1. What is the adoption fee of an Australian Labradoodle puppy?
Each puppy is 3000 EUR plus shipping. If the puppy has to stay longer than 12 weeks, additional fee apply. Shipping is usually around 350-400 EUR. We help and prepare all transport papers for the puppy.
2. What do you want from us as a potential puppy owner?
Love and proper care. My pups must attend training classes, they must be socialized properly with people, dogs, animals and the external environment. You must walk them every day! You have to put in the effort, I put in the effort raising the best and healthiest puppies I can and I want my pups to have the best future.
If you are not going to attend training classes, or you attend a token couple of weeks, if you think it’s raining the dog can exercise in the garden, if you expect a puppy to be obedient and walk to heel because you think they do that automatically without effort, if you want the dream of a nice pretty obedient dog without putting in the effort, then please do not contact us.
3. Are all Australian Labradoodles asthma/allergy friendly?
The Australian Labradoodle is allergy friendly by nature. There are three distinct coat types: wool, fleece and hair. Fleece and Wool tend to affect a person’s allegories less while hair, as with any breed, can sometimes provoke mild allergic reactions.
4. What size Australian Labradoodles do you breed?
At Amber Labradoodles, we breed the multi-generation Miniature and Small Medium Australian Labradoodles.
Ranging from 8 kg (40cm). for our smallest female to 18kg/60cm for our largest male, our dogs are the smallest of the breed. Most of our dogs average 16kg/50cm at maturity.
5. Will my puppy have its vaccination?
Our puppies are raised in our home from birth. When age dictates, each puppy is given the necessary regimen of vaccinations.
In addition, each dog is dewormed and micro chipped (for identification) prior to leaving our home. We allow puppies to go home after second vaccine so it is safe for her/him to be properly socialized as soon as she/he is with new family.
6. Can I come and see some Australian Labradoodles in person?
Yes, we welcome visitors and are pleased to present our dogs and test allergies always after previous appointment. Please contact us in advance. We are located in Gdynia, Poland.
7. What health problems affect Australian Labradoodles?
Labradoodles are generally healthy dogs. Nevertheless, as with other long-eared breeds, they can suffer from infections of the ear. Regular cleaning and checks from time to time will help prevent this. It is important that breeders hip score breeding stock.
Older dogs can sometimes suffer from stiff and painful joints. Breeders should only breed from parents that have lower than average hip scores. It is important that breeders continue to health test breeding stock, to maintain the Labradoodles vibrant health status.

8. What about early spay/neuter?
Early spay/neuter is one of the medical advances in the veterinary field that has had a huge impact on the number of unplanned puppies and kittens filling the animal shelters and SPCA’s. Unless a person is showing a dog in the conformation ring and/or breeding the dog, there is really no reason not to spay or neuter pet puppies.
Most dogs are altered at or before six months of age, while they are still juvenile and have not had onset of adult hormones (testosterone and progesterone). Thus, whether your puppy has been altered at seven weeks or six months of age, really makes little difference to the dog’s development. But it does reduce the risk of certain cancers and it does reduce the risk of unwanted or unplanned puppies of uncertain parentage ,and it guarantees that none of our puppies will ever end up in puppy mills! If you have more questions/concerns please contact us.
9. Which makes a better pet, a girl or a boy?
As our Australian Labradoodles are spayed or neutered while they are still very young, the differences between the sexes is minimal. The girls do not experience hormonal cycles and the boys never develop the testosterone-driven behaviors such as marking territory, lifting legs to pee or wandering in search of girlfriends.
Because these differences are eliminated with spay/neutering before sexual maturation, we recommend that families base their preference on personality and activity level rather than sex. It is more important that you have a dog that suits your lifestyle, which is why we ask about your activity level (mellow, moderate, active) when you inquire about purchasing a labradoodle puppy from us.
10. I have young children; is an Australian Labradoodle suitable for a young family?
Yes, the Australian Labradoodle is a gentle breed that is well suited to being a family pet… BUT very young children are often rough with puppies/dogs and need constant supervision, for the safety of the puppy as well as the child/children!
You are welcome to discuss with us your own family situation and we can help you decide if now is a good time to bring a new family member home or not.
11. How should I train my Australian Labradoodle?
With consistent loving firmness! All labradoodles will want to know where their place is in your family and they will be happiest if you teach them how to please you. Your puppy is old enough to learn to sit, lay down, come when called and to not jump up when you get him or her home at 8 weeks of age. Praise and give your puppy a treat when he does what you are looking for, and correct naughty behavior.
There is a current trend of “positive dog training” that only uses rewards or praise while ignoring undesirable behavior. You want to reward good behavior (make it easy for them to do the behaviors you want) and ignore or discourage bad behavior (by loudly saying NO or STOP) is some situations.
12. How much exercise do Australian Labradoodles need?
Low to moderate. Your labradoodle will need a walk once or twice a day and pee breaks at least three times a day as an adult. They enjoy walking and being out and about, but are not a high-energy dog that needs to have a 3 km run. A 30 minute stroll around the neighborhood will keep them happy. While they are well able to keep up if you go on a hike, they don’t require it.
13. How should I groom our Australian Labradoodle?
Australian Labradoodles require occasional brushing and infrequent baths. We use a slicker brush with our dogs and it is important to brush the coat right from the skin. Most mats are formed closer to the skin, so if you just brush the surface of the hair, you will miss the parts that really need attention. Also, some coat textures may require more brushing than others, and you will get to know what your own dog needs. In general, longer coats require more brushing than shorter coats.
Frequent bathing will actually remove the natural oils from the coat, and so we most often will bath our dogs just with water unless they are really filthy from rolling in mud. Very often, if you brush them out after their coat dries, the dirt will just fall out without bathing.
