Labradoodles Originated in Australia

About the Labradoodle
A cross between the Labrador Retriever and Standard Poodle, the Labradoodle was started when Wally Cochran was approached by a blind woman who suffered severe allergies to dogs in the 1970's. His vision was to create a dog who could aid the physically impaired, and have the low-maintenance and temperament of the Labrador Retriever, and the allergen-reduced coat of the Standard Poodle.

The first crossbreeding was successful and produced three allergen-reduced puppies.

Labrador Rertriever breeders around Australia took hold of the idea with great gusto, and attempted to recreate the effect that Cochran had acheived.

In the 1980's, two Breeding and Research Centers were set up to control breeding and create a standard for the Labradoodles as well as offer them to the public for companions, Rutland Manor Labradoodles Breeding and Research Center Australia, and Tegan Park Labradoodle Breeding and Research Center Australia. These facilities keep careful records of parentage and are maintaining strict standards of health, a necessity in any breeding program.
