Health Testing

Mandatory health testing is required by the Australian Labradoodle Club of America for members to register as a breeder, and register breeding foundation stock as well as their offspring. . This is very exciting news for the Australian Labradoodle, with the advanced technology in genetic health testing this will be one of the first breeds to emerge and continue to develop with genetic soundness. Most breed clubs, only recommend specific health testing, and are heavily influenced by the old timers or folks that have been breeding for many years, these folks are the hardest people to convince that they need to do the health testing specific to their breed.

The future soundness and preservation of the breed they have chosen depends upon it. I have heard it said many times by an old timer that “My dog looks fine and acts fine, so it must be fine.” Lack of health testing and lack of advanced technology is responsible for much of the un-soundness and the numerous genetic issues many breeds suffer with today.

All of our breeding stock meet and exceed all required health testing.

ALCA recognizes that not all dogs identified as Australian Labradoodles are the real deal.  The certification is an effort to make clear the identification process available to those interested in purchasing a true Australian Labradoodle.

Dogs that are awarded the ALCA Certified Australian Labradoodle logo have lineage that is traced back to the Australian lines produced by the breed developers (Tegan Park and/or Rutland Manor).
