We work hard to find the best puppy for you and your family based on your characteristic preferences. All of our puppies are temperament tested to help determine their future temperament, which helps us determine the puppy that will be the best match for your family.

At Ashford Manor Labradoodles, we have a 2 year genetic health guarantee. What this means is that if one of our puppies has an inherited genetic health problem, we will refund half your purchase price for vet expenses or give you a new replacement puppy. We will need to have a written statement from your veterinarian, and we will need to have the puppy checked by our veterinarian as well. All expenses for this will be provided by the purchaser.
Our process is a little different than a lot of breeders, it is not a first come first serve basis. We want to ensure that every family and puppy match is the best possible fit.
- To do this we have families fill out an Ashford Manor Labradoodle Puppy Application.
- We try to take pictures every other week to show you how the puppies are growing and developing; as well as see what puppies each family likes.
- Around 7 weeks of age we crate them all up and take them to the trainer for temperament testing where they will test the litter and each individual puppy.
- This testing is performed in a location the puppies have never been to, have never met the tester, and see all kinds of other dogs.
- After temperament testing we look at each families application, the puppies they like, and the temperament test to help find the best suited pairing of family to puppy.
Purchasing a puppy from Ashford Manor is a three-step process. We have learned, over time, that having conversations with each prospective puppy family has been the best method to a successful, agreeable, and happy transaction; You have a chance to learn more about us first-hand and determine if we are a suitable breeder for you. We have the opportunity to determine if you are a good match for one of our puppies plus tell you about our current and upcoming litters.
- The first step for you, the prospective puppy family, is to contact us and also fill out a Puppy Application (which can be found below on this page).
- After you have had a chance to speak with us and we have had a chance to review the application, we will then direct you back to this page to make an initial deposit (the initial deposit is the same for all class levels of our puppies). This deposit ensures that you have a spot in the queue. It is during this time that you will also choose in which class level of puppy you are interested (companion, therapy, or service). Each class level is a different price and is reflected in the balance payment of the next and final step.
- Finally, the third step will occur when you come to pick up the puppy or before it is delivered to you. You will be directed back to this page to pay the balance. Depending upon the class level you have chosen, you will choose a different balance price to pay. If you have questions, we can help you through this last step.
Pricing does not include training, nanny flights, or additional days at Ashford Manor after the “go-home” date.
Again, before making a deposit, it is imperative that you fill-out and submit a Puppy Application (see below) first. We want to have the opportunity to talk with you, which allows you to determine whether we are a suitable breeder for you and you are a good match for one of our puppies. Our puppies are raised in our home or in one of our guardians’ homes for a period of time. We and our guardians work with all of our puppies every day to ensure they are up to Ashford Manor standards. We take great pride in each and every puppy that leaves our home. They are also carefully matched with each family for the best experience for all involved.
** Again, the initial Deposit price is the same amount for all puppies! **
Balance payments are made in addition to the initial Deposit price that you will have submitted after filling out a Puppy Application form and speaking with us. The specific Balance price (different for each class of puppy) and initial Deposit make up the total cost of an Ashford Manor Australian Labradoodle puppy. If you have questions about this, contact us and we will be happy to explain it.
