We know that finding the right Labradoodle breeder in NSW is like digging for buried treasure. The excitement of welcoming your furry friend into your home is unmatched, but we also understand that this doesn’t come without doubts and uncertainties. With tons of breeders getting your attention, how do you make sure you’re dealing with the right one?
But don’t worry, your questions and concerns are totally normal! Finding a reputable Labradoodle Breeder who aligns with your values and priorities is a significant decision, that’s why we have prepared these top 5 questions you should ask a Labradoodle Breeder before bringing home your lovely pet.
1. "Tell me about your Labradoodle breeding practices."
Before you get starry-eyed over those adorable Labradoodle pups, it’s important to know how they came into this world. A responsible breeder will gladly share information about their breeding practices by giving you insights into their love for these pooches, their experience, and their commitment to breeding healthy and happy Labradoodles.
Look for a Labradoodle and Puppies breeder who prioritises the health and well-being of their dogs. This means regular vet check-ups, health testing, and a clean living environment for the pups. A good Labradoodle breeder will also focus on socialising the puppies to prepare them for a life with their new families.
2. "Can I meet my Labradoodle puppy’s parents?"
Meeting the Labradoodle puppies is a given, but don’t forget about the parents! Observe their temperament, behavior, and physical traits. Genetics play a huge part in dog’s personality and traits. A trustworthy Labradoodle and Puppies breeder will happily introduce you to the parents, and even encourage you to spend some time with them!
This not only reflects their care for the dogs but also as assurance that they’re not involved in any irresponsible breeding practices.At MonAmour Oodles, we understand the importance of meeting the parents of your future Labradoodle puppy. When you visit our farm location in NSW, we’ll gladly introduce you to our friendly and well-behaved Labradoodle parents!
3. "How do you socialise your Labradoodle puppies?"
You want your Labradoodle to be as friendly as it can be? Early socialisation is the key! Socialising puppies from a young age helps them become well-adjusted and confident dogs. They’ll learn how to interact with people, other animals, and different environments, which can prevent behavior issues down the road.
Ask the Labradoodle breeder how they go about socialising their puppies. Do they expose them to various sounds, textures, and experiences? Do they allow the pups to play with other dogs and children? A breeder who puts effort into this aspect will set you up for success in raising a well-rounded and happy Labradoodle.
While Labradoodles are naturally intelligent, energetic (and hypoallergenic!) dogs, we also ensure here at MonAmour Oodles, that our Labradoodle and Puppies receive plenty of love and attention from our team, making them well-adjusted and confident dogs. We are proud that there are no cages and concretes runs with our breeding program, and that’s because they live on a 250-acre NSW farm to run and play!
4. "What kinds of health testing do you do?"
Bringing home a Labradoodle is a long-term commitment, and ensuring your future furry friend’s health is a top priority. Reputable breeders go the extra mile by conducting extensive health testing on their parent dogs before engaging them into the breeding program.
Labradoodle Puppies can be prone to hereditary health issues, such as hip or elbow dysplasia. This is why it’s important for a reputable breeder to conduct physical check-ups as well as DNA testing for a more accurate identification of potential diseases that comes with specific breeds.
When communicating with potential breeders, don’t hesitate to ask about their efforts to tackle these health issues. Knowing that the breeder is proactively addressing potential genetic conditions will give you peace of mind and ensure a happier and healthier future for your Labradoodle.
Here at MonAmour Oodles, we believe in responsible breeding to ensure that our oodle parents are happy, healthy, and free from any genetic diseases.

Speaking with other Labradoodle owners will give you insights into what it’s like to raise one of these lovable dogs and how supportive the breeder is throughout the process.
