ALAA Membership

“The Australian Labradoodle Association of America (ALAA) protects the welfare of the Labradoodle and Australian Labradoodle breeds. The organization promotes responsible dog companionship by cataloguing helpful information about the breeds and by offering networking services to breeders and owners.

As a leader in this effort, we are working to make a difference.

The ALAA manages the largest database of Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles in the world, with vital statistics for nearly 20,000 dogs and ancestral information for more than 25,000 dogs. Our membership grows daily, and we invite you to join us as we help to write the history of these incredible breeds.

Silver Paw Breeder

“In addition to the hip and elbow clearances required of all member breeders, an eye exam clearance from a certified opthamologist must be submitted for all dogs in a breeder’s program in order to be awarded the Silver Paw logo. A breeder must re-test and resubmit clearance to retain the Silver Paw logo. Breeders must re-test each breeding age dog every 18 months and submit clearances to retain the Silver Paw. 

Golden Paw Breeder

“In addition to the hip and elbow clearances required of all Member Breeders, the following tests are required to be awarded both the Silver and Gold Paw logos: an eye exam clearance from a certified opthamologist, EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse) and prcd-PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy) clearance. If status is verifiable via parent dog health test reports, the DNA test will be waived. Dogs with unknown EIC or PRA status must be tested. At this time, test results for EIC will be accepted from the University of Minnesota, Paw Print Genetics, and VetGen only, and test results for prcd-PRA will be accepted from Optigen and Paw Prints Genetics only.”
