Congratulations! You’ve browsed the website and fallen in love with the thought of adding an Australian Labradoodle to your life. You may consider this your application for a Starlight Ridge puppy. By answering these questions, you are supplying us with the information we need to choose the best puppy for you, your family, and your lifestyle. What are your days like? Are you active and want a running partner? Are you laid back and want a live teddy bear to relax with, as you watch TV? The more information you give us, the more accurately we will be able to match you with your new best friend!
I do my best to breed sound, healthy, well-socialized dogs that continue to better the standard for this breed. After that it’s up to you to continue that work & to nurture this pup to its full potential. Raising any dog requires a substantial commitment of time, energy & dedication. I strongly encourage professional dog training and am happy to research your area for qualified trainers.
Starlight Ridge Applications are registered on a first come first serve basis; secured by a $500.00 deposit/ booking fee. After we receive your application and deposit, we will contact you (Usually within 24 hours) to go over your application, litter options, and expectations. Deposit can be paid via PayPal or by mailing a check payable to Starlight Ridge Australian Labradoodles at 1132 NW Starlite Place, Grants Pass, OR 97526.
Once you are placed on your desired litter’s reservation list, we will send you birth announcements when your litter arrives, as well as updates with pictures and videos as your puppy grows. We want you to share in the process as you are “expecting”. When your puppy reaches four weeks, your final payment is due. At that time, we will begin making travel arrangements for your puppy to join your family in his or her new home.When the puppies reach seven weeks, we have a neutral party conduct Volhard Temperament Testing on each puppy individually. With this insight, we match you with a puppy that is just right for you!
Every breeder wants the best forever home for their dogs. When you buy a Starlight Ridge Puppy, you also ‘buy’ me as part of the package. I am completely available to my families for the questions that inevitably come with owning a new puppy. This application is the beginning of us getting to know each other. The questions are basic, but they are intended to prompt you to objectively examine the step that you are considering. I look forward to getting to know you, and I sincerely welcome you into the Starlight Ridge family.
