Central Florida Doodles


Florida's Sweetest Family 



The Labradoodle we know and love today once started out as merely a dream, an idea. The objective of this dream was to create a breed of dog that was hypo-allergenic, non-shedding, and suitable for service/therapy training.

It was in the 1980's that the Guide Dog Association of Australia began crossing the Labrador Retriever and the Standard Poodle. Through years of selective breeding, the goal of perfect Australian Labradoodles was achieved.

These dogs make incredible companions. They have the best characteristics of both the Labrador Retriever (loyal, playful) and the Poodle (intelligent, hypo-allergenic, non-shedding).

Here at Central Florida Labradoodles, we strive for maintenance and continued improvement of these qualities in our own dogs, which is why we breed multi-generational doodles.



First-cross generations of Labradoodles (F-1s), are puppies born from a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. There is a great lack of predictability in these early generations. Coat types vary, being long or short, wiry or curly, and other possible combinations. The majority of these puppies will likely shed and have coats that are not hypo-allergenic.

Second-generation Labradoodles are F-1's backcrossed with the Poodle in an attempt to correct the coat, amongst other qualities. Again, these puppies have a limited amount of predictability and will likely not be suitable for those looking for the non-shed, hypo-allergenic coat.

Multi-generational Labradoodles are those that date back to the 1980's, when the Guide Dog Association of Australia underwent years of meticulous breeding to develop the specific coat characteristics that make the Labradoodle so special. Multi-generational Labradoodles consistently produce hypo-allergenic, non-shedding puppies.
