ABOUT THE AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE
Standard Australian Labradoodle are 50-55+ pounds with a wavy fleece or wool coat . They have well balanced temperaments, are active when their people are, and mellow and chill when their people are relaxing.
What is a Multi Generational Australian Labradoodle?
A multigenerational Australian Labradoodle is a puppy who has a verified multigenerational pedigree. This means their parents come from the Australian Labradoodles linage and are registered with one of the 3 ALD clubs in America. These puppies are products of generations of breeding time and investment. Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles are low to no-shedding and allergy-friendly.
What is the difference between a Labradoodle (aka American Labradoodle) and Australian Labradoodle?
When you glance at them, American Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles may look similar, but a registered ALD's beauty goes much deeper than just their looks. An ALD, i.e. Australian Labradoodle, has been bred to have a more consistent conformation, a next to non- shedding coat, and the fantastic personality that goes with an ALD, as well as having extensive DNA and health testing prior to breeding. Be sure your breeder is registered with a recognized Australian Labradoodle club and, most important, that the breeder has registered their litter. Litters cannot be registered if both parents have not had health checks and verifiable pedigrees. That way you will know that you breeder is breeding true ALDs and doing it ethically.
As mentioned above, Australian Labradoodles are predominantly non-shedding and as close to hypoallergenic as a dog can get.
What are the most common Labradoodle colors and do they change colors?
There are numerous colors and combination of colors. The most common colors are: Black, red, cream and chocolate. Parti colors are becoming more common and popular. Check out the WALA site for more information on colors.
Labradoodles frequently change color or fade as they reach adulthood. Typically, Labradoodle puppies change color during their first year from birth. This is due to the fading gene they inherit from the Poodle’s side of their lineage. This gene is usually more prevalent in black, brown, and chocolate colors. You can typically expect a black Labradoodle to fade into silver, blue, or gray tones while the chocolate Labradoodles tend to become a feathered tan, cream, or silver as they age.
Why are Labradoodles registered?
There are 3 established Australian Labradoodle clubs in the USA. Our Australian Labradoodles, aka ALDs, are registered with The Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association. We also have some of our dogs registered with AKC as Canine Companions.
The Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association, aka WALA, verifies each pedigree for authenticity. This is your guarantee that your puppy is a true ALD. Also, to have litters registered, all breeder members must fulfill extensive health testing requirements on the parents of the puppies before being bred. Again, make sure your new puppy is registered!
