About Labradoodles
The rise in popularity of these breeds is due to the dogs themselves. They are a wonderful hybrid. F1’s are a first generation cross, and as such they exhibit hybrid vigour. This is a phenomenon in animal breeding referring to the fact that the first cross between two unrelated purebred lines is healthier and grows better than either parent line. The hybrid cross between these two parent breeds are terrific family dogs, friendly, intelligent, affectionate and easy to train. Generations: The first generation (F1) is the product of a Poodle crossed with a Labrador / Golden Retriever. They are low shedding and are compatible for most families with mild alergies. The backcross (F1b) is produced by crossing a F1 with a Poodle again. These dogs will have a higher success rate for non-shedding and are recommended especially for families with moderate to severe allergies. Exercise: Labradoodles and Goldendoodles are very playful dogs and love to fetch and retrieve. Although they do not require extreem amounts of exercise, they do need regular exercise. A daily walk or romp in the back yard will be just fine. They really enjoy the outdoors, hiking, swimming and just being with their families. If your puppy is under one year old you do not want to over stress them with too much exercise. Size: Standards will be 21-24 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh (females) 45-65 lbs and (males) 60-85 lbs when full grown. Grooming: F1’s are lower maintenance than the original pure breds. They will require occasional brushing and baths. They will shed less than the Retriever but more than the Poodle. F1b’s generally require several clips a year, as their coats grow longer than a F1. When kept clipped, they only need the occasional brushing and baths. Longer fur will require regular brushing to keep it from getting matted.
