Dawson Creek ask that the puppies coat does not get cut until around 8 months of age. During the first 8 months we will make photos that will be used for our website and social media channeling. Basic puppy cuts are fine during this time that includes trimming around the eyes and sanitary areas. Proper grooming and frequent brushing is essential in maintaining the Australian Labradoodle.
If you love puppies and enjoy being a part of the puppy process we recommend a female. If you choose to be a guardian of a female you can expect for your girl to have 4 litters of puppies. Depending on the female will determine the breeding process. Just like people, some girls will be ready to have a litter each cycle while others will need to miss a cycle between litters. This will be determined by Dawson Creek and the guardian. The guardians of females will need to be aware of the heat cycle process and how to identify the heat cycle. The guardian will need to keep the female away from intact male dogs. The heat cycle awareness is a very important role in the guardian process.. Most girls will complete their breeding career by age 4. None of our breeding girls will have more than 4 litters of puppies. At the end of the girls breeding career Dawson Creek will spay the female and give all registration papers to the guardian.
If you love companionship but are not genuinely excited about puppies and want to promote the breed we suggest a male. If you choose to be a guardian of a male you can expect for your male to be in the breeding process for approximately 6 years. You will be expected to have your male readily available from time to time when needed. This is important due to the fact that timing is very important during the breeding process. The guardian will also need to keep the male away from intact females during the female’s heat cycle. At the end of the male’s breeding career Dawson Creek will neuter the male and give all registration papers to the guardian.
