We have recently gone through the process of purchasing our first family puppy who is a sweet little chocolate girl just 11 weeks old. We have no hesitation in recommending ALI to any prospective buyer. We found them to be 100% committed to the health and welfare of their puppies giving them the best possible start in life in a loving home environment. They are trustworthy and family-orientated and meticulous in the care of the puppies. They offer a professional service
every step of the way and provide on-going support which is so reassuring and we can wholeheartedly say we are delighted we chose Australian Labradoodles of Ireland as our breeder.

Our Chili turned 4 months last Tuesday - and she’s more than beautiful, inside and out! We still can hardly believe how lucky we’ve been with this breeder! The first-time mum gave all the best of her genes and love and patience - just like the caring humans around her! We never owned a dog before and found our experience 5 star - information, advice, photos, medical checkups, vaccines, food, environment, payments, communication, transparency and above all - the caring LOVE for the dogs! We are very grateful! Thank you Silvija & León!
Sommer Family, Germany
Remo is now 16 weeks old and thriving in all areas. He is such an intelligent and happy puppy, it feels like he has been part of the family for years.
We just want to say a big thank you to you both for going above and beyond the call of duty. I don’t think there are many breeders out there with your level of service. Being able to see him at any stage before we got to pick him up as well as being on the end of the phone and the constant photos and updates in the lead up to collecting him was invaluable and very much appreciated.
To get a pup so young nearly toilet trained was amazing. We are constantly being stopped to enquire about him and how beautiful he is.
We have no hesitation recommending you and have on occasions given your details to prospective buyers.
Murphy Family, County Dublin, Ireland
The process of getting on the waiting list and then the wait itself were very pleasant experiences. I think it was very thoughtful of you to first inform us about the puppies on WhatsApp and only then on Facebook and Instagram. The puppy updates were something that we really looked forward to.
The puppy pack has been great and it's very reassuring to know that I can rely on you for help with any issues. It is obvious that you are really devoted breeders and have thought of the buyers so I have no other suggestions on how to improve the process.
Thank you again so much & best wishes to your wonderful family!
Mäkinen Family, Finland.
The whole process with you guys was amazing from the beginning, both on the business side, and of course also with Riley, who we are delighted with.
The weekly updates were very good and lovely to have, we enjoyed getting them and the whole family would sit down and look at them every week, it’s so nice to now have those pictures of Riley when he was tiny, but it was also a good way to keep in touch.
Riley is so incredibly calm and sweet natured, you can tell and feel that he was been really loved. He’s so happy to be handled, carried around or snuggle down on our laps. He’s at ease in himself and this is definitely testament to the amazing start he got with you. Nothing has fazed or frightened him so far, he is used to different noises and came to us very well socialised.
We couldn’t recommend you more.
Clodagh, County Cork, Ireland
Dixie is such beautiful dog with a very charming character. We are grateful to have her in our family.
Many thanks to both of you (Silvija and León).You have been very professional in walking us through the entire adopting process of Dixie, from getting onto the waiting list all the way to bringing her personally to Austria.
Foremost Dixie had a perfect family and environment to spend her first weeks and months. This is, what we were looking for, as the first weeks are so important to the character and socialisation of dogs. And indeed, Dixie is very well behaved. She is not at all anxious, nervous or aggressive but very friendly, cuddly and funny.
She loves to play with us and other dogs, sleeps all night long and is perfectly house-trained. Thank you very much again for letting making everything happen.
Schwenninger Family, Austria.
From the very first interaction to collecting our lovely puppy Alfie, Leon and Silvija were fantastic. The constant updates and opportunity to visit Luna and the puppies before collection were brilliant.
Alfie has been a fantastic addition to our family. He arrived almost fully house trained. Sleeping through the night from the beginning, he has never been any trouble. This is all down to the hard work of Leon and Silvija and the care and attention the put into the puppies.
We couldn't recommend them enough. They are exceptional.
Daniel and Declan, County Dublin, Ireland
Brooklyn is now 15 weeks and we’ve had her for 3 weeks now. She is one fluffy, loving and happy girl. I am really impressed how fast she has been adjusting to her new home and especially to have received her almost fully potty trained!
The experience I had with Silvija and Leòn was first class from beginning to even now well after collecting my new puppy. It was important for me to have a puppy coming from a small breeder who were so knowledgeable about their breed. The weekly updates and the support I’ve had since I got Brooklyn is beyond I was expecting.
I would highly recommend them if you’re looking for a puppy who has been loved and cared for since day 1. Can’t thank them enough for what they have brought into our lives!
We are a family of 5 with a long history of allergies and when we finally decided to adopt an Australian Labradoodle we were not really aware of all the steps we would have to follow; now that Jenna, our lovely chocolate puppy, has joined the family I shall say that it has been an extremely positive experience and was a wonderful chance to find Australian Labradoodle of Ireland.
From the very beginning, we have received tons of information, constant updates with pictures and all our questions have been extensively answered. When we picked up our puppy we also received a complete package of information, including medical tests, advice, administrative papers...
Thank you very much to León, Silvija and his family for their dedication. We are spreading the word about the amazing job you are doing.

