About Australian Labradoodles

Australian Labradoodle History

 

The labradoodle origin (poodle x labrador) was devised in the 1980’s when Wally Conran brought the two breeds together to try and create a guide dog for a blind woman with allergies. The litters he produced were varied in size, temperament and coat, the inconsistency of the crosses were not ideal.


Eventually two Australian based breeders, Tegan Park and Rutland Manor took the concept of what Conran was trying to achieve and infused into the breeding line of Labradoodles a further four breeds to gain a more standard type in terms of coat, weight, temperament and size.


The Australian Labradoodle is made of the following six breeds : Labrador, Poodle, Cocker Spaniel (English/American), Curly Coated Retriever and the Irish Water Spaniel.

These breeds are all highly active and intelligent.

Please note, my breeding lines originate from Rutland Park and Tegan Manor and are independently assessed and confirmed by the WALA (Worldwide Association of Australian Labradoodles) of which I am a registered breeder, as being authentic Australian Labradoodles.

 

I do not breed Australian ‘type’ or 50/50 litters (these are NOT genuine Australian Labradoodles), it can be a case of buyer beware I’m afraid, so please do your research, check the pedigree, check the parent breeds and ask difficult questions of the breeder

Australian Labradoodle Purpose

 

The Australian Labradoodle was not bred for a specific purpose, except to be a great active, intelligent, fun, family pet.

 

This breed have over time proved themselves as a breed to be very easy to train, friendly, calm, unphased and have great energy and joy of life.
