What is Stand-By?
Stand-by is the first step to adoption from Deaz if our wait lists are full. Stand-by is a generic list that is not linked to any particular parents or litter. With your paid deposit of $200 (non-refundable), you will be placed in order of which your deposit was received.
When new wait lists are created, you will be contacted and offered a spot on the list if your preferences match the parents' expected results.
You are welcome to pass and remain on Stand By until a puppy or litter interests you for up to 1 year from your deposit date.
Going on Stand By puts you a step ahead of the general public, as we will no longer announce available lists or puppies publicly until all Stand By customers have been offered a choice.
How do Wait Lists work?
Wait Lists can be seen on our "Upcoming Litters" page. Stand-by customers who have already made a deposit will have first choice of any new wait list spots available.
Once the litter is born, you will be contacted to schedule your Selection appointment to choose your puppy. We will post newborn, 3wk, and one more round of photos before selections.
NEW! A video is posted on our Facebook page prior to select where you will see the puppies play and they will be introduced and discussed individually.
What is the Selection Process?
When you join the waitlist and the puppies are born, you will be scheduled for a selection appointment around the 5-6 week mark.
We won't know which puppies will be available to you until we reach your spot on the wait list, so please have up to 3 puppies in mind for your selection consultation.
Selection consultations can be done in person, Facetime, Video Conference, or telephone. Selections MUST be made within 30 minutes of your appointment time, so please have your choices ready and any questions you may have. We can discuss markings, size, and temperament during this consultation, but please know that it takes a couple of more weeks to really see personality, so temperament will be based on parents and any signs we see at an early age.
If you choose to pass on this litter and defer, please contact us prior to your selection appointment. Please note that you will be placed at the end of the Stand-by list and we cannot guarantee another puppy or wait list until we reach your spot on Stand-by.
Once you choose a puppy, you can expect your new family member in 3-4 weeks! We will arrange for final payment and pickup shortly after you make your selection and then all that's left is to take your baby home!
Please note that Deaz Cockapoos reserves the right to select up to two (2) puppies from any litter at any time. Our selection(s) will be made prior to contacting customers for a selection consultation and we do our best to keep you informed of the available selections.
