Frequently Asked Questions
On Purchasing A Puppy
~Why Buy From WeKay?~
We work very hard to breed a high quality, well adjusted poodle... either Multicolored or Solid Colored. We are very particular about our mom's and dad's health, conformation and their personalities and we believe it shows in our babies.
We often hear from potential puppy buyers that they aren't looking for a "show dog"... just a "pet"... pet or not, most people looking for a poodle want that poodle to be beautiful to look at and have brains to go along with their beauty. That is what we strive to provide. I have seen many poodles that were bought very inexpensively (and some not so inexpensively) that are so far from what a poodle should look like and how they should act, it's quite sad. Standard Poodles are the NUMBER ONE smartest breed on the planet. They should be happy, outgoing, easy to train and pretty much smarter than your average fifth grader ;-) We believe we breed the epitome of any size poodle and are very proud to say so. We are sure that if you ever own a great one like the one's we raise, you will probably end up with MPS ... it's a disease... called Multiple Poodle Syndrome!
~Where Do Your Dogs Live?~
Our parents are not kept in runs, they live in our house... they are our pets. They are crated at night and when we are not home (for their safety) All babies are born and stay at our house until they reach 5 weeks of age. We also perform the Bio-Sensor exercises to produce smarter, more confident babies. At 5 weeks of age, they are moved to our boarding and grooming facility so that they can be socialized with lots of strange people (grooming and boarding clients), sounds, smells and new dogs. They learn to go outside to go potty. They learn about grooming and develop some manners.
~Do You Offer A Guarantee?~
We offer a 26 month guarantee on all of our puppies. Please review our Puppy Contract by clicking here.
~Is My Puppy Registered?~
All of our puppies are registered with AKC and UKC. Since we do not sell breeding rights with our puppies, we hold their registration papers until proof of spay or neuter is provided.
~Can I Breed My Puppy?~

~How Do I Reserve A Puppy?~
We no longer accept deposits before puppies are here, only names/phone numbers. The deposits in hand at this time will get first choice then it will be first come, first serve. I will post the puppies online and you will be able to pick your puppy then. Thanks for understanding.
~How Do I Make A Deposit/Payment~
Once you choose your puppy, you can pay the deposit of $100 to hold your puppy. If our female doesn't have the puppy you were hoping for, I will refund your deposit OR you can move it to a future litter (your choice). You can pay the deposit by Paypal by going to their website at ... my email to send it to is . Please try to send it as "Friends and Family" so there are no fees on either end. For the remaining balance, CASH IS PREFERRED but you can also bring a cashiers check or money order made out to Wendy Grotheer.
~Picking Up Your Puppy~
We allow puppies to go to their new homes between the ages of 7 and 9 weeks. At 7 weeks, they can only be picked up at our location. Can ship at 8 weeks of age.
~Shipping Your Puppy~
If shipment of your puppy is needed within the U.S., the price is $395. That includes the crate, health certificate and airfare. We prefer to use United Airlines as they have a Pet Safe Program and are able to ship year round. If you prefer that your puppy be hand delivered, contact us and it can be arranged.
We no longer ship Worldwide.
All puppies are sold with Limited AKC registration. This means that you are purchasing a puppy that is for a pet only and not for breeding purposes.
