Texas Labradoodles purchased our first three Labradoodles in 2006 from Butch Charlton in North Carolina. Butch agreed to be our breeder mentor through the ALAA. He has proven to be a great friend and a wonderful mentor. Thanks to Butch, we were able to start with the very best bloodlines . The decision to raise these amazing dogs has proven to be one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives.
Dogs make people better and these dogs are sincerely the most exceptional of souls. There was a lot to learn about breeding Australian Labradoodles back then. Over the years, the breed has become more difficult for the buyer to understand. There are many variations of “doodles” as the breeding of Labradoodles has become more popular. Understand that all Labradoodles are not the same. Many are not low-shedding (quite the opposite) and many are not hypo-allergenic.

Differences in Breeding
Labradoodles come in different variations according to how they’ve been bred. These variations of breeding affect coat, temperament and trainability. This means some breeders take a Poodle and breed it to a Lab, thereby creating a first generation line. These dogs are referred to as F1 or F1B (a lab/poodle mix bred back to a Poodle). An F1 is a 50% Lab and 50% Poodle, while an F1B is generally more Poodle, 75% Poodle, and 25% Lab, helping with the shedding and allergy issues.
Texas Labradoodles only breeds multi-generational Australian Labradoodles. Our dogs have several generations of Australian-bred Labradoodles in their bloodlines.
As much as we love all dogs, especially labs and poodles, we feel it is important to stay true to the original breeding of these dogs because that it is what everyone wants in a Labradoodle and what they think they are getting when buying a Labradoodle.
Rutland Manor and Tegan Park in Australia went to great lengths to create this incredible breed and we respect that expertise.
This is why it is so important to us to always breed only the Australian bloodlines and stay true to what we know, good, solid multi-generational Australian Labradoodles that have the best coats, the best temperaments, and are the most trainable.
