About the Breed
We breed Australian Labradoodles, and are members of ALAA. The Australian Labradoodles were originally bred in the 1980s with the intent of creating the perfect guide dog. The intent was to create an allergy and asthma friendly dog with low to non shedding coats and the temperament of a guide dog.
Throughout the 1990s breeders in Australia continued to breed Labradoodles with the aim to produce litters with consistent conformation, coat type, and temperament. In the late 90s a number of other types of dogs were bred into Labradoodle line to assist in this effort. Currently the Australian Labradoodle is considered a cross between a Poodle, Cocker Spaniel and Labrador Retriever, while a Labradoodle is considered a cross between a Labador Retriever and Poodle only.
Coat patterns in the Australian Labradoodle (according to the ALAA) include:
- All solid colors
- Colors of parchment, lavender, café and chocolate may have dark amber eyes; liver noses, eye rims and lips; and dark nails.
- Caramel-colored dogs may have dark amber to pale hazel-green eyes; liver noses, eye rims and lips; and self-colored to dark nails.
- Colors of gold, red, black, blue and silver must have very dark eyes; black noses, eye rims and lips; and black or self-colored nails.
- Colors of chalk and cream may have either pigmentation of dark amber to pale hazel-green eyes; liver noses, eye rims and lips; and self coloured to dark nails or very dark eyes; black noses, eye rims and lips; and black or self-coloured nails.
- These colors may appear in one of the following patterns: These need to read the same as the Labradoodle
We choose an Australian Labradoodle for our family because of the consistent temperament, ease of training and allergy friendly aspects of the breed. This consistency found across the breed is from years of selective breeding in the Australian Labradoodle line.
