I had the opportunity to attend the 12th annual and final Australian Labradoodle Romp in Malibu California, the beginning of September! This was a great experience, meeting so many Australian Labradoodles/Cobberdogs and their owners, and judging several of the competitions. The highlight for me was to meet Beverley Manners, the co founder of the Australian Labradoodle/Cobberdog breed, and spend time chatting with Eve, the editor of Beverley’s newly released book, The Complete Labradoodle and Australian Cobberdog now available here.
Other highlights included the Kissing Contests…IMG_0497 Malibu kissing contest, and the Australian Labradoodle/Cobberdog sprint for Doodles over 40LBS…IMG_0495 Sprint over 40 LBS…And the sprint for Doodles under 40LBS IMG_0496 Sprint under 40lbs part 1… Then the final, IMG_0496 Sprint under 40lbs part 2.
