We make every effort to ensure our Forever Families are able to provide our puppies a life filled with abundant love, training and has their utmost interest at heart . The time and energy spent educating a Forever Family, reviewing one’s application, making sure they are a perfect fit for one of our puppies, and allocating a puppy for them prior to whelping of a litter, means we have turned away other potential Forever Families wishing to reserve a puppy.

8) Heritage Manor does not allow any unscheduled visitations prior to pick up of your puppy. We have scheduled 30-45 minute visits (adults only) around 6 weeks of age, once puppies have received their first series of inoculations. We take every precaution ensuring that your puppy has maximum protection from outside contamination due to their limited inoculations at their very young age. We do not want to compromise either their health or well-being. We understand the excitement on seeing and holding your beautiful puppy.
- Young puppies are not protected against diseases which can simply be brought into our home from someone’s shoes or clothing and easily transferred onto our furniture and floors. These diseases are then picked up by mommy’s paws and she transfers to her puppies. Breeders have lost entire litters due to diseases brought into homes.
- Mom’s are easily stressed from new sounds and voices and her very first instinct is to protect her puppies. Through excitement she may accidentally pounce on one of her puppies injuring them or even worse crushing them.
- A stressed mom’s body creates cortisol. Excess cortisol can result in serious health problems such as elevated blood sugar, high blood pressure, increased risk of infection, decreased bone and muscle mass just to name a few.
Thank you for understanding and allowing us to put the safety, health and well-being of your puppy as our greatest priorities.
9) Heritage Manor Labradoodles reserves the right to select as “first picks” any exceptional breeding quality puppies to advance the betterment of our Breeding Program , prior to companion pet designation of a litter which begins at six weeks of age.
Heritage Manor bases the selection process on priority of reservation, special needs, wish list (size, gender, color), dynamics and lifestyle of family and most importantly the personality match, all outlined on your puppy application. Please know we want the very best fit for both our Forever Families and our puppies. We take great care to match our puppies to the right families by closely watching and continually interacting with our puppies through their early development stage. If your preferences are not negotiable, it may take longer to match your Family to a puppy with your specific preferences. Should your selected litter not have a puppy that meets your needs, we will move your Reservation/Consultation Fee to another litter. All of our puppies WILL have amazing soft wavy fleece coats. All of the puppies will have wonderful temperaments. All of the puppies will be very smart and eager to learn. Unexpected non-pregnancies along with gender, size and coat color of puppies we have no control over.
10) Before adopting a puppy from Heritage Manor and once your puppy has been identified, a binding contract between the parties will be executed.

The puppy must then be spayed/neutered by the puppy’s 7th month birthdate.
12) Going home is generally around 8 weeks of age.
