Our Cavapoo and Aussalier waiting lists are currently closed and we are not accepting any new applications at this time. If you’d like to keep up on any news or announcements please sign up for email notifications on the website/blog.
Thank you so much for stopping by to find out how to get one of our adorable Cavapoos! This is the place to start the process. It has a lot of information, but it is all important information and should be thoroughly read before proceeding with the applications.
We do not have available puppies. We work from a waiting list. The wait time for a Cavapoo puppy (once you are accepted on our waiting list) can be as little as a few months to as long as eighteen months depending on what color/gender you want or how flexible you are. (FYI, if you’re looking for a reddish/apricot (some might call them caramel, light brown, etc.) this is our most requested color and the wait will most likely be 12-18 months.) When I give you a guesstimate it is just that a “guess”. There are so many variables (between what the dogs will do and what people on the list will do) that it could be longer, or possibly sooner. So if you decide to get on our list please be ready for a puppy anytime!
This page was created to give you information on acquiring a Pinewood Puppy. We hope this will help with the process and answer some questions also.
There are two important steps that you need to do to get on our waiting list for a puppy;
- Fill out the puppy application forms completely. The more information I have the better. Please make sure to fill out Part 1 and Part 2 and submit consecutively. This is very important especially if I get multiple people applying the same day. Because there is no place for your name on Part 2 and if I get a random Part 2 a few days after you submitted Part 1 it is hard for me to figure out who it belongs to (to make things even easier feel free to add your name to any of the answer sections on Part 2). I will review your application and get back to you after I receive them with any questions or concerns I may have. Please be aware if you send the application on Friday or Saturday it may be Monday before I get back to you especially if it is a Puppy Delivery weekend. Also since our waiting list has not been open for over a year, we will likely get many new applications when it reopens, therefore it will take me days to go through them all. Please be patient. But please feel free to email me if you haven’t heard back from me within a few days.
- After you have heard back from me and your application has been approved, please send the $200 non-refundable application fee with my instructions. (Please make sure you are serious about your commitment to get on our list and wait for a puppy. Again the $200 application fee is non-refundable. If you change your mind or find a puppy elsewhere you forfeit this fee. You acknowledge that you understand this when you mark “YES” on the second to the last question on Page 2 of our Puppy Application.
- This application fee is not a deposit. But the application fee is part of the puppy’s purchase price. We do not ask for a deposit until you are matched with your puppy.
Once you are matched with a puppy, you MUST send the $500 non-refundable deposit to me within 5 days, for me to hold your puppy for you. The balance for your puppy needs to arrive here by the time puppy turns seven weeks old.
The puppy application forms may seem comprehensive, but it helps us to help you find the right puppy. We take this “job” seriously and have invested a lot into our puppies and want to make sure each one goes to an appropriate home.
Again, please carefully consider the decision to get on our waiting list. We want serious adopters that are prepared to take on a puppy when a puppy is available! If you decide you are ready to get on our list for a puppy and then pass on several available litters our puppy price increases, you will need to pay the next price increase each time you pass. An exception would be if you wrote on your application (“red/apricot female ONLY” ) and I’ve not had one to offer you. Prices are subject to change without notice.
And if you have life changes where it looks like you’ll have to pass several times or wait a year, it might be better to ask to be removed from the list and reapply when you are ready. That frees up our list for more people that are anxious to adopt a puppy and keeps our list moving and active! (If you have to reapply you do not have to pay the application fee again.)
Please note, that if you find a puppy elsewhere, your spot on the list is non-transferable to a friend, neighbor or relative. We don’t think it’s fair for those below you on the list. And if you do find a puppy elsewhere, Congratulations! But please have the courtesy to let us know so we can remove your name from our list and free it up for someone else.
If you have questions beforehand, please feel free to contact us via email (email@example.com) or phone 509-722-6008 (No Friday night or Saturday calls please.) There is lots of information on the website pages and the FAQ page that might help with some of your questions too.
Also please read through all the pages under the “Puppy Info” heading and also the NuVet info under the Health heading. There is a lot of good information, which may answer some questions for you. If you have more after reading through the pages, feel free to contact us!
We will announce each new litters on the blog with puppy info (colors/genders) Puppy Matching date and Puppy Delivery date. Each litter will have a page on our website under the “Cavapoo” heading. Once a litter is born a litter picture and information will be added to the page. Once the puppies hit two to three weeks of age, we will post weekly picture updates until eight weeks of age and also lots of videos on our YouTube channel (Pinewood Kennels Cavapoos). You will need to reach out with each new litter you are interested in to be put on that specific litter’s list for it’s specific puppy matching day. You may have to get on several litter lists before you are matched with your puppy. For more details please refer to the above link “Our Puppy Matching Process”. It is your fun “job” to check those albums, watch videos and start picking your favorites to be prepared for the puppy matching day of the litter/s you’re interested in.
Your puppy will be ready to go home around eight to nine weeks of age. Your puppy will have its first puppy shot, been through our de-worming program, be using a litter box, started on potty training (weather permitting), and started on crate training. Your puppy will have had a stool sample checked and a health exam done by our veterinarian. Your puppy will go home with a puppy packet of information, a birth certificate, a health record, the health exam sheet from our vet, a food sample, a NuVet sample (although we recommend you order your own supply ahead of time; see NuVet page for order info), a home-made baby blanket, toys and our on-going support once you get your puppy home.
Also please read through these linked pages if you are applying for a puppy. They are “required” reading for applicants.
As a courtesy, each litter has a delivery day where we meet our families in Spokane and personally hand you your puppy. It is a big process for us to get several puppies ready, leave early in the morning and drive two-plus hours to Spokane. Please plan accordingly so we can make the delivery day run smoothly for everyone.
Current Puppy Prices
Health Certificates…. Any dog crossing the border into another state is required to have a health certificate (whether by plane or vehicle). So for those pups that are traveling out of the state of Washington to their new home (whether flying or traveling by vehicle), they will be getting health certificates at the time of their puppy exam. You may never be asked to show this certificate to an official but we want those pups to be in compliance and have the proper paperwork should you need it to get your puppy home. And as before all our Canadian adopters are required to have a health certificate to get your puppy across the border. Washington adopters will not need a health certificate. This will be an additional $60 for those puppies that need it.
Microchipping…We can also have our vet micro-chip your pup for an additional $60. Please let us know you want this done when you are matched with your puppy.
Puppy application fees and deposits can be sent by personal check. (I will send you my address after your application is approved.) If you don’t have “paper”checks (I know a lot of people do everything electronically now) you can get a Cashier’s check from your bank. Puppy balance can also be paid by check (I need to have this by the time puppy is seven weeks old) or you can bring cash at pick-up.
We are trying to get away from using things like PayPal and Venmo as they are not “dog breeder friendly” apps thanks to all the puppy scammers!
