Why Rockford Labradoodles
Our goal is to ethically produce quality, genetically sound, healthy Labradoodles as family companions with lovely temperaments and non-shedding coats….and never compromise the wonderful qualities of this amazing breed.
Our small amount of breeding dogs live in loving guardian family homes as their pets (not in kennels) allowing them to be the beautiful companions they were bred to be. Extensive health testing is performed on all our breeding dogs to ensure they are genetically sound to breed from. At a minimum, we test for Hip and Elbow Dysplasia, PennHIP and DNA using Orivet.
Our puppies are born and raised in our home. They’re handled from their very first day and, age appropriately, exposed to various sounds, textures, people and environmental stimuli. Our family and friends are always happy to help socialise our puppies.
New puppy owners are welcome to visit and meet their allocated puppy when they are 6 weeks of age and collect their puppy in person at 8 weeks of age. To help protect our puppies, we are not open to visitors considering a puppy, as young unvaccinated puppies are susceptible to diseases.
We’re very confident with the selection of dogs we breed with so each Rockford Labradoodle puppy comes with a 2- year Genetic Health Guarantee and Temperament Guarantee.
As a proud member of the Australian Labradoodle Association (ALA), Rockford Labradoodles are bound to all the standards, Code of Ethics and Rules and Regulations set out by this association.
How It All Started
My love for Australian Labradoodles developed as soon as I started working for Australian Lions Hearing Dogs as their Breeding Coordinator.
I purchased my first Australian Labradoodle, Bruno, and quickly decided that I needed to share my love for these amazing dogs with others! I started my own breeding program and am very fortunate to be supported and mentored by two very well-respected Australian Labradoodle breeders in Adelaide and Brisbane.
They're intelligent, fun, loyal, and loving companion dogs, with absolutely beautiful temperaments. These attributes make for the perfect family companion!
They're available in various colours and sizes. Their coats vary from fleece to wool and are low to non-shedding, making them perfect for people with allergies.
