I've fell in love with Doodles ever since I saw a special on Tv. Ever since I've always wanted one. Well I've been doing some searching and I think I have found the one I want. Can anyone tell me if the price and everything fits the pup?

$2600 Choc wool multi-gen labradoodle pup 9 weeks.
Pup comes with the following :
- Pedigrees
- health guarantee 2 yrs (hereditary diseases that effect the quality of life)
- microchip and ID number
- veterinary cert of early spay or neuter
- Registration & transfer papers for LAA
- socialization
- beginning crate and potty training
- on going support for life of pup

Its mom is CoCo a A3 choc wool
Its dad is Titian a AFL6 red spiral fleece
parents on both mom and dad are from Tegan Manor Park.

I just want to make sure Im getting a ok deal. The puppies are beautiful and I really like the breeder. thanks christina

Hi Christina, congratulations on doing your homework before you buy! I think that this sounds perfect! But...I caution you to also ask a LOT of questions...you will want to see that the parents were tested and SEE the results (not take their word for it) and you will want to see the pedigree to look for inbreeding.
Also ask about the health warranty...often it is vague (out of necessity) and so you want to pin it down...what do they consider to be a serious genetic disease? Life threatening? Costly? Painful?
Also check references... past customers, their vet, etc.
It does sound like a reasonable price ($100 more than the going rate for multigens, but then there may be a reason for that...)
Be sure to let us know when you get your baby! I'd love to see a picture...chocolate doods are among my favorites!

It is a good indication that the breeder is doing things correctly. Still, you want to not rely on it completely because they suggest that we do certain things, but don't do anything to actually enforce the rules.
LAA is a good organization and usually member breeders are reputable...just keep doing that homework! :wink:

Sounds like you have made you decision but I wanted to let you know that the price is $100 more then we paid for our multigen. He is wonderful and worth every penny! You are going to love your pup. What color? When do you get him/her? I can't wait to see pictures!

Hi, what an interesting post! Good for you for covering your bases. Like the others, $2500 was the price I've seen for Aus. multigen doodles. Jac has given you REAALLY REALLY good advice about getting copies of the pedigrees AND copies of the health testing results. Both of those are easy enough for breeders to photocopy.

Also, is anyone else thinking that asking about the warranty in the event of a diagnosis of cancer before the puppy is 2yrs old? I am just sick about Guinness and how he's suffering. I am thinking I should specifically add that to my warranty.

My lil baby will be a chocolate wool. Im not sure about alot of other peoples pricing. I live in Washington State. 3 breeders iv'e found (in washington) who breed multi-gens all had the following prices.
$2500 ----Black silver chalk cream
$ 2600 ---- Chocolate cafe
$ 2800----- Red gold
I have seen them a hundred cheaper also, in other states. But since the breeder I think I may go with is only 2 hours away, I figure I would just end up paying more for shipping if i got one elsewhere. I see shipping can be like $500. So I think in the long run paying $100 more than other breeders and only using a half tank of gas to pick him up still seems like a better deal. What do you think? Plus I know as soon as I have him in my arms I wouldnt care if he cost $5000. I know Seattle WA has a breeder that I think was cheaper, but last time I went to their site it said they were no longer breeding multi-gens. Only F1 and F1B's. I have allergies thats why I have not had a dog in the past. And reg poodles just never seemed to be a breed that fit us. So when I heard about the Doodles I was thrilled. I know that there are different oppoinions out there about Doodles and them being allergy friendly or not. So I figured If I just spent the extra cash for a multi and went with a wool coat (which I heard is the coat that is the least likely to shed) I would have a better chance. We do alot of camping and fishing trips, and I can't wait to have my big teddy bear to share the good times with. And until i found out about the Doodles I didnt think it would be possible for me.
