Thank you for your interest in welcoming a Lily Hill Australian Labradoodle to your family. The waiting list for 2024 is now open!
All puppies are £2800, regardless of colour or gender. It is requested that all prospective families be open to colour and gender of puppies - having a preference is absolutely fine and will be taken into account, but if either of these things are non negotiable, I am not the right breeder for you. My focus is to support new owners in choosing a puppy that is most likely to be suited to their home environment and lifestyle, to set both the humans and puppy up for success.
* Please note: All pet puppies are sold on a strict spay/neuter contractual condition. This is non negotiable, and is a stipulation of membership to WALA.
Waiting List Screening
If you are interested in a Lily Hill Australian Labradoodle puppy, the first step is to fill in my application form or send an enquiry email. We will have a follow up call to go through your responses and for you to get a feel for me to decide if I am the right breeder for you (however, if accessibility is a concern I am more than happy to communicate via email).
Getting on the Waiting List
Following the completion of your application form and our conversation, if both you and I feel that one of my puppies will be the right fit for your home and lifestyle, you will be invited to join the waiting list. In order to join, a non-refundable holding fee of £500 is required to secure your spot. A non-refundable holding fee policy is operated in order to confirm your commitment, and my promise of a puppy to you.
When Puppies are Born
When a litter has been safely delivered, depending on your place in the waiting list you will be sent an update and photos of the puppies and I will ask that you respond within 48 hours to confirm you are able to welcome a puppy into your home at the time they will be ready to leave. If you confirm, the next installment of £500 is requested.
When the puppies are between 5 and 6 weeks old, you will be invited to come and meet the litter along with mum to play and interact with them all. Once the visit is complete, I will send you some follow up questions to give me a fully up to date picture of your home and lifestyle. Once these have all been received, I will then allocate each puppy to their forever family based on temperament and the type of families the puppies will be most likely to thrive in. Remember: you will never have 'better' or 'worse' puppies in a litter, just those that are suited to certain lifestyles over others. It is my role as their breeder and guardian to do everything I can to set them up for success.
Go home and beyond
A week before the puppies' 'Gotcha!' day the final balance of £1800 will be due. Weekly check ins over the first month after bringing your puppy home can be arranged (I will always be on hand to answer questions and queries as and when they arise outside of this) and I would love to be sent updates as and when you are able to! As an ethical breeder committed to supporting you for the entirety of your dogs life, I will only ever be a phone call or text message away.
Please note: once you have placed your non refundable holding fee, you will hold your position on the waiting list for 18 months. If by the end of this period you have passed on 2 or more litters offered to you based on your requirements, you will lose your position on the waiting list and forfeit your holding fee. Alternative arrangements will be at the discretion of myself.
