What is an Australian Labradoodle? get to know the breed
A brief history of the differences in doodles and what is now known as the Australian Cobberdog in Australia. Firstly, NO they are NOT an Australian Shepherd crossed to a poodle. (That is an F1 "Aussie"-doodle) There are NO "Aussies" in them. This is a great misconception of our beloved ALD's. The reason they are called "Australian" is simply because they hail from Australia, where they were first developed as a breed. The Australian Shepherd is a herding cattle dog with an entirely different temperament and bred purpose. Not that of a personal service dog or companion animal.
In the late 80's, Wally Conron of the Royal Guide Dog Association of Australia produced the first known litter of Labradoodle pups in response to a visually-impaired women’s need for an allergy-friendly dog (due to her husband’s allergies). In response to the request, 33 samples of poodle hair and saliva were sent to the couple to see if the poodles would cause an allergic reaction to the husband’s allergies; all of the poodle samples sent still bothered his allergies. Conran decided to cross a Standard Poodle with a Labrador. Coat and saliva samples from the three pups in the Poodle and Labrador litter were sent to the Hawaiian couple for trial. One of the three samples was allergy-friendly. The allergy-friendly dog, Sultan, was then trained to become the service dog for the blind woman. Sultan was not only a service dog, but also the beloved family companion of the couple. After Conran’s initial efforts and to advance the breed farther, Tegan Park and Rutland Manor in Australia, picked up his research began breeding the Labradoodles. These pioneers were determined to produce litters with consistent conformation, coat type, and temperament. As a result, a number of other dog breeds were bred into the Labradoodle lines: Irish Water Spaniel, Curly Coat Retriever, American and the English Cocker Spaniel. The Australian Labradoodle is now considered to be a cross between the Poodle, Cocker Spaniel and Labrador Retriever, while the Labradoodle is a cross between the Labrador Retriever and Poodle only. (The F1 Labradoodle) The True Australian Labradoodle consistently produces allergy friendly coat types as well as exceptional temperments. Rutland Mannors (AKA Rutlands Australian Cobberdogs) is now known today to have successfully transformed their lines into a Recognized Breed known as the "Australian Cobberdog". With Continuing on to infuse the wheaton terrior into her lines.
We are proud to have bloodlines in close proximety to the "Australian Labradoodles" developed by Rutlands and Tegan Park. They are wonderfully tempermented, affectionate, loving, wise companion & family dogs.
