According to the Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association, the breed was first developed in Australia in the 1970’s when the Royal Guide Dog Association of Australia was working to create an allergy friendly guide dog and has since become a popular pet due to the allergy friendly nature and no shed coat coupled with an easy going, friendly disposition. Word spread on the assets of this new breed, and breeders in Australia started to work with the idea of improving and refining the breed. Dog breeders in the United States and throughout the world quickly recognized the quality and service dog potential of the multi-generational Australian Labradoodle and started breeding these amazing dogs.
Organizations have been formed to protect the continued development of the Australian Labradoodle lines, including the Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association (WALA). JoaLins Australian Labradoodles is a proud member of and always strives to uphold the standards and Code of Ethics set by WALA.
