Discounts available for Military, Therapy dogs and returning customers
How is the cost of a puppy determined? Australian Labradoodles have been bred specifically for health and temperament. Most breeding males and females cost around $13,000 due to demand of quality breeding stock and the extensive testing that breeding dogs undergo to verify that they are top quality for reproduction. Reputable breeders will be able to provide you with all the testing information of their breeding males and females. At Patriot's Day Doodles, we test through Paw Prints Genetics and do the Essential and Supplemental Panels which test for covers 15 different diseases. We also do OFA eye exams. OFA Hips, Elbows, Patellas and OFA Cardiac exam. At two years old the males and females take a thyroid test.
Why test so much? Vets are very expensive and so we breed dogs who should be healthy the length of their life, if you provide correct nutrition, exercise and attention. We have invested a great deal of our time, money and care to have healthy Australian Labradoodle parents to give you the healthiest family companion possible! It's an amazing deal over the long haul.
We have a no shelter policy and puppies come with a contract in which the new owners agree to return the dog to us if there arises a need to rehome. We will either take the dog back or help that individual find a new home depending on location.
Puppies can go home between 8-10 weeks of age under a spay and neuter contract. Puppies will need to be neutered before 6 months of age. If an accidental pregnancies occurs or the puppy is not spayed or neutered by 6 months then the puppy will be considered a breeding dog and the remaining balance of $7000 will be due. Also any breeches of breeding contracts resulting in penalties to Patriot's Day Doodles will be transferred to the unspayed puppy's owner. Those fines can be as much as $15-20 thousand dollars. Needless to say, we take spay and neuter seriously!
