The choice to raise a puppy is quite a commitment! It can certainly be a rewarding experience. Preparing for your new puppy properly is the first step in a satisfying relationship.


Our doodle puppies are low to no shed. They do require maintenance to keep their soft coat beautiful and tangle free. Simply brushing them once a week as puppies is usually all that is required. Depending on coat type, and clip length, as adults they need to be brushed once a month or  less.  They require  clipping, as they don't shed  like a hair type dog. They require occasional bathing.


Young ones are often very sensitive and every experience is shaping their world for better or worse. There are many different ways to approach the exact details of raising your new puppy . If you do not already have experience or a plan, I cannot suggest strongly enough seeking out help before your puppy arrives.


Let us all strive to keep the  Australian Labradoodle breed  out of shelters  and in loving homes by raising awareness about the importance of proper training. 

Our puppies will be raised with Baxter & Bella Puppy School protocol and prepared for you to take the next steps in the program. I cannot highly enough recommend this program which is extremely easy for you to use and can be the key to your success in having the  most well behaved , adjusted, happy doodle you know!

They have all the help you will need in your puppy training adventure. By becoming a member, you will have  access to their whole program step by step.

I have compiled a list for puppy people of what I suggest having for the new arrival.

-DOG FOOD-  I use Diamond Naturals Lamb and Rice. My puppies are on the large breed puppy. I send home a small bag of food in case you decide to transition to something else. it needs to be mixed and gradually changed.

-CRATE- I really like the metal wire crate. They will be used to using one at night. I also recommend a baby fence or metal wire dog surround to help keep puppy in a small area for potty training, and a safe place in a busy home.

-SNUGGLE PUPPY- This is an awesome tool to help your puppy adjust to nighttime and just a whole new life. Not mandatory, but very helpful for puppy and human. smartpetlove.com  sold at many pet supply stores and online.

-SHAMPOO- My favorite is Earthbath puppy. It is gentle and safe for eyes. For my adults dogs, I use natural shampoo that I use for the family. Have never had skin problems in my dogs to date.
