At Killara Ridge, our pups are born and raised on our property in Oregon that has open fields, wooded areas and natural streams. Our dogs are exposed to birds, which gives us a chance to pick only the best for our breeding program. It is a fact that many “game” dogs are not really hunted, but our hunting dogs work birds.
We are one of the only Labradoodle Centers in the World breeding the dogs specifically for their hunting abilities. We have trained and owned hunting dogs, and you simply won’t find another breeder of quality Labradoodles with this background anywhere! We have traveled to observe the Australian Labradoodles that are the foundation of our lines, and we have imported some of the highest quality bloodlines from Australia.
It is our mission to provide healthy, intelligent, socialized pups that are very trainable and manageable with the temperament and personality that makes them outstanding field and family dogs. We know our dogs, we know their personalities and their hunting ability.
Our dogs are known for their desire to please, and natural game-finding ability. If you hunt pheasants, grouse, quail, or other upland birds, and also hunt waterfowl, an Australian Labradoodle is the dog for you. Labradoodles excel in all aspects of upland hunting as well as waterfowl retrieving. When Labradoodles were not out in the field, they are ready and willing companions. just as happy sitting by your side near the fireplace to make an outstanding well-rounded personality.
We breed hunting dogs in medium and standard sizes; In the field, the smaller, medium, size makes them excellent hunting dogs with good stamina; Our larger dogs also have good stamina, and are the size of a Labrador Retriever.
