Care of our puppies All of our miniature golden doodle puppies are hand-raised by our family, just off of the kitchen in a custom made whelping box. Throughout the day, the puppies experience the normal noises and activities of life in and around the kitchen and are handled and loved all day long by our four home-schooled children. After the puppies are around 5 days old, we begin using Early Neurological Stimulation to help advance their development. Extensive research has shown five key benefits to early handling and stimulation, which do not occur naturally at this stage of life. These benefits are listed below: 1. Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate) 2. Stronger heart beats 3. Stronger adrenal glands 4. More tolerance to stress 5. Greater resistance to disease.
This early stimulation, along with handling, socialization and a highly enriched environment help the puppies transition easily to their new families with less stress. This makes for a well adapted puppy who can transition easily from one situation to another with confidence. We have seen with our previous litters and heard from our customers about what an incredible difference this personal attention makes! None of our mother dogs are living in a kennel situation. Each and every Bella Mini Doodles "mama" is in her own guardian home, where she is adored by her guardian family. Most breeding dogs spend their lives in kennels or cages in someones basement, barn or garage. Our dams live their lives in the best possible homes and are a beloved part of a family...and we treat their puppies as family also. Bella Mini Doodles puppies spend their first 8-weeks receiving constant love from our family and learn from their mothers who are calm, happy dogs. They follow cues from their mom that life is secure, calm, and happy. The foundation we provide in our home takes much more effort and is harder for us but produces confident, loving, calm, wonderful puppies that will be a blessing for you and your family for many, many years to come! I hear all the time from my customers how they adore their puppies because they have an incredible personality which can only develop from the foundation that we give them of love and security! When I see how wonderful our puppies turn out it makes all the extra work that goes into their constant love and care worth every minute!
Health Our dams come from five generations of good OFA hips and clear eyes and hearts. Although we have addressed all health concerns and followed responsible breeding practices, there is still the rare possibility that a health problem may arise. We offer a two-year genetic guarantee against any genetic defect that should never, but may, arise. My health guarantee is straight forward and does not include any requirements that demand the dog be on an expensive supplement for my guarantee to be valid. I would want someone to honor their commitment to me whether I gave my dog vitamins or not, and that is what I will do for you. The puppies will come with their first shot, de-worming, and will have a Vet Certificate of Health. All of our puppies go home well on their way to being potty trained and will come when called. They will be some of the world's most beloved puppies, having been truly hand raised in our home for the entire whelping period with a mother that is a happy, adored pet. This calm happy spirit transfers from our mother dogs to their puppies, creating calm, loving, happy, healthy puppies!
Adoption fee The adoption fee of Bella Mini Doodles Babies is $3200 for the mini golden doodles 30-40lbs, $3200 for the petite mini golden doodles 20-30lbs, and $3600 for the micro-petite mini golden doodles under 20lbs. Our micros are more expensive because there are only a few puppies per litter. We only breed a true micro to a true micro which means a small litter of puppies. However, as result of our careful breeding practices, our puppies are well portioned and are a consistent size. In addition we are not selling you a puppy that is mostly poodle. Our puppies are bred to have as close to a half and half mix as possible. This is much harder to do and doing it right means only a few puppies per litter. Our micros are NOT achieved by continuing to mix in more and more toy poodle. Our puppies maintain great retriever traits, even at this small size including beautiful boxy heads and noses, long ears, almond shaped eyes, wavy coats and most importantly, incredible retriever personalities! My year long search for a micro stud from outside lines has shown me how rare it is to find a micro mini doodle with retriever traits!
Puppy pick out and pick up days are always joyfully anticipated events! We place people on our waiting lists based on the order in which we receive their $300 deposit. A deposit will be accepted after a phone interview. In the event that a puppy is not available we will refund your deposit. There are many pick up options. Customers are always welcome to come directly to our home but we would be happy to meet you at the Rochester International Airport with the puppy or pick you up from the airport and bring you to our home, if you prefer. We would consider delivering the puppy to you for an agreed upon delivery fee. For our Albany, NYC and NJ area customers we already have a delivery service in place. Bella Mini Doodles is located in the village of Spencerport, N.Y. which is just outside of Rochester.
