Authentic Australian Labradoodles

about the breeds
This line of Labradoodles was “designed” in Australia for a woman whose husband required a service dog. She wanted a dog that he would not be allergic to, that did not shed and, given the nature of the dog’s service and associated cost, longevity and good health were also a priority.

The initial cross between a Labrador Retriever (known for their loveable, highly intelligent and trainable personality type, keen senses and sturdy build) with a Poodle (also, highly intelligent, very intuitive and devoted and known or their hypo-allergenic and non-shedding characteristics) produced random results. Some offspring shed, some did not; some were intelligent, others were less than, etc. – this random results was unacceptable.

Consequently, four other breeds of dogs (Irish Water Spaniel, Curly Coat Retriever, American Cocker Spaniel & English Cocker Spaniel) were introduced into the mix until the desired breed, integrity and predictability resulted in the modern day Australian Labradoodle whose temperament, coat and confirmation make them pretty much a perfect fur baby companion and helper.
While there are many breeders of Labradoodles these days, if the above listed characteristics, integrity and predictability are important to you, please consider our Authentic Labradoodles from the Australian breeders, Tegan Park and Rutland Manor.

Labrador Retrievers


Historically, Labrador Retrievers rate number 1 as a most favored and preferred family, as well as service, dog. Agile and athletic, smart and loving, gentle and devoted, they are ideal for an active family willing to provide their fur baby with ample exercise and activity to expend their abundance of energy.

Labrador Retrievers, not at all from Labrador as one might assume from the name, were actually designed in 1903 as a cross between a St. John Water Dog and a Newfoundland. Like the Authentic Australian Labradoodles, Labrador Retrievers were bred to serve an essential purpose in their human’s daily life – assisting their human’s to procure food. Labrador Retrievers, originally bred in Newfoundland were designed to hunt, fish and retrieve to provide their humans with food.
