The Labradoodle is a relatively young breed. The first mention of a mestizo of a Labrador and a poodle dates back to 1955. Despite this, the dog became popular only after almost 30 years, in 1988. Australian guide dog breeder Wally Conron crossed a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. He hoped to breed a hypoallergenic dog. But alas, the experiment failed. But the resulting puppy had outstanding learning abilities. Representatives of the breed serve in the police, work as doctors and, of course, guides.
Interestingly, the character of a dog largely depends on its parents. Today there are no specific rules for crossing. Many breeders still choose to use the Labrador and Poodle in breeding. In this case, the result can be unpredictable: some dogs will be more like a poodle, a quiet intellectual, others like a Labrador, a noisy kind person.
Be that as it may, the Labradoodle is sure to become a favorite companion for a family with small children. These dogs make excellent nannies: an affectionate and gentle dog is ready to spend around the clock with the kids. And adults can be calm: he will endure any trick of the little owner.
Labradoodle needs the company of a family, without proper attention the dog begins to feel sad and yearn. Therefore, such a pet is unlikely to suit a lonely and busy person.
Representatives of the breed are extremely curious. It manifests itself literally in everything, but especially in education. Dogs learn new commands with interest, it is a pleasure to train them, even a beginner can handle it.
If you are planning to get a labradoodle, but you already have animals in the house, you should not worry: dogs have a calm disposition and are good with other animals, even cats.
Labradudl’s care depends on the type of wool. Animals with curly hair are often combed almost daily. Pets, whose wool closer to Labrador’s wool can be combed less often a couple of times a week will be enough. During molting in the fall and spring this procedure should be carried out almost every day.
It is important to monitor the health of the ears, eyes and teeth of the dog. They must be inspected weekly, cleaned in time. So that the favorite’s teeth remain healthy, periodically offer him solid chewing goodies.
Conditions of detention
Labradudl can live in a city apartment, provided that long frequent walks. The dog should walk 2-3 times a day. Representatives of the breed are quite active, so you can run and ride a bike with them. In addition, it is recommended to go to the park or in the forest with a pet to go a couple of times a week so that it can warm up in the fresh air.
