Your Journey to Paw-Happiness in Five Steps:
Step 1: Submit an application
Tell us about yourself and what you are looking for in a puppy. The application allows us to get in contact with you regarding our availability.
Step 2: Submit a deposit
A deposit secures your reservation for a puppy from a litter. Deposits are non-refundable but transferable between litters. We will talk about exactly what you are wanting and make sure you are on the best possible list for your needs. *
Step 3: Wait for your puppy
There’s always some sort of wait period, whether you’re waiting for your puppy to be born or for your puppy to reach 8 weeks of age.
The week a litter is born, we will send an e-mail notification that your puppy has arrived! From there, we will send pictures and an update about your litter’s growth weekly. This is the perfect time to prepare for the arrival of your new pet. We will share with you many resources to prepare you throughout the process. You will need to watch our go-home video, read through our new puppy newsletter, and sign our sales contract.
Step 4: Allocations
At six weeks of age, a temperament test and coat assessment will be conducted to determine the best possible puppy for your family’s needs. Allocations are made based on a variety of factors but at the end of the day, we want to make sure we are placing the right puppy with the right families.
At this time, the rest of the remaining balance is due. It may be paid by check, certified check, or cash. If all monies have not been received at that time, then the puppy will be placed with the next approved family on the waiting list.
Step 5: Go-Home Day
Your puppy will be ready to go home at 8 weeks of age! This is always a very exciting day. We do porch picks on our farm for most families. If you are from out of state we have some options.
Your puppy may travel to his/her forever home by either:
1. You picking up your puppy. We live in Northern Hamilton County about 25 minutes north of Indianapolis.
2. We will meet anyone in a 60-mile radius for a $100 delivery fee.
3. We assist you in arranging hand-delivery flight transportation of your puppy at your cost plus a $300 delivery fee.
*Deposits will be returned only if your application is denied or if we are unable to produce a puppy that fits your family’s needs within 12 months of your application. We do not refund deposits if we have offered more than three puppies to you in a 12-month period.
**Please note that CVL is not responsible for any issues or damages resulting from shipment.
