    Foster family program

    Sometimes it so happens that the farmer can have more of the dogs, an example of this might be to have two males.
    To avoid a lot of unpleasant situations, for example the marking of territory or an increase in heat of the females, a good solution might be putting a dog under the care of a foster family.
    Each dog requires time and dedication by the people around it. Therefore, the more dogs there are, the less attention we may be able to offer our furry friend.
    The idea of a foster family is that it cares for the pet throughout its life although the the breeder is its “owner „. The owner is in charge of overseeing the reproductive process unless the foster family is given permission to get involved in this process.
    The code of ethics Alfa Europe says every breeder should be committed to promote the “foster families” programm. It is one of the many legitimate and appropriate guidelines imposed by the organization, which was founded for the sake of the good and happiness of your dog and the proper development of the breed.

    Pedigree registration ALFA-Europe

    All of our dogs are registered with the Alpha Europe Foundation.

    Alfa Europe is an organization based in the Netherlands, founded to preserve, guard and protect the Original Australian Labrador according to the vision of the creator of the race (Rutland Manor and Tegan Park in Australia). Alfa Europe monitors the transparency of the process of breeding and runs a comprehensive system of registration. Everything is done under strict control, so that the Australian Labradors have a very good chance to last for years as a pure breed.

    Australian Labradors as we all know are not yet recognized by the FCI. Hence Alfa Europe holds the unique role of sole responsibility of being committed to achieving recognition for the Labrador by the FCI.

    Alfa controls and supervises the culture of breeding, and provides comprehensive, reliable information for prospective owners and Australian Labrador enthusiasts.

    Alfa Europe aims to:

    1. Use a strict breeding program, with particular emphasis on dog health
      The requirements to test are as follows:

      • Early diagnosis of hip
      • A genetic test prcd-PRA (progressive retinal atrophy)
      • Von Hillebrand’s Disease Type I

      Only females and males which gain successful results are paired. Another equally important issue is the pairing of the dog in the most friendly, intuitive nature.

      The aim is to create a dog designed to work well with man.

    2. Alfa Europe oversees the registration of the Australian Labrador only grown according to the principles laid down by breeding rules (based on the vision of the founder of the breed).
    3. The organization provides registration of dogs and puppies of European breeders on their website:

      http://www.alfa-europe.org/NL/geregistreerde-fokhonden.htm

      http://www.alfa-europe.org/NL/nestregistratie.htm

    4. Alfa Europe imposes the need for taking a DNA test on all breeding dogs and their puppies with the information saved on the database on the basis of which they are issued pedigrees. Thanks to this the Australian Labrador is under strict control and the future owner is assured that the Australian Labrador is authentic and healthy.

    Education at a glance

    Educating our puppy should start as early as possible. The ability to learn in a young puppy is remarkably huge even though we may not see it and simply treat it like a fluffy, cuddly toy . We could not be further from the truth because the puppy very quickly picks up both positive and negative behaviour traits.

    Basic advice:

    Teaching cleanliness at home is not complicated.

    Upon arrival in its new home, the puppy would not have learned to maintain consistent cleanliness and would relieve itself in different places. The exception is its den; a puppy would normally keep this area clean. The way to quickly achieve success is frequent and regular outings with the puppy, especially upon waking up, after meals and during play time. Do NOT punish the puppy if it happens to make a mistake accidentally. However, you should always reward the puppy when it does something right. Do not wait for the puppy to signal that it wants to go for a walk, as it is not yet able to control its physiological needs. Besides, the puppy is too engrossed in learning about the new world, to think about its urine. Sometimes the puppy may get restless and begin to spin intensely, sniffing the floor, which is a sign that it needs to go out for a walk. The puppy should be taken for a walk as often as possible and rewarded when it manages to relieve itself in the correct place.

    Our dog is not the navel of the world.

    Let us avoid teaching our puppy that there will always be someone around to play with it or to put it to bed (unless the puppy’s owner can meet the conditions to do so for many years to come).
    Why? There will come a time when the euphoria of being in a new home would have settled and the prose of everyday life will return (work, school, the duties of everyday life). Your dog will not understand this seperation. The puppy quickly gets used to the rhythm of everyday life and our job is to get it used to the rhythm from the very beginning to prevent separation anxiety, nervousness, or other similar forms of behaviour.
    Puppies should get used to the ritual of everyday life as quickly as possible so that they will feel safe.
    Observe the regular times of feeding, walking, rest and sleep.

