Purchasing Process

We do everything possible to ensure you are getting the best possible puppy for your family by taking all the steps necessary to produce healthy, happy Australian Labradoodle pups who have been thoroughly and properly socialized along with full temperament testing to match each buyer’s specific circumstances to be sure the fit is just right and will last a lifetime. 

Step 1

Submit an Application

The first step is to fill out a Puppy Application Form.

Application forms are opened three times a year, roughly in February, June and October. Puppies go home about six months after your application is submitted.

We announce on Social Media when applications are open or you can sign up for our Early Access program to have the Application Form emailed to you before the announcement on Social Media.

Step 2

Reservation Fee

After you have completed our Application form, we will be in touch to let you know the status of your Application. If approved, you will be emailed a link to pay an $800.00 non-refundable deposit. Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard or Visa Debit card.

*Your deposit is non-refundable, but you can defer to a later litter should a need arise. You can defer up to a maximum of three times. If you choose to defer, current pricing will apply to your second and third payments.

Step 3

Selecting a Litter

Once we have received your non-refundable deposit we will be in touch via email to determine which of the available litters will best suit your family.

Step 4

Honeymoon

When the Mama of your litter comes into season we will let you know, this is the really exciting part! You will get regular updates throughout the entire process.

We will email once your Mama has had a Honeymoon and let you know the expected due date for your litter.

After a successful Honeymoon you will get updates on Mom and how her pregnancy is going. We will email with updates once labour begins and send photos of the puppies!

Step 5

Your Puppy is Born

After your puppy is born the second payment of $1700 is due. You will get a link to pay via email.

Over the next eight weeks you will get regular updates via email, social and You Tube!

You can check out a few examples below:

You Tube is the heart of our update process

Updates:

Each week we will do a litter update showing you all the puppies and letting you know about their milestones each week.

Check out this example: https://youtu.be/K8YHGdK9nk8 

Educational:

Every week we cover topics that help you prepare for your puppy’s arrival. For example, getting your home ready, nutrition, exercise, socialisation, alone time and other helpful tips.

Here is an example on crate training: https://youtu.be/RQQzk7KvtoA

Important Information:

We send you a video going over your contract and all the documents in your pick-up folder (also sent by email).

Email is the administrative hub and all critical information will be emailed to you.

We will send important dates for your litter, family visit day, allocation day and the best day; puppy pick up day by email.

After the 5 week Puppy family visit we will email a questionnaire so we get to know your family and lifestyle better. This helps us match you with the perfect puppy. You can find out more about how we do that here: https://youtu.be/uPwNPjxopOo

And, you can of course also reach out by email anytime if you have any questions or concerns.

When the puppies are around 5 weeks of age, we will invite you to come to our home and meet the puppies! This is a fun Saturday afternoon where you can play with all the puppies and meet the other families in your litter. It’s a great time to arrange for puppy playdates with families living near you.

*Family visits are Covid 19 PHO dependent. If a PHO restricts in person visits we will do a live video meeting instead.

We have two Zoom meetings with all the families in your litter.

The first Zoom meeting is after the Puppy Family Visit. Everyone usually has a lot of questions about training, feeding, sleeping, etc. and this is good chance to ask those questions.

We invite our in-house trainer, Taylor to join us so you can ask all your training or Head Start related questions too.

The Second Zoom meeting is just before pick up day. We review all the documents in your pick up package, provide some tips on traveling and transitioning your new puppy. This is a great chance to ask questions about feeding, introducing your puppy to friends and anything else on your mind without all the excitement of puppies running around!

We post pictures of the puppies regularly to Facebook and Instagram. These are usually just candid pictures of the puppies being cute and going about their day.

We also manage a private Facebook group just for owners. This has proven to be an invaluable resource for families to ask questions and get support from other Van Isle Doodles owners. An invitation is sent out once your deposit has been paid.

Step 6

Final Payment and Allocation

When your puppy is 6 weeks old, the final payment of $1700 is due.

This is also when we will assign puppies to their families. This is one of the most exciting days.

Step 7

Your Puppy goes Home!

When your puppy is approximately 8 weeks old, your labradoodle will be available for you to pick up from our home or be hand delivered to you. Please Contact Us for hand delivery options and pricing.

Price and Payment

At Van Isle Doodles all of our companion Australian labradoodle puppies are $4200.00 regardless of colour, pattern or gender.

Some breeders charge a premium for colour or pattern. As professional labradoodle breeders we believe in matching families with dogs based on the ideal fit in terms of temperament.

We always take your preferences into consideration and do our best to accommodate them.
