Welcome to CactusFlower Labradoodles.
Tony and I live in Tucson, Arizona
where we breed the Australian Multigenerational Labradoodle.
We believe that
breeding dogs is a privilege, not a right, that many take for granted. We are ethical breeders and follow the standard
set forth by the Australian Labradoodle Club of America.
Our mission is to breed exceptional
quality Australian Labradoodles for companionship and therapy.

Our entire lives, we have worked with dogs. Initially, we competed in obedience and trained in agility,
later we showed and handled in the breed ring.
For the 10 years to follow, we focused on puppy-raising
5 guide dogs for the blind. This was a very special privilege with rewarding experiences. The education we
received concerning early and appropriate socialization of a puppy was invaluable.
Our last puppy, Civic, was
recruited by the ATF as an explosives detection dog. One way the United States partners with other countries to
stop terrorism is to train dogs in Front Royal, VA to be explosives detection dogs. Civic is now stationed in Venice,
Italy with a police officer at the Venice airport searching for explosives.

Our breeding dogs and their puppies are raised in our home, not in kennels. We understand the importance
of socialization and strive to produce healthy, happy puppies for therapy and companionship.
Thank you for
looking at our Australian labradoodles.
