Australian Labradoodle Medium

Non-KC Pedigree, Medium

Doesn't moult much

Not good for first time owners

The Labradoodle (Labrador-Poodle) was first created to be a guide dog for a sight-impaired family with allergies, but the Australian Labradoodle has been further developed with the addition of the many other breeds, including the English and American Cocker Spaniels and the Irish Water Spaniel.


Attractive to ...

Someone who can't decide between a Labradoodle and a Cockapoo!

Not the best for ...

Those allergic to combs. These dogs need regular combing to prevent mats, on top of the six-weekly professional grooms.



Cross between





A bit smaller than a Labrador.

Exercise Needs

Medium (About an hour)
Doesn't have to be a solid hour, you can give them lots of short walks.


Professional help needed. Curly, keeps growing and needs cutting.


Doesn't moult much
But all dogs shed dander so if you're allergic, make sure you'll be ok

Life expectancy

14 years

Good first dog?



Tailwise is consistently rated as Excellent
