If people visit websites such as, www.highlandsaustralianlabradoodles.com, they might be surprised to find that there is a long waiting list of people that are trying to get their hands on a cobberdog right now. There are hundreds of new cobberdog breeders that strating business each year, but there simply are not enough new cobberdog breeders to meet the huge demand for them. Cobberdogs have become popular in movies, and featured on popular TV shows, every day there is a new source of excitement spreading about the cobberdog breed. In this article we are going to look at why it has been so hard to keep up with the country’s desire for these precious Australian cobberdog puppies, and how industry insiders are trying to bring more puppies to their customers.
Perhaps the biggest reason why cobberdogs are so scarce today has to do with the fact that there is a huge demand in other countries for the animal that is even bigger than our own. Over the last ten years, cobberdogs have become one of the most sought after breeds in China. There are so many people in China that want cobberdogs that many of our largest national breeders have moved their business to China. If done correctly, a cobberdog breeder can make a ton of cash in this country, but not even close to as much as they can make working in other parts of the world. In 2005, almost half of the cobberdogs being born in our country were then going to people living overseas. The international cobberdog trade has made it that much harder for people here to find a cobberdog.
Apart from the global demand for cobberdogs, another factor which makes it harder to find cobberdogs than other types of dog breed is that they are somewhat difficult to breed. It takes cobberdogs longer to reach an age when they can reproduce, and even when they do have puppies, their litters are smaller than those of other breeds. A cobberdog breeder with a dozen healthy cobberdogs can only expect to have a dozen new puppies each year. The ffact that cobberdog puppies are harder to come by than other puppies has prompted many people to make agreements with breeders to receive puppies before the cobberdog puppies have even been conceived. The difficulty of breeding and the low birth numbers make it very hard for people to get cobberdog puppies.
One of the ways that breeders have attempted to keep up with demand for the cobberdogs has been to pay private dog owners to breeed their pets and sell them their cobberdogs. The idea of having owners of cobberdogs provide more puppies is working out well, after all the majority of cobberdog owners are excellent care govers for their animals, so the puppies are likely to be born strong and healthy. Using independent cobberdog owners to breed more dogs has contributed to an increase of around five thousand new cobberdog puppies annually, which is a good start but still far away from the number of cobberdog puppies which will be needed to supply all the people out there who dream of owning a cobberdog.
