Please check out our Puppy Availability page to see any puppies that are ready to join their new families or for upcoming litters which you may place a reservation on.
Once your adoption application has been approved and we have received your initial deposit, we would love to have you out for a meet-and-greet as long as your puppy is of an appropriate age.
At Archview Labradoodles, we pride ourselves on helping put together the perfect match each time. We allocate puppies based off of their temperament and how the puppy will fit the lifestyle of their future family. You can indicate a gender, color or size preference in your application, but as each litter is unique we are unable to guarantee that your preferences will be met in a particular litter.
Archview Labradoodles is a home-based operation. Each of our dogs lives in a loving home, whether with us or one of our excellent guardian families. Each litter is born in one of our bedrooms and they remain there for three weeks. At four weeks of age, puppies move to larger areas with toys and a potty station.
Socialization is a big part of our process at Archview Labradoodles. You can read more about our socialization process and our tips and tricks for continuing to socialize your puppy in your home here.
Australian Labradoodles are rich with history dating back to 1989. There are many reasons to select an Australian Labradoodle such as their being allergy-friendly and the fact that the ALAA requires thorough genetic testing of all of their registered breeding stock. You can read about many of the benefits of purchasing an Australian Labradoodle on our blog.
All of our puppies that are deemed pet-quality puppies are spayed or neutered prior to leaving for their new families. Occasionally we offer breeding-quality puppies for sale to the public. Price will vary depending on their pedigree, age, etc., but they are usually around $9,000.
We have been breeding Australian Labradoodles for eight years now! You can read all about our history and why we were moved to begin breeding these special dogs on our Biography page.
Taking care of our dogs and puppies is our full-time job! We are proud to share this special experience with our children who also pitch in with the workload that comes with running a high-quality breeding operation. We are very blessed to have a great team of folks around us such as a phenomenal photographer, an administrative assistant and many more.
We do have a handful of breeding dogs who live in our home with us as well as a few dogs who have retired from our breeding program. Most of our dogs live in approved Guardian homes.
We are located in Illinois just 15 minutes from downtown St. Louis and a short 30 minute drive from the Lambert airport.
The majority of our breeding dogs live in Guardian homes and retire with their Guardian families once we have opted to retire them. It is very uncommon that we rehome retired breeding dogs outside of their Guardian homes.
Our puppies are exposed to crate training as early as four weeks of age. While they are not 100% crate trained when they go home with you, they have become very familiar with the concept of crate training which makes the transition period for you much smoother. We explained how we acclimate our puppies to the concept of crate training and what you should do to continue their education in this blog.
We understand that busy schedules sometimes make it difficult to pick your puppy up on their pickup date. We are able to keep your new puppy for a lengthened period of time for an additional $30 a day.
There is no such thing as a hypoallergenic dog. While our dogs may not be hypoallergenic, they are low to no shed and are allergy friendly. If you have a severe allergy to canine saliva, we encourage you to visit with our dogs prior to adopting one to make sure they are a good fit for your family.
Each individual puppy is unique and therefore we are neutral when it comes to males versus females. All of our puppies are very loving, but some do have more docile temperaments while others are more playful. These personality traits are not specific to one gender.
Absolutely! Several of our puppies have gone on to have successful careers as therapy or service dogs. Australian Labradoodles are very intelligent and eager to please, making them great candidates for training purposes.
