Thackerville Retrievers
Puppy Reservation, Pricing and Shipping Information

To Reserve a Puppy
If you like what you see on our web site and would like one of our puppies for your family, we strongly encourage you to contact us for availability and deposit information. 

Selection Process
At two weeks old, the puppies are marked with a color band.  This way we can keep good notes on each pup and it’s development. 

Many of our clients live too far away to visit the kennel.  I have developed a selection process that uses digital photography along with the telephone so we can make the best possible choice together. If you are going to be in the area and would like to visit the litter you are more than welcome to come by and see the puppies. This is done by appointment only.  We allow visitors when the pups reach 5 weeks of age.  The puppy selection is based on the deposit order: first deposit, first choice right on down to the last puppy.  Don't feel bad if you get the last one.  Our last puppy is better that most pick of the litters.

Our puppies are priced from $1000 and up.  Puppies come with Full AKC registry.   

The deposit for any litter is $200. You will be placed on a waiting list in the order the deposit was received  If the litter does not produce a healthy puppy as indicated on your deposit form, your deposit will returned to you or be applied to the next litter of your choice. The option is yours. 

Shipping Options 
Shipping via Airlines is available to most major cities in the US. International shipping can be arranged too. Contact us to work out the details. Shipping  can be affected by the weather. If it's too hot or too cold we do not ship.  Domestic air shipment adds $400 to the cost of the puppy. This includes a health certificate, a large crate that you keep and transportation to the airport.  

We also have personal delivery. We bring your new puppy to your area or home.  The cost of this service starts at $100.00 and is based on mileage.  (.55 cents per mile round trip)

We currently have about 2-3 litters a year. To place a deposit, first e mail or call (863) 634-4844. If we don’t answer, please leave a message. We check messages daily. I will then send a deposit form to you via e mail. 

I strongly recommend using the PayPal System located at the bottom of the puppy page. Mail is slow here. I have had many instances of a mailed deposit arriving too late, causing great disappointment at missing a puppy from a particular litter. Deposits are recorded date and time they arrive here, and that determines who gets a puppy and in what order selection is made.

Pay Pal, for those of you who haven't heard about it, is a safe and easy way to send money to anyone using the Internet. I've used it many times and found it’s really handy. Pay Pal reservation deposits arrive here minutes after you hit Send, so if you're concerned about getting a deposit in quickly, that's the way to go.
