What is an Australian Labradoodle?

Please note: I DO NOT breed F1 or F1b labradoodles. I only breed AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLES. Please read below for information about this breed.

A first generation labradoodle (F1) is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a poodle. F1 labradoodles are definitely not recommended for those with allergies or for people who want a non-shedding dog.

A backcross labradoodle (F1B) is a cross between a first generation labradoodle (F1) and a poodle. Typically I have found that there is still not a consistent look in the F1B generation (coat types still vary tremendously), and sometimes the lab-like stocky structure is lost.

An Australian Multigenerational Labradoodle has ancestors that go back to the foundation breeders in Australia. The Australian Labradoodle has been bred to have a non-shedding coat. I have chosen to focus specifically on the Australian Labradoodle in order to have a greater consistency in my litters. The consistency that I am referring to is temperament, coat type, and body structure. I am not closed off to bringing in earlier generation dogs to further the gene pool, but my ultimate goal is a family-oriented, non-shedding labradoodle. For this reason, I am focusing on the Australian Labradoodle.

Labradoodle Sizes

The labradoodle comes in 3 different sizes.

A MINI sized Labradoodle ranges from 14-16 inches. They are typically 15-25 lbs.

A MEDIUM sized Labradoodle ranges from 17-20 inches tall. Medium labradoodles weigh 30-45 lbs.

A STANDARD sized Labradoodle ranges from 21-25 inches tall. They range in weight from 50-65 lbs.
