THE BREED: ORIGINAL AUSTRALIANS
Of the Original Australian is looked after by a few associations worldwide that are in contact with each other. The breed is not affiliated with the FCI / AKC. Is not a hybrid or a designer dog.
The Cocker Spaniel and the Irish Water Spaniel were used to Broadening of the breeding base and structural improvement in the 2 starting breeds Poodle and Labrador crossed. The aim of the breeding project was to breed a "hypoallergenic" family and therapy dog that would combine the advantages of these breeds. The selection was primarily based on nature and health. To expand the gene pool, the focus of new crossbreeding is nowadays on the poodle or cocker, depending on the lines.
The requirement to sell breeding dogs only to accredited breeders of the international associations is intended to ensure that breeding takes place with care, according to the prescribed breeding requirements and according to the standard. This is to avoid that an interested party does not unknowingly get into a non-certified breeder or dog dealer who sells his puppies under the name Australian Labradoodle. There is now a large breeding base, the ALD database includes around 20,000 dogs worldwide. From a breeding point of view, ALD does not have the problem of the small population size with the risk of inbreeding and its consequences of inbreeding depression, increased occurrence of hereditary diseases, etc. because the stud books are not closed and crossbreeding is permitted under justification and strict conditions
If you search for original Australian Labradoodles on the Internet, you will encounter a wide variety of crossbreeds. The naming is confusing and the various intersections are obscure for those interested.
ORIGINAL AUSTRALIANS (AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE)
"Australian" delimits the breed from the simple crosses between Labrador x Poodle (Hybrid / Designerdog) and also of the not very long-bred crosses away.
Of the Original Australian is bred according to a standard and combines up to 6 different breeds in its gene pool, depending on the line:
Irish Water Spaniel
American Cocker Spaniel
English Cocker spaniel
(In the Cobberdog - formerly Australian Labradoodle in some lines also from 2007 crossed soft coated wheathen terriers, which the international associations do not recognize)
Through a long-term, selective and careful breeding program, the desired improvement in coat structure, allergy-friendliness and the consolidation of character traits were achieved. From generation to generation, the typical Australian behavior, hereditary health and external appearance have improved and consolidated.

16 Generationen ALD
In the 1970s, the "Royal Victorian Guide Dogs Association" (an Australian help dog organization) to breed a hypoallergenic guide dog. Wally Conron, who took on the project, wanted to use the labrador's eagerness to learn and the poodle's intelligence to do so. Because of the name he called the crossbreed Labradoodle.
These first generation hybrids were eager to learn, but not easy to train. They were not shown to be stable in terms of suitability as therapy dogs and allergy-friendliness.
Two Australian breeders (Rutland Manor and Tegan Park) decided to continue breeding with some offspring from Wally Conrons crosses. Their aim was to use a non-shedding, allergy-friendly therapy dog.
After several years of selective breeding and crossbreeding of other breeds, the emerged original Australian (Labradoodle). The perfect family dog developed that, when properly trained, also acts as a therapy dog.
Through the targeted further breeding with these offspring, the most important characteristics were firmly anchored:
allergy-friendly quality of the fur
To differentiate it from the Labradoodles they called it Australian Labradoodle.
