We are not a pet store, an amusement park, a zoo or a tourist attraction! We do not do "kennel tours". We do not have a kennel. Visits are strictly limited to individuals seriously interested in a particular dog that is available (and not spoken for and ready to go) and only after we have reviewed an application and have had a phone conversation. In most cases, a refundable deposit is required to hold your puppy/dog
We do not have kennel facilities and our dogs live in our home. We are therefore not able to implement proper COVID safety protocols in our home and visits/pick ups will be front yard/front porch pick ups until further notice. Thanks in advance, for understanding!
For disease prevention and for the health of our dogs/puppies, we do not accept any visitors when we have un-vaccinated puppies, pregnant mothers, or females in season (who are to be bred). To compensate for this, we have a separate website for our "puppy parents" where we update pictures and/or videos approximately every 7-10 days (as per our schedule allows), so that prospective owners can see their puppies grow. We also have a Care Guide, a puppy diary (where we post developmental milestones, updates, etc.) and other valuable care and training information to help you prepare for your puppy. Remember, we're looking after your puppy and are acting in their best interest!
We maintain a paid waiting list. Our waiting list deposit is $500. Our waiting list is intended for individuals who want a puppy specifically from us. Our waiting list is not intended to be used as a "place holder" (i.e. getting on all breeder's waiting lists and taking the first puppy that becomes available). However, if one changes their mind and does not wish to remain on our list, $300 of the Waiting List deposit is refundable (i.e, $200 is non-refundable).
Waiting List and Puppy Deposits will only be accepted after an application has been approved and there has been a successful phone conversation with the prospective owner.
When prospective puppy parents come to pick up their puppies, they will have the opportunity to meet us, our dogs and ask questions. Prospective puppy parents reserve the right to decline the puppy and either put all the deposit toward a pup from the next litter(s) or if they choose they no longer want a puppy from us, they will receive all of their payments made back, minus $200 for our time, etc.
Individuals on our waiting list receive first opportunity to adopt puppies/dogs that become available, prior to them being posted on our website as available. Individuals whom have paid the $500 Waiting List Deposit would then submit a $1000 Puppy Deposit once puppies are born and we have a puppy available.
We do not have a deferred payment plan and the puppy must be paid for in full at the time of adoption. Our payment schedule for our puppies is as follows:
Boston Waiting List Deposit - $500 ($300 is non-refundable) - Our Boxer waiting list is FREE at the present time
Puppy Deposit - $1000 (for those who are on our waiting list) - Due at the time of reservation
OR(if not on the waiting list) - $1500 total puppy deposit
Puppy Payment - $500 - Due at 5-6 weeks of age
Remaining balance - Due at pick-up
Puppies are ready to go at 9 weeks or later, at our discretion, as per our schedule, when our schedule allows. Puppies to be held until a future date (regardless of the reason) will incur a boarding fee of $12/day.
Bedford Reg'd has the right/opportunity to decline ownership to anyone for any reason. Submitting a deposit does not guarantee a "sale". We do not sell to backyard breeders, puppy mills, brokers, pet stores or large commercial breeders. Our pet pups are placed on non-breeding agreements and spay/neuter contracts.
Our pups are placed on Co-Ownership Agreements and Spay/Neuter Contracts. Once Puppies have been spayed/neutered and we receive adequate proof of spay/neuter (as per contract), IF the owner wishes to receive full sole ownership, the cost to do so will be at the sole responsibility of the owner.
We do not sell our puppies as gifts. Meaning, we do not sell our pups to put under the Christmas tree or for a person outside of one's household. If a family plans and agrees on a puppy prior to adoption and one wants to surprise their children, etc. that is different.
We do not sell to "minors"
Our puppies are not for resale! If you cannot keep your puppy/dog or any reason, they have to come back to Bedford Reg'd (unless suitable arrangements can be made with our approval).
