Why an Australian Labradoodle?
Considering a Labradoodle? Despite what you may read they aren't
hypoallergenic" dogs but they are an allergy friendly breed. An
allergy friendly coat is a low to non shedding coat but you could
get a hair or two once in awhile. Most will come out during weekly
brushing, but anything with hair will have some break off. Even we
shed a little!  
Yes they have the most wonderful personalities, these dogs are
easily trained and want most of all to please their human. They are
beautiful, playful, intelligent with many other attributes that make
them the greatest family companions we've seen.

Want to know more? Contact us regarding availability and we'll be
happy to answer any questions you might have while researching
if a Labradoodle puppy or slightly older dog is the right fit for
your family.
