Our puppies cost $3,000. After submitting an application, you can expect to receive an email from us regarding the status of your application within 72 hours. We accept 5-6 reservations for each planned litter. Once your application has been accepted for an agreed-upon, planned litter, you will be asked to read and sign our contract and send your non-refundable deposit of $500 by cash, check or through the GoodDog.com payment platform. This deposit can be transferred to another litter if the litter is smaller than expected or your circumstances change and you need to delay your purchase. The balance of $2,500 is due when your litter is four weeks old. If our reservations are full, we will place your application on our waiting list. No deposit is required to be placed on the waiting list. You can expect to hear from us by phone and with regular email updates once your litter is born. Us getting to know you, and you getting to know your litter will help with puppy selection. In addition, each puppy’s temperament will be evaluated after 7 weeks old to help determine which is the right choice for your household. With every litter, we may choose to reserve the pick-of-the-litter to add to our breeding program. Check out how to Become a Guardian for one of our breeding dogs!
Health Guarantee & Early Training
Our puppies are guaranteed to be healthy when they leave our home and are sold with a two-year health guarantee. Your puppy will have all vaccinations and deworming recommended by our veterinarian, and you will receive these records. We expect you to have an appointment at your veterinarian for a full examination within 72 hours of bringing your puppy home. You should make this appointment as soon as you know the approximate date you will be picking up your puppy. Do not wait until your puppy is home since many vets need 2-3 weeks notice to get you on their schedule.
We utilize the Puppy Culture program for raising healthy, well-adjusted, confident puppies. You can expect your puppy to go home with an introduction to a multitude of sensory experiences including household noises, car rides, things with wheels, and giggling grandchildren. They will also be introduced to leash walking, sleeping alone in a crate, sitting for attention, and going outside to potty. Your puppy will go home between 8 and 9 weeks of age and you can expect to be very busy managing your new puppy! We strongly encourage the use of crate-training, tether leashes and puppy playpens in the home. These management tools can greatly reduce destructive chewing and speed up house training. All puppies have ‘accidents’ and all puppies have a strong urge to chew and having realistic expectations is important. We recommend that you find a trainer who uses positive reinforcement to continue the good start your puppy has received from us.
Lifetime education & support
We expect you to call or email us with any questions or concerns you have about your puppy, no matter how incidental or significant. We are here for the life of your puppy, and we mean it! When you purchase a puppy from Tall Timbers, you become a part of our Labradoodle family, a relationship designed to promote the lifelong wellbeing of your dog.
Our puppies can live about 15 years on average, but some dogs have been known to live well into their 20’s. You can expect to be responsible for your new puppy for the entire length of his or her life. You can rely on Tall Timbers to be available for support throughout your dog’s life. Your contract will require that you contact us if your dog needs a new home. We will assist with the process as needed and will require that the dog be returned to us if an appropriate home cannot be found.
Your new pet comes with a 24 month health guarantee in your purchase agreement. This agreement clearly outlines our commitment to your pet to ensure the standards of the breed are kept at a quality level. It also states your responsibilities to keeping your new dog healthy and cared for.
