A North American or Early Gen Labradoodle is a cross between the two purebred breeds of Poodle and a Labrador Retriever.
An Australian Labradoodle has three main breeds in its lineage: Poodle, Labrdor Retreiver and Cocker Spaniel.Our Labradoodles have an awesome lineage introducing the North American Labradoodle into the Australian Labradoodle Line producing a strong and healthy genetic line of Australian Labradoodles.
Labradoodle coats are fleece with low to non-shedding qualities. They have less dog odor, and are considered hypo-allergenic. We like to explain the defintion of hypo-allergenic which is "less likely to cause allergic reactions." Since every person and every allergy is indiviual, no one can guarantee any dog completely free of allergen reactors. But Labradoodles do offer you one of the best choices in the hypo-allergenic dog world.
The Labradoodle breed is well known for trainability in the home as well as a wonderful tempermant and trainability as guide dogs, service dogs, and therapy dogs. These loving dogs typically display an intuition about current emotional needs of their family members. This ability to "key in" to emotions is what makes them such good lifetime companions. They are also know for their comic fun and loving warm preaonalities - very family attached dogs!
We like to call Kya our "velcro dog" she is so attached to us.
Labradoodles are happiest when they're with the people they love. They will adore you and show great affection and devotion. With the energy and work ethic of both the Lab and the Poodle, they're a joy to train. They are so eager to learn new skills that you need to keep on top of giving them something to learn in their puppy months. A Labradoodle often approaches life head-on and approaches every new friend with the same enthusiasm.
A Labradoodle is generally easy to train, since they're intelligent and eager to please.They usually do well with other dogs and pets in the household, and they're generally good with children--but they can be exuberant and may unintentionally jump through sheer boisterousness, although this can be quite easliy cured through diligent training. Overall, however, they make an excellent pet for a first-time dog owner. They can be calm and quiet while curled up on your feet, but they're also ready to jump up and play a game with only a moment's notice. They're not an ideal guard dog; although they will alert bark, they're more likely to invite an intruder in for tea on the good china.
The Labradoodle coat is hypo-allergenic and can range from low-shedding to basically non-shedding within a litter. It is a good coat for allergy families, although it must always be remembered that every person with allergies will have individual triggers. Hypo-allergenic means it is a breed that is less likely to trigger allergies.
The Labradoodle coat will need consistent grooming! Use proper dog brushes to take care of the fine coat to keep it from the tendency to mat and tangle. Choose a good groomer to help you clip the coat two to three times a year.
