Despite being a household name among many dog owners and canine enthusiasts, there’s a lot about this dog breed that people don’t know. If you’re looking into buying or adopting a Labradoodle, here are five fun facts you might have missed during your research!
- Labradoodles are not a cohesive breed.
There are many different types of Labradoodles, depending on the type of poodle they were crossed with! You can find Labradoodles of all shapes, sizes, and colours, depending on where you look!
- Not all Labradoodles are hypoallergenic.
While their single-layer coat helps prevent shedding and dander, not all Labradoodles are hypoallergenic. If you’re worried about allergies, ask for fur/saliva samples, or make a few visits to meet your new puppy before taking him home.
- Labradoodles are super smart!
Poodles and Labradors are known for their intelligence, and the Labradoodle contains the best of both breeds! However, this intelligence also makes them good at causing trouble, so be prepared to train your puppy.
- They love the water!
Be sure to let your puppy splash in some puddles, ponds, or lakes — Labradoodles, like their Labrador ancestors, love getting their paws wet.
- Labradoodles reflect their owners… and their breeders.
Like most dogs, Labradoodles are only as well-behaved and friendly as their owners. However, where they come from matters too. Puppy mills and amateur breeders will churn out low-quality dogs that might have genetic faults, false pedigrees, and health issues. If you’re set on getting a Labradoodle, you should seek out a breeder who has experience with the breed.
