Australian Labradoodle breed standard accordingly to ALFA-Europe

The ALFA-Europe Breed stan­dard for the ori­gi­nal Austra­lian Labradoodle

A breed stan­dard is he guide­line which descri­bes the ideal cha­rac­te­ri­stics, tem­pe­ra­ment and appe­arance of a breed. Actu­ally just a few dogs of its type will fit this ideal descrip­tion in every respect. An ori­gi­nal Austra­lian Labra­do­odle shows no excep­tion.
The ori­gi­nal Austra­lian Labra­do­odle isn’t a reco­gni­zed breed by the FCI, but ALFA-Europe is invo­lved in the pro­cess of ful­fil­ling the neces­sary con­di­tions to come to reco­gni­tion in the near future.

Of course a dog isn’t just his phe­no­type, his body struc­ture or his beau­ti­ful coat.
His sound­ness, gene­tic vita­lity, his hypo­al­ler­ge­nic quali­ties and his intu­itive cha­rac­ter are essen­tial and are much more impor­tant than his appearance.

In England as well in Ame­rica (as we can see within the FCI) they have a dif­fe­rent descrip­tion of the breed. ALFA-Europe will fol­low the breed stan­dard bro­adly outli­ned by one of its foun­ders: Beverly Manners.

The breed stan­dard as descri­bed by ALFA EUROPE is being trans­la­ted to english at the moment. In its full ver­sion it is publi­shed on
