We are located among the beautiful farmland of Oregon (45 minutes SW of Portland) with room to run and play on our forested 22 acres. We "family raise" our dogs and puppies, specializing in breeding healthy labradoodles with a mellow temperament for service dogs, therapy dogs, and family pets. We feed our dogs only high-quality dog food. Health is our utmost concern, and we strive to feed as high quality and natural as possible (for mom and puppies). Puppies are raised with daily love, interaction, handling, and LOTS of hugs by both children and adults! They will be familiar with the regular noises around the house and yard (i.e. children playing, vacuum, phone ringing, lawn mowing, etc.). Starting at 4 weeks of age, the pups are kept in a special inside pup house with an adjacent outdoor puppy yard (there is a doggie door connecting the indoor and outdoor sections). We start potty training long before they get to their new home. Training usually starts with using a doggy door at about 4 weeks of age. They quickly adjust and are pottying outside on their own by 5 weeks of age. The pups will not be fully house trained at 8 weeks, but this gives them a good start. All puppies will be microchipped, have first shots and wormed if needed. Puppies have valid ALAA paperwork (given to buyer after breeder receives proof of spay/neuter) Each puppy will go to its new home with a "stinky" stuffed toy (smells like mom) and more than a week’s worth of high-quality puppy food. We only breed for the enjoyment of the puppies and to further promote Labradoodles that are of excellent health and temperament. Our adult dogs are checked and certified; all have scored well on their hips, have passed OFA or CERF eye certification testing, and DNA genetic testing. It takes more than a Lab and a Poodle to create a Labradoodle with the temperament, health, and fantastic disposition that you would want in a service animal or family dog. Do not be taken by the “too good to be true” deals that seem to be out there. Dogs that are cheap are cheap for a reason. All Labradoodles are not created equal. It is important to do your homework and make sure that you are getting a quality dog. It takes a great deal of time and money to raise healthy, happy Labradoodles. We put an incredible amount of time, effort, and a lot of love into our puppies. It really is a lot of work raising them like this, but we love it! Our commitment to you is to work the hardest we can to provide you with the best possible puppy! We stand behind our puppies 100%!!!
