Want a puppy without the hassle of a puppy? Well one of our started dogs could be the answer for you. Our started dogs come crate trained and with basic obedience skills. With a started dog you can have an enjoyable experience right from the start - no accidents in the house, no jumping up on people or stealing food off the counters.
We also offer a puppy training program gives your puppy a head start in life. During this 8 week program puppies are taught the basic obedience skills necessary to be a wonderful K-9 companion. Training consists of teaching Here, Heel, Sit, Down, Stay, and Kennel, as well as crate training and basic manners. The puppies will complete their DA2PPV vaccinations series during their training so they are able to get out and see the world as soon as you bring them home. The cost of the vaccinations are included in the program. We typically start this program with puppies 8 weeks of age. Your Labradoodle Puppy will be trained until 16 weeks of age before moving to their forever home. The cost of this program is $275 per week.
AVAILABLE STARTED DOGS
Lexi is a 14 month old Australian Labradoodle. She has a gorgeous rich chocolate fleece coat that is so soft and easy to brush. Lexi is a very sweet, sensitive, girl with plenty of drive and is eager to please. She is incredibly smart and can pick up a new trick in just a few minutes. Her favorite time of day is when we are training and she is working with a job. Lexi is completely house broke, loves spending time in her crate, and is also trust worthy in my house alone - so far she only chews her toys and not my kiddos toys. Speaking of kids, she does great with my 3 and 5 year old and loves playing with my older dogs. Lexi is still a puppy and does need to work on some manners and dealing with high stimulation public environments. She does great in my high stimulation crazy household :) She occasionally jumps up on people and can be a little much to other dogs - but she is very responsive to a verbal correction.
Lexi would do best in a home with an active family - kids over age 5 - and another friendly dog. She would make an excellent agility dog or running partner, but does need some work in public situations. This is a re-home situation so we are going to be even more selective with Lexi's final home. Please only email us if you are 110% committed for the rest of Lexi's life and willing to do the following:
Lexi will needs 1-2 hours a day of exercise and active mental stimulation (i.e. a 30 minute walk and 30 minutes of training and active play minimum)
Please submit an email to Elite Blend at telling us about yourself, your family, prior dog experience, where you live, what you do, and your schedule. We love family pictures.
Lexi's cost is $2000 + tax to Elite Blend, + $1000 pre-paid to your trainer (Total cost ~ $3000)
Lexi will not be released until I have spoken with your trainer to discuss your future training plan, and confirmed that you have invested $1000 into her future training. Lexi already has her basic obedience covered. It would be awesome to see her enrolled in more advanced classes like rally or agility lessons.
This may sound over the top, but Lexi is sensitive and switching homes is tough for her. We are committed to making sure this final home is exceptional, just like our sweet girl. Check out Lexi in action below...
