Our Australian Labradoodles are $3500. Your puppy is reserved once we receive a $500 reservation fee and preference form.
Please click on the button below to complete your preferences. We ask that you complete this even if you just have questions. It helps us to make suggestions for upcoming litters, and to be better able to answer your questions.
Once we receive your application, we schedule a time to speak, so that you can ask questions and be comfortable with our program. You will also get a copy of our health guarantee and sales contract to review prior to proceeding. We schedule our calls M-TH evenings, in half hour sessions 5:30-7:00PM and on Saturdays from 10:00AM-12:00.
Once your application and preferences have been approved, you will be placed on our master deposit list with your preferences. A non-refundable reservation fee of $500 is due, and will be applied to the final payment of your pup. You can place your reservation deposit via check, or with our payment portal through Gooddog.com. Your puppy will not be reserved until we receive your reservation fee. Order on the reservation list is by receipt of deposit. We reserve the right to cancel the reservation and refund your deposit if we feel that we are not a good match.
All of our planned breedings and expected whelping dates will be on our website. When we have a confirmed pregnancy, we notify you by order of your placement on our master list. Since we only breed standard sized dogs, the choices of sex and color will be the only variable. You will have the choice to be placed on this list for a puppy, or to remain at the same place on your list to defer to the next litter born. You will have 48 hours to let us know your preference. We make a conservative number of spots on each litter available so that everyone that has a reservation will be assured a pup. Breeder always reserves the right to two pups from each litter. Many times, we have a couple of spots that we didn't pre-reserve and will post those on our website after they are born.
When a litter is born, those families on the reservation list will be notified. While we have many tools to be able to predict the number and color of pups, ultimately God and Mother Nature are in charge. We want you to love that pup as much as he or she will love you, so if you would like to wait for another litter, we put your name back in the order of your reservation to defer to the next litter. Breeder always reserves the right to retain two pups for Lucky Country Labradoodles.
As a new Lucky Dood family, we keep you updated with everything going on with your litter. You get updates and tips for preparing for your new family member on a weekly basis. At six weeks of age, the final payment is due. You will be invoiced in advance of this date and have several payment methods available to you. We also hold an open house for those local families that would like to come and see their pup in person. For out of town families, we will arrange a video call... the next best thing to being there!
Your Lucky Dood will come home to you between 8-9 weeks of age. When they are born, we will set the gotcha day window so that you can make plans to bring them home. We schedule pick up appointments at our home if you are driving, or will arrange to meet you at Raleigh Durham Airport if you fly to pick them up. If you are interested in a travel service to deliver your puppy, we would be happy to refer you to services that other breeders have had a good experience with. We make sure to give your pet the best start by providing a swag bag filled with tools and supplies to make the transition as smooth as possible for them, and for you!
All Lucky Country pups are born and raised in a home environment. What this means to you as a new puppy parent, is that by the time they are ready to come to your home they will be comfortable with sounds and activities that are everyday occurrences in a typical household... Hairdryers, vacuum cleaners, televisions, music, children, door bells, etc. Great care is taken to make sure that every experience during their time with us is positive. Crate and potty training as well as a beginning with leash manners training will have started. We also believe that puppies still learn from their elders, the adult dogs in the home. Mothers naturally will start to wean their puppies, and by around 6 weeks of age, they are not dependent on their mothers for nourishment at all. However, it is during this time that valuable discipline and interaction still goes on between the mother and the pup. We choose to keep mothers here for the entire 8-9 weeks that the pups are with us. We prefer to let the mother decide when her job is finished.
Puppies are placed at 8-9 weeks of age, and will come with the following:
1) Full age appropriate vaccines/ Following age guidelines set by the AVMA
2) Full examination from our veterinarian
3) Spay Neuter Contract through Spay Secure
5) A Snuggle Puppy and a Blanket/toy with litter mates scent
6) Thirty Day complimentary health insurance by Trupanion
7) Two year health guarantee for inherited disease that affects the quality of life of the dog.
8) Pedigree and papers to register pet with the Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association after after fulfilling obligations through Spay Secure.
