ALAA APPROVED AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE BREEDER!

What does this mean to you? This means that all the things you should be concerned about when looking for an Australian Labradoodle puppy have already been required and verified by the Australian Labradoodle Association of America. Our Australian Labradoodle dogs must meet or exceed strict requirements for health testing and you can rest assured that we are doing everything possible to breed the healthiest Australian Labradoodle puppies possible. The health warranty/contract provided to families has been reviewed and approved by the ALAA and must be honored, if it ever becomes necessary, and all litters and puppies must be registered and appropriate pedigree information provided to families. Being an ALAA registered Australian Labradoodle breeder means that you can be certain that we are responsible and accountable to an organization that has very strict guidelines and requirements in place that protect you as a buyer.

Puppy Buyers BEWARE: All Breeders are NOT Created Equally!

You read that right! All breeders, even among one breed, even among one breed club, are not created equal, and finding a good one takes a lot of research and time. Buying a puppy should never be done on impulse or purchased as a gift for an unknowing party, and a good breeder would never let you buy on an impulse or buy as a surprise for another party. If breeders are not breeding for the right reasons, if they are not breeding fully health tested stock (what good is it to only do a couple of tests on a breed that is known to be susceptible to 4 or 6 testable disorders), if they are not putting a ton of work into the puppies they are producing, if they don’t stay on top of new research and new data, are not always looking for better ways to do something, you should not be buying a puppy from them. Breeders who are only part way invested in their breeding program, can and do offer puppies more cheaply, but ask yourself, what are you really getting in the end?

We are recognized on the Premium Breeder’s List!

Why Did Australian Labradoodles Make the Top 20 Best Breeds for New Dog Owners List?

Australian Labradoodles are the ultimate family companion, they are loving and kind with children, intelligent with adults, patient and devoted to the elderly and sociable with other animals. Australian Labradoodles are always eager to accompany you for a walk or car ride, but are equally as happy receiving cuddles and snoozing close to you. Running, fetching the ball, swimming, snuggles and stretching out for a nap are some of their favourite pastimes. With their allergy friendly non-shedding coats and low dander, what more could you want in a furry family companion?

What is the Difference between a Labradoodle and an Australian Labradoodle?

That is a very good question! There are distinct differences between the two and it is important to do your research, know your wants and needs and be able to make the best choice for your family. Common Labradoodles are generally a first cross, or maybe a second cross, between a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle (F1) or an F1 back to a Poodle (F1b). While these are Labradoodles, they are lacking some of the important traits that one sees in the Australian Labradoodle. In these first and second crosses (F1s and F1bs) you will get the temperament of the Labradoodle; however, what you will not get is the "look" of an Australian Labradoodle. You will not see the predictability in coat types or sizes, and important to note is that you will see shedding in these early crosses. These first crosses are either "Labby" or "Poodle-ish", they lack that regal beauty associated with the Australian Labradoodle. Beauty is also not just skin deep! Australian Labradoodles have ancestors from Australia whose pedigrees include Cocker Spaniel, Wheaton Terrier and Portuguese Water-dog, along with their Labrador Retriever and Standard Poodle bloodlines. Australian Labradoodles were originally developed to make service dogs available to people with allergy concerns. Generations of breeding have developed a more consistent allergy friendly coat.
