Pricing & contact highlights

Premier Australian Labradoodles for Adoption.

1. What is the adoption fee: The adoption fee of our Australian Labradoodles is $3500.00 plus WA sales tax.
2. Deposit: To reserve your puppy, we require a non-refundable deposit of $500. This deposit applies in full toward the total price of $3500.
3. Balance Payment: The remaining $3000 is due at seven weeks, after the puppies have been assigned to their forever families.

Step 1: Online Application Form

The first step you need to do is to fill out an application form. Once you apply, we will contact you in up to 2 business days to learn more about what you are looking for.

We do not reserve puppies by a specific color, sex, or other specific traits. However, we will do everything we can to match you with the puppy of your dreams.

Puppy selections are made in order of deposits received. Deposits are non-refundable but transferrable

At this time, a puppy contract will also be sent to you for review.

Step 2: Sending the deposit

Once you have decided to adopt a Snooze and Sniff Australian Labradoodle puppy, and there is availability on the desired litter Reservation List, a $500 deposit is required to secure your spot. The deposit will secure your spot on our MASTER LIST.

We have changed our reservation process. Instead of specific litters, we maintain a master list. As litters become available, we allocate puppies based on the order of received fees. You can choose to skip a litter without losing your place in line. Shifting to this master list system means your order remains tied to the date of your fee payment. For instance, if you paid your deposit on 2/12 and decide to wait for the next litter, your reservation date remains 2/12, allowing you to choose before those who deposited after 2/12.
Maintaining a unified reservation list is our preferred approach for families. This system offers you greater flexibility in choosing your desired puppy, and your position remains secure whether you switch litters or opt to wait for a later date.

Puppy selections are made in order of deposits received. Deposits are non-refundable but transferrable.

Deposits are accepted via PayPal (check out the adoption page for a direct link), Venmo, Zelle, or by personal check sent by mail a week prior to picking up the puppy. We now accept credit card payments as well (transaction fees may apply)

At this time, a puppy deposit contract will be signed.

Step 3: Puppy selection & final payment

Puppies will be selected between 6-8 weeks of age (sometimes we do selection earlier if we feel like the litter won’t be fully reserved) and can go home at 8 weeks of age. The selection process works in the order the deposits are received. Please keep in mind that it is in Mother Nature’s hands to determine the gender, temperament, energy, color, and coat of your future puppy. We aim to help you pick the best puppy for your family based on your wishes and the puppy’s traits. We also do puppy temperament test at 6.5 weeks. The result of this tests will be provided to the families on our master list that expressed an interest in this litter. You can choose to skip a litter without losing your place in line, if there is no puppy that meets your needs.

*Snooze and Sniff retain the right to withhold any puppy(s) in order to perpetuate the breed. These breeder puppies will be assigned to selected Guardian families. (Click here if interested in the Guardian program.)

Occasionally, we might use our “breeder spot” for specific service or therapy work. If a client has a trainer set up and that trainer wants to help in picking a therapy or service dog, I have the right to let them use my pick.

The remaining balance of $3000 is due after selection day.

STEP 4: Puppy Pick-up & Delivery Options

Puppies go home around 8 weeks of age. Pick-up arrangement dates and times will be made to accommodate different needs. If a puppy cannot be picked up at 8 weeks of age, special arrangements can be made to hold your puppy for a specified period. This needs to be arranged prior to the pickup day. The charge is $50 per day.

We do not ship puppies! But here is a list of other delivery options:
• Delivery to the Greater Seattle Area, your home or a meeting location within 2 hours from our home in Port Orchard, WA ($2 per mile – one way)
• Pick up directly from our home as well!
• Delivery to the SEA-TAC airport to meet you and/or your family ($200)
• Flight nanny delivery (cost varies +/- $500)
