What is an Australian Labradoodle? They are a dog that has been bred for many generations originating from a cross between a Labrador Retriever, Poodle & Cocker Spaniel. Originally developed in Australia as an allergy-friendly guide dog for the blind.
Please don't compare Labradoodles or other Doodle breeds to Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles who are generally a calm, well-balanced dog with impressive intelligence and trainability. Doodles are comical, happy, people pleasing, sociable and love to learn new tricks. Energetic when free and gentle when handled. Their ability to recognize a person's current emotional state, is what makes the Australian Labradoodle an excellent dog for persons with special needs.
The great thing about Australian Labradoodles is that they love to do whatever you are doing! They are energetic and playful, but equally even-tempered.
I think it is important to mention that making the decision to welcome a pet into your home is a BIG deal! Please do your homework before committing! Australian Labradoodles live an average of 13-15 years (depending on size.) Every furry friend deserves a happy & loving forever home & understanding breed characteristics will help ensure they are the right fit for your home & lifestyle.

We use reasonable judgment regarding the eventual adult coat of the puppy as we assess the litter, however, as sometimes unexpected situations can and do occur, this judgment does not guarantee the eventual adult coat nor is there a guarantee of the eventual allergy-friendliness, degree of shedding or color of the coat at maturity. (For example, a dark chocolate coat color may fade to a milky chocolate color over a year or two and we are unable to know that when assessing the puppy coats.)
FLEECE COAT – Has a soft feel and should not feel like hair or wool. Can vary in degree of curl. There is a transition from puppy to adult coat and during that time the coat may become very high maintenance. Typically a completely non-shedding coat and a good coat type for those with allergies. Overall will require a minimal to moderate amount of grooming. Longer coats will require more maintenance than coats clipped short. Could be a wavy or straighter fleece.
