Why Designer Puppies?

Our companion puppies are uniquely bred for stable temperament and enthusiasm to appease their owners.  Beyond simply being cute and cuddly, our puppies make loyal and loving playmates, and their traits make them the ideal family pet. They will be an integral member of the family in no time and will increase the joy in your home tremendously.

What is a Goldendoodle?

A Goldendoodle is a mix between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle.

You get the family-friendly temperament of the Golden Retriever without the shedding. They are very loyal and intelligent. An F1 is a first generation puppy from a Golden Retriever and Poodle. An F1B is a first generation then bred to a Poodle, these are usually curlier with little shedding. A multi-generational Goldendoodle is a Goldendoodle bred to a Goldendoodle. They are often said to look like teddy bears.

What is a Cavapoo?

A Cavapoo is a mix between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Poodle.

Cavaliers are very mild-mannered, loving and loyal. When bred with a Poodle’s they will shed much less than a purebred Cavalier. F1 Cavapoos are first generation Cavapoos, 50% Cavalier and 50% Poodle. F1B means the first generation Cavapoo is then bred to a poodle, these usually are better for allergy sufferers.

Cavapoos also inherit the Poodle’s high intelligence and trainability. They are healthy, sturdy small dogs who get along well with children. They are a very popular crossbreed dog in Australia due to their exceptional temperaments, robustness and low-shed. Cavapoo puppies are the best of both breeds.

The Choice Paws Difference

Time

  • We spend time working with your puppy individually

 

All time is valuable and there is only so much in a day. Having quality time with each puppy allows me to work with them at their own speed. Often times smaller puppies learn skills a little slower than larger littermates. 

Breeding responsibly means not only breeding the number of puppies that there are wonderful homes for, it also means putting the time into making sure we are doing the best job raising the puppies. Spending quality time nurturing and guiding these little ones to be the best dog they can be for your family.  

 

From socialization activities, individual crate training and beginning basic manners. Puppies begin the process of learning how to be away from their littermates and start the formation of the canine-human connection.

 

Training

  • From crate training to potty training

The main pain points in getting a new puppy are getting them to sleep through the night and potty training. At Choice Paws I start early developing these foundations.  

There is a difference between crate training and crate exposure. 

Crate training is where the puppy practices multiple times during the day and at night being in the crate with the door closed.  Crate exposure is having the crate in the area where the puppy is free to choose if it wants to go in the crate or not. 

Crate training takes many hours of work with each puppy individually over weeks. I work on this skill for naps during the day and I start closing the door at night, waking up to potty them and then putting them back in the crate with the door closed. This is an essential skill the puppy needs to learn to transition to your home. 

Successful crate training facilitates potty training a win-win recipe!

Policies

Visitation

When you come to visit the puppies please, do not visit any other kennels, the veterinarian, dog park, dog rescue centers etc. that day. We don’t want to expose our puppies to any viruses such as the Parvovirus, Dog Influenza, Giardia & Coccidia that can easily be passed to our puppies.

Visitation of puppies can begin after 5 weeks of age, with an appointment. Until that point, I will keep you updated on the puppies through lots of photos and videos!

Health Guarantee

We provide a 3-Year genetic health guarantee for each puppy. 

Allergies

Designer breeds are better for allergy sufferers as the poodle is less likely to cause allergies. In addition, less shedding is also better for allergies. Our F1B and Multigenerational  puppies are the best choice for allergy sufferers.

If you or someone in your home has severe allergies we recommend additional testing before deciding to get a puppy.  We can not guarantee that you will not have allergies to our puppies.  We also can not guarantee no shedding.  We do our best with DNA testing and genetics to produce low shedding/non shedding dogs but there many genes that are not yet testable that can influence each dog differently.

People can also be allergic to different aspects of the dog. The dander, the hair/fur and also the saliva are the most common things people are allergic to.

Puppy Adoption Process

1. Approved applications will be offered the opportunity to place a $500 deposit after a FaceTime/Zoom meeting. Reservation fees are accepted through Zelle, Venmo and Good Dog. All fees go toward the final price of your puppy.

2. Families are placed on the Master Waitlist. Waitlist order is based off the date the deposit is received.

3. I will notify families at the top of the list that will likely have puppies fitting the desired size range. One Male, Female and an either spot will be initially offered. Families joining the litter will place a second $500 reservation fee. 

4. If more than three puppies are expected then the next families will be offered spots as well.

5. Final payments are due after the 6 week vet appointment. Payment must be paid in full before they can leave my care.

I post lots of videos and pictures on our instagram account.  I will have FaceTime sessions with families so they can get a closer look at the puppies to help choose the best match for them.

Our Pricing

See each litter for pricing as pricing varies by size.  Prices range from $4,000-5,000

What goes into the pricing?

We spend thousands of dollars and many hours per breeding dog performing genetic health testing, OFA testing, and on vet visits for breeding and our litters (progesterone testing, artificial insemination, ultrasound, x-rays, puppy vaccinations, supplies, etc).  We also pay thousands to buy high quality dogs to add to our program.  We also pay extra for breeding rights.  When we have a litter of puppies we countless hours with them!  It really is a 24-7 job.  There are many sleepless nights, we have them on holidays, special occasions, weekends, etc.    We also spend many many hours caring for our moms and puppies and training them.  We also take into account size our smaller moms have smaller litters but we still have the same fixed expenses.
