Why choose a Labradoodle?

Labradoodles are bred to meet a specific need. Our goal in breeding them is to blend the best qualities of the Poodle with those of the Labrador Retriever to develop a better all-around pet.

The ideal is to create non-shedding, non-aggressive, highly intelligent dogs with fewer genetic health issues and a longer life span than either of the breeds have individually.

These 2 breeds compliment each other very nicely. Of course no one can guarantee that every pup will have every quality you’re trying to get in them, but then neither do purebreds. Genetics simply don’t work that way. Yet with carefully choosing dams and studs that are strong in the areas you’re focussing on, the odds are improved greatly. The parents must be purebreds that meet their breed standards plus have the very best temperaments and strengths in specific areas that we’re looking to reproduce.

Labs are a very poplular pet breed because they’re loyal, affectionate, intelligent, easy going and friendly. Most are excellent with children, and love to play.

Poodles are non-shedding, even more intelligent, gentle, laid back, and form strong bonds with their entire family rather than singling out one person as many breeds tend to do.

On the downside, labs can be hyper, pushy, rough, roamers, and shed like there’s no end to it. Poodles can be aloof and have high maintenance coats that require a lot of grooming and since their hair grows like a persons does, it has to be cut or will become a matted mess.

By combining the 2 breeds, we aim for a low to non-shedding coat that’s much lower maintenance. We see a mellow, highly intelligent dog that devotes itself to the family and craves human interaction above all. They are easily trained and eager to please. We eliminate genetic diseases that take both parents to pass on disease. We see the friendly playfullness of the lab, and the mellow, gentle spirit of the poodle.

For many, this is the ideal pet.

  1. I really like how you talked about labradoodle puppy breeders being able to create non-shedding and intelligent dogs through taking the best qualities of the two breeds. I’ve been looking for a labradoodle puppy for our family because I don’t want to deal with the shedding. If we could find a labradoodle puppy breeder, I think it would be a great addition to our family!

    • If you want to be sure of getting a pup that doesn’t shed, you will want to check into multi gen Labradoodles rather than F1 pups like mine. Some of mine will shed. I cannot offer a guarantee on which ones won’t, so I tell buyers to expect them to shed, hope it’s less than a purebred lab sheds, and if they’re lucky enough to get a non shedding one, consider it a bonus!

      I love my F1 pups even when they shed. They’re generally not curly like poodles, so are lower maintenance too. Their personalities and temperaments have kept me fascinated by them. Such love and tolerance and pure joy just to be allowed to hang with us. No one else celebrates my coming home like my dogs.
