Puppy Arrival Checklist
We do everything we can to come up with the perfect match of an Australian Labradoodle puppy for you and your family based on your preferences, choices, and input, along with our expertise on puppy temperament. Our goal is to have happy families and happy puppies. Please call or email if you have any questions about any of the below information.
As it gets closer to your puppy’s arrival to you, there are a few things we would like you to do.
Picking up or flying to you
Let us know if you will be picking up your puppy at our home or if your puppy is flying to you. We are happy to go over options with you and make the necessary arrangements. If your puppy is flying, please let us know which airport you would like your puppy flown to, and provide us with the name and contact information of the person picking up your Australian Labradoodle puppy at the airport (whoever is picking up will need to bring a valid photo ID upon pick up). This information is required for the airway bill and the health certificate. Once final payment has been received, we can make your puppy’s flight arrangements.
Pay the remaining balance
Pay the balance remaining for your Australian Labradoodle puppy via our website, by check (payable to Kim Kochman and sent to our mailing address at 2950 Newmarket Street Suite #101-181 Bellingham, WA 98226) or calling us and using your credit card over the phone, There is a 3% processing fee for using Paypal or credit card. Full payment is required before travel or pick up arrangements can be made. Keep in mind that if you are mailing a check, it takes time to arrive as well as clear the bank. If applicable, also pay the additional shipping/travel charge. The shipping cost covers the plane ticket, travel crate, health certificate from a certified veterinarian, and transportation to the airport.
Schedule your puppy’s veterinary appointment
If you don’t have one already, find a veterinarian that you will take your puppy to for their first check up – this will need to be done within 72 hours of receiving your puppy for the health guarantee to be valid.
Order food for your puppy
Ordering food for your puppy ahead of time will ensure it arrives just in time for their arrival to you. We feed all of our dogs Life’s Abundance All Life Stage dog food. This can be purchased from their website – www.lifesabundance.com.
