The Australian Labradoodle breed dates back to the 1980's in Victoria, Australia. Tegan Park and Rutland Manor were the foundation lineages we know today, as the Australian Labradoodle. The intent was to create a breed that was allergy and asthma friendly, had a low shed coat, along with an outstanding temperament, ideal for a guide dog. Breeders in Australia began breeding Labradoodles determined to produce litters with consistent conformation, coat type, and temperament. During the 1990's, a number of other dog breeds were bred into the Labradoodle lines to assist in these efforts. Most often the English Cocker Spaniel and the American Cocker Spaniel were the breeds used — Australian Labradoodle Association of American. We are proud to say all of Sweet Home Labradoodle puppies are part of the Australian Labradoodle foundation bloodlines.
The Australian Labradoodle is a cross between a Poodle, Cocker Spaniel, and the Labrador Retriever. This allows the structure of the body to be a more square / stocky build and a silkier, soft coat texture. The American Labradoodle is a cross between the Labrador Retriever and the standard, moyen, or miniature Poodle. This cross may lend itself to a more slender, and agile frame of body, due to, the Poodle gene having more influence. Multi-generational puppies of both types of Labradoodles are more likely to produce a consistent lush coat, which is known for its low- to no shed, allergy friendliness, and with their amazing and desirable Labradoodle temperament. The Labradoodle is a cute, intelligent, and easily trainable dog, making it ideal for service, therapy, and assistance dogs.
Sweet Home Labradoodles welcomes all questions. It is important you and your family members feel ready to take on the commitment of a new puppy. Puppies require an investment of time and the reward is a priceless forever companion! I recommend having a puppy training plan in place before your puppy comes home, whether it be in your home or with a professional trainer.
Sweet Home Labradoodle puppies are trainable at 8 weeks of age. This is a critical time in their lives to incorporate puppy manners and early social relationships in a safe environment. It is important for our puppies to begin puppy training at an early age. Our puppies have successfully learned sit, stay, down, walk on a leash, and potty train. Labradoodle puppies are intelligent and need their minds stimulated and bodies exercised daily. The benefits of early training and consistency will last a lifetime!
