Can the Original Recipe Be Repeated Successfully?
At some point not far into what they were doing, the founders of the breed developed a clear idea of what they were trying to achieve, based on the characteristics they saw in some of their dogs and puppies. They knew they wanted the dogs to be able to behave in a certain manner and to work at specific tasks mostly suited towards Assistance Service Dogs and Therapy Dogs. They wanted a non-shedding coat which was easier to care for than that of many other non-shedding breeds.
They wanted their finished pure breed to be predictable so everyone who was seeking unique specific qualities in a dog could be confident in what they were getting. In order to do this, they carefully selected dogs which had the desirable qualities they wanted to keep, and any added 'ingredient' or infusion was done with a specific purpose in mind, and just as importantly at very specific periods in the development.
In January 2012 the Australian Cobberdog was officially recognised as a Pure Breed in Development by the MDBA which is a third party global Registry only for pure breed dogs.
The MDBA is the only dog registry in the world that is authorised to register the Australian Cobberdog, in order to avoid a repeat of the fractured history of the Australian Labradoodle.
