Deb - A Sky View Labradoodle
re: Why Breed for Doodles

Circa 1973, the original doodle was the result of a blind woman in Hawaii who needed a guide dog, but her husband was allergic to dogs.
Because neither Hawaii nor Australia has rabies, Aussie pups could circumvent Hawaii's then-six-month quarantine, so a breeder in Australia crossed a poodle and Labrador retriever. Hair samples from all six pups were sent to Hawaii for testing, and the pup who passed the allergy test for the husband was shipped to Hawaii, becoming the first doodle service dog.
Labradoodles to this day excel as service or therapy dogs, in fact of the 24 pups I placed when I was breeding, 6 of them are somehow involved in service or therapy work. I'm also tempted to start visiting a local nursing home with their mother, an active 14 year old and great people-dog, who would be a terrific therapy dog.

    Honest question, why do you, as a doodle breeder, do it? Why do you breed for doodles? What's the goal for your program? Thanks
