Pricing and PoliciesOur Guarantees and the Adoption Process
Puppy Patch Guarantee
All our breeding dogs are or will be health tested according to the AALA breeding standards or equivalent to. These tests include:
- Hips and Elbows – OFA
- Cardiac- Repro veterinary check
- Improper Coat
- PRA, Vwd, either by test or parentage
All of our breeding dogs live in a loving home, rather than in a kennel. Some of our dogs live in Guardian Homes, whose owners raise and love our dogs during their breeding careers. After the dog is retired, the Guardian Home becomes its “forever home”.
All our breeding dogs and puppies have received the best of care, including excellent food, a ton of attention, proper exercise, and probably the warmest spot at the foot of the bed!
Each of our puppies has been exposed to young children and other dogs. I like to introduce them to a variety of different thing to better prepare them for their forever home. This also helps me to determine which puppy is best suited for you and your family. To help me place the puppy with the owner/family I look at the puppies personality, whether he is out-going or calm, coat type, colour, and size.
Each of our puppies comes to you having slept in a crate at night for at least one week, and having been introduced to the basic concepts of potty training (clean environment, outside to potty in the morning, before and after naps, and at bedtime).
All of our Puppy Patch puppies will come to you with the following:
- Complete record of 1st vaccination, health care check-up and periodic routine worming
- Microchip at 7.5 weeks old
- 30 days health insurance
- Quart size bag of food
- A home made “Puppy Patch” blanket that will have litter mates and moms scent
- A few toys
- Puppy Patch Collar and Leash
- Two year health guarantee
- Four generation pedigree
- And most importantly – A lifetime support for the life of your puppy!!

Puppy Patch Adoption Process and Price
If you are interested in purchasing an Australian Labradoodle/Goldendoodle or Bernadoodle puppy from Puppy Patch, please fill out our application. After your puppy application is approved, please submit a non-refundable deposit of $500.
Once your litter is born, I ask for an additional $500. Both the deposit of $500 and the $500 given at the time of puppy birth will be deducted from the final purchase price of $2,650, which is due when your puppy is 6 weeks of age. The applicable 5% GST will be applied to the final payment at 6 weeks of age. When your payment is received, you enter into a binding contract with Puppy Patch Labradoodles which will spell out all agreements between seller and buyer, and will provide for the protection of the buyer, seller, and the puppy.
The cost for my Doodles is $2,650; either Australian Labradoodle, Goldendoodle or Bernadoodle.
Methods of Payment: We accept E-Transfers, or money order, payable to Annette Cameron.
Located in Kelowna, British Columbia, we are within easy driving distance of BC and Alberta. We are able to ship puppies throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia. However, for Europe and Asia we prefer to send the puppy in cabin as carry on. Shipping costs are not included in our prices. Please contact us for more information about flying your puppy home. We bill the actual transportation costs, which will include transportation to and from the airport, vet certified health certificate, other necessary documentation, airline approved crate (in which the puppy will have started its crate training), food, water and Puppy Patch blanket, toy, leash and collar.
Our Puppy Allocation Process
By 7 weeks, puppies are matched with their families based on preferences written on your application, emails and photos exchanged, and telephone conversations. Puppies are matched in the order that deposits are received.
Of course, we want the best fit for our puppies and your family, occasionally, we may need to forego immediate placement of a puppy if we feel there is not a good match for you in the current litter. On the other hand, if the timing isn’t right for you and your situation, you may request your deposit be moved to a different litter. Although rare, we also reserve the right to refund deposits if for any reason we are not comfortable placing a puppy with your family. We require first rights to purchase a dog back if for some reason you are unable to keep the dog.
Puppy Patch Labradoodles has the right to retain any puppy for its breeding program, and so it may be that not all puppies in a litter are available as pets. At 7.5 weeks, puppies are microchipped. Puppies are ready to go to their forever homes at 8 weeks, after a checkup at our veterinarian’s office and veterinarian health certificate, if flying. You are always welcome to email me at email@example.com or call at 250-640-1844 to ask questions about the breed, puppy care, our breeding program and about how we select puppies for our adopting families.
