All About Labradoodles

It’s not surprising that the Labradoodle has gained so much popularity over recent years.  Originally developed to be hypoallergenic guide dogs, the first planned crosses of Poodles and Labrador Retrievers were arranged by the Royal Guide Dog Association of Australia.  The result was a highly intelligent and sociable dog who not only possessed a nature appropriate  for guide dogs but also had a low-shedding coat.

The Labradoodle has the very best of qualities you can find in a dog!  She will get along great with children and other pets. She will be extremely clever, sociable and joyful, quick to learn unusual or special tasks. She will be active, comical at times, and could even try and outsmart its owner if undisciplined. It is very important to provide daily mental and physical exercise to avoid behavior issues. Labradoodles desire a firm but calm pack leader. She can be gentle, but she can also be joyful, showing her happiness through exuberant jumping and playing. She will also tend to be easygoing since the Labradoodle was bred not to be aggressive.  As is the case with any breed, some poorly bred ones aren’t that friendly, but at Roseberry Labradoodles we take into careful consideration each dogs temperament and their pedigree history. Our goal is to always produce a friendly, loyal companion that fits perfectly into a loving home environment. These attractive qualities are also what make the Labradoodle  a perfect candidate for therapy dog training.

Labradoodles are considered to be non to low shedders, especially those with a Fleece or Wool coat. Grooming requirements vary depending on the length and type of coat the dog has. Generally speaking, you can expect to brush a Labradoodle once or twice a week.  Some can be clipped or trimmed every six to eight weeks to keep the coat easy to maintain. Labradoodles should only be bathed when necessary-which isn’t often since they don’t have a noticeable doggy odor.
