There are no associations or clubs that can officially govern the labradoodle breed and it is highly unlikely that labradoodles will be recognised by the UK Kennel Club in the foreseeable future. I do, however, feel it is important that breeders adhere to a set of breeding standards in order to improve the future of labradoodles in the UK.
- All our dogs are fully health tested with extremely good results.
- Our dogs are a very important part of our family and our litters will be born and raised in our family home.
- We would never place dogs with foster families, as fostering carries both welfare and ethical issues.
- We would never early spay or neuter (ESN) our pups.
- Dogs sired by our stud dog will not be early spayed or neutered.
- All potential new puppy families will be rigorously vetted and we reserve the right to refuse to let families have a pup at our discretion.
- We will always try to match the puppy with their new family, as careful selection at this stage should prevent the need for any pups to be rehomed at a later date.
- We always offer lifetime support.
- We are not commercial breeders and therefore do not usually have more than one litter a year. However, we know many of the reputable breeders in the UK and may be able to help you find a puppy.
- Our aim is to breed healthy, happy labradoodle puppies that have excellent temperaments.
It is important to recognise no dog can be described as being hypoallergenic. People's allergies are not necessarily due to the dog's coat and can be triggered by a wide range of allergens. These can include the saliva, skin, dander and even the dog's urine.
Dander is airborne and can be inhaled, thereby causing an allergic reaction, ie itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing and wheezing. If you react to the dog's saliva or urine it is unlikely you will ever find a dog you do not have a reaction to.
You may find you are not affected by a labradoodle pup as small puppie, but when the coat changes in adulthood this could then cause a bad allergic reaction. Obviously this would be tragic for you and also tragic for the puppy you have grown to love as they would have to be rehomed.
It is therefore important for you to meet both parent dogs when considering offering a home to a pup.
All our dogs are fully health tested with excellent results.
