Adoption Process

Our breeding program is focused on careful selection of genetic health, strength and temperaments with a focus on fun loving, happy, confident, extremely clever and intuitive companion, assistance and breeding dogs who are easy to train.

 

Our litters are lovingly and carefully raised in our home by our family, so our puppies are ready for your family. Our goal is to breed healthy, happy, intelligent, Australian Labradoodles with low to non-shedding coats in fleece or wool.    The low/non-shedding fleece and wool coats in the Australian Labradoodle are considered allergy friendly with a low doggy odour.  

 

From October 2020 our Kari Labradoodle Puppy price is $3900.00* (inc GST) - regardless of gender, colour or size.

 

All Kari puppies receive 2 health checks from our vets before they join their new families. You will receive a full pedigree outline and detailed notes for your puppy on feeding, health, exercise, training and grooming tips as well as a lifetime of support from Kari Labradoodles.

How To Adopt A Kari Puppy?

If you would like to adopt a Kari Australian Labradoodle puppy please complete our application form.  We do ask a few questions, but when you join a waiting list for an upcoming litter, this information enables us to best match a puppy to your needs.   Head over to the Puppy Application Form  page and complete the online application form.

What Happens After You've Submitted Your Form?

Once you have sent us your application form and you/we have chosen an upcoming litter that will be most suitable, you are placed on our waiting list and we will keep you updated with confirmed pregnancy information, pregnancy x-rays and the approx arrival of the litter.    When we know that we can offer you a puppy from this litter there is a $800 non refundable deposit to hold a puppy.    Final payment of $3100 will be required in full prior to collection of your puppy at 8 weeks of age.  If circumstances change, we ask that you notify us as soon as possible, before the puppies are 5 weeks and we can move you onto a another waiting list.    This allows us time to allocate a new family to this pup.       

 

We will keep you updated with lots of photos and/or videos each week of the puppies via our social media platforms of Facebook and Instagram.   Allocations of puppies to families often do not occur until the pups have had their first health check and vaccinations at 6 weeks of age.  This is an ideal age to match temperament with families due to the social and physical development of the litter and to possibly choose a breeding quality puppy to be retained for our program.  This can sometimes depend on where you are placed on the waiting list.     At this time you can visit if you live nearby to meet and cuddle your new family member.  Visits to your puppy can only be arranged after 6 weeks as the health and well being of the mum and puppies is our priority. 

 

 We are able to arrange  transportation for your new family member to airports across Australia at your cost, and when flights and airlines are available to transport puppy at 8 weeks of age.    We will provide you with a quote if required.  ***Please note that currently due to the impact on COVID-19 to our industry we are not offering any interstate transport options***

What is a Guardian Puppy?

From time to time we will have an exceptional puppy from a litter that is an excellent example of the Australian Labradoodle Breed Standards, or that we might identify will bring something special to our breeding program.   As Kari Labradoodles does not operate kennels, and we already have 2 beautiful Australian Labradoodles living with us, we choose to home our other breeding dogs with carefully chosen guardian families who live within a 30-45 minute drive of Redcliffe.  Our  guardian families provide the love and care in a home environment, that our Labradoodles deserve.   The girls come back to Kari around 5-7 days before puppies are due and stay with us until the puppies are weaned. Our stud boys remain in our program for 5 years, and will need to visit with us from time to time for a day or so for matings.
