Labradoodles are available in three sizes and offer an allergy free pet option for their owners. A cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle, Labradoodles were originally bred as guide dogs for the disabled that need allergy free pets. Labradoodles are intelligent, making the possibilities for these dogs endless.
First bred by Wally Cochran in 1988, Labradoodles have become a popular breed choice among pet owners. Cochran first bred the breed as a request for a hypo-allergenic guide.
Labradoodles are bred in three different sizes. Standard Labradoodles are 23 to 26 inches tall, Medium are 18 to 21 inches, and Miniatures are 14 to 17 inches tall.
The temperament of the Labradoodle is excellent for a family environment. They are sociable, and non-aggressive.
The coat of a labradoodle is bred through genetics. They have either a Fleece, loose spiral curled coat or a Wool Curl coat. Both coats are hypo-allergenic.
Labradoodles are intelligent and very trainable. This makes them well suited as guide dogs and for therapy and assistance dogs.
