The Labradoodle is a cross between a Labrador and a Poodle. The Poodle is renowned for its high intelligence and non shedding wool. The Labradoodle inherits the most desirable characteristics of it's forbears, with the smart placid easy going nature of a Labrador & the intelligence of a Poodle which has a wool coat and is hypo allergenic. We use proven pedigree parents to ensure our dogs are free of genetic disorders. Life expectancy is 12 - 16 years.
Valley View True Labradoodles
We are one of the rare Labradoodle breeders that still
breed True/Real Labradoodles. Our Labradoodles only have
Labrador and Poodle DNA, there are no other breeds are mixed into our
Labradoodle lines. At Valley View we don't take short cuts by adding Spoodles, Cocker
Spaniels, Golden Retrievers, Wheaton Terriers etc to get different
colours or sizes of Labradoodles. It has taken us 18 years of quality
breeding to get non shedding Parti Labradoodles, Toy Labradoodles etc
and it is done by persistence, not by using other breeds or taking short
cuts for a quick dollar. A lot of Labradoodle association breeders have
allowed and used several different types of dog breeds in their lines of
Labradoodles. By adding all these different breeds (Irish Water Spaniel,
Curly Coat Retriever, American Cocker Spaniel, English Cocker Spaniel,
Wheaton Terrier, Portuguese Water Dogs, Spoodles, Groodles and other breeds they don't tell
you about) into their Labradoodles they have added all the different
genetic problems of each breed into their lines.
A True/Real Labradoodle has only Labrador and Poodle DNA and nothing
else in it's breeding, that is what a Labradoodle should be. What is
generally known as an "Australian Labradoodle" is really a mix of many
breeds, which is not necessarily desirable.
There are 4 sizes of Labradoodles we breed.
We specialize in chocolate and parti Labradoodles but also breed
white, cream, golden, black, silver, cafť, phantom and caramel Labradoodles. We are the first
parti Labradoodle breeders in Australia. Labradoodles eyes are coloured
from dark brown to a golden hazel.
Labradoodles are the ultimate family companion, loving
and kind with children, intelligent with adults, patient and devoted to
the elderly and are sociable with other animals. Labradoodles are always
eager to accompany you for a walk or bike/horse riding but are equally as
happy receiving pats or snoozing close to you. Running, fetching the ball,
swimming, cuddles and stretching out for a nap are some of their favourite
The first Labradoodle litter was bred in Australia in 1989
by the Guide Dogs Victoria (GDV) who were looking for a non shedding guide
dog for a woman named Pat Blum who had lived with a vision impairment but
had not applied for a Guide Dog because of her husband Rich's allergy to
dogs. When GDV agreed to breed the first litter of Labradoodles in an attempt
to lessen the likelihood of allergic reactions, Pat was overjoyed.
