Welcome To The SBK Family!

We are so excited for you to include us in your journey to adding a new member to your family.

Now is the hard part, waiting for your new puppy! Don’t worry, there are lots of things you can do in the meantime.

​While On The Waitlist

1. Contact Us. Please say hi, introduce yourself, and let us know you are interested and would like to place a deposit.

2. We will contact you back, confirm your deposit, and you will go on our waiting list.

3. Our monthly emails will keep you up to date on our litter plans, and give you helpful information on how to prepare, and great information on socialization, potty training, and what to do once your new puppy arrives.

Once Puppies Arrive

4. When a litter arrives, we will go down our list in order of deposits. If you confirm you are interested in a puppy from that litter, we will ask you to send an “About Our Family” email, so we can match you with the perfect puppy for your family.

5. Keep an eye on our socials for lots of photos, videos, and information! We will work with families to arrange transportation during this time.

6. At 7 weeks, temperament testing will aid us in the final match of puppy and family, and we will confirm final transportation arrangements for your puppy.

7. During week 8, the puppies will go home.

Once Puppies Go Home

8. We will be available for the duration of your puppies life for support, guidance, questions, concerns, and to share in milestones and joys.

Should You Get A Puppy?

We ask you to consider these things before applying for a puppy.

1. Do you have the time to potty train a puppy?  That means every 2-4 hours for the first few months.

2. What are your local training resources?  Do you have a vet? Where is the nearest emergency vet? How will you afford an after-hours vet visit if your puppy eats a baby sock, dental floss, or has bloody diarrhea at 2 am? Do you have $50 to call the animal poison control? What about pet insurance?

3. Do you plan on having children in the next 15 years? If so, constant socialization with children of all ages will be extremely important.  If you don’t know any kids, is there a local park? Can you walk past a school playground? 

How much do dogs really cost?

Breakdown of potential costs

Initial costs $4,600

  • purchase price $4,000​
  • transportation $300-$500
  • puppy crate/bowls/etc $100

First-year $3,000

  • pet insurance​ $300
  • food/treats/etc $1,200
  • heartworm/tick/flea $500
  • checkups/vaccines $200
  • spay/neuter $350

 Subsequent years $2,150

You can spend more, or you can spend less, but those numbers are in the middle. Vet bills may be more, food may be less. I also urge you to have a credit card for just emergency pet expenses. Emergency care for a pet can be expensive, and often payment is required upfront, which can be difficult at 3 am. 

How much is a Sleeping Bear Puppy?

Our prices allow us to provide the best puppies, with the best start, to the best families. If this amount is not in your price range, please consider a dog from your local shelter. 

A nonrefundable deposit confirms your commitment and interest and assures us of that commitment.

A $1,000 non-refundable deposit is required to sign up for the waitlist (Step 2.)

A $3,000 remaining due within 10 days when interest is confirmed in a litter (Step 4.) 

Why Is Genetic and Health Testing So Important?

Genetic testing is important for a Cavapoo breeder, or any dog breeder, to do.

The biggest reason is health.

There are certain genes that, when a dog has 2 copies, can cause disease.  With one copy, a dog is called a “carrier” and will not express the gene, or have the disease.

When dog breeding, this aids in mate selection as we do not want to breed two dogs who carry for the same gene.

Health clearances are done on parent dogs, mostly after the age of 2, to check the health of certain organs, joints, and tissues.  For example, a hip clearance means the dog has good hips and is not prone to hip dysplasia.

Dogs can be “cleared through parentage” but when available, it’s best for peace of mind to test the dogs before breeding, too.

Health Checked is not the same and can mean that the breeder themselves looked the dog over, or a vet could have.  While that is great, that does not clear the dog of genetic diseases or health issues that can only be seen by x-ray and other means.

Why is early socialization important?

Early socialization is important because it allows puppies to normalize people of all different shapes, sizes, and descriptions.

Without this, a puppy may grow up into an adult dog who is scared of men in hats, or Halloween costumes, or in extreme cases, may harm a baby or toddler because they assume they are playthings, or small animals to be chased.
