*Changed 6/25/20* Pricing All of our puppies are priced as follows: Tuxedos (solids): $1,000 Tri's, bi's, and phantoms: $1,200 Merles: $1,500 *All puppies subject to 7% Iowa sales tax* *Prices subject to change on unreserved puppies* Deposit info We require a $300 non-refundable deposit to hold a puppy, or to secure you place in line to pick from a litter. To make a deposit, you may either use PayPal, ApplePay, cash, or personal check. The remaining amount may be paid in full at any time at or before pick up, using cash, ApplePay, or PayPal. Personal check is also accepted, but would need to be received at least two weeks in advance of pick up so that it has time to clear the bank before puppy is picked up . If you decide to use PayPal, you would need to cover the 3% PayPal fee. The deposit is non- refundable, however if something happens to your puppy while with us, your deposit will either be fully refunded, or applied to another puppy/litter of your choosing. You may place a deposit on a current or future litter at anytime. When you place your deposit, we will ask what you are looking for in a puppy in the area of gender, marking and color. Once you are on our waiting list, you will be among the first to be notified when a new litter is on the way. When a new litter is born, those on the waiting list will receive weekly pictures and updates. Our selection process starts when the puppies are 3 weeks old, at which point we contact the first person on the waiting list. They will have 24 hours let us know which puppy they have selected. We then contact the next person on the waiting list, and so on. Once you have chosen your puppy, you will receive weekly/bi-weekly updates of him/her. If, when it's your turn to choose your puppy, we no longer have available what you are looking for (ex.~you want a female and they are all chosen), your deposit will be moved to another litter or refunded at your request.

Important information to know before placing a deposit
Please consider that a standard Aussiedoodle is a large dog that can mature to around 50-70 pounds. The last thing we want is for you to purchase a puppy from us, and then find out down the road that he/she has grown too big for your home!
Since an Aussiedoodle is little to no shedding, he/she will need to be groomed on a regular basis. Daily brushing is strongly encouraged to reduce mats in their fur. A visit to your groomer every 8 to 12 weeks is necessary as well.
Even though an Aussiedoodle sheds very little, we cannot guarantee that they will be hypoallergenic. If you have allergies to dogs, you need to do your own research on whether or not an Aussiedoodle is right for you. We would also encourage you to come visits some of our pups to see if you have a reaction.
Aussiedoodles are very smart and active dogs. Therefore, they will need lots of exercise. We know just how smart Australian Shepherds can be. Sometimes it's like they're reading our minds! Mixed with the poodle, an Aussiedoodle is a genius breed of a dog. We would encourage you to give your dog jobs and teach them new tricks (regardless of whether you get a puppy from us or not!). Please be sure that you are prepared to give an Aussiedoodle the exercise, time and training they need.
When you get a dog, you need to ask yourself if you are at the right time in your life to get a puppy. Be prepared to give your new puppy the attention it deserves. Getting a dog is a long term commitment, and the first few weeks and months of that time is crucial! Sometimes, just waiting a month or two can make a huge difference! If you want an Aussiedoodle, but you just don't feel like now is the right time, please don't hesitate to get on our deposit list for a future litter.
Please consider the personality you would like in a dog. Too many people look at a cute face, but pay no regard to what that dog's personality will be like. Asking a few questions about temperament and personality now can save a lot of frustration down the road! That being said, please understand that we cannot guarantee a puppy's personality. We can give you an idea based on what we are seeing at the time, and often we get a pretty good feel by 3-8 weeks of age based on how they are responding and interacting with us and their litter mates. However, it is in no way a guarantee! We also feel strongly that training, socializing, and proper interaction works wonderful on all personalities. Please be willing to invest the time, effort and energy your puppy deserves to transform them into a wonderful lifetime friend!
