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
