There is discussion among breeders on whether AKC recognition and Doodle aesthetic should be a greater focus than training for companion dogs. We strive for a balanced emphasis in both of these categories. However, since the AKC has no care for inbreeding, canine health, breed health and quality of breeders – we are proud to be a part of WALA and ALAA that DOES care about these things. The AKC does not care about the health and quality of the dogs and breeders and thereby encourages people to breed dogs when they have NO business doing so. We will happily stay OUT and AWAY from the AKC and focus on the health, temperament, personalities and aesthetics of our Australian Labradoodles from both American and Australian lines.
