the details

adoption process

My waitlist is based on size, desired looks, and gender of the puppy.  I do not accept waitlists for a particular litter. Once a litter is born that matches your specific needs, I will contact you and you will have the option of committing to that litter or passing. We are knowledgeable in coat traits and genetics and breed our doodles to achieve the highly desired red coats with tuxedo and abstract markings. We also have parti coloring, which is a white based coat with red markings. Most importantly, they are bred to be healthy, socialized, well-rounded, and loving family pets.

Teacup approx. 4-8 lbs $5000

Micro mini approx. 12-18 lbs $4500

Mini approx. 20-35 lbs $4000

Please read our FAQ’S page!  This will answer many of the questions you might already have. You  can also view our current and upcoming litters  under “Available pups and upcoming litters” page.  After reviewing these pages, if you would like to join our waitlist, please fill out our puppy ownership application (if you haven’t already). I will contact you within 24-48 hours to let you know if we are a good fit for providing your perfect puppy.  Please ask questions if you have any in the application.

Once approved, we require a $500 non-refundable deposit to secure your spot on our waitlist. This can be done via zelle (801-687-2842 or gilsondoodles@gmail.com), PayPal friends and family **If friend and family is not used, I will have to charge an additional fee* (gilsondoodles@gmail.com), or Venmo (@Kaleigh-Gilson).

I will have several litters every 6-8 months or so. Our smaller mamas tend to have around 4-6 pups on average. Depending on how specific you are and when you put your deposit down, your wait could be anywhere from a couple of months (or sooner if we have litters on the ground) up to 12 months wait.  If you are extremely specific about gender, colors, & size, your wait could be longer. 

Once a puppy/litter becomes available, either a new litter is born, someone on the waitlist ahead of you passes, or we have more pups than expected, we will contact you in order of deposits received. At that time, you can either choose to pass or place another $500 deposit to commit to that specific puppy/litter.  At this time I will give you specific dates on when your puppy will come home (at 8 weeks of age).  If you choose to move forward, you are also committing to the specific timeframe of picking up your puppy.  If the timing doesn’t work for you, or you pass for any other reason, you will retain your spot at the top of the waitlist.  Both of the $500 deposits will go towards your final cost of your puppy.

Choosing your actual puppy happens when the puppy is 5-6 weeks of age.  At this age, you are better able to see their cute personalities, coats and colors. Before picking day, we will post lots of pictures and videos on Instagram so you can see the puppies frequently!!  I will let you know the specific selection date. Puppies are picked in the order of deposits. We can facetime with you and discuss their personalities and specific traits if you’d like. Once you have chosen your puppy during selection week, the remaining balance is due and the health guarantee and sales contract will be sent to you to be signed. 

About 2 weeks before your puppy is due to come home, we can discuss pick up options.  We can recommend a flight nanny service who fly in cabin with your puppy (usually a fixed fee of $600-800 via flight nanny), or you can pick up your puppy in SLC.  If you choose to fly into SLC, Utah, I  can meet you at the airport on the dates specified by me.  Any flights will have to be scheduled within a 2 day period that I approve. You may also choose to drive to our hometown Blanding, UT to pick up your puppy.
