We here at Livy’s Doodles & Poodles have come to believe so strongly in Life’s Abundance holistic pet food, that we have chosen to include it in our health guarantee. We feel very strongly about keeping your puppy as healthy as possible and that providing this premium, holistically formulated dog food it will ensure your dog’s nutritional health and long-life! So many dogs and cats are acquiring serious life-threatening health risk through poor diet and vitamin deficiency. LA provides the optimum nutritional benefits for all life-stages ensuring good health and longevity for your puppy, which is why we are willing to stand behind our health guarantee when you feed this specific line of holistically-formulated dog food only!

Often we are asked “what should I feed my puppy? Is there a certain dog food you recommend?” We have researched the dog food and analysed the ingredients of many brands and Life’s Abundance is so much more beneficial for your pets with their top of the line ingredients. Also you end up feeding 2-3 times less compared to other brands. LA has never been recalled! While great research we were shocked with the fact that too often the commercial brands were outsourcing and their cheapening their ingredients (especially the types of Protein) to increase the bottom line. With the other brands we have to worry about cheap fillers, GMO’s and animal by-products (have you ever researched what that is?). Then of course there are NEW recalls and reports of contamination on an almost daily basis now!

What does it contain? LA contains NO by-products, NO corn, NO wheat, NO wheat gluten, NO soy, NO artificial colors/flavors, NO Artificial preservatives. Feeding this healthy food will help give your pet a long and healthy life! If that isn’t enough, it even cost LESS per serving than other premium dog foods & will be shipped right to your door! We love it and more importantly, our dogs all love it too!! LA also contains important guaranteed live prebiotics and probiotics that aid in your dogs overall gut health and digestion (what most brands are missing). The key ingredients, including several other needed vitamins, also support your dog’s overall immune system.

We were so impressed by the quality and high standards of this dog food and the amazing testimonials from the customers and field representatives of this company that we deiced to make the switch to LA. It is one of our goals at LDP to not only improve the quality of our dogs, but to also offer our customers beautiful, healthy, and sweet-tempered puppies that they can enjoy for many years to come.

Who created LA? Who is Dr. Jane Bicks, DVM? She has been a holistic vet for over 20 years. She has served as President of the American Veterinarian Association of New York City, earned three Presidential Citations, appointed by Mayor Rudolph Guliano to help establish one of the largest animal shelters in the world, appeared on 48 Hours, Good Morning America, Animal Planet CNN, Discovery Channel, the Author of three books on responsible care and treatment of pets, and more. Dr. Jane has also created a non-profit foundation where a percent of her product line is contributed towards rescue and care for pets! So every package you purchase has a cause.

Why has LA never been Recalled? There has never been a recall of this holistically-formulated food and it is produced in limited runs on a weekly basis, minimizing periods of storage and helping to deliver the freshest-possible product. While leading brands stockpile tons of food for months on end, LA is made weekly in small batches. Fresher food is more nutrient-rich for your pet. You can be assured that your new puppy will benefit greatly from their strict inventory controls and product safety considerations. This is why LA cannot be found at your local store! They do not want their product aging on shelves in uncontrolled environment.

Guardianship Program

What’s available for guardian?

AKC Moyen poodle female. She’s a Tri merle parti. Ready around Christmas.

Please research the grooming cost for this breed if you’re unsure before applying. With our males you must be within 30 mins of Montrose. There are times when you might get a days notice of when we need him for stud service breedings. However, for our females its often a week+ notice. If you think he/she’s a perfect fit for your family for the rest of his life please submit a application below.

How to qualify as a Guardian Home:

In order to ensure the safety and health of the guardian home dog there are certain requirements to qualify for our Guardian Home Program. You must:

  • Not live in a apartment
  • Have a fully fenced yard (preferred)
  • Live within 2 hours from Montrose, MI. Males we prefer within 30 min away.
  • Ensure that your puppy is well socialized
  • Provide veterinary care when needed as a regular dog expense ( We cover breeding related)
  • Provide appropriate exercise and training.
  • Provide proper breed specific grooming.

What is a Guardian home?

Being a guardian family for a dog can be an excellent way to have a top quality dog for a family pet without all the expense.

We believe every dog deserves a loving forever family that they can call their own. We are not a kennel breeder as dogs raised in kennels do not get the socialization and stimulation that is needed to be a well-balanced happy dog. We believe that a family life is of utmost importance, our Guardian Homes have become an important part of our program and it benefits everyone involved, the dog, the forever family and the breeder.

These pups/dog live with you as your family dog while we retain breeding rights for the dog. The puppies are whelped at our home and the mama stays with us until pups are weaned. Depending on many factors the female or Male would remain in our program up to 5 years of age (no more than 4 litters) for females and 6 for males. In the end we will pay the cost to have your dog spayed or neutered and the dog is fully yours forever.

This dog/puppy is your family pet, your forever companion. We here at Livy’s Doodles & Poodles simply retain breeding rights and she may have a litter or she may not depending on the needs of our breeding program that year.

