Aisling Labradors Reservations and Policies
Thank you for your interest in an Aisling Labrador puppy.
Aisling offers Labrador puppies for sale through a process in which we get to know you and your understanding and expectations regarding this breed and the environment our puppies will be living in once they leave our home. All of this information is then used during our Puppy Pick Out appointments to guide you and us in choosing the right puppy for your family. When filling out the contact form found below, please include as much information as you can; examples of what we like to read about are - your experience or knowledge of the breed, and your reasons for wanting a Labrador Retriever, activities the dog will be participating in with your family, etc. You will receive information on the full cost of an Aisling Puppy AFTER we have received your contact form; if you are interested in moving forward after hearing from us the first time, a reply is needed to move the approval process forward.
Visitation Policy, Bio-Security and COVID: As small Breeders, we are not a kennel or a "facility". Our dogs live in our home with us and all puppies are whelped and raised in our home and yard. We practice standard measures of bio-security for the safety of all of our dogs and our newborn puppies, for this reason we do not allow visits until after the age of five weeks and all visits are by appointment after a reservation has been made. We will provide references from our puppy families or from our Vet upon request. You can visit our Facebook Page or our Video's to see all of our pets, our Sire and Dams and past and current litter photos and videos.
Non-Refundable but Transferable (ONE TIME) Holding Fee/Reservation Fee: $350.00 PayPal only": Reservations are a courtesy service provided by Aisling; a Holding Fee payment for this service is made through PayPal (link below). We accept three reservations per litter per gender. Once all reservations are sold for the litter, upon request, we will add your name to a waiting list. Our puppies are considered sold when a holding fee payment is received; as a service to you, a puppy is no longer made available to others; therefore holding fees are non-refundable but are transferable by request one time. We know that circumstances can change therefore we will move your reservation to another litter upon your request if you are unable to accept a puppy due to unforeseen circumstances.
Waiting Lists: Names are accepted for our waiting lists AFTER all reservations have been sold. In order to avoid having waiting lists that are too large to effectively manage, we do not accept any requests to be placed on a waiting list until AFTER all gender reservations are sold. In example, all reservations for a male from our Chocolate litter have been sold and we are NOW accepting names for a waiting list for that litter. You MUST ask to be placed on that list. After 5 names have been added per gender (5 for males/5 for females), the list is closed.
Those on our Waiting Lists receive the same communications (see below) from us during the process as those who have a reservation. Lists are contacted after the litter has been whelped which is when we will know how many of each gender may still be available. You are contacted in the order your name was placed on the list. If, after all five names have been contacted, a puppy is still available, that puppy will be available here on the website. Those who are on a waiting list for whom no puppy was available, will be notified BEFORE we open up Reservations for the next litters planned and given the opportunity to reserve a puppy from one of those litters. After that, any remaining reservations will be shown as "available" here on the website.
Communication - IMPORTANT: It is our goal to treat our Buyers as we would like to be treated and we expect the same from those to whom we extend this courtesy. Once a reservation has been placed, we will continue to communicate with you throughout the entire process. You will receive an email when a girl comes into season, after the mating, upon confirmation of a pregnancy and upon the birth of the litter followed by frequent updates on how the litter is progressing. You will be given the dates for both Pick Out and Pick Up dates shortly after the litter is born so that they may be scheduled into your calendars (times for these appointment will be emailed one week before each event). Your prompt response to each of these emails assures us that you remain committed to providing a home for one of the puppies.
Final Payment Information : Final cash payment of balance owed is due at the Puppy Pick Out appointment (see information below). We DO NOT allow the balance to be paid by PayPal or Credit Card. More information will be found on the Contract/Receipt.
Puppy Pick OUT - Five or Six Week Visit: Puppy Pick Out days are typically held on the Saturday and/or Sunday following the litter's five week birthday although this can change depending on when a litter is born to allow more time to access individual temperaments within the litter. Visits are scheduled according to the order in which a reservation was received, however, as our goal is to improve the breed in the next generation, we reserve the right to choose to keep a puppy from any litter that shows breeding potential. This may result in either a transferring of a holding fee/reservation fee to the next litter, or may make one or two puppies unavailable as a "first pick" which will result in a later date for "Pick-Out" appointments for the gender we have chosen to keep (visits will still be scheduled for you to meet the litter and final payment will be due).
