Our Dogs live with us, in our home or with a carefully selected guardian family. You may rest assured that you are receiving a puppy from a home based, loving family environment. Everyone of our Doodles are family members first.
While there are many choices when it comes to Doodles we hope you will see the commitment and responsibility we put into our program.
Even if you are not ready to add a new Family Member and just want to chat about our program or the ALD Breed in general, please feel free to contact us. We love to brag about our Doods!
"Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our life whole"

Professional Ethical Breeding
It all starts with Professional and Ethical Breeding for us. That includes:
Being Members in Good Standing with WALA (WorldWide Australian Labradoodle Association)
The confidence to offer a 3 Year Health Warranty
Rigorously tested dams and sires
A combination of AviDog and Puppy Culture Programs
A 3rd party, professional unbiased evaluation
Equally important to health is temperament. We follow a daily protocol from each puppies first day of life and continue until they are ready to go to their Forever Families.
Each of our puppies enjoy being treated as individuals, allowing their unique personality to flourish.
Socialization with their litter mates, other health protected dogs, adults, children and various other animal species (cats, horses, goats, pig, donkey).
An Introduction to various sights, sounds, textures and environments give them confidence and problem solving skills.
Your new puppy will have a complete daily evaluation and testing for 9 weeks.
We get to know your puppy and their core personality very well allowing us to match them to your needs. We will have open discussions regarding the best fit for you and the puppies. This is an extremely important, detailed process to ensure your expectations are met and that you have a Family Member for life! We encourage you to keep in mind that particular colors you may like or gender may seem important but, they don't matter if you are not happy with your puppy's personality or behavior.
What to Expect from Our Puppies
By the time you pick up your puppy you will be equipped with a wealth of knowledge and insight specific to your puppies core personality. Imagine if we could know this about people before we met them?
Your puppy will arrive with an Introduction to potty training, crate training, basic obedience commands (sit, leave it, come) and be desensitized to a collar/leash (they are too young to have mastered these behaviors, but you will have a running start).
All the common sounds and sights of a family household in action (television, vacuum cleaner, the roomba scooting around the floors, washing machine/dryer, radio, people coming and going, door bells, sudden and intentional loud noises and the list goes on).
Your puppy will have experienced numerous car rides, a trip to the Vet, grooming tools, a bath, blow dryer, the sound of an electric trimmer and scissors, nail clipping and anything else we think of along the way.