We got our pup recently and cannot recommend Leon and Silvija(Australian Labradoodles of Ireland) enough. They kept us involved from the very start and sent pictures, videos and regular updates as soon as the pups were born until we took our pup home. They answered any queries immediately throughout the process and continue to do so. They are professional and care immensely for their dogs. All the puppies were happy, had socialised well with their children and family life, which made the transition very easy for taking our pup home. I can’t thank them enough for help and support given to us and the most adorable fun puppy we now have 🐶.

Our gorgeous puppy, Chili, is just 10 weeks old and is an absolute sweetheart. She has only been with us for 2 weeks but we are completely in love with her and she has brought so much joy to our home.
Although she was only a baby when she came to live with is, Silvija and León had already done a fantastic job laying the basic foundations for toilet training which has made Chili's transition to our home even easier. At just 10 weeks, she is almost fully toilet trained! We are so proud of her and so grateful to Silvija and León for the groundwork they put in.
From the very first moment we contacted Silvija and León, we knew we wanted to welcome one of their puppies into our family. Their communication was second to none, they were always available to discuss any questions or concerns we had. They listened to our needs and wishes and did their best to fulfill them but their overall goal was always to do what was best for their puppies. They put so much time and love into the puppies and it is clear to see in our Chili. She absolutely loves being around people and she has a gorgeous temperament which is really important to us with our two young girls.
Thank you Silvija and León. We would highly recommend you to anyone who is thinking of adding a wonderful Aussie Doodle puppy to their home.
Farrell Family, County Kerry, Ireland

We got a puppy from Australian Labradoodles of Ireland and cannot recommend it enough. They know the breed really well and are very experienced. They truly care for their dogs and breed them responsibly and with plenty of love. They make sure puppies go to families that will give them the same level of care and love.
León and Silvija are very approachable and transparent. They answered all of our questions promptly (believe me... we had tons of questions!) and have also provided us with continuous support to ensure we get the best possible experience before and after getting the puppy. The only thing I would change to the process is to receive the contractual agreement a bit earlier to have more time to go through this , but apart from that our experience was great and very positive.
We are very impressed with their professionalism and all that they do to support the puppies' development, match puppies with their future families and prepare them for their new homes. We enjoyed receiving plenty of information, regular puppy development updates and photographs.
When we collected the puppy, it was in perfect health, microchipped, with vaccines and worm treatment up-to date.
ALI goes above and beyond in every way. Puppies get temperament tests, regular health checks, plenty of socialisation, etc. They even got a puppy gym! Puppy comes with a pack with the key things needed for the first few weeks. Leon and Silvija started puppy house training so it has been really easy for us to continue with this process at home and can say that only 2 weeks after collecting the puppy, it is nearly fully house trained!
Collection day was a warm and friendly experience where we got to meet this amazing family and all their lovely dogs.
We look forward to our lives with our new fluffy-friend 😀🥰

We purchased our gorgeous , cute , clever puppy from Australian labradoodle of Ireland and I have nothing but positive comments. Communication before and throughout the purchase were great. The puppy itself is very well behaved, knows a few tricks and is extremely happy and healthy. Our girl is sooo... beautiful inside & out .The delivery itself was well planned . I highly recommend buying from this breeder as they are professionals and dealing with them was a pleasure! Silvija and Leon done fantastic job , thank youuuuuu so much !!!!

