Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know which puppy I am getting?
When applying for a litter you can give us your gender and color preference. At 6 weeks of age we will have puppy visitations where you will be able to meet the puppies and give us your preferred collar collars. Once the puppies are 7 weeks of age they will receive a vet check as well as temperament test. We will assign a puppy to you based on the temperament test and what would suit you and your family best while taking into account preferences.
When do I get to meet my puppy and bring my puppy home?
At 6 weeks of age we set a day for families to come visit the puppies. If you have allergies and would like to see if one of our puppies would be compatible with you please email us and we can work something out. You must have your $500 non-refundable deposit in before visitations can happen. Puppies will be ready to go home at 8 weeks of age.
What and how do I feed my puppy?
On our favorites things page we highly recommend getting the Bixbi kibble along with either Steve's or Rawbble freeze dried food. When your puppy goes home they will be on 1/4 cup freeze dried and 1/2 - 3/4 kibbles with 1/4 cup warm water mixed in. We recommend this diet throughout the dogs life while increasing portion size as they grow. Be sure to match proteins. Hoofed animals with hoofed animals and winged animals with winged animals. Some doodles are sensitive to white fish so be careful when feeding it.
What shots does my puppy get?
Before your puppy is ready to go home, they will receive 2 rounds of neopar, 2 rounds of nemex (dewormer), 2 rounds of safeguard (dewormer) and a 5-1 shot that covers parvo, distemper, parainfluenza, and two types of adenovirus (hepatitis). Your puppy will not need another shot until they are due for another 5-1 at 11 weeks. When it is time for puppies next round of shots have them done one at a time as doodles can be sensitive to more than one vaccine at a time.
What do I need to bring when taking my puppy home?
We recommend a crate for the car although it is optional. We also recommend bringing a spare towel or blanket as the puppies don't have too much experience in cars and may become carsick.
What does my puppy come home with?
Your puppy will go home with:
- ~7-10 days worth of food.
- A bag full of chewies and treats (sheep ears, beef trachea, Virbac CET Chews, and beef lung.)
- A copy of your contract, their temperament testing, vet report, a 72 hour vet check paper for your vet to sign, and other informational papers.
- A blanket and snuggle puppy rubbed on siblings and mother for scent to assist in transition home.
- A leash and collar.
What litters do you have planned?
You can find our planned litters on our puppies page. This page is based on our estimations of when they're supposed to go into heat, however this may be inaccurate as we cannot fully predict mother nature. The page will be updated when the dog has been bred.
My puppy has a improper bite, what should I do?
Our health guarantee doe not cover issues with bite. It is not uncommon for puppies to have a slight overbite when they are young. Many vets will recommend having surgery to pull teeth however we highly recommend against this. Majority of bites will correct themselves and adult teeth will come in with no problem. Providing your puppy with ball therapy can assist in correcting the bite.
How do I groom/bathe my puppy?
Once your puppy is done receiving their vaccinations we highly recommend scheduling their first grooming appointment with a groomer. After this we recommend having them groomed every 8 weeks. When bathing your puppy in between grooming visits we highly recommend using the shampoo linked on our favorite things and treating the bath more like a shower. You do not want your puppy sitting in soapy water rather you want to get them wet, lather them with the shampoo, then thoroughly rinse all soap out. Leaving soap in can cause their skin to dry out and be itchy. If you see them itching a lot after a bath give them another quick rinse to make sure all soap is out.
How do payments for my puppy work?
Before we can put you down on our master list or a litter, we require a $500 non-refundable deposit. When the puppies are born we will send out an email announcing the birth and ask for another payment of $1000. At 7 weeks after puppy allocation we ask for the final $1500. The total cost for the puppy is $3000. If you cannot pick the puppy up on the assigned go home day there is an additional $25 charge for every day held. This does NOT apply to extreme circumstances like dangerous weather conditions. We will take payments via Venmo, cash, or check. The deposit may be paid via PayPal however we prefer the other options provided.
