Almost 7 Week Update: Picking is ready to begin. This is an exhausting but enjoyable time as they receive visitors besides the ones they know throughout the day. It is fun to watch the interactions and watch as the puppies go through the various stages of “meeting”, Alarm, Timidity, Relaxing, Acceptance, Enthusiasm. Some of the puppies will sail through to enthusiasm and others will work their way through in their time. As you can see, all the puppies are currently reserved. If that status changes, I will post it here. If you wish to be on a standby list for this litter, I can let you know if anything changes. Best!
5 Week Update: These last two weeks have flown by and the puppies have been phenomenal. Their coats are really starting to show their texture and they are such a joy to interact with as they play well with each other and adore children. They are mobile and still very curious. These will be easy puppies to train.
3 Week Update: These puppies are progressing wonderfully! They are beginning to explore and recognize our family. Socialization is now advancing beyond the sense of smell to include sight and sounds as well. Every stage of development is a joy, but as they begin interacting with us and each other, this is the best.
Dakota’s puppies have been born. This is an exciting time for us, as we see the newborn puppies with their closed eyes all trying to learn how to eat and find warmth next to mom. Did you know that newborn puppies are deaf and blind? They have a sense of smell which is how we communicate with them for the next week and a half. Dakota is an excellent mother and is working hard to content her puppies by keeping them warm, dry, and nourished.
Current Availability: All reserved. These Irish Goldendoodle puppies will be current on their puppy vaccinations and have preventative dewormers as well as heartworm prevention when they are going home age (9 weeks old). They are from good, healthy lines and will soon be ready to come snuggle into your heart! They come with a three year health guarantee and a lifetime of support from us here at Sunshine Acres.

*It is probable that schedule conflicts will arise for the picking time. In the event they do, you may prearrange an appointment in the week prior to 3/25 to prioritize your selection. Once those ahead of you on the list have selected, Sunshine Acres will select a puppy for you based on the list you provide.
**Video and Photos will be shared in the week prior to picking to allow you to “meet the litter”. These pictures and video can be used to pick from a distance. If choosing from a distance, we will be available by phone during your scheduled picking time. Of course, correspondence ahead of the picking date is welcome 🙂
