How the Waitlist Works

My waitlist is based on SIZE of puppies and NOT by specific litters.  The reason I have changed this policy is because people tend to focus too much on the looks of the parent dogs that they won't consider another litter based soley for that reason.  All of our goldendoodles are bred to achieve very similar looks with the red, apricot, or cream coat colors with possible white markings.  More importantly, they are bred to be healthy, socialized, well-rounded, and loving family pets.  I have recently raised my prices due to several reasons.  The main reason is because cost of breeding has increased significantly.  Stud fees, vet fees, reproductive services, health testing, etc. is all part of the process of breeding.  I take pride in the extra care, training, and effort put forth in raising your perfect puppy!

Joining the Waitlist

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.

Initial Deposit

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 gilsongoldendoodles@gmail.com), PayPal friends and family **If friend and family is not used, I will have to charge an additional fee* (gilsongoldendoodles@gmail.com), or Venmo (@Kaleigh-Gilson).

Wait Times

I will have several litters every 6-8 months or so. Our smaller mamas tend to have around 4-6 pups, but that is never a guarantee. We also cannot guarantee genders. 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. 

Commit to a Litter

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.

Puppy Selection

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. 

Puppy Pickup

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 $500-700 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.
