Sunny Ridge Doodles is owned and operated by one family. We are just regular people working hard doing what we love. Any and all communication whether its email, text/phone call, Instagram, or website is 100% with me, Kelly. No partners, no assistants, no runaround.
I do my very best to make myself available to all new potential puppy families, those on the paid wait list, and families who've brought their puppy home - for life! Text is the best way to reach me but calls are welcome 7 days a week. I do not have "office hours" but 10am-5pm are my preferred hours for correspondence.
We aim to photograph our puppies at 2, 4 & 6 weeks old. This schedule best showcases their growth and development. Proper photo sessions take 2-6 hours depending on number of puppies and their age. Here at Sunny Ridge, we are working sun up to sun down seven days a week balancing the care of our dogs & puppies, raising our two kids, and maintaining our property and wellbeing of all our other animals. Sometimes even finding time for ourselves. Finding that delicate family/work balance in life is a challenge. We have to ask that buyers please not request additional photos or videos outside of that 2 week schedule. We occasionally post bonus pictures & videos on Instagram @sunnyridgedoodles
Its of utmost importance for us as parents and professionals to protect not only ourselves and our children, but also our adult dogs and puppies from communicable disease, injury, and even theft. Therefore, we do not accommodate any visits to our residence to meet puppies aside from the predetermined Meet & Greet/Take Home Day which is hosted at our Ranch entrance away from our personal home. This appointment is exclusively for families who have reserved a puppy with a deposit. Masks are not required!
This is a concern that leads many families to seek a Doodle. Dog Allergies express is multiple forms and the type and severity are unique to each individual. Doodles are very often the perfect solution to common dog allergies such as aggravated sinuses, and itchy/watery eyes. Doodles have a low-nonshedding coat that consists of hair not fur and this really cuts down on the dander. HOWEVER, Asthma is not necessarily caused by a dogs coat and is not always lessened by a Doodle. For this reason, we regretfully must decline to place our puppies in households where Asthma caused by dogs is a concern. Our goal is to find the best forever homes for each of our puppies, and we have dealt with multiple rehoming situations due to Asthma. We sincerely apologize.
While selections are done via photos and phone consults, all our puppies are officially purchased in person with cash at the Meet & Greet/Take Home Day group appointment. This very important hour long appointment allows families the opportunity to get hands on with the puppy they reserved and make final evaluations and decisions. We highly prefer in-person purchases for this reason, but we still work with families all over the US. All sales are final once a puppy leaves our property & care. This includes puppies picked up by a 3rd party (Friend or Family member, Trainer or Flight Nanny). We are always able to accept a returned puppy at any age for any reason, but no refunds will be provided, no exceptions.
All puppies are sold as PETS ONLY with a written and signed Spay & Neuter agreement as part of our contract. Puppies must be altered between 6-10 months old (under 60lbs) or 8-12 months (over 60lbs). This procedure can be delayed for health reasons ONLY if discussed and agreed upon with us. Our doodle puppies are NEVER sold with Breeding Rights and are NEVER to be used for breeding. If you are not comfortable spaying or neutering your dog within our required time frame, or have any intention of breeding please seek an alternative program to purchase from. Failure to comply with the signed agreement will void the health warranty. Legal action will be taken for breach of contract.
