About the
Breed Wait Times Chart


  • How often is this chart updated?

    The information in this chart is updated weekly.

  • What is this number?

    The time range given is the AVERAGE historical wait time an adoptive family is waiting from the time they place their deposit until they receive their first announcement from our Matching Team.

  • Can I make plans based on this number?

    The wait times are only an estimate based on historical data, and not a guarantee.

  • How did you get this number on the chart?

    The wait times listed take into account the time our adoptive families are waiting (demand) as well as the puppies we anticipate from our family network of breeders (supply).

  • Where am I on the waitlist?

    This chart is the most current and updated information we have for you to answer the question, “Where am I on the waitlist?” Most of our families are on more than one breed’s waitlist and their decisions directly affect your wait time. Giving you a time range is the most accurate estimate we can provide.

  • Why don’t you know exactly what puppies you have coming up this year?

    We are not a puppy mill, so do not have a required breeding schedule for our network of family breeders. They are given the freedom to breed their privately owned family pet when the timing is best for them.

  • How has Covid affected our wait time?

    If a family in our breeding network experiences Covid (as many have this year), they typically have decided not to breed their pet during that heat cycle. This means that they must wait until 6 months later at their pet’s next heat cycle to breed her. We want each litter to be planned for and wanted, but this directly affects your wait time.

  • Limited Supply

    Our puppies are family-raised, so we do not have an endless supply.

  • Deposit Date

    We match our adoptive families to their puppies by deposit date to be fair to everyone.

  • Delivery Services

    If you’re open to a road trip or using our Delivery Services (https://www.crockettdoodles.com/delivery-pickup ) then choosing “Any Location” on your account preferences will allow you to receive announcements from all of our families.

  • Can I affect my potential wait time?

    You need to decide which of these is your priority: adopting ASAP or adopting exactly the pup you want.

    • If adopting sooner is more important, then include lots of the options in your account preferences and choose “Any Location” for your pup. This will allow you to receive more announcements sooner.
    • On the other hand, if you have something very specific in mind in the puppy you want to adopt, that’s wonderful! Make sure your preferences on your account reflect that, but please be prepared to wait longer until you’re high enough on the waitlist and that specific puppy is available to you.
  • Can I change my preferences?

    You are welcome to change your account preferences at any time for any reason in your account and it will not change your deposit date.
