What We Breed


It takes many generations of careful selection to arrive at the coat, conformation and disposition of the multi-generation Australian Labradoodle. These labradoodles are as low shed as a dog can be and are allergy friendly.  


This is the labradoodle we choose to breed.


The breeding of an ALD is never done, however. We believe in genetic diversity because it brings vigor, good health, to the breed. We constantly bring in new blood lines to ensure genetic vigor in our lines.





Australian Labradoodles are friendly, happy, loyal, playful , affectionate, intuitive and intelligent.

They should be happy and energetic when free, then gentle and quiet when handled or resting. They are easy to train.

Orginally bred as an allergy friendly service dog, labradoodles make excellent companion dogs and are used as therapy dogs. Our dogs bring calm and peace to many. Besides greeting famlilies with a wagging tail after a tough day, they calm austistic children, visit the sick and lonely, cuddle with a child learning to read, and many other heroic tasks.

Labradoodle Care 

To ensure tangle free hair, all labradoodles should be brushed 20 minutes per week. Initially, use a slicker brush, one layer at a time, and then a detangler comb. Shorter coats require less grooming. A full groom every 2 months.


Clean the ears weekly with a good ear cleaner that includes a drying agent. Squirt the cleaner in the ear and wipe with a cotton ball. This helps prevent ear infections. Also clean the ears after bathing or swimming.


The Labradoodle will require daily exercise as well as play time in order to be happy and healthy. With their love of people, the labradoodle does best living inside as a part of the family.


Labradoodles  come in three different sizes.  Measuring should take place from the floor to the top of the shoulder. Because the labradoodle can be naturally thin or stocky, the weights can vary.

50-65 lbs.

Health testing labradoodle



Extensive genetic testing is conducted on each Coastal Labradoodle breeding dog. Hip and elbow x-rays are screened by the OFA for hip displasia. Eyes are examined by a verinary opthamologist. Patellas and heart are checked. The dogs DNA is also tested for inherited disease common in the labradoodles.


Only the dogs that pass our rigorous testing standards, which includes good temperatment, coat and conformation, are bred. are


 Each puppy is vet checked and given first round of core vaccines.




To the right is a chart showing how a healthy dog should be more square in structure. Ethical labradoodle breeder keep this healthy struction in mind when breeding. However, since genetic diversity and introducing new blood lines is also important, it is not possible to have both all the time. 

Below are two Coastal Labradoodle puppies with ideal conformation.

        Textures                 Patterns

Labradoodle allergy friendly coats are lush and low to non-shedding. They can be free flowing or curly.

They can be fleece or wool in texture.



The Fleece coat texture is light and silky, similar to an Angora goat. This coat can range from loosely waved to a more curly wave. 




Wool coats are more dense to the touch and feel like a sheep's wool. Curls are springy.  To keep the wool coat long and flowing requires more maintenance. The wool coat looks beautiful cut shorter and is easier to maintain.

Curly fleece labradoodle


Snow came to us from another breeder.

She was so sweet and gentle, like a cuddly teddy bear.

This is what curly fleece looks like brushed out

We lived on a ranch and one day she wandered off...

We even searched in town 

From a distance, we thought we'd found her...

On a closer look....

It was a goat!

 Snow was waiting for us our front porch when we arrived home.

We hugged and kissed her moppy fleeced self!

She told us her adventure

The thougsand burrs told us she had wandered far....

Two emptied water bowls told us she had wandered long.....

We began to brush her, but she told us no!

So we got out the clippers and shaved her down.
