Our Goldendoodle, Australian Labradoodle, and Double Doodle puppies are $3000
Our goal is to provide you with a healthy, well adjusted puppy that has been raised in our home. We strive to have down-to-earth, open communication with our puppy buyers, and we encourage you to ask lots of questions. When you get a puppy from us, we are a resource to you for the lifetime of your puppy!
Responsible Care of Breeding Dogs & Health Guarantee
We take pride in the fact that we have very high standards for the care and health of our adult breeding dogs. Our adults are, first and foremost, family pets. They live with us or a guardian family that values them as a companion. We are not a kennel, and that is why we cannot produce large numbers of litters a year! We do not breed excessively. Our females have just 3-4 litters, and then we spay our girls so that they can live out their life with their family. All dogs are current on vaccines and receive monthly parasite and heart worm prevention. All adult dogs in our home are fed a premium kibble that is supplemented with healthy, fresh food right out of our kitchen.
Before breeding, all of our adult dogs are all tested for breed specific abnormalities through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. Radiographs and veterinary exams prove normal hip, elbow, patella, and cardiac function through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animal. Each calendar year, every breeding dog has an OFA/CAER eye exam performed by a veterinary ophthalmologist. We run full genetic panels on each adult breeding dog to insure the genetic health of our pups. For more information regarding what we test for, visit our Health Testing page. Because of our strict health protocols, we offer a 2 year health warranty on the above congenital conditions and a lifetime guarantee against the genetic conditions that we test for.

How We Raise Our Puppies
Pups are born and raised in my home, and when pups are "on the ground" this is my full time job. The mother dog gives birth in my office (where I have a loft bed set up). I am always present at the birth, and puppies are color coded so that we can track their weights and personalities which helps us best match puppies to their new home. As they grow, the whelping box is expanded, which is connected to our living room and has a viewing window from our kitchen. We expand the whelping box as pups get older, and intermingle with our adult dogs to learn manners and socialization skills.
We raise our pups using a variety of methods from proven socialization protocols. We believe that the early enrichment and socialization exercises we perform at Red Spring Farm helps your pup learn communication skills that improves their trainability and confidence! We take pictures often and post new photos on our website weekly. We try to take high quality photos of each pup during each photo session. Our pups grow up on Life's Abundance All Life Stages kibble, and this is our recommended diet.
Our pups are de-wormed at 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks. Each puppy gets a veterinarian exam and vet-administered vaccines between 6-7 weeks of age to verify that they are healthy. You pick out which puppy is yours the Saturday after their vet exam, and they are ready to join your family one week later between 7-8 weeks of age. We microchip AND register that chip for the lifetime of your dog as part of our puppy package.
Our pups will go home with a contract, our 2 year congenital health guarantee, a lifetime genetic health guarantee, 30 Days of FREE pet insurance through Trupanion, vaccine records, a microchip information sheet (we pay for lifetime registration of our microchip), a blanket that smells like home, a toy that smells like home, and samples of Life's Abundance treats and Life's Abundance Shampoo. If you choose not to feed our recommended diet, we will also send a transition baggie of food.
Price of a Red Spring Farm Puppy
Our Goldendoodle, Australian Labradoodle, and Double Doodle puppies are $3000.
Remember, we offer a Training Refund of $100 for pups who accomplish Canine Good Citizen or Therapy Dog International training, just send us a photo of the dog and handler holding the certificate.
Filling out an application helps us help us get to know you and determine exactly what you are looking for. After you submit an application, you will receive an email response within 24 hours. If you would prefer a phone response, please specify this in the application with the best time for us to reach you. If it seems like a good fit for both parties, how we proceed depends on whether or not the litter you are interested in has been born yet...
If you are interested in an Available Litter that is already born: Be sure that you are comfortable taking any pup in the litter that will be available by the time your potential reservation spot is reached on selection day. If so, then we will accept a $200 nonrefundable deposit to reserve that spot.
If you are interested in an Upcoming Litter that is not yet born: Once a dog has been bred, we take about 5 deposits towards that litter prior to delivery. You may place a $200 nonrefundable deposit to reserve a spot on her reservation list. If a dog does not get pregnant or has a small litter, you can transfer your deposit to an available or upcoming litter, or put it towards a future litter. Once the mother of your chosen litter has given birth, we will post the color, gender, and estimated coat types of the puppies. If there is a chance you may not get the color, coat, or gender that you want from that litter (remember, you may not have first pick) then you must contact us within 3 days and ask to transfer your deposit to an available or upcoming litter, or put it towards a future litter. After 3 days you are committing to that litter, and your deposit is no longer transferable. This means that, if you decide not to purchase a pup from that litter, your deposit will go toward the time we spent communicating with you and will spend re-reserving that spot.
