The Australian Cobberdog was developed by the authentic Australian Labradoodle's founders, Tegans and Rutlands by gathering together the remnants of proven bloodlines and adding additional carefully selected Pure Breeds chosen for their ability to genetically strengthen unique traits and characteristics which were in danger of extinction in the cross breed Australian Labradoodle.
BUT HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?
The Australian Labradoodle became so popular across the world that it attracted thousands of new breeders in a very short time. Many had never bred dogs before and didn't understand the basics let alone the principles of selective breeding. Others smelled the gravy train and cashed in on the popularity of the name. Soon, it was all about the 'cutesy' factor and the unique traits so carefully developed by the founders were in serious danger of extinction. Physical conformation wasn't understood either by inexperienced breeders and a multitude of unsound defects were hidden beneath those pretty coats.
The two Breeding and Research Centres in Australia, Tegan and Rutland, saw their life's work slipping away and they garnered together precious remnants of the old proven bloodlines and invigorated them with freshening doses of other Pure Breeds especially selected for health and stabilizing influences, and to avoid the trap of a restricted gene pool. No Pure Breed registry in the world would accept any breed with the name 'Labradoodle' in it, because it had become so corrupted. After collaboration with a handful of breeders dedicated to reviving the almost extinct traits and characteristics, the new evolving breed was named the Australian Cobberdog; a fitting link with the country of origin, as in Australia a 'cobber' is your best buddy and soulmate.
HOW IMPORTANT IS REGISTRATION?
Anyone can breed a litter of, say for example, Labradors and sell their puppies as Labradors and even write out a non registered pedigree for you and hundreds of thousands of people breed pure but non papered pure breeds this way. But if they are not registered as Labradors with an authoritative body, how do you know that you are getting a pure bred Labrador ?
For that matter, how do you know what you're getting from a registered litter if the registering body hasn't required DNA verification of the puppies' parents?
Well, you don't, and with some registries if paperwork isn't backed up by DNA identification of parents, you still won't.
