What is An Australian Labradoodle?
An Australian Labradoodle is NOT a Labradoodle.
Labradoodle's originated in the 1980s by a man called Wally Conran of Royal Guide Dogs to create a hypoallergenic dog that would be asthma, allergy friendly and also a therapy service dog. Thus Wally created the labradoodle; a Poodle x Labrador =Labradoodle however Wally didn't quite achieve the desired result. It was two Breeders in Australia called Tegan Park and Rutland Manor that took the labradoodle breed that Wally had created and infused a further 4 more breeds and created the ‘Australian labradoodle service dog’ which provided a more consistent, standardized breed in terms of coat, temperament, and size.
Only Genuine Australian labradoodles are multigenerational and can only be bred with another Australian Labradoodle to be truly authentic i.e Australian Labradoodle X Australian Labradoodle =
All of my lines here at Lexacious Australian Labradoodles can be traced back to Tegan Park & Rutland manor so you cab be assured you are getting a genuine 100% Australian Labradoodle.
Australian labradoodles have a total of 6 breeds fused together namely the: Poodle, Labrador, Cocker Spaniel (English & American), the Irish Water Spaniel and the Curly Coat Retriever.
The Australian Labradoodle breed is non aggressive. They have a very special type of intuitive manner with all those that they meet. They are full of character and have unique, funny personalities. They make fantastic family pets, they are sociable, Happy, very intelligent, and easy to train. They absolutely love water & getting wet is a must. They like to hunt, weather that's chasing squirrels in the park or sniffing out treats from a passer by. They are great companion dogs that do not like to be left alone (this includes following you to the toilet; they follow you everywhere)! They love to please you, are amazing with other animals & children, and have have a distinctive teddy bear low to non shedding odour free coat.

3 Coat Types:
Hair- this type is less allergy friendly and tends to shed a little, like a regular dog it is flat, coarse and doesn't tend to grow much in length.
Fleece-wavy or curly this is a non shedding coat, that is soft wavy, can also be curly with spirals and long in length. this is your typical Australian Labradoodle coat type it is best suited for allergy/asthma sufferers however anyone that has an allergy must first meet with one of our doodles beforehand as there is no guarantee.
Wool- is your typical poodle type curly coat texture, again this is also non shedding and best suited for allergy sufferers.
Please Note: there is no such guarantee that a coat type can be 100% hypoallergenic and does not shed. Some people can also be allergic not only to the dogs dander but also the dogs saliva.
