This will be a long post, so if you’re in for it – hello! If not — long story short, Al-Bark is phenomenal.
My husband and I decided we wanted a Goldendoodle as we both wanted an allergy-friendlier dog. When we began our search, Al-Bark was recommended to us. They seem to have a healthy rotation of puppies, so it wasn’t long before we spotted the pup we had been imagining.
The process was very straightforward.
1- Put a deposit in for an existing or future puppy.
2- Receive an update that puppies (with photos) are available to be reserved by gender.
3- Receive updates that individual photos have come out and the individual pup can be reserved.
4- Two weeks later, pick up the puppy at their site.
I will say, the location was very inconspicuous. There wasn’t a sign or house number, so we drove right by it the first time. Once we got there, we were greeted in the parking area.
‘Mel,’ now Bucky, was waiting for us in the main space. He was beyond excited to see us. We met and played for a few minutes, and then got down to the adoption business. We were given a folder with all of the essentials and walked through the process paper by paper. All of our questions were answered before we thought to ask. We couldn’t have been better prepared.
Bucky has been with us for 6 weeks (and one day) now, and he has brought an entirely new light into our lives. He is sweet and loving, goofy with a spitfire personality, and is an incredibly quick learner. He can be the biggest snuggle bug and has an enormous amount of energy. He has made friends with everyone he has met so far — even the vet was impressed by him.
Al-Bark could not be doing a better job raising their puppies, and we are thankful for our healthy and happy pup.
