We are a small but proud breeder of  the authentic Australian Labradoodle.  If someone had told me years ago that I would have the privilege to become involved in the stewardship of this marvelous breed, I don’t know that I would have believed you.  My primary focus has always been dog training but after two years of research into the breed and an amazing opportunity presented itself…it felt like a natural progression for me. Today, I can say that I have absolutely no regrets and only wish I had encountered the Australian Labradoodle years ago.

Here at Morning Smile Labradoodles, we strive to maintain the authentic Australian Labradoodle qualities: calm sweet nature, deep affection for people and animals of all species, servitude to individuals with challenges and that happy-go-lucky, family friendly companion that has made the authentic Australian Labradoodle a welcomed member to so many homes around the world.  We have a a variety of lines in our breeding program including standards from the original Tegan and Rutland Manor, all of which produce superb puppies.  Although our goal is to maintain our incredible standard ALs, we are excited about the addition of our mini and medium size kids!  They are truly dynamic dogs in a smaller package. Regardless their size, they impress and amaze me every day.

We health check all of our parent dogs for Hips/Elbows, PRA, CERF, and a cardiac check to name a few.  To date, we have had neither reports of Addison’s Disease nor any other genetic health issues in our puppies.  We require all our parent dogs to exhibit the true Australian Labradoodle temperament in addition to good health and breed standard in order to be a part of our breeding program. This is the only way we are able to pass on healthy viable puppies to you, our valued puppy families.

Theo_and_Corbin All of our dogs are pampered members of the family and  live with us.  Cocoa, our resident Queen Bee, rules our house in grace and fairness.  She is a fantastic mentor to every puppy who enters this world through our home. She is also our most reliable bed-warmer.  Our dogs enjoy their lives here on our 15 acre property where they receive more than ample exercise and doggy companionship.  Training sessions are the highlight of the day and they are all so very proud of their successes and acquired skills. We love each and every one of them and strive to provide a fulfilling and enriching life in which they know they are valued and have a job that benefits the humans they love.
