Puppy Temperament Testing
Just like every child and every person is different the same thing applies to puppies. As dedicated Australian Labradoodle Breeders we pride ourselves in making sure our puppies have the best start possible. You can watch our puppies live on our puppy camera from a newborn to 8 weeks old. This gives you complete insight on how your puppies are raised, Puppy Temperament Testing is one of the last pieces of the puzzle.
We got together with Judy from Ripleys Labradoodles to film a recent Temperament testing session,
by working together we hope to be able to produce puppies with outstanding Temperaments.
We have puppy picks at the weekend between 6-7 weeks old. Depending on when we feel that they are ready, and they have had their temperament testing.
It can vary between litters. By 6-7 weeks of age the puppies have developed a really great sense of self awareness. They are confident and are used to our house, children, and our other adult dogs. They can eat, drink, play and fight with their siblings.
In a litter of puppies, we always have confident playful puppies that are more dominant, these puppies are perfect for families with children. Confidence at 6 weeks old will continue to grow and the energy of having children in a busy house will keep your puppies mind active.
We try to place quieter, calmer & cuddly puppies with families that have older children or that are retired. A calmer puppy would do well with an older household as they will enjoy the simple things, like long cuddles on the sofa. They would not be able to keep up with a busy family that wants to play all day.
This is why we invite you and your children to visit when we have puppy picks.
If you are unable to visit to pick in person, we can allocate you a puppy based on what you have told us or we can try to facetime so you can pick via video.
You will only get to choose from suitable puppies, not a whole litter. This will be based on the information that you have provided us.
