*Please note that we reserve the right to retain any puppies that we think have potential to become breeders
  for California Labradoodles. When the puppies reach the age of 6 - 12 months, we will evaluate if they have   developed the qualities we are looking to infuse in our breeding program.

*We make all our puppy allocations when the pups are at least 7 weeks old, and we can more accurately assess their temperaments.

*Please also note that at this time we are only breeding miniature and medium Australian Labradoodles.

*California Residents are required to pay 9.0% sales tax.

*All payments to be made in full before the puppy leaves breeder.

*Puppy's must be picked up within one week of allocation. After that we will charge a $45 per day boarding
  fee, $55 a day over the holidays, or your puppy will be reallocated to the next person on our waitlist.

*Puppy's may be picked up between the hours of 11 am and 2 pm weekdays only.

*Shipping cost will generally be $365 and includes shipping, insurance, transportation to the airport, crate, health certificate and vet examination certifying the puppy is safe to travel. We prefer to send puppies non-stop only for the safety of the pup. If connecting flights must be scheduled, there will likely be an additional fee to engage a premium service to hand carry the puppy between flights, or enable us to book your pup with shorter connection times. Also note that some cities are more expensive to get to than others, and the price of shipping will be adjusted accordingly.
