About Labradoodles

In the late 1980s The Royal Guide Dog Association of Australia received a request from a blind lady in Hawaii who needed a guide dog that would not aggravate her husband’s allergies. The request was given to a man called Wally Conron who tried in vain to train 33 different poodles as guide dogs but, despite being working dogs, none of them made the grade. In desperation he crossed his best Labrador bitch with a Standard Poodle. Of the three puppies, one of them did not trigger an allergic reaction in the blind lady’s husband and so the Labradoodle was born.

Today Labradoodles are both excellent therapy and assistance dogs and enormously popular family pets. They love to work and are eager to please. They are true companion dogs and thrive best with their people, delighting in being stroked and petted. Many of them are pretty smart and enjoy outwitting their owners - just for fun!

sensitive noses and tireless stamina make them expert detection dogs in the battle to prevent smuggling of contraband food, weapons & explosives. Some members of the infamous U.S. Beagle Brigade can detect almost 50 different scents.

The 'Dog Tag' prints celebrate the history and characteristics that define particular breeds. The "dog tag" design idea came from thoughts about the plight of dogs in rescue centres and shelters. Debbie from The Enlightened Hound imagined that they might be wearing a dog tag that helped prospective owners find out more about the dog in the hope that they might be rescued and given a ‘forever home’.
