The Oopsie Doodles of NC Process
Prior to breeding:
All of our dogs are health tested for over 130 possible genetic issues through Embark. We also have OFA testing on all of our parents. We follow Good Dog and Golden Doodle of North America health standards. We use our geneticist to help predict color combinations when they are bred. Our pups are fed high quality food from pawTree and get regular play and exercise with our family.
Families who have made a reservation
are notified when the dog is bred. We
then provide follow up information once
pregnancy is confirmed through our vet.
Families who have made a reservation are notified once the litter has arrived. At that point you will receive the following updates
and photos according to our timeline.
Pups are taken to the vet for first check
up and to have dew claws removed.
After this visit, we will begin contacting families to make selections in order of reservations. (We ask that you keep a close eye on our social media and website so you know what puppy you and your family might be interested in selecting). Please be prepared make your choice quickly once contacted so that other families may make their decision as well. While we do not allow in-person visits prior to puppy's 6 week shots, we are happy to schedule video chats to help assist you in choosing your new family member. We also will begin the process of biosensory training by regularly manipulating puppy's paws, legs and body when puppies turn 1 week old. Photos updated on website and on social media (facebook and instagram).
We will send you a survey to assess
your top priorities with your new
pup. We’ll use the responses to
help you understand your new pup
and assist you in preparing to train the newest family member once they arrive at home.
(This survey will be sent via the email you provide when you make
your reservation. We ask that you submit your survey responses within 72 hours.)
Pups get play time, continue biosensory training
and are introduced to food. They will be given puppy turf pads in their kennel to begin to associate where to go to the bathroom. As they get into week 5, they are introduced to the outside (weather permitting) for potty training.
Pups go to the vet for their second visit for shots and check-up. After this appointment, your puppy will receive temperament testing from an independent trainer. This temperament testing uses Volhardt’s scale and checks for components such as sensitivity to touch, sight and sound; resistance; and ability to follow. After temperament testing is completed, we compile that information to inform families of their new puppy's personality. Families can use information gathered from temperament testing to better prepare for training their puppy.
