The History Of Labradoodles

DSC 0800 945b0bb1 1920w 1

Labradoodles first came about in response to a very important need: assistance dogs for those with dog allergies. A Labrador Retriever was bred with a Standard Poodle, and the resulting offspring had the trainability and friendliness of a Lab, and the low-shedding, hypo-allergenic, and intelligence of a Poodle. The result? The Labradoodle!

According to BBC, the first Labradoodle was created in 1989 by Australian dog breeder, Wally Conron. At the time, Conron was working as a breeding manager for the Royal Guide Dog Association of Australia. A blind woman from Hawaii had contacted him, requesting a guide dog that wouldn’t aggravate her husband’s allergies.

Conron tried to find a suitable dog, but no breed was completely hypoallergenic. So, he decided to crossbreed a Standard Poodle, which doesn’t shed, with a Labrador Retriever, known for its intelligence and disposition.

Conron’s experiment was successful, and the first Labradoodle pups were born. They had the best traits of both breeds – the intelligence and trainability of the Poodle and the friendly and affectionate nature of the Labrador.

Is a Labradoodle the Right Dog for Me?

In essence, the Labradoodle is an active and social dog, ideal for an active family with or without children. Labradoodles are great with kids, but they are active and could accidentally knock over a small toddler. This breed requires a lot of exercise and thrive off of walks, jogs, playing ball, hiking, swimming, and other active hobbies. If given the right amount of exercise and care, the Labradoodle is just about the perfect family pet.

Let’s look further into whether the Labradoodle is the right match for you:


Are allergies a concern in your family? The Labradoodle is renowned for its allergy friendly coat that tends to produce less dander and shedding. This reduces the risk of triggering allergic reactions in susceptible individuals.

Living Space

Labradoodles are active, and it’s ideal for their living space to match that. It’s best if you have a reasonable yard or are committed to taking your Labradoodle out for walks and exercises daily. 


Labradoodles are known for their friendly, intelligent, loyal, and playful temperament. As affectionate dogs that love to be around people, they really do make great family pets.

Energy and Activity Levels

You can expect them to be generally active dogs that thoroughly enjoy physical and mental stimulation. If you’re an active individual who loves participating in outdoor activities and engaging in regular exercise, a Labradoodle could be the ideal pet for you.


Despite the allergy friendly nature of your Labradoodle’s coat, proper grooming and maintenance remain essential. You will still need to brush your dog twice a week at a minimum, and taking them for a professional grooming session a few times a year is ideal.


Since Labradoodles are a highly intelligent breed, they are quick learners and eager to please. This intelligence and trainability are some of the most desirable traits of Labradoodles, making them excellent candidates for various types of training and activities. The Australian Labradoodle breed is ideal for you if you are able to invest the time and effort in training your pet, so you can both enjoy a rewarding relationship.


When it comes to standard labradoodle puppies, their weight tends to hover between 7 to 12 pounds at the tender age of two months. However, within just a year, they go through remarkable growth, potentially reaching a weight of up to 80 pounds.

Medium labradoodle puppies are smaller and tend to grow at a slower rate. Around the two-month mark, miniature labradoodle puppies tip the scales at a dainty 4 to 7 pounds, and as they grow into the adulthood phase after a year, their weight flourishes into a range of 30 to 45 pounds.


Labradoodles naturally form strong bonds with their owners and thrive in social settings. Early socialization plays a vital role in their healthy growth, particularly during puppyhood. Introducing your dog to a variety of people, animals, and environments at a young age nurtures their confidence and adaptability as they mature. Moreover, proper socialization significantly reduces the likelihood of fear or aggression issues in the future.
