I have questions, can you give me a call?
Email is our preferred method of contact and lets us keep track of our many conversations. While we wish we had the time to speak to everyone who sends in an inquiry individually on the phone, we are unable to due to the high volume of emails we receive on a daily basis requesting calls. Our job is 24 hours a day 7 days a week caring for our dogs and litters, unfortunately we aren’t able to be on the phone all day while providing the level of care, attention, and socialization, and that we strive to uphold for our animals. We understand this is a big commitment and want everyone to be as comfortable as possible with our process. We have created a testimonials page and have social media channels that reflect how we run things for everyone interested to check out.

Can I visit your facility and meet your dogs before placing a deposit or picking my new puppy?
Our "facility" is our home. All of our puppies are raised here and cared for by our family. We aren't a pet store with business hours open to the public so, we currently only allow visits from those on our waiting list who are coming on scheduled visitation days to pick out or pick up their new puppy. The majority of our dogs live in guardian homes therefore, they aren't always at our home to be seen.
Our mom dogs are usually present during our pick out days, however they may or may not not be available to be seen when coming to pick up your puppy at 8 weeks- mom dogs may have gone home by the time your puppy is to be picked up.
For the safety of our dogs and young puppies as well as our family, we do not allow tours of our home.
Are Doodles Hypoallergenic?
Technically, no dog is "hypoallergenic" as some people can be allergic to things other than fur like a dog's saliva or urine. Doodles have allergy friendly properties, making them suitable for individuals who suffer from mild to moderate pet allergies. If you or someone in your home has severe allergies we recommend additional testing before deciding to get on our waiting list.
Do Doodles shed?
Our Doodles are low-non shedding. We cannot guarantee any dog to be hypoallergenic or non-shedding as each coat can vary although shedding in our adult Doodles is generally very mild. F1Bs, F2Bs, and Multigens will typically shed less (if any) than an F1 and are recommended for those with allergies/concerns about excessive shedding.
What is the difference between F1, F2, F1B, etc?
We currently only work with F1, F1B, F2B, and Mulit-Gen Doodles. Coat type will vary no matter what generation and breed of Doodle you choose. Typically, an F1 pairing will produce straight & wavy coats. F1B pairings typically produce wavy & curly coats. F2B and Multi-Gen pairings will typically produce straight, wavy, and curly coats.
An F1 Doodle puppy is a result of two different purebred parent dogs.
Example: A purebred Aussie x a purebred Poodle would make an F1 Aussiedoodle
An F1B Doodle puppy is a result of an F1 Doodle parent and a purebred Poodle.
Example: An F1 Bernedoodle x a purebred Poodle would make an F1B Bernedoodle
An F2 Doodle puppy is a result of an F1 Doodle and an F1 Doodle.
Example: An F1 Aussiedoodle x an F1 Aussiedoodle would make an F2 Aussiedoodle
An F2B Doodle puppy is the result of an F1 Doodle parent and an F1B Doodle parent.
Example: An F1 Bernedoodle x an F1B Bernedoodle would make an F2B Bernedoodle
A Multi-Gen Doodle puppy is the result of an F1B or higher gen parent and an F1B or higher gen parent.
Example: An F2B Bernedoodle x an F1B Bernedoodle would make a Multi-Gen Bernedoodle

What are the differences between the Aussiedoodle, Bernedoodle, and Australian Mountain Doodle?
Each puppy's temperament will depend on that of their parents' rather than the exact breed, as all three of these breeds have similar characteristics. Generally our Aussiedoodles are recommended for those who are looking for an active dog. Bernedoodles are great for those who want a Doodle on the calmer side. The Australian Mountain Doodle is perfect for anyone wanting something in between! Please keep in mind energy level will vary and will depend on your particular puppy or that pairing.
Aussiedoodle: Australian Shepherd & Poodle hybrid- Smart, loyal, eager to please, easy to train, medium-high energy level, therapy and service dog potential, active and energetic.

Bernedoodle: Bernese Mountain Dog & Poodle hybrid- Smart, loyal, easy to train but can be stubborn at times, low-medium energy level, therapy and service dog potential, laid back yet playful.

Australian Mountain Doodle: Australian Shepherd, Bernese Mountain Dog, and Poodle hybrid- Smart, loyal, eager to please, easy to train, medium energy level, therapy and service dog potential, mellow, social and outgoing.

