What if the genes from a Poodle and a Labrador Retriever mixed? You’d get the Australian Labradoodle!
As a crossbreed, the Australian Labradoodle originated when the Labradoodle Association of Australia and the International Australian Labradoodle Association decided to create a purebred dog, differentiated from others because of a set of traits specific to its kind. The breed standard was established back in 1997, bringing together six breeds, actually, including Poodle, Labrador Retriever, Irish Water Spaniel, Curly Coat Retriever, American Cocker Spaniel, and the English Cocker Spaniel. Though it was intended to be a purebred, the set of distinguishing characteristics hasn’t been established just yet, so the Australian Labradoodle is still considered a crossbreed.
If you’ve never seen one before, you might wonder what an Australian Labradoodle looks like, right? They’ve been described as having a teddy bear face coupled with big, round eyes and a fluffy coat. In other words, they are adorably cute! They can grow up to two feet and weigh up to 75 pounds or so, living about 13 to 15 years. For those with allergies, know that Australian Labradoodles are low shedding, low dander animals.
Are Australian Labradoodles low to moderate energy dogs? Yes. They’ll need a good half hour or hour of exercise daily. Many owners take their dogs with them on jogs and/or play fetch with them.
What about kids? Do they do well with kids? Yes. Australian Labradoodles are generally happy-go-lucky dogs known for their tenderness, loyalty and devotion. They learn quickly and may even do a few tricks. Thankfully, they’re not aggressive.
