The development of the ideal therapy dog
It all started in Australia, where Wally Conron, breeding manager of GDAV Guide Dog Services, searched a way to breed good, anti-allergic assistance dogs. The first Labrador Retriever x Poodle hybrids were a fact... Tegan Park and Rutland Manor played a big role in the development of the Australian Labradoodle as a distinctive breed, with infusions of the English Cocker Spaniel, the American Cocker Spaniel, the Irish Water Spaniel, the Curly Coat Retriever and more recently the Soft Coated Irish Wheaten Terrier. Now that the breed is consistent in appearance and behavioural characteristics, the Australian Labradoodle is ready to get recognized as a valued pure breed. The first step in this procedure: changing the name from Authentic Australian Labradoodle (which suggests a crossbreed) to Australian Cobberdog. Cobber is australian slang for a friend or companion; a perfect résumé of the breed.
"What's the difference between a Cobberdog and a Labradoodle?", is a question I get a lot, and it's a good question.
Here I'll make a short comparison of the Cobberdog versus the Labradoodle, so you have a basic idea. Do I still leave you with questions or does this comparison raises other questions about the Cobberdog? Let me know!
