Terms & Conditions

We require every enquiry to be aware of Pocket Puppies' Terms and Conditions before they commit to being a potential new owner of a Cavoodle. The following policies are in place and must be acknowledged and accepted.

When you adopt a puppy I also send through the link to our Terms & Conditions so that you are aware of the policies that you, the purchaser, are accepting when you confirm to adopt a cavoodle from Pocket Puppies.

Section 1

1.0

We are in accordance with New South Wales Government Industry & Investment Animal Welfare Code of Practice of Bredding Dogs and Cats, section 9.1.2.11, pg 26.

As quoted in the Code of Practice:

'Dogs or cats should not be sold to inappropriate purchasers.' 

  • Pocket Puppies' reserve the right to refuse the sale of any puppy to any person for whatever reason, if the party that has been refused has already made payment, a refund will be made immediately, less Paypal fees (if applicable) and an administration fee of $50.

1.1

  • Once payment has been placed upon a puppy, $1500 is non-refundable for purchases within Australia and $2300 plus the flight cost for international purchases, there is no exceptions of circumstance, nor is the time period from the placement of payment to notification of cancellation of sale relevant. This clause is made redundant if statement 1.1 occurs.
  • Our $1500 fee for domestic and $2300 fee plus flight is required in the event that the purchasing party discontinue the adoption of a puppy(s) the fee is then used to cover the expenses that occur from the rejection of sale. 

1.2

  • We do not in any form hold puppies until a written statement (email) is sent to Pocket Puppies confirming that they wish to purchase a specific puppy - the holding period between the acceptance to purchase a puppy and receiving payment is 12 hours; after this time if payment has not been received, your puppy will no longer be on hold and be available to others to purchase.

1.3

  • Once payment has been placed upon a puppy it is non-transferrable - this is in the instance that you are no longer wanting the puppy you have chosen (before receiving the puppy) and are wishing to change to a different puppy that is available. This is permitted, however, the amount of $1500 for domestic purchases and $2300 for international purchases, will be lost and not be retractable from the alternative puppy's purchase price. Please note: completing this action may cause a revision by Pocket Puppies of your acceptability of adopting a puppy and may result in a rejection. In the instance of a rejection clause 1.1. is in place.

1.4

  • When the collection details for your puppy are sent to the purchaser, the purchaser is required to confirm that their puppy will be collected to take to the new owner's dwelling. If the purchaser does not confirm that their puppy will be collected 7 days prior to the designated arrival and makes no attempt to make contact in regards to the collection - this action is representative that the purchaser no longer wishes to purchase the puppy and all rights and $1500 will be forfeited for a domestic purchase and $2300 plus the flight cost for a international purchase.