Coat type is dependent on specific pairing & generation rather than breed.
What sizes do you work with?
We currently work primarily with Mini and Medium/small Standard sizes.
*Please note that we cannot guarantee adult weight and/or height at matuity*
Our Standard Aussiedoodles are generally 40-50+ pounds at maturity.
Our Mini Bernedoodles are generally 30-40+ pounds at maturity.
Our Standard Bernedoodles are generally 50-60+ pounds at maturity.
Our Mini Australian Mountain Doodles are generally 30-40+ pounds at maturity.
Our Standard Australian Mountain Doodles are generally 50-60+ pounds at maturity.
Every now and then we will have "medium" size litters that fall between Mini and Standard. Estimated size will depend on exact pairing and breed. We are no longer taking deposits for larger Standards well over the 50-60 pound range.
What colors do your Doodles come in?
Our Aussiedoodles and Australian Mountain Doodles come in a variety of colors such as Merle, Tricolor, Phantom, and occasionally Bicolor. Our Bernedoodles come primarily in Tricolor and Phantom with Bicolors on occasion. For more information on each color please click HERE.
Are your dogs health tested?
The health of our sires and dams is pivotal to our breeding program. All of our parent dogs are health tested or in the process of completing their health testing. Health testing results for each parent dog can be viewed on our "parents" tab.
Do Multigens/higher generations have more health issues than an F1? Does one breed have more health issues than the other?
We are currently working towards producing primarily Multigen litters with only a few F1 litters per year in some of our breeds. To put it simply, puppies are only as healthy as their parents, no matter the generation, no matter the breed! A Multigen, F1B, F2B, etc. will not have anymore health issues than an F1 simply because of their generation. Issues can arise in any puppy if their parents come from poor quality lines, have structural issues, or have not been screened for breed specific diseases. A Multigen line in a relatively new breed still has so much gene diversity than your average purebred dog who may have had inbreeding or disease in their lines for hundreds of years. Any disease we are not able to test for is out of our control although we take each of our dog’s lineage and health into account before planning out our litters. Diseases known to commonly affect our breeds (which are screened for) would be Hip Dysplasia, Canine Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA), Von Willebrand Disease (VWD), etc. Some diseases, like Hip Dysplasia can be brought on by environmental factors rather than genetics.
Do Doodles enjoy hiking/being outdoors?
Yes! The majority of our Doodles go to active families who enjoy outdoors activities together. Our Doodles love simple walks around the block, exploring hiking trails and some enjoy swimming in rivers/ponds.
Are Doodles good with kids?
Yes! Our puppies are raised in our home with children and make wonderful family dogs!
Where are you located/what if I'm out of state?
We are located near Salt Lake City, Utah. Not from here? No worries! We offer hand delivery via flight nanny all throughout the U.S. starting at $500 (depending on location and time of year). Our flight nannies bring your puppy on the plane as a carry-on (being cared for the entire time) and will meet you at your nearest airport with your new furry family member.
What is the total price?
Each of our breeds are priced differently based on color. Please view our PRICING page for a breakdown of the total cost. Our deposit (non-refundable) is $500 which is included in the final purchase price.
Do you have puppies available now/when is your next available litter?
It is rare that we have puppies available to the public right away, although if we happen to they will be posted on our AVAILABLE PUPPIES page. Generally, more common colors like Phantom & Bicolor will be listed here if ever available. It is best to plan well in advance and get on our wait list if you are serious about getting a puppy from us! We cannot guarantee when our next available litter will be as we do have a wait list which isn't compiled by specific litter. Please see our UPCOMING LITTERS page for more info on future plans we have coming up!
How does your waiting list/choosing my puppy work?
We compile our waiting list by breed rather than specific pairing as we are unable to guarantee how many puppies we will have in each litter. You are welcome to be placed on our list under multiple breeds if you would like to have the option of choosing any type of Doodle we offer when available. A $500 deposit will secure your spot in line. Once on our list you will gain exclusive access to updates via our Facebook wait list group. Here everyone can view their wait list numbers while following all of our planned breedings and litters. We will contact you individually if we will have puppies available to you from a pairing that may be what you're looking for. You may choose to pick from the available litter or opt to wait for another opportunity. By passing on a litter you will not forfeit your original wait list placement and will continue to move closer to the top of the list. Puppy selections within each litter typically start once they have reached 3-4 weeks of age. We will provide photos and video prior to picking. Local families and those who wish to travel to see the puppies will be able to meet them in person on our "puppy party" day after the puppies have had their first set of vaccines after 6 weeks of age. Visits will only be permitted on this day and when coming to pick up your puppy at 8 weeks old. Photos of each litter will be updated and posted on our social media channels bi-weekly. We do not take requests for photos/videos and will share pictures of your chosen puppy when we have them ready for you!
What is the wait time for a puppy?
Generally the wait time for a puppy is about 18-24 months after you place your deposit. Your wait time could be shorter or longer depending on what size, color, and gender you are looking for. If you are not particular on color, gender, etc. your wait time could be as short as 6-12 months. Please note that our litters are generally spoken for well before they are even born. At this time we are only accepting deposits for Australian Mountain Doodles.
Please take a moment to look over our website and fill out a PUPPY APPLICATION if you would like to reserve your spot in line on our waiting list.
