Frequently Asked Questions
We are frequently asked some of the below questions.  Check here for answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about the breed of Australian labradoodles. 
1.  What is the difference between labradoodle vs. Australian labradoodle?  Is there a difference?  

There most certainly is a huge difference!  A F1 stands for first generation labradoodle.  These are bred from lab to poodle and are generally large, as most are bred standard to standard.  They are less consistent in their look, temperament and shedding.  

A F2 is a second generation labradoodle, bred from a F1 to a F1.  These are also inconsistent in look, temperament and shedding and are generally larger too.  

Anything with a B stands for back.  This is when the dog is bred back to either a poodle or a lab to improve the consistency. 

An Australian labradoodle is a  multigenerational labradoodle who is bred labradoodle to labradoodle, and can be traced back to the original labradoodles, who were developed by the original kennels of Tegan Park and Rutland Manor.  These will be the most consistent in terms of look, temperament and non shedding. These can come in multiple sizes, from mini to standard.

2. Can any labradoodle be completely non shedding?  

The general answer to this is no, as all dogs will have some level of shedding, but the higher the generation, the less the shedding.  Multi generational labradoodles are  recommended for people with allergies or a desire for a non shedding dog, as they are considered non shedding dogs.  The only time we see hair in our home is when we do a deep rug clean - and we have multiple doodles who live with us. :)

3. What are the different kinds of coats?

Australian labradoodles have wool, 'new wool', fleece or hair coats which continue to 
grow in length and require combing and occasional grooming.  Wool coats are curly and poodly in texture.  The 'new wool' has a more relaxed and softer curl.  A fleece coat has a relaxed curl and is softer than wool coats.  Hair coats are rare and are flat, shedding and not allergy friendly.

4.  Why are Australian labradoodles more money than first or second generation?

The breeding stock for Australian labradoodles is much more than the cost to purchase a lab and a poodle.  The pedigree for the Australians is important and coveted.  Also, the cost for any labradoodle is consistent with the level of testing and commitment of the breeder to developing their doodles, including testing and developing the breed.   Remember that a bargain isn't a bargain if you end up with a dog that sheds, is much larger than expected, inconsistent in temperament or looks and doesn't come from tested parents.
