Our puppy, Beau and our journey with Sea Spray Labradoodles has been a storybook experience. After meeting their dogs, we knew we wanted to welcome one of their puppies into our home, but we had no idea how perfect our puppy was going to be.
If you are considering a puppy and are fortunate enough to have located Seaspray Labradoodles you need not look any further! The care the puppies receive during their first few weeks is exceptional. Our puppy was able to adjust to his new home environment with ease. He arrived well socialized, playful yet calm, with minimal house training accidents (he was practically house-broken from day 1) and is wonderful with children. Seaspray did an outstanding job of matching our family to the ”perfect” puppy. We couldn’t be more delighted with Beau!
The Tessitore Family We are SO HAPPY with our Seaspray Australian Labradoodle puppy. Tess has the best and sweetest temperament of any dog we have ever seen. Peggy & Leslie's description of Tess as she grew up was dead on ! Words can not describe the happiness that Tess has brought to our family. My 8 year daughter says " Tess is the little sister I always wanted". Their "puppy training" program at Leslie's house is a no brainer. I would highly advise all to take advantage of this service at Leslie's loving home. Tess was LIGHT years ahead of every other dog, even a few 4 months older at the training classes in my home town. That early training really made this new adventure a great success. We can not thank Peggy and Leslie enough for this sweet new family member. What a JOY !
Those of you thinking of buying a happy, healthy, lifelong friend, look no further! I researched Australian Labradoodle breeders for several months, I found that there are a wide variety of breeders, some are good, some are poor, and then one stood out to me as excellent, and that was Peggy and Leslie at Seaspray Australian Labradoodles. I talked to them many times on the phone, all my questions where answered, and never, ever, did I feel rushed or pressured. My husband and I actually got on a airplane to visit Seaspray. After meeting Peggy, Leslie, and all her beautiful Labradoodles in person we were positive we had found the breeder for us. When our puppy was born we were kept informed weekly and sometimes daily with emails and pictures, they do such a good job letting you see your puppy grow from day to day. When it was time for our puppy (Sydney) to come home Leslie took her to her home for three weeks for training. Again, we got daily updates with pictures and video's which were very informative. With much anticipation it is now time to pick Sydney up from the airport and wow!......we are totally amazed at the extremely well trained, well behaved, absolutely beautiful, perfect puppy that was handed over to us. We are so happy with Sydney that we are talking of getting another Labradoodle and of course, we would go no where else but "Seaspray". Thank you Peggy and Leslie for doing such a wonderful job.

It has been a little over 6 weeks since we picked Bella up and I find the words hard to find. To say we are pleased does not come close to how we feel.
I had to take a medical disability 14 years ago and after being off work for a year I felt I needed a dog so we bought a Labrador Retriever and she made a fine friend for me and our family. We lost Maggie last fall and said we would not get another dog and have to go through the loss again. After a couple of weeks I read an article in the local newspaper about a retired man who had a Labradoodle he took to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital to visit with the sick children. Well I started reading about Labradoodles and then Australian Labradoodles. My wife was not on board with a new dog and really not on board with a dog that would be living indoors.
I continued to research the breed and breeders and found your listing on the Australian Labradoodle Association of America and took the link to your web site. That is where the education really began. I sent an email to you and also to several other breeders. I received an email response from Peggy & Leslie and before I finished emailing the other breeders. They answered questions I had and made me feel at ease with doing business with Seaspray.
Even though we had never met all of my questions and concerns were answered over the 11 weeks we waited for Bella. It was a long time and then again time flew. I received weekly photo’s of the puppies along with weekly weigh in results and many videos. Prior to the allocation of the puppies I received a telephone call from them and we went over our lifestyle and what we were looking for in a dog. Then came telephone call informing us of our puppy to be followed with the posting of photos and the parents names. The photo’s continued to be posted up to the puppy age of 8 weeks when they started going home. We elected to have Bella go through Puppy Head Start.
The 3 weeks that Bella was going through the training I would get at least 1 video and most days it was 2 of her going through her daily training. The week prior to picking Bella up we received a written list of what took place everyday with Bella. This was a detailed list by time and training that takes place. We also received a list on all the commands Bella knows and what we need to do to continue her training. We even received a video of Leslie and Bella going through her commands.
To end I know of nothing that could have been done to make a better transaction and highly recommend Seaspray Australian Labradoodles to anyone who is looking for a beautiful and healthy companion from two of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Jim

Tampa, Florida Our story....
My husband announced one morning that we needed a dog. He did not care what type of dog as long as it was a BIG dog. So began the hours of research looking for that perfect fit for our family. I researched information and categorized different breeds always returning to the Labradoodle. Now I just needed to find the right size for our family and the right breeder.
One morning, by chance, we met a friendly bulldog and her owner. During our conversation she mentioned Peggy and her Australian Labradoodles. I was in beach mode with kids and filed the information in the back of my mind. Life moved on, I continued to interview Labradoodle Breeders and to educate myself on the difference between Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles. I experienced an array of environments and some were not so pretty. Then I remembered the conversation I had with the bulldog and her family. Could our future dog be a Seaspray Australian Labradoodle? Why didn't I investigate Seaspray earlier in my hunt?
I do not have the answers except to say that I am very happy I did do my research. There is no comparison, when I met Peggy and Leslie everything fell into place. My search was simply over when I saw the love, patience, compassion and heart they had for each and every puppy. It is hard to put into words the way the puppies respond to them and the way they cared for each one individually as if they were the only puppy in the litter. Not to mention the rules both Peggy & Leslie have in place for meeting the dogs which involve things like disinfecting shoes and additional hand washing. All pluses in my book. After meeting Peggy and her doodles, my confirmation was complete and my heart was forever hooked.
Our sweet Dublin came into the world in August. He is absolutely the best and most amazingly loving dog any family could ever have. I am stopped constantly and asked what breed he is and people want more information. They can't believe his demeanor especially for a puppy. I am constantly told he looks like a stuffed animal. I walk him in our neighborhood and cars drive by smiling and pointing. He is a people magnet, simply a Rockstar.
Within one week of sending out our Christmas cards I had three phone calls from friends wanting to know all about Dublin. They will now be attending future Doodle Days. We love him so much and for so many reasons to include his sneaky habit of acorns and mulch, we are working on correcting that. He is a very sweet, calm, gentle and loving puppy. He is also a cuddler yet loves to play, play, play and learn new things too. As for my husband's opinion, Dublin is perfect in every way...our family feels complete!
I had a wonderful experience with Seaspray Australian Labradoodles.....................We couldn't be happier.....
