Authentic Australian Multigenerational Labradoodles in the Greater Bay Area and Northern California
Adopting a Labradoodle Puppy:
We look forward to talking to you in person about the best puppy for your home, keeping in mind your desires with respect to gender, coat, size, and color.   (For more information on our selection and reservaton process, please see "Conditions of Puppy Reservation" below). 

Please fill out the electronic application below to indicate your preferences. Upon acceptance of your application, a $500 application fee will be required, which is refundable under some conditions/or may be applied to a future litter.  
Companion Puppy Cost: 

Beginning in August 2020, all our puppies are $3,200.00 (plus 9.00% sales tax for California residents).  We accept personal checks, cash, and Paypal payments for reservation fees.  The balance of the payment will be due when the puppy is 6 weeks of age.   

We prefer NOT to ship young puppies, but can usually offer hand-delivery of your pup to you at cost of travel, plus vet's medical certificate and airline-approved crate.

We are happy to answer your questions before and after you have purchased one of our puppies for as long as you own him or her.  We look forward to hearing from you about your new family member’s progress and always welcome photos.  This information about your puppy as he matures is invaluable to us in developing our breeding program going forward.  

Conditions of Puppy Reservation:

We strive to meet our Puppy Families' desires in terms of their ideal puppy, although we believe that temperament and personality should be the primary factors in permanent home placement.  We screen all of our puppies over a period of many weeks to determine suitability in different home situations, and, as we want our Puppy Families to be happy with the puppy they are adopting, we will work with you personally on selection.

Besides temperament--and we do focus on consistency in temperament in our program--gendersize, and color are other selection factors.  Ultimate adult size can only be estimated by the size of the parent dogs, but may not be apparent until much later, and, with hybrid dogs, size within a litter can vary greatly and can not be guaranteed with better than "ballpark" accuracy.  Puppies are almost always born much darker than they will end up as adults. "Chocolate" pups for example are likely to end up as "Cafe"  or  "Parchment".  Caramel-cream pups are likely to end up "Cream". When the puppies are born, we will know color and gender availability and will contact families regarding the availability of their selection.  Flexibility on any/all of the three selection factors greatly improves the likelihood of there being a puppy for your family!  

​We require a $500 deposit which is completely refundable if there is no puppy born and available that has the one PRIMARY "Most Important trait"  of your desired gender or color traits on the original application. For example, if you will only accept a male, and none is born, (or if we are considering withholding it for our breeding program), we will refund your deposit in whole, or roll it over until the next litter, if you desire. If a family declines a puppy that does have their "primary" desired trait (gender, estimated size, or color) or declines a puppy within 3 weeks of the go-home date, the deposit will be transferable to the next litter. If there is no other litter being whelped within the subsequent 90 days, the deposit will be refunded in full. All this being said, we are happy to work with you to satisfy your ideals! 

The application below will help us select the best puppy for your home. So that we can best assess your desires, we welcome your phone call...after you submit the application. Be sure to include your  telephone numbers in your application.  If you have not heard from us in 72 hours, please email or please state clearly if you are unwilling to accept a puppy of a different gender and color than you indicate on your application. PLEASE DO NOT  EMAIL WITHOUT HAVING SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION. Thank you for understanding that demand is so high that we only have time to work personally with committed persons. 

I will do a final assessment on temperament and conformation at 7 1/2 to 8 weeks, which is the age at which both of these factors are most effectively evaluated.  If there is a puppy that I choose for the breeding program, that is when I will decide.  At that point, I will allocate the remaining puppies to families on the waiting list based on: 1. temperament and  2. the other characteristics (gender, size, color).  In the case of multiple comparable puppies, the families who have submitted their deposits first will be asked to select their first choice of the litter. Payment in full is required by check if one week before pickup date or in cash or cashier's check when puppy is picked up. The puppies will be vaccinated, microchipped, given a medical examination, and then made available to their new owners between 8-9 weeks of age.  If the family is unavailable to take possession of their puppy immediately, I will board him or her if I am available for a fee. 

We want you to follow the development of your puppy's litter each week as they grow and learn, and always post regular updates and photos on the "Puppy Photo Blog"  and in the Google albums for  each litter after they are born.   We have a planned playdate at 5-6 weeks of age so that you can visit all of the puppies and usually mom too,  depending on the mom's feelings.

And now get ready for an amazing addition to your family...!

We guarantee that your new puppy will be healthy at the time you receive him or her. Your
puppy will have received his or her first vaccinations and de-worming treatments as
appropriate for his or her age. In addition, the puppy will have undergone a physical examination shortly before we release him or her to you. We will include the puppy’s examination results along with his or her complete medical records. (If we are
flying your puppy to you via air cargo, the puppy will have received another medical
examination shortly before being shipped.) You will need to make an appointment for your
puppy to be examined by your licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of his or her arrival,
according to the terms of our warranty.

Dogs that we breed go through an extensive panel of tests before we will clear them to be
bred. We provide a two-year health warranty on genetic disease that significantly impairs the
life of the dog (as determined by two veterinarians). Should a serious genetic issue be
discovered within the first two years, we will pay the vet expenses for treating that issue up
to the purchase price of your puppy or will replace your dog with another puppy.

While we expect our puppies to remain healthy and to live long lives, canine health is
dependent on environmental factors such as a healthy diet, exercise, safe living conditions,
and regular veterinary care for vaccinations and other treatments. Love, attention, and
proper training are also critical to your dog’s well-being. We expect that you will provide
these critical components to your dog‘s long-term health.

While we do ask that you take your puppy to your veterinarian within the first 3 days after
receiving him or her, please let your puppy relax into his or her new home at a gentle pace.
Too many visitors, car trips, and other excitement can be overwhelming to a young pup and
could disrupt the careful socialization that has been conducted up until that time. Very
importantly, although your puppy will have received age-appropriate vaccinations when you
bring him home, please procede cautiously when you take your puppy out in public until he or she has completed the complete series of puppy shots (usually16 weeks of age). Young pups are at risk to the parvovirus from infected dog feces or vomit, which can stay dormant for years in the ground and is not killed by most common disinfectants. We recommend that you carry your puppy into the veterinarian’s office and hold him or her for the duration of your visits, due to the possibility of parvovirus or other diseases being tracked in by other animals.
