Goldendoodle and Retrievers on the way! Take-home will be 1/22. Reserving puppies now
Typically 6 months to a year; we have running waiting lists. However since we limit our wait lists to 6 per female dog, there are sometimes more openings randomly throughout the year after each litter is born. We will get back to you within a couple of days of receiving your Puppy Questionnaire to let you know what availability we may have.
*if you are #6 on a waiting list and the mama dog only has 5 puppies (for example), you will automatically get moved to the next litter (Golden Retriever or Goldendoodle) unless you no longer want to wait for a puppy. In the same way, if there are not enough males/females for you to get your preference, you may either change to the other sex or be moved to the next litter. You will be prioritized should this be the case.
*the next year’s waiting lists are started in December. If you’d like to be on this list, please check back in early December to find out when I’ll announce our waiting list for the next year is officially open.
I personally benefited from How To Raise A Puppy You Can Live With by Clarice Rutherford and The Art Of Raising A Puppy by the Monks of New Skete. There are many other good books out there depending on what area you’re wanting to study so it may be worth checking out what your library has to offer and then narrowing down what types of books you want to order.
We keep our dogs on appropriate flea medication (NexGard by RX after 6 months old and not when pregnant) and feed as healthy of food as we possibly can to help their overall health. This includes adding salmon oil to their food for the added benefits to their skin and coats. They do not exhibit signs of allergies but that doesn’t guarantee all puppies will fare as well. Environmental factors and diet come into play and possible genetic factors that cannot yet be tested for. Please get advice from your veterinarian for recommendations on keeping your puppy‘s coat and skin healthy.
*we do not generally have concerns from new puppy families regarding allergies but the question has come up.
*we also recommend NuVet vitamins and the link for their website is on our Nutrition page.
No, we do not and unfortunately we don‘t have any recommendations for breeders of mini doodles.
Since both Golden Retrievers and Goldendoodles are considered large breed dogs and going by the weights of our dogs, you can expect a female to weigh between 55-65 pounds and a male to weigh between 60-70 pounds by the time they reach their adult weight at 2 years.
No, we do not. I recommend it as a quality kibble but leave the decision up to you on what you feed your puppy. I suggest looking into the topic of feeding puppies from different perspectives. (Encouraging you to consider raw or home cooked meals as a possibility for your puppy or perhaps when he/she reaches adulthood if you’re not sure about it now.)
Yes, all puppies are dewormed at 2 week intervals and given appropriate vaccines while with us. We will inform you through the weekly updates (around week 5 or 6) when puppy will need his/her next vaccination. You will get the health record in puppy’s take home bag.
