About HeartRock Labradoodles
Welcome to HeartRock Labradoodles located in the beautiful hill country on the outskirts of Austin, Texas. We are a small in-home breeder of authentic Australian Multi-Generational Labradoodles. We prioritize health, temperament, and conformation. We only breed from the finest Australian Labradoodle lineage and are accredited breeders of the Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association and the Australian Labradoodle Association of America.
I can’t remember a time in my life that we have not had dogs! Over the years, raising four kids (two boys and two girls), dogs have always been an integral part of our lives. We have owned a variety of breeds including a lab and a standard poodle. When I first heard these two great breeds were being bred to each other to form the Labradoodle my research began into the history of the original "Labradoodle." I had no idea at the time that the original Labradoodle dates back to the 1980’s in Victoria, Australia.
Well, I know it took a while, but they got to Texas as fast as they could!
I wanted to raise a family friendly, non-shedding dog that would be good with my grandchildren. Australian Labradoodles are amazingly gentle and protective with children and are very low to non-shedding. We do extensive testing on our breeding dogs . Testing is done through a Paw Prints panel of each of the suggested genetic diseases for Australian Labradoodles (unless cleared by parents).
This ensures you are receiving a very healthy pup from the beginning and should help save down the road on vet bills (not to mention increasing the longevity of your pet).
I am a very small breeder and have spent a great deal of time in research, training, and being hands on with the pups to ensure that each dog receives proper socialization from birth. We use Puppy Culture and Dr. Battaglia’s Bio Sensor program from the beginning for early neurological stimulation.
This program was adopted by the military to help produce “super dogs”. We are not a kennel. The dogs we have on property live in our home and sleep inside as well. They are members of our family. We do place dogs in loving guardian homes on occasion. There are many family members (children and adults) here to give our dogs and any litters the love and attention they all deserve. The litters receive one-on-one attention to build confidence and trust. The puppies are handled daily and receive warm water baths and massages, occasional car rides and are exposed to typical household noises. We keep the nursery exceptionally clean to help the puppies learn to respect their play and sleeping areas. Before going home, we introduce them to the crate for short periods of time to help prepare them for separation from the litter and adjust to their “new den”. Studies have shown that crate trained dogs make well-adjusted adults. We know they won’t be house trained at 8 weeks but strive to get them off to a good start!

Health and safety reasons prevent us from allowing visitors to our home while attending to a new litter. Healthy Puppies Come First Here!
We do keep you updated every step of the way with photos and information on the litters each week.
The puppies are selected by order of deposit. Of course, people have preferences for a specific gender, color or coat. If you do not find the puppy you desire from the litter or if for any reason Mother Nature does not cooperate with the birth of this litter your deposit may be moved to an upcoming litter of that size, type and color variety.
We occasionally have breeding pups available or pups available to guardian homes.
