A Labradoodle is a mixed-breed dog, the product of breeding a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. Labradoodles were originally bred in Australia, and like the Goldendoodle, are a perfect solution for challenged folks needing a companion that wouldn’t agitate their allergies, the Labradoodle’s non-shedding coat has made them a family favorite since their appearance in the early 1990′s. The Labradoodle is now its own self-sustaining breed, however the AKC has not recognized the Labradoodle as an offficial breed yet.
Proper Labradoodles are non-shedding, so if you and/or your family members are allergic to dog hair, you may have found the perfect pet (aside from fish!). If your family has more severe hair allergies, a backcross Labradoodle (F1-B) might be the answer for you. Clancy Aussie Doodles breeds hypoallergenic and non-shedding Australian Labradoodles, and is here to find you the perfect dog for your family!
Most adult Labradoodles fit within the ranges below:
|Height||22-26 inches||22-26 inches|
|Weight||45-60 pounds||55-75 pounds|
|Height||18-21 inches||18-21 inches|
|Weight||35-50 pounds||45-55 pounds|
|Height||14-17 inches||14-17 inches|
|Weight||25-40 pounds||35-55 pounds|
You will find Labradoodles in a wider range of colors than Goldendoodles: white, cream, tan, coffee, chocolate, red, or black.
Labradoodle’s coats are either the fleecy shag, or a soft wooly Poodle-curl. Their coat is typically full and soft and grows to be a 4″-7″ coat.
Labradoodles have the best of their parents’ temperament. They are devoted, playful, obedient, kid-friendly and clever like both Labrador Retrievers and Poodles. Very easy to train, Labradoodles are social and enjoy the company of people and other dogs. They’re comfortable with either city or country life, as long as they have your good company.
Moderate exercise is sufficient for a Labradoodle, likely of a daily fetch game with a long walk. Grooming is a rare task. A longer-haired Labradoodle will need a good brushing once or twice a week, but a shorter-haired or clipped Labradoodle will only need brushing twice a month.
As a mixed breed dog, Labradoodles are healthier than either of their parents, aren’t prone to any canine diseases of major concern, and have a life expectancy of 13-15 years.
CHD, PRA, vonWillebrands Disease (vWD), elbow and patella disorders are possible, and breeders commonly test for hip dysplasia, eye problems, heart disease and vWD.
We love our Labradoodles, and we at Clancy Aussie Doodles hope you will find out what an amazing breed this is!
In general, the most accurate way to measure a dog’s body temperature is rectally. However, some ear thermometers made especially for dog’s ears can be considered somewhat accurate. In a pinch, temperature can be measured in the axillary region (underarm) and one degree can be added to the final reading. Be aware that this measurement is approximate and NOT considered very reliable. It is also important to understand that you cannot gauge a dog’s body temperature by touch. In addition, a warm or dry nose does not necessarily indicate a fever or any other health problem.
