A labor of love...
Puppies and moms, need alot of love, care and understanding in the early weeks of life. We give them every ounce we can while they are here with us. Whether its 10am playtime to 3AM feedings. We are right there ready to offer them what they are needing in the moment. Empowering them thru obstacles and not enabling them in their fears.
*As they were originally bred to be, some of our puppers are going on to become full certified therapy & medical alert dogs. Which is just awesome to see! :)
Reserving a puppy...
When you reserve or purchase one of our puppies you will receive a two year written guarantee against genetic issues that would affect the quality of your pet's life. We are here to help you for as long as you need us!
We have chosen to breed predominantly small and medium size Authentic Australian Labradoodles. (Meaning, our lines come from Australia)
Our dogs are raised in our home as members of the family, to help develop their personalities in anticipation of becoming a valued and well balanced pet for the family or companion for the single.
How are the pups raised?...
We begin early nuerological stimulation & early scent introduction with the pups as early as day 3. We introduce our puppies to many sights, sounds and experiences as we are able with age appropriate curriculumn. Weeks 2.5 - 4 we introduce brief loud noise , new daily items in the whelping box, tactile items under foot, and a place to go potty. Imprinting the pups with a strong sense that there is a "spot for that". Thus laying the groundwork for potty training.
Weeks 4&5 we begin daily fun obstacle work with the puppies. Helping them thru mazes, up, over & under objects of many shapes, sizes, and tactile surfaces. Continuing with their daily dose of different sounds along the way. They also learn there is a "nap" time with some much needed sleep to help them absorb all that they have learned. Weeks 6, 7 & 8 We challenge the pups a little more, only stepping in to cheer them on as needed. But by this age, they got it and are ready to take on what ever we bring em'! From free play areas in and around our home and gardens, to obstacle courses with no turning back.
All this, along with a good dose of common sense training in general. Imprinting a total recall, and behaviours of sit and manding. Laying the ground work for a pup eager and willing to train and learn.
The puppies at 9 weeks are ready to learn the next steps in puppy socialization and family life with you! We now send each of our puppies home with the opportunity to sign up with the Dunbar Training Academy to be a "Top Dog" member. To continue with their training from the moment they arrive home with you.
Your new puppy will be;
Vet checked with health certificate & have age appropriate shots & have be on a dewormer protocol. They will be microchipped by the vet and come home with a 30 day Trial Pet Insurance with Trupanion, A 2yr Genetic Health Guarantee, Puppy Go Home Kit (Full tote of food, blankie, harness, collar, leash, grooming comb, toys, treats, seasonal items they may need etc - Value $100.), & finally, a Lifetime of Support from us as well as a continued connection in our private Littermates FB group with other pawrents of our puppies.
The cost of care?...
We realize this puppy represents a significant investment by the pet owner. The veterinary care and procedures alone, represents a $980. value which is included in the price of $2850. The general care, feeding, and housing of the litters and their mama's reflects the rest. It is a labour of love for us but there are costs in owning any dog, or pet for that matter. So it only stands to reason that it costs to raise happy, healthy, well rounded puppies.
*Price does not include transportation costs, please contact us for rates if that would apply.
The Authentic ALD, a pure breed in development...
The gene pool for authentic Australian Labradoodles is very limited at present, and it is only through careful breeding that the exceptional qualities of the true Australian Labradoodle will be maintained and improved upon and continue on its route as a pure breed in developement. The ALCA has put forth the documentation required to acheive this dream of seeing our ALD's recognized as such with the AKC. (American Kennel Club) The data registry base is currently going through the general audit as is done with any new breed of canine. It is exciting to see our ALD's get closer to this recognition and one day be a known "Breed".
Once again, we do not breed F1 or F2 American Labradoodles as we feel the size, coat, and non allergenic traits are not consistent in these early breedings. Though we loved our F1 Labradoodles, they were NOT a part of our breeding program. There are some "clubs" which do allow such infusions into their lines. We do not advocate such infusions with our lines. If you are looking for a true ALD, please do your research on what makes an Australian Labradoodle, an Australian Labradoodle.
