Planned Litters

I am often asked by existing owners of Northbound Dogs what my future plans are, or by homes who are planning ahead for their new family member.

As best as I can, I have attached my girls who will be mated, although timings may not be exact, and not every mating will result in a pregnancy.

Planned Litters for 2024

Availability on pairings

red australian labradoodle

Elsa and Shep

This is Elsa's retirement litter and it will be stunning with active, intelligent pups.  This is a repeat of last years litter.

 

This litter requires a guardian home.

​Due to Billy being a little hesitant in the boyfriend department, there 'could' be a last minute change to Silas.

 

This litter is fully reserved, however I do need a guardian home.

Ready for homes, tbc

Studs
Bodi

Bodi and tbc

 Due to Bodi not falling pregnant with Silas, I 'may' call on super stud Clark to assist!

 

If you like patterns, then Silas will work beautifully. For tuxedos or white marks then Clark is your boy!

Ideal owners

I only take on future owners who are committed to TRAINING, OFF LEAD EXERCISE and RAISING A DOG PROPERLY. 

All my puppies come with the following:

  • Worming at 2, 4, 6 & 8 weeks with Drontal

  • First vaccination at 7 weeks old (Canigen DHP), plus vet check

  • Stinky toy that smells of Mum and siblings

  • Pet puppy contract

  • Weaned onto a quality raw food

  • Microchipped

  • Early socialisation

  • Puppy guide covering essential purchases, feeding,  grooming, early care & training

  • My continued professional support for the life of the dog

I do not sell my dogs with breeding rights or permit any contracted pet dogs to be used for breeding.  I will only consider established breeders in Europe or overseas who belong to the Alaeu, Wala or Alaa. 

Waiting List Process :

  • usually via an initial enquiry email telling me all about yourself, lifestyle, family, home and work situation. 

  • I will reply within 48hours and request a zoom chat with you lasting about 30-45mins. 

  • Following the Zoom meeting I will email you to recap our conversation along with my payment information to proceed.

 

  1. To reserve a place on my waiting list for a Pet Puppy, a non-refundable £300 deposit is required.

  2. Once your puppy litter is born and you can commit to a puppy, then a further amount is requested.

  3. The final amount is due just prior to collection. 

Payment Process :

Northbound Australian Labradoodles sell our pups for a pet price with no breeding terms permitted. A pet puppy contract is issued once you have chosen your puppy and this includes a 12month spay/neuter agreement.

The price of your Northbound puppy is across four parts:

  • I request a £300 non-refundable deposit to join my waiting list, this is to ensure committed homes only apply.

  • A further deposit of £600 is required to secure a puppy only once the litter is safely born and I know there are enough puppies for each waiting home.

  • The third payment must be received before the puppy is collected for their new home. 

  • The fourth balance payment is due only if contract terms are not followed and the pet dog remains intact, un-neutered or un-spayed past 12months old. Vets routinely neuter between 6-12months old as standard.

  • Completing the permanent spay/neuter operation and providing the vet invoice as confirmation prior to 12months old will void the final fourth balance payment. 

  • The microchip held in the Northbound ALD Ltd name will be transferred to the new owner once spay/neuter complete.

(Price is subject to review and change) 

Master List Explained :

There are two waiting lists; Mini-Small Medium (15-19"), or Medium-Standard (19-23").  

 

The master list system was set up after a couple of my girls did not fall pregnant. This meant that homes that could not take a puppy, were then unable to move onto the next girls litter as this was already fully reserved, and this to me seemed very unfair.

 

Over the years I have noticed that homes are most specific over size than any other area, and so the two lists were devised with homes being allocated on individual preference.

 

The Master Lists are hugely successful because the benefits to the waiting families are;

  • families can be flexible on their puppy timing in case of illness, house move etc...

  • families can move up the list and 'overtake' other families who may be constrained by timing, holidays already booked, temperament required or size.

  • families are not stuck with a particular girls mating and subject to the girl falling pregnant and having a large enough litter.

  • families can and do decide to wait for a later litter, which then allows other homes who may only have been on the reservation list for 1-2months to take a puppy.

Temperament is still the priority and recommendations for litter suitability will be discussed with each home.

Once puppy is born :

A whole host of exciting things happen. 

  1. You will be emailed a new born litter photo and given key dates for puppy choosing, puppy take home and vaccination dates for your calendar.

  2. You will be invited to join my Northbound owners private Facebook group to follow videos and photos of your litter plus you can pull on the support and guidance of all my experienced owners, as well as the mass of advice I provide.

  3. You will be emailed a detailed 70 page plus Northbound Puppy Guide that covers everything from; what to buy, how to take puppy home, how and what to feed and training advice.

  4. You will be invited to join my PuppyCam to watch your litter grow.

  5. You will receive weekly emails to make sure you are prepared and have 'tasks' to do and research

  6. and so much more....

Puppies are terribly hard work.

They require immense dedication, time and the commitment to attend regular training sessions to achieve the dog you dream of.  

Well behaved dogs aren’t born perfect (as much as I try!), it takes my early socialisation and key stimulation, and your positive, rewards based training via regular obedience classes or a 1-1 trainer to achieve the dog you want.

Please note, I DO NOT SELL breeding dogs, or allow breeding rights.

My puppies are pet homes only and there is no deviation or negotiation on this.

An Australian Labradoodle can live for up to 15 years and require regular weekly grooming and care.

They are highly intelligent, exceedingly sociable and active dogs. 

They are NOT teddy bears or fur babies. They need owners who have common sense, a proactive nature and a love of being outdoors and investing time in training.
