Who we are?

Welcome on my website devoted to Australian Labradoodles!

My name is Edyta and since I can remember animals were always accompanying me. I spent the first years of my life in a small village where the great-grandfather introduced me to the secrets of farmer’s life. Tripping among chicks, learning respect from bees (we had own beehives), bare visits to the stables. This excellent study of life in harmony with nature I forward now to my son Fabian, who inherited that sensitivity and love for the world of fauna and flora from me.

Growing up I always had animals close to me – dogs, mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, fish, chickens ….

Unfortunately I slowly started to sensitize to the animals. I first got an allergy for guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, parrots and then at the end for the dogs. For many years I lived with the belief that I will never be able to have a dog. Luckily I still have something called the innate stubbornness, and I know that if one really wants something, he will surely find a way to make his dream come true.

When I first got a dog with hypoallergenic potential – Blanka, I got completely hooked. She and I were the “dream team”. It started with a different kind of training with her, and soon after I began to explore the secrets of animal behavior, which until this day I am passionate about.

I decided that I will start to develop in this direction and with animal behaviorism I associate my future.
When I was a kid, chickens taught me that you have to be very gentle, bees taught me respect and horses …. never to enter the stables barefoot. I graduated in zoopsychology and behaviorism (animal behavior).

On a daily basis as an animal psychologist and behaviorist I am involved in repairing the relationship between man and animal. I help families in dealing with behavioral problems of their pets (mainly dogs and cats).
I also write educational articles for the dog portals as well as kennel club magazines in Poland. I worked for Polish Kennel Club (FCI) in the matter of temperament testing the puppies.

I do the workshops, trainings and talks. One of the most important event I took part in – was TED ( Tech­no­logy, Enter­ta­in­ment and Design) — a scien­ti­fic con­fe­rence orga­ni­zed by the Ame­ri­can Foun­da­tion, a non-profit Sapling Foun­da­tion. Objec­tive — to popu­la­rize the motto — “ideas worth spre­ading .” Ideas , tho­ughts, visions that can change the world. There I gave out the prelection of my 2 ideas (connected to animal/human world).

Recently I established program of educating school children about dogs, their communication language, the importance of good socialization and choosing the right breeder as well as the right breed. The purpose of it is that I still find that knowledge is quite low in the population and I strongly believe that young generations should already grow with that knowledge – for the better understanding and better future.

However the greatest pleasure for me is using my knowledge to socialize my puppies. They are born as pure and unsaved card. What they will get from us in the first weeks of their life will affect their functioning in adulthood. Therefore, proper socialization of puppies at critical stages of development is a key issue. It is indeed my greatest passion – to look at developing “noodles” remembering not only what “training institution” taught me but bees and chickens as well….

How did it start with Australian Labradoodles?

I always wanted to help people with disabilities therefore I started getting into dog therapy. But then it occurred to me that not all people in need can actually benefit from this because of their allergies. I realized that many people who need an assistance dog simply can’t get any help because of their allergies.

When I finally accidentally found out about the breed I was over the moon and I got a really very good feeling about that match! However then I did not think about breeding.

In 2008 I visited Beverley Manners at Rutland Manor in Australia. I lived with her for five weeks. These were the days, during which I learned a lot not only from caring after her dogs, but also thanks to a valuable discussions with Beverley every evening over a cup of tea. Certainly it was one of the experiences I will not forget for the rest of my life. First of all, only contact with the dogs and the lack of allergic reactions caused omnipresent smile on my face. Facing the difficult time of my life at that time I took an advantage of the terapeutic abilities of that dogs.

My mom Ela was the precursor of the idea to found first Australian Labradoodle Kennel in Poland. We supported each other in leading Wlochata Pasja Kennel for 6 years. Unfortunately terrible disease took her away from us in 2014. After being thru those difficut moments I know she is still around and protecting me altough in a different way.

BREEDING – only for the purpose

We are small breeders of Australian Labradoodles. We do not have a lot of litters per year as we think that the only way to raise the puppies right is by devoting them enough time. So 2, maximum 3 litters is what we can have and be sure that they will be all properly socialized and prepared to go for the big world.
All of our dogs live in our home and are 100% members of our family.
We do not breed the dogs until we know that we have enough of families on our waiting list. We carefully choose our families because we want to be 100% sure that those homes will be the perfect homes for all of our puppies.
When we have our litter we make sure all the puppies of Australian Labradoodles are socialized accordingly to our program. All my knowledge is turned into what we do with the puppies in order to provide them everything they need to become stable adults in the future.
Please visit the NEWS panel in order to read all the news about the puppies, there is a lot of pictures and videos for you to watch.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask. We are here to answer you anything you may want to know.

Here you will find the description of out family and the work that we do:
