New Puppy Tips

At Ashford Manor Labradoodles we work hard every day with our puppies. We want to make sure they get off to a great start with your family as well. Here are some things that will help both of you become the best dog owners possible. We have created a list of things we think are important for you to think about before brining home your new puppy.


  • Monthly Heartworm Meds
  • Monthly Flea and Tick Meds (not to be combined with Heartworm)
  • Proper Vaccinations
  • Yearly vet visits for routine exam including parasites
  • Yearly dental exam



  • Daily walks
  • Basic obedience – sit, down, stay, come, and potty training
  • Age appropriate toys that challenge your puppy
  • Consistency


  • Daily brushing of their coats
  • Daily brushing of their teeth
  • Nail trimming as needed
  • Visiting a groomer at least every twice a year

Keep your puppy healthy!
