Do Australian labradoodles shed?

Yes, Australian labradoodles shed, but far less than most other breeds. Although Australian labradoodles are often described as ‘hypoallergenic’, no dog breed is 100% guaranteed not to trigger allergies.

At least three generations are needed to create a non-shedding, allergy-friendly Australian labradoodle. Both its parents and grandparents should be non-shedders, and even then it may shed slightly.

If your Australian labradoodle has a wool coat (like a poodle) or a hair coat (similar to a Labrador’s), it will need regular brushing and grooming to keep it clean and control shedding. Australian labradoodles with a wool coat are the easiest to manage, and for this reason, they are the most popular choice.
