THE DOG SCOOP
Does Fine and Dandy have any puppies available?
Go to our Instagram page on the website, you do not need to be an Instagram follower to be able to view recent puppies.
With the busy life and as fast as puppies grow and change. We now have connected our Instagram page to our website. These pages also automatically connect to Facebook too. Social media is a large part of updating our future and past puppy families of what is happening with our Fine and Dandy Lifestyle. We post daily either videos or pictures. You will be able to be up to date on puppies and pregnancy as well as training videos and just good old fun!
Many puppies have already been spoken for by others who have been on the waiting list. We do keep space open on our lists and try not to fill to capacity to allow others to move from one list to another and to be able to NOT have a long duration of waiting for puppies. If you are interested in JOINING THE F.A.D.A. family and getting on a waiting list for a future litter, read on to the next question.
How much are Fine and Dandy puppies?
The 2022 Price List
BASE PRICE $2500-$4500
MERLE COATS, TRI'S AND/0R BLUE EYES ARE AN ADDTIONAL PRICE
We take great care in studying genetics and choose to breed the best Australian Shepherds and Poodles to produce beautiful, healthy puppies who are smart, fun, and well-rounded.
When you receive your puppy he or she has had 8 weeks of constant human contact. He (or she) will also already have their first set of puppy shots, including an additional parvo shot, and will be microchipped.
In addition, he's had daily physical therapy for healthy movement and for proper socialization. During this time he's had a special high-quality dog food, along with mama's milk, to support strong bones and muscles. Our approved dog food brands currently include Life's Abundance (All Life Stages), Solid Gold (Hund-N-Flocken is great but any flavor except salmon is good), and Kinetic Performance (Power 30k).
What is the deposit and how do I get on the waiting list?
Fill out the Puppy Application.
Once it's submitted and we read through it, we'll set up a phone call or zoom to chat about the puppy and your home. We ask for you to read and sign our policies, you'll leave your deposit, and officially choose your preferred mom and be added to the list.
Part of the process is to get to know a little more about each other before any money has been collected. We look forward to hearing from you to learn out your puppy needs.
The deposit amount is $500. This secures you a place on the waiting list, and it is refundable until your litter of choice had been born, however it can be transferred to another litter, if for some reason you aren't ready for the puppy at that time.
Contact us for any questions:
Why do pups with blue eyes cost more?
It has a lot to do with genetics and breeding stock. Simply put, it's difficult to achieve dogs with blue eyes when breeding, which makes it more rare. We're proud of all our pups and are excited to see what the eye color is when the puppies have grown into their adult eye colors.
There is no way to tell what the eye color truly is until the pup is about six months old; however, if at six weeks the pup has sky blue or ice blue eyes, they usually keep a blue eye. Aussies with their variety of coat and eye colors are always full of surprises!
IN THE SUMMER OF 2022 WE WILL BE OFFFERING A FEW 6 MONTH OLD PUPPIES THAT WILL GO THROUGH OUR TRAINING PROGRAM. THESE DOGS WILL BE OFFERED TO SELECT APPLICANTS AND WILL BE SOLD AT A HIGHER PRICE FOR TRAINING. (ALL OWNERS MUST ATTEND 4 TO 6 HOUR PUPPY BOOT CAMP BEFORE TAKING THEIR 6 MONTH OLD PUPPY HOME.)
Can I move over to different waitlists?
YES. At Fine and Dandy Aussiedoodles, we try not to fill up our waiting lists to capacity. Our dogs whelp around 6-8 puppies per litter, leaving available spots open (2-3 spots per litter). This helps our clients move to other litters if their sex preference of puppy was not available in their chosen litter. It also creates availability for puppy adoption for those who may have lost their pet or finally have the right living condition to have their long awaited puppy. We try our best to not prolong the puppy process. Dogs are pregnant for 9 weeks and then are available for homes 8 weeks of age at the earliest. We post our litters 6 months out. We do have some clients that want to plan further in the future and will be place on litters further out to accommodate our clients needs. Preparing and Planning are the best characteristics of a great puppy parent. Our bustling pregnant times for our moms are March and August. This is when more of our beautiful moms will go into season. We do have some that will be a on different cycles in the year and may have puppies available at different times throughout the year.
Building a Positive FADA Family Network
Our desire to build relationships with our clients also separates us from other breeders. We love staying in contact with our Fine and Dandy Families. We strive to create a community where we all learn from each other and celebrate with each other. We are here for our clients and pups every step of life’s journey, from Fine and Dandy puppy to Fine and Dandy senior dog.
Our network of Fine and Dandy Families is like an extended family or a group of friends who can reach out at any time to ask questions, share photos, and even have meet-and-greets!
One way we build our community of Aussiedoodle lovers is by having an active online presence. We offer educational and fun content via blog posts, web pages, videos, and social media posts. Our FADA families and others who follow our accounts love our how-to videos and informational blog posts with actionable steps.
