Upnorth’s Mission

I require a spay/neuter contract on any puppy I sell. My main objective is to provide quality ‘doodles’ to loving homes, however if you are looking for breeding stock, that entails a different contract. Please let me know what you are looking for. As with anything you purchase, the old adage “You get what you pay for” rings true. Yes there are Labradoodles out there for $1000 or less but did the owners do DNA testing or OFA certification? Do their puppies have Australian bloodlines? Do they offer a health guarantee? Do they welcome anyone at anytime to come and see where the puppies are born and raised? Do they have references? These are questions that need to be asked as well. I will happily answer any & all questions. I look forward to your inquiries. Patrice Higgins

Our personal guarantee to you is that every puppy that comes from our home will be socialized, well loved, health guaranteed, and guaranteed against genetic defects for a period of two years from the date of birth.

All puppies will have first shot, wormed, and will be accompanied by a veterinary health certificate if being shipped by air.

I require a minimum deposit of $300 to reserve a puppy, with the balance being due before the puppy is 7 weeks of age. Most puppies are picked up by 8 weeks of age, but if you need me to keep your puppy for a longer period, I will be happy to do so for a fee of $20 per day (I charge $30 per day to board older pups or full grown dogs)

You have one week after you pick up your puppy to have him/her checked by your veterinarian. If any health issues are found you have the option of a full refund of purchase price or another puppy from the same litter or subsequent litter of equal value provided you return the original puppy and provide documentation by a licensed Veterinarian.

We can predict the size of your puppy but no guarantees are made regarding the size. Remember, all Labradoodles originate from full size Labrador Retrievers and some will be bigger than others even when bred to a tiny poodle.

Labradoodle (Labradoodle Origin – LO) – This term describes the dogs above or dogs that have exclusively Labrador and Poodle Parent Breeds in their background. Australian Labradoodle (AL) – a dog made up of six different breeds : Labrador Retriever, Poodle, Irish Water Spaniel, Curley Coat Retriever, American Cocker Spaniel, and English Cocker Spaniel. These breeds were selected over many years by researchers in Australia to develop specific traits and qualities. These dogs must have over three generations of AL-to-AL in their pedigree to be considered an Australian Labradoodle.
Multi-generation = This can be an F3. Italso is referred to as an Australian Labradoodle Foundation Dog (ALF) – This term describes dogs that have both the Labradoodle Origin (LO) and an Australian Labradoodle (AL) Parent Breed in their heritage.

A Few Interesting Notes about the Labradoodle:
1. The combination of breeds makes for a healthier dog in what is called “Hybrid Vigor.” In the Labradoodle you have a dog who is coming from different genetic pools, so to speak. The weaknesses of a particular breed are lessened because of this.
2. They come from two dogs that rate in the top 5% in intelligence rating. They are easily trained. Many suggest you train it right away, or it will be training you. They have been rated as a good candidate for therapy dogs and in agility competitions.
3. Labradoodles’ coats vary. First cross, or F1 Labradoodles have a very high percentage of shedding coats. There is well over a 50% probability that they will shed. Back cross, or F1-B Labradoodles, tend to be lighter shedding because of the higher percentage of poodle in their genes. Multi-generation Labradoodles tend to be the best for people with allergies or someone who is looking for a non-shedding dog. We breed MULTI-GENERATION LABRADOODLES.

Labradoodles come in a variety of colors and coat types. They can be black, silver, brown, lighter brown, shades of cream and red. Their coats can be curly or wavy, fleecy or more straight.
Labradoodles love to play! They need to have some time outside to romp. They also love to be around their human family. They are adaptable to most family situations. They love kids and adults who treat them with respect and will have every family member glad to have them in their family.
