Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
We follow the Puppy Culture model, an internationally recognised program for making the first weeks of life count and ensuring life-long confident, well-adjusted dogs. All puppies are put through a bio-sensory and Early Scent Introduction program during the first three weeks and at week six are temperament-tested to ensure they will be happy in the environment they will be placed into at nine weeks old. Our puppies are given an extensive…
Prior to breeding, all parents are health tested with an Orivet Full Breed DNA Profile to ensure they are not positive to genetic diseases common to the Labradoodle. They are also tested for hip and elbow dysplasia and osteoarthritis through both PennHIP and the Orthopaedic Foundation for Animals.
Our puppies are raised within the home, are loved, cuddled, spoken to - sometimes sung to :) and are included in our lives as much as possible. They watch the ebb and flow of the household daily to condition them for when they arrive at their new home. They have three enclosures - bedroom (their own), outdoor grassed play pen (for sporting activities) and deck area (for late afternoon catch ups and bar-b-ques). They may also (if…

With Aamberdell, you will have life-time support - we are just a call away and happy to answer any questions - no question is a silly one. We are determined to make the transition for the puppy as smooth as it can be, so there is a short novel (9 pages) :) of puppy notes to help you along the way. We feel strongly about grooming and ensuring the pup has no painful knots and matts so have added a slicker brush and comb with rotating pins…

Aamberdell Australian Labradoodles conducts 16 additional tests available for the Australian Labradoodle.
Centronuclear myopathy (CNM), is a genetic muscle disease that occurs in Labradors. A DNA test is available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome (CMS) is genetic disease that causes extreme muscle weakness after just a short amount of exercise. It can result in puppies or dogs who collapse after only five to thirty minutes of exercise. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
This condition mainly affects Newfoundlands although other breeds can be affected. It is a genetic condition which results in the production of kidney and bladder stones. There is a DNA test available to confirm that breeding dogs are not carrying this condition.
This is a disease affecting the spinal cord of older dogs, initially causing wobbliness and eventually hindlimb paralysis. It can affect a wide range of breeds. There is now a DNA test that can indicated if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) is a genetic condition mainly affecting Retrievers and Spaniels. It results in the dog collapsing after periods of intense exercise, even if they are normally able to cope with lower levels of exercise. There is a DNA test available which can indicate if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
These breeders have had x-rays taken on their breeding dogs to assess the quality of their elbow joints. Dogs with very low ‘elbow scores’ are less likely to develop elbow problems in the future and less likely to pass hereditary elbow problems on to their puppies.
Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis (HNPK) is a genetic condition that can affect Labradors. It causes very dry and crusty skin around the nose that predisposes to infections. There is a DNA test available to determine whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
Hyperuricosuria (HUU) is a genetic disease that causes a build-up of uric acid in the urine, predisposing to painful bladder and kidney stones. It can occur in a range of breeds. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) is a rare genetic condition that causes adverse reactions to anaesthetic drugs. It results in the body rapidly overheating and is sometimes fatal. There is now a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
Mucopolysaccharidosis is a genetic lysosomal storage disease that can cause various problems including stunted growth and bone deformities. There are a few different variants of this disease that have been identified in different breeds. For many breeds there are DNA tests available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying the condition.
Narcolepsy is a genetic disease which causes affected animals to fall asleep suddenly following periods of excitement, such a feeding or play. These dogs might collapse and appear drowsy or might completely fall asleep. They usually grow out of the condition after about one year of age. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
Neonatal Encephalopathy (NE) is a brain disease that can occur in Standard Poodle puppies. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency (PKD) is a genetic disorder resulting in low levels of an energy-producing enzyme in the body. Affected dogs can experience lethargy, exercise intolerance and severe anaemia. There is a DNA available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
Skeletal Dysplasia is an inherited form of dwarfism which causes the leg bones to grow much shorter than is proportional for the body. Affected legs will be short and slightly bowed outwards. Often the forelimbs are more affected than the hindlimbs, which can make the condition more difficult to spot in subtle cases. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
Von Willebrand’s Disease (VWD/vWD) is a genetic bleeding disorder caused by a lack of a specific clotting factor. There are three forms of the disease, types 1, 2 & 3. A DNA test is available for each type of VWD to identify whether a breeding dog is a carrier or might be affected. The severity of VWD varies widely between breeds and individuals, ranging from life threatening, through to having no impact on clotting ability.
X-linked myotubular myopathy (XLMTM) is an inherited muscle disease causing severe, progressive muscle atrophy in puppies. Affected puppies are small and lack coordination. Within weeks, the puppies may have difficulty holding their head up or standing and may collapse after exertion. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog might be carrying this condition.
About the Breeder
A little about us
As with most dog lovers, our love affair with dogs started at a young age. Big ones, small ones, pedigrees, bitsers. They included Poodles and a much-adored Labrador. In 2016, we said goodbye to our beautiful 'Bailey the Beagle' after 16 wonderful years, so the search for a new pup to join our family began. We stumbled across the Labradoodle and instantly fell for this amazing breed. With all the wonderful traits of both the Poodle and Labrador, we were in love – again. We joined a guardian program and received guardianship of our wonderful Charlie Brown, a multigenerational Labradoodle. We watched with interest the depth of affection, care and science that goes into the breeding of these wonderful animals. When the opportunity arose to raise a litter, we couldn’t wait to start a new and exciting learning curve. After doing this a few times, we knew that we had been caught by the heart, and we bought our first breeding girl - Abby-May.
Why we got involved in breeding
Caught by the heartstrings by these little pups, we love them with a passion and to be the first human hands to touch, love and shape them is our idea of heaven. We love to see the happy faces of the new families and the appreciation for the start in life that their new pup has had fills us with pride and contentment. Love my life!
Our special touch
Our puppies are loved from the moment they are born and this shows through in the happy, relaxed and well-adjusted pups we send off into the world. Our love for them is our special touch. You can't beat love.
