The newly created Labraheeler is a designer dog breed that was made from mixing a Labrador Retriever and an Australian Cattle Dog. The result will be a cute, medium sized dog that will resemble both of the ancestor dogs. Both breeds are sweet and affectionate on their own, and when brought together they make a wonderful breed that is loyal to their families and good around children. Both parents are quite active, so you can expect your Labraheeler puppy to be the same. If you are an active person that is looking for a jogging or hiking companion, this hybrid breed is well suited for you.

Labraheeler Breed History

Although there are so many types of hybrid breeds, they are still a new trend. Because of the recency of these dogs, there is often little documented about the breeds. The Labraheeler is known to be a mix of the Labrador Retriever and the Australian Cattle Dog, and therefore the creation of these designer dogs has to begin with the origin of the parent breeds. The famous Labrador Retriever has ancestors who have been around since the 17th century in Canada. They were one type of Canadian Water Dogs, others being the Landseer, the Flat-Coated Retriever, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever, and the Newfoundland Retriever. The Labrador Retriever was found by some visitors as well as the second Earl of Malmesbury who noticed the dogs working with fishermen. The Earl then arranged for some dogs of the breed to be brought to his estate in England, where he established a kennel. Many more of the dogs were sold to English gentry throughout the 1800s. These dogs were given their name by the Earl of Malmesbury. They lost popularity in England later on in the 19th century because of heavy dog tax and intense British quarantine laws, which made importation difficult. It was early on in the 1800s that Australian Cattle Dogs were used by cattle ranchers to maintain the herds. They were often used on lands west of the Sydney metropolitan region of Australia. The Australian Cattle Dog was created in the 1830s and was perfectly suited to the job and climate of these large fields. They specialized at nipping at the heels of the cattle but remained silent and did not stampede them. There was a cross between a native Dingo and a Smithfield, which was the creation of a man named Timmins. These dogs, given the name of Timmon’s bitters, were too aggressive, and the breed was altered ten years later by Thomas Hall, who crossed a Dingo with a Scottish Blue-Merle Collie. This new version of the dog was referred to as Hall’s heelers. The two types were bred together, along with Dalmatians and some Black-and-Tan Kelpie Sheepdogs. It was in 1893 that the Australian Cattle Dog was finally perfected.

Labraheeler Breed Appearance

The Labraheeler is a hybrid dog that has an appearance which includes traits from both the Labrador Retriever and the Australian Cattle Dog. Labs are athletic and solidly built dogs that have wide muzzles and broad heads. Their ears are pendant and medium in size, and their eyes have friendly and happy expressions. Their chests extend all the way to the elbows as they are quite large. These dogs have straight forelegs and strong backs with level toplines. The breed is often distinguished by their “otter” tails, which are thicker at the base and medium length. These dogs also have webbed feet, which makes them very skilled at swimming. The other parent dog is compact and muscular. They are not quite as high as they are long, and have tails that curve a bit. The Australian Cattle Dog has slightly rounded and broad heads that have definite stops. These dogs have triangularly shaped ears that are wide set and stand up straight. Their oval sized eyes should be a dark brown in color and the broad and muscular necks should widen as they near the body.

Labraheeler Breed Maintenance

Although the Labrador Retriever sheds heavily, the Australian Cattle Dog’s coat is easier to maintain. Therefore, the Labraheeler is bound to be a mix between the two. The Labrador Retriever needs to be brushed on a regular basis, and bathed occasionally too, since they love to play in the dirt. Australian Cattle Dogs, on the other hand, should still be brushed regularly, even though they shed much less. This breed should only be given baths when they need it. Apart from grooming, Labraheelers will need the same maintenance as all other breeds, such as teeth care, ear cleaning and nail clipping. To prevent unwanted dental issues, you should brush your dog’s teeth every day if you can, or at least two to three times per week as a minimum. You will also want to avoid ear infections by wiping them clean every week. Nails will need to be clipped about once or twice a month.

Labraheeler Temperament

The Labraheeler is a smart and affectionate dog, and therefore should not be hard to train. This breed will be suitable for a home with children as long as they were brought up with them or supervised, since they can bite if handled roughly. They are also playful and docile, as well as friendly and gentle. These dogs are usually cautious when meeting new people, but will become friendly and affectionate once they get to know and trust them. They are loyal towards their families, and are good at guarding the house. Since they are quite family oriented, this breed may not like being left alone for long periods of time. You should train your Labraheeler while they are young, since they can sometimes be stubborn when they grow up. As with all dog breeds, the Labraheeler should be properly socialized as a puppy. Introducing your new dog to all kinds of scenarios will help them grow into confident and mentally sound pets.

