Breed Standard & History

Australian Labradoodle vs Labradoodle and is there a difference?

The difference between the two is their parents and the unpredicted coat traits from a Labradoodle.
The Australian Labradoodle has genetics from the Poodle, Labrador Retriever, American and English Cocker Spaniel, Irish Water Spaniel, and Curly Coat Retriever, meaning they inherit the best of all their ancestors when it comes to intelligence, personality, and hypoallergenic coat. Australian Labradoodles almost always have a fluffy, non-shedding, and pet-friendly coat because they bred over several generations of dogs. The coat and color tends to be more consistent than Labradoodles.

Breed Standard

The Australian Labradoodle moves with agility and grace when active yet is compact with substance and medium boning. Brimming with joy and energy when free, they become relaxed and quiet when handled. Australian Labradoodles have a free flowing wavy or curly coat that is low to non-shedding.


The Australian Labradoodle is naturally social and bonds well with their human companions. Overflowing with joy and fun, they bring endless amusement and happiness to those around them. The Labradoodle is intuitive and intelligent, showing exceptional love and loyalty to those with special needs. Easily trained, the Labradoodle is an ideal companion for families of all kinds.

Height: 17 to 20 inches (not over 21) . Weight range tends to be 30-40lbs

There should be no appreciable difference in the general appearance of the Standard, Medium, or Miniature sizes except in the actual size difference.

Texture - there are three types of texture

  • The hair coat sheds a light to moderate amount. This coat is seen in early generations.
  • The wool coat is dense and similar in feel to a lamb’s wool. Wool coats hang in tight or loose spiraling curls and will open up to show the skin. It is low to no shed.
  • The fleece coat has a silky texture often described as an Angora goat texture. This coat ranges from straight to wavy or falling in soft curls. It is low to no shed.
