These outstanding Australian Labradoodles are the parents, grandparents, and even great, great grandparents of many of our current breeding dogs!
Each has contributed something special to our program.
Keeva is such a sweetheart! She's a social butterfly who loves her kitty cats, her human big sister, and everyone she meets. Keeva is a 3rd generation Leapfrog Labradoodle. Her mom is Sparrow and her grandma is Polly. Dad is Kodiak. With her adorable good looks and her stellar health test results, Keeva has made an amazing contribution to our breeding program! Raine and Robin are Keeva's daughters who will carry her legacy forward.
LEAPFROG PERFECT PEARL aka Lula
Lula is a bundle of joy! She was one of our smallest, at only 16 lbs. Like most mini Australian Labradoodles, Lula is fit, active, and doesn't miss a beat when it comes to accompanying her family on their many daily outings and adventures. She also never misses an opportunity for a cuddle. Lula lives just around the corner in a family with 3 young children, and loves everyone she meets. She encapsulates all the traits we strive to produce, in one small, ultra-adorable package.
HOPE FARM KODIAK
Kodiak came to us all the way from North Carolina. He is a wiggle bum, toy-toting, snuggle bug of a labradoodle! He comes from older Australian therapy dog lines. He is a gorgeous dark chocolate. At 18 inches and 40 lbs, Kodiak has that nice heavy boning that is so sought after in the Australian Labradoodle. Kodiak has sired some beautiful puppies for us here at Leapfrog Labradoodles as well as for other breeders. Firefly, Cricket, and Bowie are his daughters that we retained for breeding.
LEAPFROG LUCKY IN LOVE (Jasper)
Jasper holds a special place in my heart because her lines go right back to the beginning when I first started breeding. She is smart, easy to train, and loves everyone she meets (on 2 legs or 4). She reminds me a lot of her grandmother Keesha who is certified as a therapy dog. She is the only daughter I retained from Firefly, whose puppies have been wildly popular. Jasper has now had puppies of her own and they have brought every bit as much joy to their families as Firefly's!
LEAPFROG LUCKY CHARM (Jade)
Jade is a full sister to Willow. Their parents are Acorn and Monty. Jade is a smart, affectionate, silly little girl who loves everyone she meets. Jade carries forward some of our proven therapy lines. She is a go anywhere - do anything kind of girl! Jade lives in a wonderful guardian home on a street with several other doodles. She is continually capturing the attention of strangers who comment on her size and colouring. Jade made lasting impact on our breeding program! We retained her daughter Penny and son Clover for our breeding program. Her son Jasper (Lucky Clover) is carrying forward her legacy at Labradoodles des Montagnes Laurentiennes in Quebec.
LEAPFROG GOLDEN WILLOW (Willow)
Willow is a happy playful girl who loves everyone she meets! She is joyful, snuggly, and always up for an adventure! Willow carries forward some of our proven therapy lines. She is a go anywhere - do anything kind of girl! She can be found keeping her guardian mom company in her home office, helping her 'big sister' do homework, frolicking on the beach, bounding through the woods, learning new tricks, and accompanying her family virtually everywhere they go. Willow made an outstanding contribution to our breeding program! Willow's daughter Lula and son Harvest will carry her legacy forward.
SARDIS PARK MONTGOMERY (MONTY)
Monty came to us from our friends at Sardis Park Labradoodles in Chilliwack. He's a sweet, intuitive boy. Monty is active and loves to run and play with his friends. He is very social, and loves everyone he meets (humans, dogs, cats). Monty produced adorable minis and smaller mediums in all colours, including phantom, sable, and parti. Willow, Sunny, and Jade are his daughters that we retained for breeding.
EARTH ANGEL'S HUCKLEBERRY
No matter which way you slice it, we wouldn't be who we are today without Huckleberry's influence on our program! She was responsible for bringing us beautiful reds and caramels, and for helping us to make the shift from breeding the larger standards, to breeding mediums. Huckleberry adores people of all ages. She has always had a very special connection with my daughter, Talia. At age 2, she was certified as a therapy dog. Huckleberry is now retired and means the world to her human companion. Huckleberry is the mother of Honeycomb, Polly, and Acorn. She is the grandmother of Sparrow. I am grateful for, and look forward to, the ripple effect of Huckleberry's influence in my program.

Acorn is the daughter of Huckleberry and mother of Jade and Willow. She had some of the sweetest puppies for our program and has left a lasting legacy. Acorn has retired and is living the good life as a loved member of her active and adoring family.
Honeycomb truly is a Honey, which is how she got her name (that and her gorgeous fleece coat is similar in colour to honeycomb). She is a sweet, gentle, loyal companion who possesses many of her mama Huckleberry's most admirable traits as a therapy dog. She also inherited her papa Bowen's OFA Excellent hips. Her puppies were everything we had hoped for and more! Honeycomb lives in a wonderful, retirement home with her daughter, Bean.
