Allergies / Molting
This article is worth addressing various issues
First of all, if you want to make sure that your dog is not allergic, choose a kennel that only breeds multi-generational Australian Labradoodle. In the early generations of Labradoodle (F1, F1B plus all new infusions with Wheaten, Spaniel etc.) you can never be so sure. What's more, you can take home a puppy who didn't feel you and after a year, after the first hair exchange, you will have to give the dog back because it will cause severe allergic reactions.
Your Australian Labradoodle kennel must be registered with an international organization that will provide transparent information about your puppy's generation. ALFA-Europe does not allow new infusions or early generations of Australian Labradoodle.
Secondly, allergy is really an individual matter. A person may be allergic to fur, epidermis, saliva, urine or other secretions. According to the assumptions of the creators of the breed, allergy to saliva and fur should be eliminated. In practice it is different with saliva, so you should visit the farm each time.
If the dog is well-groomed, well-nourished and the epidermis does not peel off excessively, this should not be a problem. Various dog care products like PENTALCLEANSE can be helpful. My observations show that the most problematic are allergies to proteins contained in urine. That is why the allergy sufferer should always visit the breeding farm and spend time with adults as well
puppies. I always conduct such a visit in two stages, so as to be sure when the allergy occurs, whether it is a urine allergy or not. This is a key issue, after all urine is quickly eliminated from our surroundings when the dog is growing. In order not to go into details here, I inform interested families about the whole process. In this matter, I must count on your trust and order
testing and my tips are a very important thing in the process and can affect whether your puppy will eventually get to you or not.
Australian Labradoodle for allergy sufferers
I could write about allergies for hours. I've learned a lot over the years. The beginnings were not easy, because these are matters to which the family approach and the help of the breeder are very important. That is why all allergic families are looked after by us in a special way. Thanks to this, during the last 5 years we have not had a situation in which, due to allergies, we had to change the puppy's home.
As for molting, Labradoodle, these are not dogs that moult like other breeds. In contrast, dead hair should be removed by combing. Otherwise, smelt will form. Hair can fall out in a few cases - hormonal changes (in breeding bitches, especially after litter), inadequate diet when dogs are sick.
I must also refer to different generations of Australian Labradoodle here. Of course, we cannot guarantee no moulting in early generations and in various infusions. Then usually young puppies do not moult and after a year, after the first coat change, riding begins.
