Labradoodles originated in Australia in the 1970’s when the Australian Guide Dogs Foundation in Victoria, Australia, received a request for a low allergy guide dog. The breed arose on the farm of Don Evans, who ran a mixed dog farm in Northern Victoria, Australia.

A Standard Poodle and a Labrador Retriever were bred together in response to an inquiry by a blind lady in Hawaii who needed a low allergy guide dog.

Labradoodle fever escalated when the Guide Dogs Victoria opened their doors and the general public spied the charismatic, wide-eyed, wavy-haired pooches. Many were also intrigued with the Labradoodle—especially in light of rising allergy and asthma problems—and with the prospect idea of developing a new hybrid, free from the health issues facing the pure breeds.

Labradoodles are sociable, friendly, non aggressive and high trainability make them well suited for guide dogs therapy dogs and other assistance dogs. The Labradoodle is known for its outstanding intelligence and trainability, low allergy coat, low to non-shedding coat and lack of doggie odor. They’re slightly heavier than the Standard Poodle with strong front limbs. They’re an overall balance dog with a slightly longer than square build.

There are three sizes with the males larger than females.

Mediums range from 18″ – 21″ tall and weigh between 30 lbs and 45 lbs
