Labradoodle Dogs 101 – Labrador Retriever Poodle Mix

“Of all the things I miss from veterinary
practice, puppy breath is one of the most fond memories!” – Dr. Tom Cat Labradoodles are becoming increasingly popular
as family pets due to their affectionate personality and the fact that Labradoodles quickly become
a child’s best friend. Labradoodles are considered as the pioneers
of the hybrid breeds. Whether you already proudly own a Labradoodle
or you are considering welcoming one into your family soon, we hope you will find the
following fun facts about Labradoodles interesting. Welcome to Animal Facts, I’m Leroy. Let’s Get Started. 10. As implied by the name, Labradoodles are a
cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle. The labradoodle entered the limelight in 1988,
when an Australian breeder successfully crossed the breeds to create guide dogs for the Royal
Guide Dogs Association of Australia that might also be attractive to those allergic to fur
and dander. Introduced to American breeders soon afterward,
the breed gained skyrocketing popularity because of its calm demeanor and hypoallergenic nature. 9. Blessed with the outstanding qualities found
firmly ingrained in the genes of their parent breeds, labradoodles are naturally intuitive,
social, loving and easily trained. They crave stimulation, require companionship
and have proven themselves to be great dogs for families, especially those with young
children. If you like this list take a moment to like

on popular culture, even making it into the Oxford English Dictionary – creating a new
winning word placement for Scrabble gamers. The creators of the famous board game Monopoly
have also hopped on the bandwagon, replacing the Scottish terrier icon with a labradoodle
on their “Here and Now” game version. 7. In the charity arena, Lucky the labradoodle,
a stuffed plush toy made by Lord & Taylor, has been utilized to raise money for the American
Cancer Society and other notable causes. 6. Poodles have a reputation for being hypoallergenic,
meaning that they can supposedly be tolerated by people who have allergies to dogs. Because they have the Poodle in their heritage,
Labradoodles are sometimes promoted as being hypoallergenic. But allergies are not caused by a particular
dog coat type but by dander, the dead skin cells that are shed by all dogs (and people). Some people with mild allergies react less
severely to particular dogs, but no dog can be guarenteed hypoallergenic. 5. Like Poodles, Labradoodles can vary in size
depending on the dominant genes inherited from their parents and ancestors. The three distinctive sizes are miniature,
medium and standard. Miniature Labradoodles are 14 to 16 inches
in height and can weigh up to 25 pounds. Medium sized Labradoodles can grow anywhere
between 17 and 21 inches and weigh up to 45 pounds. The standard size Labradoodle can weigh more
than 45 pounds as an adult and stand at least 22 inches tall. 4. Labradoodles are becoming so popular even
celebrities are welcoming them into their family. Celebrity owners include Jennifer Aniston,
Christie Brinkley, Tiger Woods, Hugh Panaro, and Joe Biden. 3. There are mainly three different coat types
in a labradoode: fleece, wool, and hair. The fleece coat is usually wavy and long and
has a silky feel to it. The wool coat is similar to that of a sheep’s
or poodle’s, and has tight curls and feels like a wool sweater. The hair coat is straight or slightly wavy
and has a wispy look to it. This type of coat is not as allergy friendly,
but most people with allergies will be able to tolerate it. Labradoodles come in almost any coat color,
ranging from Red, Black, Silver, Blue, Caramel, Chocolate, Cafe, Lavender, Cream, Apricot,
and white. The labradoodle can also have what is called
“parti” which is when it is a combination of two different colors like an apricot body
and then white patches mainly on the feet and chest. 2. Labradoodles are not a considered an official
dog breed by most dog expert organizations, although the American Kennel Club has now
created the ‘Canine Partners”category to include the Labradoodle and other hybrid breeds for
agility and other competitions. 1. Both Labradors and Poodles are long-living
breeds, so a 15-year-old Labradoodle is not unusual; average lifespan is 12+ years. Well, there ya have it, a mixed list about
the pioneers of the hybrid breeds. Did we miss and fun facts about Labradoodles? Sure we did. Tells us about them in the comments below. If you liked this list, gow with us by subscribing. And as always, catch ya next time.

    My Doodle is mostly everrything opposite of what you say and show of the breed. She is friendly but missed the Doodle train. She doesn't like water, will not allow me to clip her nails, has no interest in things a lab would be interested in doing. At 2.5 yrs old she continues to eat my blankets and socks if I dont watch her. She continues to jump on people. She is very cowardly. She does ride extremely well in the car. She is very stubborn. I woukd like help with her undesirable manners.

    I got the last pup Labradoodle, and he is so energetic, gentle and loving great company and a good listener..

  4. Kristel Tomlin says:

    It didn't work. It's NOT HYPOALLERGENIC. Dumb as a box of rocks & never calm down. The guy that breed the 2 breeds said he made the biggest mistake. The backyard breeders are lying to make money. They're a stupid mutt.

    I have a standard Australian labradoodle named Blue Boy. He is jet black with white on his chest the shape of a cross. He takes voice commands, whistles, and hand signals. Soft, wavy fleece coat.

  11. Fig Newton says:

    My Labradoodle weighs 130 lbs, 32" from base of neck to base of tail and tall enough for me at 5.2 to walk him by his collar (but I don't).
    he has wavy fleece and is the smartest and most loving dog I've ever had!
    he was a gift for my son we he was 5, after our old dogs passed away and wanted a "brother."
    Our Jasper will be 11 years old in 6 weeks and I hope he has more years ahead.

    I love my labradoodle puppy! His name is Westley. My crazy angel is black with one foot that has white toes. Earlier today he was rolling outside and stood up then plopped down to roll again. His belly is super ticklish and almost everywhere you scratch on his chubby belly he scratches with his leg.
