Fox Creek Farm hosts a visitors’ day only when we are accepting applications. We accept applications during “open enrollment” which typically lasts about a week each time we open the waiting list which occurs only 2-3 times a year. The applications received during open enrollment are for litters arriving for the following four to six months. Please do not visit any other kennel or shelter the day you plan to come to Fox Creek Farm to minimize the risk of spreading germs to our puppies. Your visit will include a tour of the facility, interaction with dogs of many sizes, and a question/answer session. At no time will any visitors be allowed to interact with puppies. No one will be admitted without a scheduled appointment. Please follow the directions below as GPS will not bring you an appropriate way if it can find us at all.
The next visitors’ day is expected to be scheduled in May or June. We will accept visitors from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The last appointment accepted is 2 p.m. You must have an appointment to visit. Due to the high number of families that typically attend, it will be standing room only. We typically try to limit it to 5 families per hour. Please limit your visit to one hour. Only well behaved children are welcome to attend. When the date is set, please email FCFGoldendoodles@gmail.com with the time you would like to arrive and the number of people in your party. Applications will be available for families interested in joining the waiting list. Please bring a check or cash to cover the $300 application fee. Applications accepted at this time will be for summer and fall litters.
