Our mission is to raise puppies with individualized care, with a focus towards preserving the health and loving temperament of the Australian Labradoodle. We are member breeders of the ALAA (Australian Labradoodle Association of America), an organization diligent in upholding the integrity of the breed and requires genetic testing of all breeding dogs. All our puppies are born in our home and when older, have access to our five acres of woods, prairie and pond.We assist with every delivery and therefore handle each pup from the time they are born. We find this individualized attention and stimulation creates dogs that are better socialized, more intelligent and physically healthier. This care and supervision of puppies is my passion!

Welcome to Cottonwood Labradoodles. We are a small breeder located in the heartland of America, 30 minutes north of Wichita and 2.5 hours south of Kansas City otherwise known as Hesston, Kansas. It is a pleasure and a passion to provide a breeding program of Australian Multi-Generation Labradoodle’s.
We are proud to be ALAA member breeders receiving Gold and Silver Paw Rewards for surpassing the basic recommendations for health testing by the Australian Labradoodle Association of America. Please click on the Gold and Silver Paw emblem for further description of the health testing we do for our breeding program.
We are thrilled to announce our first litter with our new stud ‘Hales Such a Player aka Bruno’ and our sweet Honey! This will be Honey’s first litter as well, so we are breaking new ground here at Cottonwood. Honey is the daughter of our wonderful, now retired Violet and has a beautiful, wavy light caramel fleece coat. She IS as sweet as honey, has excellent confirmation and the most mesmerizing amber eyes! Never met a stranger and loves to cuddle as well as race with other dogs, ride shotgun for trips to town, or even long drives to Colorado. Honey is a true ‘watch dog’ as she can often be found perched on the toy box by our wall of windows spotting the wildlife on our 5 wooded acres. She has the best temperament and is the example of what an Australian Labradoodle should be.
Our newest addition; the most handsome stud muffin, Hales Such a Player aka ‘Bruno’, comes all the way from California and Hale’s Australian Labradoodles. He was the perfect travel companion on our 2 ½ day drive from California to Kansas, and we bonded as if we had known each other a lifetime. A proven stud with a loving, playful nature, excellent conformation, and luscious chocolate fleece coat, we know Bruno will make a wonderful addition to our program. He has already surpassed our expectations by transitioning smoothly to the Cottonwood Ranch where he finds his own harem filled with lovely ladies who have welcomed him with open paws! Bruno is quite the cuddle bug himself yet has taken the game of fetch to a whole new level of competition. Thank you Heather Hale, President of ALAA for entrusting us with this happy-go-lucky guy. Bruno has surely put a smile on all the faces of our Cottonwood family.
With any breeding at Cottonwood Labradoodles Mother Nature is always playing her part. It can sometimes mean that timing of a heat cycle or expected litter doesn’t go as planned. We will make every effort to breed accordingly and produce the color and size litter in a timely fashion when possible. We reserve first right to retain breeder potential puppies and accept 5 deposits per litter. Our wait lists fill up quickly so please fill out the application under Request a Puppy if you are interested in a pup from Cottonwood Labradoodles. Thank You.
FUTURE LITTER UPDATE: April 27, 2016.
Our next breeding will be with Sunshine and Bruno. Mother Nature dictates this so just waiting for Sunshine to come in heat, which should be any day now. We will announce when this happens and then accept deposits from approved applications. Please refer back to our website or Cottonwood Facebook page for future updates.
Honey and Bruno are the proud parents of 8 puppies!
Born on Monday, Jan. 4th; they had 1 cream boy, 3 caramel boys and 1 caramel girl, 2 chocolate boys and 1 chocolate girl.
Honey did great, she's an amazing Mom and all pups are nursing well and gaining. We love all their colors and the sweet sounds of puppy murmurs. Hats off to Mr. Bruno for more than getting the job done. And thank you Heather Hale for entrusting Hales Such A Player 'Bruno' to our Cottonwood family!
This litter is now fully booked. Please watch for upcoming litters to be announced in the near future!
