave the airport! For those coming across the country it will be necessary for you to have an overnight stay close to the airport. There are lots of nice hotels with shuttle service and this has worked well for many buyers flying too far to return the same day. We will explain times of arrival and departure so as to co-ordinate your flight with pup arriving at the airport.

This client flew into Ontario airport from Chicago. Ashlee met the plane, handed off the pup and off the lady went. It was a long day for her including changing planes with her new puppy.
Hi Ashlee, We made it! He was amazing the entire way. I don’t know what you do to train these puppies, but he is perfect! Thank you, Christa 🙂 TWO DAYS LATER: He is doing great! We love him already! We named him Norman 🙂 Hi Ashlee, We made it! He was amazing the entire way. I don’t know what you do to train these puppies, but he is perfect! Thank you, Christa 🙂 TWO DAYS LATER: He is doing great!

Home at last


Puppy lives in Southern California. Puppy needs to be in Phoenix—WHAT TO DO?

Phoenix is a 6 hour drive or a 1 hour commercial flight, OR if you just happen to be a pilot there is another option……>

This pup went to live in San Francisco. Her parents came in a special plane just to pick her up and take her home. She is pictured at the end in her vineyard loving the gorgeous view and her mom.

HOW DO I GET ON A WAITING LIST: Just Ask! We will send you the ‘Pre-Deposit’ contract.
You are excited; everything is ready at home but still no puppy! Many buyers purchase their puppy and must wait 8 weeks to bring it home. Although that is not a long time (in puppy time), it is for the new buyer. We understand this and because it is so common for buyer to be impatient, we must address a few things you may be overlooking. Puppy is a baby. As with human babies, they are easily stressed. Perhaps the single most important thing we do while raising your puppy is to make sure that we keep the stress level as low as possible. While you are waiting for your puppy to mature, we am giving shots and preventative medications. ALL this is very stressful to a puppy’s system, but it must be done. This is why they are kept warm, quiet and left completely alone. Their security is WITHIN the litter and we are relying on that to help them deal with the necessary medications we are giving them.
Enter eager buyer. In your mind, a short visit wouldn’t hurt the puppy. BUT consider your puppy, should you insist on a visit, will be taken away from the security of the litter so you can see him/her. You CANNOT hold or touch this puppy for obvious reasons. It is stressful and if your puppy is exposed to germs these will be transferred into the rest of the litter. And the other puppies in the litter belong to other buyers. You have been told and/or read that your new puppy should have smells from home. You would like to drop off toys or items with family smells to be put in with your pup. Again, stop and consider IF every puppy owner in your litter did this? Not only would we be cross-contaminating the litter, there would be little room for puppies! Your puppy IS taking the “smells of this home” with him/her. The PUPPY GUIDE helps you “duplicate” our puppy set up.
These puppies all share the same area. You can see we have lots of items to play with. Imagine if the owners of each puppy brought something to add to this! CROSS-CONTAMINATION would be the first problem, CONSTANT CLEANING of all these items to prevent health issues would be the second—–there is more but you probably get my point!
PHOTOS and FACETIME: the greatest change in a puppy occurs between birth to 3 weeks of age. This time period is similar to that of a human baby from birth to 6 months. From 4 weeks to 6 weeks, the puppy increases in size and develops more coat. We will set up Facetime at 3 weeks and 6 weeks of age.  We will send a few photos prior to the Facetime meeting. 
When we describe a pup as being a rich dark brown with “highlights” you can see it! OR HOW ABOUT “this pup has freckles on its’ nose!”
We hope that by addressing these common misunderstandings you will understand that everything we do is for the well-being of the puppy. We have invested in their care day and night, and made an ongoing and serious effort to protect your puppy from everyone and everything that may cause it the slightest bit of stress.
If some of these things never occurred to you, YET they make great sense now that you read them, you can be happy you are not only getting a great puppy, but that the health and confidence of that puppy were foremost with your breeder.
