Our adoption fee is $3,100 plus HST ($3500 total). The puppies go home already spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed, and with their first set of vaccines. We also include a puppy pack with grooming supplies, toys, personalized collar etc.
Our puppies are all ALAA registered, and we have a 3 yr. health guarantee for any genetic illnesses. This guarantee covers the vet fees (up to 1/2 the purchase price of the puppy) for any genetic or hereditary illness in the first 3 years of life OR a replacement puppy.
All of our testing is available to view on the mom's and dad's page of our website. All of our breeding males and females have been health tested for hips (OFA), elbows (OFA), eyes (OFA), cardiac (OFA), patellas (OFA), vWD, EIC, PRA, DM and a full DNA profile.
I have a 3 year guarantee on all of my puppies for any genetic illness. I stand behind all of my dogs and puppies and it is for this reason that I can offer a guarantee. I try to do the best that I can by my puppies, and that is why all of my adult dogs are thoroughly tested for common genetic problems before entering my breeding program. Not only do I want my dogs to live a long and happy life, but I also want the owners of my puppies to experience the same joy that I have in dog ownership. My dogs are my pets first and foremost.
We ship our puppies across Canada. WestJet is a fantastic company to deal with and they have always taken excellent care of our babies. Shipping is an additional cost of $450-650 depending.
Shipping to the United States is available but can be limited. Please email for specifics.
Growing up with Mom!
We are a small home breeder of labradoodles. This means that the puppies are raised solely in our house. They are accustomed to all aspects of the home life before going to their new families. From day #1 the puppies are handled and loved by people.
For the first few weeks, the moms are very doting on their puppies - rarely leaving the whelping area. The puppies are handled all of the time and the mom is not at all offended by this. We have 4 little boys that love our 'job'.
By 3 weeks of age, the puppies are getting more mobile. Their eyes are fully opened and they are just starting to walk around a little bit more. They are fed puppy food for the first time around 3 1/2 weeks. Very gradually the puppies are weaned from their mother to puppy food. By 5 1/2 - 6 weeks, the puppies are no longer with their mother. We start crate training and potty training around 4-5 weeks old, and continue until they are picked up by their new families. While they are no longer with their mother, the puppies are socialized with our other adult dogs. This is a crucial part of socialization!
At 6 1/2 weeks old the puppies are taken to the veterinarian for their 1st set of shots, and complete puppy check. We would also microchip the puppies at this age, if we have not already done that. The puppies are dewormed every 2 weeks while they are here (receiving 4 dewormings by 8 weeks old).
At 7 weeks old, we take our puppies in to be altered. The puppies are not even fazed by this minor surgery! We restrict their activity for the new few days while their incision heals some more, and by 8 weeks old they are ready to go to their new homes! By this time, our puppies are sleeping all night in a crate with no accidents! We are so proud of them!
We do not offer extended puppy training ourselves - our puppies go home at 8 weeks of age. However, we have partnered with an amazing imprint trainer who offers 4,8, or 12 week programs. I have personally used her program and now seen a number of our puppies go through her program and I am amazed at the results. Please contact Sam directly at Puppy Power Dog Training.
Additional places I recommend - Amanda @ Lake Country Canines, and Meeko's Puppy Playhouse. Both can be found on facebook.
I do not benefit from recommending her other than to see puppies getting a great start! I did a ton of research to find a trainer that aligned with my recommendations for training and working with Sam has exceeded my expectations. If you do live far away, I am happy to help with drop off.
Online Training - I am still an advocate for in class training and proper socialization, however, I also recommend BAXTER & BELLA! We are super excited to announce that we have officially partnered with BAXTER & Bella and their exclusive online puppy school. B&B provides pet parents a Lifetime MEMBERS ONLY Access to all of their training methods, materials and resources!
