It will be based on my analysis of an Australian Labradoodle pedigree database, registration statistics, and pedigree analysis of the most influential Australian Labradoodle dogs and bitches. It will discuss genetic diversity in the breed, how the selection of mates and types of matings manipulates the genes of the ancestors in the pedigree, and popular sire syndrome. A question and answer period will close this part.
  • The second part will discuss the genetic disorders affecting the Labradoodle, with updates from my conversations with any pertinent researchers. If you have conducted a breed health survey, I will analyze it in relation to what is seen in the field. The talk will cover the different types of genetic tests, their availability, and their proper use. It will include breeding recommendations to manage different types of genetic disorders. A question and answer period will follow.
