The Adoption Process








1. Puppies are Born


When you pay the deposit, we will place your family's name on our waiting list. Once the puppies are born, you will receive a “Litter Announcement” email. We will post pictures/videos and updates on our website at regular intervals. 


2. Choosing Your Puppy


Our hypoallergenic Australian Labradoodle puppies are allocated at 8 weeks of age after the temperament testing is completed. All allocations are done based on temperament and personality testing that cannot be conducted accurately until the puppies are 7 weeks old. This approach ensures that there is “no last puppy chosen” issue and that the puppies are placed in homes that best match their temperament, desired personal characteristics, and your lifestyle.


3. Your Puppy Progress Updates


Once we have matched your family’s requirements to a specific Australian Doodle puppy, we will send you information and pictures of the puppy. When the Australian Labradoodle puppies are 7 weeks old, we will hold an open house where you can bring your family to meet your new puppy.


4. Going Home


At 8-9 weeks old your Australian Doodle puppy will be ready to go home with you. Puppy take-home will be scheduled in the order the deposits were received.

Along with your new Labradoodle puppy, you will receive a bag of puppy goodies, sample of the puppy food your puppy has been receiving, a special gift from us, individual grooming instruction, and puppy care instructions.

The contract has to be signed in person at the time your puppy is picked up.

**The balance for your puppy must clear at least a week before the puppy is picked up.** 


5. Boarding Services


Please let us know if you require additional boarding or basic puppy training. We offer these services for additional fee . Please contact us for details and pricing. 


6. Transportation and Shipping


We prefer that you pick up your puppy in person however, we understand that this may not be an option for you. Therefore, we offer other transport options for your convenience: 


  • We can drive your puppy and meet you half way (4-6 hrs one way). *Fees may apply*

  • We can fly your puppy on our lap (NOT CARGO) via commercial airline to your location (you will be responsible for a round-trip airfare for the person escorting your puppy and the in-cabin pet fee).

  • We can use direct air shipping, which ranges from around $400.00 and up depending on the location, availability, and date reservations are made (shipping charges is due before we ship your puppy to you and include air shipping crate, blanket, health certificate, USDA documents, destination charges, and delivery to airport, etc.)
