Puppy Reservation Deposit


DEPOSITS FOR UPCOMING LITTERS

Upon approval of your submitted puppy questionnaire for an unborn litter, we will accept early deposits of $100.00 prior to the litter being born to secure your place on the list until the litter is born. It has been our sad experience that people don't always understand that we have no control over what color puppies will be born, how many of each gender, and foresight of any potential problems, etc.  Take note: We have an active relationship with God and talk/pray to Him daily.  He has an ultimate plan for everything which does not always include what we plan for, anticipate, ask for, or intend.  We will meet your requests for SPECIFIC litter, gender and color preferences....God willing - and He usually does grant a very large portion of our waitlisted party's wishes as we only waitlist a certain number of people for each litter. In the event we can not provide a puppy of your preferred litter, color preference if color is an option, or your specified gender in the event your are specific, we will offer other upcoming litters or a different gender/color combination if available from your preferred litter.  The majority of our litters are completely reserved prior to birth as a result of the dedicated premium quality and elite lineages of proven dogs in the pedigrees. Being waitlisted ensures you do receive a puppy upon availibility.   All of our litters are first class litters that are expected to exceed expectations and are all of exceptional pedigrees.  National champion sired litters from dams that are also national champion sired are our specialty but are very uncommon and hard to find since the National Champion title is a title only a very elite few dogs carry - it is the needle in the haystack of titles and equivalent to the Olympic Gold Medal in layman's terms. We are an AKC inspected kennel with the highest score provided of 100 precentile on all checkpoints, we are a certified AKC Breeder of Merit, highly involved and well known in the brittany field competition world, and stand behind our beliefs and and core values of producing the very best dogs we possibly can to enable us to continue to be competitive with this breed on a national level. Should a puppy of your preferred gender and color not be born, the deposit is transferrable to the next equal quality upcoming litter that is expected to offer your preferred color/gender combination. We only waitlist enough people for each breeding to cover the estimated puppies expected from the specific mother.  In the event we underestimate a particular litter, parties who are waitlisted for other upcoming litters due at a later date will have first option to accept/decline any available puppies due to under estimation of our waitlist before public offering and announcement to non-waitlisted parties.  Any refunds of the initial deposit will be at our discretion.  We pride ourselves on being fair and eithical in all situations.

 

DEPOSITS FOR LITTERS THAT HAVE BEEN BORN

In the rare event we do have an available puppy available after the birth of a litter, we will accept deposits in the amount of $250 to hold an available puppy until proper age of pick up or flight (6-8 weeks of age) upon approval of your submitted puppy questionnaire.

 

HOW TO MAKE A DEPOSIT FOR A PUPPY

Deposits for reserving a puppy will ONLY be accepted in the form of a
personal check mailed/made payable to us at our home address:

Jim and Drew Carter

13094 Bowens Mill Road
Ambrose, GA 31512

If you are mailing a deposit to us, PLEASE include the following in the form of a personal note:

Your name
Mailing address
Phone number
Email address
The litter you are sending a deposit for
Preferred gender of the puppy
 Any additional information you feel is needed so that we may maintain proper records.


If you have questions or concerns about making a deposit please contact us.  Please note that we have the best interest of our puppies and know them and their personalities better than anyone as we spend lots of time with every litter we have.  We do our very best to match puppies with families whom they are most suited.  We will recommend puppies to you that we feel will best suit your situation based on the information you provide in the questionnaire. We receive questionnaires from every type of home imaginable which range from quiet, single person homes looking for a high quality representative of the breed for companionship purposes to high-end commercial hunting preserves and competition homes.  Each puppy has a perfect family out there...and we aim to find it.  Please represent yourself 100% truthfully so we can offer the very best puppies possible for you.

Our utmost goal is a happy puppy and a happy owner. 

 We expect puppies to be picked up and/or shipped by the age of 8 weeks old.  Owners with puppies remaining in our possession past the age of 8 weeks old may be charged a daily boarding fee of $5.00/day and will also be responsible for vaccination fees during this time if applicable.  Vaccines are priced accordingly should the puppy be in our possession at the time vaccinations are needed: 6 week vaccinations (included in puppy price), 9 week vaccines ($45),12 week vaccines ($45), 16 week vaccines ($25).  We are unable to send veterinary quality/certified vaccinations home with you. Please do not ask.

 

BASIC TIMELINE OF EVENTS

STEP 1
New owners looking to purchase a puppy from an upcoming litter or from a litter that currently has a puppy available must first complete a questionnaire. The questionnaire can be found via links on each individual

litter page or under the contact section of our website.

STEP 2

Upon receipt of the questionnaire, we will respond formally within 48 hours (in most cases).  Our email address is carterbritts@icloud.com and our phone number is 912-383-5793. If a period of 48 hours has passed without hearing from us after submitting a questionnaire, feel free to contact us if you feel there is an issue with receipt.  Feel free to copy/paste only the quesitons from the questionnaire (not the text boxes!) in a private email if you prefer this over submitting the questionnaire directly through the website.

STEP 3

Should you be approved and wish to proceed with being waitlisted for a litter via deposit ($100 for upcoming litters or $250 if we have an available puppy), we will advise approval via email response and ask that you follow the directions for mailing in deposits as stated in the above paragraphs detailed in the section on "how to make a deposit."

STEP 4

Upon receipt of your deposit you will officially be added to our waitlist and we will email you confirmation of receipt of the deposit. 

