Great Glen Doodle's Puppy Adoption Process
If you would like to adopt a Great Glen Australian Doodle Puppy please complete our enquiry form. We do ask a few questions, but when you join the waiting list for an upcoming litter, this information enables us to best match a puppy to your needs.
Our breeding program is focused on careful selection of genetic health, strength and temperaments with a focus on fun loving, happy, confident, extremely clever and intuitive companions who are easy to train.
We screen eyes and grade hips and elbows of every breeding dog in our program as well as full DNA screening. Hip and Elbow screening must meet the minimum requirements set out by WALA. As responsible breeders we strive to breed healthy happy dogs, and although not all health issues can be screened for the results of our health screening help us make informed decisions on breeding pairs to ensure our puppies are as healthy as we can make them.
Our litters are lovingly and carefully raised in our home by our family, so our puppies are ready for your family. Our goal is to breed healthy, happy, intelligent, Australian Labradoodles with low to non-shedding coats in fleece or wool. We strive to find puppy families that will continue the love and care we have started. We expect our new families to train our pups to walk off lead, have good recall and be well socialised with other dogs. This way our pups can enjoy life to the full.
Our Labradoodle Puppy price is the same regardless of gender, colour or size.
All Great Glen Doodle puppies receive a health check from our vets at 6 weeks and potential owners shall be notified of any issues found; they have been wormed at 2,4,6 and 8 weeks; they have been micro-chipped; they will also be registered with WALA as pets ; they will have begun their socialisation and toilet training journey; and will come with a 2 year health guarantee for inheritable conditions that are life inhibiting. Our support is ongoing and we are happy to assist where possible.
All our puppies are sold as pets, and with a spay and neuter agreement as part of our purchase contract. We require proof of neutering by the puppies first birthday.
When you pick up your puppy you will receive a WALA certificate of registration, 4 weeks puppy pet plan insurance, detailed notes for your puppy on feeding, health, exercise, training and grooming tips and a lifetime of support from Great Glen Doodles., a small amount of food for puppy to be going along with, a few goodies, and the most adorable puppy to give you a lifetime of love.
Once we have received your questionnaire we will make time and contact you. Upon your application being processed you will go on our wait list until a suitable puppy arrives.
We request a £400 deposit which is non-refundable unless we cannot supply you with a puppy within 18 months of payment. Deposit payment will be deducted from the over all cost of a pup prior to collection of your puppy at 8 weeks of age.
When the time arrives, we will keep you updated with confirmed pregnancy information, and the arrival of the litter. If circumstances change, we ask that you notify us as soon as possible, before the puppies are 5 weeks and we can move you onto a another waiting list. This allows us time to allocate a new family to this pup. *We reserve the right to refund a deposit, should we believe you are not a good match for one of our puppies at any time before the exchange of contract at 8 weeks.
We will keep you updated with photos and/or videos each week of the puppies.
Allocations of puppies to families often do not occur until the pups have had their health check at 6 weeks of age. This is an ideal age to match/choose puppies with families due to the social and physical development of the litter and to possibly choose a breeding quality puppy to be retained for our program. This can sometimes depend on where you are placed on the waiting list, we will help you choose a puppy suitable to your family, just like us they all have different characters. At this time you can visit if you live nearby to meet and cuddle your new family member. Visits to your puppy can only be arranged from around 5/6 weeks as the health and well being of the mum and puppies is our priority.
If you've spent time reading our website, researching the breed, reading our purchase process, and have decided the Australian labradoodle is the breed of dog for you, and also feel your in a position to be placed on our waiting list please get in touch.
All our puppies are reserved in advance, and only on occasion if we have a litter that is larger than expected will we have puppies available in the immediate future.
If your still researching and deciding on a breeder feel free to reach out and contact us if you have any further questions.
