You might be wondering, “What kind of dogs are Labradoodles, exactly?”
Labradoodles, as a breed, are lovable, intelligent and beautiful dogs. Initially bred to be service dogs, they are wonderful with children, making Labradoodles great family pets. Many other dog breeds come with a warning like “this pet is not for you if…” That is not the case with Labradoodles! The Labradoodle was bred to be a wonderful pet. They are intelligent, healthy, dogs with lovable and friendly personalities. Perhaps best of all, Labradoodles have coats that may be allergy-friendly.
“What is the difference between a regular Labradoodle and an Australian Labradoodle?”
That is a very good question. The main difference between common Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles is in the coat. An Australian Labradoodle is not just a Labrador/Poodle cross, like a common Labradoodle. The Australian Labradoodle also includes at least one other breed. This may include Curly Coat Retriever, Waterdog, or Cocker Spaniel. The additional breed was added to help perfect the coat from shedding, but not lessen the service dog qualities. Australian Labradoodles were originally developed to make service dogs available to people with allergy concerns. Generations of breeding have developed a more consistently fleece and allergy-friendly coat, whereas many common Labradoodles can have coats that shed and are not allergy-friendly.
