LABRADOODLE INFO

Australian Labradoodle (ALD) vs Labradoodle:

Is there a difference?  YES!!!!!!  This is also why there is such a huge price difference as well!   A Labradoodle is a simple Labrador and Poodle cross.  

 

Australian Multigenerational Labradoodles are infused breeds of Labrador, Poodle, Irish Water Spaniel, Curly Coat Retriever, American Cocker Spaniel, and English Cocker Spaniel.  These breeds were infused together to improve temperament, coat, conformation, size and allergy friendliness.  

 

All ALD’s that are registered with ALAA, WALA or ALCA require extensive testing. Our extensive health testing is conducted on ALL breeding dogs at 16 weeks and every 18 months. The testing ensures you are receiving a quality pup with no life-threatening illnesses or diseases.  

WHAT DOES ALL THE NUMBERS AND LETTERS MEAN WHEN TALKING ABOUT A  LABRADOODLE?

Types of Labradoodles:

F1: The “F” stands for “filial generation”. “F1” means “the first generation” and is a common scientific term. This, in the Labradoodle breed, is the coding for a first-cross, purebred poodle to purebred Labrador Retriever. The results are mixed, as this is not the breeding of two “like” dogs, or dogs that resemble each other. F1 Labradoodles typically are moderate-shedding and have a sparse-hair to fleece coat.

 

F1B: The additional “B” refers to backcross — an F1 Labradoodle, as defined above, bred (or backcrossed) to a purebred Poodle. Again, the results are mixed, as this is not the breeding of two “like” dogs. F1B Labradoodles typically are low- to non-shedding (or as much as any dog can be non-shedding) and often have a hair or fleece coat.

 

Australian Labradoodle: The Australian Labradoodle carries the DNA of the  Labrador, Poodle, Irish Water Spaniel, Curly Coat Retriever, American Cocker Spaniel, and English Cocker Spaniel. The resulting offspring share characteristics, though some pairings of parent dogs will produce a more mixed litter. An Australian Labradoodle can be created by crossing a Poodle to another Australian Labradoodle, a Cockapoo to a Labradoodle, a Labradoodle to a Cocker Spaniel, and the like, resulting in the three-breed combination. Australian Labradoodles typically have a non-shedding coat (again, as much as any dog can be non-shedding) if both parents are non-shedding.

 

Multigen Australian Labradoodle (Multigenerational): A Multigenerational (Multigen) Australian Labradoodle comes about from the breeding of one Australian Labradoodle to another. Multigen Australian Labradoodles typically have a non-shedding coat (as much as a dog can be non-shedding) if both parents are also non-shedding.

 

Purebred Australian Labradoodle: The Merriam-Webster Dictionary first defined “purebred” in 1852 as “bred from members of a recognized breed, strain, or kind without admixture of other blood over many generations.” The AKC, meanwhile, requires four generations of like-to-like matings in their foundation service.

WHAT SIZE IS AN AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE?

 

  • ”Miniature”/”Mini” Australian Labradoodle: 14″ to 16″ to the shoulder and weigh between 15-25lbs.

  • “Medium” Australian Labradoodle: 17″ to 21″ to the shoulder and weigh between 30-45lbs.

  • “Standard” Australian Labradoodle: over 22-27″ to the shoulder and weigh 50-80 lbs.

 

 

All three Labradoodle sizes should be of equal appearance, temperament, and conformation.

SHOULD I CHOOSE A FEMALE OR MALE?

All puppies are sold with a strict spay/neuter contract.  All puppies MUST be spayed/neutered by the age of 6 months.  This eliminates the female cycle and testosterone-related behavior associated with male dogs, such as leg lifting to mark territory.  Females and males are equally amazing companions!  We have both sexes as our family pets.  They all get along very well.  

WHAT IS THE LABRADOODLE’S TEMPERAMENT?

Australian Labradoodles are an extremely intelligent breed of dog.  They are sociable, friendly, loving, affectionate, confident, loyal, and devoted.  They crave stimulation, interaction, and companionship.  Australian Labradoodles are not aggressive.  They are wonderful around everyone from children to the elderly.  Labradoodles are not only companions but also therapy, guide, and emotional support dogs.  They love to comfort you when you are sad or sick.  They love hard!
