DoodleDogs is a family business, founded in 2003 by Lisa Joyaa Rose (formerly Lisa Carson). As the first Australian Labradoodle breeders (UK), we are experts in all things doodle.
Lisa Joyaa Rose is a former food solicitor, working at one of the top law firms in the UK. After her first child developed asthma, she wanted to find a family dog that was hypoallergenic and asthma-friendly.
Based in Cardiff, but our doodles can be found with families across the UK. Unfortunately, under COVID restrictions, we are currently unable to have visitors. However, we can still share videos/photos/updates. We'll even deliver your chosen pup to you!
After some research into Australian Labradoodles, Lisa decided to go to Australia and bring over the first Labradoodle. DoodleDogs was born! 17 years and 2 more kids later, Lisa is still passionate about ethical breeding practices and preserving the breed’s lines.
She has grown to be one of the most reputable labradoodle breeders in the world. As a result, we export puppies internationally and throughout the UK.
Initially breeding British and Australian Labradoodles, we now only breed Australian Cobberdogs. If you want to know the difference, see our four types of labradoodles blog post. We explain everything.
Our aim is to breed happy, healthy puppies. Therefore, animal welfare is at the forefront of all our work. We check for 36 genetic problems that are completely avoidable with proper screening.
Lisa also started her own dog food company, specifically catered towards doodles and cross-breeds. The food is grain-free, with no added chicken. In our experience, many doodles are intolerant to these two ingredients. We wanted to offer a healthy alternative. They also taste delicious!
Since we’re a family business, we have a small but dedicated team. They work with us, constantly providing our dogs with excellent care.
Before you visit, you’ll probably speak to Grace. As Lisa’s second oldest daughter, she’s grown up with animals. If you have any questions about a particular puppy, she's the first person to ask. She'll make sure you find the pup that's right for you.
Lisa has three other daughters ranging from 6-21. They all love dogs. So, if you have children, don't worry. Not only are Cobberdogs naturally gentle, ours are well socialised and cuddled.
We also have a cat, Sirius, who sometimes says hi. If you have other pets, we always recommend taking caution when introducing a new dog into the home. There's lots more info on our blog to help you.
Here at DoodleDogs, we are passionate about ensuring all our puppies are happy and healthy. We have three core principles that we breed from:
We are fully licensed, Cobberdog registered breeders. All our Australian Cobberdogs are MDBA approved.
What if you live outside the UK? We can help! We’ve exported dogs worldwide. Familiar with most countries’ regulations, we can provide:
Depending on where you are, these requirements can vary. We'll ensure all paperwork is ready, and your dog arrives safely. For more info, check out our International Adoptions and our Export Procedures.
Are you looking for a puppy, but too busy to commit to an 8-week old? A partly-trained puppy might be the answer. All our pups enrol into our training program at 12 weeks old. They will continue to learn until adoption. If you’d like to know more, check out our trained Labradoodle videos.
