Puppy Application Form
  
Congratulations and thank you for choosing Ausm Labradoodles!

Having been a breeder and trainer for many years, we know that TEMPERAMENT is the MOST important trait for your new family member. Color, sex, and coat type are just the icing on the cake!

At Ausm Labradoodles, we match a specific puppy to your family based on their individual personalities and yours. We want our puppies to remain in your home furr-ever! We believe that Puppy Matching is the key to you gaining a new family member, rather than you just owning a dog. We will NOT match puppies based on photographs. 

Puppy Matching is a proven method used by most ethical, professional breeders that not only prevents dogs from ending up in shelters, it is also proven to bring you a lifetime of joy. It has been said that, “ You can own the most beautiful dog in the world, but if it is not the right match for you, it is just a dog. A dog that often brings you frustration and even grief. However, a dog that is properly matched to your family is not just a dog, it is your beloved 'child’ even if it happens to be the 'ugliest dog in the world’!” Note: we think all of our dogs are exceptionally gorgeous!

Puppies start to develop their own little personalities at around four to five weeks of age. We watch them very closely as they age, keeping in mind each family's personalities, needs, and desires. By seven weeks, they will each be distinctive from each other, and temperament tests on each puppy will be performed towards the end of their seventh week or beginning of their eighth week.

This test is performed by a stranger to the puppies, and in an unfamiliar environment. These stressors show how a puppy will react in unfamiliar settings. Tests include a puppy's interest towards a stranger, new toys, sights, noises, etc. and further tells us which puppy is best suited for each family.

Puppy Matching will be determined after temperament tests are complete and your puppy will come to your home at around 9 weeks of age.
