About Stonewall Manor
Hello and Welcome to Stonewall Manor Cobberdogs. My name is Calli Prendergast and I breed service dog level Australian Cobberdogs in my loving home in Northborough Massachusetts. At Stonewall Manor, I share my home and my life with several Cobberdogs.
My love for Australian Cobberdogs can be seen in everything I do. My breeding program includes Australian Cobberdogs from Rutland Manor, the originator of this wonderful developing breed.
I am dedicated to ensuring sound breeding practices, excellence in the puppies we produce and hold the highest standards of excellence. Puppies are whelped in my home with the utmost care and we are devoted to preserving and enhancing this amazing and unique breed. My goal is to produce the finest service, therapy and family companion dogs.
People considering an adoption of one our of puppies must complete an application process.
I am a member of the MDBA.
Origin of The Australian Cobberdog
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 Australian Cobberdog. Traits, temperament, coat, and health are consistent and the club members are all working towards the same common vision. The Master Dog Breeders and Associates (MDBA) is a global registry dedicated to protecting the integrity of the breed as a pure breed in development. Along with the parent club, The Australian & International Australian Cobberdog Club (AIACC), the MDBA members work to stay true to the breed. Our parent dog are health tested and produced only healthy puppies using only the original founder’s lineage. We are members of both the MDBA and AIACC.
Some of the things that sets the Australian Cobberdog apart are:
* Low to no shedding
* Allergy friendly
* No “wet dog” smell, even when wet
* Extraordinary intuition and wisdom (even in young puppies)
* Close connection with human minds
* An intense and natural determination and desire to make human eye contact (starts at about 3 weeks of age)
* Fun, goofy sense of humor
* Unbelievable brilliance, cleverness, and comprehension
* Eager to please and easy to train
* Devoted and loyal, empathizes and responds to human emotions.
