We are a small family run operation located in quintessential Northeast CT, situated on just over an acre overlooking Quinebaug Lake. Our love for labradoodles began five years ago with the purchase of Jackson. He was incredibly easy to train, his personality mimics that of a human and he is easy to love.
After years of research and hundreds of emails and phone conversations, Lakeridge Labradoodles began. Our goal is to strive to breed the highest quality Australian Labradoodles, with the health and temperament of our dogs being the utmost importance. Our goal with each litter is to produce service and therapy dog prospects.
We want to pass on our passion and share our love for the breed with other families so they too can fall in love. All of our breeding dogs are very carefully selected and extensively health tested to ensure we are offering the healthiest puppies for your family.
We are a proud member of the Australian Club of America (ALCA) which has the most rigorous standards of any organization. Whether you purchase from Lakeridge Labradoodles or another breeder, we cannot stress enough the importance of purchasing from a breeder affiliated with ALCA. We recommend visiting the ALCA main site and reading the requirements of what it takes to become a breeding member of the organization.
COUNTRY DISTINCTIVE CHARM
Anyone who has met Sugar will tell you they felt an instant connection to her. She will be having one last litter for us this Spring with IvyLane Jumpin Jack Flash "Jack" before she goes into a well deserved retirement. The litter with be all solid dark chocolates ranging between 30-40 lbs. There is a possibility that this litter will contain a mini. Sugar is the epitome of what we want to continue to produce. She is very gentle and children just flock to her and become attached very quickly. She is the perfect size and what we consider to be a small medium. She has enough reach that she is able to get in and out of vehicles, up and down stairs and run and play in our fenced in acre amongst the other dogs. We have thoroughly enjoyed watching her interact with some of our older puppies from her early September litter. Our puppy parents have reported back how wonderful their puppy has acclimated. We attribute this to her calm, easy going temperament.
