Lucy is the "Eve" of the Hopscoch Breeding Program and an integral part of our family, forming very close bonds with both her human companions and our first Australian labradoodle Buddha. The day she walked in as an eight week old pup, Buddha stepped aside for her at the food bowl and Lucy has ruled ever since…


Lucy is extremely  affectionate and highly empathetic, particularly with her female humansShe exhibits high intelligentence expressed as ease of learning and retaining new behaviours, but also in her own creation of communication markers such as walking right up to us, making a low gutteral utterance followed by a turn of her body to request us to follow her to meet a need.

Ros, a founding director of Pawsitive Connections, discovered Lucy has a heightened aptitude for smell detection games and because of her natural athleticism has encouraged us to progress Lucy to an introduction to dog sport program, which we are will commence in 2020.


Instinctively we knew Lucy was a special dog and as her breeder was no longer available to assist us in charting out her pedigree, we decided to get DNA breed identification.
We selected the Orivet GENO PET 5.0 to verify her origins, as it is currently the most complete Dog DNA test in the word. Thankfully the results gave credence to the description of Lucy's parents & grandparents given by her breeder and indeed she only carries the Australian Labradoodle foundation breeds.


Amazingly however, through the Orivet GENO PET 5.0 we also discovered that Lucy's genetic health is A1+++ - she is CLEAR of all 181 screened hereditary diseases.

With her BVA hip score being 1 + 1 = 2 - Lucy is the Golden Quinella success story for any breeding program - outstanding temperament & intelligence, breeding, sporting agility and genetic health.
