Labradoodle used for illustration based on offspring of five or more consecutive breedings of a multigenerational Australian Labradoodle or Purebred Australian Labradoodle. Walking and day care services are calculated for 11 months because it is assumed the dog will go on vacation with family for two weeks per year, and will be boarded for another two weeks. Prices exclude taxes and shipping.
