Our Commitment to You
Labradoodle Breeder Ethics & Policy
Only the absolute best – it’s our promise and our policy
It is our policy to only breed Australian Labradoodles that are vet-approved, healthy, and have great temperaments. We only breed dogs that have come from top quality bloodlines, originating years ago with AKC Poodles and Labradors.
Our breeding dogs must have both hip and eye certification (hips – OFA Good or Excellent and/or PennHip and “normal” eye diagnosis by a certified ophthalmologist), and be cleared of cardiac and VWD. We do not breed until all test results are complete and verifiable. Occasionally we will breed Fair hips, but take careful precaution to use a sire with Good or Excellent hips with a precise consideration to pedigrees and genetic history.
Please feel free to contact our main vet offices at Tumalo Animal Hospital in Bend, Oregon, or Eastgate Veterinary Clinic in Corvallis to verify our commitment to breeding healthy dogs. With vet offices extremely busy with animal care, we encourage email communication to those locations if you are interested in a recommendation.
In addition, we will not breed more puppies than we can handle in order to give each puppy special care and attention. We go well beyond the norm of breeder care and raise our puppies in a loving, clean environment, with lots of affection every day and special attention to socialization.
We make sure all of our Australian Labradoodles are cared for in a kind and loving manner. They always have fresh water, warmth (or shade), bones to chew on, are kept parasite-free, and are fed quality dog food. We believe dogs should be trained in obedience, so they will be a blessing, not only to us but to others they meet and spend time with.
We will be honest with you and are committed to helping you enjoy your puppy. Should you be unable to keep your Australian Labradoodle for some unforeseen reason, we will do our best to assist you in finding him or her another good home.
When you receive your Australian Labradoodle puppy you are receiving a commitment from us that you are receiving not just any puppy, but one of the best. What you receive as part of the payment can be found here.
Payment in full must be received before puppies leave our home. Puppy prices are $3,250 for an Australian Labradoodle puppy.
We will be asking several questions about your home and lifestyle during the application process. We would like to know that you are prepared to care for your puppy and that you are ready to devote the necessary time to training your Labradoodle so that he or she is a blessing to you and your family. We do our best to place all of our puppies in a loving home that will be good for the dog and the owner over the entire life of the dog. Bringing a new pet into your family is a serious commitment.
When the puppies reach 7 weeks of age, we will do our final temperament testing and then matching the puppies to their new families, according to the requests you have made on your application and the temperament we feel is best for your family.
We will fulfill as many of your requests as possible, as we would like everyone to be happy with their puppy. We continue to work with every family throughout the first 7-weeks of the puppy’s life to gain as much information as possible as we make the puppy selection that will be coming into their home.
We will email you with a photo of your puppy once the matching is done and we will be requesting final payment at that time via ACH. If you’d like to pay with a personal check please communicate this prior as we need time to process the check prior to puppy pick up. Cash or cashier’s check are accepted on the day of pick up.
We will be taking all of our Australian Labradoodle puppies to our Veterinarian for exams at 7 weeks of age prior to matching.
All puppies are being sold as “pet” puppies unless otherwise arranged for a professional & approved breeder. We will sell the puppy to you on a spay/neuter contract that is legal and binding.
We guarantee – in writing – that your puppy will be healthy when you receive him or her. If health problems develop, are determined to be of a serious nature, and are considered hereditary by at least two veterinarians, you and your investment are covered under our health guarantee.

We want you to be confident that your puppy is healthy so we require that you have your new puppy examined by your own veterinarian within 72 hours after you receive him or her.
We reserve the right to choose and retain puppies from our litters that will be used for the future of our breeding program and/or traded with other Breeders in our efforts to continue producing the best possible breeding dogs. With this practice in mind, we will reserve a spot in every litter for these choices. We do not always keep back a breeding prospect from every litter, but we do evaluate every litter for this purpose.
We keep thorough and accurate records on all our dogs and make them available to you since they may help in your decision-making process of choosing the litter you’d like to get a puppy from.
We try to keep track of the puppies we send off to families and would love to hear from you and get stories as your puppy adjusts and grows in your home. We welcome every photo and update you’d like to email or mail to us for our website and social media.
We are available to help you in any way we can with your decision in purchasing a puppy. Once you own one of our dogs, we will continue to be available as a resource, should you have any questions.
