How did you pay for your puppy?

I'm supposed to pick up a puppy on Monday, I have already put in a deposit, but not sure what to do now.

Did you pay the outstanding amount before picking up the puppy? Or after picking up? How? Check? Bank transfer?

The other time I bought a puppy was a long time ago, and I honestly don't remember the details.

Bank transfer on collection.

Cash on collection.

I was given the option of bank transfer or cheque prior to collection or cash when we picked him up.

I paid cash for my first dog, but the prices have gone up considerably now.

Deposit plus cash on collection in the past, but bank transfer of the balance just prior to collection is becoming more common.

Bam transfer when I picked her up, breeder checked it had gone into her bank whilst was there.

You mean when you are there, and do the transfer on your banking app?

Online before you leave home to collect the puppy is the method I know about.

I would have had to pay by bank transfer the day before collection. Personally I preferred the cash at collection option.

Deposit and bank transfer on collection via a banking app.

I paid by bank transfer on collection. Same time as she was sorting the 1 month insurance paperwork.

Bank transfer on collection for us too.

I did bank transfer for both the deposit and the final balance.

Deposit then bank transfer once we arrived at breeders house. They checked it had gone in whilst we were there. Did it all via our banking app.

I paid the night before via bank transfer as was getting her from a friend. Currently I'd do an instant bank transfer when there. Not before in case you arrive and there are problems and I don't imagine they'll let you leave with the puppy without having paid

Also I assume you've not seen puppy yet due to current circumstances so definitely wouldn't be paying before you do

We went and view her put the deposit down and then paid when we collected her cash both times

Have had 2 puppies over the years- first time was cash on pick up. Second time was bank transfer - second time was from a family friend so payment schedule in instalments

Cash on collection, which I preferred as I could then actually see the puppy and have it in my hands before handing the money over - so many scams around I was very dubious about bank transfer before as we hadn't been able to do anything other than video call.
