are extremely intelligent, friendly dogs that were first bred in Australia, by Wally Conran.
Labradoodles are very social. They
easily accept other dogs and new people. In fact, they welcome newcomers into the pack with delight. Although
they may bark when a stranger is near their territory, they will not go beyond that into any type of “attack
“mode. As soon as they have a chance to sniff the stranger, that person or animal is welcome. A labradoodle
can’t be counted on to protect the home and family unless the intruder is intimidated by the size and sound of
Labradoodles owners are typically
surprised at how preceptive and responsive their pets are, seemingly capable of knowing what is wanted of them
ahead of time. Labradoodles have the tendency to outfox their owner if not trained. Owners MUST TRAIN their dogs!
This will bring harmony for both you and your pet.
It must be noted that labradoodles are NOT
“hypo-allergenic.” In fact, no dog is truly “hypo-allergenic” (completely non-reactive for allergy
sufferers.) Labradoodles are “allergy friendly” which means that people who suffer from allergies and
asthma tend to be more tolerant of them.
Doodles are one type of dog that have human like hair, although even among labadoodles there is a variation
in coats. So it is important to work with your breeder to make sure you get the coat that will work the best for
you. If your allergy is to the saliva of the dog. There is no one breed that is better for you them anther. Each
dog is different and there might not be a dog that you can have. The best thing for people that have allergy to
the saliva is not to let the dog lick you.

FIRST GENERATION BACK CROSS LABRADOODLES - (F1b)
back cross pup is the result of a first
generation bred back to a poodle or lab. Most are bred back to a poodle. The resulting dog is, on
average, 1/4 labrador retriever and 3/4 poodle. Although
there is less vigour in this crossing than in the original hybrid, the first generation back cross still is close
enough in the breeding tree to benefit from hybrid vigour. With each successive generation, vigour is

a multi generation labradoodle should be the result of generations of Labradoodle to labradoodle breeding, but
in practice back crosses and poodles are also used in the early generations.

breeding program as the breeding model for labradoodles, which suggested that poodles could be reintroduced into
