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.

About Allergies

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!

Color

You will find Labradoodles in a wider range of colors than Goldendoodles: white, cream, tan, coffee, chocolate, red, or black.

Coat

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.

Temperament

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.

Care

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.

Health Concerns

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!

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
