I understand that pricing is always a consideration when purchasing a new puppy.
Let me just start off by saying, you get what you pay for. Edenbright Brittanys puts time, money, and effort into raising quality, healthy, well-adjusted puppies. As such, we do add these expenses to our pricing.
Our puppy prices range from $1200 to $1800 The deposit is $200.00 and goes toward the principal amount.
Our goal is to produce a puppy with an excellent temperament, great looks, and great health! While we cannot guarantee what color or gender each litter will produce, we can help you get a good idea of what to expect based on previous litters. We have general goals of how many litters we would like to produce and then rely upon heat cycles and dam body mass index to be exceptional before we breed. If there are concerns for the health of our dams, we won’t breed them during that heat cycle.
A deposit must be paid to reserve a spot on any planned litter or any available puppy from our current litter. To be placed on a reservation List for a specific litter:
- Fill out an application (you can find the link to the application here).
- After I have received the application, I will contact you via e-mail so that we may speak further about the options we have available. I may ask a few more questions in the email (and feel free to ask me anything as well!). If everything seems to be a good fit, I will request we have a phone conversation. The phone conversation is a vitally important step in our selection process, and you cannot move forward with the purchase of an Edenbright Puppy without first speaking with me. This phone call gives me a chance to understand more about what type of puppy you may be looking for, and it gives you a chance to learn more about Edenbright Brittanys and our puppies. Once the phone conversation is over, if you are ready to place a deposit, I will send you an invoice via the email you provide on the application.
DO NOT PUT IN AN APPLICATION IF YOU ARE NOT SERIOUS ABOUT MOVING FORWARD!
Our deposit price is $200.00. THE DEPOSIT MUST BE PAID 48 HOURS AFTER RECEIPT OF THE INVOICE OR YOU WILL NOT BE PUT ON THE LIST. Once you have been pre-approved and subsequently deposited, you will be placed on the Specified Reservation List for That Litter (you can find the running reservation lists for all of our litters under the Upcoming Litters page here).

How we place puppies!
Placing puppies in the right home based on temperament and personality is the cornerstone of our breeding program. Ultimately, I have the last say in which homes our puppies go to. We carefully asses each and every puppy’s individual personality throughout their 9 weeks here by keeping meticulous records pertaining to temperament with their littermates, reaction to stimuli and stressors, and their behavior during one on one playtime with me. This is a growing process and is always changing and improving. However, we believe we have found a system that SO many of our buyers really enjoy. We strive to include everyone in the puppy-picking process in a way that brings excitement, joy, and early bonding with the puppies before they even go home. Below you will find a step-by-step explanation of how our picking process works.
Step One: Place a Deposit
The first thing you will want to do is fill out an application and place a deposit on a current or future litter. This deposit gives you a number on our list. That number can mean different things depending on where you are on the list and the preferences you and others above on the list you have selected.
Below is an example of a typical list. On this list, there are 3 people who have placed deposits. Let’s say you wanted an Orange and White Male. While you will be 4th to be contacted to discuss which puppy you would like to take home, you would actually have 2nd pick of all the available Orange and White males:
1. A. Alexander (1st Pick Orange/White Female)
2. B. Barton (2nd Pick Orange/White Female)
3. C. Charleston (1st Pick Orange/White Male)
4. YOU (2nd Pick Orange/White Male)
YOU MUST PICK A COLOR AND A GENDER THAT YOU WANT! You can only pick one of each (i.e. Orange and White Male, or Liver and White Female). While you may feel it limits your options, it makes it much fairer for everyone else on our lists – and it also makes your decision much easier – you would be surprised how overwhelming it becomes trying to pick one of 10 puppies to take home when your options are wide open. Of course, because our program is based on personality and fit, if there are no puppies that meet your physical preferences or if there are puppies that meet those preferences but are determined by me to be unsuitable to your home and lifestyle, or aren’t suitably healthy, your deposit is 100% refundable or transferable. We want you to have the puppy that you want!
You will NOT be able to change your color/gender preferences EXCEPT in the event that you transfer a deposit to another list, OR that you agree to move to the last available spot of your current litter’s list in order to choose from whichever puppies are left available, if any, after the selection process is complete.
Step Two: Follow our Owner’s Page and Litter Updates Page
Once you’ve placed a deposit, you will be given a link to the Owner’s Page and the Litter Updates Page. The owner’s page allows you to see photos of our past puppies and discuss various topics with our past owners. The Litter Updates page is where I will post updates on breedings, and unborn and born litters – including photos, calendars, important dates, and videos. This is where you will get all of the information on the puppies you will use for picking out your puppy if you cannot be here in person to do so. I will post weekly to bi-weekly photos and videos beginning at about 4 weeks old, with the photos and videos becoming more frequent as the puppies get older and begin to show their personalities.
YOU MUST FOLLOW THE LITTER PAGE FOR UPDATES – If you do not have a Facebook page, make one or use someone else’s. I will not text people individually – if you are unconcerned about updates and do not follow the page, you will be contacted at the six-week mark to pick out your puppy and be given the pickup date. Unless you call me for an update, you will only receive them via Facebook.
Step Three: Pick Your Puppy
I will call you at some point during the 6th week. Picking is a process, and it can take an entire week to complete as I go down the list in order. As puppies are picked, the list on our website will be updated to reflect what puppies have been chosen. Once I get to your name, I will text you to set up a phone conversation. During this conversation, we will also discuss your plans to pick your puppy up after he/she is 8 Weeks Old if we have not already done so. If I do not hear back from you within 24 hours, you will move to the bottom of the list and I will move on.
If you would like to come in person to pick up your puppy YOU MUST SCHEDULE THAT VISIT EARLY ON! You will be given the dates for open visitation.
My advice during and before picking is to have two or three puppies that you would like to choose from rather than have your heart set on one, especially if you are not in one of the top spots.
Step Four: Pick up your puppy!
Even though I allow you to pick out which puppy you would like before they are 8 weeks, they will not go home with you until after they are 8 weeks! Additionally, I reserve the right to place puppies in homes where I believe they will thrive. If I do not think a puppy will do well in your home and with your lifestyle, you will not get that puppy. I also reserve the right at any time to choose a pick of the litter to keep or to place in an exceptional home. This does not happen too often. I will know ahead of time whether or not a litter is going to have puppies in it that I will possibly keep and/or place in exceptional homes. It’s not something that will often be a surprise last-moment decision.
If, at ANY POINT, I feel that you do not respect your place or the place of other buyers on the list, that you feel entitled to change your options mid-way through the process, or that you become competitive or combative with myself or other buyers on the list over puppies, I will take you off of the list, find a different home for your puppy and cease all communication with you. In this instance, the deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE as you have wasted my time and the puppy’s time in your refusal to follow the terms and conditions laid out in the deposit agreement. I will ALWAYS reach out to you in writing well beforehand in the event that a puppy that meets your preferences or stated criteria is NOT available. This needs to be explicitly understood.
