A labradoodle is a crossbreed dog created by crossing the Labrador Retriever and the Standard, Miniature or Toy
Poodle. The term first appeared in 1955, but was not popularized until 1988, when the mix began to be used as a
hypoallergenic guide dog. Currently, they are not considered a breed by any major fancier and breeder organization.
Not all labradoodles are hypoallergenic, but it is a quality that many look for and appreciate in this type of crossbreed.
Labradoodles are known for their intelligence, level-headedness, affection, sociability and cheerful disposition. Ideally,
a Labradoodle is likely to be smart and highly trainable, thanks to the Poodle’s intelligence and the Lab’s love of working
with people. If you train a Labradoodle with positive reinforcement techniques, showing him what you like by rewarding
him with praise, play and treats, he’s likely to learn quickly and happily. Like most Labrador Retrievers and poodles,
labradoodles are generally friendly, energetic and good with families and children. Labradoodles often display an
affinity for water and strong swimming ability from their parent breeds.
Their parent breeds are both amongst the world's most intelligent dog breeds, in which the poodle is believed to be the
smartest (only aside from the border collie).
A smart and sociable dog, the Labradoodle will make friends with everyone he meets. Plus, his coat is hypoallergenic,
making it the perfect choice for people who have allergies. Because it’s a hybrid dog, no two Labradoodles look the
same, so it’s hard to achieve coat standards. But if you’re looking for a happy-go-luck dog that just wants to be loved
(so it can love you in return), it’s worth your while to seriously look into the Labradoodle. Labradoodles can have
different types of fur. Some look like shaggy retrievers, others resemble a Poodle with loose curls. Many fall
somewhere in between. They are not low-maintenance dogs when it comes to grooming (unless F1 Generation). Plan to
brush the Labradoodle at least every other day using a slicker brush, and have him clipped every 8 to 12 weeks.
Is the Labradoodle the Right Breed for you?
Moderate Maintenance: Grooming should be performed regularly to keep its fur in good shape.
Moderate Shedding: Expect this dog to shed if F1 variety. Brushing will reduce shedding as well as make the coat
softer and cleaner. F1b and F1b.b varieties should shed minimally if at all, it will depend on the coat.
Great Therapy Ability: Labradoodles are very smart and will learn anything you take the time to teach them.
Fairly Active: It will need regular exercise to maintain its fitness. Trips to the dog park are a great idea.
Good with Kids: This is a suitable breed for kids and is known to be playful, energetic, and affectionate around them.
Labradoodles come in many colors. Most often you will see them in Cream, Red, Apricot, Caramel, Chocolate and Black.
They can be found in Parti colors as well which is equal amounts of Black/White, Chocolate/White or Apricot/White.
Mismark coloring is also found in some Labradoodles, this is a solid color body of any color along with a white blaze up
the face, white chest and four white paws.
Because both the Labrador Retriever and Standard sized Poodles tend to be larger breeds, Labradoodles tend to be as
well. However, F1b Labradoodles come in many different size ranges depending on the size of the parents. You may
also find smaller sized F1s but mostly the F1bs will be when you can start downsizing breedings more efficiently.

F1b Miniature/Medium : 25-45 pounds grown (sometimes mini/mediums will mature larger or smaller)
