PUPPY DEPOSIT – $500.00
Deposits are required to reserve a spot on a reservation list and we will accept personal check or PAYPAL for the deposit payment. Final puppy fee balance may only be made by wire transfer. Paypal link for deposit is below. PLEASE NOTE*** Deposits are refundable ONLY if we are unable to provide you with a puppy that suits what you have indicated wanting and needing within a year of submission of your application. If you are on a reservation list for a specific dog and they do not have what you’ve indicated wanting, then you will be moved to the next available reservation list. We cannot custom order puppies for what every person wants and we have to wait and see what is produced in each litter.

HOW THE SPRING CREEK PROCESS WORKS
- Submit an application and let us know which litter or litters interest you as well as all the things you want with color, coat, gender, size, temperament, etc.
- We review all your information and will communicate with you about what you are looking for to ensure we understand your wishes and desires for a puppy completely. All communication takes place via email so we have a paper trail of details to refer to later. Please read the information on requesting a phone call on our contact page.
- Once we’ve approved your application, you will be asked to send a deposit to reserve a puppy from the litter you are interested in.
- Watch the website availability page for updates. As girls are bred and we have that information available, we will put the expected birth date on that page. We ask that you check this page instead of emailing us to ask if a litter has been bred as the information will be posted as soon as it is available.
- As you wait for the litter to be bred and born, please review the information on our website to prepare for your puppy. We also have a full puppy preparation document that will be emailed to you with the puppy birth announcement, but if you’d like this sooner let us know and we will send that to you right away.
- Once the litter is born, we will email out a birth announcement, picture, and information within 48 hours of the birth of the litter.
- Every two week birth date we will email out new pictures and information.
- We will do full assessments of the litter and when puppies are 6 weeks of age we will send each family information on the puppy or puppies in the litter that suite all the criteria they are looking for, and then we will determine which puppy is the best option for your family. For more information on the assessment and matching process, we have information fully explaining how the process works and can email that to you at any time.
- Visiting the litter you are receiving a puppy from can be arranged after the first vaccination has been given to the puppies. First vaccinations are at 7 weeks.
- Spring Creek reserves the right to select two puppies from every litter as potential breeding dogs for our program. Since our dogs are not career breeders and only have two or three litters, it is necessary for us to retain for the next generation of Spring Creek Labradoodle puppies.
- By 7 weeks of age the final payment for puppy is due and the signed health/warranty/contract.
- Puppies are ready for pick up after they are 8 weeks of age, and if we are shipping to you that date will be scheduled when pups are born and they will be sent between 8 and 9 weeks of age. We will not hold puppies past the 9 week birth date, and we only schedule to travel to the international airport one time for each litter.
THE FOLLOWING ARE PROVIDED WHEN ADOPTING A PUPPY
Worming treatments at the appropriate age.
- Veterinary health exam at 7 weeks of age.
First vaccination at 7-8 weeks

IMPORTANT BOOKS TO READ BEFORE ADOPTING A PUPPY
We ask that every family purchasing an Australian Labradoodle puppy from us read two very helpful and important books. They will make a tremendous difference in the adjustment and assimilation of a puppy into your home. Many people have a false idea of how they should handle dogs, or what they respond to. Most dog issues are really issues with people, not with the dogs. Please read:
