I would GUESS that a doodle in the under $200 range comes from an owner of lab that bred her with a poodle. And that is a GUESS. Most professional breeders pay for costly hip testing, vet appointments, bording and welping areas. With all those expenses most labradoodles do cost more. Our Cody was on the low end at $600 and is an F1. Make sure you get the PennHip rating for both parents and ask if the puppy comes with a health guarantee of at least one year or two. Find out if they are breeding only Labradoodles or if they breed several kinds of dogs. You don't want to get a puppy from a mill-type facility and end up with a dog that has not been socialized or cared for properly. Find out when they give you the puppy and make sure it's not too early. The puppy should come with it's first set of shots and deworming. I think most doodles from good breeders also come microchipped but that's not necessarily a requirement. Some of the breeders on this site will be able to give you more information about what to look for. Good luck!
