It seems safe to assume that when you buy something you expect to go home with the item you bought. What would you do if you payed for a brand new sports car and when they pulled your vehicle to the front of the lot, it was a minivan? Or what if you bought a home in the suburbs of a major city and then when you were given the keys, you were told they go to an apartment downtown? This would be a ridiculous sort of situation, of course, and you would either demand your money back or take the person to court. When you buy a particular item and give a company, person or organization your hard earned money, you’re doing so with the belief that you’re going to get what you’re paying for.
This is why it is so hard to believe that every single day people are buying dogs that aren’t what they’re paying for. They’re being told the dog is a German Shepherd, Labrador or Poodle, but when they take it to the vet for it’s first checkup they’re informed that the dog is something else. This is incredibly frustrating for those who buy a breed for a specific reason. For example, maybe they want a German Shepherd to guard the house, a Poodle because they don’t shed, or a Labrador because they are great with children. When they are told that the dog is actually something else, it’s behavior may be something entirely different from what they originally wanted. This is a big problem.
With no other breed is this more prevalent than with Cobberdogs, more commonly known as Labradoodles. This is why it’s critical to find a Cobberdog breeder that stays true to the breed. Cobberdogs have become one of the most popular types of dog in the country because they’re great with people, they are easy to teach, they have relatively few health issues and their coat is incredibly easy to maintain. However, because they become so popular many people have decided to start breeding them for a profit. The problem with people who know relatively little about these dogs breeding them is that the breed begins to become tainted with all sorts of other traits. When people are buying a Cobberdog because they don’t shed and the person has extreme allergies and then they end up with a dog that sheds more than anything they’ve ever seen, it’s a major problem.
The only way to avoid this situation is to identify a Labradoodle breeder that is truly dedicated to keeping the breed intact. You can identify such a breeder by reading through their website and making sure they know what they are talking about. The more information they provide on their site and the more often they come right out with the fact that they are dedicated to breeding true Labradoodles, the more you can trust what they are saying. Highlands Australian Cobberdogs is one of the few such breeders. If you can’t find a breeder in your area give them a call.
