We will keep him/her until 8 weeks of age and provide veterinary exams and the first set of vaccinations.

During your puppy's time with our family, we will:

• Give him opportunities to be curious and explore in tunnels, boxes, and with balls and various toys
• Introduce him to adults and children
• Coach him regarding appropriate play with humans
• Introduce him to crate training
Puppy Visitation Policy
The only way puppies receive immunity to diseases and bacteria is through mother’s milk. Puppies can easily contract diseases and infections prior to vaccinations. Therefore, for the safety and health of our puppies, we do not let anyone come to see puppies until they have had their first vaccination.
Also, for the health and safety of our pets and yours, we do not allow anyone to bring their pets to “visit” or meet a potential new “family member.” After pups reach 7.5 weeks old, they will have received their first vaccination. We are happy to update our families on our adoption list with pictures of the puppies growing along the way!
Puppy Allocation Process
Australian Labradoodle puppies must mature to seven to eight weeks old to be allocated… Most important is that the Puppy get their ideal family and you get the puppy with the ideal personality, energy etc. We allocate puppies to families based on a combination of factors including preferences stated on your application, with personality and temperament fit taking priority. We look at your family situation and lifestyle to make the best possible fit for you. COLOR SHOULD NEVER BE THE FIRST PRIORITY IN SELECTING THE BEST FIT FOR YOUR FAMILY. We ask for your trust that we will make the best decision for you based on the time we spend socializing, caring for and getting to really know your future puppy. Breeder reserves the right to hold back any pups for breeding program at any time.
PayPal is only accepted for puppy deposit and adds a 3% fee.
