You’ve done your research and now you’ve come to the conclusion that a Sheepadoodle (or Mini Sheepadoodle) is the right dog for you and your family! And now you’re searching up “Sheepadoodle puppies for sale” or “Sheepadoodle puppies near me” to try and find the best Sheepadoodle breeder.
Sheepadoodles are growing in popularity. Their teddybear-like appearance paired with their fun-loving nature makes them an incredibly great dog for an active family. Their increasing popularity means the number of Sheepadoodle breeders is also increasing.
I’m part of a couple of private Facebook groups for Sheepadoodle owners and recently asked members for the name of their Sheepadoodle breeders if they loved them! I wrote down all their answers and have compiled this list so that you are able to narrow down your search in the quest for finding the perfect Sheepadoodle breeder!
How to Find the Best Sheepadoodle Breeder
Finding a good breeder is incredibly important. You do not want to be supporting backyard breeders or any puppy mills, and unfortunately when you search “Sheepadoodle puppies for sale” you can’t always guarantee that the results will be quality breeders, making it very important to do your research.
The best way to find out more about your potential breeder is to contact them (via email and phone), visit them and ask lots of questions.
Sometimes visiting isn’t an option, however. You might be purchasing your puppy from another state or province. In this case, you should be asking lots of questions, speaking to the breeder over the phone and reading lots of reviews.
Good Sheepadoodle breeders (and breeders in general) will happily answer your questions and won’t try to hide anything. They will be open about anything and everything there is to know about owning a Sheepadoodle, including the amount of work that goes into grooming a Sheepadoodle, their temperament, the level of exercise they need and tons more.
You should also make note if the breeder has terms and conditions listed on their website. Most breeders will make a point in their contracts stating that the puppy/dog will need to be returned to them if you can no longer care for it.
You also should ask how old the puppy will be when you are able to pick it up. A responsible breeder will not give up a puppy earlier than 8 weeks old, as this is an important developmental phase for puppies where they need their mother and siblings to learn proper socialization skills.
Sheepadoodle Breeders and Waitlists
Many Sheepadoodle breeders have long waitlists. Don’t be put off by a waitlist, however! Sometimes you may need to wait for up to a year before you can get a puppy.
It’s important to contact several different Sheepadoodle breeders to see what their waitlist policy is.
You can also join various Sheepadoodle groups on Facebook and ask questions! Most of us in the Facebook groups know who the bad Sheepadoodle breeders are will be able to let you know if you have a bad feeling about the one you are speaking with.
Sheepadoodle Breeder Red Flags
If any of your potential breeders show these red flags, be very careful. I know that you are likely excited and even in some cases, desperate, to get a hold of a new puppy, but you should never support breeders who do not put the care of the dogs first.
Tread very carefully if your potential breeders:
- Sends the puppies to the owners before 8 weeks (a 6-7 week old puppy is NOT fit to leave their mama just yet)
- Will not show you health testing certificates
- Will not show vet records
- Puppy comes with no guarantee
