The Difference in Doodles: All About the Labradoodle
Here at Happy Doodle Farm, we offer a number of doodle breeds from Goldendoodles, Labradoodles, Bernedoodles and mini Labradoodles. What’s the difference between them all? In this blog series, we’ll cover the difference between each of the doodle varieties that we offer. Read below to find out everything you need to know about the Labradoodles.
Labradors are known for being calm and affectionate, which is what you can expect with a Labradoodle. They are known to be great for busier homes and are considered extroverts. Be prepared for lots of energy and socializing! They are lovers, not fighters and are said to be “playful like a lab and smart like a poodle.”
While a purebred poodle has a tight, curly coat, a Labradoodle will have a longer, glossier coat which needs to be brushed regularly. Labradoodles typically have a yellow, chocolate, white, cream or red coat, but can sometimes have a parti, brindle or merle coat. Their adult coats often don’t grow in until they are around 1 year old and they are one of the best breeds for allergy sufferers
They are extremely intelligent and fairly easy to train, just as a Goldendoodle is, but, because they are so smart, they can also develop bad habits easily, so be sure to train them on how not to behave, as well. Because of their temperament, aggression when training Labradoodles isn’t
effective. It’s important to be patient when training your Labradoodle puppy so that it knows that you are to be trusted.
A standard Labradoodle is considered to be a medium to large sized dog that typically weighs between 50-70 pounds; a medium Labradoodle can range from 30-45 pounds.
