Q & A
Standard Labradoodles tend to be more inconsistent than Australian Labradoodles. Because they are of the first or second generation, their physical attributes and appearance are more predictable and consistent. Each Australian Labradoodle will have similar physical features and appearance.
A standard Labradoodle puppy, on the other hand, is not consistent. Poodles crossbred with Labradors generally have different coat types, sizes, and temperaments. The variation increases and becomes more complicated as you move to the second or third generation.
For an ALD to qualify as a "purebred" Multigen, they have to be bred to another ALD in 4 consecutive matings (taken from ALAA/ALCA clubs). The Multigen Australian Labradoodle was carefully and specifically developed to keep and maintain the fundamental characteristics and specific genes of MALD (multigen Australian Labradoodle), as dictated and regulated by ALCA, ALAA, and WALA associations.
Labradoodles were initially favored because of their low-shedding coats, but their wonderful disposition and kind nature won over more and more people. Since these dogs became so versatile, their intelligence and tenacity began to attract trainers and people looking for sports and assistance dogs. Today, you will find the Australian Labradoodle worldwide as an allergy-friendly soul mate and family companion. In addition, you will see them used as seizure alert dogs and of assistance for the physically and mentally challenged individual. They will serve as guide dogs and show dogs in the future.
ALD as we know it today was founded by Tegan Park research center and Rutland Manor. It began in 1980 by carefully infusing several other breeds into the early generations of Lab/poodle crosses to improve temperament, coat, conformation, and size.
Breeds infused include Iris water spaniels, American and English cocker spaniels, and some lines of wheaten terriers. Carefully developed over generations, focused on temperament coat quality and soundness through diligent health testing and planned mating.
- ALD is multigen, meaning both dog parents are ALD and have been breed x 5 generations.
- No other doodle breed has been developed over generations like ALD.
- ALD has a consistent appearance and temperament throughout the breed.
- Australian Labradoodles are people-focused dogs with exceptional eye contact and a desire to please.
(Info from ALCA)
Yes. When you get an ALD from HighStar Labradoodle, we carefully breed low to no shedding coats, making them allergy-friendly dogs. When you get a dog from a responsible ALCA/WALA/ALAA breeder, you can be sure the dog is allergy-friendly. Keeping in mind that everyone reacts to allergies differently, some people can be allergic not to the hair/coat, instead, be allergic to the dog saliva or dandle. The Multigen ALD is not like other doodles.
- Small/miniature -14-16 inch / up to 30lbs
- Medium- 17-20 inch/ 31-40lbs
- Standard- 21-24 inch/ over 41 pounds.
The ALD can have a fleece or wool coat. The fleece coat can be wavy or curly, while the wool coat is curly as with poodles (sheep).

Due to our Australian Labradoodles' high demand and exceptional temperament, the reservation list tends to fill up one year in advance. To avoid this, we created a waiting list. After completing our application form, you will be placed on a general waiting list. The reason for the questionnaire is that we want to know your family's dynamics and make sure that our beloved puppy will go into good hands. We love all our dogs and puppies, and they are part of our family. We take very seriously where our dogs will grow and develop as the extraordinary dogs they are. Being on the waiting list doesn't warranty a dog for a specific litter. Instead, it will warranty updates on pregnancy, and once puppies are born, you will be the first to know and be the first to place the deposit. The waiting time on the waiting list will depend on your specific color/size/gender inquiries, which is fine but might make the waiting longer.
When puppies are born, we will start calling families in the order of the list. For example, if we have a litter of 8 puppies, we will contact the 1st eight families. With this method, you will have a better idea of the physical characteristics of the litter. For example, all puppies are chocolate, and you want a caramel doodle. If you are still interested and won't mind waiting for the next litter, your name will stay on the waiting list. Remember, this will make the wait longer. Suppose you want to pass this current litter. In that case, we will then start calling, given the example above, the family in the 9th position, allowing them to be part of the currently available puppies.
To get a puppy from the current litter, you must be on the waiting list first. Then you have up to 48-72 hours to make a non-refundable reservation fee of $400. Now you are on the Reservation list, which is in order of payment received. We will ask you to choose 1 to 3 colors of the puppy in order of preference. Number one is to be your first choice. After that, we will try our best to match you with the puppy you selected, as long as it fits with temperament testing @ 7weeks.
Suppose you are number one on the waiting list. In that case, you need to be the first family to reserve the puppy with a non-refundable $400. For example, you will be first on the reservation list if you are number 5 on the waiting list and make the deposit first. On the other hand, if you are number one on the waiting list but are the last to make the deposit, you will be the latest on the reservation list.
No, it works based on preference. For example, your color preference is a chocolate boy. Around seven weeks, we will attempt temperament tests. The temperament test will help us accommodate puppies with their perfect family. If we notice chocolate matches your family but also matches the family on #3 on the list, then the chocolate puppy will be yours because you are number one. The same goes for male or female preference.
