Doodled Hill’s New Puppy Visit Policy
Due to outbreaks of diseases such as the Parvovirus, Coccidia, etc. especially during summer months, we have had to adopt a pretty strict visitation policy. Puppies are very fragile when so young, especially before they’ve had all their vaccinations. We only allow people that have already placed a deposit to come to view our puppies. This way we’re assured that no one has first been to someone else’s breeding facility where they could potentially carry illnesses with them to our place. We do things a little differently here on Doodled Hill. Since we are now providing puppies for Service Dog Organizations, our puppy selections won’t happen until 7 weeks of age. After a deposit is placed, we will set an appointment time in the order in which you are in line on the reservation list to choose your puppy. We value our Jr.Doodled puppies and need to protect them from diseases and parasites, etc. People that have a puppy reserved with us are thankful for this policy, as they certainly do not want their new baby to get sick or hurt in any way.
Safety of the Pups:
1. Puppies’ immune systems are very immature. Many unsuspecting visitors can bring disease (parvovirus, distemper, etc) with them when visiting pups, the result would be death of the entire litter.
2. Stressed out Moms create stressed out pups. A new mother is emotionally charged and in hyper protective mode. When a stranger comes to visit, Mom becomes stressed causing her body creates cortisol, which goes into the milk. The puppies consume this cortisol rich milk and become stressed themselves. And a panicked new mom could hurt the new born pups. ( No visit’s the first 3 weeks ) Healthy, happy & sound puppies is our main goal.
3. We don’t ‘own’ the pups. All the pups are sold to families. We are simply the guardian and have been entrusted with the care of these pups for the first critical weeks of their lives. As guardian of other people’s’ dogs, we must do everything we can to protect them.
4.When you place a deposit, we know you are serious about adopting one of our precious babies and not wanting to come for any “other” reason…and with an appt the gates will be opened. Please note; while visiting Doodled Hill you are on video surveillance at all times.
