The Australian Labradoodle
The Australian Labradoodle has been developed over the years. Initially, the first Labradoodles were created when Labrador Retriever and Poodle were crossed with aim to combine the low-shedding coat of the Poodle with the gentleness and trainability of a Labrador Retriever, and to provide a guide dog suitable for people with allergies to fur and dander. Because the Labradoodle is a cross breed and not a breed, the puppies do not have consistently predictable characteristics. Australian Labradoodle was created by adding some other breeds into the mix for the early generations ( the confirmed and approved parent breeds of the Australian Labradoodle are the Poodle, Labrador Retriever, Irish Water Spaniel, Curly Coat Retriever, American Cocker Spaniel and English Cocker Spaniel ) and by carefully only breeding Australian Labradoodles with Australian Labradoodle. Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles are those who have been Multi-generation Australian Labradoodle bred to another Multi-generation Australian Labradoodle for multiple generations (minimum of 4 generations). These dogs have a breed standard, consistent looks and temperament. They are consistently low shedding. Their parent breeds are amongst the world’s most intelligent dog breeds, making Australian Labradoodle a dog with exceptional temperament. They are widely used around the world as guide and assistance dogs and they are very popular family dogs. Their non-shedding allergy friendly coat means that 95% of people with asthma and/or allergies will not have reactions to the dander or the coat of the Australian Labradoodle. The small population of people that have allergies to Australian Labradoodle are most likely allergic to dog saliva and will generally react to any breed of dog, shedding or not.
Australian Labradoodle is a dog with a lot of energy. It’s adaptable to many living conditions, but thrives when given enough exercise.
Australian Labradoodles come in three sizes, Standard 53 - 63 cm (21 - 24 inches), Medium 43 - 52 cm (17 - 20 inches) and Miniature 35 - 42 cm (14 - 16 inches).
