Kings Labradoodles are family pets. All our dogs live either here with us or with our amazing Guardian families. They are first and foremost a loved family member living in a home, not in a kennel.
Kings Labradoodles breed Medium Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles.
Kings Labradoodles is a member of the Australian Labradoodle Association. www.laa.org.au
This means Kings Labradoodles is a breeder that follows the ethics and policy’s set down by the ALA to ensure the well-being of the dog is at the forefront of all decisions.
Health and Temperament are our primary considerations when choosing our breeding dogs. Our dogs are hip and elbow scored and health tested to ensure any genetic issues aren’t passed on.
My primary goal as a breeder is to ensure when a pup goes to it's new home, it stays there until it crosses over the rainbow bridge after a long happy life.
To help achieve this, I want to assist people in understanding the difference between a 1st Generation Labradoodle and Multigenerational Australian Labradoodle as well as the difference between "back yard" breeeders and ethical and reputable breeders. Please read the "What you need to know" page.
We are based in the Illawarra, about 2 hours south of Sydney in NSW, Australia.

Over my lifetime I have owned several different breeds of dog, all of which I have loved dearly and treat them as a member of our family. They have all been in the lounge room with us every night, come on holidays with us and slept indoors. Out of all the breeds I have owned, I find the Australian Labradoodle needs to be with it's family more so than any other breed I have owned. They are not a dog that can be left in the backyard. They want to be with their "Pack". They are an exceptionally intelligent dog and will soon find ways to entertain themselves, which will include digging and chewing their way through your yard if they aren't included in the family.
Training your pup is essential.
Starting with Puppy Pre-school, where you as the owner will learn a great deal about caring for your pup and your pup will learn correct socialising skills. as well as foundational commands. (I highly recommend *Best Friends Pets at Stockland Shellharbour if you're in the Illawarra area)
Because the Australian Labradoodle is an intelligent breed, they benefit from additional training. (I highly recommend *The Dog Project)
Socialising your pup is also essential, especially the first 12 - 16 weeks. Spending time positively exposing your pup to as much as possible in that time helps develop a confident dog.
Crate training is a personal choice, but for me, I wouldn't have a puppy without crate training it. This is for many reasons;
*no personal gain is received, these recommendations are from personal experience only.
When you bring your pup home, it will cry, it will toilet inside, it will mouth (also described as biting), it will chew things it shouldn't. This is all normal puppy behaviour and how you deal with it will make a difference to how your puppy grows and develops. PATIENCE AND CONSISTENCY ARE A NECESSITY.
