Weekly Update August 21, 2018

 

August 21, 2018

Welcome to another update at Lamgo Farms!  This is such an exciting time in our lives and I’m so happy you could join us this week to see just what has been happening with our farm and family life!

We have had 2 more litters born over the past two days!  It never gets old.  Seeing new life enter the world.  It’s always so very exciting!  God is always so good!

Right now because we have introduced a surprise litter from Brie and Duke, we do have some openings in other litters.

Scroll down to see what is open.  I know so many messages and emails have come through asking what we have available.  If you see an open, you can scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to reserve a picking spot.  Pricing is also listed in our FAQ.

Just a reminder- for those deferring picking spots to future litters.  Please note that although your deposit transfers, any annual pricing increase will also apply.  We do not have pricing increases very often.  Perhaps 3 times in 15 years.  But we did have a price increase in January 2018.  So anyone who has placed a deposit to hold a spot and then has floated it to a litter a year or two down the road may want to scroll down to the pricing list to check our current figures.

On a personal front. . .we are doing well and the kids are easing back into homeschooling.  We will hopefully have exciting news to share within the next few weeks including the opening of our new online pet supply store mid September!

Always something to look forward to here on the farm.  Now, I have to get up in about 3 hrs. . .sooooo, let’s not waste any time . . .scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters this week. . .


CURRENT and Next Season’s Breeding Schedule: (this is our Fall/Winter 2018 and Spring 2019 schedule)

 Here is what we have now and have planned: scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit and to answer many questions.  


Upcoming Litters. . .FAll 2018-19 Breeding Schedule

 

Parker/Squishy F1bb Pockets

Born August 16, 2018

What’s Happening Now:

Parker is doing great!  She is as usual the perfect momma to these babies.  They are getting fat, but if you look at them compared to our other brand new puppies. . .they are still much smaller!  That’s the pocket size.  They just stay a forever puppy.  Right now they are still pretty much just nursing and sleeping and growing.  You can see we have one wavy coat which is our orange collar boy.  Everyone else looks to be a curly.  I’ll need another week to be sure of the texture of the coats.  Whether they are a fleece or cotton or mix.  But they are doing awesome!!!

What Happens Next:

Right now the puppies’ eyes and ears are closed.  They use their sense of smell to find momma.  Around day 14 we will see the first sets of eyes open.  That is when I’ll take individual pictures.  Video starts on week 3.

I’ve changed our picking time to Thursday and Friday, September 27th and 28th.  For those unable to attend, we can do a long distance pick with FaceTime or video.

Pick up is Friday, October 12th via appt.

  1. Hobbs- picking, Thursday, Sept 20th 2pm

FAQ:

What breedings to you have coming up? Please scroll back Up for current and upcoming litters (scroll down for more future litters) to the “Next Season’s Breeding Schedule” to see what will be bred and what picking spots are open.

How do I know if you have any open picking spots in a particular litter? Scroll  until you see your desired litter.  Any available picking spots will be listed as “open.”

How do I reserve a picking spot? Email me at goldendoodles@lamgofarms.com with “deposit” in the subject line.  Note which litter and number on the picking spot you prefer that is listed as open. Include your name, mailing address, phone number and any preferences you may have for your puppy.  Then go to our pricing/payment page at LamgoFarms.com to place your deposit of $250.  There is a $5 PayPal processing fee that will be added to your total.  

Are Deposits refundable?  Unfortunately, due to the high demand of our puppies, we no longer refund deposits.  If for some reason we do not have enough puppies born to provide for every owner- your deposit can be transferred to your next desired litter.  The $250 is a picking spot reservation.  This also helps us weed out those who are not serious about taking home one of our puppies.  

Do you have any paperwork we need to complete? Since our puppies are Reserved almost a year in advance- we will spend that time getting to know each of you and will be offering the proper education to make sure you are fully prepared to bring home your puppy.  When placing a deposit, please include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number and any preferences you may have.  Once you place your deposit, I will email you your purchase contract which also serves as your receipt.  You will need to sign and email this back to me. You will also receive a suggested supply list as well as our Health Warranty.  The Health Warranty is not due back until 30 days after you take your puppy home.

Do you choose the puppy for us or can we choose our own puppy?  You will be asked to visit the Farm at your puppy picking appointment and will be given an hour to choose your puppy.  The choice is yours.  Please understand that we cannot guarantee gender availability.  When it comes to our donated therapy/service dogs, we will choose the top two for you and then you can make your choice out of those.

