A Brief Overview of the Breed

The Australian Labradoodle was founded by the Rutland Manor and Tegan Park Breeding and Research Centers in Australia. Founded in the 1980’s the breed has become well known for its fun-loving nature, non-aggressive and sociable temperament, low to no shedding, allergy friendly coats and the reputation for being the ultimate companion dog. Unfortunately, because of its increasing popularity, some breeders started to change the genetic makeup of the Australian Labradoodle with their own ideas and infusions that were not intended to be part of the original makeup of the breed. Taking action, the breed founders have cultivated the true, original and authentic lineage and gene pool from the breed and developed, what we know today as, The Cobberdog.   Stonewall Manor parents are always been health tested and we strive to produce only healthy puppies. We work to preserve and protect the true nature, lineage, and genetic makeup of this amazing breed.
