This beautiful breed is known for their intelligence and adaptability. Labradoodles are easy to train but should be exposed to formal training to reap lasting benefits. They are a loving companion, wonderful with children and thrive on family interaction. Their non-shedding coats (in multi-generational dogs) is a huge attraction to those who enjoy having their pets living alongside the family inside the home.
The range of colours is astounding and diverse, giving individuality to each dog. From the beautiful blacks whose coats shine in the light through to the reds, chocolates, creams, parti’s and so many other variations. Their coats require grooming (clipping) every 8 – 12 weeks, and they should be fully brushed every few days to avoid matts, which can become very painful.
Coats may be fleece, wool or hair. Hair coats are shedding coats, and mainly seen in the early generations. Fleece coats have a soft wavy appearance and wool coats have a curly appearance. Both fleece and wool coats are hypoallergenic.
There are three size ranges – miniature, medium and standard. The miniature height ranges from 35cm to 42cms with the weight range between 7kg to 13kg. The mediums range from 43 to 52 cm in height and 14 – 20 kg. The standard labradoodle will range from 53 - 63 cm with a weight range of 23 – 30kg.
