Although they are an increasingly popular breed, many
people still have numerous questions about Labradoodles.
They are, in fact, a cross between Standard Poodles and
Labrador Retrievers, but the mix is not as simple as it
seems. Bred in Australia since the 1970s, Labradoodles
are a breed unto themselves with a variety of specific
and determining criteria.
Information about Labradoodles
Labradoodles are extremely intelligent, friendly dogs
that combine the best elements from both of their
original breeds. Their fleece coat is usually
allergy/asthma-friendly and the dogs have no body odor.
Typically, only one monthly brushing is all that is
needed for maintenance, although some owners also prefer
trimming their dog's hair a couple of times a year.
Another important fact about Labradoodles is their
intelligence. Owners are typically surprised at how
responsive their pets are, seemingly capable of knowing
what is wanted of them ahead of time. Their heightened
intelligence also means that they need to be properly
trained to ensure proper obedience.
At Washington Labradoodles, our goal is to provide
you with all the information you need about Labradoodles
throughout the adoption process. Our puppies were born
in the United States but come from the original
Labradoodle breeding location at Tegan Park in
Australia. Although there are a number of locations
offering first generation Labradoodles, only
multi-generational dogs can guarantee all the expected
benefits from the breed.
