The Australian Labradoodle Association of America (ALAA)
protects the welfare of the Labradoodle
and Australian Labradoodle
breeds. The organization promotes responsible dog companionship by
cataloguing helpful information about the breeds and by offering
networking services to breeders and owners.
As a leader in this effort, we are working to make a difference.
The ALAA manages the largest database of Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles
in the world, with vital statistics for nearly 20,000 dogs and
ancestral information for more than 25,000 dogs. Our membership grows
daily, and we invite you to join us as we help to write the history of
these incredible breeds.
It brings the ALAA great pride that our hard work, dedication and commitment to Health Testing brings recognition to the Labradoodle and Australian Labradoodle as a breed! Never in the history of dog breed development has such an honor been bestowed on breed club.
OFA Board of Directors has approved a separate breed code for
Labradoodles (LD). If the dog is registered with the ALAA, OFA
forms may be submitted with the ALAA registration # and the
breed code of “LD”, to be registered in the OFA category of
“Labradoodle” instead of in the “Hybrid” category. If an application is
received without a registration number, it will be processed in the Hybrid
category. According to Eddie Dziuk of the OFA:
registration criteria for registering dogs as Labradoodles is a response
to the commitment to health demonstrated by the club not only in its
strong code of ethics requiring health screening, but also in response
to the club members’ demonstrated use of OFA evaluations.”
OptiGen has also agreed to give Labradoodle and Australian Labradoodle
their own categories. ALAA Members may notify Optigen of dogs already
tested, their test numbers, and which category they should be in and
those dogs will be transferred into the new category.
This site also serves as a resource for prospective breeders and pet
owners, with a variety of information about Labradoodle traits, breed
distinctions, best practices, dog care and more. Read about the ALAA’s
interesting beginning, learn more about our commitment to the health and
future of these dogs, and find a breeder of integrity.
We are here to serve you!!!
