Hi I’m Jana Garvin and welcome to our extended labradoodle family. I’m a stay at home mom here in Central Texas. In 2014 we wanted to have a family dog but also wanted to have all the great qualities that we have come to see the labradoodle breed has. It was then that we decided to embark on a family adventure. Just to take a moment I would like to introduce my whole family.
My husband Josh is a passionate family man who takes his role as a father and provider very seriously, so without him this new undertaking would not be possible. I now have 5 kids and have always enjoyed the outdoors and animals. My oldest is Jeffrey who helps me out with most of the maintenance of our dogs and other farm animals. Then there’s Jadon who just turned nine as he’s still learning the ropes.
Faith my oldest daughter is always compassionate to try to train the dogs even though she’s only 7 years old 🙂 and then last but not least we have the mischievous Anayah who just turned a big 4 and is more then willing to help the dogs get in trouble 🙂
We are the only seller of Australian Labradoodles black & chocolate puppies in Waco, Texas. As a child I always loved dogs and with only having one older sister I found myself many times playing with my dog or kittens as they became my best friends. I stay pretty busy having four children, homeschooling and all the other activities that you can imagine a child can be involved in while still maintaining a small farm here in Central Texas. I have a deep appreciation for these dogs and believe they have the ability to emotionally meet some of the deepest needs we have as humans. Yes dogs are for us too love on, but as individuals these companions can be the perfect match for us in our everyday lives. Very soon we hope to have up links for therapy and service dogs as this breed of dog is best known for these services.
We not only breed Australian Labradoodles but love each and every one of them as if they will be our own for life. We take pride in raising the puppies and finding them safe and friendly homes that will be theirs for life!
After the adoption we are always available to answer questions and offer tips, advice or you can drop by our blog for articles written with you and these wonderful puppies in mind. Australian Labradoodles, from our family to yours, one miracle at a time.
The Australian Labradoodle breed started in the 1980s by Wally Conran for the Royal Guide Dogs in Victoria, Australia. The goal was to create a breed that was allergy and asthma friendly with the temperament of a service dog. He started with a Poodle and a Labrador Retriever as he felt this mix would be excellent for the attributes of temperament and coat that would be needed for a guide dog. Tegan Park and Rutland Manor continued the development and selective breeding started by Wally Conran.
The Australian Labradoodle breed is not just a cross between a lab and a poodle. English and American Cocker Spaniels and Irish Water Spaniels were also brought into the mix to bring in qualities that Tegan Park and Rutland Manor felt were needed to create a breed that would have the characteristics of allergy and asthma friendliness, low to no shedding, a service dog quality temperament for family companions, top quality confirmation and desired coat types.