STEP 5

For unborn litters, our next official contact will be once puppies are 14 days old with the litter announcement which includes full details on how to proceed and will also include photos and or videos of the puppies. In the rare event we have a puppy that has already been born that is publically available, the chain of events will be determined by the age of the puppy.

STEP 6

We will continue to update you as the puppies grow at the 4 week and 6 week mark.  We complete evaluations of the puppies at 6-7 weeks old and work with you and offer puppies who's temperaments and manerisms are most suitable for your aspirations.  Yes! All puppies are beautiful!  No! All puppies are not suitable for every home.  For example, the alpha puppy does not need to go to a home with other alpha pets of the same gender or inexperienced owners. The puppy who does not prefer children does not need to go to a home with lots of children.  Our puppies are exeptionally well bred puppies who's pedigree guarantees they have the ability to grow into sound, smart, sensible, highly trainable adults if placed with the correct home. One puppy that was placed in a companion home has been taught to perform over 30 hand-written commands when shown the paper with the written command  -  while another puppy in a field competition home is standing as the #1 juvenile dog in the country!  We are majorly impressed with both situations!  We want our puppies to thrive in your home.  Our dogs have earned the top field awards offered to this breed and we have dedicated over a decade soley to this breed.  As a result, we do have a helping hand in assisting you in selecting that perfect puppy. 

Puppies with National Champion sires and a National Champion sired mother are typically $1500 total unless otherwise noted. We do often have one pick of the litter puppy (from a hunting standpoint) of each gender that we may opt to retain ourself or offer publically. The pick of the litter puppy is one that is of extreme competition hunting quality (bold, energetic, exceptional reach and easy movement, great head and tail set, outgoing, social, ambitious and curious.  If offerred publically, pick of the litter puppies are $2000. If you are a hunting home and are interested in the pick of the litter hunting puppy if we are making a pick of the litter puppy available, please advise in your note with your initial deposit.

Any deposit amount paid will be applied to the total price of the puppy. 

The total price of the puppy includes

-a well matched puppy which you approve
-full AKC registration certificate upon providing us with a registered name for your puppy
-a microchip with lifetime prepaid registration in the national database
-5 generation pedigree
-parental photos and accolades with detailed written pedigree information
-a certificate of health
-vaccination record with a timeline of care for future veterinary visits
-veterinary checkups and required vaccinations at 3 and 6 weeks of age while they are under our care

-a dose of Revolution for prevention of fleas, ticks, ear mites, mange mites, intestinal worms, and heartworms for the two to four weeks in your home
-2-3 day supply of Purina Proplan Performance Salmon and Rice blend at the time of pickup or airline shipping
-an American Brittany Club Primer publication
-a general care and training booklet
-information on how to join the American Brittany Club
-a free 30 day health insurance trial from Trupanion and/or AKC. 

If you require airline shipping please note that airport shipping preparation is $125 on our end (crate, booking, USDA veterinary certification, tranportation/dropoff/checking at airport) PLUS the cost of airfare at the time of travel (which is generally $225-$275).  We are generally able to send puppies collect for payment of the airfare upon pickup at the final destination.  Payment in full for the puppy plus any necessary airline shipping costs ($125 if we are able to send the puppy collect or $125 plus airfare quote by airline at the time of booking if we are not able to send the puppy collect) are required prior to release of the puppy.

STEP 7

Once evaluations are complete we will schedule times for you to arrange to meet the puppies that have been deemed a great match for you and your family at our location.  If you are not able to pick up your puppy from our location, we will assist with looking into airline transportation for your puppy.  If you will require airline transportation, we will send multiple videos and photos for you to get a good feel for the puppies offerred to you and arrange for airline transportation of the puppy deemed best fit for you and your family.  The only options for recieving your puppy are scheduled pickups at our location or airline transfer. 



 





Final Payment and Shipping


Kennel Pickups:  If you plan on picking your reserved puppy up directly from Carter Brittany Kennels any remaining balance is required in full upon pick up of your puppy.  Payment options are the same as the deposit payment options.   Personal checks must have a minimum of 2 weeks to clear prior to releasing the puppy.   Puppies who are being picked up from Carter Brittany Kennels must be a minimum of  6 weeks old  but must be acquired prior to 8 weeks of age unless prior arrangement have been made.  Please note that puppies remaining in our care past the age of 8 weeks for any reason will access a daily boarding fee of $5.00/day + the cost of any neccessary vaccines and preventatives according to age - given at intervals of 6 weeks (included in puppy cost), 9 weeks, 12 weeks, and 16 weeks.

Airline Transfers:  If your reserved puppy must be shipped to you via airline services payment in full for the remaining balance of your puppy plus all applicable shipping fees must be obtained within a minimum of 7 (seven) days prior to shipment.  Personal checks must have time to clear (2 weeks).  We will also accept final payment through Puppy Escrow Payment Services if you prefer.  If Puppy Escrow is your preferred payment method please ask so we can set up an account for the transaction.  Buyers will be responsible for all transaction fees.  We will arrange and discuss shipment in great detail with you to ensure pickup and transfer go smoothly. We will communicate with you via phone the day of shipment to let you know your puppy is in flight and to ensure you have received your puppy at the destination airport in excellent condition. Please note that airline transfers usually cost approximately $125 plus Airfare. We have no control over these costs. The drive for us to the airport is a lengthy one (anywhere from 6-10 hours).  We look at it as an opportunity to provide the puppy with an excellent home for life and therefore our physical time spent in transportation is not of monetary importance.
