Australian labradoodle Information

You find here information about Australian Labradoodle breed.

Labradoodles are very gentle, social, very easy to train. Lovely companion with a fantastic teddy bear look. Because of their intelligence and desire of pleasure, they are excellent therapeutic and assistive dogs and family members.

The roots of Australian Labradoodle’s history are in the 1970s when Wally Conran Royal want allergy and asthma friendly dog breed with the characteristics of the guide dog.

The breed’s breeding work was continued in Australia and Labradoodle was defined as a breeding target line for obtaining the right structure, coat and nature of the breed.

Good to know

The Australian labradoodle is often mixed with a poodle and Labrador puppy, they usually also called ”labradoodles.” It causes confusion. Australian Labradoodle is not the same thing.

Careful breeding and breeding work has been done to ensure the Australian Labradoodle temperament and health since 1970. When looking for new family members for yourself /family I recommend doing a thorough background work. If the dog is inexpensive, it is probably a cheap for a reason. All labradoodles are not the same. It is therefore important that you first come to know and be assured that you will get what you are acquiring. It takes time but gives you a healthy and happy Australian labradoodle.

What are labradoodle sizes?

     ”Standart”  53-63 cm. Weight 20 kg – 28 kg.
     ”Medium”  43-53 cm. Weight 13 kg to 20 kg.
     ”Mini” 35-43 cm. Weight 7 kg to 13 kg.

Australian Labradoodle Coat

The maintenance of the coat takes a lot of time and resources throughout the life of the dog. Coat grows in length and requires constant care, cutting and brushing. Taking care of coat it will give you and your furry friend a lot of common moments. Beautiful and well-made coat makes the dog feel comfortable and collects many adorable glances.

Fleece coat is very soft. Fleece coat can be a ”wavy”, straight or curved spiral. Fleece coat is wool turkey easier to care for.The wool or wool is more like a sheepskin-like curly or spiral. Wool coat is Fleece Turkey’s coarser than felt.

Australian labradoodle coat care

Puppy coat is very easy to care it is also good to make little grooming,  so the puppy gets used to  the coat grooming. Small trim between the eyes and the muzzle is most often needed 3-4 months old. We give a small trimming course for our puppy family who get good tips for home-made care and grooming.

The first challenging time for Turkish treatment is when the coat changes about 8 months to 1 year when you notice the first coats appear. Then more often the coat treatment is needed to avoid tangling. The turkey is kept clean and clear. Dirty coat makes it cheaper.

Depending on the coat quality, the coat needs to comb 2-5 times a month all the way down to the bottom.  Always hair up to the skin, otherwise matted may be missed.  The comb removes the matted coat and effectively collects the dead hair. Karsta does not hurt the dog’s skin and coat. Be allways gentle! If the coat is badly damaged, it may be easier to cut the scissors out of the coat. Coat will grow back quickly.  It is also important, therefore, to keep the fur clean.

Trimming
Labradoodle coat can also be shorter, so the coat will be easier to treat.  In fact, I use the Oster A5 trimmer. It is worth investing in a good trimmer, the cheap machines / blades do not cut the fine hair very well. In fact I do not recommend a very short coat (less than 2,5 cm). Coat protects the dog’s skin from the sun, for example.

Always remember to comb, open mats, wash and dry labradoodle before trimming. Washing the coat is tightening the matt and it is very difficult to comb out.  Dirt coat quickly dulls the blade.

Start trimming from the most sensitive places (the back, the stomach, ears) as the trimmer warms up when using.

Since the labradoodle has to be trimmed regularly, it is good to teach the puppy from small to stand on the grooming table. Be careful not to drop the puppy. Also, do not let the adult dog jump off the table,  the dog should be picked up and removed from the table.

Small trimming needs to be done regularly to keep the bottom of the paws and the put area clean. The puppy must practice several times during the first few months of nail clipping, coat, teeth and ears care. If the puppy is restless during the activities, it is necessary to practice more often. If you can not handle the fur coat with the puppy Please contact the breeder or your experienced trimmer quickly.

Washing a labradoodle

Labradoodle coat needs to be comb coat before washing. Always remember to dilute the shampoo for washing, the ”raw” shampoo takes coat fat.

Why not single-coat should be trimmed too short?

One-legged labradoodle coatshould be cut regularly, but it should not be too short. The best way would be to cut or a trimmerd and leaving coat a bit longer. Too short coat can have negative effects on dog health.

If the labradoodle single coat is run too short it should be avoided in sunshine, cold and  coolness as well. 

Trimming guide ”Teddybear”

Before and after trimming

– Tail may be longer than 10-15 cm.
The other section can be cut about 3-6 cm.
Ears almost in the shape of ear. Leave the eyebrow. Leave longer hair on the ears. Not recommended for long spaniel style (hygiene).
Top coat length 5 to 10 cm.
Cut over the eyes, leaving a length of about 5 cm. Please don’t  cut the eyelashes, they protect the eyes.
The muzzle is cut into a teddy-bear-like ”circle”.
– 
Leave ”doodleboots” (not as short as a poodle).

If you do not cut coat yourself, you can display a picture as a model for a trimmer.

What is a therapy dog?

The purpose of a therapist is to bring people a joy and happyness for their days. The therapy dog and the owner are visiting peoples home.

Where do the therapy dogs go?
nursing homes, hospitals and children’s homes to meet people. Terapy dogs give people’s love, joyfull and happynes. Scientific studies have shown that interaction between pet and humans helps relieve depression, reduce blood pressure, and increase feelings of well-being. In addition, dogs get people to smile, laugh and forget about the possible sorrow for a while.

Where is Terapist Training organized?
Dogs with friendly and peaceful character can be used as therapeutic dogs. Dogs go through the tests of a therapeutic dog and the dogs who are suitable for the task are trained in therapy dogs. Terapist training is organized by, for example, Ketteliini, some vocational schools, open universities and training centers offer animal assisted coaching, and the Kennel Club.

How to identify a responsible breeder?

Here are some of the things you can to find a good responsible Australian labradoodle breeder.

Does the breeder include the Australian labradoodle breeders’ association and register a litter? Organizations that oversee breeding and breeding include: ALAEU, MDBA, ALAA, ALA and ALCA.

Our story


My first dog was a dalmatian named Royal. This white/black haired spotted dog was a cheerful, playful, very gentle boy, and always smiling to the guests (the teeth was visible) as some of the Dalmatian do. <3

Years later we thought it would be time for dogs and small-scale breeding. Dalmatians for their gentle nature of course, wash my wish list, but because of the great hair loss they had, i have to give up on the dream. We heard of an allergy-friendly Australian Labradoodle with a really soft, cute teddy bear looking, and easy to train. We went through exploring huge amount of information about Australian labradoodles and we were in contact with breeders in Australia, England, the Netherlands and America. We asked and read the experiences of the new Ald owners on the breed and watched videos from around the world from Australian labradoodles. The more we read and saw, the more secure we were from the line of our new family member.

That’s how we ended up with the Australian labradoodle. And we have been very happy and happy about our decision. <3
