Frequently Asked Questions

We breed and specialize in Hypoallergenic Australian Labradoodle Puppies in Spruce Grove, Alberta. Below are some of the most common questions we get asked. 

1. What is an Australian Labradoodle?

An Australian Labradoodle is a multi-generational Labradoodle that originated from Australia. They were bred specifically for therapy work and companionship, known for their friendly nature and intelligence.

The Australian Labradoodle is a remarkable breed, derived from a mix of Labrador Retrievers, Poodles, and Cocker Spaniels. One of the standout features of this breed is its hypoallergenic and low-shedding coat, making it an ideal choice for those with allergies. These coats come in various types, including fleece, wool, and hair, each with a distinct texture and curl pattern. Additionally, the breed offers a diverse color palette, ranging from chocolate to cream, and even multi-color mixes.

But the Australian Labradoodle is not just visually appealing; it’s a breed known for its intelligence, social nature, and trainability. Many Australian Labradoodles are trained as therapy or service dogs due to their strong ability to understand and empathize with humans. They are highly social animals that enjoy the company of people and other pets, making them excellent additions to families. Their moderate energy levels mean they are active enough to enjoy playtime and exercise but are also content with quieter moments. If you’re looking for a dog that is not only beautiful but also intelligent, social, and versatile, the Australian Labradoodle may be the perfect choice for you.