We had been considering adding a Labradoodle to our lives for a while. We were lucky to find Australian Labradoodles of Ireland - a reputable breeder with integrity, knowledge and professionalism we could trust.
We felt comfortable purchasing from Leon and Silvija after reviewing their website & facebook page, seeing that none of the breeding dogs live in kennels and that they were affiliated with ALAEU.
The level of care and love provided to the puppy really stands out. Australian Labradoodles of Ireland treat the new born puppy as if it was their own. The puppies are kept in their home and are looked after. The puppy we took home was already very well socialised. Our puppy Almond has a wonderful temperament. He is a very friendly and affectionate dog. He adjusted to his new home very easily.
We looked forward to receiving updates and photos on a weekly basis when the puppy was born.
Leon and Silvija have been very helpful - answering all our questions and even following up to see how Almond was doing in his new home.
We would happy to recommend Leon and Silvija to anyone. Their level of service and dedication has far surpassed our expectations and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have found this breeder.

Eric is 10 weeks now and has been living with us for 2 weeks. He is such a wonderful puppy and it is clear to see that Leon & Silvija put in so much care into the puppies, loving them like their own! He is such a well adjusted, happy, sociable little pup, and incredibly smart - sometimes more than we would like.
When we decided to get a pup we done a lot of research and decided that an Australian labradoodle would be the best fit for our family. We found Australian labradoodles of Ireland and from the initial email of interest the level of care, support and attention has been second to none.
Leon & Silvija have been so wonderful from start to finish and beyond...even answering small queries and concerns when our puppy was already home with us. They also have messaged to find out how Eric has settled in, and the knowledge there is a support like this behind you makes everything so much easier and far more enjoyable!
At 10 weeks old Eric is able to sit, wait, give paw, lie down and come on command. He has also slept through the night from night 1 with us and we have never had to get up to let him pee through the night! We literally couldn’t be happier and are so glad to have found ALI!
5 out of 5!! Would recommend to anyone wanting an Australian labradoodle!!

It’s been almost 4 months since we brought Chewbacca home and 2 years since we started our conversation with Silvija and Leon. From the first message, through the waiting time for puppies to be born, regular updates through the first 8 weeks (information, photos, advice on how to prepare for the arrival of the puppy) and then all follow ups afterwards, they have been nothing but wonderful. Very professional and supportive throughout the process. I’ve never seen such caring breeders devoted to all their dogs and future families! The love and effort they invest in every dog is amazing! When we got him, Chewbacca was used to being handled, exposed to different kinds of stimuli and at ease with us in new surroundings. He trusted us from the beginning as he learned trusting humans from your family. We are so delighted to have found and chosen Australian Labradoodles of Ireland to get our puppy from. We can’t recommend them enough!

We are so grateful to have been recommended to go through ALI for our pup. The experience with ALI felt like we were working together to make Murphy’s transition from one loving home to another, a smooth one. It was always about what’s best for Murphy. ALI even made his first flight to a foreign country so easy by getting him comfortable in his travel crate.
We loved particularly the pupdates and looked forward to a new update every Sunday. It was a nice anticipation of the week for our family.
We love the tips along the way, our list of “must haves” and the continuous tips we keep getting along the way till today. We feel so comforted with answers so easily available to our many questions.
The starter package that comes with the puppy is well thought of and so well put together. It helped us a lot getting adjusted for our new family member. Funnily enough the blanket that has the smell of the litter is the one thing Murphy does not bite, now that he’s teething. He loves snuggling with it at night.
We love that he had started sleep training and potty training before coming to us. The “accidents” have been almost non-existent and training him was so easy. He’s so adaptable and “homey”.
We would love to see more of his siblings on social media (if they have any) just to see how they’re doing. We would hope to one day see an ALI extended family page or something in the near future. Just to connect with the other families, exchange photos and stories about his siblings.
ALI, thank you for giving us such a wonderful experience. It’s been so lovely from day one.

My little man Merlin is now 5 months old and thriving like he has been this whole time. He has brought so much joy, love and priceless moments to my life and to everyone around him.
Not a day goes pass that he doesn’t get the admiration of everyone he meets. He is loving, gentle, adventurous, curious, kind, super social and always ready for new exiting things.
He is so good with kids, absolutely loves all dogs and doesn’t have a bad bone in his body. He is everything and beyond of what I hoped for a best friend. He has this incredible a way to charm everyone he sees.
The process with Silvija and Leon has been smooth and effortless. They made sure (still do) that I’m informed about everything and that everything is super transparent. When picking the breeder I had this thought that they are warm and trustworthy family and indeed I am super happy that I trusted my instincts and chose them. They truly love their dogs and make sure that their puppies are well taken care of with them and with the right families.
From the start I could tell that they did amazing job raising Merlin since he is not afraid if anything, he loves to play and does it gently, he hasn’t “destroyed” anything and is just completely healthy in every way.
Thank you for doing amazing and responsive job with this wonderful breed.

