About Australian Labradoodles:
I am proud to declare my line comes from Rutland Manor, Australia, Tegan Park, Australia, and Sunsethills Australia based breeders. My goals align with their goals, continuing breeding a Multi-Generation Australian Labradoodle for the purpose to serve. My dogs have already found homes as therapy and service dogs, in the care of breeders, and just as important being a loving companion for loving families.
I have found the ideal breed which has a wonderful temperament, easy to train, intelligent and wanting to serve. This breed provides me the opportunity to put to use my years of animal raising and training knowledge. In addition, with the rigid testing required for genetically sound dogs. I am more assured that a new puppy/trained dog will live a long healthy life serving.

The Labradoodle has an interesting history, which began when Wally Conran, a member of the Royal Guide Dogs Association, crossed a Standard Poodle and a Labrador Retriever. His goal was to create a loyal guide dog with a low-shedding, hypoallergenic coat. The result of this breeding was the Labradoodle.
Conran continued his breeding program, inventing new names for each generation. Labradoodles crossed with Labradoodles were called DoubleDoodles, and so on. Unfortunately, most of the new Labradoodles were not hypoallergenic. Eventually, realizing that his project would never be as successful as he liked, Conran gave up on his breeding venture.
Other breeders soon realized that, although the project had at first been unsuccessful, Conran’s idea of allergy friendly, easily trainable guide dogs was worthwhile. New breeding programs were started. Today, in Canada and the United States, Labradoodles are still generally bred as a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. These breeders focus on raising intelligent, loyal dogs. They utilize extensive in-home socialization and rigorous health testing.
In Australia, Labradoodles are generally bred to other Labradoodles. These dogs, which are very different in many ways from the original Labradoodles, are known as Australian or Multigenerational Labradoodles. Australian Labradoodles have also had other dog types, such as Miniature Poodles, Irish Water Spaniels, Curly Coat Retrievers and American and English Cocker Spaniels, introduced into their breeding, in order to increase certain desired traits. The Irish Water Spaniel, for example, passed on a deep brown coloration, which is common in Australian Labradoodles today. The smaller Poodle sizes, as well as the Cocker Spaniels, were introduced into Labradoodle breeding in order to create a miniature size.
Today’s Australian Labradoodles are friendly, intelligent, easily-trainable and generally have allergy-friendly coats. They are utilized as guide and therapy dogs, but they also make wonderful and loving pets.For more information about this wonderful breed, please visit the web sites of the organizations formed to support the development of the breed:
