I want an AussieDoodle Puppy but how does it work?

  • Are you a puppy mill?
    We’ve sent a lot of puppies home to families just like yours. Every puppy, raised in our homes, one by one. We don’t use puppy brokers. Every AussieDoodle we send home is supported, coordinated, and raised by us.

  • Should I visit my AussieDoodle breeder to make sure they are rebutable?
    That depends. Do some research on the breeder you are considering. Do they look reputable? Do they have photos and videos of themselves online? If you think the breeder is sketchy, they probably are.

  • Is it ok to surprise my wife with an AussieDoodle puppy for Chirstmas?
    AussieDoodle puppies, or any puppy for that matter, are a lot of work to raise. Surprise! Here’s a puppy! Have fun taking care of it! After the cuteness goes away and puppy is peeing on the floor and biting your pant legs, your wife might not be too happy with you.

  • How will I get my AussieDoodle puppy home?
    We’ve got lots of options including delivery to your nearest major airport, or we can drive toward you to shave some time off your trip.

  • Where are you located?
    We are a growing group of families all over the USA. But don’t worry, you’ll feel like you’re growing up with your AussieDoodle puppy and you’ll get to know us like your friends.

  • When and how to I get to pick my new AussieDoodle puppy?
    We’ll help you pick a mom and dad that has the temperament that fits your family best, but you’re not locked into any certain litter and you get to choose the color and size and gender of Aussie Doodle you want.

You sell a ton of puppies. Are you a puppy mill?

We’re not a puppy mill, or a puppy farm. EVERY one of our mamas and daddies is a family pet and lives in their forever home. AwesomeDoodle puppies are raised in our homes by loving families just like yours, exposed to the sounds of the TV, vacuum, blender, washing machine, etc. We start socializing your puppy, we start the crate training process, and we start the potty training routine. Every puppy goes home knowing how to sit and wait for treats. Click here to see how we raise our puppies. What determines if a breeder is “responsible” or “reputable?” The Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club states that responsible breeders should raise their animals with the intent to produce healthy dogs, and to ensure that all animals are provided responsible homes and socialization.

Can I visit AwesomeDoodle?

We don't send a puppy home with just anyone, so we love to meet our future puppy owners and get to know them, and what kind of life they will provide for the puppy we raised. You've probably had someone tell you, "You better visit that breeder before you buy a puppy from them, so you can see if they keep their kennels clean and how they treat their dogs!". And that's absolutely true, if you're buying a puppy from a traditional breeder. The majority of breeders, especially AKC breeders, raise their puppies in a kennel-like environment. It would be a good idea to visit them, so you can see how and where their puppies are raised. However, most breeders won't allow you to visit. Let's face it, 7 week old puppies are pooping machines, and it is extremely difficult to keep a kennel clean and smelling fresh. In [read more]

Can I get an AussieDoodle puppy for Christmas?

AwesomeDoodle makes it special: If you're getting a puppy for your family for Christmas, but your puppy isn't ready to go home until AFTER Christmas, AwesomeDoodle will make a special video JUST for your family, introducing your puppy on video and telling you congratulations. We will even say your kid's names in the video, if you want us to. Surprise puppies: We highly discourage "surprising" your family with a puppy for Christmas, birthdays, etc. While we may want to surprise our kids with a puppy on Christmas, YOU are the one who will be taking care of it. So make sure you are getting a dog because YOU want one, not because your kids want one. Timing: We often have puppies ready to go home in December, but we cannot control when mom has her puppies. If you want to surprise your family with a puppy for Christmas, you may [read more]
