ALAA Dog Registry

Never in the history of breeding has a class of dog catapulted to stardom as quickly as the Labradoodle and Australian Labradoodle have done. A new breed of dog usually gains acceptance from traditional kennel clubs after decades of careful breeding, but the Labradoodle and Australian Labradoodle are not yet ready for breed recognition. The ALAA is working to change that, but until we do, these special animals are in a very vulnerable position.

Our extensive database serves as a reference for potential breeders, cataloging DNA profiles of breeding stock from any registered and accredited breeder. The database also lists the health status and testing results of dogs owned by those breeders. 

Given Labradoodles’ explosive popularity, it has become vital for emerging breeders to have easy access to a central registry so that, when conducting research to avoid inbreeding or careless breeding, they can find pedigrees and health testing information for quality breeding stock.

With fragmented organizations springing up across the world, each with its own registries and set of guidelines, the threat of duplicate records has grown tremendously. This sets the stage for confusion, breeding errors and, ultimately, the ruin of Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles as companion animals.

Example of duplication: Consider breeder prefixes. These are the words each breeder uses in front of a registered breeding dog’s name. Without a central registry of breeders, it’s possible that a particular kennel name — “XYZ Labradoodles,” for instance — could be used by two or more breeders. Should those breeders give their breeding dogs the same name — let’s say “Toby” — then the breeding community could be circulating genetic material from more than one dog named “XYZ’s Toby.” The potential for mistakes, whether from inbreeding or some other disastrous pairing, is considerable and grave.

The ALAA collaborates with other organizations to maintain a comprehensive registry for the Labradoodle and Australian Labradoodle. The registry is supervised by the breeding community at large and kept at arms’ length from any individual breeder.

The ALAA welcomes your input as we continue to develop this resource. If you share the ALAA’s vision — the protection and development of healthy, good-natured Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles for future generations of dog lovers — then connect with the breeding community at our message board to share your background and ideas.

Your support is vital if we are to carry out our mission. Consider supporting the ALAA by:
  • Becoming a member! Register your Labradoodle or Australian Labradoodle even if he or she is a desexed family companion.
  • Registering your kennel.
  • Signing up for a newsletter-only membership.
  • Making yourself heard at our message board.
  • Pedigree request.
The ALAA Registry is available to all breeder members as part of your membership. Pedigrees are available for an additional $15 each. We will provide a pedigree detailing as many as four generations, though we cannot guarantee that each pedigree goes back so far. If the dog in question is owned by an ALAA breeder, the breeder will be notified about the request.

The ALAA enforces a no-refund policy for all monies paid to the association, including pedigree requests, membership applications and dues, kennel fees, dog registration and other fees.
