Authentic Australian Labradoodles were developed in the 1970s and 1980s in Australia because of the need for a hypoallergenic service dog. People fell in love with the new breed and soon there was an overwhelming demand for the Authentic Australian Labradoodle. The evident need for breeders to develop a standard for this fascinating dog gave rise to the establishment of two breeding and research centers for Authentic Australian Labradoodles in Australia.
In 1989, Rutland Manor Labradoodle Breeding and Research Center was organized in Darnum, Victoria. The Tegan Park Labradoodle Breeding and Research Center located in Seaspray, Victoria was established at the same time. Both carefully controlled breeding programs, using only the finest genetically healthy dogs and breeding for specific traits of temperament, soundness, and coat. In 1998, Tegan Park introduced the “miniature” Authentic Australian Labradoodle to the public.
When these were crossed with the standard Authentic Australian Labradoodle, the medium Authentic Australian Labradoodle resulted. Thus three sizes are currently distinguished: the miniature Authentic Australian Labradoodle is 14-17 inches tall, the medium Authentic Australian Labradoodle is 18-21 inches, and the standard Authentic Australian Labradoodle is 22-26 inches. The breeding centers selectively bred away from the shedding coat.
The Multi-Generation Authentic Australian Labradoodle is a unique and fantastic dog that has become world-renowned for its qualities. The Multi-Generation Authentic Australian Labradoodle is a dog that has had over 22 years in its development.
The Authentic Australian Labradoodle foundation stock includes 6 different parent breeds that have resulted in the Authentic Australian Labradoodle as seen today.
Because of the time and effort these responsible breeders/researchers have put into the Multi-Generation Authentic Australian Labradoodle, these multi-generation dogs have developed into a well-rounded breed with high vigor, great health, intelligence, service dog disposition, and non-shedding coat.
These Authentic Australian Labradoodles are perfect for families seeking an easy-to-train, family-oriented, allergy/asthma friendly, companion or assistance dog with an easy-to-maintain coat. These Authentic Australian Labradoodles are available from only a few select breeders.
