Have you decided to welcome an Honest Egg pup into your home? We don't plan to just hand you a puppy and send you on your way. Having an Honest Egg pup means becoming a member of The Honest Egg family! Here are a few things included with a puppy.
Once you fill out an application, we'll schedule a phone call to learn more about your lifestyle and preferences.
Please read the information below regarding pricing, timeline, and schedule.
We have reduced our price for our current litter, Rocket's Rocks & Minerals (DOB 1/11, Selection Day 3/11, Take-Home 3/18) to $3300 for the first 5 picks, and $2900 for the final 5 picks. This $2900 price is for THIS LITTER ONLY! Our future litters will return to our new $3300 price unless otherwise noted. That means if someone passes on Rocket's litter at a $2900 spot, they will be held to the $3300 price.
(This does not affect the pricing of current reservation holders and those already committed to this Litter List. If you are currently on our List and would like the new pricing, you will lose your current spot and drop down to the final opening on the list.)
Once you've submitted an application, we will reach out to you to schedule an informational phone call. This call is get a better picture of your lifestyle and preferences and to answer any questions you have about our process.
Master, Litter, and Standby Lists:
After the phone call, a Reservation Fee of $500 can be submitted via Venmo or Apple Pay. The Reservation holds your spot on the "Master" Waiting List for all of future litters. We put together "Litter" Lists in the order of the Master List. We generally know the timeframe of a litter about 4.5 months before the puppies will be ready to go home. We begin building a Litter List prior to breeding and generally have one or two positions in a Stand-by List in case the temperament or timing of a puppy doesn't work out for someone else on the Litter List. We will occasionally hold the top spot in a litter list for The Honest Egg to use for our breeding program or as we require. We will refund your Reservation fee at any time prior to you confirming a spot on a Litter List. You can always pass on a Litter List, and if no puppy in a litter suits your needs, you will keep your spot on the Master Waiting List.
After joining a Litter or Standby List, you will get insider access to our shared iCloud Photos album for the litter you are picking from. We believe in early bonding and offer you these photos and videos so you don’t have to miss out on sweet things like your puppy nursing, learning to toddle, then walk, wrestle with siblings, and advance through parts of our curriculum.
Because we believe so strongly that all puppies and families are unique, we wait until puppies are 7.5 weeks old to perform evaluations. We can see bits of personality traits starting as early as 5 weeks old, but the older they get, the more we can see. We also wait until this age for selection day so that the puppies will already have had their genetic testing and vet check, to ensure you are choosing your puppy with 100% insight into their health as well as temperament.
On the Wednesday before Selection Day, we evaluate each puppy individually, record them on video (usually 5-12 minutes long), and post the evaluation videos for everyone on the Litter List and Stand-by List to watch. We also email out the evaluation scorecards, our extra notes, any notable results from the genetic testing, and any findings from the vet. You and your family and friends can watch the videos, read the results, and hopefully will know which puppies seem best suited for you! On Selection Day, a Saturday, families choose their puppies in their order on the Litter List (virtually or in person at our home).
Puppies go home 1 week after Selection day. We love to take photos of our pups with their forever families before they go home for our records and our social media! If you would prefer not to appear on our social media, please let us know!
Price: Our puppy price is $3500, and the Reservation Fee ($500) is applied towards that. $1500, which is non-refundable, is due on Puppy Selection Day. $1500 is due on Take-home day.
Supply Guide: We provide a Mini Aussiedoodle Supply Guide to our families. In it, you’ll find the items most used and needed, with the correct size, and explanations as to their necessity and age of usage. The right supplies and the right set up in your home makes a huge impact in having a wonderful puppy-hood!
2-Year Health Guarantee: For the first two years of the dog's life, we provide a guarantee against any genetic or congenital health conditions.
Microchip: Our puppies are microchipped first in our name, and then you may add your own info. We microchip as part of our promise to always be there for our dogs, even once they're no longer ours.
Genetic Testing: We provide a full health and color panel of each puppy with their evaluation scorecards.
Snuggle Puppy: All puppies will go home with a Snuggle Puppy scented by their littermates. Snuggle Puppy is a stuffed animal with a heartbeat, designed to ease the transition from the litter to a new home.
A final key aspect of our contract: At any time in the dog’s life, if you are unable to care for it or find that you and your dog's lives are incompatible, we will take the dog back, no questions asked.
