Here at St. Louis Australian Labradoodles you can find the perfect, pre-spoiled, adorable puppy! My name is Becky Coulter and I have been involved with the Australian Labradoodle more than five years. My husband raised a variety of dogs for over 20 years. When we got married 10 years ago we wanted to find a dog that was right for us. After two years of research on my part to find the perfect dog for the two of us, I believe that is exactly what we found, "the perfect dog."
After loving my puppy so much I wanted to share them with other people looking for that perfect dog. With empty nest we decided to start breeding these sweet loving dogs.
But, you must know, not all Labradoodles are created equal. Our breeding dogs are carefully selected by health, personality and coat. We have strict policies to control the quality of our dogs. And they are low to non-shedding. These dogs are NOT the American Labradoodle, they are the original Australian Labradoodle.
Over 40 years ago, a trainer for the Royal Guide Dogs Association crossed a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle in an attempt to create an allergy friendly guide dog for an allergic client. These are exactly what the American Labradoodles are - a Labrador and a Poodle cross. But, the dream of creating a highly intelligent and trainable human companion with an allergy friendly, non shedding coat was what the trainer was trying to accomplish. So over the years other breeds have been infused into some of the lines of the multi-generation Australian Labradoodles. These breeds were carefully chosen to enhance specific characteristics in the Australian Labradoodle. The infused breeds include: Labrador, Poodle, Irish Water Spaniel, Curley Coat Retriever, American Cocker Spaniel and English Cocker Spaniel.
