Variety description


The Australian Labradoodle actually originated from the search for an allergy-friendly dog that would also be suitable as a guide dog. In the late 1980s, a breeding program was developed in which a Labrador was crossed with a standard Poodle. The Labrador was used for its will-to-please and the Poodle for its intelligence and easy-care coat. Later, a few more varieties were crossed. The Australian Labradoodle has another big advantage: it has a non-shedding coat and is 98% allergy-free.


Variety description:

The Australian Labradoodle has an athletic, graceful, and compact appearance. The height x length ratio should be 10 to 12, he has angular shoulders and strong elbows. The hindquarters are moderately angulated with a short and strong hock joint. A strong extended movement at the trot which gives the appearance. In a relaxed state or during play, they will hop and only gently touch the ground. The backline should remain horizontal with a strong loin and hindquarters. They are galloping dogs and therefore the flanks should be well placed on the chest. The tail should be set low and saber-like, but a high-set gay tail is also permitted.

Different coats:

There are two different types of allowed coats, there is a third hairy coat, but it is not allergy friendly and is also hair-shedding. The two allowed coats are 'fleece' and 'wool'.

Fleece is a soft coat that can have straight, wavy or spiral curls, this coat is easy to maintain. Wool is a loose spiral coat that opens easily to the skin, this coat needs regular combing. Both coats need regular clipping. The coat length should be about 10-15cm, with no undercoat present, which is considered a fault.
