Australian Labradoodles are known for their gentle and loving
temperaments, athleticism and beautiful curly, wavy or fleece coats. Gorgeous
coloring of chocolate, red, apricot, cream, black, caramel and gold are
possible. They are very intelligent, low to no shedding, asthma and allergy
friendly. They are bred for the best health a dog could wish for.
The Australian Labradoodle club of America states: “In the
early days, the Australian Labradoodle was simple a cross between a Labrador
retriever and a standard poodle. Dogs from this cross typically were bred to
each other over future generations, whereby the Australian dogs were also known
as “multi-generational” Labradoodles
Then in the late 1980’s Tegan park and Rutland manor, the
two founders of the Australian Labradoodle (as we know it today) began
carefully infusing several other breeds into early generations of the
lab/poodle crosses to improve the temperament, coat, confirmation and size. The
infused breeds include the Irish water spaniel as well as the American and
English cocker spaniel. Resulting Labradoodles subsequently have been bred to
each other, continuing the multi-generational tradition.
Today Australian Labradoodles are wonderful, intelligent
dogs with lush coats that are more reliably low to non-shedding and allergy
friendly than other types of Labradoodles such as the original first generation
lab/poodle crosses, or first generation crosses bred back to poodles.re.
