Are you looking at Labradoodle puppies? Maybe you’re thinking about getting a new family dog and this breed has popped up on your radar. While there are pros and cons to each breed, the truth is that Labradoodle puppies can be amazing. Here are some of the great things about owning a Labradoodle. If these appeal to you, definitely include Labradoodle puppies in your consideration as you look for a new dog.
Labradoodles are known for their amazing temperament. They’re a cross between Labrador Retrievers and Poodles. This makes them very intelligent and very happy to learn. However, many labradoodles want to be the ones in control, rather than letting you be in control. This means that you must persist in any training that you want to do with your puppy. However, when you put the time, efforts, and patients into the project, you will soon have a wonderful new dog.
Labradoodles are also highly social. They love to be around people and most of them love to be around other dogs, too. They often get excited when their people come home, wanting to run and jump and play with them. If you have small children, you will need to be careful with your Labradoodle puppies. They may jump on your children and knock them over, or scare them a little bit in their exuberance to play. Their friendliness does mean that they may not be the best Watch Dogs. They usually want to get to know strangers, rather than alerting you to their presents or guarding you against them.
Many labradoodles are hypoallergenic. A lot of them do not shed. However, this is not necessarily true. Labradoodle puppies that take after the poodle will probably not shed. On the other hand, you may get a labradoodle puppy that takes after the retriever, instead. These puppies are much more likely to shed because retrievers shed. Most Labradoodles at least shed less than other breeds. This doesn’t mean, however, that you may need to groom your dog more often, since its hair won’t fall out on its own.
Labradoodle puppies have a lot of energy. They need a good amount of exercise every single day. You can take them on walks, but it’s also a good idea to have a fenced-in yard where your puppy can run and play and enjoy being a dog out in the wide open. Do keep in mind that Labradoodle puppies can develop destructive behaviors if you cannot give them enough attention or they do not get enough exercise. This can include chewing on things or barking excessively.
