Labmaraner History

The Labradoodle is a cross-breed between a Labrador Retriever and a Standard or Miniature Poodle. It is a member of the same family of non-sporting dogs as the Golden Retriever, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever, the Flat-Coated Retriever, and the Curly-Coated Retriever. The first recorded breeding of a “Labrador” with a “Poodle” occurred in 1989. The mating was between a yellow Labrador named “Reba” and a black and white Standard Poodle named “Cavalier”. The CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) recognized the Labradoodle as a new purebred in 2003. The ACA (American Canine Association) does not recognize the Labradoodle as a purebreed, but it does recognize the various hybrid varieties such as: • The F1 (first-generation), or “Toy”, labradoodle, which is a cross between a purebred Poodle and a purebred Labrador Retriever. • The F3 (third-generation), or “Fluff”, labradoodle, which is a cross between an F1 and a second generation (F2) Labradoodle. For the Designer Dogs Association of America, the third generation (F3) or “Fluff”, labradoodle is the only variety that can be registered as a “designer” or “hybrid” dog.
