Why choose a Labradoodle from a breeder registered with the Australian Labradoodle Association? All breeders that are registered with the ALA (Australian Labradoodle Association) offer a Health Guarantee. Of course occasionally things go wrong, whether it's with breeding animals or even human babies, but we do our very best to ensure we limit the possibility of problems by ensuring all breeding dogs are thoroughly health tested for a vast range of genetic problems. These tests include extensive DNA testing, as well as hip and elbow scoring. More details of the tests can be found on the Australian Labradoodle Association site. Here at Willow Lane, we are confident of the health of our puppies and we offer an extensive 3 year guarantee that covers a wide variety of health issues.
How are Willow Lane Puppies allocated? Once you have expressed interest in one of our puppies we will place you on our waiting list. When a litter of puppies has been born, and we know numbers and genders of puppies, we will confirm if we have a puppy for you in that litter. At this time a $500 deposit is required. This covers the cost of desexing, vaccinations and raising the puppies for the first 8 weeks. Once puppies reach 6 weeks of age, we start to get a good indication of the puppies characters and temperaments, this will enable us to decide which puppies (if any) we will place into our Guardian Program as breeding potential puppies. It is at this time we will inform you of your allocated puppy and you will have the option of visiting and meeting your new Furbaby,
What is the Guardian Program? The Guardian program allows us to retain breeding quality puppies within our breeding program. It benefits all parties concerned in the following ways; The dogs benefit because they are placed in loving forever homes at around 8 of age and live as loved family members all their lives with you, just returning to Willow Lane to have their litters (a maximum of 3). The Guardian benefits because they receive the very best puppy in the litter at less than normal pet price.. Willow Lane benefits as we get to continue breeding from the best of the best, continually striving to improve the breed and breed the very best Labradoodles possible knowing that all dogs have loving forever homes which is our main concern. If you live within 2 hours drive of Warrnambool Vic, feel free to contact us if you are interested in more information about the program.
