ADOPTION PROCESS

Our adoption process is very hands-on and personal. We encourage families to start by filling out our application. There is NO OBLIGATION but it is very informative about our program and adoption process. After we receive your application, we will follow up with a phone interview. At that time we will ask more questions to get to know your situation a little better and find out what you are looking for in a puppy. We will answer any questions you might have and evaluate if we are a “good fit” to help you find the right puppy for your family! We respect that no two families desires are the same, and we try our best to place our puppies in proper, loving, and forever homes. At the end of the day, we would rather help you find the “right puppy” than pressure you into adopting from us.

 

Should you decide to place a deposit on one of our upcoming litters, you become a part of our CWB family! We try our best to keep everyone informed about heat cycles, successful breeding, anticipated due dates, pregnancy confirmation/ultrasound and ultimately litter news. Facebook is our main method of frequent communication, but we also stay connected to families via email, text, messenger and our quarterly newsletter. 

 

Once the puppies are here, we go through the waitlist and inform everyone which pick they have. Countless pictures and videos are shared on Facebook, allowing families to watch the puppies grow and develop! We also do professional photo shoots every week so families can watch them grow and change each week. 

 

A private Facebook group is used to communicate important information leading up to Homecoming Day. All important documents that are included in their take home folders, as well as all care package items are shared in this group for families to review ahead of time so that Homecoming Day can be all about the fun stuff instead! It also allows families to get to know one another and ask questions freely. We're THE ONLY BREEDER who gives families DAILY ACCESS INTO THE NURSERY so they can follow the puppies as they go through their puppy curriculum and different developmental milestones (typically beginning around 3 weeks of age!) Detailed information regarding our temperament testing and physical exams is also shared in this private group for families to review and use as a tool to help choose the puppy that best fits their needs/desires prior to choosing on Homecoming Day. 

 

On Homecoming Day, choices are made in the order of deposit received and selections are made in one hour time blocks. We have found this to be a sufficient amount of time for families to make their decision. Chosen puppies are updated in the private Facebook group so that families can follow along and see who is still available when it is their assigned time block. Our families refer to this affectionately as Puppy Draft Day! :P It's amazing how the process works out so well for everyone involved and is a lot of fun!

 

Although the adoption process is finished here, our relationship with our families is truly just beginning! We are grateful for the friendships we make and the lasting relationships that come from being a part of such a wonderful milestone in our families lives!

*Please note that our application does close from time to time. We try to keep our waitlist to a 6-9 month wait MAX.

Master Waitlist
Waitlist

CWB Master BERNEDOODLE Waitlist

It's important for us to keep our families updated on their place in our waitlist. We have decided to make our waitlist available 24/7 for your reference. Please keep in mind that we only update this periodically, and you are always welcome to reach out directly if you have any questions or concerns. Families usually have many opportunities to adopt within the first 6 months on our waitlist. Please keep in mind that this is ONLY FOR BERNEDOODLE ADOPTIONS. Our Purebred waitlist remains separate, as we only open it periodically.
