The Labradoodle is a mixture between a Standard Poodle and a Labrador Retriever. This is a so-called 'hybrid' breed, which is gaining more and more popularity. Labradoodles can be found in different sizes, depending on the size of the Poodle that the Labrador has been crossed with.
This mix was created to provide a companion dog that doesn't shed much hair and would be able to serve people with allergies. Their fur is mostly long, similar to a poodle, and regular grooming is required. They can come in various colours - brown, gold or black.
The Labradoodle's temperament is loving and friendly. They are very easy to train and adjust well to new situations. Great for first time dog owners or families, Labradoodles are social and friendly to dogs, humans and other animals alike. They make a great family dog as they love to play, obey and please, but also to be active with the family. Being a mix of Labrador and Poodle, most of all they love a good swim in any water.
They enjoy close contact with their humans and certainly love cuddling on the couch. This breed tends to be quite sensible and they make a great companion for kids, with whom they love to play and rumble.
