History of The Australian Labradoodle
The Australian Labradoodle breed started in the 1980s by Wally Conran for the Royal Guide Dogs in Victoria, Australia. The goal was to create a breed that was allergy and asthma friendly with the temperament of a service dog. He started with a Poodle and a Labrador Retriever as he felt this mix would be excellent for the attributes of temperament and coat that would be needed for a guide dog. Tegan Park and Rutland Manor continued the development and selective breeding started by Wally Conran.
The Australian Labradoodle is good with children and is easy to train. It gets along well with other dogs. It is extremely clever, sociable and joyful, and quick to learn unusual or special tasks. Active, a little comical at times, it can attempt to outsmart its owner if undisciplined. It is very important that you are this dog’s firm but calm, consistent pack leader and provide him with daily mental and physical exercise to avoid behavior issues. Friendly, though obviously loyal to its own family, this dog is non-aggressive.
