The Labradoodle is a hybrid dog of the Labrador retriever and standard poodle. The first labradoodle cross-breeding was carried out in the year 1989, by Wally Conron, who was head of the Australian Royal Guide Dogs Association at that time.
The crossbreeding came as a result of the request for a hypoallergenic guide dog for a blind woman who was a resident in Hawaii.
The blind woman who requested the cross-breeding had a husband who suffered from allergies, and as such, the couple had to make a compromise for a guide dog who would work as a guide dog for the blind wife, and also not cause an allergic reaction for the husband.
Hence, Wally performed the cross-breeding which birthed a litter of Labradoodles; one of which was Sultan, the only labradoodle puppy that fulfilled Wally and the couple’s wishes in a guide dog.
Today, the success of Wally in producing Sultan inspired other breeders to commence the cross-breeding of Labradors and poodles as therapy pets, detection work for official agencies and guide dogs.
Labradoodles are dogs known for their calm disposition, energy, friendliness, water-loving nature, obedience, playfulness, loyalty, and affection, and these are some of the reasons why they are one of the best family dogs amongst the dog family.
As a result of their intelligence, the labradoodle dog gets a hold of information very fast, and not only that, they also have the ability to comprehend and respond to information quickly too.
Due to their playful nature, it is possible for a labradoodle to get carried away when playing but through the help of proper training, the owner can easily curb the excessive playfulness and train them to know when to play and when not to play.
Irrespective of their playfulness and accommodating behavior, Labradoodles can get very shy and overly vigilant when it comes to having strangers and guests around.
The labradoodle is a homely dog hence it acclimatizes well in a family setting. There is no particular environment for the labradoodle, as they are adaptable animals who can feel homely in any type of apartment. But the ideal environment for a labradoodle is a live-in apartment, where they can snuggle and cuddle up.
Known for its water-loving nature, a labradoodle also thrives well in an environment where there is a clean body of water to swim and play in.
Although Labradoodles are homely animals, they need up to one minute of physical and mental exercises/training on a daily in an open place (which can be in your fenced yard or at the park).
And due to their eager nature, Labradoodles are highly trainable as they are always ready and excited to learn new things.
You can exercise and train this breed of dogs through the following processes; jogging, swimming, running, playing fetch, hide and seek, obedience training, concentration games, learning and socializing with other dogs outdoors.
Kindly bear it in mind that the more you exercise and train Labradoodles, the more active, agile and intelligent they become.
The Labradoodle comes in different coats types (wool, fleece and hair coats), texture (wavy, straight and curly), and colors (cream, chocolate, caramel, black, red, gold and apricot). The labradoodle’s coat requires brushing, combing and trimming regularly.
When you brush your labradoodle’s coat, take time to brush out the tangles and knots that might have occurred during the process of playing around.
Labradoodles grow hairs inside their ears, so the owners should be aware of this, and also make plans to pluck out the hair strands when they become too many in the ear; as too many hair strands in the ear can block air from circulating in the ear. Remember to clean the ears with a cotton ball to avoid ear infections.
Don’t forget to brush their teeth thrice a week and trim their nails once every two weeks. And don’t hesitate to invite a pet specialist when you notice awkward things in your labradoodle pet.
