Lane’s End Australian Labradoodles
New South Wales, Australia
Hi, I'm Susan G.
We are a small hobby breeder of healthy, happy & handsome authentic Australian Labradoodles, located on the beautiful Central Coast, NSW, Australia. We specialise in hand-raising each of our puppies for the first 9 weeks of their lives to ensure they can transition to a human life with you happily and confidently. At Lane's End we aim to offer you a hand raised, valued family member when you take home a Lane’s End puppy. We do this by focusing on creating a balanced foundation for our puppies that will help them to confidently transition into their human world. Our Australian Labradoodles are multi-generational, meaning they are born with generations of Labradoodles in their pedigree. They are all verifiably authentic. Their pedigrees are thoroughly checked and registered with the World Australian Labradoodle Association (WALA) and pedigree papers and registration with WALA will come with your puppy. Our goal is to continue and improve healthy well balanced lines of Australian Labradoodles for companionship and therapy services.

Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
We adopt the Puppy Culture training guide for raising our pups to help develop emotionally and behaviourally balanced and confident puppies, ready to explore their human environment. From birth, our puppies have continued exposure to handling and new experiences as part of their development. Our pups are raised in the house alongside our other dogs and teenagers, we live on acreage with ducks and chickens. They are desensitised to the…
Our breeding dogs are pedigree checked using an international database of the Australian Labradoodle bloodlines. We DNA test through Orivet for breed-specific disease and also coat and colour gene panels. We test for hip and elbow dysplasia and work closely with our vet, a reproduction specialist. We feed our dogs on high quality kibble, raw beef bones, chicken and rice and ensure our puppies develop a strong and healthy gut. Our dogs…
We live on a coastal acreage and your puppy has a purpose-built nursery in my house. Outside, there are grassy and bushland areas to explore, learn and strengthen. We will be at home with your puppy from birth until you take over.
Included with our puppies
Prior to collection we provide new owners updates on the puppies including photos, vet checks, nutrition and training. We offer ongoing guidance with training, vet records and recommendations, grooming and medical advice, nutrition - giving information on their meal plans, daily routines and home set up advice. Puppies all come microchipped and registered, vaccinated, wormed and I provide a breeder contract with health…

Lane’s End Australian Labradoodles conducts 14 additional tests available for the Australian Labradoodle.
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.
Canine Elliptocytosis is a rare genetic disease causing the red blood cells to be abnormally elliptical in shape, rather than round. It generally does not cause a clinical problem to affected dogs, but puppies may be mildly anaemic and smaller than others. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
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.
Macular Corneal Dystrophy (MCD) is a rare genetic eye disease that has been identified in Labradors. It causes cloudy eyes and potential vision impairment. There is 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.
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, type 1, 2 & 3. Different breeds will be affected by different types of VWD. A DNA test to identify if a breeding dog is a carrier of the disease is available for all three types of VWD.
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
I’m Susan, a high school teacher by trade and a dog owner since age 11. I have experience working alongside people with mental health and have licensed my dogs as assistance dogs and now I look forward to bringing more joy to peoples’ lives through our select breeding practice.
Why we got involved in breeding
Our Labradoodle journey started after our beautiful chocolate Labrador 'Olive' passed. I wanted the enthusiasm and gentle nature of the Labrador without the heavy frame and shedding coat. We found it in the Australian Labradoodle. They are the most eager, inquisitive, human-orientated dogs I have owned in my lifelong time with dogs. Our dream now is to share this amazing breed with you by ensuring we produce healthy, happy, handsome Australian Labradoodles to join your family and bring love, laughs, licks and life.
Our special touch
I consider myself a home/hobby breeder of the Australian labradoodle. All my breeding dogs live with us as our cherished family members and as such I will never have more than one or two litters at any given time. Whilst I am not a large/commercial breeder, I am an active member of the WALA to ensure that my dogs are audited for their health and pedigree to ensure I have high quality dogs to work with. I work very closely with my veterinarian team and follow their advice for the benefit of my dogs and my puppies. I have also studied canine genetics and thoroughly researched data and peer-reviewed papers in the areas of. hip and elbow. dysplasia, early neutering and spaying of dogs and impacts and canine biology ( I like to know, for myself, rather than follow what others do). I individually hand-raise each puppy for the first 9 weeks of its life, using Puppy Culture protocols to guide appropriate training for my little ones. I have found that my puppies are extremely calm and happy with an exuberant outlook on life with their chosen forever families.
