Pick of the Litter
Mama Bates Doodles reserves the right to the first pick of every litter to keep back 1 or 2 breeding quality puppies to further our program. We will make our final choice at 7 weeks of age.
All puppies are sold on a pet contract unless otherwise stated. In particular, you will need to have your puppy spayed or neutered by 9 months of age and send proof of completion to us.
While doodles tend to be hypoallergenic, sometimes that does not happen. If you are an allergy sufferer, you might consider a multigen doodle from coat tested parents or an F1b doodle (an F1 doodle bred with a poodle). Please let us know if you have someone in your home with allergies. We cannot guarantee any dog to be allergy free.
While we do our best to breed dogs in certain size ranges, we cannot guarantee the size your puppy will become. We will give you the sizes of our dams and studs, and while your puppy should range in these sizes, there is a possibility they may end of smaller or larger.
Our dogs undergo genetic testing and we will be happy to provide proof of results. We give a 2-year health guarantee against serious genetic defects. Upon request, we can provide a copy of our guarantee for review.
Your puppy is raised in our home. This means your puppy will be well socialized with men, women, college students, children, bathing, and veterinarians. Your puppy will be exposed to normal living in both the indoors (vacuuming, kids playing, toys) and outdoors (cars, activities such as children playing and mowing in the distance).
Your puppy will be comfortable wearing and sleeping with a collar (a big deal for a little puppy!).
Beginning Crate Training
Probably the most common reasons for stress in a new puppy home are extended housebreaking and chewing. We start you on the road to success with initial crate training. When they go home with you, they will be familiar with their crate, comfortable entering/exiting it, and should be able to spend the night without spoiling the crate (Your puppy will go home with its own small crate)
