Why Australian Labradoodles?
The Australian Labradoodle is extremely clever, intuitive, athletic, and faithful Breed. They show an intuition about their person’s emotional state or needs. Their ability to “know” is what has made the Australian Labradoodle an outstanding dog for anyone with special needs. It is also the most allergy free of the labradoodles. Their clever ability make them easy to train. Their temperament, structure, size and exquisiteness also make them a great family pet.
The Australian Labradoodle Breed is the most allergy friendly and will be the most consistent in conformation. Please read the following information to understand and compare the difference in an early generation Labradoodle (Fb1), Multigenerational Labradoodle and an Australian Labradoodle. You CANNOT create an Australian Labradoodle with just a Poodle and a Labrador Retriever. Australian Labradoodles were created back in the early 80's with a goal to create a breed that was allergy/asthma friendly with the temperament of a service dog. Both English and American Cocker Spaniels along with Irish Water Spaniels were brought into the mix to bring in qualities of allerg/asthma friendliness, low to no shedding, desired coat types and a service dog quality temperament for family companions. American Labradoodles are only a Lab/Poodle cross and back cross. An American Labradoodle will also have no Spaniel infusion. Occasionally American Labradoodle coats are not as consistent as they are with the Australian Labradoodle. Both Breeds are still very often very low to no shedding and an excellent option for someone who does not have an allergy or low shedding issue.
It is very important that you do your homework and know what it is you are looking for in your choice of pet. Like people, not all dogs are created equal, nor are all Labradoodles. As a breeder, it takes a great deal of time, patience and money to raise healthy and happy Labradoodles with wonderful temperaments, which can explain the difference in cost among breeders. It is important to ask about the parents’ testing and their pedigrees of the puppy you intend to purchase. Ask about the environment in which the puppies are raised. Keep all of this in mind, as the price of your puppy will reflect in all that goes into your new family member.
