Below you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions we've gotten from previous clients. Whether you’ve just learned about Labradoodles for the first time or maybe you are a seasoned Labradoodle lover looking for what makes us unique, I’m happy to address any questions and concerns you may have.
Why a Labradoodle from us?
Our focus is on producing healthy and happy puppies for the betterment of the breed and the families they go home to. Labradoodles are still a fairly newer breed and it is important to us that each litter we bring into this world accurately represent the health, intelligence, elegance and beauty this breed is so well known for.
What is a Labradoodle?
Labradoodles are a cross between the Poodle and the Labrador Retriever. F1 Labradoodles are a first generation cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. Each time a Labradoodle is bred back to a poodle a "B" designation is added to the generation. So for example, an F1B Labradoodle is the result of an F1 Labradoodle bred back to a Poodle. Breeding back to the poodle is typically associated with an increased chance of heightened intelligence and low to no shed coats. One can also breed Labradoodle to Labradoodle. An F1 to an F1 for example would produce an F2. Just as an F1b bred to an F1 would produce an F2B. Coat types (including grooming requirements) personalities and concerns such as shedding (or lack there of) are all affected by these generational differences. Essentially not all Labradoodles are created equal and it is important that a future Labradoodle mom or dad consider what characteristics that would work best for their household.
How large are our Labradoodles?
We breed for both standard and mini Labradoodles. Standards tend to average around 60 pounds. Though some of our babies may stay as small as 40 pounds and some could be larger. As we are now moving into minis we anticipate our minis to average 30-35 pounds.
What environments are Labradoodles suited to?
Labradoodles have grown in popularity because of their universal adaptability. They are good for both individuals and for families. They acclimate well to both adults and children. They also have a demeanor that makes them generally good with other dogs. In addition they tend to live well even in smaller homes with a medium level of exercise.
How easy are Labradoodles to Train?
Labradoodles tend to be very intelligent and thus train readily. We recommend the crate training method to make house training easier. We even start litter box training our puppies at a young age to assist them in this transitions. Labradoodles typical high intelligence also means they enjoy mental stimulation. Lots of toys and items that stimulate their brains such as puzzles are encouraged.