Can we visit Lamgo Farms for allergy testing or just to see the dogs?  Every puppy owner that has placed a deposit is invited to the farm between weeks 5 and 6 for a puppy picking appointment.  If unable to attend- we can send extra video and pictures or FaceTime the appointment.  Unfortunately- we do not allow other visitors due to the health risk for our puppies and dogs as well as for the safety of our family.  If you wish to have allergy testing- it’s best to find a doodle owner and see if you can tolerate that particular generation of doodle.  We have several pictures, video as well as slide shows showing our grounds, parents and past puppies.  You may also visit our Facebook page and join our open forum to communicate with any of our past owners about their experience with Lamgo Farms.  We welcome your questions!

Do you do temperament testing?  Yes, all puppies are tested at week 5 and the results are emailed prior to your puppy picking appointment.

Do you take weekly pictures of your puppies?  Yes, The first week is simply a group photo but individual pictures are taken weekly starting at week 2.  Video is taken weekly starting at week 3 and concludes at week 7.

Are your puppies socialized?  Yes!  We now have 7 children.  Ages 22, 18, 16, 14, 10, 2 and 16 months old.  We homeschool and are able to hold, socialize using sensory stimulation as well as play with and cuddle your puppy several times a day which prepares them for any home environment.

When do the puppies come home?  Puppies are ready to go home on the Saturday between weeks 7 and 8.

Do you have a Health Warranty?  Yes, Lamgo Farms has a 1 year warranty over hips and eyes.  

Do you Health Test your Breeding dogs?  Some are OFA tested but not all.  After consulting an Animal Orthopedic doctor- we learned that these tests do not offer the assurance that puppies will not have hip issues.  A good line of breeding stock along with cross breeding and proper care of the puppy will protect and prevent hip issues.

Do you allow boarding after the release date of the puppy?  Unfortunately, we are unable to keep your puppy past the pick up date.  You will be notified within 24 hours after the birth as to your picking appointment time as well as puppy pick up date/time/information.  This will allow you at least 7 weeks to make pick up arrangements.  Pick up is on a Saturday a 10 am.  We do sometimes offer a Friday pick up by appointment.  Lamgo Farms is closed on Sundays and cannot do picking appointments or pick up appointments at that time.

Do you fly puppies out of state?  At this time, we only fly during the months of November through May.  Our summer months are too hot to fly.  Flying is an additional $450.  We use both Flight Nannies (for dogs that stand no taller than 11 inches) and pet cargo flights.

What is included in the price of the puppy?  An awesome Lamgo Farms PUPPY. . . complete puppy packet:  Crate, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, treats, scented blanket from littermates, training material, folder with health records, pedigree, etc, emailed photo collage of your puppy as well as a 10 lb bucket of premium puppy food that will last a few months.

What is your pricing? Sales Tax is included in the price.

Double Doodles (mini Labradoodle/mini goldendoodle cross): $2,100

Goldendoodles (Standard, Medium and miniature): $1,950 

Goldendoodles (Petite, Micro mini’s): $2,100 

Goldendoodles (Pocket): $2,400

Do you offer discounts: Yes, we offer a $300 discount for our Military owners.  Verification of service is required.  Once a year we also offer donation dogs for those medically requiring therapy or service dogs.  Please email me your circumstance and we will pray and ask God for the answer.  We have a medical form that needs to be completed by a doctor to qualify for service needs.

Do you have a Spay/Neuter clause?  Yes.  All of our puppies are sold with our contract stating all males must be neutered before 5 months old and females must be spayed before 6 months old.  We no longer sell for breeding purposes. Puppies not fixed by the requested time frames will void the Health Warranty.

What sets Lamgo Farms apart from other Goldendoodle breeders?  First, having 14 years experience in breeding Goldendoodles- we have learned quite a bit about what to breed to create the perfect doodle for every coat type and personality desired as well as our dedication to each litter.  Living on a farm and homeschooling allows us to constantly lay hands on the puppies and give them the ultimate care they need and you desire in a breeder.  We care greatly for our puppies and owners and strive to give that personal touch to every one and puppy that comes our way.  We also trust God to give us the perfect puppy you desire.  We pray over every breeding and puppy and are genuinely blessed with the ability to raise these fluffy friends.

 


 

Pictures and Video:  When we do have puppies. . .Pictures will be uploaded in our photo gallery at photos.lamgofarms.com and on our Facebook page.  Video will be located on our Youtube channel at Happenings at lamgo Farms.  Weekly pictures will start at week 2 and Video will start to be taken when puppies are three weeks old.

***To better serve each of our clients as well as my family, I have limited my emailing and online time to Tuesday’s.  If you need to reach me and cannot get a returned call. . .simply text me at the number below.  It is much easier to text or email during homeschooling hours.
As always, please feel free to email or call/text (817-366-7995) if you have any questions or concerns.
