Allergies to Australian Labradoodles?
The Australian Labradoodle was specifically bred for allergy sufferers. If you or a member of your family has an allergy to dogs then the best way to find out if you are allergic to the Australian Labradoodle is to spend time with one.
For allergy sufferers, your best bet is to get an Australian Labradoodle with either a fleece or wool coat.
F1 = First cross between a lab and a poodle
This is not a safe choice for allergy sufferers or those who don’t want shedding because the ability to identify which puppy will or won’t increase allergy symptoms and/or shed as an adult is all but impossible.
F1B = F1 bred back to a Poodle
This is not the best choice for those concerned with allergies and/or shedding because there is only about an 8/10 chance that this dog won’t shed/be allergy friendly, depending on the previous generations.
If both the Australian Labradoodle parents are allergy friendly and non-shedding then the pup should be allergy friendly and non-shedding. This is the best bet for those families who are looking for a non-shedding and allergy friendly dog.
Not all Labradoodles are non-shedding. Early generation American Labradoodles often shed.
The wool coats of the Australian Labradoodles are considered non-shedding.
An Australian Labradoodle with a true fleece coat should not shed.
If you are seriously concerned about shedding, then an Australian Labradoodle with a wool coat may be your best bet.
