Coal Miner’s Daughter
Patriot’s Day Doodles is the only ALCA and ALAA registered breeder in the State of Virginia. We breed Australian Labradoodles with no new infusions. Australian Labradoodles are different from the Labradoodle (Poodle and Lab), the Goldendoodle (Golden Retriever and Poodle) and the Aussiedoodle (Australian Shepard and Poodle). The Australian Labradoodle is a blend of several breeds of dog that were selected for no/low shedding and family friendly temperaments. The Australian Labradoodle is becoming recognized as a breed with the OFA. If you are looking for a doodle, the Australian Labradoodle will be the most consistent in coat and temperament compared to the continued first generation mixing of the other doodles listed above. Every breed was designed for a purpose. The Australian Labradoodle was designed for allergy sufferers and for therapy dog temperaments which makes them the ideal family dog.

My girls together are a thing of beauty! We breed for health and temperament but being beautiful is a wonderful bonus!
Hope Farm’s Coal Miner’s Daughter “Loretta” is at Patriot’s Day! She will undergo all her health testing and training and hopefully be part of our program in 2020!
We are actively looking for a Guardian Family within an hour of Starved Rock State Park in Illinois. In 2019, a Guardian family would be getting pick of litter, health tested, vaccinated and ready to play 4-6 month old puppy, for a wonderful family addition. The puppy would be part of our future breeding program when we make the “forever'“ move to IL when Jason retires after 30 years of Naval service in 2020.
We look for families who are often home and willing to train for obedience. Also desired would be someone wanting to train their dog as potential therapy dog or a family who has dog allergies. The Australian Labradoodle is no/low shedding and can be allergy friendly depending on the severity of the allergy. Our dogs are raised for Health and Temperament so you would be getting the best of the breed. Puppy could potentially be male or female and color has not yet been determined. There are a list of qualifications on our Guardian page to help you determine if you could be a potential candidate.
Both of these girls are grown and will be having puppies in the near future. Semper Fidelis and Sailors Delight. We are presently waiting for them come in heat. We have a growing wait list of anxious families and I have to say I am the most anxious of all! We are checking everyday and waiting for them to tell us when they are ready! Of course Chief was born ready and waiting wanting, and willing to prove himself. Photo Courtesy of Silly Little Sparrow
“We were poor but we had love, that’s the one thing Daddy made sure of. . .”
Coal Miner’s Daughter “Loretta” coming to Patriot’s Day in a few weeks. She is out of Leapfrog Coal who is everything we look for in an Australian Labradoodle. Also this is not a photoshop pic. She is naturally that gorgeous and shiny!!
Loretta is Coming to Patriot's Day Doodles Sept 2018
Beautiful litter from Leapfrog Coal and Hope Farms Sadie Lynn. They are 3 weeks old and will mature to 35-40lbs. There are just a few openings as the ultrasound showed 6 puppies and they ended up with 10!! Coal lives with a Guardian who is Firefighter and goes to the fire station to help periodically. His Guardian family also has an autistic son and Coal helps the child with interactions. He is as black and shiny as you can find and has not faded. He is the perfect example in health and temperment of why we breed the Australian Labradoodle.
Sailor is progressing well and actually did fantastic off leash!! The kids are learning about photography and did well for a moving picture!
