Welcome to the world, little ones! It's been waiting for you!
Your decision to adopt a Lumar Labradoodle is exciting and we are looking forward to working with you to help you find the perfect puppy for YOUR unique family!
Your first puppy payment, a total of $1500, is now due. Please plan ahead, as the mail is VERY SLOW due to Covid. We STRONGLY recommend using UPS, FedEx, or USPS Priority or Overnight mail. Make your payment payable to Kristina Whitman and send to 2908 Greenwood Circle, Suffolk, VA 23435. Please put the name of the mama dog and your full name in the memo line. Your final payment of $1500 is due by the time the puppies are 5 weeks old.

We especially recommend reading:
The Puppy Primer by McConnell
If you have children, the book “Raising Puppies & Kids Together: A Guide for Parents” by Silvani is a must-read as well!
This is an important time to look for a qualified TRAINER to help you being teaching your puppy. You will want to start Puppy Kindergarten GROUP classes as soon as you bring puppy home!

Want to make the transition home easier? Here’s a way! My teenage daughter Marah sells Snuggle Puppies which will come home with your puppy. This adorable stuffed animal mimics the heartbeat sound of mama and has the scent of your puppy’s litter mates. It will provide tremendous comfort for your pup! Please text Marah at 757-355-1926 to order your Snuggle Puppy. Be sure to tell her your full name as well as the name of your litter’s mama dog.
The pickup time for your puppy is Saturday, April 15, around 11am. Pickup will be done socially distanced for the safety of everyone involved. We will assign your individual pick up time at a later date. We ask you to be prompt out of respect for the family coming in behind you!
