About Australian Labradoodles

The original intent behind the breed was to create a canine companion that was highly intelligent, easily trainable, and allergy-friendly. By breeding a Labrador Retriever with a Poodle, Wally Conron (Australia’s Royal Guide Dogs manager), created the first Australian Labradoodle. Over time, with purposeful breeding, other breeds were also infused to bring a careful selection of temperaments and physical characteristics into the breed. Today the rich lineage found in the Australian Labradoodle’s DNA is a multi-generational infusion of Poodle, Labrador Retriever, and English and American Cocker Spaniel. While Labradoodle is still part of the name, Australian Labradoodles differ from other “doodles” in appearance, temperament, and coat type.  ALAA Australian Labradoodles have consistency in appearance, temperament, intelligence, trainability, and a low- to no-shedding coat. Designed for human companionship, Australian Labradoodles make a loving, loyal, fantastic addition to families.

Caring For Your Pet

Our 25lb Mini-Australian Labradoodle Annabelle is our pride and joy. She is an absolute angel. Annabelle will be two years old in October 2020. She is one of the smartest, kindest, and most playful pups you can imagine. From the moment we brought her home at 8 weeks old from Spring Valley Doodles in Kennett Square, PA, she was instantly the STAR of our family. Annabelle is always up for a car ride, a shopping trip, or a beach day. Australian Labradoodles are some of the most trainable dogs. Annabelle is always able to put on a show for our friends and family. She loves all the attention and performs great under pressure. She’s never met a human or dog she has not wanted to play with. She has a wonderfully gentle side to her and is great with kids. Annabelle has an intuition about her in which she knows just what her people always need. We love her so much.

“During my internet research on ALD’s I was fortunate enough to find the ALAA website.  The ALAA provides a wealth of knowledge, from breed information and care to member breeders committed to the health of the breed.   I decided an ALD was the right companion for me and found my caring breeder from the ALAA directory.”
