Labradoodle Facts

The Labradoodle and the Poodle; two beautiful breeds that produce the Labradoodle. Both breeds are intelligent, gentle, loving animals that enjoy spending time around people. They get along well with children as well as adults so, therefore, can be considered suitable as family dogs.

The Poodle is a highly intelligent dog that loves to be trained. The breed is intense and can get wholly into being trained; this makes them an ideal canine for agility competitions or obedience trials. In addition, they are eager to please their owners, so they will not easily give up even if faced with challenging tasks. When properly trained, the Poodle can live in harmony with other dogs, although he does need lots of exercises because he has the energy to spare.

A Labrador is a breed with an extremely friendly nature. They have no aggression tendencies and are always willing to be around people. The fact that they love being in the company of humans is one of the reasons why they make very good family pets. If you enjoy spending time outdoors, then you will find the Goldendoodle ideal for walks or trips to the beach because he loves water and enjoys swimming at all times.

Labradoodle usually weigh between 50 and 70 pounds, making them ideal dogs for active families who love staying most of the time outdoors. However, it has been shown that these dogs take after their poodle parents much more when it comes to shedding coats while taking after their golden retriever parents when it comes to swimming ability.

Are Labradoodles aggressive?

A lot of people wonder if the Labradoodle is an aggressive dog. The answer is no; in fact, they are not. They just love being around people and want to be close to them most of the time, but this does not mean they are territorial dogs.

On the other hand, Labradoodle are intelligent and easygoing dogs that need daily exercise to keep off unwanted pounds, and at least once a week, you should take them out for a walk.

This breed is known to be very friendly with children and great family dogs simultaneously. 

This dog will play lots of games all day long, but if kids are too rough, it shouldn’t always be included in their games. After all, you can feel much safer having your child playing with a Labradoodle than with most other types of dog!

Labradoodle Training

Training a Labradoodle requires patience and consistency. They are intelligent dogs and love to learn new things, but they also have their minds, making them quite charming at times! But like other canine breeds, Labradoodle need basic obedience training, such as walking nicely on a leash, staying in one place while you leave the room, and dropping an item from their mouth when asked.
One way to help your doodle learn his commands is by using positive reinforcement techniques. This involves rewarding him whenever he does something that pleases you, such as sitting when you ask him to. This way, he will learn quickly and enjoy working with you.

This is a dog who loves its owner and wants to please her! Your doodle will quickly become the perfect companion with proper care and guidance from an experienced trainer. Labradoodles love being part of a family and look forward to pleasing their owners daily by learning new tricks or performing old ones with ease.

Labradoodle life expectancy

The Labradoodle has a typical lifespan of around 10 to 15 years.
Also, it is known to be quite a healthy dog with few health problems associated with the breed, such as skin allergies, hip dysplasia, cataracts, etc.

Is a Labradoodle better than a Goldendoodle?

The Labradoodle and the Goldendoodle are very similar dogs! In fact, they’re so similar that some people would say that a Labradoodle is just a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle.

The difference between the two dogs lies in the coat colors and sizes – while most Goldendoodles are much larger than most Labradoodles, some smaller labs are available.

The grooming differences also affect the work needed to maintain each dog’s coat. For example, the Goldendoodle needs slightly more grooming than its lab counterpart.

Because of its long coat, the Goldendoodle sheds more than a Labradoodle does.
Labradoodles and Goldendoodles are both excellent family dogs who make great pets!

How big are they?

Male Labradoodle are 60-70 pounds, and females are 50-60. They generally grow to be about 2 feet tall at their shoulder; however, some can get taller depending on how much exercise he gets. These dogs have a lifespan of about 10-15 years.

Are Labradoodles smart?

You bet! Labradoodle are extremely smart. In fact, Poodles are the 2nd most intelligent dog after the Border Collie (based on “The Intelligence of Dogs,” a book written by Stanley Coren, a professor of canine psychology) while the Labrador is the 7th most intelligent dog. So if you want a dog that will fetch and retrieve things, this is the perfect dog for you!

Labradoodle And Cats

No problem at all! Labradoodle get very well along with cats – due to their low prey drive. They would most likely not chase a cat – as they are an easygoing dog breed with a calm, relaxed, and friendly personality. So chances are, your cat will still be the boss at home, even with a Labradoodle around.

Are Labradoodles good family pets?

Absolutely! The Labradoodle is a very loving, affectionate dog that loves its family. It will get along great with kids and other pets in your house, as long as it was properly socialized during the first weeks of its life – that’s when puppies learn how to interact and play with others (and itself).
If you’d like a puppy that’s friendly and playful, this is the perfect dog for you!

Are Labradoodles Hypoallergenic?

No. These dogs are not considered hypoallergenic dogs. They shed less than most other dogs due to their poodle parents, but not enough to be considered hypoallergenic. A dog’s dander is not the only cause of allergies, though this is a common misconception regarding dogs and their hair. The real culprit that can leave humans with an immune response after contact with a dog are proteins found in saliva and urine, which then stick onto the dog’s fur. 


The Labradoodle sheds more than the typical Poodle. A Labradoodle may shed less because of the poodle part. Some people have said that their pup didn’t shed at all! A good way to keep your house clean is to brush them every day or every other day.

What Brush To Use For My Labradoodle?

All dogs need daily brushing, no matter their coat type. Brushing not only keeps their coat clean and healthy, but it also reduces shedding as well!

How to Brush Your Dogs Coat?

I recommend using a slicker brush. They’re excellent at getting through long fur. You can also use a pin brush – if you prefer more control when brushing your dog (i.e., remove mats).
Labradoodles have an adorable coat that is incredibly soft and fluffy! However, the downside of this type of coat is that it sheds. If you don’t like walking around with hair on your face all day, I suggest brushing your pup daily!


The Labradoodle is a crossbred dog produced from crossing the Labradoodle and the Poodle. They are as smart, cute, social, and friendly as the parent breeds. The Labradoodle is excellent with kids making them a great family dog. These dogs have medium-high energy levels, which means they need daily walks or be taken out to play in a large fenced yard.

The Labradoodle is a low shedding dog, but they do shed all year round, so regularly brushing your dog will become part of your routine. Labradoodles also love digging, so if you don’t want holes in your backyard, a doodle will not be the right choice.
