Our question this week was:

Dr. Debra – what do you think of labradoodles? I was thinking of getting one. I am married and have one son that is 8 years old.

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote asking about my opinion on the labradoodle. As you probably know, the labradoodle is a cross between a Labrador retriever and a standard poodle. Many dog lovers enjoy this breed because they have some of the good traits of both breeds. Most dogs will look more like a Labrador but have slightly curly hair but their size, shape, confirmation and hair color/texture will vary depending on the specific dog and parent dogs.

In general, given that the parents are good dogs (good behavioral traits and good genetics) – labradoodles are great dogs. They are known to have minimal shedding, be quite athletic with a good temperament.

An article that might be helpful to you gives you more information on this breed mix. Labradoodle - Choosing a Labradoodle.

Best of luck!

Dr. Debra
