The Labradoodle is an amazingly smart breed of dog that results from the careful breeding of a Labrador retriever, Poodle and Spaniel . The first Labradoodles were bred in Victoria, Australia, with the goal of producing a non-allergenic companion therapy dog. The Australian linage is used to downsize the labradoodle over generations, not using toy poodle which would bring in a unusual build and non traditional labradoodle personality. The American labradoodle process of breeding a Labradoodle begins with the initial breeding of a Lab to a Poodle (this initial breeding is referred to as "F1" in the breeding vernacular). Next, the offspring are bred back to a poodle, in order to reinforce the poodle genetics into the cross (this second breeding is typically referred to as "F1B"). Subsequently, offspring are bred Labradoodle to Labradoodle. After several generations of this Labradoodle-to-Labradoodle breeding, the offspring become multi-generation Labradoodles. Throughout this process, a multi-generation dog may be bred back to a poodle four out of every nine generations to reinforce the poodle genetics.
In addition to being non-allergenic and non-shedding, Labradoodles are known for their characteristically wavy fleece coats, their intelligence, their upbeat nature and their incredibly friendly temperaments. As such, it is no surprise that these dogs are fast becoming among the most beloved breeds available.
The Labradoodle can come in several different colors, including apricot, red, cream, chocolate, black, white, and white with a mixture of colors. In addition, there are three basic sizes. Standard Labradoodles are the largest, measuring 21-25 inches and weighing over 43 pounds. Medium Labradoodles, measuring 17-20 inches, weigh between 33 and 43 pounds. Finally, Miniature Labradoodles measure up to 16 inches, and weigh up to 33 pounds. The varied sizes and appearances of Labradoodles means that every family can find one that is a perfect fit for their home.
Enspite of what AKC wants the poodle to be shown like the Standard Poodle is a water loving hunting dog. Their tails are docked for this reason. They are pointers and gun dogs and were cut with the pom-poms on their bodies to provide extra warmth for their vital organs.
