First, we want to learn about you and what you are looking for in a puppy! We require that you fill out and send in our Adoption Application Form.
Once we receive your application, we will review it and get back to you. We'll discuss upcoming litters with you, and let you know about our current waiting list (usually four to eight months).
When you're ready to say 'yes!' to adding one of our Wonderful Labradoodles to your family, we require a non-refundable reservation fee of $500. This secures your place on the waiting list. The reservation fee can be paid via e-mail transfer to email@example.com.
We will email you when your puppy is born, and let you know what to expect in the weeks to come.
When your puppy is 3 weeks old, we'll ask you to provide more information about your lifestyle, personalities, and expectations for your puppy. This information, in addition to your original application, will help us match you with a puppy.
The final payment of $2,440 (includes GST) is required when the puppy is 6 weeks old.
Between 6- 6.5 weeks, we will have a 'Meet the Puppies' Day. via Facebook live or Facetime appointment. You will be given a day and time for you and your family to meet and to ask all your questions and sign a purchase contract sent via email. At this time we ask for your top three puppy preferences.
We perform conformation and temperament testing (Volhard aptitude test) at 7 weeks of age, after which your puppy will be allocated to you. You will receive an e-mail introducing you to your new family member.
At 8 weeks old, the wait is finally over and the puppies are ready to leave us. You will be given a pick-up date and time to come and collect your new family member. If your puppy needs to extend their visit due to travel or a family needing to pick up the puppy beyond pick up day(s) there will be a $30/day fee.
In the event that we cannot provide you with a puppy or if you cannot take a puppy at the time of availability, you can switch litters or wait until the timing is better for you. The deposit is non-refundable.

We start potty training all our puppies around 5-6 weeks to use the doggie door so they will get used to going outdoors to potty (weather permitting), which translates into a much easier time for you when it comes to house breaking.
We begin the crate training process at 6 weeks
We understand that our puppies are a significant investment. All our breeders have gone through testing as well there are substantial costs associated with raising a litter of high quality Australian labradoodles. The value of this health testing is passed on to the adopting family because there is a much lower risk of health issues in the offspring. Our mission is to produce puppies that will live a long, happy and healthy life with their owners.
