What exactly is a Labradoodle?

Labradoodle puppies are a hybrid of Labrador Retrievers and Standard Poodles and are increasingly multi-generational, meaning both parents are Labradoodles.  Ideally their grandparents would be Labradoodles, too. Please remember to do the proper research into a reputable breeders, so that your Labradoodle puppies will have the temperament and qualities true to their hybrid breed of dogs.

The origins of this popular breed

The Labradoodle puppy first became known in 1988, when an Australian breeder named Wally Conron crossed a Labrador Retriever and Standard Poodle at the Royal Guide Dogs Associations of Australia. His goal was to create the perfect combination of the low shedding coat of the Poodle mixed with their high trainability and the Lab’s love of working with people. These qualities, if mixed properly, would make them serve as excellent guide dogs, especially for people who suffer from allergies. One of Conron’s Labradoodles worked as a guide dog for a Hawaiian woman for 10 years! It is, however, certainly worth noting that Labradoodle puppies and adult dogs need consistent redirection, training, and reinforcement.

What to expect owning this precious breed

Much like the field Labrador Retriever and Poodle ancestors, Labradoodles love, love, love the water. They’ll take a dip or dive oft without being prompted! All hybrid breed of dogs have idiosyncrasies and some quirky, but lovable attributes. Take for instance, Labradoode puppies will chew on things they shouldn’t when they’re bored or left alone for too long.  To negate this nasty trait, give your Labradoodle puppy bones to chew. They are also avid yard diggers so beware!
