History of the Australian Labradoodle Breed
The Australian Labradoodle was bred to be the perfect pet. We spent months researching and talking with breeders to find exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a gentle, smart, eager to please, non-shedding dog which now looking at, sounds impossible to find all of that in one package, but we did. The Australian Labradoodle was a labor of love that was started back in the '80s by Royal Guide dogs. They were originally bred in Australia but do not have Australian in them. Their name simply comes from where they originated. They were bred to be the world's first hypoallergenic guide dog, for visually impaired families who were allergic to dogs by the Australian Guide Dog Services. They were determined to produce litters with consistent conformation, coat type, and temperament. In order to achieve this, they introduced Irish Water Spaniels, Curly Coat Retrievers, and English Cocker Spaniels into the lines. The difference between an Australian Labradoodle and a normal Labradoodle is that introduction of these other breeds into the line to perfect the desired allergy-friendly coats whereas the Labradoodle is a Labrador Retriever bred to a poodle. Today we breed Australian Labradoodles to Australian Labradoodles that consistently produce allergy-friendly coat types along with exceptional temperaments. The Australian Labradoodles we breed are the best of the best! They are bred based not just on looks but on personality.
