Have you ever wished that you could take all the benefits of low shedding breed with the friendliness of another? Well, then you might want to consider the Labradoodle. Originally first professionally bred in Australia by a veterinarian, this designer breed has quickly become popular the world over especially in the United States. In an effort to help our readers stay knowledgeable about the different dogs we share our world with, we compile a list of 10 Great Things About Owning a Labradoodle.
- Easy to Train
Both Poodles and Labradors are known for being highly intelligent creatures. As a result, when you combine both breeds you get a really smart pup, which means training them is a lot easier.
- Easy to groom
Labradors have short coats, while poodles have coats known for their lack of shedding. As a result, you have a dog that is really easy to groom. A quick brush every known and again with a bath every so often and your Labradoodle is good to go!
- Labradoodles help keep you Active
Considered to be quite active, Labradoodles require a good walk at least once a day and some space to run around in from time to time, like a park or backyard. By doing this you are not only keeping your pooch happy but you, too, are staying active, which is never a bad thing.
- They come in three sizes
Because Poodles come in three sizes that means that your Labradoodle may come in any of these three sizes: miniature, medium and standard, which is very helpful depending on what you or your family is looking for in your pet.
- They come in three coat types
Another great benefit of the Labradoodle is that they also come in three different coats, which are all equally adorable. Some Labradoodles have hair, others have fleece and then some have wool!
- Great family dogs
Known for being laid back and kind, Labradoodles make excellent family dogs and are wonderful with children.
- Low shedding

- Can live almost anywhere
As long as you keep your Labradoodle well exercised they are happy living anywhere as long as their family is with them. Unlike some large dogs, they do not require a lot of square footage to be comfortable.
