Labradoodle Breed Information:
It's not surprising that the Labradoodle has gained such popularity so quickly. Originally developed to be hypoallergenic guide dogs, the first planned crosses of Poodles and Labradors were arranged by the Royal Guide Dogs Association of Australia. The result was a smart and sociable dog who not only possessed a nature appropriate for guide dogs but also had a low-shedding coat. The Labradoodle is a wildly popular and affectionate dog, great for almost any family.

Labradoodle Life Span:
Labradoodles are known to be a cheerful, loyal and sweet natured breed. The Labradooodle is an intelligent dog and loves to be included in all aspects of family life. They are a very affectionate, outgoing and playful breed, making them great for families with children and they generally get along well with other dogs, given they have been well socialised as a puppy.
Labradoodles come in a variety of coat types. Most are curly or wavy with varying amounts of wooly undercoat, they have little to no shedding. Most thick or curly coats need weekly or bi-weekly brushing and combing to keep ahead of tangling. Like all dog breeds with floppy ears, Labradoodles need to have their ears properly dried after their bath, and regularly checked to avoid infections.
Labradoodle Exercise Requirements:
Labradoodles have a high energy level, so will require a long brisk walk every day. If they are well socialised and outgoing, it is also a good idea to take them to parks or other pet friendly areas, where they can interact with other dogs and people and spend their energy.
