Finding the right Australian Labradoodle breeder can seem like a daunting task, especially if you are purchasing a dog over the Internet. Here are a few guidelines you can follow to help make the process a little easier.

Intent

What are the breeder’s intentions? A reputable breeder should have a worthy purpose. What drew them to a particular breed? What are their goals with the breed?

Knowledge

How well do they know the breed? A reputable breeder is educated about the breed; including any genetic issues and recommended health testing. Don’t be afraid to ask for copies of the dog’s pedigree
and any health tests performed.

Contracts

Do they have a written contract /health warranty? A written contract is not only to protect the breeder but the consumer as well. It should include a minimum of a two-year health guarantee, protecting against any life-threatening genetic diseases such as hip or elbow dysplasia.

Integrity

Does the breeder answer all questions confidently and accurately? Are they willing to let you see where the puppies are raised? Do the animals appear healthy and happy? How much does the breeder know about each of his dogs? How well-socialized are his dogs? Are they kennel raised? Are they raised inside the home? Reputable Australian Labradoodle breeders will not allow customers around young non-vaccinated puppies because of their risk of becoming sick.

Screening

A responsible breeder will ask several questions about you and your family. Some questions you might be asked are: Have you ever owned a dog before? Why do you want a dog? How much time can you spend with the dog? Is your yard fenced? You should feel assured that the breeder is someone who is genuinely
concerned for the puppy’s well-being.

Lifetime Support

What kind of support does the breeder offer? A reputable breeder should have a genuine interest in how the puppy is doing in its new home. They should be a helpful resource throughout the pet’s lifetime.

Hygiene

A breeder’s home or kennel should be clean and tidy. A conscientious breeder should require hand-washing and shoe removal before handling puppies. As previously mentioned, reputable Australian Labradoodle breeders will not allow visitors around non-vaccinated puppies. Diseases are easily carried on clothing and shoes, putting the puppies at risk.
You may be asked to delay your visit until puppies are vaccinated.

Records

What kind of records does the breeder keep? A responsible breeder will keep extensive and accurate records of his or her breeding dogs and puppies, including all vet visits, vaccinations, health screenings, litter records, and pedigree information.

References

Ask for references. A responsible breeder should give you references that confirm their credibility as a breeder. Ask for a professional reference like their veterinarian. The best way to find out about your breeder is to see unbiased views on forums and social media sites like Facebook. That is a great place for referrals. Find out if they belong to any accredited organizations that track the health and pedigree of their animals?
