How Do I Reserve a Puppy?
To be next in line to choose a puppy from our upcoming litter, please sign up here. This will allow you to be notified once we have our next pregnant mama confirmed. **Please note, we do not have a waiting list. Once registration opens via Instagram, it will be first-come, first serve.** We will then go through a registration process, notifying everyone via a post on Instagram. If you’re then still interested, you’ll be able to secure one of our puppies with a $1,000 deposit, which is part of the full price of $6,000 CDN (including tax) for one puppy.
Please be aware it is a final deposit. As we have a lot of interest in our puppies, it is not fair to sell our puppies and then have to change to another family. Thank you for understanding!
What is the full price of a puppy?
The full price for one of our cuddly Mini Golden Doodle puppies is $6,000 CAD, including tax, effective February 1st, 2022.
Once you put down your $1,000 deposit, you are guaranteed a spot in the litter for which you made a deposit. We sell the number of puppies that we believe to be in each litter, but this is of course dependent on the exact amount of puppies in each litter, and sometimes we cannot estimate exactly. After you have made your deposit, we will continue to keep you updated until the puppies arrive.
Your choosing date is around when the puppies are 5 weeks old. This is the day you get to see your puppy and choose which one is for you! On that date please bring or arrange to e-transfer the second installment of $2,500.
The last payment is $2,500 in cash or e-transfer at the time when you pick up the puppy, bringing the total to $6,000. Of course, you can pay in full at any time if this is more convenient for you.
Is the initial deposit refundable should you change your mind?
Yes, 100% of your deposit is refundable should your situation change, or you change your mind up to 5 days after the choosing day.
The choosing day is around when the puppies are 5 weeks old.
What makes your mini Goldendoodles different and special from other breeders?
We love Mini Goldendoodles, and it’s great to see such an increase in demand for this adorable breed.
Our families who adopt love our puppies for the following key reasons:
- Our puppies maintain their teddy bear-like looks as adult dogs too
- They’re small (range between 8-22lbs, but most range fully grown between 10-12lbs)
- They don’t shed so ideal with individuals and families who suffer from allergies
- We’re conveniently located in the heart of Toronto (the Junction/High Park); which makes it ideal for families in Toronto who prefer a local breeder
- We’re an in-home family breeder – This means we do not mass breed, rather we do this because we love it. Our Mini Goldendoodles bring so much love to our home and we love to see the joy our puppies bring to others.
We also believe there are several other reliable and ethical breeders across Ontario and Canada.
Though we can’t vouch for any other breeder specifically, below are some of the things we do at Mini Goldendoodle Puppies that help ensure your puppy is set for a healthy and enjoyable life:
- Puppies are born and raised inside our home (at times in our family room or our bedrooms), and not in an outbuilding, kennel, or “nursery” (which sounds cute, but it’s often a nicer name for a barn/kennel/outbuilding).
- Puppies are raised with ENS (Early Neurological Stimulation) through the Puppy Culture Methods
- Mom is 18+ months before her first litter
- Each one of our mamas is a family pet in a loving and caring home.
- Puppies receive vaccinations and exams by a licensed vet at the 4-week mark and again at the 8-week mark before your take home
- Puppies are socialized early. They are handled and socialized daily by our children, family, and friends after their first vaccination (4-week period).
- Puppies/mamas receive constant 24/7 care; and are never left unattended.
- All of our dogs, including our mamas and their puppies, receive high-quality, premium dog food.
- We screen all families who are looking to adopt; we don’t sell puppies with a click here buy option but ensure our puppies are welcomed in loving homes with the right environment
- We don’t ship puppies.
- We provide lifetime support to our families who adopt from us
What if I miss my viewing appointment?
If you do not come on the appointment date to choose the puppy you want, unfortunately, you do forfeit your place in line as far as choosing one goes – because other people are coming after you for their appointment to choose. In such a case we will choose one for you taking into consideration all the information you have given us about which puppy you would want.
