The reservation fee for a Landon J Farms Labrador Retriever is $200.00. This secures getting a puppy from us and it does apply towards your purchase price. Prices of our litters are determined by the sire/dam pairing, limited or full registration, imported bloodlines, titles in lineage etc… Please make sure to speak/message with me prior to sending a reservation to make sure we still have availability. Sending the form AND the reservation fee completes the reservation process.
Reservations for a current or upcoming litter are non-refundable, but you may roll your reservation to a future litter one time, communication is key. You may pay your reservation fee thru Venmo or CashApp. If you do not have one of these, please let me know, I can use PayPal if needed as a last resort. The reservation fee may also be in the form of a check, made payable to Marianne Chester Holtz. Please notify if you are mailing a check, your reservation will be marked as complete once the check has arrived and clears through the bank. The payment methods are as follows- Venmo: @LandonJames (If you need my phone number for this it is 573-552-5394). CashApp is: $LandonJFarms
The remaining balance for your puppy is due at the time of puppy pick-up at 8 weeks old. If you are unable to pick up your puppy during the week the puppies are available, communicate with me and together we will schedule a date. The balance of the puppy is DUE at the 8-week mark, even if we are holding the puppy for a short time after the 8 weeks. If we are holding your puppy for more than 1 week after puppy pick-ups, care is $50.00 a week and due upon pick-up. We will not hold a puppy for more than 2-3 weeks, with that being said, there are exceptions, it just needs to be communicated ie; traveling, work schedules, prior commitments that would keep you away... This is a critical bonding time and the puppies come first.
We enjoy having puppy pick ups at our home. If there is a distance between us, we are willing to meet within a reasonable distance if time allows. If our travel time is over 90 miles, we charge a $100.00 travel fee. Typically, we do not travel over 2 hours to meet unless it has been discussed and agreed on. If you are local, we do not mind meeting locally as well. We understand that not everyone wants to travel a long gravel road for a few miles. When coming to our home, please check your GPS with me, there are several ways here and some of the roads your GPS will take you are not the most efficient routes. Storms can also be a factor with low bridges. We ask that you DO NOT bring an existing dog with you to our home, though it may be in good conscious, it causes too much excitement with our own dogs and runs a risk of cross contamination/biosecurity hazards, which puts new litters at risk. When coming to our home we ask that you refrain from visiting other breeders, dog parks and/or shelters for 2 weeks prior. If you have been around a dog with a contagious illness within 4 weeks of visiting, we will meet you in town- this is non-negotiable. We are strict about our safety measures and most people understand the importance of this, it is in the best interest of our dogs, puppies and property. Upon arrival, please park at our front gate and one of us will meet you to walk you in.
