More About Skyedoodles
Skyedoodles is a small, family breeder of Multi-Generational Australian Labradoodles. My name is Kristen, owner of Skyedoodles. I devote myself to being a full-time professional breeder of these wonderful dogs.
Over seven years ago I purchased my first Australian Labradoodle as a pet, and fell in love with this extraordinary breed. I was fascinated by the fact that Australian Labradoodles have only been bred in this country since the late 1990’s. In 2010 I began my breeding career and started “Skyedoodles”, named for my daughter “Skye”. Skyedoodles is often used by people locally who call or e-mail saying they want a “Skyedoodle”! I am passionate about these dogs and love what I do, so come on out and meet a Skyedoodle. You're sure to fall in love too.

In Victoria, Australia, in 1988, Wally Cochran of The Royal Guide Dogs produced the first litter of Labradoodles. Cochran had a request from a blind woman in Hawaii who needed a guide dog that would not inflame her husband’s allergies. Hair and saliva samples from many poodles were sent to the couple to see if they would cause an allergic reaction, but all of the tests were unsuccessful. Determined to find an answer, Cochran crossed one of the Royal Guide Dog Labs with a Standard Poodle. Three puppies were born, and one of those puppies did not trigger her husband’s allergies. That dog went on to be a tremendous guide dog for the blind woman.
Interest in the Labradoodle began to spread in Australia, and a few breeders began to breed this dog with a specific plan. These Australian breeders infused other breeds with the Labradoodle to help improve the breed’s beauty, health, temperament and boning. The infusion of new bloodlines created the Australian Labradoodle.
There are 5 parent breeds in the Australian Labradoodle. In order for a dog to be considered an “Australian Labradoodle”, he or she must have all of these bloodlines:
• Irish Water Spaniel
• American Cocker Spaniel
• English Cocker Spaniel
• Notify breeder when a female begins her heat cycle

Australian Labradoodle Coat Types
Wool: A Wool coat is soft and thick, with fairly tight curls that are slightly looser than the curls of a poodle. These coats tend to shed the least and are very easy to care for. A good brushing once a week should suffice for this type of coat.
Fleece: A Fleece coat is silky and extraordinarily soft. My daughter collects the hair from one of our Fleece girls and says she is going to send it out to have a sweater made from the amazingly soft hair from our girl, Halle. A Fleece coat sheds a very small amount and can be wavy to loose, soft flowing curls. A Fleece coat may require slightly more grooming, and will need to be cut down a few times a year.
