Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)

Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) as an inherited disease occurs in many dog breeds and also in different forms. The form of progressive rod-cone degeneration (prcd-PRA) is a photoreceptor degeneration in dogs with varying ages of onset. This genetic disorder causes the degeneration of retinal cells in the eye: firstly, rod cells are affected, thus leading to progressive night blindness. Secondly, degeneration of the cone cells results in complete blindness of the dog, even in full light situations during the day.

Age of onset of clinical symptoms is typically in early adolescence or early adulthood. However, the onset of the disease may vary among different dog breeds.

Since diagnosis of retinal diseases in dogs may prove difficult, the genetic test on prcd-PRA helps to diagnose a specific disease and is also a useful tool for breeders to eliminate the mutated gene from the dog population.

Due to the volume of enquiries, we are taking a short break to ensure that we can respond to everyone. We are aiming to re-open the contact page on the 1st of February. Speak soon!

As a reminder below is our current situation:

Australian Labradoodles

Our waiting lists are now full until late 2021. If you would like first refusal on any available puppies or to be notified first on any upcoming litters, you're welcome to join our general waiting list.

Sheepadoodles

We currently do not have any available Sheepadoodles. We had hoped to have Sheepadoodle puppies sometime in 2021, however due to the BVA closing over Covid, we will not be opening a new waiting list for the time being.

Im afraid we do not breed Goldendoodles.
