Choosing your Breeder
Hi everyone ..sorry this is a long one....
Lots of you are members of Australian Labradoodle groups and pages on Facebook. There has been a numerous posts over the last few days asking for Breeder recommendations..which is great.. but a few have mentioned the Official UK list of breeders. Or official UK association.
I know that it can feel like a minefield if you don't know enough info.
I’ll start by saying. There is no official UK breeders list, organisation or association. Its really down to what you are looking for in a breeder. UK Groups Clubs, Organisations and Associations are just groups of breeders whom have come together.
Myself and two other breeders set up the ALAUK. Unfortunately the ALAUK didn’t meet my expectations. Myself another founder member and an additional 2 breeders have now left the ALAUk. I’m pleased to say that We are all members of Wala an official world wide Australian Labradoodle Association
The Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association (WALA) vision was conceived and developed by a passionate, diverse group of individuals. These Founders recognized the need for an Australian Labradoodle breed association that is member-driven, operating with democratic principles. Promoting mutual respect, education, communication and integrity, WALA’s goals include enhancing the temperament, health, coats and structure of the Australian Labradoodle breed. Guiding our beloved breed to the highest potential. Wala check every health test, Every pedigree. They insist on and check that their members we follow a strict protocol. There isn’t a UK association or group that does that.
