Canadoodle Australian Labradoodles where the first Multigeneration Australian Labradoodles were born in North America.
Canadoodle Australian Labradoodles are an In-Home program, our labradoodles are a part of our family. We have a handful of doodles who live with us and the rest are happily living with their forever Guardian Families. Puppies are all hand whelped and raised in our home and spend their early days in the dining room (the hub of the house) until they are three weeks old. Puppies then move to our family room/dog room where they have doggy doors to our exciting and stimulating puppy play yards.Learn More
History of the Australian Labradoodle
The Labradoodle is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. In the late 1980's the Guide Dog Association of Australia set out to produce a non-shedding dog suitable for service training. Mr. Wally Conren was the driving force behind this program, and the goal was to produce a non-shedding guide dog by using a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle.
The result of this cross produced intelligent, easily trainable puppies that were the beginning of the Labradoodle as we now know it. Crossing these two breeds also gave the Labradoodle a hybrid vigor and a variety of coat types.
Over the years both American Cocker Spaniel and English Cocker Spaniel as well as Irish Water Spaniel have been added to the equation, this has resulted in the Australian Labradoodle that we know and love today.