Labraheeler Activity Requirements

This hybrid breed is known to have pretty diverse skills, including police work, agility, hunting, guarding, jogging, tracking and search and rescue. They are active pets that will need to be kept busy throughout the day. They can also develop destructive behaviors if not occupied for long periods of time. These dogs are not a good choice for owners who cannot commit to a lot of daily exercise, as they need to be active for at least 45 to 60 minutes per day.

Frank is quite intellectual and a loving dog. He loves being around people, and will play with everyone and all dogs; big or small. With that being said, he is very chill and loves his naps! Frank has been a positive influence in our lives and we could not imagine being without him. The one thing I would say is that the weight reference for labraheelers is far off in reference to Frank. He is 5 months and is already 45lbs!

We’ve only had our little guy for a few days. We adopted him from a local shelter and they say he’s a labraheeler; he looks to be so. So far he’s been awesome! Lots of energy, but responds well to redirection (when chewing on things he’s not supposed to), potty training with treats he has responded to quickly- we’re already to very few (1 or less) accidents a day and crate training at night is now no big deal. He does bite a lot when playing but no more than any average pup I’d say, we just be sure to always play with toys not our hands when playing. We love him already so much and can’t wait to take him to the beach and local hiking trails!

he is incredibly easy to train, it only took a hour or two for him to learn lay, and pick up hand signals. i didn't even have to teach him place. he is a impressively athletic dog, always jumping over our tall fence. he does get aggressive to new people, so he has to be properly introduced he does where a muzzle on walk, to prevent from biting other people. he is one beautiful dog though, black blue and white!

At first Buster was wild and pushy but as we interacted he settled in and he has become a very well mannered chill easygoing guy that loves to cuddle he has been adopted about 5 times before we met and no one was loyal to Buster. Since I've had him he has transformed into loyal companion and has got comfortable and doesn't run away anymore. He runs off still but now comes back home on his own without having to be chased or found...I am so proud to be Buster's human as he has literally saved my life due to being suicidal. But Buster read right through it and became my reason to live and now he is my reason to thrive and succeed together until the day one of us passes on. 2 and a half years now we been partners and each day it gets better for both of us now that we both have a reason to wag our nubs...

She is super affectionate and protective of her family. She barks at new people but isn’t aggressive, after a few mins she calms down and starts licking them. She is very active and intelligent and loves long hikes every weekend. There are 3 children, 14 yo, 16 yo, and 9 yo and she is very gentle with everyone. She is still a puppy so she nips but never aggressively.

We've only had Lana for three weeks but she has already brought so much joy to our home. She's bright, brave, charming, and ever so curious. We've begun puppy classes and hope to channel her natural sweetness and smarts into training as a therapy dog. She is immediate friends with everyone she meets, and is as cute as a button with gorgeous red heeler markings and floppy ears (time will tell if they will stay!). Our trainer says she has a fantastic personality and will make a wonderful dog one day.

We got Midnight when he was 6 weeks old when our local shelter had a booth set up at an annual 5k and reverse psychology failed amongst our parents. As a pup, he didn't really like being picked up or held, but he always had a fascination with car seats, and us having young children in the family, there were always car seats around. He would climb into them, and most times, fall asleep in them. While he did have a large kennel/cage with pillows on the bottom and a blanket, we never really discouraged letting him sleep with us in our beds or lay on the couch with us. As he got older he had so much energy and enjoyed meeting new people. The only time you would hear him bark is if he is overwhelmed by how many people are around him, or if someone walks past him/comes to the door without giving him some love. We taught him how to close the back door when he comes in from using the bathroom. He hates baths. It's like, if you even mention the word indirectly, he will cower and head back to lay down as far away from the bathroom as possible. However, while he may be terrified of bathrooms, they are his number one place of comfort if it were to storm. He doesn't have as much energy now as he did before, but he's always down to race to the mailbox around the corner, go on adventures down the street if left outside too long (we don't have a fence on our house but all of our neighbors do, so it's fun seeing a shadow with 4 legs run up to your car at 2am), and if he ever seems resistant on coming back into the house, just start jogging home and say "Imma beat you" or "Let's go lay down" you will surely lose that race each time. While he may be an absolute sweetheart who will throw himself on strangers for love and affection, he is hesitant when it comes to children. He would never bite unless playing, and even then its not enough to feel any pain, plus he gives you 1000 kisses to make up for it; he is not by any means a fan of loud, obnoxious kids. If the younger children in our family come over and are playing at a volume that is too much for him, he will raise his voice and bark to get them to quiet down, but never his big boy bark. I love this dog with all my heart. He is the sweetest and the perfect boy for our household. He is loving and affectionate, but still likes his space; he is sassy to the max at times; he loves to go on car rides; he loves to be your cuddle buddy when it's time to go to sleep (well... he takes up 70% of the bed but gets upset if you roll over to get comfortable in your own bed).

