About the Breed
There is a lot of talk about
"designer dog breeds".
Mixing anything with anything and giving it's
offspring a funny name can be a formula for charging lots of $$.
Labradoodles are a true breed of their own.
If you buy from an Australian
you will get the traits so desired in this breed.
because of their immense popularity, some people will cross any Labrador with
without any regard to genetics, temperament, or other traits and
call the offspring "Labradoodles".
The result of this type of breeding is
unpredictable with the pups having all sorts of coats and all sorts of looks.
Often the resulting pups have inherited the genes for a weird coat or a strange
This is NOT a true bred Labradoodle with it's truly desirable
It takes MANY generations before any breed of horse, dog,
cat, bird, etc. will breed true
and thereby allow itself to be called by it's
Without getting too techy......the definition of "Breeding True" from
Northwestern University is :
"A phenotype for a simply-inherited trait
that is said to breed true if two parents with that phenotype
offspring of that same phenotype exclusively."
What do all the F's and numbers mean ?
(These are NOT terms that would be used by a TRUE MULTIGEN Labradoodle
F1 is a first generation
Labradoodle. It is a Labrador Retriever bred to a Poodle.
This is the
most unreliable way to know what offspring will be like
as each pups can and
will pick up various qualities from either or both parents.
F1B is a second generation
Labradoodle. This is a first generation cross (as above) bred back again
to a Poodle.
This is sometimes done to increase the Hypo-Allergenic qualities
that the Poodle's hair coat brings
and is also occasionally done to change
the coat of the of the future offspring.
F2 is a second generation
Labradoodle. It is either a first generation bred back to a first
or a first generation breed back to a higher generation.
And...best of all
is a MANY MANY GENERATIONS Labradoodle which now is
"breeding true" consistently
with the qualities
so desired in this breed.
Please note that our dogs are ALL Multi-Gen.
If you have someone in your home that suffers from
dog allergies then this may very well be the solution.
If you have
someone that has allergies, ask us to tell you the stories we know from past
pups in allergic homes.
Or if you don't want to sweep up
dog hair off the floor and your furniture then this may be the dog for you.
Maybe I'm getting old...or I'm getting smarter.
I've never really been fond of a dog that doesn't learn quickly and isn't
Be warned...Labradoodles are VERY smart and will learn
from watching you.
Although our dogs are happily ranch raised and get plenty
of exercise and fresh air while "helping me" with chores
they also sleep in
the house and lay around much of the day watching the world go by.
these are not dogs that should be kept in a crate or in an apartment all day.
They are quiet and calm until it is time to play.......and then they will have a
ball tearing it up !
They NEED exercise daily both physically and mentally.
The words " Small, Medium, Large" do NOT apply to a
TRUE MULTIGEN AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE.
We will quote you an expected size at maturity.
Those other words are often used by "cross breeders", not
A TRUE AUSTRALIAN M ULITGEN LABRADOODLE
does not have a varying type of coat.
Those words of fleece, wavy, curly, etc are used by cross
Our MULTIGEN dogs ALL
have exactly the same coat type as it is bred into them
over the MANY MANY generations.