You must feed Lifes Abundance and purchase from our link. We have done extensive research into this food and it’s very important to us that you follow our requirements when it comes to health! We have great health tested lines that we do not want unhealthy dogs in our program caused by some of the foods out there.

Below is the application to apply for a current guardian home or future. Please take the time to review and complete. We will be in touch. If you do not hear from us something is wrong, please email us directly. We pride ourselves on the prompt communication so if we don’t get back to you in 2 days it’s likely the email didn’t go through.

How does our waiting list work?

We’ve recently decided to do a main waiting list vs waiting list per female. The original reservations will remain as listed below; they are families who reserved in our old process. So to be far to everyone we made no changes to those on our prior list. The families on the new waiting list will be given the option to pick a puppy from the litter with available puppies once they are born. We will reach out to via email or phone listed on your puppy application and you have 72 hours to get back to us! If you do not respond we will move onto the next family assuming you are not interested in the litter offered. If you have committed to a litter and decide to back-out; it must be done before puppies are 4 weeks of age in order to transfer to a future litter; otherwise your reservation fee is non-refundable. Your reservation fee will be held for 2 years. After the 2 years we will assume your are no longer interested in getting a puppy. If you’ve placed a deposit and do not see your name listed, please reach out and inform us. Thank you!

If you prefer to use a credit card, venmo, or PayPal, please process the transaction before arriving to pick up your puppy.

Please see each breed type page for their price ranges.

Grooming

Coat Color And Grooming

Although a doodle can have one of a range of coat types, the desired length is 4 to 6 inches. She has a single coat with hair ranging from straight to loose curls. The curls shouldn’t be tight and the coat shouldn’t be thick or fluffy.

There are three types of texture:

  • The Hair coat, which is similar to fur in shedding breeds, is the least popular. Hair coats shed and usually have a normal doggy odor. This coat is seen in first generations, although breeders try to avoid it.
  • The second texture, called a Wool coat, is dense and similar in feel to a lamb’s wool, hence its descriptive name. Wool coats hang in loose curls and aren’t dense. Generally, the Wool coat doesn’t have a “doggy” odor and it’s usually nonshedding.
  • The Fleece coat has a silky texture often described as an Angora goat texture. This coat ranges from straight to wavy.

Doodles are considered to be non- to low shedders, especially those with a Fleece or Wool coat. Hair coats tend to shed just as they do in other breeds, ranging from very low to average shedding.

The Doodle comes in a wide variety of colors. These can be gold, apricot, caramel, chalk (a chalky white), black, red, café, cream, silver, chocolate, parchment, and blue. They can also have parti-colored coats, which consist of brindles, phantom, patched, or sable colors.

Grooming requirements vary depending on the length and type of coat the dog has. Generally speaking, you can expect to brush a Doodle about once or twice per week. Some can be clipped or trimmed every six to eight weeks to keep the coat easy to maintain. A Doodle should only be bathed when necessary–which isn’t often, as many of the coats don’t have a noticeable doggy odor.

Like Labs, and poodles a doodles can be prone to ear infections, so take a little extra time caring for their ears. Dry and clean them after a swim, and check them once a week for dirt, redness, or a bad odor that can indicate an infection. Then wipe them out weekly with a cotton ball dampened with gentle, pH-balanced ear cleaner to prevent problems.

Brush your Labradoodle’s teeth at least two or three times a week to remove tartar buildup and the bacteria that lurk inside it. Daily brushing is even better if you want to prevent gum disease and bad breath.

Trim nails once or twice a month if your dog doesn’t wear them down naturally to prevent painful tears and other problems. If you can hear them clicking on the floor, they’re too long. Dog toenails have blood vessels in them, and if you cut too far you can cause bleeding–and your dog may not cooperate the next time she sees the nail clippers come out. So, if you’re not experienced trimming dog nails, ask a vet or groomer for pointers.

Begin accustoming your dog to being brushed and examined when she’s a puppy. Handle her paws frequently–dogs are touchy about their feet–and look inside her mouth. Make grooming a positive experience filled with praise and rewards, and you’ll lay the groundwork for easy veterinary exams and other handling when he’s an adult.

As you groom, check for sores, rashes, or signs of infection such as redness, tenderness, or inflammation on the skin, in the nose, mouth, and eyes, and on the feet. Eyes should be clear, with no redness or discharge. Your careful weekly exam will help you spot potential health problems early.

 

 

 

 

Coat Type

Curly/wooly coat has the feel of the poodles coat with a looser curl, non shedding!

Fleece coat –has a fluffy, shaggy appearance with a loose wave.   Fleece coats have a distinct soft fleecy ‘feel’ like no other dog coat.  This coat is what the Labradoodle is famous for. non shedding!

Straight/Wispy coat – looks more like a Labrador’s coat from a distance. When you get a closer look you will notice their hair is longer and with a little wave. This coat type will probably shed a little, however it is low maintenance. The easiest coat type to care for!

The curly or fleecy coats will be longer and will need grooming, brushing, and trimming often.
