Previous Litter Winter 2018
F1B Medium/Small Standard Goldendoodles
For Molly's Winter litter we planned for a dual-sire litter meaning that she will be bred with two different sires. The puppies from each sire are easily identifiable by their colours. We coat/colour test all of our dogs so we know exactly what coat colours, patterns and types to expect from each pairing. Although we bred Molly with Rudy and Oaklan, only Rudy had puppies this time.
Molly and Rudy's puppies are Medium F1B Goldendoodles, meaning that the adult-size of this litter should range from 35-55 lbs. They are cream, light apricot and dark apricot colourings with white abstract markings and tuxedo markings. There are 2 girls and 4 boys in this litter.
We are planning to dual-sire Molly for her next litter (late summer) again when Oaklan is a bit older. Molly and Oaklan's puppies will be also Medium Goldendoodles. Possible colours will include black, brown, black and tan phantoms and brown and tan phantoms. Some puppies will also have white markings as well. If you would like to see examples of these colours, please click here.
You can learn more about how we raise our puppies at Ridge & Valley Farm and how to adopt a puppy here.
You can see update photos for this litter and other litters on our Facebook page or Instagram @ridgeandvalleyfarm! Many of our previous puppies also have their own Instagram accounts!
THE PARENTS-OAKLAN WAS NOT SUCCESFUL THIS SEASON, RUDY IS THE ONLY SIRE
Details on Expected Coats for each litter (for summer 2019)
Molly X Rudy (F1 X Poodle = F1B)
All puppies will be cream and apricot with a small chance of light red. In theory, half of the litter will have wavy coats and half of the litter will have curly coats. All of the puppies will have white abstract markings with a possibility of tuxedo markings. You can see their beautiful previous litter here. These puppies will most likely be non-shedding to light shedding.
Molly X Oaklan (F1 X F1BB = F2)
The probability of each coat colour and pattern is broken down as follows:
37.5 % Black (half of which will have white markings)
37.5 % Chocolate (half of which will have white markings)
12.5 % Black & Tan Phantom (half of which will have white markings)
12.5 % Brown & Tan Phantom (half of which will have white markings)
Half of the litter in theory will be wavy and half will be curly. These puppies will most likely be non-shedding or light shedding. This will be Oaklan's first litter.
Puppies will stay at our home until they are 9-10 weeks of age. During their time with us they will be socialized with people and other dogs. They will also have an enriching environment full of various toys to play with and stimulate their developing brains. We will expose them to different stimuli (e.g. different flooring, noises, crate, indoors, outdoors etc.) to help stimulate their senses and neurologial system. There has been a fair amount of research done on early neurological stimulation in puppies and the benefits it offers developing puppies. We follow the Puppy Culture training program.
We will also start the process of house training using the pine litter training method at around 4-5 weeks. We have found that our puppies have incredible success with this and easily transition to home potty training. We will also expose your puppy to a crate in their puppy play room so that they can learn to enjoy snuggling in a crate. Please note that your puppy will not be crate trained but will be comfortable sleeping in one (with the door open).
Our puppies will receive their first needle, microchip, all de-worming and have a complete vet check-up before leaving. Each puppy will also come with a puppy care package (e.g. blanket, toy, crate) and personal scrapbook documenting their growth. We provide a 1-year health guarantee with our puppies.
We do not ask for a deposit to be put on the waiting list. We will begin contacting people on our waiting list once we have a confirmed pregnancy and again once the puppies are born to check-in and update you. We will provide you with videos and pictures throughout your puppy's first 8 weeks and begin the puppy selection process via pictures/videos around 6-7 weeks of age. We do not allow visitors before puppies have had their first needle at 8 weeks of age for the safety of the dogs. Our puppies are sold with a non-breeding contract.

MOLLY & RUDY'S PUPPIES
We believe that health begins with proper nutrition. For this reason, we feed all of our dogs and puppies TLC dog food. The ingredients are wholesome and are rich in protein sources. Their animal and plant ingredients are never frozen and arrive fresh daily from local farms and oceans. Since TLC does not have store fronts, their foods do not sit in warehouses and stores for months. We like knowing that we are providing our dogs with fresh food that is only days old. Having our food delivered to the door for free is just an added bonus!
