  • Desexing
    We do not routinely desex puppies at an early age, because current data indicates that it can at times lead to health issues for developing puppies, but as a requirement of the sale, you must be willing to sign a desex contract and commit to have the dog desexed between the ages of 5 and 9 months. When this is done at the appropriate age and with documentation from your veterinarian, we will refund $200 on all full priced puppies sold. ($4200)
  • Health Standards of our DARLING Parents
    Our extensive health-screening of all potential Parents serves as the foundation for our breeding program. We screen for both elbow and hip dysplasia while using data on each dog from the OFA - Orthopaedic Foundation for Animals and PennHIP. As well as these tests we also do DNA testing through Orivet Australia for hereditary traits. We aim for quality in all facets of our breeding programme, for both our puppies and for our DARLING Guardian dogs that make up our breeding Program. We are honoured to be WALA members and dedicated to upholding their code of conduct and breed standards to make sure we are contributing to the development of this DARLING species.
  • Breed history
    In the 1970's The Australian Guide Dog Association started a breeding and research programme in the aim of producing a dog that was allergy-friendly. This was the beginning of the multigenerational Australian Labradoodle that we are familiar with today. The Labrador Retriever and Standard Poodle that went into creating this Australian Labradoodle, were originally separate breeds. To produce what are also referred to as "multi-generation" Labradoodles, dogs from the Australian cross were bred to one another for several generations. The Australian Labradoodle we have now is the result of decades of careful breeding. Tegan Park and Rutland Manor strategically incorporated traits from various breeds into their Labrador Retriever/Poodle crosses to achieve the breed's stable temperament and coat. This involved utilizing breeds such as the Irish Water Spaniel, Curly Coat Retriever, American and English Cocker Spaniel, among others. To maintain the Australian multi-generational lines, dogs from these infusions were crossed. Today, the Australian Labradoodle is a testament to the success of this breeding process. Labradoodles come in different sizes (mini-medium-standard), and the average life expectancy of a well-bred Australian Labradoodle is 12-14 years.
  • Temperament
    Darling Australian Labradoodles make ideal pets for both new and experienced dog owners, as well as for families. They are intelligent, perceptive, sociable, joyful creatures that strive to please. When given the opportunity to run around and play, they are spirited, yet when it's time to relax, they have a gentle calming disposition. Our puppies get along well with kids, and they can become excellent therapy dogs because they are so smart, trainable, non-aggressive, and human-centric.
