Helpful Information

  • Can I come see the puppies?
    The Health and saftey of our dogs and puppies is very important to us so we take every precaution to protect them. Puppies do not have fully developed immune systems and are susceptible to life threatening illnesses, like Parvo. Parvo can kill a litter of puppies in a matter of hours. Parvo among others can be carried on clothing such as shoes. For this reason as well as our own safety concerns I do not allow visits.
  • How much is a puppy?
    Our puppies range in price based on a number of factors. Please see our available puppies for more information on pricing.
  • How are your puppies raised?
    All Dood Ranch puppies are given lots of love and attention. All of our puppies are raised with children and around other dogs.
  • How do I make a deposit?
    We Accept Deposits on puppies via Zelle, Venmo, Cash App or Google Pay. Deposits are NON Refundable with only one exception! IF the puppy reserved were to be found to be unhealthy before time of pickup, deposit will be refunded. Deposits will not be refunded for ANY other reason. If a buyer becomes unable to house said puppy for any reason, for instance loss of job, deposit can be transferred to a future litter.
  • What if I don't live in Texas but would love a Dood Ranch pup?
    We offer two ways of getting your pup: 1. Local Pick Up - Pick ups are arranged on a case by case basis. 2. Ground Shipping- As of right now we are no longer offering shipping.
  • Will the puppies be potty trained?
    Beware of anyone claiming to be sending home a puppy ages 8-10 weeks fully potty trained. Puppies simply can not be fully potty trained in that amount of time. Many factors come into play when potty training a puppy. First, when a puppy is taken home they are removed from their comfort zone. New house, new people, in many cases new animals to get use to. It will take time for a puppy to learn the appropriate place to potty at their new house. It will take time for them to settle in and feel comfortable. Second, a puppies bladder is very small when they go home. They simply can not hold their bowels as long as an older puppy or adult dog. Expecting a puppy to hold it for hours while kenneled is absolutely unrealistic. Fully house training/potty training is a new puppy owners responsibility. Its just part of having a new puppy. Be prepared to put work into training. I say this only to be informative, not to be rude in any way. SOOO many people buy puppies and regret it when they realize how much work training is. These breeds are extremely smart but their humans have to be committed to the journey of new puppy ownership to be successful.
  • Do your puppies shed?
    typically F1s DO shed. F1 is a first generation cross. Now F1 Labradoodles will shed more then all the other F1 crosses. F1 Goldendoodles shed a little less then the F1 Labradoodles. my F1 Bernedoodles I find dont shed much at all. Its more like dust bunnies youll find here and there. Now F1bs typically do NOT shed. No dog is guarunteed to be non shedding!
  • When can I pick my puppy up?
    We send our puppies to their new homes between 8-10 weeks.

Other Information

Parasites: For the average person, the idea of having parasites is a pretty scary thought, but in the world of 8 week old puppies, it's really not uncommon. Similar to a toddler bringing everything home from preschool, puppies are going to pick up parasites from any number of sources i.e... from other dogs to the yard to things being tracked into the house by visitors or even their own mothers. Thankfully, the vast majority of parasites aren't serious and are easily treated. However, also like little ones in preschool, puppies pass things from one to another and back again so as long as they're in a group setting, parasites can be difficult to completely eliminate.  Please, understand that we do everything in our power to send home healthy puppies including but not limited to a full litter stool sample exam as well as a veterinarian health check, but even the great lengths that we go to aren't foolproof.  If, by some chance, your vet does find a parasite, we will be happy to reimburse the cost of the medicine that your vet prescribes and we will continue to cover any parasite related costs until we are all comfortable that that issue has been resolved.  We can not be responsible for other testing if we are not aware of it. 

  Your puppy will be due for his/her next vaccination 3 weeks from first vet visit.  PLEASE NOTE: your puppy is not fully vaccinated until all 3 vaccinations are given. Please refrain from taking your puppy in public places where other animals have been, until the puppy has all 3 vaccinations and is at least 12 weeks of age.
Your puppy has been de-wormed, however, please always include a stool sample when taking your new puppy to the vet. Many parasites can only be seen by a vet at certain times of their cycle. We deworm from 2 weeks until 8 weeks.  Some parasites can even surface from change in environments and stress to the puppy.