We made a decision to get a 2nd Australian Labradoodle as we love our 1st Australian Labradoodle who is now 11 years old. It was a big decision to get another Labradoodle as there are questionable breeders in Ireland which we unfortunately experienced first hand with our 11 year old Labradoodle.
Today our 2nd Labradoodle is 15 weeks old - Lincoln - and we are so happy with the positive experience we had and continue to have with Australian Labradoodles of Ireland - Silvija and Leon. Silvija and Leon were approachable, transparent and answered every question I had around their ethics and breeding - the pictures of the mum with her puppies and later watching over her puppies were given regularly and timely so that I was assured the pictures were genuine. Given our first experience I had many questions and Silvija was always happy to answer them and understood my concerns - and on the other side of the coin Silvija ensured that she was sending Lincoln to the right family. The most genuine part was that Silvija continued to contact me to enquire how Lincoln was settling in and appreciated when I sent pictures of Lincoln to her.
Australian Labradoodles of Ireland do not tell you what puppy you are getting until they are about 6-7 weeks old as they do personality temperament tests to match the puppy to your home circumstances. I know this cannot be an exact science but Silvija told us that we would be getting Lincoln and that he had a calm personality. I had no idea what "calm" meant so did my own research - all I can say is that Lincoln was a perfect match for our house. He has no separation anxiety, funny and quirky AND so easy to train - he loves and soaks up his training sessions. We are looking forward to seeing how his personality develops.
We picked Lincoln up at 8 weeks. Silvija and Leon introduced us to the mother and grandmother - we met the other puppies and it was very clear that the puppies had been in the kitchen since birth as they all knew what to do when let out for their toileting in front of us. In addition the handover of the registration papers and vaccine papers from a reputable vet was very organised and transparent. Lincoln was night toilet trained in the crate from day 1 and he understood the day training with our support and training.
We look forward to our lives with Lincoln who came from a breeder that has a good ethics policy from our experience.
The Chivers Family, Dublin, Ireland.
Our puppy is now 6 months old and he has brought so much joy to our family. Throughout the process of waiting list and once he was born we were kept updated with lots of information.
We particularly looked forward to the ‘pup dates’ on a Sunday with information and pictures!
ALI do temperament testing with the dogs to see which dog would best suit each family. This wasn’t something we had heard from other breeders. We have 2 young daughters and our puppy is the most chilled out puppy ever - there’s noise and lots of hugs in our house and he’s not bothered by it at all. He is very clearly a perfect match for our family.
Austin came to us well on his way to being toilet trained and he’s easy to train - he is an intelligent dog (not to say he isn’t a rascal at times!!)
It’s clear to see that not only do ALI care about the well-being of dogs when in their care, but they care about them after they have gone to their forever homes.
We would, and do, recommend ALI to anyone looking for an Australian Labradoodle - we do get stopped a lot when out for a walk because he is so beautiful!
This has been the right choice for our family and we’re delighted we used ALI as our breeder. Thank you Silvija & León.
The Gill Family, Bangor, Northern Ireland
We live in France and highly recommend Australian Labradoodles of Ireland . Even with the long distance the process was smooth and stress free, great communication and genuine care and always available for any questions or concerns we had. Our beautiful boy is so relaxed, socialised and well behaved and just amazing with our children thanks to the initial hard work and love and care put into his early life. These guys go above and beyond for their dogs and puppies. Well worth the money and waiting list. Keep up the good work and thank you for the most beautiful puppy our family could have . You guys are amazing !!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Australian Labradoodles of Ireland. Leon and Silvija are so knowledgeable, and it is very obvious that they truly love their dogs. No question or query was ever too much trouble for them, while I was on the waiting list for my pup they were always very quick to get back to me and answer my questions.
Once the litter of pups were born, I received regular updates on how mom and pups were doing, which was very much appreciated.
Visiting their home reinforced how well the pups were looked after, and they spent a long time with me, giving me all the info I needed to take my pup home.
Our pup has settled in so quickly to our home and I feel that is down to how well she was socialised in Leon and Silvija's family home for the first 8 weeks of her life. Fantastic breeders.

