When we, Judy Dorough and Gail Tighe, decided to team up, we determined our goal would be to breed dogs that would be able to help our wounded warriors, both physically and mentally.  We knew that these dogs would provide disabled warriors a companion that could meet their needs, and be fantastic, fun family dogs for those that just want a wonderful furry friend!  After lots of research based on health, temperament, intelligence, and structure, we chose the standard Australian Labradoodle.

Once our goals were set, and our new breed was picked, we created Whimsical Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles.   We wanted the parents of our new breed to be health tested, temperament tested, and come with a tracible registered pedigree. 

We chose the standard Australian Labradoodle because of their excellent health, their ability to help the physical (Mobility Dogs) and mental (Therapy Dogs) challenges some of our disabled population encounter, as well as be wonderful, playful, family members.  

The Standard Australian Labradoodle meets the minimum size requirements for our military, making them very useful for the disabled and our veterans.  The reasoning is larger dogs are better for their sturdiness.  This way, the disabled may use them for a brace.  Bracing is when a person doesn't put all their weight on the dogs, but just enough to assist them in getting to an upright position.  

We also chose the Australian Labradoodle to help families who have allergies. With their negligible shedding, hopefully, those allergic will now be able to have a dog and know the love this all-around fun, attentive,

family-companion dog can provide. 

For the first 8 to 9 weeks of our puppies’ lives, we give neonatal stimulation, scent exposure, crate training, potty training (doggy door), lots of love, cuddle time, playtime, outdoor activities, as well as socialization.  Once they are 8 to 9 weeks old, they get to move to their forever homes where now, their ‘forever parents’, can pick up where we left off. 

We are so proud we have met our goals!  We will continue to make every humanly possible effort to breed dogs who want to be with their family, give their love unconditionally, are playful, who will make excellent service, therapy, and family dogs and/or who would excel in obedience and a conformation arena​.

What is a multigenerational Australian Labradoodle?

A multigenerational Australian Labradoodle is a puppy whose parents are both Australian Labradoodles. These puppies are products of generations of breeding time and investment. Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles are low to no-shedding and allergy-friendly.

What is the difference between a Labradoodle (aka American Labradoodle) and Australian Labradoodle?

When you glance at them, Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles look similar. However, as a multigenerational dog, Australian Labradoodles tend to have a more consistent conformation, coat type, and personality as well as being tested prior to breeding. As mentioned above, Australian Labradoodles are predominantly non-shedding and hypoallergenic. 

What are the most common Labradoodle colors?

There are numerous colors and combination of colors. The most common colors are: Black, red, cream and chocolate.  Remember that colors may change as a puppy growns up!  Check out the WALA site for more information on colors.  

Why are Labradoodles registered?

Labradoodles are registered by The Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association.  We also have some of our dogs registered with AKC as Canine Companions.  The Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association, aka WALA, verifies each pedigree for authenticity.  This is your guarantee that your puppy is a true ALD.  Also, to have litters registered, all breeder members must fulfill extensive health testing requirements on the parents of the puppies before being bred.  Make sure your new puppy is registered!

"Ladies! I'm so in love my my pup! He is from Noodle's 10/4/21 litter. This beautiful boy is 47 lbs. He prefers to have ground beef with his food, without it he doesn't care for his kibble! He is affectionate and playful, and adapts well. He walks 1-2 times a day 1-3 miles, loves fetch, goes crazy for bubbles, wants to play with all dogs and people. He sleeps in his crate at night and hangs with me during the work week in and out of my office and backyard." 


"We feel blessed that we were able to obtain a puppy from Whimsical Labradoodles.  Judy and Gail were so accommodating, helpful, and full of knowledge!  Hatti's little boy, who’s now our big boy, is just the best.  Gail told me they give the best hugs.  I didn’t quite know what to think of that statement as I’d never experienced a dog that ‘hugged’.  Well, let me tell you… Bo does give the best hugs!  He is smart, lovable, and aims to please. 

Thank you, Gail and Judy, for letting us have Bo. "
