We take great pride in raising our puppies. They are born in our house, near our bedrooms, and are part of the family from day one. During the 8 weeks the puppies are with us, we do everything we can to get them off on the right paw, so when you take them home, they already have a great base of experiences on which to build.

Once the puppies are born, they spend much of their time in their very own “puppy palace”, which is a heated room with windows connected to our family room. As they grow, we provide them with hours of important socialization, introducing each puppy to a wide variety of people, sounds, smells and scenarios, which helps to create balanced dogs who are inquisitive, adaptable and social. While in our care, the puppies experience things like:

  • Socializing with our adult dogs
  • Playing with children
  • Walking on a variety of surfaces
  • Hearing many different sounds, like household appliances
  • Being bathed, blow-dryed and brushed
  • Visiting the vet
  • Exploring our puppy playgrounds, including the Avidog adventure box
  • Running through tunnels and climbing over obstacles
  • Responding to the sound of a regular plastic whistle
  • Experiencing the sights and sounds of acreage life.

We begin introducing them to a crate at five weeks old, so by the time they join your home they are familiar with the sight of a crate. In addition, all of our puppies are litter box trained to eliminate on wood chips.

We love raising balanced, happy dogs!

When you’re ready to say ‘yes!’ to adding a new fur member to your family, we require a non-refundable deposit of $500. This secures your place on the waiting list. The deposit can be paid to slawton1@telus.net via Interac Email Money Transfer . This amount is deducted off the full purchase price of $2,750.

We’ll email you when your puppy is born, and let you know what to expect in the weeks to come.

When your puppy is 3 weeks old, we’ll ask you to provide more information about your lifestyle, personalities, and expectations for your puppy. This information, in addition to your original application, will help us match you with a puppy.

The final payment of $2,250 plus GST is required when the puppy around 7 weeks old and allocated to your family. Between 6-7 weeks old, we test the puppies and match them to their new families. You’ll receive an email from us introducing you to your new family member.

At 8 weeks old, the puppies are ready to leave us. You’ll come to the Lawton acreage on a set homecoming date, which we will communicate to you once the puppies are born.

In the event that we cannot provide you with a puppy or if you cannot take a puppy at the time of availability, you can switch litters or wait until the timing is better for you. The deposit is non-refundable except if Mountain Solace Doodles cannot supply you with a puppy for whatever reason.
