Our Puppies At Kelsey House
We don’t breed many litters, but we are very proud of the litters we do produce taking great care in selecting pairings, care of our puppies and subsequent placement in their new home.
Much time, research and investment has been put into producing our quality puppies and all the necessary health tests have been undertaken on our dogs prior to breeding (certificates of these are available to view).
No expense is spared for our girls (or indeed our other dogs!) during their own journey through life and the same applies to any pregnancy and expected litter.
0ur dogs live in our house and all puppies are born and raised in this environment in a dedicated room just off our kitchen. The room is fully equipped, temperature controlled, light, bright, clean and cosy. Mum instinctively knows what to do and when and dictates how much time she will spend with her pups, which is quite remarkable and will freely spend time between her pups and our family.
Mum and puppies have access directly onto the garden, so pups can enjoy playtime outside, which initiates a good start to outdoor socialisation and toilet training.
Kelsey House puppies receive the ultimate care with appropriate handling, interaction, exposure to everyday stimuli’s and of course cuddles. We deliver the well-respected puppy enrichment programme ‘Puppy Culture’ from 3 days old which is an incredible training, developmental and socialisation protocol designed to help raise puppies to be calm, confident adults. Alongside this we deliver and ESI (Early Scent Introduction)
Puppies will also benefit from socialisation with other dogs in the household and a mixture of adults and children.
The time and effort we invest in our puppies is rewarded and reflected in well-adjusted puppies that mature into wonderful trainable young adults with the ability to settle into new homes and surroundings.
We do not early spay or neuter, (E.S.N.) our puppies before they leave our home. After much independent research and discussions with numerous vets, we believe that puppies need their hormones to grow, both physiologically and psychologically. We do not feel that E.S.N. benefits the puppies in any way. Until quality research has been undertaken that proves that no harm is done, we will not carry out this procedure.
We do support the spaying and neutering of dogs at a more mature age as this does have some proven health benefits. It is a stipulation within our legally binding Companion Pet Puppy Contract that all pet puppies are spayed or neutered around the age of twelve months and proof of the procedure carried out is provided to Kelsey House before the puppy reaches 14 months of age.

Family Guardian Homes
For us to achieve our breed development goals, we need to have a number of dogs in our programme which can be more than we have the space for in our home.
Australian Labradoodles are so social and people oriented, they don't do well outside a family environment so to give them the best possible life a Family Guardian Programme provides us with the solution.
A Family guardian home enables our puppies with the potential and qualities to join our programme to live with selected local families, and still participate in our breeding programme.
The benefits are a ‘pick of litter’ puppy and no purchase cost for the puppy to join your Family. The puppy will live as your family pet and as the guardian you are responsible for all costs that you would be responsible for with any pet; food, toys, routine vaccinations, insurance etc.
Our families keep in very close contact with us and visit often to maintain familiarity and follow certain guidelines with regard to diet, exercise and grooming which must be followed.
Once the puppy matures we conduct the required health screening. If satisfactory they join our breeding programme (only spending approximately 2 months with us as a breeder per litter) and retire around 4/5 years. At this point the girl will be spayed and all ownership will be passed to the family and they will continue to live out their life with you as a family pet.
