As a professional dog trainer, I have worked with a wide variety of Labradoodles. Not all doodles are created equally and it's important to know the differences in types of Labradoodles:
F1 -1st generation cross between the Labrador and the Standard Poodle. A 50/50 split. F1 are most likley to shed because half of it's genes come from a Lab.
F1b- is a backcross 1st generation Labradoodle. This cross is 75% Poodle and 25% Labrador. Since the F1 dogs do shed and can have a wiry type coat, the poodle is bred back to the F1 Labradoodle to correct the coat type.
F2- is a 2nd generation Labradoodle. F1 x F1 just bred one more generation. These puppies also shed just like the F1. The F2 generation is the most varied generation and pups will have a variety of looks and coat types.
Multigenerational Labradoodles or Multi-gen - When a Labradoodle is 3 or more generations into the breed they are considered Multigeneration Labradoodles. Almost all are non-shedding and are great for families with allergies.
Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles- these dogs were originally bred by Wally Conron, the breeding manager for GDAV Guide Dog Services in Australia to produce an allergy free service dog. As the breed continued to develop other breeders in Australia such as Tegan Park and Rutland Manor began to infuse breeds into the Australian Labradoodle to improve upon consistency in health, temperament, structure and coat type. These infusions proved successful and also created uniformity to create a breed standard. This distinctive look is unique to the multi-gen Australian Labradoodle.
Luxe Labradoodle breeds mulitgen Australian Labradoodles because we believe in this distinctive line of labradoodles! Multi-gen Australian Labradoodles have been selectively bred to produce highly trainable, healthy dogs with allergy friendly coats and consistency in temperaments and conformation.
- a fleece coat is soft, silky and has a wavy coat texture ranging from:
open fleece~ the hair is almost straight
wavy fleece~ hair has just a few waves
curly fleece-hair resembles a spiraled perm
~an added benefit is little to no shedding and no doggie odor
~a wool coat is a dense curly coat texture that resembles lambs wool:
~ideally it should hang loose in hollow spirals
~ it's extremely rare for the wool coat to shed
~ best coat type for those with severe allergies.
~ an added benefit is non shedding and little or no doggie smell
Miniature - 14"-16" tall, weigh 15-30 lbs
Mediums - 17"-20" tall, weigh 30-45 lbs
Standards - 21"-24" tall, weigh 45-65 lbs
Luxe only breeds miniature and medium labradoodles.
As a breeder and trainer of Multigenerational Australian Labradooldes, my goal is to produce beautiful pups who grow up to be sound dogs with superior temperaments, trainability and non-shedding coats. Our breeding dogs are fully health tested and each pup is extensively socialized before they leave our family. They are home grown with love and leave here well adjusted and ready to adapt to their new homes.
Finally, we at Luxe Labradoodle know that not all dogs have the same opportunities in life and it’s important for us to give back. Luxe Labradoodles donates a portion from each puppy sold to one of our local no-kill shelters. Every canine deserves a loving family and a forever home!
We look forward to speaking to you about the possibility of owning your own: Luxe Labradoodle!