LEAPFROG POLLIWOG aka "POLLY"
Polly makes people laugh! She is calm around the house, but always ready to spring into action should the occasion call for it. She is very sweet and loving, at the same time as being incredibly silly and playful at heart. Although Polly enjoys being a lapdog, she also delights in playtime with her kitty cat friends or with other dogs (especially puppies). Polly is the daughter of Huckleberry and Bowen, and the mother of Sparrow. Polly has retired to a life of gardening, beach combing, and camping adventures with her loving guardian family, and with her daughter Sparrow, who will begin her breeding career in 2018.
Sparrow is a happy dappy social girl who loves everybody she meets. She is playful, snuggly, and joyful, not to mention always up for an adventure! She carried forward some of our best therapy lines, in a smaller package. Sparrow will soon be certified as a therapy dog. She is enjoying her retirement with her mum, Polly, in a wonderful family that was previously their guardian family. We kept two of Sparrow's beautiful puppies to move forward with (Sunny and Keeva).
LEAPFROG HERE COMES THE SUN (Sunny)
Sunny is Sparrow and Monty's daughter and a half sister to Keeva, Jade, and Willow (she wins the prize for having the most relatives of any dog in our breeding program). Sunny is sweet, loyal, and easy going. Sunny had one lovely litter. We did not retain a puppy from Sunny's litter for our program, but Sunny's family added a puppy from that litter to their family :)
Keesha is such a treasure! She is a true pillar within our program. Keesha is the daughter of Lily Pad and the granddaughter of Flower. She is the mother of Bean, Maddie, Jewel, Firefly, and Cricket, and the grandmother of Scarlet and Oliver! Keesha is sweet, calm, and incredibly loving. We are very proud of Keesha for acing the evaluation to become a therapy dog at just one year of age. Her puppies have been amazing! They will carry forward her legacy for years to come. Keesha is retired and lives with us here on the farm :) She is an active therapy dog bringing joy to children and adults in multiple venues across the community.
LEAPFROG LADY OF THE NIGHT (CRICKET)
Cricket is Keesha's daughter, Lily Pad's granddaughter, Flower's great granddaughter, and Firefly's sister. She is out of the first litter that Kodiak sired for us. I fell in love with Cricket the instant she was born, and held my breath for another year until she passed her health testing. Cricket has the solid build, the shiny coat, and the sweet temperament that are so sought after by Australian Labradoodle breeders. I am totally in love with this girl, and so delighted that she got to be a mama in our program!
LEAPFROG MAGNIFICENT JEWEL (JEWEL)
Jewel is a sweet, happy girl. She has the gentle soul of her mum, and the striking good looks of her dad. Her gorgeous apricot cream coat, and ink black (nose) draw attention wherever she goes. I couldn't be more pleased to have the best qualities of Keesha and Marlo brought together in one adorable package! Jewel carries all colours. She was the last of our standard-sized labradoodles who produced the larger sized puppies.
LEAPFROG SCARLET RUNNER aka "BEAN"
Bean is a delightful, easygoing girl who likes to go anywhere with her family. She boats, hikes, plays on the beach, and is continually stopped on the street by people admiring her beautiful red curls and teddy bear good looks. Bean is the daughter of Keesha, granddaughter of Lily Pad, and great granddaughter of Flower. She is the mother of Scarlet and Oliver. Her puppies have been spectacular!
LEAPFROG SWEET SCARLET
Scarlet is an adorable, happy girl who loves everybody she meets. She is playful, snuggly, easy-going, and joyful. Scarlet is from Bean and Marlo's first litter. Scarlet carries for all colours including phantom and parti. Scarlet has retired to live for the rest of her life with the fantastic guardian family who raised her. If you see a gorgeous red Australian Labradoodle out paddle boarding, it's probably Scarlet!
Jasmine is a calm, affectionate girl who can seldom be found without a toy in her mouth. She loves to sit and cuddle for hours, but she can also play ball with the best of 'em. Jasmine has no qualms about asking strangers for belly rubs, and she has yet to meet a person she doesn't like. Jasmine is the daughter of Star, and the granddaughter of Amitrine. She is the mother of Apple, who will carry forward her legacy at Leapfrog Labradoodles. Jasmine is looking forward to a very snuggly retirement with her lovely guardian family here on the Sunshine Coast.
LEAPFROG BRAEBURN (APPLE)
Apple is Jasmine's daughter, Star's granddaughter, Ami's great granddaughter, AND a half sister to Monty! She is pure love! Apple is very lab-like in her demeanor, and can usually be seen weaving around people's legs, tail wagging, with a toy in her mouth. We love her adorable disposition, her compact (stocky) little body, and her beautiful chocolate/cafe coat. Apple is clear by parentage for all of the genetic diseases we can test for in Australian Labradoodles. Apple had 3 stunning litters, leaving our adorable Leapfrog Bowie to carry forward her legacy!
