What Goes Into Our Pricing?
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 and well adjusted puppies. As such, we do add on these expenses in our pricing.
Our puppy prices range from $1000 to $1500. Deposit is $200.00 and goes toward the principal amount.

Reservation Lists and Deposit Policies
Our goal is to provide puppies with good temperaments, great looks, and ultimately in great health! While we can not 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.
Our general goal is to produce approximately 2-4 litters of Orange/White, 1-2 litters of Liver/White and 1 litter of Orange/White Roan annually.
At this point the approximate wait time for each color combination is
Orange/White = 3-6 months
Liver/White = 9-12months
(To see examples of what dogs in these color ranges look like, please click here)
These numbers are approximate and can vary significantly based on the many variables in our dog’s lives. We only breed our females if they are healthy and ready for pregnancy. Even then, there is no guarantee that they will have puppies, or how many they have if they do get pregnant.
Reservation Lists And Deposits
Our Reservation Lists is for future advertised litters (unborn puppies) from specific breedings. To be placed on a Reservation List for a specific litter, we require a $200.00 deposit. DEPOSIT MUST BE PAID 48 HOURS AFTER RECEIPT OF INVOICE OR YOU WILL NOT BE PUT ON THE LIST. Once you have been pre-approved and subsequently deposited, you will be placed onto the Specified Reservation List for That Litter (you can find that list under the Upcoming Litters page here). Deposits 100% Refundable during the waiting phase (before the puppies are born) and the first week after a puppy is born or in the event that we fail to provide you with a puppy that met the requirements you listed on the application. The deposit is 50% refundable between the 2nd and 6th week, and the deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE FOR ANY REASON after the first day of the puppy’s 6th week of life, so please be absolutely certain you want a puppy.
Deposits are transferable between litters for any reason before the puppies are born or after the puppies are born should there be puppies available on another litter – However, you will move to the last spot available on that list.
Please keep in mind that litter planning is truly guesswork, and nothing is guaranteed. We are working with nature and she can be finicky at times.
All lists get you access to Owners Facebook Page and our Litter Updates Page.
How we place puppies!
Placing puppies in the right home based on temperament and personality is the cornerstone of our breeding program. In the past, we have assessed each individual puppy’s personality and character to ensure a good fit for all homes. This is a growing process and is always changing and improving, so check back periodically for updates. 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 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 males:
1. A. Alexander (1st Pick Orange/White Female)
2. B. Barton (2nd Pick Orange/White Female)
3. C. Charleston (Orange/White 1st Pick Male)
4. YOU (2nd Pick Orange/White Male)
YOU MUST PICK A COLOR AND A GENDER THAT YOU WANT! It becomes far too difficult to inform others farther down on the list of what color/gender options they can reasonably expect to be available to them if several people above them state that they want ‘any puppy of any color or gender’. You MUST pick a gender and color preference, and 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. Another benefit is that if we do not produce a puppy that meets the options you selected on your application, you can ask for a 100% refund on your deposit. We want you to have what you want!
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 and details on 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 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, so no worries!
