What is an Australian Labradoodle?

Contrary to popular belief, there is no Australian Sheppard in the Australian Labradoodle.  

A multi-generational bloodline is the key to the consistency of the Australian Labradoodle.  In the late 1980's, Tegan Park and Rutland Manor, the two founders of the Australian Labradoodle, began carefully infusing several other breeds to improve temperament, coat, conformation, and size.  The infused breeds included Irish Water Spaniel and the American and English Cocker Spaniel.  The resulting labradoodles subsequently have been bred to each other, continuing the Multi-Generational breed.

Today, Australian Labradoodles are wonderful, intelligent dogs with lush coats that are more reliably low to non-shedding and allergy friendly than other types of Labradoodles, such as first generation labrador/poodle crosses, or first generation crosses bred back to poodles.  Even when the other types of labradoodles are bred on for generations, the result is not an Australian Labradoodle, as the attributes of the infused breeds were not included in their ancestry.
