Our pups are F2's, and as such, their Cavoodle (Theodore Breed Standard) traits have not yet become predictable, thus the range of price is provided as there are variables to where our pups will place on the price scale based on factors such as Color, Coat type, & Gender. Enquiries are welcomed, and specific pricing offered in consultation with the potential owners on a individual basis. Both Dam and Sire are DNA checked and proven to be clear of genetic predispositions and disease. They are also infused into the Theodore foundation registry as participants in the creation of the MDBA recognized Theodore Pedigree. All our puppies are vet checked, wormed, provided with their first vaccinations, and will have participated in our ESI and ENI programs for building confident, intelligent, advanced little puppies ready to be the best they can be. We provide a puppy pack with information about the pups' milestones and health records from birth to the day they take them home. Along with a supply of the food they have been eating, their favorite chew toy, a blanket with their litter mates' scent on it, and other little trinkets and information that we hope may be helpful, or fun for the pup and new family.