I can't recommend Australian Labradoodles of Ireland enough. The communication throughout the whole process was second-to-none & the support is still available. We were updated as soon as the pups were born & got weekly pupdates until we collected.
Stella (aka Shenzi) is with us nearly 2 weeks. She is a beautiful natured, loving, playful pup. She is a credit to Silvija & León & how they reared her in their home for the first 8 weeks.
We got to meet Mammy, Granny & Stella's 8 siblings. The love for their pets is clearly evident 🐶💖

There are few words that could describe how thankful we are to have come across ALI (Silvija & Leon) in our search for a fluffy companion. The whole process is professional, informative, and inclusive to a level that we honestly didn't expect. From the initial contact to puppy pickup, we were constantly in the loop through email and photo/video updates. Teddy has settled into the home almost immediately, and at 11 weeks is showing a smart, loving, calm, and adventurous personality. We would recommend ALI 100% to anyone interested in the breed.
David & Aisling, Meath, Ireland

Silvija and Leon were terrific in their communication, and their beautiful picture 'pupdates' once our puppy was born were weekly highlights, as well as their terrific messages outlining how the litter was doing.
Our puppy, Penny, has a wonderful temperament and is the cutest, healthiest pup in Cork.
Thanks for everything Silvija and Leon!
Smyth Family, Cork, Ireland
The house is quiet except for the steady rhythm of puppy Sonny’s breath beneath my feet.
He’s 5 and a half months old now and it’s just over 3 months since we brought him into our life and hearts. A home of two adults and three children it’s truly remarkable to see the change in everyone since his arrival. Despite the craziness a puppy brings initially, it’s truly remarkable how quickly they settle and how they make you slow down and pause too.
Since we began on our puppy journey nearly two years ago, Leon and Silvija have been nothing but engaging, helpful, friendly and supportive. You can tell how much their dogs and puppies mean to them and we felt reassured and guided every step of the way.
When we heard a litter had been born with our Sonny in it, we lived for our weekly ‘pup’date, to see and hear how they were all getting on.
From the day he came home we could already see the gentle, loving, gorgeous pup he was and the dog he would become.
We continue to feel so supported by Leon and Silvija after taking Sonny home, with questions, help and guidance continued, along with sending the occasional photos to let them know how he’s getting on.
We know nothing was, is or will be too much trouble when it comes to their beloved doggy family and for that we are truly grateful.
We highly recommend Australian Labradoodles of Ireland for the commitment and love of this gorgeous breed of dog.
We get comments and compliments everywhere we go! Thanks a million Leon and Silvija.
Sonny and his family, Dublin, Ireland
Our experience with Australian Labradoodles of Ireland and Silvija & Leon is nothing but positive.
We reached out to Silvija end 2022 and were waitlisted and expecting our puppy around the end of 2023. However, we were lucky and mother nature was on our side so our puppy was born on the 30st of April.
The entire process of first reaching out until the day of pick-up was absolutely flawless. There was lots of communication over email and WhatsApp and we were kept informed about everything every step of the way. The so-called pup-dates every week leading up to pick up day where amazing. They really made us feel part of the first weeks of our puppy’s life even though we hadn't met her yet. Lots of cute little details on their day to day, how the mommy of litter was doing and also tips and tricks for getting us ready for the arrival of our puppy. We felt really ready and informed due to all the knowledge and info Silvija & Leon shared prior with us. They are very passionate about what they do and this shows in all the care throughout the entire process. We were matched with a caramel girl from the litter and we truly feel like we received the pick of the litter. Although we predict anyone who purchases a puppy from Australian labradoodles of Ireland will feel that way.
Thank you so much, our Hazel is an absolute dream!
Lisanne & Sebastiaan. The Netherlands
Gosh where do I start! The whole process of first registering interest, to picking up your gorgeous puppy, to even ongoing advice, I can’t recommend Australian Labradooles enough. They are so professional and knowledgeable about the breed. Once you know your little puppy is being born, they keep you informed with weekly puppy updates. These include developmental changes, feeding, toilet training and not forgetting the adorable photos. I found it incredibly reassuring that from the moment the puppies are born, they are exposed to regular handling and with children. The puppies are also put through a number of test to ensure the best match between your family and the puppy. Getting a puppy is like getting a new family member, and it was so reassuring that your puppy is given the best start in life from a health, love and social perspective. If you want to know your puppy if coming from one of the best professional breeders, then look no further!
