History of the Australian Cobberdog
The Australian Cobberdog was recognized in January 2012 as a pure breed in development sprung partly from the root stock of the authentic Australian Labradoodle. It was further developed by carefully selected infusions for very specific reasons and at particular stages of development. Like most pure breeds it is different from the breed/s from which it originated.

History of the Australian Labradoodle
The Australian Labradoodle was originally a cross breed of Labrador Retriever and Poodle to achieve a therapy dog for people allergic to dogs. Australian Labradoodles have been bred with Australian Labradoodles with controlled infusions from other breeds to achieve the desired traits of temperament, low to no shed, and allergy friendliness with consistency. Any Authentic Australian Labradoodle is multi-gen with pedigrees tracing back to the originators of the breed, Rutland Manor and Tegan Park in Australia.
The American Labradoodle followed the Australian Labradoodle and likewise was originally a cross breed of Poodle and Labrador Retriever and remains so today. It was created in the USA and Great Britain as a means to jump on Australia’s bandwagon. While some are low to no shed and allergy friendly the mixed breed yields inconsistent pups especially in the area of temperament. Many are hyperactive which is not a desirable trait for a Labradoodle.
