Labradoodle Dog Breed Info & Pictures

The Labradoodle is an intelligent, friendly breed that results from a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. This breed was intended to be a hypoallergenic service dog, and their coat is divided into three categories: wool (tightly curled), hair (similar to a Labradors coat), or fleece (soft and wavy). Labradoodles also come in three sizes: the miniature Labradoodle, medium, and standard. The Australian Labradoodle refers to a crossbreed that has been bred over multiple generations, and the specific breeds in their ancestry can vary. While your Labradoodles personality and coat color may vary depending on their parents, one thing is consistent across all Labradoodle puppies: theyre wonderful companions!