On the Saturday following the 4th week birthday of the litter, we will contact you by email to schedule your appointment to pick out your puppy; you will need to confirm by 5 p.m. Monday and attend your appointment. If you are unable to attend the scheduled appointment, you may schedule an appointment to come meet your puppy on the following Saturday. Throughout the process, please update us with as much information as you can to aid us in guiding your puppy choice. Reminder: Once a holding fee/reservation is made, it is required that you reply to each communication from us to confirm your continued intent to provide a home for the puppy that is being held for you.
AKC LIMITED Registration: Puppies are sold under a Limited Registration and are to be spayed/neutered unless otherwise agreed in the Sales and Purchase Agreement (Females - no sooner than 12 months of age and/or 3 months after first heat cycle/Males so sooner than 18 - 24 months of age) unless otherwise stated in the final Sales and Purchase Agreement; the litters are registered and the registration form to transfer registration of your puppy to you from us is provided to you when you pick up your puppy. Registered names must include the pre-fix "Aisling's". Failure to register properly with the AKC voids the Breeder's Health Warranty. Registration to another organization as "Full" and/or without the pre-fix "Aisling's" will be a breach of contract.
Full AKC Registration: There is an additional fee for a "Full" AKC registered puppy and additional sales and purchase terms including genetic testing as well as agreeing to be mentored by Aisling Labradors or another experienced breeder. If you are interested in Full Registration, please let us know in follow-up correspondence during the approval process.
Pick UP Day (Take Home Day) - 8 weeks of age: Puppies go home at eight weeks old; Pick Up Day is nearly always on a Saturday to allow time for the puppy and the family to adjust before returning to week-day activities on Monday. If vacation or other commitments require that your puppy remain here beyond the scheduled Pick Up Day, there is a $30.00 per day boarding fee beginning on Sunday/Monday depending upon the Pick Up Day scheduled for the litter; if the puppy is not picked up at the newly scheduled pick up appointment, he/she will be made available to another family. Refunds of the balance of payment (less the non-refundable reservation fee) will be made AFTER the puppy has found another home less any additional costs incurred by us. ALL puppy sales are final subject only to Florida's Pet Laws and the terms of our sales and purchase contract and our Health Warranty.
Insurance: We provide certificates for 30 days of insurance from Trupanion with no waiting periods for accident or illness which may be by you activated during the 24 hours after pick-up. After 30 days, this insurance will expire but can be renewed with no lapse in coverage and no waiting periods if you so choose. We also provide for the AKC insurance coverage, also free to you for 30 days, however, there is a waiting period of five days with that policy; again, after 30 days you may choose to renew it with no lapse in coverage or additional waiting period. We encourage all of our Aisling Families to continue insurance coverage for at least the first two years of your puppy's life.
Microchips: Many Florida counties are going beyond the Florida Pet Laws and requiring microchips be part of the Health Certification (HC required by Florida Law). Beginning with our August 2019 litter, litters will be microchipped at the Health Certification exam. Microchips may be registered with FetchID (annual fee) and/or with AKC Reunite (lifetime).
Lifetime Support Guarantee
In the weeks leading up to Take Home Day, you will recieve documents through email with information on how to prepare for puppy's homecoming; information about the transition/honeymoon period, Crate and House Training etc.; these documents will answer nearly every question you may have as you begin life with your new puppy. Even so, we are available for any questions you may have during your puppy's transition from our home to yours and throughout its lifetime.
Once the approval process is completed and you have confirmed that you want to reserve a puppy from a specific litter, the holding fee payment must be received within 24 hours through the PayPal button below the Contact Form. In other words, we consider that reservation closed upon receiving your confirmation; after 24 hours without receipt of the reservation fee, that reservation is considered to be open again and made available to others.
We, like most other Breeders, reserve the right to use a different stud for any breeding. There may be times when a stud is not available due to health or other issues which may result in a litter of a different color due to the coat color genes all Labradors carry. The health and well-being of our Labradors comes first in all things. Thank you for your understanding.
