​​​​About Australian Cobberdogs
Welcome to our Spring Hills website. We are a boutique breeder of the Australian Cobberdog. We chose this breed because of the extraordinary connections they make with their owners. Over many generations, our Australian Cobberdogs have been selectively bred to have the desired traits of; 

  • strong human-focus and connection 
  • calm and centered demenour 
  • emotional warmth 
  • intelligence
  • sustained eye contact
  • high intuition (reading emotional states well) and,
  • high aptitude for training 

We diligently continue to make this our primary focus and this is what makes our Australian Cobberdogs unique. Lots of people breed delightfully pretty puppies, of varying breeds, our difference is we are dedicated to breeding unique high quality companion animals appropriate for therapy or service work. 

The Australian Cobberdog had a bit of a controversial beginning, sharing some early heritage with the Labradoodle. The Australian Cobberdog, for many generations now, has it's own unique genetic blueprint and is an identifiable and registered breed. The amazing characteristics they have for a companion therapy dog or service dog also make them terrific family pets. They suit individuals, families and therapeutic settings (nursing homes, educational settings, health settings and companion therapy animal use). They are well suited for homes with a child with a developmental disability and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder. They can also help to ground and soothe homes where individuals experience significant anxiety. Their high intuition means they read emotional states well and adapt their behaviour. With training they can learn to soothe specific difficult emotional states. Australian Cobberdog coats are no to low shedding, low allergenic and low odour. This makes them an ideal companion and means less hair and less housework, which we all appreciate! Coats can be straight. wavy or curly. We presently breed medium and standard size. 

Australian Cobberdogs are goofy and have a great sense of fun. They are carefully bred for minimal aggression and are very good with other pets. They enjoy nothing more than spending time with you and being a part of the family. I should add they really are not sit and forget backyard dogs. Their preference is to be inside with the family and they will give you love, loyalty, companionship and a life time of belly laughs in return. The puppies we carefully and selectively breed have exceptional pedigree, as we are committed to responsibly contribute to the development of this breed. The parents of our puppies have had exhaustive health testing, including sophisticated DNA​ breed profiling for genetic health conditions and coat testing. This ensures you a healthy puppy with a good temperament.
