In the 1980's the labradoodle was bred by
Australian breeder Wally Conron for the Royal
Guide Dogs in Victoria Australia. The idea behind
his cross of breeding the Labrador Retriever and
Standard Poodle was to produce an allergy-free,
non-shedding dog that was gentle, and had an
easily trainable temperate. This was first inspired
by a vision impaired woman.
The labradoodle was then improved from Australian
Labradoodle founders by introducing breeds of the
Spaniel into the labradoodle mix. With this infusion
the genetic health of the labradoodle was improved
along with the complete elimination of shedding. The
Australian Labradoodle has become a
multi-generaltion breed that has organizations that
protect and regulate the overall integrity that the
Australian Labradoodle proves to be.
Currently the Australian Labradoodles come in 3 sizes miniature, medium, and standard. With either a wool or fleece coat. These coats can range from wavy to very curly and a variety of colors.
At Butterfield Australian Labradoodles we strive to abide by the Australian Labradoodle Organizations standards by testing our dogs to ensure that the their genetic health is of top quality.
