The Labradoodle, originated in
Australia by The Guide Dog Association of Australia,
when the association received a enquiry from a blind
lady in Hawaii, requesting a guide dog that would not
aggrevate allergies. Mr. Wally Conron was the driving
force behind this program, which bred a Labrador to
the Standard Poodle. The Australian Labradoodle, continues
to be the gold standard by which all labradoodles are
After years of research, the Australian
lines (from Rutland Manor and Tegan Park) are brilliantly
developed. They have developed Labradoodles that are
consistent in gentle temperaments, allergy/asthma friendly,
non shedding coats and wonderful intelligence. These
are the qualities we want in our dogs. We have benefited
from their incredible knowledge and expertise, and
we continue this incredible line!
Overall, the Australian Labradoodle
is a fun loving, quiet, calm yet comical, loving companion
for families as well as a fantastic service animal,
being easily trainable, loyal and intelligent.
The Australian Labradoodle is
not a recognized breed as yet, however, many breeders
are working towards developing a breed standard for
the future recognition of the Labradoodle.
The Australian Labradoodle Club
of America has been formed to provide a place for breeders
and owners of the True Australian Labradoodle to join
forces in striving to maintain the soundness and integrity
of the breed.
