Your Australian Labradoodle can live up to 15 years. Please do your research before deciding on any breeder.
At a minimum, you should ask about the health testing that has been done on their breeding dogs, including the type of test, the date, and the results. There should be a health guarantee of at least two (2) years protecting against life-threatening, genetic defects. Their home or kennel should be clean and the dogs should look healthy and happy. The breeder should be willing and able to support you for the lifetime of your dog, including being available to answer questions, and help you re-home them if that ever becomes necessary.
Is the breeder willing and able to answer all of your questions? You should seek out a breeder who prioritizes temperament instead of breeding primarily for appearance. You should be prepared to be asked questions too. They are asking because they are concerned about the welfare of the dogs and not just in making a sale.
There are two important mistakes to avoid. The first is online puppy brokers. Puppies from multiple breeders are displayed, but no specific kennel or individual breeder names are identified. These can be online puppy mills. The broker does not see the puppy or the breeder. It is merely a way to market and sell a large number of puppies.
The second mistake is choosing a Labradoodle puppy based on price. This puppy will be your companion for many years to come. You want him or her to come from healthy, tested parents. You want the parents to be matched so that they produce sound, healthy puppies with wonderful temperament.
Dates for planned litters are approximate. They are estimates based on their prior history.
They could cycle sooner or later than predicted and Mother Nature is in charge.
Labradoodle Lane reserves the right to use a different stud than planned. There are many reasons and circumstances which may require this.
When a substitution is made, Labradoodle Lane will make every effort to use a stud of similar size and temperament
and who will produce similar colors whenever possible.
Labradoodle Lane has the right to refuse to sell a puppy to anyone for any reason. If we choose not to sell you a puppy, your deposit will be refunded.
