& our own Hale's Such A Player

aka Bruno

Cottonwood's Sunshine

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!

What a joy it is to have Sunshine and her pups here! I think this was the best delivery yet. Not that is was a short one, it wasn't. But Sunshine was relaxed and confident and really required very little assistance from me. She is a great mom and was hesitant initially to leave her babies even for a potty break. Now she is ready to stretch her legs more and enjoys going for a romp in the yard. Sunshine keeps her pups so clean and they are very content. Because there is such a variety in colors, I'm having no difficulty telling each pup apart. I was so excited when the last pup was born as I thought he was black, but as I dried him off I could see he was a very dark chocolate. Gorgeous! Stay tuned for more updates and photos and don't forget to go to our Facebook page where I have posted some videos of Sunshine's precious pups! 

8 Week Update:

The last week with pups was action packed with a visit to Schowalter Villa where all 6 pups got to sit in the laps of the residents living there. The puppies did great, were well received and the residents seemed to really enjoy their visit. Puppy Evaluations happened last Friday and went so well; despite the fact that it was a very long day and a totally new experience for each puppy, including Sunshine. Kelly Spencer, with the Family Dog Training and Behavioral Center did a fabulous job administering the test and her assistant Vera served as scribe, taking thorough notes. My new volunteer Morgan Holopirek took some great video of the testing. We will post some photos and/or video soon and on our Facebook page. The 8 week photos of puppies were taken the night before and then Tuesday each pup was picked up by their new forever families! It is so wonderful to meet each family and to know that our puppies are going to receive the best of care in such loving homes! Makes saying goodbye a little easier.

This litter is fully booked and

all pups have their forever families!

A few of Cottonwood's puppies from the past! 

We are so excited to be having Sunshine Puppies in our home again! She is a character, full of fun and playfulness and is up for any adventure, on ground or riding shotgun for road trips or fishing on the boat. She is also a snuggle bug, whether that’s laying on the bed with you or perched on the back of the couch behind your head where she can get a birds eye view of all the action. Sunshine is smart and never lets her smaller stature prevent her from running just as fast as the other dogs. She has great structure and a beautiful apricot/red soft fleece coat. Sunshine is tested to the Gold and Silver Paw level of ALAA and has fantastic scores and health clearances.

Bruno has the softest chocolate fleece coat and big brown eyes that melt your heart and are so expressive. He’s loving and playful and has won each of our girls over with his confidence and ease. He is tested to the Gold and Silver Paw level like all our girls with excellent health clearances. Bruno knows no strangers His conformation is excellent and he has proven to be one big sweetheart with a lot of love to give. This will be Sunshine and Bruno’s first litter together and we couldn’t be more excited to see what they produce. Puppies should be Mediums in size around 30 to 45 pounds 18-20 inches tall and possible colors include cream, caramel, apricot, chocolate, black and red.
