Registered Breeder of the Authentic Multi-Gen, "Australian Labradoodle"
~ Located Near Wingham, Ontario ~
Bluevale Meadows is co-owned by my husband and I, on a little country acre near Wingham Ontario.
Aproximately 2 hours west of Toronto. We have always had a couple of dogs in our home. Along with a cat or two. They are our "Fur-kids". Growing up in midwestern Ontario, I helped my mom with raising/breeding and grooming Bichon Frise's. Always wanting a "bigger" dog, was led to the F1 Labradoodles. After having a couple of these fun loving "clown" dogs, first Bailey and now Scotch, was introduced to the "Multi-gens" by an Aunt and simply fell in love with them. We now proudly own our Lily and are are anxiously awaiting her second litter.
Mocha is our second female pup (one kept from Lily) who is going through all the puppy growing pains and well on her way to being a beautiful breeder in our line of doodles. Her puppies are expected to be small mediums in size. We hope to have her first litter in late spring of 2019!
A brief history of the differences in doodles and what is now known as the Australian Cobberdog.
In 1989, Wally Conron of the Royal Guide Dog Association of Australia produced the first known litter of Labradoodle pups in response to a visually-impaired women’s need for an allergy-friendly dog (due to her husband’s allergies). In response to the request, 33 samples of poodle hair and saliva were sent to the couple to see if the poodles would cause an allergic reaction to the husband’s allergies; all of the poodle samples sent still bothered his allergies.
Conran decided to cross a Standard Poodle with a Labrador. Coat and saliva samples from the three pups in the Poodle and Labrador litter were sent to the Hawaiian couple for trial. One of the three samples was allergy-friendly. The allergy-friendly dog, Sultan, was then trained to become the service dog for the blind woman. Sultan was not only a service dog, but also the beloved family companion of the couple.
After Conran’s initial efforts and to advance the breed farther, Tegan Park and Rutland Manor in Australia began breeding Labradoodles. These pioneers were determined to produce litters with consistent conformation, coat type, and temperament. As a result, a number of other dog breeds were bred into the Labradoodle lines: Irish Water Spaniel, Curly Coat Retriever, American and the English Cocker Spaniel.
The Australian Labradoodle is now considered to be a cross between the Poodle, Cocker Spaniel and Labrador Retriever, while the Labradoodle is a cross between the Labrador Retriever and Poodle only.
The True Australian Labradoodle consitently produces allergy friendly coat types as well as exceptional temperments. Rutland Mannors (AKA Rutlands Australian Cobberdogs) is now known today to have successfully transformed their lines into a recognized breed known as the "Australian Cobberdog". We are proud to have bloodlines in close proximety to these wonderfully tempermented, affectionate, loving, wise companion & family dogs.
