GUARDIAN APPLICATION

Owning a puppy is a life long commitment. At Dusty Rose Doodles, we require all potential pet guardians to complete an application form. All applications are reviewed and if selected, you will be notified. 

Goldendoodle Application

Labradoodle Application

DEPOSIT & PRIORITY RATING SYSTEM

 

Upon the approval of your application, a non-refundable deposit is required to secure your Dusty Rose Doodle. The date of deposit will determine your position for the selection of the sex and color of your puppy. At this time you will receive your priority rating. 

 

As an example: There is five female, and 4 males born. The first family that made a deposit payment selected a male on their application. This family will be the first to select the male puppy of their choice. The second family to make a deposit payment selected a female their application, they will have the first selection from the female puppies. We do try to take fewer deposits than expected puppies. If more deposits are made then there are puppies available, Dusty Rose Doodles reserves the right to apply your deposit to the next litter or will return

the deposit at your discretion.

PUPPY SELECTION

  • The birth of our litters will be announced on our Facebook page.
     

  • At 4 weeks old, pictures will be posted of all puppies
     

  • At 5 weeks old, you will receive pictures of your preferred sex based on your application. You will choose your puppy by selecting the color of the collar on the puppy of your choice. Your priority rating is what determines your position to select a puppy (see above).
     

  • At 7 weeks old, pictures will be sent to you again of your puppy along with a schedule for the pick-up of your puppy.
     

  • At 8 weeks old, your puppy will be ready to leave our ranch and join your family.

Dusty Rose Doodles has a policy that for the safety and well-being of our Doodles there will be NO visitations until pickup date and time. Up to three weeks of age we do very little with the mother and puppies. We believe this time is so important for the well-being and nurturing of the puppies. This is their bonding time. The mother loves and teaches her babies how to be content puppies.

 

At three weeks old, the puppies will have their identification collar put on them. The greatest interaction with the puppies and people is done from 3 weeks on up to 8 weeks of age. During this time they are well adjusted, had many life experiences, are content and happy with their role in life, and are ready for their new homes.

SPAY/NEUTER CONTRACT

 

At Dusty Rose Doodles we believe in the healthy growth and temperament of our puppies. It is, for this reason, that we do not practice early sterilization of 8-week old puppies. In order to ensure all Dusty Rose Doodle puppies are spayed/neutered at an appropriate time, purchasers agree to abide by our Non-Breeding policy. Part of our commitment to being responsible breeders is ensuring new owners of a Dusty Rose Doodles do not breed their puppy. All Dusty Rose Doodles are required to be spayed/neutered by 12 months of age.

 

Dusty Rose Doodles Requires: 

​​

A veterinarian’s bill or proof, to be texted, or emailed back to DRD at the time of the procedure

Non-compliance, with this agreement, will cause a breeding contract to come into effect and an extra charge of $3800.00 may be billed if proof of spay/neuter is not received by 12 months of age.

Please note that we operate Monday-Saturday and are close Sundays to enjoy time with our family and to respect the sabbath day.

Mark and Valerie Watson, on their ranch located in Rosemary, Alberta. Since 1985, Mark and Valerie have raised animals on their hobby farm, including llamas, sheep, goats, horses, chickens, exotic birds, and most recently, Labradoodles and Goldendoodles.

A Message From Mark & Valerie
"Our puppies are whelped in our home and loved as we watch them grow and mature. We take pleasure in the comforts of our ranch; as young seniors, we adore the space it provides us and our four-legged companions. We find it irresistible to take long walks with Beau, Bailey, and Oakley enjoying the nature that surrounds us. As they enjoy their surroundings, they are well-conditioned to house noises, children, other animals, outdoor noises, water, yet enjoying being a happy, healthy, and well-adjusted puppies."
