The first litter of Australian Labradoodle puppies was bred in Australia in 1989 by a man named Wally Conron, who was the breeding manager for the Guide Dog Services in Australia. A vision impaired woman with a husband who was allergic to dogs had contacted Wally, to see if he could fulfill her request for a service dog. After numerous breedings between Poodles and Labrador Retrievers, Wally produced a puppy with an allergy friendly coat. This litter was the official beginning of the Labradoodle breed.
The general public became interested in these smart and easy to train dogs and their non-shedding, allergy friendly coats have played a huge part in their current success and popularity. The Australian Labradoodle breed was further developed with the infusion of other breeds into the line such as the American and English Cocker Spaniel to add other desirable traits. While originally developed in Australia, responsible American breeders are dedicated to the continued development of this wonderful and unique breed.
