All About: Labradoodles!


labradoodle pup


Labradoodle is a mixed-breed dog created by crossing the Labrador Retriever and the Standard or Miniature Poodle. The term first appeared in 1955, but was not popularized until 1988, where the mix was used as an allergen-free guide dog. Currently, they are not considered a breed.





Because the Labradoodle is a hybrid and not a breed, puppies do not have consistently predictable characteristics. While many Labradoodles display desired traits, their appearance and behavioral characteristics remain, to some extent, unpredictable. As such, Labradoodles’ hair can be anywhere from wiry to soft, and may be straight, wavy, or curly. Many Labradoodles do shed, although the coat usually sheds less and has less dog odor than that of a Labrador Retriever.



Like most Labrador Retrievers and Poodles, Labradoodles are generally friendly, energetic and good with families and children (although as with any dog the temperament may vary between individuals). Labradoodles often display an affinity for water and strong swimming ability from their parent breeds.



Like their parent breeds, both of which are amongst the world’s most intelligent dog breeds,Labradoodles are very intelligent and quite trainable, often seeking commands and exhibiting behavior consistent with finding pleasure in learning

    I am interested in a very light color male labradoodle from very sweet parents. I like large paws and a pretty face. Please tell me how much they cost?
    Thank you.
