The Australian Cobberdog is not an Australian Labradoodle with a new name.

Cobberdog Puppies for Sale Australian Labradoodle DifferenceThe Australian Cobberdog, raised from the ashes of the Australian Labradoodle, was founded and developed by the Rutland Manor and Tegan Park Breeding and Research Centers in Australia.  Since its origination and development, which continued into the early 2000s, the world has fallen in love with this breed that has become well-known for its excellent temperament, soundness of form, allergy and asthma-friendly coats, and all over “adorableness.”Some may want to know why we say “raised from the ashes of the Australian Labradoodle.” Simply put, the Australian Labradoodle as we knew it, developed over 30+ years ago for its’ special characteristics and purpose, no longer exists. Due to the increase in backyard breeders wanting to capitalize on the popularity of the Labradoodle name, also known by other names including “Australian Labradoodle,” “multi-gen Australian Labradoodle,” or “authentic Australian Labradoodle,” some breeders started infusing outside lines and

Some may want to know why we say “raised from the ashes of the Australian Labradoodle.” Simply put, the Australian Labradoodle as we knew it, developed over 30+ years ago for its’ special characteristics and purpose, no longer exists. Due to the increase in backyard breeders wanting to capitalize on the popularity of the Labradoodle name, also known by other names including “Australian Labradoodle,” “multi-gen Australian Labradoodle,” or “authentic Australian Labradoodle,” some breeders started infusing outside lines and other cross–breeds to create a more “designer” look without concern for its effects on health, temperament, allergy and asthma-friendly coats, and the characteristics that make them excellent therapy and service dogs.  As a result, the Labradoodle has lost the consistency of its traits with the infusion of Cockapoo, Shih-poo and other unproven lines, which have altered the temperament, health and other characteristics of the Australian Labradoodle as we have known it.  It truly is a shame that this confusion has only been deepened as Australian Labradoodle clubs and breed registries,  through their own personal agendas,  chose not to protect the integrity and carry out the vision of the breed developed by the founders.  Instead, they formed their own ideas, made their own rules and even changed the breed standard according to their own personal ideals.  Sad.

Our Mission has always been to stay true to the Breed Founder’s vision for the Breed by using authentic lines from the Founders themselves developed over decades with the reputation of producing those characteristics that are the hallmark of the breed. The culmination of these practices is the development of the Australian Cobberdog, a pure dog breed in development which is now arising out of the ashes of the Australian Labradoodle and is on its way to purebred status.
