WHAT SETS READ'S AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLES APART
We value and strive to achieve greatness in the total dog:
TESTING, DNA, ETHICS & INTEGRITY
We are proud to be producing Puppies with Purpose!
We are a small, in home Australian Labradoodle breeder located in Johnson City, Tn. We are dedicated to producing the finest Multi-generational Australian Labradoodles descending from the original Tegan Park and Rutland Manor bloodlines of Australia. Our focus is to breed quality dogs that are healthy, free from genetic issues with non-shedding, allergy friendly coats, that make great family pets; as well as produce exceptional emotional support, therapy and service dogs.
All of our puppies are raised with their mom in the middle of our home with our three fantastic children, following the Puppy Culture protocols, allowing for the foundation that is critical for developing their amazing gentle and loving temperaments and getting them ready for the world. We have a background in positive reinforcement training and puppy imprinting and have the knowledge to help guide our families. Most of our adult dogs in our program live in trusted amazing guardian homes, to insure they have a wonderful home life, where they will stay when they retire. However, all of our puppies are raised personally by us, in our home. We exceed the rigorous health testing guidelines of both the Australian Labradoodle Association of America, as well as the Australian Labradoodle Club of America, to ensure the highest quality puppy possible. Although our dogs would qualify for the ALCA, ALAA & WALA, we chose to be registered through WALA.
Our mission here at Read's Australian Labradoodles is to strive for excellence in all we do, protect the integrity of Australian Labradoodles by always upholding and exceeding the value of quality over quantity!
"We are committed to protecting the health and well-being of the Australian Labradoodle by not only upholding the Breed Standards and maintaining the integrity of the breed as established by the breed developers in Australia but exceeding the standards. Our goal for the future is to always strive for excellence in our breeding practices in order to maintain the integrity of the breed and protect the Australian Labradoodle now and into the future. "
Our foundation dogs are excellent and have passed all testing, as well as have amazing demeanors. Breed specific Genetic test for all breeding stock have been completed, as well as hip, elbow & patella testing (PennHip, OFA, eVet Diagnostics or AVA) OFA Eye exam (previously CERF), heart and over 15 genetic disease tests from PawPrint Genetics or DDC.
CERTIFIED AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE
Read's Australian Labradoodles is proud to be registered with the Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association (WALA) . "The club were formed by breeders and striving toward “purebred” recognition of the breed. Both clubs recognizes that not all dogs identified as Australian Labradoodles are the "real deal". The certifications are an effort to make clear the identification process available to those interested in purchasing a true Australian Labradoodle. All of our dogs are awarded the WALA Certified Australian Labradoodle
logo have lineage that is traced back to the Australian lines produced by the breed developers (Tegan Park and/or Rutland Manor)." Though our dog would qualify to be registered with all three clubs, we choose to only be registered with WALA.
