Due to COVID-19 we are constantly changing our policy to work with CDC guidelines. We are doing in-home visits when permitted or setting up video chats as a replacement through Zoom Meetings at the 6 week time frame. We are hoping to return to normal as soon as possible.
Fingers crossed the insanity stops soon.
Our small and dedicated family is mainly composed of essential healthcare workers and both Jen and myself are immunocompromised. We are doing all we can to reduce the risk to not only our puppies but ourselves and all of you and your precious families as well.
I will be posting photos for you to see the available pups and if you have one you like please email me. Remember to describe the pup and send your phone number and some info about you, your family, your home and lifestyle.
Please email us your lifestyle and phone number. If you meet our necessary requirements we consider you for a puppy application. We use certain questions on our application to match you with the right pup. Each placement is different and unique. Personality and temperament should match the placement. We focus on finding the perfect fit, not just the quickest fit.
*Please note we only give out applications when we have pups available.* Applications are sent to those with whom we have spoken with.
Once we have an application and you are matched with a puppy or a choice of puppies that fit your lifestyle, we start your Brookside journey.
You will see photos and sometimes video of the proposed pup or pups. Here we answer your questions and concerns and address ours as well. A good idea is to write down your questions ahead of time so that nothing is forgotten!
We discuss the vet check and timing of shots and micro-chipping. We will also discuss visits. I like everyone to visit before pick up. We prefer in person but if you are flying to get your baby we can arrange a zoom meeting.
If I tell you that you are in my NOTEBOOK you are golden!
Although we stopped taking deposits during Covid from 2019 through 2021 to protect you from abundant scammers, we have reinstated a wait list fee.
The fee is non refundable and is not transferable. This covers the cost of my time answering questions, taking photos, videos and countless texts and phone conversations while you get ready to bring home your baby.
Brookside Cavalier receives numerous emails, texts, messages & calls a day with inquiries about the availability of any Cavalier King Charles puppy for sale. We have spend endless hours answering questions, sending pictures, emailing questionnaires & following up with people who are only window shopping, or comparison shopping. To distinguish who is actually serious about wanting one of our cavalier puppies, we require a deposit to be placed on our wait list. ABSOLUTELY NO visitors will be allowed without deposit. Visits are scheduled when your pup is about 6 weeks of age.
Deposits will be applied to total cost.
As often as we can manage! They are all taken in our home which you will see when you visit. We try to capture the expression and coloring and all the markings for you to view. The videos we are able to do (weather permitting) show the pups in motion and enjoying the yard where they are started on house training. Zoom meetings are also an option prior to pick up.
We only schedule visits to our home once a pup has been reserved for you with a non-refundable deposit and the puppies have had their first vaccinations around 6 weeks of age.
At that visit we will discuss the pick up at 8-10 weeks of age. (Very occasionally we keep pups a bit longer if we are keeping one for our self.)
When you arrive you will be visiting Mom & Dad if they are still at our home, and your Puppy. You will be able to see other litter mates if they are still with us and have not already gone to their home. We do not allow anyone to handle pups that are not reserved for them. That being said you can see the litter mates but not handle them.
Once part of our family you will have 24/7 access to me personally for the lifetime of your pet. Many of you become great friends forever.
I humbly thank you for your trust.
If you are not feeling well when you are scheduled to pick up, we can set up a no contact pick up or arrange a no contact delivery as well as offer a rescheduled pick up day and time
****PLEASE DO NOT COME IF YOU ARE NOT WELL*****
We DO NOT allow visits to people who "might be buying" or "just looking" we reserve this haphazard way of placement to the mills, brokers and pet stores who are notorious for sick dogs due to this reckless way of selling.
Our dogs roam our home freely as you can see when you arrive and YES you will get hair on your pants ! ! LOL bring a pet roller ...you have been warned.
*****If you have decided you want a Brookside cavalier, please remember you chose a small family breeder. Please understand we do not pump out countless litters and we do not buy from other sources like others, so it may take a while. *****
But it's worth the wait.!
5 YEAR HEALTH GUARANTEE & NUVET SUPPLEMENTS
LET ME BE VERY CLEAR !!!!!
**** WE NEVER REQUIRE THE RETURN OF ANY DOG TO HONOR OUR COMMITMENT WITH OUR 5 YEAR HEALTH GUARANTEE ****
You are welcome to return your pup/dog if it is too much emotionally or financially but this is NEVER REQUIRED!
Once you buy from us we offer 24/7 lifetime support. We are not a vet nor insurance. We strongly suggest pet insurance to help in times of medical emergency or unforeseen illness. They are a great asset.
Hand in hand with our health guarantee we do require you to give your puppy NuVet Supplements but only for 2 years. You can continue longer if you choose or stop the choice is yours. It reassures us that your puppy gets the proper nutrition they need to grow. and develop properly. We never know what is in dog food or how balanced it is. Seems like there is a lot of debate out there. I like to compare this to the chewable vitamins we had and give our kids!
