Australian Labradoodles are different from all other Labradoodles.
In the early days, the Australian Labradoodle was simply a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle. Dogs from this cross typically were bred to each other over future generations, whereby the Australian Dogs are also know as '' multi-generational'' Labradoodles. The Vision was to Create a dog who was born and bred to assist sick and disabled people, particularly those who suffered from dog related allergies.
Then, in the late 1980's Rutland Manor and Teagan Park, the two founders of the Australian Labradoodles as we know them today, began carefully infusing several other breeds into early generations of their lab/poodle crosses, to improve temperament, coat, confirmation, and size. The infused breeds include Irish Water Spaniel as well as the English Cocker Spaniel. The resulting Labradoodles subsequently have been bred to each other continuing the multi-generational tradition. Please see http://www.rutlandmanor.com/-impossible-dream.html for more info.
Today, Australian Labradoodles are wonderful, intelligent dogs with lush coats that are non- shedding and allergy friendly than other types of Labradoodles such as first generation Lab/Poodle crosses or first generation crosses bred back to the poodle. Even when the other types of Labradoodle are bred for generations, the result is not an Australian Labradoodle as the attributes of the infused breeds were not included in their ancestry. We have had many people with dog allergies purchase dogs from us and have had no adverse reactions to our dogs. 973-697-8896