If you are hoping for a puppy further in the future than what we have on our litter list, we will happily pre-approved your application, but we do not accept deposits until the dog is bred. We will try to remind you, but ultimately it is your responsibility to keep an eye on our upcoming litters list and contact us when the litter you like is posted.
The total purchase price of your puppy after your deposit ($2800) must be paid in full before you take your puppy home. We only accept cash or check for the final payment. If you are paying via check, we must receive the check at least 7 days prior to puppy take home day. Cash is the only method of payment accepted at the time of pickup.
Overview Of Process: 1) Submit an application! 2) Choose a litter list and reserve a spot with $200 nonrefundable deposit. 3) Once puppies are born, contact us within 3 days if you may not get the pup you want so you can transfer to a future list. Once you commit, your deposit is no longer transferable. 4) Marking important days (like puppy selection day and puppy pickup day) in your calendar! 5) Remember, we only accept cash or check for the final payment. If you wish to pay via check, the full balance of the pup is due (must be in our hand) at least 7 business days prior to puppy take home day! Cash is accepted the day that you take your puppy home. We do not allow puppies to go home until they are paid for in full.
Please remember, we do our best, but we can never guarantee:
How many pups will be born in a given litter
A specific color, gender, or coat type will be born
100% non-shedding/"hypoallergenic" pups (there is no such thing)!
Visitation Policy & Puppy Selections
We understand that you want to know where you puppy comes from and the environment it is raised in. We would love to have a transparent, open door policy where you could visit any time you would like. Unfortunately, due to recent outbreaks of parvo and canine respiratory illnesses, this is simply not safe for the puppies in our care. We now limit the number of visitors in our home, only allowing deposit holders to come on take home day only. In lieu of in-person visits, we hope to provide you with the next best thing. We provide our families with full access to a live-stream camera of our litters. You get to see the good and bad with us (it can be a messy job), and you will get to know each puppy in depth. We think this beats a one hour visit!
Puppy selections are done over the phone using the information, photos, videos, vet visit, and temperament testing provided on that litter's page. Selections take place 1 week before puppies are scheduled to go home, the date is posted on the litter page from day one. On the final Pupdate, your family will be allotted a time slot to make your selection. If you are not available the day of puppy selections, contact us in advance so that we can make other arrangements. If you miss your selection appointment, this will result in your name being moved to the bottom of the reservation list, this date is posted well in advance on the litter page and it is your responsibility to reach out to us with your decision. If you want to be safe, send us a list of the pups, from your top pick to your last pick, so that we can refer to this if needed.
Take Home Day!
Take Home Day is an exciting time for everyone! It is also a VERY busy day for us at Red Spring Farm. After puppies are born, we will schedule their Saturday take home day, which is the closest Saturday to their "8 week birthday". Typically, this is done at 11AM as a group (so fun)!
For those who are coming to our home,PLEASE do not be early, and please do not be late! If you arrive early, you are welcome to wait in our driveway for your appointment time. If you are late, we may not be able to go over our puppy packet while you are here. If you are very late, you may have to reschedule your puppy pick up for a later date. Failure to pick up your puppy within a reasonable time frame will result in the forfeit of all deposits/payments and the puppy will be rehomed.
We are not professional trainers and we do not offer any sort of boarding service.
We are super busy raising puppies here at Red Spring Farm, and cannot leave our dogs here to delivery your puppy! Families must drive to our home OR fly to our nearest airport (Piedmont Triad International, GSO).
DRIVING HOME: If you are within a 4 hour drive of our home, we encourage you to drive to pick up your puppy. If your drive is between 4 and 6 hours, we encourage you to make sure to bring a helping hand! For the drive home, make sure that you have a Life's Abundance Porky Puff or Bully Stick to keep your pup occupied, a baggie of Life's Abundance Puppy Kibble (just in case), a safe place in the car designated for the pup to travel, a clean towel or bed for the puppy to lay down on, cleaning supplies (for the puppies that get a little car sick), a harness and leash for potty breaks, and travel-safe containers for water. If you have an exceptionally long drive (6+ hours), we encourage you to look into flights to see if carry-on shipping is an option for you.
FLYING HOME: If you are flying, we will schedule to meet you at the airport with your puppy - our airport is Piedmont Triad International, GSO. We can advise you on how to bring your puppy home as carry-on when flying and we encourage those who have a 8+ hour drive to fly home with your puppy instead, as this makes the trip less lengthy. Carry-on shipping allows the puppy to stay with you and fly safely under the seat in front of you during the flight home. You are their caregiver the entire trip, and they are never left alone. We refuse to ship our puppies via cargo, which is when the puppy is crated and alone for the duration of the flight, often without food or water. This is stressful for the puppy and can lead to dehydration... not to mention that it is not a good way to introduce the puppy to your family and a crate!
*If you are flying, your pick up date will be different than the normal pick-up day, as we will be meeting you at the airport! MAKE SURE to discuss your travel plans with us PRIOR to booking to make sure that we can accommodate you.
