All Australian Labradoodle coat types fall into one of the following categories; fleece, wool, or hair.
The Fleece textured coat is a soft texture as in the Angora goat. It can either have a straight wavy look or a soft spiraling curl look. It is an easy to manage textured coat. This is our most preferred coat type by clients and ourselves. We have found most fleece coats to be allergy-friendly.
The Wool coat is similar to a poodle texture and feel. It does require regular grooming and combing.
The hair coat has odor and sheds in varying degrees. It is most like the coat type of Labradors. It is usually seen in early generation dogs such as the first cross of a lab and poodle, F1b, and F2b Labradoodles and Goldendoodles. This is not an allergy-friendly coat.
