Welcome to Tallai Australian Labradoodles
We focus on miniature to medium sized labradoodle puppies. Health and temperament are the main priorities in our breeding programme followed closely by the easy care and low maintenance fleece or loose wool coat types.
We mostly have pups in chocolate, cafe and lavender though don't despair if these are not your preferred colours, as we sometimes have caramel, creme caramel, parchment, cream, black and gold. More information on coat types and colours is available on the important stuff page.
Breeding and Puppy Environment
We are not a kennel.Only one dog resides with us - Mickey (he is the chocolate dog in the photo on the set of "The Shak" at 9's studio in Brisbane). Our current and potential breeding dogs are all family pets living with selected guardian families (they are placed with their family from 8 weeks of age and remain with them after retirement). All puppies are raised by us with the assistance of our two children. We strongly believe it is important that puppies are raised in an environment where they are exposed from day one to the sights, smells and sounds of busy family life, as this is the life that they will enter when they leave our care for yours. All of our dogs need to prove themselves first and foremost as valued and loveable members of our guardian families, then secondly pass the Australian Labradoodle Association of Australia's mandatory health testing before we will consider breeding from them. We typically have 1-2 litters from our girls. Occasionally a very special girl might have three litters.
Located in Queensland (QLD) Australia
We are located in the Gold Coast Hinterland, Queensland (Qld), Australia.Only an hours drive from the Brisbane Airport and 45 minutes from the Coolangatta / Tweed Heads Airport. Many of our puppies fly from here to as far a field as Perth, Western Australia (WA), Sydney, New South Wales (NSW) and Melbourne, Victoria (VIC).
Australian Labradoodle Association (A.L.A.)
We are members of the Australian Labradoodle Associationand bound to their code of ethics, this includes health testing of all our breeding dogs as well as the early de-sexing of all companion puppies who are not retained for breeding purposes. In fact we now exceed the health testing requirements of the club. Having held various positions on the ALA, if you have a labradoodle and are considering breeding, then I am only to happy to answer questions about the club, its goals and breeding in general before formally handing you over to the current breeder contact representative.
So once again welcome to our site - There is lots to see from photographs of current puppies for sale to a section on colour genetics and interesting links for you to explore. We welcome feedback and are only to happy to promote the Australian Labradoodle.
