The Australian Labradoodle is many generations removed from the original Poodle x Lab cross.
HISTORY OF THE LABRADOODLE
In the mid 1970’s The Australian Guide Dog Association received an inquiry from a blind lady, requesting a guide dog that wouldn't affect her allergies.
This was the beginning of the development of the Labradoodle. Since then the breed has been developed over generations with the introduction of the Spaniel to develop the Australian Labradoodle. This gives the Australian Labradoodles the beautiful soft silky fleece coat.
Because Labradoodles were bred as service dogs for people with allergies and special needs, they are incredibly intuitive dogs, they can pick up on your mood and know just what to do, this makes them very good with children (and adults) with Autism. And all with the added bonus of a lovely low to non-shedding coat that doesn't have a 'doggy' odour.
