Our breeding dogs are health-tested prior to breeding and subjected to Penn Hip and/or OFA, PRA, and other DNA clearances. We strive to produce dogs absent of the genetic diseases prevalent in many purebred dogs today. We offer a 2-year Health Warranty against severe genetic defects and pledge to provide lifetime consulation support for your dog.
We aim for a "personal" touch in our relationship with our puppy families and are happy to answer any questions you might have about the breed, about our dogs and about what you might expect from an Australian Labradoodle Puppy.

NOV 2020: We cannot accept any more applications for puppies through June 2021 due to unprecedented demand for Australian Labradoodle puppies across the country. Please stay safe and healthy! (If you are already in our "extended family" of owners and their friends and family, please email directly for availability.)
You are welcome to email or phone any time with questions about the breed or about our program at Golden Gate Labradoodles.
GUARDIAN HOME OPPORTUNITIES
Because we want our breeding dogs to be "stars" in their own loving families, we seek "Guardian Homes" for both puppies and adults within the greater San Francisco Bay Area. A Guardian Home will keep the dog as their own family pet, while we retain breeding rights for a specified number of litters (in the case of females), after which she will be spayed and retired to the family forever. Males will need to remain intact for 3-5 years. Please phone or email for more information on this opportunity.

A few key facts about our program...
You can follow how our puppies grow on our
Our dogs live in our homes as beloved family members or in loving Guardian Homes. The adult dogs play an important role in socializing puppies and teaching them canine "Good Manners," while the human family members devote countless hours to individualized puppy care.
"Home-Raised in Small Batches"
Puppies are whelped and brought up at the center of our household--not in a kennel or back room--which provides them with the best opportunity to experience the sights, sounds, and smells of a busy household and ensures that they receive plenty of attention and oversight throughout their various developmental phases.
Puppies are exposed to a variety of different stimuli including vacuum cleaners, car rides, a cat, chickens, annoying pop music, unusual culinary aromas, an excess of televised sporting events, and the bagpipes!
Careful but Extensive Socialization
While we are extremely careful about keeping young puppies protected from disease and from stress, we try to expose the puppies to a variety of humans throughout their lives with us.
While we appreciate good-looks as much as the next person, temperament and sound health are the key factors behind breeding quality Labradoodles. Can you judge a book by its cover? We evaluate our puppies' personalities extensively and focus on achieving the optimal match between puppy and family.
