What is the difference between a Labradoodle and an Australian Labradoodle?

While Labradoodles are a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle, most people do not realize the original founders of the Australian Labradoodle from Tegan Park Research Center and Rutland Manner carefully infused six purebred breeds including the Labrador Retriever, the Poodle, the English Cocker Spaniel, the American Cocker Spaniel, Curly Coat Retriever, and the Irish Water Spaniel into the complex lineage to create the Australian Labradoodle. Now to be classified as an Australian Labradoodle the dog’s pedigree must include a combination of the Labrador Retriever, the Poodle, and the Cocker Spaniel breeds. The resulting Australian Labradoodles have been bred to each other and are considered Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles. Even when other types of Labradoodles are bred for generations, the result is still not an Australian Labradoodle, as the attributes of the infused breeds were not included in their ancestry. Australian Labradoodles are well known to have a consistent conformation, coat type, and personality since they are a multigenerational dog. Unlike the Australian Labradoodle, the Labradoodle can be F1, F2, F3, and multigenerational but it will only possess the Labrador Retriever and Poodle genes.
