All of our Cottonwood Honey and Desert Winds Joy in the Journey puppies have gone to their forever homes!

Yellow Boy now ‘Finley’ has found his forever home with this lovely lady Pamela Putnam Peters! Pam is absolutely the best; we had so much fun having our own adventures (swimming on a snowy day!) and catching up late into the night, (she’s a repeat customer). 😊  Pam flew all the way from Florida for this sweet guy and has made it home safely with him; reporting he was absolutely perfect on the whole trip!  Finn joins Pam’s husband Ken, and fur babies Blanca and Cottonwood’s Jodi-Peters; oh the fun they will have! Good boy Finley, we love you dearly and know you will make us proud. 💛

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.

Honey is as close as you get to perfection in the Labradoodle world with her wonderfully sweet temperament and gentle ways. She is a Medium in size with a beautiful caramel fleece coat and amber eyes that will melt your heart. She is playful and fun loving but most of all she is the best companion we could ever hope for. A wonderful mother, Honey has produced beautiful pups for us with winning personalities. This is our first mating with our new stud Journey and I am so excited to see the puppies he’ll help produce! Journey is the total package with his great confirmation and stunning Red fleece coat. He is a rascal; full of fun and adventure and turns heads everywhere he goes with his beautiful red color. He can run like the wind and retrieves like a pro. Journey has never met a stranger and eagerly enjoys meeting new people and other dogs. He is presently in training to be a Therapy Dog by his Guardian Julie and family and taking classes with Certified Dog Trainer Kelly Spencer. Journey is the perfect size Australian Labradoodle at 30 pounds and will be a wonderful addition to our Cottonwood family.

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!

Introducing our up and coming stud Desert Winds Joy in the Journey! Journey has passed all his health testing to ALAA Gold Standard and we are so excited for his future contribution to the Cottonwood Labradoodle family.

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!
