All deposits are to be in the form of a NON-REFUNDABLE certified check/money order in the amount of $500 made out to AMY LINDGREN. You can also pay by using the PAYPAL buttons below. If using PAYPAL, there are additional charges based on fees we are charged by PAYPAL. Once your application is received and approved and your deposit is received, the money will be used to hold your spot for a puppy based on what you are looking for. The remaining balance of $2300 or the full payment is due when the puppy is six weeks to hold your spot on the current list.
IMPORTANT: If after you have sent in your deposit you choose not to go through with your plans to purchase a puppy from Signature Labradoodles, the deposit money will NOT be refunded. We do this because potential new customers sometimes make decisions to adopt puppies from other breeders if our slots are pre sold. Backing out of a sale at the last minute can cost us the sale of a puppy and additional advertising costs to find a new home for a puppy we thought was already placed. If you cannot take a puppy for any reason in your original slot, we will help you to find another litter of puppies within the next 2 years to utilize the deposit. After that time, your spot and deposit will be forfeited.
We ask that final payments for a reserved puppy are made at 6 weeks of age. This allows us to make the final decisions for our puppy picks knowing that the puppy has been paid for in full. This also gives time for checks to clear. Once again, payment can be made by a certified check/money order or through PAYPAL.
We charge a $400 flat rate for our shipping costs for most of our customers. This cost covers the airfare, shipping crate, the required Vet check, and our time driving and expense bringing the puppy to the airport. We do not look to make a profit with this charge and in fact we usually lose money. We are happy to provide this service, though, and look for the most direct flights possible.
All Payments that are mailed should be made out to and sent to:
The Australian Labradoodle Association of America (ALAA) protects the welfare of the Labradoodle and Australian Labradoodle breeds. The organization promotes responsible dog companionship by cataloguing helpful information about the breeds and by offering networking services to breeders and owners. As a leader in this effort, we are working to make a difference. The ALAA manages the largest database of Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles in the world, with vital statistics for nearly 20,000 dogs and ancestral information for more than 25,000 dogs. Our membership grows daily, and we invite you to join us as we help to write the history of these incredible breeds.
Silver Paw Standards include hip and elbow clearances required of all member breeders, an eye exam clearance from a certified ophthalmologist must be submitted for all dogs in a breeder’s program in order to be awarded the Silver Paw logo. A breeder must re-test and resubmit clearance to retain the Silver Paw logo. Breeders must re-test each breeding age dog every 18 months and submit clearances to retain the Silver Paw.
Since 2001, owners have found this site and placed their stories on it. We decided then as a group that we would only list Goldendoodle and Labradoodle breeders who met certain criteria. We wanted breeders who not only health tested, we looked for breeders who backed their puppies with owner-friendly health warranties and who earned a reputation for providing healthy puppies and treating people with professionalism. The breeders who are awarded this logo are tried and true, and come highly recommended by the owners of their dogs.
