Cost of a DragonRam Puppy
The price of a DragonRam Labradoodle puppy was raised in July 2017 to $2700 plus 13% HST. This is the first time we have raised our prices since we started breeding in 2009. That cost includes almost $1000 in vet fees that you would otherwise need to pay yourself, as they are for required care including first vaccinations, a general checkup, fecal sample, neutering, and microchipping. So your actual cost for the puppy itself is more like $1700 plus HST.
As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. And while on the surface, that plastic toy from the dollar store might look just as good as the one from Toys R Us, but which one is going to still be in good condition when your kids outgrow it?
The difference might not be so easy to understand with puppies - the pet store Labradoodle is just as cute and fluffy as the one from the registered breeder - but it’s there nonetheless.
If you’re not sure you can believe what I’m going to tell you, this article puts it very well.
The main factor that goes into the cost of a multigenerational Australian Labradoodle is the extensive health screening we (and all the breeders we work with) do on all the dams and studs we breed.
Below you will find information on the types of health screening and health care we do. When you pick up your Labradoodle puppy, you will receive a copy of all the health testing results of the parents. This is our way of showing you that your puppy comes from quality breeding stock and is unlikely to suffer major inherited health problems during its long and fulfilling life with you.
