2) Wool - lambs wool, spiraling curls. This is more like a poodle and requires grooming.
The Breed was first created in the 1980's by a man named Wally Conron in Australia. His goal was to provide a guide dog to a visually impaired lady in Hawaii whose husband suffered from dog allergies. Initially a Standard Poodle was to be used but was rejected due to various problems. The guide dog association of Australia had always used Labrador Retrievers so to make a long story short - the Labradoodle was created. In 1989 the Labradoodle became public as the new designer dogs and opened up a new world for countless people who once thought they could never enjoy the delight of a pet pooch! Today two facilities in Australia, Tegan Park and Rutland Manor export Labradoodles all over the world.
