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.
Blossom and Bruno's pups go to forever homes!
Well the last week with puppies was a whirlwind. Tuesday we visited the nursing home Schowalter Villa and all 9 pups got to sit in the resident’s laps and be loved on and fed yummy treats! To say a good time was had by all is an understatement; hope to post photos soon from the day. Thursday we traveled to Valley Center for the APET Puppy Evaluations with Certified Dog Trainer Kelly Spencer at the Family Dog Training and Behavioral Center. The brief slide show below shows Kelly working with each pup to gain their trust (since she is a complete stranger to them) and then taking them through the obstacle course. There are 30 some Behavioral Traits assessed through this APET testing created by AVIDOG and it is such an amazing process! The puppies always seem to surpass my own expectations for navigating this new experience, not to mention the challenge of the 45 minute car ride down to the training center and back. Not one pup got car sick!
Then this past Sunday all 9 families came to pick up their sweet puppies. It’s always bitter-sweet as I’ve spent almost every waking moment for the past 8 weeks with these pups. Each one is amazing and unique just as the families that come to take them to their forever homes are amazing and unique! It is quite the privilege to get to do what I do and to see the look on the faces of the families who have waited and dreamed of getting their new family companion. Thank you Cottonwood Labradoodle Families for making these puppies a valued family member!
Next litter is planned for Spring of 2018!

& our own Hale's Such A Player
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!