    Training a dog.

    The best training method is to use positive reinforcement: the desired behavior should be rewarded every time. The reward should become a permanent fixture. When beginning the training, it is advisable to use the help of a qualified instructor. Before enrolling your puppy in a school, you should look at the structure of the course: see if the dogs willingly and joyfully participate or instead look intimidated. Also check whether the instructors are calm when giving instructons or if they physically tug their dogs instead.
    I wish you the very best of success.

    Australian Labradoodle – Information on the breed

    http://australian-labradoodle.org.uk/category/australian-labradoodle/about-the-breed/

    The overall appearance and purpose of the labradoodle
    The Australian labradoodle is a well balanced, intelligent dog with a cheerful, friendly disposition. It is often used to assist people with allergies, asthma. The labradoodle is not loosing fur. It also serves people with disabilities as a guide dog.

    Dimensions and the body build of the labradoodle
    Specific dimensions are not as important as the proportions of the dog: The dog’s height to length ratio should be no more than ten to twelve.
    There are three basic sizes of the Australian labradoodle

    • Standard (more than 60cm)
    • Medium (from 45cm to 60cm)
    • Miniature (less than 45cm)

    „The female” labradoodles are usually somewhat smaller than the male ones. The Australian labradoodle should not be too chubby, nor too thin. It should be muscular without being able to feel the ribs and spine. The dog ought to be able to perform its basic duties without much effort.

    Head of the labradoodle
    General features:
    The labradoodle has moderately broad skull, wide muzzle and large, fleshy nose.
    The face gives the impression of a gentle, friendly, happy dog, which never gets bored.
    The eyes are oval or round, large and visible. The labradoodle’s look is lively, interesting, clever and focused on the person.

    Details:
    One of the Characteristic features of the Australian labradoodle are generally long eyelashes that protect hair from getting into its eyes. The eye color should be consistent with the pigment of the dog’s fur. Black and dark eyes belong to dogs which are dark and cream, hazel eyes occur in labradoodles with caramel pigment, or chocolate and coffee coloured. The dogs with blue, two-tone eyes or sharp, piercing eyes are not acceptable for breeding. The ears have a lot of fur, set slightly below the top of the head. The ear (without hair) should not extend beyond the nose of the dog. The correct bite of the labradoodle breed is a scissor bite.
    The teeth and gums should be strong and healthy.

    Labradoodle’s neck, back, tail
    The neck is strong, muscular, slightly arched and of moderate length.
    The back is horizontal, with upper trunk line falling slightly behind the withers and moderately sloping to the hips. The tail is saber-shaped, and should be set low. When the labradoodle is excited, the tail may extend happily over the back.

    The Australian labradoodle’s legs:

    Forelegs
    The shoulders should be muscular, well developed, but not too heavy. They are relatively long, wide, with moderate angulation. The elbows should not turn to the inside or to the outside, and should be firmly positioned in front part of the ribs. The torelegs are well boned, set vertically into the ground, with short, moderately strong wrists.

    Hind legs
    The hindquarters have well developed thighs with big muscles, moderate angulation. The knee-ankle part of the leg should be longer than the ankle-foot one.

    Feet
    Feet should be oval or round, strong and compact, with well-arched toes and thick pads. Dogs should be born with no rear dew claws.

    Robe
    The Australian labradoodle’s coat does not have an undercoat (it’s single-layer).
    There are two types of the coat:

    1. Wool-coat-type hair, similar to that of a poodle
    2. Fleece-type hair, wavy or slightly curly.

    The hair is a very important feature of the dog, even more important than the temperament and conformation of the dog. The labradoodles generally do not lose hair, nor have a distinctive smell. However, this does not mean that dog doesn’t lose hair altogether. In order to keep the hair in a good condition the dog should be combed once a week.

    Labradoodle in motion
    During the run it may seem that the dog is hovering above the ground. It moves gently, airy and athletically. The front and the back legs should not be twisted inward or outward.
    While running, its step should coincide with the direction of the line of gravity. Viewed from the side, the front legs should be pulled smoothly to the end without the need of bending and moving up to the top. The hocks are strong, short, well-angulated, well pulled forward under the body.

    Colours of the coat

    • Black
    • Silver
    • Shades of cream, caramel and apricot
    • Red
    • Chocolate
    • Coffee with milk
    • Parchment
    • Blue
    • Lavender

    Allowed, but not preferred is the so called “parti” color.
    Any differences from the above mentioned points should be considered abnormal.
