Our dogs are top notch! Many years of development for consistency and superior lines have been invested to be sure your are getting an amazing Australian Labradoodle.   All our dogs come from the original Rutland Manor/Teagan Park lines, are authentic and certified with Australian Labradoodle Club of America. These certifications which enforce proper and rigourous health testing, and certified breeding stock help ensure that your South Mitten Australian Labradoodle puppy is the real deal. Your South Mitten Puppy will have been through Early Neurological Stimulation training as part of our Puppy Culturetraining, started his basic commands with positive rewards/clicker training,  and gotten a great start on potty and crate training. We are dedicated to giving your new puppy every advantage possible to be the best of the best!

Puppy Culture Program: Exceptional breeding stock is a start, but there is so much more to an exceptional puppy. We are pleased to be a part of the Puppy CultureProgram and training to give your puppy an optimal start in life, with the all the opportunity and potential he/she can have. It has been shown that puppies raised utilizing Early Neurological Stimulation as in the Puppy Culture™  program have been proven to have greater resistance to both stress and disease, have stronger heart rates and stronger heart beats along with a stronger adrenal system. Scientific Studies have shown that  animals who are raised in a stimulus rich environment (such as the one we provide), with lots of toys, age-appropriate exercise, and researched-based challenges, have larger brains, with more neuro-connections than animals raised in a stimulus poor environment have.  Furthermore the stimulation actually causes animals to grow up to 5% more brain (and within that 5% more brain, are anywhere from 25 - 200 neuro-connections!) Studies have shown that the area of the brain where these new brain cells form is actually the area related to learning, memory, and emotional response. This is consistent with the findings of scientists that animals raised in enriching environments demonstrate increased learning ability, with better retention, and appear more stable, less fearful and better able to cope with and recover from frightening or stressful situations.  This takes time, dedication and plenty of ongoing research on our part, but we firmly believe that by going above and beyond with each and every puppy, we have the power to shape our puppies' futures to their maximum potential and be a dog that everyone would want to own.


Selection/Pricing: Our dogs are carefully selected so their puppies will have amazing dispositions, superior conformation, and allergy-friendly coats for which the breed was developed and is sought after.  Our goal is to provide allergy -friendly Australian Labradoodle puppies that are healthy, smart, and people-oriented as family pets, as well as potential therapy and dogs.
