Melorich Australian Multigenerational Labradoodles
Why Melorich over other Breeders ?
While doing your due diligence you will run across many breeder's websites that tell you very little about their programs and many times nothing at all about their bloodlines, testing, and affiliations with either the ALAA and or the ALCA (Australian Labradoodle Club of America)
Some breeders tell you little because that is what they do. Little to nothing. You should check them out. Ask for what testing they do on their breeding dogs and have them provide you with evidence. Get real testimonials. We do health and genetic testing on a regular basis. Check their status as well. We breed Australian Multigens to the same with many of our dogs carrying the purebred rating
See if they provide Early Spay and Neuter, Early Neural Stimulation, and psychological evaluations. If they do quiz them about it to make sure this is not just lip service!! DON'T think that because a breeder is close to you that somehow that makes it better. As a testament to our dogs we ship as many out of country as we sell in the US.
Many are new breeders making it up as they go. I have worked with many of them. Some are very professional and some leave a lot to be desired and I will be happy to share which ones of those are worth pursuing for a pup should we not be able to provide. I can highly recommend some very well established programs, some quality newer ones, some with our bloodlines and I can even tell you which ones have used our lines but are not the best ones to consider. Also, there are those that only are communicative when its in their best interest. They will disappear on you when you need them. Again do your due diligence.
There is one just one state over that has nice pictures of the parents dating back 5 years. Even one with our Beecroft Cooper. The issue is that they don't, like many others, own any studs so EVERY breeding they do is with a different outside stud. Thing is that makes every breeding a crap shoot since they have no "track" record with a stud to go by. Melorich owns several quality studs, one from internal breeding, one directly from Australia, and one brought in from Canada. All after research. We were so taken by Cooper's pedigree that we imported most of the litter from Australia. We spare no expense to provide you with a quality dog. Rarely do we use an outside stud but when we do we first do our due diligence
Also, because of our Guardian Program we are NOT a kennel and all of our breed stock are in-home pets being nurtured and loved as such. We are a home breeder
We believe that it is an honor to be chosen as your breeder. Not a privilege that we bestow upon a pet family. Many breeders treat you that way.
An example of that are the ones who add the cost of using a credit card service like Paypal. when you go out to eat do the restaurants add 3% to your bill so you can use a credit card? I don't think so. That's called the cost of doing business. So why do breeders charge 3 and even 4 % when you use credit cards? ( Since I must be respectful to other breeders I can no longer answer that. You answer it )These are expensive purchases and
Melorich does not penalize you for using a credit card
This is a quote from the ALCA defining an Australian Labradoodle and this definition best represents what we strive for:
The founders of the Australian Labradoodle as we know it today, began carefully infusing several other breeds into early generations of their Lab/Poodle crosses, to improve temperament, coat, confirmation, and size. The infused breeds include Irish Water Spaniel as well as the American and English Cocker Spaniel. The resulting labradoodles subsequently have been bred to each other, continuing the multi-generational tradition.
Today, Australian Labradoodles are wonderful, intelligent dogs with lush coats that are more reliably low to non-shedding and allergy friendly than other types of Labradoodles such as first generation Lab/Poodle crosses, or first generation crosses bred back to Poodles. Even when the other types of Labradoodles are bred on for generations, the result is not an Australian Labradoodle, as the attributes of the infused breeds were not included in their ancestry.
In the future the one association that best represents our way of breeding this breed will be the sole registration
WE BREED FOR
Temperament and conformation. We believe we have the best representation of this breed
