Australian Labradoodle |Australia|

Australian Labradoodle |Australia|

Labradoodles are the result of Labrador Retriever and Poodle heritage. They combine the best qualities of both breeds and have won peoples’ hearts in a relatively short amount of time. These lovely dogs combine a largely non-shedding, low-dander coat with great personalities, high intelligence, and good trainability. They are energetic but generally calm, with those from a Standard Poodle cross exhibiting particularly good temperaments. The Labradoodle is bred in three sizes: miniature, medium, and standard.

History

The development of the Labradoodle is credited to Wally Cochran of the Royal Guide Dogs in Victoria, Australia, in the late 1980s. He was approached by a blind woman from Hawaii, whose husband was allergic to dogs and who hoped Cochran could produce a guide dog that would be suitable for her home. Cochran’s breeding program was extremely successful with a large percentage of his dogs becoming guide dogs, and ensuing media coverage saw an explosion in the popularity of the new hybrid breed. These animals are now found all over the world, and although they are not yet officially recognized as a breed by the various Kennel Clubs, it seems likely that they will be in the future.

Puppy coats do not typically trigger allergies in people, but when the adult coat comes in, it might. While Labradoodle coats (fleece and wool type) are more suitable for allergy sufferers, they are not “non-allergenic.”
