Frequently Asked Questions
Puppies are $3,000 ($3,250 for AKC S.T.A.R. trained puppies). This includes a two-year health guarantee against congenital health problems, spaying or neutering, deworming every two weeks, the first round of core vaccines administered by a licensed veterinarian during a thorough physical examination, and microchip.
Puppies are usually able to go home at eight weeks. These puppies are eleven weeks and have already begun training.
No. In the interests of breed integrity and reducing the risk of uterine infections and breast tumors in females, and testicular cancer and prostate problems in males, each puppy is spayed or neutered before going home.

We encourage you to feed your puppy a premium dog food designed for puppies. Here we feed dry dog food in the morning, because it is somewhat laxative and we want them to be able to make it through the night. At lunch, we give them a premium canned grain free meal. At dinner, we give them homemade food containing a lot of beef and eggs, with some fish and dog vitamins added.
You can find out more about this breed at the Australian Labradoodles the Association of America website.