While I’m not 100% sure my dog is a Labraheeler (he’s a rescue), his physical and behavioral characteristics definitely fit the bill. He’s incredibly active and incredibly smart—a great combination, as long as I stay consistent with behavior expectations and keep him busy. Watching his brain work is just phenomenal. He’s a problem solver and an independent thinker. He can be rather stubborn, but he learns amazingly fast. When he doesn’t heed a command, it’s not because he doesn’t know what to do, but because he’s headstrong (hence the need to keep him physically and mentally active and to maintain his behavioral expectations). He’s not a huge fan of strangers, opting to protect his pack rather than make new friends. He likes to be in the same room as his people, but he doesn’t need or want constant affection. Nuzzling and cuddling after a work day or after a play session is plenty for him, as long as he can snuggle up to me at bedtime. He can get anxious and over-excited rather quickly. When I first got him, he and I really had to work together to help manage his separation anxiety. He’s much better with being away from me at this stage, but even the smallest change to his routine can really throw him off. He’s in good physical shape, though he does have a sensitive stomach. It doesn’t help that he’s a scavenger and a glutton who will try anything once (or twice, even if it’s not food). All in all, he’s an absolutely fantastic dog. He has his such a strong personality and an incredible sense of loyalty: willing to listen but also willing to take the lead if necessary. He’s been nothing short of a blessing.

I rescued Lexi from the shelter. I can't believe someone didn't want this beautiful dog with crystal blue, almost white eyes. She's very protective of our family. She isn't always great with other dogs, though, as she's very dominant. She might take a little while to get used to some kids, but she always loves meeting new adults. Interestingly, she is sometimes hesitant around female adults. Also, she is a lazy dog who stays thin and doesn't need constant exercise.

We adopted him almost two weeks ago and I'm amazed at what an amazing dog he is. He is two years old. I would describe him as very affectionate, eager to please, calm inside but very energetic and playful when it's appropriate, training has been very easy so far. . I He already knew the sit command but it was weak and he pulled on the leash quite a bit when he smelled something enticing. In a week he has learned not to pull ( as much) and now knows sit stay and down commands. So easy to train so far, he learns the desired response within a few tries, then it's just practice. I could not be happier with our new edition to our family.

Our sweet Hailey is a rescue pup. She's 4 mo and we got her 2 mo ago. I've had Labs in the past so I especially notice the heeler traits. They blend perfectly with the lab traits tho! Our girl is so easy to train. She's eagar to please and learns quickly what is acceptable and what is not. She potty trained faster than any dog I've had too! She is active and playful before she gets snuggly. She's a bit stubborn and pouts if she gets in trouble or doesn't get what she wants NOW. But she's perfect and already an established member of the family! She has nipped at the kids when they run with her but she's been scholded a couple times and is not doing it much anymore. You can tell she stops herself! I highly recommend this mixed breed! We crate trained her and I highly recommend that too. She seems content with the structure of schedule crate training offers. She goes into her kennel like a kid in her room. To nap or hangout or sneak contraband in. She's super sneaky with socks and random things. Also a trash digger obsessed with shredding paper towels and toilet paper. She's too calculated at times, like maneuvering her body to block our view of what she's chewing on. I could go on all day so I will stop:D

It only took 3 minutes to teach him to shake when he first came home, and now he can do over fifteen diffrent tricks! However, he can be very stubborn. Also, if you’re upset, Mo can tell right away and will try his hardest to cheer you up. Labraheelers are great dogs, you just have to make sure to excise them enough.

