Poodles and Labradoodles are two of the breeds recognized as being allergy friendly dogs. Poodles often times start with fluffier hair that somewhat resembles a cotton ball and as they grow older it will become curlier. Labradoodles coats often change the same way, however there are several different hair types and different “generations” of labradoodles. This means it is important to work with a breeder/groomer who understands these variances so as to have the best possible chance of being matched up with the labradoodle that best fits your needs.
Poodles are arguably the second smartest dog. This combined with the fact they are viewed as an allergy friendly dog with loving personalities makes them an ideal dog for cross breeding. Many of the "designer dog" breeds are crossed with poodles, including the Labradoodle. Labradoodles are a cross between the Labrador Retriever and the Poodle and are often considered to be the seventh smartest dog. As a result the Labradoodle breed is recognized as a cross between two "top ten" dog breeds and was first created to fill the need for a better service dog, and has continued to be used for this purpose even today.
While Poodles and Labradoodles can naturally be a healthier breed than some dogs, even they are not exempt from the possibility of some diseases. That is why at Lovely Little Labradoodles we genetically test all of our dogs to assure they are free from common diseases. We also go a step farther and offer a two-year health guarantee on all of our puppies.
Poodles and Labradoodles are friendly, devoted, playful and all-around good-natured pets that get along well with both people of all ages and other animals. But just like any dog the key is proper socialization. Lovely Little Labradoodles starts that process early, introducing our puppies to a variety of people and experiences to assist in providing our fur baby families with well-adjusted puppies.
Both Poodles and Labradoodles are generally moderate to high energy dogs depending on the individual personality and age of the dog. These dogs need human interaction and stimuli to keep them busy. They are good pets for both families and individuals because they thrive off love and affection (think puppy cuddle time) and they adore games and activities. With basic exercise both breeds are ideal for people who live in apartments.
Poodles and Labradoodles have various grooming needs depending on coat type, Lovely Little Labradoodles is here to help every family pick the right puppy for their lifestyle.