Bowie is Apple and Kodiak's daughter. She is a sweet, comical girl who is all wiggles and wags. She is forever teasing her 'big brother,' Marco, a much larger labradoodle from Dandelion Rose and Charlie's litter. Bowie was born chocolate and has matured into a lovely parchment colour that people comment on wherever she goes. Bowie lives in a wonderful guardian home just around the corner from us. Besides keeping her mom, dad, and Marco the labradoodle company around the house, Bowie goes on lots of neighbourhood walks and on as many camping adventures as possible during the warmer months.
LEAPFROG MADEIRA (MADDIE)
Maddie is a bouncing ray of sunshine! She is sweet and gentle, at the same time as being very playful and athletic. Maddie is the daughter of Keesha and Charlie, the granddaughter of Lily Pad, and the great granddaughter of Flower. She had one litter for us in 2016. We did not get to retain a puppy for our program. Maddie has retired to full-time frolicking with her family here on the Sunshine Coast.
Bowen looks and acts like a Teddy Bear. Despite being able to run like the wind, Bo is a true lap dog at heart. In his world, snuggling is number one. For Bo, attitude is everything. His tail wags non-stop from the time he wakes up until he falls asleep at night.Bowen is Bean, Honeycomb, and Polly's sire, and Scarlet, Oliver, and Sparrow's grandsire. His legacy lives on at Leapfrog Labradoodles!
COLONIAL VILLAGE CHARLESTON aka "CHARLIE"
Charlie has a wonderful calm temperament that we were excited to see passed on to our puppies. Charlie is the same sweet, easy going dog whether he's relaxing around the house, greeting visitors, or accompanying us on one of our infamous 'road trips' :) Charlie produced all colours with our girls, including chocolate, black, caramel, and apricot. Charlie has now retired to live out the rest of his days with his wonderful guardian family in Vancouver. Charlie sired several wonderful litters of puppies, including Maddie, who had a litter with us in 2016.
LEAPFROG DANDELION ROSE aka "DANDI"
Dandelion Rose is Flower's daughter. She is a full sister to Lily Pad, and every bit as sweet. Dandi is a wonderful blend of affection and athleticism, which is what we strive for in producing the Australian Labradoodle. She has a stunning wavy fleece coat that is as silky and shiny as her mother's. We were thrilled to have Dandelion Rose in our breeding program and we have been delighted with her puppies! Dandi has retired to her wonderful guardian home with her daughter, Malakai Rose in Kamloops. Because we have always strived to keep our breeding program small, we did not retain a puppy from Dandelion Rose's litters.
LEAPFROG STAR ANISE
Star is from a very strong line of therapy and service dogs. She herself was a therapy dog who worked with children who have witnessed abuse. Her litter mate, Bogey, works with victims of trauma in the court system in California. Star is a sweet, calm girl whose whole body wags when she wags her tail. She lives with and is very much loved by her wonderful guardian family in Halfmoon Bay. Star is Ami's daughther, Jasmine's mother, and Apple's grandmother.
LEAPFROG LILY PAD
Lily Pad is Flower's daughter, Keesha's mother, Bean's grandmother, and Scarlet and Oliver's great grandmother! She is a sweet, cuddly girl who follows in her mother's footsteps. Like Flower, Lily Pad eagerly awaits car rides and loves to join in on any adventure. She also loves to curl up on the couch and cuddle. She is another "go everywhere" doodle who is happiest when she's with her people. "Lovey Lily" was a cornerstone of our program. Most of breeding dogs descended from her.
GEMSTONE'S BLACK TREASURE aka Flower
Flower is our "go everywhere" doodle. She is as comfortable walking down city streets and sleeping in hotel rooms as she is hiking through the back country that extends beyond our property. Flower considers life to be a wonderful adventure and she approaches every new situation with the same cheerful confidence. I will never forgot my 5 year daughter (at the time) bragging that Flower is the "happiest, go lucky doodle in the world."
Besides being one of the world's happiest doodles, Flower is a stunning example of her breed. With her jet black wavy fleece coat, eyelashes that are over three inches long, and sweet, comical nature, Flower attracts attention everywhere she goes. With her great looks, temperament, and pedigree, Flower was an immense asset to our breeding program. She produced service dog quality puppies in all colours, including caramel, apricot, chocolate, creme, and black.
Flower's dam was imported to Canada directly from Australia. Her sire resides in the UK, where he too was imported directly from Australia. Both are fully tested, world class Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles from excellent service dog lines. Flower is the mother of Lily Pad and Dandelion Rose, the grandmother of Keesha, the great grandmother of Bean, and the great great grandmother of Scarlet and Oliver! We would not be Leapfrog Labradoodles without Flower's ongoing impact on our program!
Ami is a sweet happy girl who is content to flop around the house...until you pick up her ball...at which point she will streak across the yard at lightening speed with a huge grin on her face. Don't let Ami's coat fool you, she's a lab in labradoodle suit! Ami is the mother of Star, the grandmother of Jasmine, and the great grandmother of Apple. Her legacy lives on at Leapfrog Labradoodles.
