Labradoodles

Labradoodles, the ultimate family dog. 

The modern Labradoodle breed is the result of canine breeders trying to create a hypoallergenic dog that would still be able to perform reliably as a guide dog. This was achieved by breeding the Labrador Retriever and the Standard Poodle.  Today, Labradoodles are renown for their temperament, loyalty and intelligence.   

 

Labradoodles fall in the mid to large size dog category and possess many of the basic characteristics that modern families look for in a dog. They’re quick witted, easy to train and get along great with both humans and other canines. 

As mentioned, the Labradoodle’s hypoallergenic traits stretch back to its origins and that is why many families today look to Labradoodle breeders when considering a puppy for their home

Children friendly

Labradoodles get along well with children and will have the drive to play well beyond their puppy years. From toddlers to teenagers, Doodles will always be awesome and loyal play companions for the whole family.

Balanced energy level

While Doodles still need their walks and play time, they don't require the constant stimulation that many working dog breeds need to be kept satisfied. It is recommended that Doodles get a half an hour to an hour's worth of exercise daily.

Excellent housekeeper

Labradoodles are very alert and aware of their surroundings, hence why they make excellent home guardians and will alert their family to approaching strangers. And while Doodles are protective of their home and family, they're not known for being an aggressive breed.

Very trainable

Both Labrador retrievers and Poodles themselves are intelligent and quick (and eager) to learn, so it's no surprise most Doodles grasp basic canine training with ease. Whether it is basic obedience or specific working tasks, Doodles are always up for the challenge. Doodles need just as much brain exercise as they do physical.

Personality

Labradoodles are the definition of fun and loving. Their eagerness to please makes them great when it comes to living in a household with children.  They are absolutely ‘people dogs’ and love to play with their family, but typically aren’t over-excited once play time is over. In addition, their loyalty and intelligence are ever evident in their interactions with their owners. While curious and adventurous outdoors, Labradoodles often relax and are comfortable with cuddling on the couch once indoors. 

 

 

Health

Generally, Labradoodles are healthy dogs, but like all animals they can be prone to some health issues like hip dysplasia, ear infections and allergies. Please review information regarding our health guarantee on our Service and Policies page under the “About Us” category in the menu. 

Care

While Doodles are relatively easy to care after, they do require more attention than a house cat or Chihuahua. A large component of caring for Labradoodles is ensuring they get their daily exercise so they can burn off energy that is inherent to a breed of their size and intelligence. It can be a walk, a jog or long game of fetch — the Labradoodle will keep up and as long they get their exercise they’ll be satisfied. It is also important to exercise your Doodles brain through simple games and training routines. 

Feeding

There’s many factors such as size, metabolism and exercise level that may determine exactly what and how much food you feed your dog. It is recommended that a typical Labradoodle eat two cups of quality dry dog food, twice daily. Breaking up their food into two meals with adequate time between helps in avoiding bloating which can happen if too much food is consumed in one meal. 

Grooming

While frequency of grooming may be dependent on your Doodles generation and genetics, you can expect that you will have to bring your dog to the groomer two to four times a year.
