Why an Australian Labradoodle?

New breed (Austra­lian Labra­do­odle) quic­kly gained popu­la­rity — espe­cially in the Uni­ted Sta­tes, where today is on the top lists of the most popu­lar bre­eds. Vir­tu­ally over­ni­ght, the num­ber of Labra­do­odle bre­eders grown like “mush­ro­oms after rain”.

Howe­ver at this point I would like to pay par­ti­cu­lar atten­tion to how very impor­tant it is to distin­gu­ish the true Austra­lian Labra­do­odle from “ a Labradoodle”.

The main goal for the most new bre­eders, unfor­tu­na­tely, was to achieve as high pro­fits and as soon as possi­ble. Many wan­ted to achieve, what breed deve­lo­pers have done for many years.

Is it really possi­ble to “copy” in such a short period of time, some­thing that the pre­cur­sors have wor­ked on for over 20 years?

Two major rese­arch cen­ters — Rutland Manor and Tegan Park (not func­tio­ning any­more) wor­ked on the ‘sta­bi­lity’ of the breed, taking into acco­unt the main objectives:

1. Dogs could not shade
2. Their fur sho­uld not cause aller­gic reac­tions
3. Focu­sing on selec­tion of cer­tain tra­its of tem­pe­ra­ment
4. Only dogs that meet the highest health stan­dards sho­uld be accep­ted for breeding

The main goal of the Austra­lian pio­ne­ers was to breed the per­fect dog, that also would be a hypo­al­ler­ge­nic dog. Years in the direc­tion of a con­scious selec­tion of an appro­priate coat, tem­pe­ra­ment and health stan­dards have led to what we reco­gnize today as a mul­ti­ge­ne­ra­tio­nal Austra­lian Labradoodle.

I deci­ded on the Austra­lian Labra­do­odle, for two reasons:

* A num­ber of aller­gies and asthma do not allow me to have other dog, than the one whose hair does not cause aller­gic reac­tions
*I realize that allergy is a com­mon pro­blem in today’s society — a pro­blem which, unfor­tu­na­tely, will con­ti­nue to grow. The­re­fore I want to pay spe­cial atten­tion to people who, because of their disa­bi­lity need a guide dog, but because of their aller­gies can’t have it. To help those people is the pri­mary moti­va­tor for my work.

I would like to pro­vide you with one of the highest possi­ble stan­dards. That’s why I deci­ded on the Austra­lian Labra­do­odle coming from one of the breed foundators.

I have this ple­asure to care for won­der­ful dogs:

1. Rutlands Cara­mel Pas­sion
2. Rutlands Gol­den Gla­mour
3. Wlo­chata Pasja Fil­gree Sur­prise
4. Wlo­chata Pasja Char­ming Molly
5. Rutlands Black Onyxe

ASD Austra­lian Labra­do­odles are not cur­ren­tly regi­ste­red by the FCI in the world. The­re­fore ALFA EU orga­ni­za­tion stays strong to pro­tect the breed. This orga­ni­za­tion, by signing strict code of ethics, puts on the Labra­do­odle bre­eders very high bre­eding stan­dards. More­over the orga­ni­za­tion (as the only one at the moment) requ­ires DNA testing car­ried out on the pup­pies in order to give you the paren­tage prove of your puppy.
