THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

THE AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE

So you’ve started your research and you’re seeing all sorts of different ads for Labradoodles, Australian Labradoodles and Multigenerational Labradoodles. What’s the difference?

A Labradoodle is a Labrador x Poodle. As this is first generation, which coat (Poodle or Labrador) (shedding or non shedding) the pup will have is an unknown factor.

An Australian Labradoodle will also have Spaniel in their ancestry. 

A Multigenerational Australian Labradoodle has parents and grandparents that are also Australian Labradoodles.  Being multigenerational, coats, temperament and appearance is more predictable. 

Australian Labradoodles are given a grading. This is decided by how many generations of Australian Labradoodles are in its line.

AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLES NEED TO BE A MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY

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 AND SOCIALISATION IS A MUST

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 weeks. Spending time 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;

  1.  It helps with toilet training, because puppies don't like to toilet in their sleeping area. 
  2. You are able to leave a puppy at a groomers or vet without causing anxiety. 
  3. You know when you go to sleep at night, they are safe. 
  4. It gives them a place that is theirs, a place they can retreat to when they want some space.


*no personal gain is received, these recommendations are from personal experience only,

NORMAL PUPPY BEHAVIOUR

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.

GROOMING

Australian Labradoodles have a non-shedding fleece or wool coat, that requires regular brushing, (at least 3 times per week) to avoid knots and matting. 

Australian Labradoodles will also need regular trips to the Groomer for a trim. This can be as frequent as every 6-8 weeks or as little as 2-4 times per year, depending on your preference on the length of coat you like and how much effort you're willing to put into brushing your dog.

FAQs

Q. Why is my pup already de-sexed before leaving the breeder?


A. For the benefit of the Australian Labradoodle breed, breeding dogs are selected by health and temperament. Thousands of dollars are invested by each breeder, into sourcing and testing the right breeding dogs. Not all dogs can be or should be breeding dogs. 


Q. Will you sell a pup that isn't de-sexed?

A. I will only sell breeding quality pups to ALA members.


Q. Will you sell puppies interstate?

A. Yes I will, at the buyers expense. This will be an additional cost on top of your puppy price.


Q. Will you sell puppies overseas?

A. I will only sell puppies within Australia and  New Zealand.


Q. Why do you choose our puppy for us?

A. The right puppy is chosen for each buyer, based on the information you have provided on your application form. This is why it is important you are honest and give as much information as possible. Pups are chosen to match their temperament with the lifestyle of the buyer. 


Q. Can I pick the colour?

A. No and Yes. As a breeder, my focus is health and temperament. By all means when filling out your application write down any colour preferences you have and if possible it will be matched. If you're not willing to compromise on colour you may have to wait an unknown time. It’s also important to know, Australian Labradoodles can change colour as they grow and the colour they are when they are born may not be the same colour they are as an adult dog.


Q. What is the puppy buying process?

A. I will take buyer waitlist enquiries anytime. When a mating takes place anyone that has made a waitlist enquiry, will be sent an email asking if they are still interested in a puppy and a full Application Form is to be filled out. Once a pregnancy is confirmed a non-refundable deposit will need to be paid to hold your pup. The balance will need to be paid in full one week before pup is available to take home. 


Q. Can I meet my puppy before I take it home?

A.  Yes, once pups have had their first vaccinations and they have been allocated, you are welcome to come and meet your pup.


Q. Can I meet my pups parents?

A. You will able to me one parent. Mum. As Kings Labradoodles currently only have females, dads will belong to other breeders, therefore, won't be around when you visit. But information on dad, and a photograph will be available for you to see.

When I think of Meadow the first thing that comes to mind is her warm intelligence. Meadow has always been fast to learn new things. I will often turn to see where she is when I’m busy doing something and she is sitting intensely watching me taking it all in. 

Meadow is bouncy and loves to have fun with her fury siblings, but you’ll find her snuggled up to one of her people when it’s rest time.

Meadow has a cream non-shedding fleece coat.

Charli is our cheeky Caramel girl with beautiful emerald eyes. From the day she came home, she insisted on the most cuddles and to never allow you to leave a room without her being far behind. Going to the toilet on my own is a distant memory. Charli is full of love and affection and constantly has us laughing with her antics. 

Charli loves learning new things, especially if the pay-off is cheese. 

Charli has a non shedding caramel fleece coat.
