Our desire to breed Australian Labradoodle puppies was truly born because of a silly-hearted labradoodle named Marley Moo, however my personal exposure to breeding in California started over 30 years ago. I grew up in a family of breeders and from a very young age I was exposed to proper breeding habits, whelping, and the importance of these living, breathing creatures that are under my care. My early exposure to breeding and raising animals not only taught me many life lessons that have stayed with me to this day, but it has taught me that being a part of responsible breeding is truly an honor that we humans have the opportunity to take part in.
We also believe that the decision of bringing an Australian labradoodle (or any dog for that matter) into your home and into your family, is a big decision! Your journey should begin with a quality Australian labradoodle breeder who openly welcomes your questions and concerns. We don’t consider any question to be a silly question and we welcome any and all questions that you may have. Our goal is to place our Australian labradoodle puppies with forever families who will treat them as a member of their family, and to provide exceptional communication and service to our families along the way. All families who have submitted an application and have placed a deposit on a litter are welcome and encouraged to visit our home on the scheduled Puppy Selection days.
I am an accredited member breeder and previous board member of the Australian Labradoodle Association of America (ALAA); a worldwide organization promoting responsible breeding, and maintaining the largest database of Australian Labradoodles and Labradoodles in the world. We continually strive for the highest standards of health testing in all of our breeding dogs, and are proud to be an ALAA Silver Paw and Gold Paw Breeder.
Although many of our Australian Labradoodle puppies go to California cities, such as Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and San Diego, we can still deliver a beautiful Australian labradoodle puppy to your home through our California labradoodle nanny service if you are located outside of the state.
What led us to the Labradoodle breed?
An avid dog lover from the beginning – I have co-existed with dogs from the moment I took my first breath. My mother was a breeder, and naturally dogs and puppies have always been a part of my life, and a true passion for me. The first few years of being married, we did a lot of traveling and it was the first time I lived without a dog! It felt as if something was surely missing. Once the traveling subsided and growing our family was in order, I knew that a dog would shortly follow when the timing was right. However, after giving birth to our second daughter, we quickly realized that she had multiple food and environmental allergies. We quickly came to the conclusion that a dog was just not possible for our family….that is, until we came across the Multigen Australian Labradoodle. It was just a short time later that we brought our Marley Moo home (followed by our sweet PJ just a short time later), and we quickly fell in love!
It’s Truly OUR Pleasure…
We feel fortunate to stand beside our dogs as they repeat the cycle of life and produce quality labradoodle puppies that will bring many families great joy. It is for this reason that we take great pride in our labradoodle breeding program and consider ourselves to be the backdrops in this truly special setting.
Why Choose a Moo Cow Australian Labradoodle?
At Moo Cow Labradoodles, we take our dogs seriously! Our labradoodles are a part of our family and live indoors. Each dog has completed comprehensive health testing and we strive for proper temperament, ability and conformation. More information on our labradoodle breeding dogs, testing, and OFA results can be viewed by visiting the “Our Labradoodles” tab.
What Practices set Moo Cow Labradoodles apart?
– State-of-the-art Puppy Nursery: Our state-of-the-art puppy nursery allows us to ensure that our puppies are consistently surrounded by a clean, safe, and comfortable environment. Equipped with DogTV, heating and cooling, vet flooring, and only the BEST in whelping equipment, the Moo Cow Puppy Nursery is an excellent example of a high-end puppy facility where health is our main priority!
– Excellent Vet Care: We work hand in hand with who we consider to be “The Best Vet in Town”! Our vet ensures that our breeding dogs and puppies are always a step above the rest by ensuring proper vaccination protocols, breed testing, preventative care, and excellent communication to ensure that we are knowledgeable and up to date on the latest health news and vet practices.
– Knowledge and Research: Call us the research junkies, because we research on a daily basis….literally! When we say we take our dogs seriously, we mean it, and it’s more than a passion! Medical research is at the top our list, as well as staying up to date on the latest and greatest in proper breeding practices, whelping, newborn puppy care, nutrition and the overall longevity of our Australian labradoodle puppies. We often frequent vet seminars, including reproduction, genetics, and neonatal seminars presented by research facilities, such as the UC Davis School of Vet Medicine.
An Overall Experience: Adopting your next family member is an exciting time, and your enthusiasm should be met with the same! Although our main goal is to ensure that every one of our Australian labradoodle puppies is placed into a loving and involved “forever” home, we also want our families to be involved in the process even before your Moo Cow puppy is born. From ultrasound pictures and puppy count X-rays, to whelping and newborn pictures that put you right in the “thick of it”, we offer our families an experience unlike any other! Bi-weekly pictures and videos are posted, as well as weekly developmental information to let you know exactly what’s happening with your Moo Cow labradoodle puppy. Once your puppy is old enough, a specific date will be set for our families to visit our facility and select their puppy. Families will continue to get weekly updates and “homework” until the puppies are 8-9 weeks old and ready to go home. Does it get any better than that?
We Truly Care: Many of our Moo Cow family’s can tell you about the “please don’t disappear” speech that we give them to ensure that they stay in touch. But, we really mean it. We have spent 8-9 amazing and wonderful weeks with our puppies, and each one of them takes a piece of our heart with them when they go. Each of our adoptive families becomes a part of our extended Moo Cow family, and there is no greater joy than receiving pictures and updates from our adoptive families. We have been so fortunate that nearly all of our Moo Cow families have kept in touch, and we have built relationships and friendships with the most amazing people! Aren’t we the lucky ones?!?!
Puppy Nanny: Say what? We developed a program a few years back with a few wonderful people who escort our puppies by plane to their new homes. We do not fly our puppies cargo, and our puppy nanny service is the only form of transportation offered by us. I often hear “that must be so expensive”, however with the program we developed, our puppy nanny can personally escort your puppy from our arms to yours for less than the price of a cargo ticket! Go ahead and say it….”That’s AWESOME”!