How do I pick up my puppy?
Finally the day for picking up your puppy has come! Normally this happens at 8 weeks old. Throughout the process we will keep you informed of how your puppy is doing, and upon an agreed pickup time, we ask that you (or someone from the family) come personally to pickup your puppy.
Can you ship my puppy?
No for obvious reasons for the safety and well-being of your puppy.
What comes with my purchase of one of your Mini Goldendoodles?
Your Mini Goldendoodle puppy will get a Veterinarian examination, de-worming, and the first round of shots. You will also get your puppy examined by a Veterinarian again at the time of pick up, while you are present, and receive their health documentation up to that point.
You also get 6 weeks of free Pet Insurance for your puppy. The insurance is valid at any Veterinarian Hospital/Clinic across Canada. The insurance kicks in from the day you took your puppy home (typically at 8 weeks old). There’s no obligation for you to continue with the insurance once the 6 weeks run out. However, you do have the option to continue your insurance should you choose with the insurer directly.
Are there returns?
We vet each of our families to ensure they are established, have a good home situation, and have been planning to welcome a puppy into their family. If a family’s situation changes, it is handled in a personal, one-to-one situation, understandably.
Why don’t you have a traditional waiting list like other breeders?
We’re an in-home breeder in the heart of the city of Toronto. Unlike other breeders outside the city, we have a limited number of litters available each year. As a result, our adoption process is different from other breeders as we try our best efforts to facilitate interest from hundreds of families for a handful of available puppies.
A traditional wait list would mean families get locked into one of our future litters and the waiting period could take years; preventing the family from adopting a puppy from another breeder if the opportunity should present itself.
Our current process, though imperfect, does provide a fair and equal opportunity to families interested in one of our puppies.
If demand for our puppies reduces, we will certainly entertain a traditional wait list.
Are Mini Goldendoodle puppies good for those who have allergies (are they hypoallergenic)?
“Hypoallergenic” pretty much refers to something having a small chance of triggering an allergic reaction.
According to the American Kennel Club, no dog is 100% hypoallergenic, but it is possible to “find less-allergenic dog breeds.”
Our particular puppies are great for those who suffer from allergies. Due to the poodle mix, their fur (actually hair) does not shed. As a result, families have found them to be a wonderful pet for people with allergies.
We want you to be as comfortable adopting one of our puppies as we are confident that our puppies will be healthy and happy when we send them home with you.
To date, when we combine our family’s initial Mini Goldendoodle breeding business that started in Vancouver (via Mini Goldendoodle Puppies to Love) and now our litters here in Toronto, Ontario, there have been over 250+ Mini Goldendoodle puppies adopted with no life-threatening or genetic health issues to our puppies.
That is why we have a health promise.
A number of different factors can influence your puppy’s health and well-being, such as nourishment, environment, genetics, and general training and care – we are aware of this and our relationship with you and our puppies goes beyond just the ‘take-home’ date.
We offer a support line with help for training and advice as your puppy enters their next stage of life. Though it is certainly an exciting time of life for everyone, it can come with questions that need answers and support that Google may not provide!
The families who take home our little puppies are given much-needed peace of mind and can relax knowing they’re not alone in training and loving a little puppy.
Each puppy is given specific care and attention every day, with required health reports, up-to-date vaccines, de-worming, and thorough vet checkups.
When you take home your little puppy, we offer a complimentary vet checkup at that time, ensuring you know your puppy is completely healthy and ready to become part of your home for a very long time.
You also get 6 weeks of free Pet Insurance for your puppy. The insurance is valid at any Veterinarian Hospital/Clinic across Canada.
How big will your mini goldendoodle puppy grow?
Our Mini Goldendoodle puppies, when fully grown will range from 8lbs to 22lbs.
From the hundreds of healthy and wonderful puppies we’ve had, our biggest Mini Goldendoodle was 15lbs fully grown. The majority of puppies when fully grown have been around 10 to 12lbs range.
