Labradoodles were the 1st doodles bred ! Labradoodles are a hybrid of Labrador Retrievers and Poodles. Labradoodles were originally bred when a need was seen for a dog to work with people with disabilities who also had allergies. Breeding the Labrador Retriever and the Poodle together resulted in a dog with a hypo-allergenic coat. This means little to no shedding.
Goldendoodles are a hybrid of Golden Retrievers and Poodles. They share the same characteristics as the labradoodle and provide another option for people with allergies. Combining two unrelated breeds leads to a healthier offspring. (assuming both parents are healthy ) Doodles are loyal companions with a typical lifespan of 12-15 years. Doodles have become an increasingly popular family pet. Doodles are known for their gentle and loving temperament. They are great with children. They usually get along well with other dogs and animals. They are social, energetic, and playful by nature.
Doodles are often easy to train because they are highly intelligent and eager to please their owners. Their train-ability also makes them popular as therapy and service dogs.
Doodles coats may be wavy, straight, or curly or any combination . They can feel like hair, like wool, or like fleece. Most all F1 doodles have wavy coat appearance. F1 doodles are good for people with mild to moderate allergies. F1B doodles and multi-generational doodles are recommended for people with moderate to severe allergies because they have the highest rate of being non-shedding.
Your Multi-generations will have the most virility in coat types !
Most will need professional grooming. We suggest what is called a “puppy cut.” If you like your doodle to have a long/full coat . You will need to brush often. We suggest every other day. If you do not groom regularly, matting will occur. If not groomed correctly, a groomer will have no choice but to save your doodle down and start over !! So make sure you brush regularly !!!
