To be considered for a fall reservation you need to read everything on my site, and send in a hard copy of my application, and a deposit so it is post marked by September 6th -13. I recommend sending in the application, and deposit even if you and I have not yet spoken. I get a ton of correspondence this week, and I can't answer everyone, but an application, and deposit showing up in my home mailbox tells me your serious, and you are shuffled to the front of the line with the other applicants for consideration. Nothing is final till we have a phone conversation when I have your application in hand, and we mutually agree that we are a good fit, and we officially put you in our reservation book for a particular spot on a particular litter! If you are not a good fit then I will rip up your check, and text you a photo, and we will go our separate ways!
TIP from Annie: How do I get an Annie's Doodles as soon as possible? Actually read my site so you understand my policies, and how things work. The following is how my puppy list works: After I receive your application and deposit during my "open time", I will eventually call you. If you have to, have to have a very specific characteristic with your puppy -if you want a certain color, or if you are dead set on getting a male, or you have to have a female that is fine. That means that you need to be in the #1 spot on a particular litter. At this point the #1 spot open on any of my upcoming litters is in 2018 or later. The reason you need to be in the #1 spot is because unfortunately Mother Nature does not take requests from me. Sometimes I have all red puppies, sometimes I have all female puppies from a litter. (Side note- your puppy will either be blonde, apricot or red- those are the only colors I make) Where you are on the list determines what pick you have in the litter. When you reserve a pup from me, you reserve a certain "spot" in particular litter. You can not move onto another litter list if someone ahead of you picks the puppy with the trait you want. Only the first person on the list has that prerogative. If you fill out the application, and are 100% open to male or female, and open to any of the 3 colors, that will speed up the process. You might ask why this is the case? I have been implementing this exact system for the last 11 years as a breeder, and I have found this is the only way I can logistically make the lists work. Also, my husband and I firmly believe that the most important thing about your puppy is not the gender, or the color, but the actual breed, and who the parent dogs are, and that your pup is raised the right way when he is here. In our opinion, that is what determines who your puppy is. There are a lot of stereotypes out there about what a female, or male dog is like, or maybe you grew up with all female dogs so therefore that is what you want. I encourage you to be open! (I get equal requests for either gender. ) There obviously is a bit of a wait to get one of our puppies. If you want to speed up the process I encourage you to be open to what I have mentioned above.

Annie's Doodles should really be called Boone and Annie's Doodles because Boone, my husband, is the one our puppies love the most. That is because Boone spends countless hours with the puppies. Whenever I walk into the dog nursery I can hear Boone singing to the the puppies as he works with them. He makes up little ditties about the puppies! They all know him and run to him! Each puppy is individually handled everyday. This socialization and continuity is essential for healthy puppy developement. Boone also is always busy building, and repairing our puppy facility, and talking with me about ideas, and vision for our Doodles! Boone actually has his mancave- office right in the puppy room. That is how much he loves all of his puppies!
What is a Puppy Application?
We want our puppies to go to only the best homes. We check you out just like you checked us out! We also use the application to match you with a puppy with the right temperament for your household. When the puppies are born we watch each puppy and track them for several weeks. We will take pictures of each puppy and send them to you. You can choose two or three puppies that catch your eye. By 7 weeks we will together narrow down just the right doodle for you.
How do I reserve a puppy?
We accept puppy reservations on a first come first serve basis. A hard copy of puppy applicataion and $300.00 check reserves a spot on the upcoming puppy list. We do form a list of "interested in next litter people" before we have the official due date and then notify them when they can apply.

Our puppies range in price from $1900–$3100 plus tax. Price depends on size, breed, and if they are spayed or neutered. All of our Australian Multi Gen Labradoodles are spay/neuter before leaving our farm. For our goldendoodles everyone is required to sign a spay/neuter contract stating they will spay/neuter before the pups first birthday.
What does this include?
All puppies go home with the following:
When can we bring our doodle home?
At 8 weeks goldendoodles go home and at 9 weeks ALD go home!
What is a Guardian Home?
Annie and Boone are committed to raising their breeding stock in a "family atmosphere". Annie's Doodles is not a kennel. We make this a priority by only having a small number of our breeding stock on our farm, and the other mama's are in what we call "guardian homes". It is a win win situation for Annie's Doodles, the breeding dog and the guardian family. A guardian family must live in a 30 mile radius to Annie's Doodle's Farm located in Ferndale, WA . (No exceptions) Annie's Doodles maintains the breeding rights on the dog until she retires the dam. At that point the guardian family gets to keep the dog free of charge. There are many rules that a guardian family must adhere to so it is for sure not a "free dog". Guardian homes need to have a fully fenced back yard. If you fit the above requirements, and are interested you can contact Annie and she can send you an application.
We live at a distance. Will you ship my new puppy?
Sorry we will not, but here are the options!
The first option: Drive to Annie' Doodles on "puppy pick-up day"! We love when people come to our farm to meet us and pick up their new Doodle.
The second option: Puppy pick up/ mini vacation (I have one or two folks that opt for this choice almost every litter). They fly into Seattle, rent a car and pick up their pup, and take their pup as a carry on -on the plane. While here they often make it a special event and they take in the beautiful sites of the San Juan Islands, quaint Bellingham and Seattle!
Can We Come Visit?
Yes and No!!!!
Yes, we welcome visitors and people who have reserved a pup when the puppies are 8 weeks old! We call it "Puppy Pickup Day"! This is a very exciting day around our house. It is always fun for me to put a face to the people I have chatted with or emailed back and forth with!
No, we do not accept visitors before the pups are 8 weeks old! Because of the threat of the parvo virus which can inadvertently come on to our farm via visitor's clothing, or shoes we are very strict about our no visitor policy. It is our number one priority to keep the puppies healthy and growing so they are ready to go home at 8 weeks to their forever families. If one puppy is exposed to the parvo virus it spreads quickly and can wipe out every puppy on the farm. We adhere to this strict policy and you will find that most conscientious breeders do the same.
Is the deposit non-refundable?
Yes it is non refundable. The great thing about the deposit is it is my promise to you to hold a puppy for you and your promise to me to keep your commitment to adopt that puppy!
The female pups go home with the leaf pattern collar, and the males go home with the polka dot collar!
