Frequently Asked Questions

 Q. Why is my pup already de-sexed before leaving the breeder?


A. For the benefit of the Australian Labradoodle breed, breeding dogs are selected by health and temperament. Thousands of dollars are invested by each breeder, into sourcing and testing the right breeding dogs. Not all dogs can be or should be breeding dogs.  Early desexing also prevents accidental pregnancies and reduces the number of dogs that end up in shelters. 


Q. Will you sell a pup that isn't de-sexed?

A. I will only sell breeding quality pups to ALA members. 


Q. I have strong views against EAD, will you sell a pup on a desexing contract?

A. Although I respect you have your views on this topic, EAD isn’t negotiable. All pet pups are sold desexed.   This  is  a  requirement of  all  ALA  Members.  For  more  information on  this :

For your information, I have also  attached a link from an RSPCA Research Report on EAD.

Q. Why do you choose our puppy for us?

A. The right puppy is chosen for each buyer, based on the information you have provided on your application form. This is why it is important you are honest and give as much information as possible. Pups are chosen to match their temperament with the lifestyle of the buyer. 


Q. Can I pick the colour?

A. No and Yes. As a breeder, my focus is health and temperament. By all means when filling out your application write down any colour preferences you have and if possible it will be matched. If you're not willing to compromise on colour you may have to wait an unknown time. It’s also important to know, Australian Labradoodles can change colour as they grow and the colour they are when they are born may not be the same colour they are as an adult dog.


Q. What is the puppy buying process?

A. Please refer to The Process page.


Q. Can I meet my puppy before I take it home?

A.  Yes, once pups have had their first vaccinations and they have been allocated, you are welcome to come and meet your pup.


Q. Can I meet my pups parents?

A. You will able to me one parent. Mum. As Kings Labradoodles currently only have females, dads will belong to other breeders, therefore, won't be around when you visit. But information on dad, and a photograph will be available for you to see.


Q. What does it mean to grade an Australian Labradoodle?

A. Australian Labradoodles are graded according to how far away they are from the original pairing.  The link below can help explain this.

Q. How much do your pups cost?

Q. Does Kings Labradoodles sell therapy dogs?

A. Kings Labradoodles is a Pet Breeder. All breeding dogs are selected for great temperaments, but this does not guarantee they are suitable therapy dogs. If you are seeking a therapy dog, I recommend you seek advice from a qualified therapy dog trainer. I am happy to work in consultation with the trainer to select a suitable pup from the available litter. This will be at the buyers expense.