And this must be checked out why. I had mostly labs growing up and I can see the slight differences such as Lexi does need to think she has a job to do before play time. She is very quiet and does not bark just for the fun of it. She always greets people friendly with some talk and jumps if she has seen you before. She has two cat friends that she is loved to and she does understand not to bug them too much but she checks each night before bed to make sure there home. I rescued/adopted her from Arkansas shelter best dog ever!

Mia is very energetic and a social butterfly. She needs at least an hour of play with other dogs or a long walk with lots of meet-and-greats. This type of energy isn't for everyone, and I have had to adjust to her liveliness. She forces me to get up and move, which I love. She's very sweet with other dogs and people, though she does nip sometimes when she gets super excited. I got her at 4 months from a shelter so she was a bit skittish and still barks at things that scare or startle her. Living in the city there is quite a bit of hustle-and-bustle, but she has adjusted well to the things that she fears. We continue to work on experiencing new things and socializing with others. She learns new tricks quickly and is just the sweetest companion! I am so happy with this breed and feel lucky that I found her!

Buddy is the best dog I have ever owned, but I would not suggest these dogs for everyone! As a pup he was a terror (he liked to be mouthy and chew on things and grab things and run away) but as the years have gone by he has gotten a lot more mellow. He was very easy to train, except walking just took time for him to mellow out some. He has a really nice coat that stays clean. He is a sweet dog, very protective of his family, and an amazing hiking buddy! Just be ready to play for an hour at the least daily because if you don't they will drive you nuts!

Lenny is a very sweet and affectionate dog. He is pretty low energy, but enjoys occasional walks. His favorite thing to do is cuddle up on the couch and eat treats. He loves cats and other dogs, but did have herding tendencies when he was a puppy. He very calm and never leaves my side.

Rocky is much bigger than what has been stated as the "standard" for Labraheelers. He weighs 69 pounds, is solid, and if I remember height correctly is about 22 1/2" while length is around 23"? He is an excellent judge of character, and responds to my body language immediately! I've had to tell him No 3 times per item (like NO to chewing on the leg of my dining room table) for him to understand that that's off limits. After the first night being home, and my waking up to being smothered, he knows that I'm the boss. :) I wouldn't trade Rocky for all the tea in China! He's the greatest and sweetest dog ever!

I got Rocky at 7 weeks of age. He was NOT overly active at all. As he's gotten older he is enjoying being outside more. He has definitely got a sense of humor, and is my "Velcro" dog! He goes virtually everywhere with me, unless I feel it's too hot or cold for him, at which time he stays at home. He doesn't like it at all! Will bark nonstop until I return.

She's a very awesome dog, she's is a rescue and very quickly became part of the family. She's now queen of the house. I've had pure bred labs before, she's my first mixed breed. The only draw back is her constant need to bite. Other then that I would recommend this breed for any family

This is 1st time I've had one, always wanted a chocolate lab & 2 weeks ago he was dumped off at our farm in the country. We could tell he was a Lab/Heeler mix He was in very good health, we love him so much, but our other 2 smaller dogs are starting to just now put up with him. Lol

he is very young, so he takes a lot of naps. though when he is awake he is very active. he likes to explore and find new things to play with. he is learning quickly where he can't go in the house and to go potty outside. we haven't had him for long, but he already trusts us and tries to protect the house from intruders.

We picked Callie up thanks for a craigslist pets ad. Originally we were told she was a German Shepherd and Blue Heeler mix. Through educated guessing, various vet inputs and a lot of research we are determined she is now an Labraheeler. (Also known as American Little.) She is a medium sized all black dog with the exception of a white mark on her chest, a faint white chin and two white toes. She is lovable and playful, you can really tell she wants to make you happy. She is not much of a lap cuddler, and she loves her own bed. Labraheelers (or American Lattles.) are perfect family dogs, and do well in a multidog/multipet family.

I have owned Heelers and Labs independently with great success. Abbey is highly intelligent and she’s super laidback! She is great with kids and other animals. Because of her temperament, we just got another labraheeler puppy.

Dax is very loyal and wants to be around me all the time. I got him from a shelter when he was 5 years old. He seems to enjoy any adventure where he gets to be by my side. He is a retired therapy dog and is very affectionate with all people.

Best experience, I actually got two beautiful brothers from the same liter that were rescues. Not only do we get many compliments for the both of them they’re a very lovable, active and protective family that I wouldn’t trade for the world. They’re both only around 14 months old, but they’ve learned so much, they’re the BEST dogs to teach due to their heritage. Personally they’ve only been a blessing and I’m glad they’re out of the situation they once were in.
