​Ruby has been bred! Our beautiful and fun loving Ruby honeymooned with Stud-master Journey earlier this fall. We are expecting puppies December 22nd. This will be Ruby’s first litter and we are so excited to see her puppies with Journey! Puppies will be Mediums in sizes 30 to 40 pounds with wavy to curly fleece coats in colors of caramel, apricot, cream, and possibly red. Both Ruby and Journey are fun loving, athletic, snuggle masters, love people and other dogs. We will accept a few more deposits from approved applications.

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.​

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!

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!
