Additional Costs & Services

Boarding:

While we always recommend all puppies be picked up in person, we do understand that there may be various reasons you are unable to make the scheduled puppy going home date. In the event that you have extenuating circumstances, we may consider boarding your puppy at a cost. Please understand that this is subject to timing and availability. All arrangements must be made well in advance of home-going day.

What does boarding cost?

$75-a-day up to 3 days, $100-a-day for nights 4-7, for a maximum of 7 days.

Delivery Options:

We will schedule your litter for a going home day after the 8 weeks have elapsed. You will be notified of this date for your specific litter. We recommend that all puppies be picked-up on their home going date. However, should you need another means of pick-up and delivery, we have listed the following options for you:

Home Delivery
We prefer to deliver your puppy if you cannot make arrangements to do the pick-up in person. If you are less than 100 miles from us, we may be able to deliver your puppy for $1/mile for the round-trip mileage.

Flight Delivery
The cost of flight delivery does vary, but in many cases, we are able to hand deliver your puppy (riding in-cabin with us) for about the same price as shipping him in cargo.  We prefer this option as it gives your puppy a much less traumatic arrival and we love to be able to hand him to you in-person!  If this option does prove to be cost prohibitive, we may agree to ship your puppy.

Shipped Delivery
Shipping prices may vary, but you can plan to pay at least $500 for this option, in addition to the price of your puppy. Shipping costs may include: additional veterinary visit for a travel certificate, boarding and care through shipping date, an airline approved travel crate with bowls, and delivery charge for airport transportation.  Puppies ship after they are 8 weeks of age.

Shipped and delivered puppies arrive with their “Going Home Packet”  Please indicate if you need to discuss delivery or shipping options with us when you fill out our online application.

Dollars and Sense

“What goes into a Crossfield Doodle?”

Let’s start with the cost of owning our girls and boys. Puppies intended for breeding typically cost approximately double the purchase price of the same puppy intended as a pet.

Next, as you can well imagine we want the healthiest puppies we can possibly provide for our customers. This means we go to the vet pretty often. Routine veterinary care as well as multiple diagnostic and genetic tests to confirm healthy breeding stock can cost between $1000-$2000/dog (boys and girls) before the first litter even arrives. After the puppies arrive there are hundreds of more dollars for vaccines, dew claw removal, and well checks.

Food & treats. A dog’s gotta eat! And though some of them be little, yet they be hungry!

From the time the puppies are born until the time they go home there are numerous “little” expenses that range from whelping boxes & supplies to microchips that each puppy receives to give his/her new owner peace of mind. Sometimes a delivering female will encounter some problems, and the vet has to be contacted for a house call and an emergency c-section. We hope not, but…

Top notch customer service, photography, and a social media presence you can be proud to be a part of: these are things that matter to us and matter to you.  They don’t break the bank, but the cost is something we have to consider as we price our puppies.

Our aim is to provide ongoing support to our customers. In rare instances this will mean that we will refund a customer the purchase price of their puppy. In other rare instances we will replace their puppy with another, healthier one. It’s just the right thing to do.

Crossfield hopes that these brief answers explain why we and numerous other breeders price our puppies as we do. We are confident that Crossfield Doodles’ customers will get exactly what they pay for!
